"Passed away" immediately became a top trending topic on Twitter.

Pialago apologized after using the wrong term during a TV Patrol interview Thursday night.

In a text message to ABS-CBN News, Pialago said she was tensed that time.

Can't imagine that this mistake will make me trending in social media. Sorry a lot! Please don't be too harsh, people.

Pine lost consciousness and collapsed around midnight after the awarding ceremony for the pageant's bikini competition at Solaire Resort & Casino in Parañaque City.

Pialago said her close friend fainted because she was "really hungry."

I kept on inviting her to eat breakfast but she didn't want to eat kasi we're under weight watch. There are like six girls who are under weight watch, for big tummies and stuff. We're not really allowed to eat much, so she's really depriving herself.

The Filipino-American aspiring beauty queen, who represents San Leonardo, Nueva Ecija in Miss Philippines Earth, was reportedly diagnosed with "electrolytes imbalance."

Leslie Ann Pine was discharged from the hospital Thursday morning.
