Co-workers defend Marian Rivera's 'pagtataray' on set of "Dyesebel"

May 26, 2008
"Hindi po kasi ako yung tipo ng tao na kapag inapi or binastos, magwawalang-kibo na lang ako, iiyak na lang ako sa isang sulok," says Marian Rivera about the unpleasant incident on the set of Dyesebel, which still circulates via a YouTube video.

Dyesebel's executive producer, director, and lead actor defended young actress Marian Rivera about the YouTube video showing her confronting an unidentified man on the set of GMA-7's fantaserye Dyesebel.

In a taped interview with Showbiz Central aired yesterday, May 25, Marian explained how that incident started. She said that she teased a guy who was taking a video on the set, which was prohibited during their taping for Dyesebel. (Click here to read related article)


"Nasa set po kami noon ng Dyesebel sa Subic at nangyari po 'yan isang buwan na po mahigit ang nakalilipas," Marian continued. "Parang sabi ko kay kuya, ‘Kuya, nagbi-video,' parang jinoke ko siya nang ganun. 'Tapos sinagot niya ako ng pabalang. Sabi niya sa akin, ‘Bakit, ikaw ba ang bini-video-han ko? Tapos hanggang sa umakyat ako, tinanong ko ulit siya, ‘Kuya, crew po ba kayo dito o staff?' Sabi niya, ‘Nanonood po ako dito, ano'ng pakialam mo?' Ay, sabi ko, iba na 'yan. Hindi naman ako papayag na aapi-apihin ng ganun.'"

While this was happening, said director Joyce Bernal in a separate interview, "'Yong instinct ko is ilayo si Marian." She added, "Inaamin din naman niya na uminit din talaga yung ulo niya, napikon siya. Siguro hindi naman natin matatantiya kung kailan tayo mapipikon."

Dyesebel's executive producer Helen Sese explained their rule on the set: "Doon sa production kasi, mayroon kaming policy na ginawa na bawal mag-video, bawal mag-picture ng cell phone o ng camera. Even yung mga crew namin at staff, they strictly follow that rule.

"So, noong time na 'yon kasi, labasan na ng mga empleyado kaya maraming tao ang nandodoon sa set. 'Yong mga tao, hindi na masyadong ma-control kasi 'yang mga 'yan naman, 'yang mga artista na 'yan, tao po 'yan. Napapagod din po 'yan, nahihirapan din."

Then, she defended Marian by saying, "I think 'yong ginawa naman ni Marian is to defend herself."

In a separate interview, Marian's leading man Dingdong Dantes said that the incident should not be used against Marian. He explained, "Unang-una, hindi naman dapat gamitin ito para sirain siya, e. Itong insidente naman na ito, pagpapakita lamang na, alam mo 'yon, that Marian is also a human. She has feelings, nasasaktan siya. Para sa kanya, 'yong nangyaring 'yon, e, na-offend siya."

Despite the continued dissemination of the video, Marian stood firm that she won't let anyone humiliate her.

"Kahit minu-minuto po nilang ipalabas yung video na 'yon, paulit-ulit ko pa rin pong sasabihin na basta mabastos na lang o maapi ng kahit sino. Babae po ako, dapat nirerespeto at ginagalang po ako."

She also thanked the people who stayed by her side despite the flak she got because of the video. "Alam ko na maraming tao ang nagmahahal sa akin at handang magtanggol para sa akin kaya nagpapasalamat po ako sa kanila dahil hindi sila nagsasawa. Kaya thank you po talaga sa inyo."

Lastly, she reminded the public that she won't be afraid of anyone. Marian confidently said, "May mga pagkakataon po kasi na makakaharap ako sa mga tao na mang-aapi sa akin, pero hindi ko po sila uurungan, lalabanan ko po sila. At hindi po kasi ako yung tipo ng tao na kapag inapi or binastos, magwawalang-kibo na lang ako, iiyak na lang ako sa isang sulok.

"Hindi ako ganun, at nagtatrahabo naman po ako nang maayos. Ang sa akin lang po, alam ko po artista ako, pero hindi po ibig sabiihin noon na kahit ano pong sabihin at gawin nila, puwede po."
