It's been awhile since we last saw actress and former FHM cover girl Michelle Madrigal. But just last March 3, she was spotted attending her sister Ehra Madrigal's wedding that was held in Boracay. (via

You probably remember Michelle as a finalist in Star Circle Quest, a reality-based talent competition; the same competition that launched the careers of other known celebrities such as Sandara Park, Melissa Ricks, Joseph Bitangcol, Erich Gonzales, Joross Gamboa, and Hero Angeles. She was also seen in TV shows like Maging Sino Ka Man, Adarna, Luna Mystik and variety show ASAP.

We last saw her in 2015 as part of the show Pasion De Amor in a supporting role, then, in a move that surprised fans, she flew to the United States in January the following year to pursue culinary arts.

She also clarified that she was not pregnant. "Peace out Manila! See y'all in 12 months... And no I ain't Preggo coz some people be making up shit. In about 21 hours, I'll be in an unfamiliar place with no family or friends. #CulinaryJourney #CookingWithMitch #ShitJustGotReal"
