Pokwang on intrigues about her: "Manhid na ako."


"Kung ano po ang reaksyon nila, 'yon po ang magiging reaksyon ko. Alangan namang in-snub ako, 'tapos ako pa 'yong 'Hi!' Napaka-showbiz na talaga no'n," Pokwang answered when asked how she would react if she meets her detractors one day.

Pokwang says she has become numb to the intrigues constantly thrown at her.

The comedienne was recently reported to be having a rift with entertainment columnist and Juicy! host Cristy Fermin.

This was after the veteran host featured on TV5's daily showbiz program a YouTube video showing the "Top 10 Ugliest," where Pokwang and her good friend Chokoleit landed on the first and second spots, respectively.

The issue became hotter after comedian Chokoleit defended his friend Pokwang in the microblogging site Twitter, which led Cristy to file a libel case against him.

In a previous interview with Candice Lim of YES! magazine, the talented stand-up comedian and host said he will not say sorry for what he posted until Cristy apologizes to him and Pokwang. (CLICK HERE to read related article)

"Bakit ako magso-sorry? For the longest time, grabe ang tira niya sa akin. She had it coming, parang sobra na yun. I know it is part of the job, may pitik-pitik, pero sumobra na!"


The Pilipinas Win na Win! co-host thanked her friend for his support. Pokwang said, "Si Chokie, alam naman niya. Nakita ko naman talaga ang suporta niya sa akin. Napatunayan niya talaga sa akin na kaibigan ko siya, may pera o wala, kahit noon pa."

"MOVE ON NA LANG." While Chokoleit is on defensive mode, Pokwang chooses to just ignore whatever is being said against her.

"Noong una parang nasasaktan ako. Pero ngayon, parang namanhid na ako. Hinahanap ko na nga minsan, e. Minsan nagtatanong ako, 'Bakit kaya wala?' Pero wala na, e.

"Gano'n pala, 'no, kapag hindi mo na pinapansin, napapagod din. Ako, napagod na akong masaktan, so dedma na lang," she related to the press during the media junket prepared for her upcoming concert series, Endangered Species, yesterday, September 29, at Little Asia restaurant, Tomas Morato, Quezon city.

The TV host-actress also mentioned that the negative articles she read almost every day in entertainment columns taught her to become more apathetic.


"Noong una talaga apektado ako. Pero ngayon, parang wala na, e. Ilang buwan na, halos araw-araw, parang namanhid na ako. Manhid na ako. Ako, siyempre, 'O sige, gawin niyo na lang ang trabaho ninyo, gagawin ko na lang ang akin,'" said Pokwang

What if she meets her detractors one day, how would she react?

Pokwang answered, "Kung ano po ang reaksyon nila, 'yon po ang magiging reaksyon ko. Alangan namang in-snub ako, 'tapos ako pa 'yong 'Hi!' Napaka-showbiz na talaga no'n."

Aside from ignoring the issues, Pokwang says she is trying to forget any ill feelings she has towards her detractors and is starting to move on with her life.

"Wala na akong sama ng loob, move on na lang," the very talented and well-liked host said in a serious tone.
