Ang unang maiisip mo sa kanya, 'di ba,Angelica [Katrina's role in Marimar]. Yung parang ang character niya sa sobrang effective niya doon sa Marimar."

She reiterated, "Hindi bagay ang role niya bilang isangmabait na bida. Hindi masama dahil effective siya as kontrabida."

Iwa was sure that Katrina would take no offense about herremark because, "Si Katrina kaibigan ko po siya. Sa mga nagpapaaway sa amin, bahala sila sa buhay nila."

She also reminded the media how open she was to them. Iwa told Startalk, "Kapag kaaway ko,sinasabi ko naman po sa inyo na kaaway ko yung tao. Hindi naman ako magtatago ng feelings ko. Ako, kilala niyo naman ako ever since StarStruck. Open naman ako sa mga nararamdaman ko."

KATRINA' REACTION. Meanwhile, in a brief live interview with Katrina, Iwa was right that her friend would not take her comment seriously.

"Magkaibigan po kami [ni Iwa], magkapatid po kami,"described Katrina about her relationship with fellow StarStruck hopeful.

The young actress also pleaded, "Mabait po si Iwa, kaibiganko po yung tao. Huwag niyo po kaming pag-awayin.

To those who still do not believe in hercapability as an actress, Katrina said, "Sabi ko nga po hindi namanlahat ng tao mapi-please ko na maniwala sila sa akin na kaya ko rin po. Kasi four years po, lahat ng roles kokontrabida po."

In the upcoming telenovelatitled Magdusa Ka, Katrina will play the role of the leading lady for the first time, while Iwa will be the kontrabida. Iwa's character in Joaquin Bordado was killed to free up her schedule for Magdusa Ka.
