    PBA courtside reporter and FHM model Rizza Diaz turns into a 'manang' during Lent

    Apr 1, 2015

    PBA courtside reporter and FHM model Rizza Diaz will not be showing any skin and, instead, will turn into a 'manang' during the Holy Week.

    Diaz looks like the type who will head off to the most exotic beach to take advantage of the Lenten break, but she's exactly the opposite.

    She usually stays at home during the Holy Week and sticks to traditions her family has observed for generations.

    "Naku ako eh makaluma," she told Spin.ph.

    So on Maunday Thursday, the ever busy courtside reporter would be joining her family make the rounds of churches in and around the metro for the traditional Visita Iglesia.

    And instead of hosting another corporate event where she is very much in demand, the charming court side girl will be leading the prayers in her neighborhood 'senakulo' by Good Friday.

    "Visita Iglesia on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday panata ko na 'yung taga-lead ng prayer sa senakulo sa amin," she said with a laugh.

    Black Saturday will be a day of total rest at home and by Easter Sunday, the beauteous sports reporter will also be back to work with her regular courtside reports in the PBA games.

    Meanwhile, there's no time to rest for Purefoods star James Yap on Holy Week.

    With the Hotshot locked in a best-of-five semifinal playoff with Talk 'N Text in the PBA Commissioner's Cup, Yap and his teammates will be spending a lot of their time in the gym while the whole nation takes a break.

    As much as they want to train, Super Liga team Foton will have no choice but to take an active break during the Holy Week.

    "No choice kami but to have a break," said Foton coach Vilet Ponce de Leon. "Most of my players have provinces to go home to and the venues are not available, so active break muna kami."

    The Tornadoes, who currently share second spot with Shopinas.com in the Philippine Super Liga All Filipino Conference, will instead have chores to do while their on break.

    The Super Liga will resume on April 6.
