Solenn Heussaff has accepted the fact that as a celebrity, there will always be negative comments about her or her relationship with her husband, businessman Nico Bolzico.
“It comes with the job, I guess,” she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other entertainment reporters at the launch of the new Kenny Rogers Roaster product held yesterday, July 11.
However, no matter how much she restrains herself from replying, Solenn admitted that sometimes she couldn't help herself.
Just like recently, when a female netizen commented about the way she treats Nico. She even asked Solenn, “Does he have work? Where he wears a [suit]?”
Solenn answered this in a very civil manner.
But the actress/host/visual artist did not deny that sometimes when dealing with haters online, “I get init-ulo.”
Solenn related, “Nico always tells me, 'Stop replying to them.' Sometimes I just can't help myself.
“But he's right, there's always negative people online.
“In person, I never really had anyone tell me bad things to my face.
“So, parang they don't exist, ganun na lang.”
30-SECOND RULE. Instead of giving attention to the negative comment, Nico said he always reminds his wife to just focus on the positive ones.
“I always tell Solenn that there's always gonna be people that will hate.
“But if you look at percentage-wise, they don't represent even...
“I'm not used to being a public figure. For me, these things are very new to me.
“One of the awesome things that I get out of this is receiving so much love from so many people that you have no idea who they are.
“And you'll really feel it, there's so much positivity.
“So, if I have one negative comment from someone... I mean, out of a thousand, one is bad, who cares?
“Focus only on the positive and that's all you have to see.
“In her case, it's the same, there's so many positive comments and one negative comment.
“But she'll focus on answering that particular person instead of answering to all the other amazing people sending you love.
“It's sending a wrong message.
“It's like, they send you one bad comment and they got your attention.”
Nico added, “People can think whatever they want, this is a free world, internet is free, social media is free.
“If the comment is negative and the fundamental is a discussion, that's okay.
“But if that's just pure hate—ignore, erase, block, that's it.”
Nico then related the simple rule that he always advises Solenn to follow: “If you read it, you'll have 30 seconds that you'll be so upset.
“But after 30 seconds, you forgot about it.
“If within those 30 seconds you acted, it's over. The whole day it will be on the new blah-blah.
“In those 30 seconds, you forget and you block it.
“Instead of putting all your energy to that person, put it to someone who, you know...
“I wish I could answer everyone who comments on me, you know, but I can't.”
WE'RE VERY REAL. Solenn, on the other hand, stressed that these very few negative comments won't stop them from keeping their followers updated about their life as a couple.
“We're very real. But, of course, we don't post everything.
“Siyempre, if we have arguments, we're not gonna post that. Or even special moments that we don't feel like sharing.
“We know naman what we're posting. We have naman our own mini private life.
“But we're very much real. Who we are in Instagram, it's who we are in person,” she ended.
