PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) bumped into pretty TV host Mariel Rodriguez last night, September 26, at the launching of Tim Yap's odm Limited Edition Watches II held at the Rockwell Tent in Makati City.
She eagerly told us the news that the second installment of ABS-CBN's Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition will officially unfold this coming October.
"Sa October 14 magbubukas na ulit ang house ni Kuya, I'm so excited," she yelped while making her way inside the venue.
As far as Wowowee is concerned, Mariel confided that she, and everyone involved with the show, is moving on after the "Wilyonaryo" fiasco that transpired last month.
"Syempre," she acknowledged when asked if the controversy affected her. "I'm part of the show, e. I get affected, lahat kami."
But there's no use crying over spilled milk as they say, so for now, Mariel would rather work to entertain the noontime viewers.
"We've moved on. I think we have to move on. Everyday we just try to make the show better which is try to make people happy. Kasi, like ako, personally wala naman akong ginagawang masama," she said.
She would also rather stay clear of the Joey de Leon-Willie Revillame feud, as she has nothing to gain from it.
"Kasi it's not my battle, so I'm in no position or whatsoever," Mariel politely said before adding, "And ayoko s'yang kalabanin sa totoo lang. Nirerespeto ko siya dahil he's Joey de Leon."
