Pinky Girl, aka Bonang's cousin, has revealed she quit her IT job after her colleagues discovered her celebrity family connection.

Having been thrust into the spotlight, the pink-haired socialite now claims the instant-fame has affected her professional life to such an extent that she's had to quit her IT job of seven years.
Pinky told Move Magazine; “I quit when my colleagues realised I was related to Bonang. Some started acting awkward. Especially, my female colleagues gave me a hard time. Some even called me Bonang’s handbag because I was always with her and they said all I do is hang around her.”
Aah the life of the rich and famous!

She's even tried her hand (and failed according to some) at being a V-Entertainment presenter.
A clip of the wannabe-presenter giving it a go went viral with many tweeps calling on her to keep her day job.
She's also keen on developing her own beauty range. Perhaps Bonang can give her tips on how to build a successful business so that people can stop saying she's Bonang's handbag.
