"Actually, sinabi na talaga sa akin na gagawin ko 'yong Super Inday, e, wala pa man ay excited na ako! Feeling ko proud na talaga ako at excited! Iba, e!"

Marian Rivera appeared on Showbiz Central yesterday, September 5, 2010. for the show's Behind the Wall segment. Looking good in a backless dress and wearing a beautiful smile, Marian was minutes away from answering questions from three close, but as yet unidentified, friends.

Dubbed as "informants," the three were to ask her juicy and personal questions.

Her smile turned into a grin when she heard the first question, which was, "Marami na ring kumakalat na issue tungkol sa mga artista, at hindi ka din nakakaiwas sa mga ito minsan. Ano naman ang reaksyon mo kapag may naririnig kang ganitong intriga?""

"Wala," she answered. "Wala talaga, e. Masasabi ko din na wala akong Facebook at mga nausong Friendster na iyan, para makaiwas na din, kasi iyon ang payo ng manager sa akin, e, so doon ako sa magiging lihis sa problema."

Marian's priority was clearly to ignore negative vibrations in showbiz and bask in the blessings she is enjoying right now.

"Bakit ko pa kailangan malaman ang mga negative, e, kung ang dami-daming blessings na nanidyan sa harapan ko?" she said.

Some of the bad things said about Marian may have already reached Marian, so, in all honesty, was she ever hurt by these? 

"Kung sasabihin ko kung ano mga nasaktan ako, e, parang lahat naman ng artista naiintriga, lahat naman may kapintasan," said Marian. "Aminado ako na hindi ako perpektong tao at nagkakamali ako."

"Pero, isa lang alam ko," she said later, "magtrabaho nang maayos at maraming mapaligaya!"

NO HELP REQUIRED. It was a surprise when the second informant revealed that Marian was doing all of her own housework. "Bakit hanggang ngayon hindi ka pa rin kumukuha ng kasambahay?"

"Ganito 'yan, pinili ko talaga na walang katulong. Bakit? Kasi sa bahay ko nararanasan na normal na tao ako, na maglinis ako, mag-vacuum ako, maglaba ng dapat labahan," explained Marian. "Pero mga hindi ko na kaya, siyempre pinapalabhan ko na. Sa bahay ko kasi nararamdam ko na ordinaryong tao ako. Kaya ako nagluluto, ako naglilinis, lahat ako!"

With a smile, she ended with, "Iyan ang isa sa ipagmamalaki ko—at marunong akong mamlantsa!"

How does she find time to do all those things?
