Maine Mendoza and Marian Rivera both ask fans to stop pitting them against each other. Maine tells the press, "Sobrang laking issue yun ngayon sa showbiz na parang they are pitting women against women, and I think it's just wrong, di ba?"


Maine Mendoza and Marian Rivera were quick to dismiss any issue of rivalry going on between them.

At their first endorsement deal together, Marian told the press that came to Romulo's Cafe in Quezon City last October 19, "Lingid din sa kaalaman ng mga tao, hindi kami very vocal ni Maine na nag-uusap sa [social media]… pero alam namin sa isa't-isa na susuportahan namin ang isa't-isa."

Both handled by the same manager Rams David under Triple A Talent Management, the Sunday Pinasaya host referred to Maine as more of her sister than her rival.

Marian underlined, "Magkapatid kaming dalawa. Kahit anong gawin niyo, magkapatid kaming dalawa.

"At behind that, nag-uusap kami ng mga personal na bagay na sabi ko nga minsan maganda rin maging private, e. Hindi lahat nalalaman ng mga tao." 

For Maine's part, she didn't understand where the issue came from.

The Eat Bulaga! regular remarked, "Galing po kami sa same management and wala po akong nakikitang rason personally para i-pit kami against each other."

In fact, Maine would often seek life advice from her "Ate Yan."

"Ate talaga ang tingin ko sa kanya kasi every time meron akong kailangan na tanungin or kailangan malaman about showbiz, isa siya sa pinaka-tanungan ko kasi ang tagal na rin niya.

"And for sure, nage-gets din niya yung pinagdadaanan ko."

Maine also expressed her dismay over this constant issue of pitting women against each other in showbiz.

She added, "Actually, kahit sino pong babae, e, di ba? Parang sobrang laking issue yun ngayon sa showbiz na parang they are pitting women against women, and I think it's just wrong, di ba?

"Parang wala talagang rason. So yun lang, sana kung sino man sila, itigil niyo na iyan! Kasi hindi tama, e.

"Ang nakakalungkot kasi, kadalasan yung mga ganun, babae rin. Dapat naiintindihan din nila yung ganun..."

Agreeing with her fellow Maxi Peel Zero endorser, Marian added, "Ang lungkot nun, ah.

"Tulad ng sabi ni Maine, magkapatid kaming dalawa.

"Kung alam niyo lang, kapag sa management namin, nagtutulungan kami. Kung puwede nga araw-araw, i-build up namin isa't-isa, bakit hindi?

"At saka dapat ang mga babae nagtutulungan, hindi ganyan. Parang crab mentality.

"Siguro kapag may mga taong ganun, hindi natin alam kung bakit ganon sila.

"Ang importante, kaming dalawa ni Maine, walang problema sa amin at mahal namin ang isa't-isa bilang magkapatid kami."
