Bikini model turned TV personality Aki Hoshino, 34, attended a publicity event for KFC in Shinjuku this week. The event, titled "Facebook Chicken Check-in Project Launch," was held to introduce the next generation of KFC stores. The new stores, which are currently under development in the capital, now have a "vegetable menu" as well as a new look.
Hoshino dutifully reproduced KFC slogans before telling the press, "I got my first ever part-time job here. When I was young, we only had KFC on birthdays and at Christmas. I wanted to have it every day."
When she was asked the obligatory question about her love life, Hoshino confessed that she had been taking cooking classes with "talent" and friend Yuko Ogura, 27, in preparation for married life. Asked which of the pair was likely to marry first, Hoshino replied, "I'd imagine Yuko would be first, right?"© Compiled from news reports
