One question, though, since they clearly won the beauty lottery – will these lovely ladies capitalize on what the good Lord has given them? Or will they continue to pursue their own dreams?
Here’s a list of 25 non-showbiz sisters of famous celebs who prefer to say out of the limelight.
1. Coleen Mendoza
Coleen is a Maine Mendoza’s sister. The 23-year-old sister of Yaya Dub has a degree in Accountancy. While the two women are both beautiful, people might be hard pressed to find similarities in their facial features. Maine Mendoza has big round eyes, while Coleen is chinita.
2. Wendolyn “Twinkie” Chiu
Looking at pictures of Wendolyn, you would think she was a model or beauty queen. This chinita beauty is Kim Chiu’s flight attendant sister. In 2014, there were rumors swirling around linking her to heartthrob James Reid. Wendolyn said the rumors were just that – rumors.
3. Lou Muñoz
