An old video of StarStruck season one involving Yasmien Kurdi and Cristine Reyes is going viral.

The five-second clip uploaded by Twitter user @mattchupapi on August 12 was captioned: "me and my besties kung paano nabuo ang friendship namin."

The snippet shows Yasmien and Cristine confronting each other:

Cristine to Yasmien, "You're kinda plastic."

Yasmien replies, "Actually, na-find din kitang plastic."

This happened during the StarStruck season when Yasmien was hailed First Princess, while Cristine was the second contestant to be eliminated from the reality show.

THE FULL STORY OF THE "PLASTIC" VIDEO

The clip was pulled from a video uploaded by GMA-7's official StarStruck YouTube channel from Season Two.

As a primer, GMA-7 did a special recap of the first season with interviews from the finalists.

Yasmien was usually the person voted by her co-finalists to be eliminated from the competition because of her attitude.

Yasmien commented, "To be frank lang, iyong problems ko lang po sa StarStruck noon, mostly sa mga parents.

"Nanay ko inaaway, ako inaaway, hindi raw ako deserving, plastic daw talaga ako sa mga anak nila."

Cristine reacted to their "plastic" confrontation in a separate interview that aired in the episode.

She explained, "Kasi di ba, nagkakasama kami noong mga 30 [aspirants] pa lang kami?

"Siya talaga yung bukod tanging tao na..."

Cristine then frowned, but decided to stop herself from saying more.

She continued, laughing, "Ayoko na magsalita! Ayoko na, ayoko na! 'Tapos na yun, okay? Nandiyan si Mommy magagalit sa akin."

The season's Ultimate Female Survivor, Jennylyn Mercado, however, had a good laugh remembering the issue: "Ka-cheapan lang iyon, masyado niyang inintindi kaya ayun."

YASMIEN KURDI RECALLS STARSTRUCK FIGHTS

In a 2019 exclusive interview with PEP.ph where Yasmien recalled her journey as a StarStruck finalist, she also shared the fights that she used to have with the other girls.

She said about her fight with Cristine: "Di kami masyado nag-uusap ni Cristine noon, e.

"Kasi may nangyaring incident doon, sinabi niya on air, 'You know what, I find you plastic.'

"Sabi ko, 'You know what, I find you plastic, too.' Mema lang! Hahaha!"

Even then, Yasmien admitted there were really moments when their arguments became really intense, especially when rumors circulated about them badmouthing each other.

Yasmien recalled, "Dahil sa chismis, pero maliliit na away-away lang naman which is iyong chismis na iyon, iyon din iyong crineate ng StarStruck mismo.

"Nag-create sila ng chismis na sinabi ni ganito na ganito ka daw na sinabi ni ganito na ganyan ka daw."

Looking back, Yasmien said these issues prepared them for the worse in showbiz where controversies make good fodder for gossips.

She elaborated, "Iyon iyong parang challenge doon na kapag sa real world, maniniwala ka ba agad sa mga balita na sinabi ni ganito?

"E, noong mga panahon na iyon, siyempre, bata pa kami, agad kami naniniwala. Ang ending, away-away, gulo-gulo lahat.

"Iyon iyong mga bagay na... kasi usually, ang pinakamasayang part ng StarStruck iyong hindi nila nakikita sa on-cam kasi nakikita nila on-cam, mga challenges.

"Iyong masasayang moments namin iyong hindi nila nakikita, mga bonding moments namin, para kaming magkakapatid.

"Pero noong ginawa iyong issue na iyon, may mga nangyari off-cam na talagang nag-aaway kami. Sira na lahat ng friendship naming lahat.

"Iyon iyong huwag ka agad naniniwala sa chismis, kailangan i-confirm mo muna sa tao na ganito ka.

"Pero malilit na away lang naman, di naman siya major-major. Siyempre bata ka, naniniwala ka agad.

"Kasama iyon sa challenge ng pagiging artista mo in real life. Maniniwala ka ba talaga agad o hindi.

"Doon pa lang, na-train ka na agad na ganito iyong mundong ito, na huwag ka agad maniniwala hangga't wala kang confirmation na nanggaling sa tao."

How did they fix their issues?

Yasmien answered, "Nag-usap-usap kami masinsinan. 'Okay, saan ba ito nagsimula?'

"'Sinabi ni ganito na ganito ganito ka daw. 'Ah talaga? E, sinabi niya rin sa akin...'

"'Wala naman akong sinabing ganito, wala rin akong sinabing ganito.' 'Ah, pinag-aaway tayo.'

"Naisip na rin namin pero mga nasa sides namin, like sumasama sa aming mga magulang, siyempre, nagkaka-alit-alitan na rin kasi siyempre, 'Anak ko iyan! Inaway ng anak ko yung anak mo.'"

But Yasmien said things had changed through the years, "Nakakatawa kasi noong nasa competition kami, ang hot naming lahat.

"Pero ngayon, sobrang close naming lahat! Wala na yung mga ganoong issue.

"Meron kaming Viber group, meron kaming Messenger.

"Actually, nagyayaya sila, e. Yung huli naming pagkikita, parang year 2014 pa ata na kumpleto kami."

That was in the pilot episode of GMA-7's defunct morning talk-entertainment show, Basta Everyday Happy, where the first batch of StarStruck had a reunion for the pilot episode.
