Aiza Marquez thankful for offers of help from other celebrities


"Sabi ni Alessandra [de Rossi, inset, top] na kung kailangan ko daw maghanap ng bahay sasamahan daw niya ako. And si Ate Nadia [Montenegro, inset, below] naman sinabi niya na if I need help, text away lang naman daw siya," says Aiza Marquez about her fellow artists who offered her help.


Two weeks since her eviction from her rented Parañaque house, Aiza Marquez is slowly getting her life back in order. She has already found a place where she and her family can stay.

"Within the area pa rin, mga 10 minutes away from my old house. Tapos two rooms lang siya, unlike ‘yong dati naming tinirahan na tatlong kuwarto... Okay lang, tiyaga-tiyaga pa rin naman kasi masuwerte ‘yong bahay na ‘yon. Think positive!" said Aiza.

The young actress is currently promoting Angels, the movie produced by Angel Locsin and talent manager Becky Aguila, starring Angel, Marvin Agustin, Jennylyn Mercado, and Patrick Garcia. Aiza plays a supporting role.

Aiza says there were a few angels who helped her when she was driven out of her home.

She narrated, "Ang daming nag-offer na tumulong... Basta may mga nag-o-offer na kung kailangan namin ng tulong sa paghahanap ng bahay, sasama sila sa amin... Ayoko namang mag-grab nang mag-grab ng opportunity kasi kaya ko pa naman, e. Kaya pa naman namin. Kahit ‘yong mga hindi ko ka-close na mga tao, like Alessandra de Rossi [and] si Nadia Montenegro, nag-offer sila kung kailangan daw namin ng tulong."

Although she didn't accept the offers of help by Alessandra and Nadia, Aiza said she is still grateful to them.

"Sabi ni Alessandra na kung kailangan ko daw maghanap ng bahay sasamahan daw niya ako. And si Ate Nadia naman sinabi niya na if I need help, text away lang naman daw siya... Nag ‘thank you' lang ako kasi kahit hindi kami masyadong nagsasama, ‘yong pagiging concerned nila doon sa nangyari sa amin, napakalaking bagay na noon. Unexpected talaga na may ganoong mga tao talaga na handang tumulong sa 'yo," she said.

Aiza wanted to clarify that her family didn't owe her former landlord any money.

"Actually, wala kaming utang sa kanila. ‘Yon iyong gusto ko i-clear. Kasi ang pagkakaintindi ng mga nanonood, may utang kami sa [landlord namin]. Wala kaming utang. Kumbaga, ‘yong two months deposit namin, kinonsyum na namin ‘yon instead na magbabayad kami ng another month. Before na magbabayaran ulit, ang sabi namin iko-consume na namin ‘yong two months deposit. Nagpaalam naman kami nang maayos sa kanila, kaya lang binigyan kami ng five days lang [para makalipat]," explained Aiza.

The Angels supporting star said that her US-based father didn't know about the family's troubles until after they had moved into their new house.

"Noong time na nagkakaroon kami ng problema, hindi niya alam kasi wala kaming communication masyado... Kasi ayaw din naman dagdagan ‘yong problema niya, e, kasi may inaasikaso siyang problema niya rin doon. Ang layo niya, ayaw na namin bigyan siya ng sakit ng ulo. So hangga't kaya pa namin ng Mom ko, kaming dalawa lang ang dapat mag-asikaso," she said.

She added, "He is just a regular employee, e... Minsan pag wala pa akong suweldo, siya ang sumasalo ng pambayad ng bahay. Minsan pag wala siyang padala, ako naman ang sumasalo. So nagtutulungan lang talaga kaming dalawa."

Aiza explained that her father is saving up enough money for them to open their own business.

"Kasi mahilig magluto ‘yong Papa ko, e. Sabi niya mag-aral daw kami ng culinary para magtatayo kami ng maliit na restaurant, hopefully pag nanalo siya doon sa problema niya doon," she ended.
