Matet de Leon "lied" when asked about mom Nora Aunor on "Showbiz Central"

"Kinabahan lang ako.Siyempre, sa isyu na tungkol sa nanay ko, siyempre, ayokong... As muchas possible, ayaw kong kinakana siya, ganun," defends Matet de Leon when thelie detector did not agree with her answer about Nora Aunor's alleged marriage totalent manager Norie Sayo.


Former child star Matet de Leon dared to answer ShowbizCentral host John "Sweet" Lapus's questions in his segment "Love Me or Hate Me, ButDon't Lie to Me" last Sunday, November 23.

The questions were divided into three levels—easy,difficult, and "now or never" questions.Out of the six questions, two were determinedas a "lie" by the machine.

For the first level, John looked back on the earlier days ofher career.

The first question went: "Kasabayan mo noong araw bilang child star si Aiza Seguerra, kung hindiako nagkakamali ay magka-schoolmate pa 'ata kayo noon mga time na 'yan. Dumating ba sa point na personalan na angrivalry ninyo ni Aiza? To the point na hindi daw kayo nag-uusap tuwingnagkikita kayo sa school?"

Matet answered, "No," which the detector determined as"Truth."

John told Matet, "Magkaiba naman sila ng projects noon, diba? Sa 'yo ata mga fantasy, sa kanyacomedy."

To which Matet seconded. Then she added, "At saka feeling ko, masmagaling sa akin si Aiza before. Mas deserving siya ng mga awards kaysa saakin."

The second question referred to the teenage days of Matet inshowbiz. John asked, "Matet, siSunshine Dizon ay ka-close mo noong teenager days. Totoo ba na noong time daw na 'yon ay naging bad influence ka kaySunshine dahil ikaw daw ang nag-introduce sa kanya sa mundo ng all-night partyand drinking alcohol?"

Matet answered a big "No."

After the detector machine showed that it's the "Truth," Matetexplained, "Ilang beses lang kaming gumimik ni Sunshine. Kapag lumalabas kami, hindi inuman. May tatlong beses lang kaming lumabas. Ano kami, kapag lumalabas kami niyan, hindikami nagwawala. Ano kami, cool kami,hindi kami nagwawala."

MIGRATION TO NORWAY. After this, John probed the long-planned migration of Matet and husband Mickey Estrada with their kids to Norway. He asked, "Matet, totoo bang financial problems ang dahilan kayanaudlot ang pagma-migrate ninyo ng iyong mister, kasama ang inyong mga anak, saNorway?"

Matet gave a "No" response to which the lie-detector machine agreed.

When asked what happened to their plan, Matet explained,"Tuloy na tuloy na 'yon. Alam mo kasi,'yong opportunity, 'yong chance na 'yon, dumating 'yon kay Mickey hindi ko pasiya kilala. Kaya lang, hindi siyanatuloy kasi siguro hindi pa para sa amin.'Yon, nagkaproblema sa mga papers, ganun."

John then turned to Mickey and asked when they planned toarrange the documents needed for their migration.

"Ngayon, hindi po namin napag-uusapan ulit," heanswered. "Before kasi, 'yongpangalawang beses na dumating sa akin 'yong opportunity, buntis siya [Matet] ulit,so... Inasikaso ko 'yon kaso nagkaroon ngincident sa airline na mayroong nanganak habang nasa air. Ngayon, bawal."

WOMEN CLAIMING TO BE HER MOTHER. John also asked Matet aboutthe several women who claimed to be the former child star's real mother. "Matet, sa lahat ng nag-claim noong arawna sila raw ang iyong nanay, ni minsan ba, ikaw ba ay naramdaman mo na isa samga iyan ang tunay mong ina?" John asked.

The celebrity mom said "Yes" and the device agreed.

Then, Matet gave a little update on one of the women whoinsisted that she's her real mother. "'Yong babaeng 'yon, it turned out, hindi yata ako 'yong anak niya. Kasi, di ba, nakita ko siya, kamukha ko,ganyan. Hindi pala, kine-claim niyanganak niya, e, 21 years old, e, pa-18 pa lang ako noon. Siguro alam naman ng nanay kung ano anghitsura ng three years old o two years old sa bagong panganak. So, hindi ako 'yon."

ABOUT MATET'S SUPERSTAR MOM. For the difficult level, John went moreserious when he asked about Matet's eldest sibling Lotlot de Leon being their family provider.

The question went, "Matet, sumama ba ang loob mo sa iyongmommy, ang nag-iisang Superstar na si Nora Aunor, dahil for the longest time,e, ang Ate Lotlot mo daw ang tumatayong provider sa inyong magkakapatid?"

Matet's "No" answer for this question was determined as a"Lie" by the machine.

"Hindi naman ganun 'yon.Ano bang provider 'yon? Financial, ganun?" Matet immediately protested. "Parang ganun [provider] na nga, peronandiyan naman si Mommy tulad noong kasal ko, anak ko, nandiyan namansiya. Pero kapag mga immediate [needs],si Ate kasi... Siyempre, busy si Mommy."

She continued, "At saka naiintindihan ko naman nanay ko,hindi naman sasama ang loob ko sa kanya. Kapag may mga times na wala siya diyan, wala sa amin, kasi naiintindihanko kasi..."

Since Nora is now based in the U.S., Matet admitted that sherarely talks to her mom. In fact, as faras she remembered, the last time was last Christmas.

She explained, "Kasi si Mommy, hindi naman nagsasasagot 'yan samga text na ‘hi' lang. Pero ang text niyan, mga three pages."

For the "Now or Never" level, John asked theMatet if she believes the report saying that Nora married her talentmanager Norie Sayo in Las Vegas.

Matet, for the second time, was caught lying when she said"No" for an answer.

"Kinabahan lang ako!" defended Matet. "Siyempre, sa isyu na tungkol sa nanay ko, siyempre,ayokong... As much as possible, ayokong kinakana siya, ganun. Ako, totoo man o hindi, kung ano ang sinabing nanay ko, 'yon ang sinabi ng nanay ko.I will stand beside whatever she will say."

Before the segment ended, John asked if she has alreadytalked to her mom about the issue. According to Matet, "Hindi ko pa siya natatanong, so hindi koalam kung totoo o hindi. Kung totooman, okay lang. Kung hindi, okay lang din."
