In an interview on the late-night newscast "Bandila" on Thursday, Austin said she has been an avid viewer of "The Voice of the Philippines" particularly watching coach Lea whom she had been in a series of concerts in the United States in 2010.
"I am watching, with my sister-girlfriend Lea Salonga. She's my hunny-bunny, I love her. I just think she's, first of all, gorgeous. Speaking of people who can sing their fannies off, hers has been missing for a long time. She sang it off a long time ago. Love her. She's fabulous. And she's a great laedy, a great person." she said of Lea.
Austin is in the country for a series of shows in Manila and Davao.
