Nadia Montenegro on Annabelle Rama: “She’s one person who I know, siya lang 'ata ang kilala ko pumupunta sa simbahan araw-araw pero paglabas may sinusumpang tao…”

She admitted to questioning the rehearsal time of her daughters, who are both “minors.”

Nadia continued, “Kasi napakababaw, e… Isipin mo in one show, napakaraming artista, 30, 40, bakit lagi ang mga anak ko ‘yong 8:00 a.m.?

“Bakit ‘yong iba may 12:00 [n.n.], may 4:00 [p.m.], bakit hindi puwedeng after school?

“Puwede naman ‘yon, e, to the point na ako na gumagawa no’n, ako na gumagawa ng paraan. Ako na tumatawag sa mga E.P. or sa mga schedule manager kung puwedeng iurong si Yanna at si Ynna ng alas kuwatro para makapag-school pa sila, ‘yong gano’n…

“Pakikiusapan ko pa ‘yon kung puwede sila i-release ng 12 or 11, ‘yong gano’n, just to compensate with the schedule that she gave, na hindi man lang niya ako [tulungan], alam mo ‘yon?

“Kaya umabot sa point na ako pa daw ang nakikialam. I had to!”

Their incessant arguments began after Nadia realized, “Wala na siyang pakialam sa welfare ng mga bata.”

As a result, the day The Sisters, which starred Nadine Samonte, had its story conference, “Pinull-out nila [ang mga bata] right then and there.”

Anykka and Alyanna, of course, felt bad because they were enjoying what they were doing.

But Nadia’s reaction was unyielding, “Ayaw ko na, do’n na ko lumaban sa kanya… Bahala ka na sa buhay mo, nag-aaway na kami sa phone no’n.”


“IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY.” Out of the numerous statements and tweets that were published about the issue, she was in agreement with the controversial talent manager when the latter said, “Pera ang dahilan.”

Nadia reiterated: [it’s] all about money when it comes to Annabelle Rama.

But she refuted the assertion that her end goal is to manage her daughters.

Her defense:

“If I wanted money why did I sign with her?

“Like what I’ve said, I have three valid reasons why I trusted her to be the manager of my kids.
