Ever since Superstar Nora Aunor came back to the Philippines after living in the US for many years, the showbiz rivalry between her and Star For All Seasons Vilma Santos has been reborn. To give credit to these 2 grown women and Philippine showbiz icons, they’re amused and just taking it all in stride. Let their respective fans deal with it, HAHA! Anyhoo, Marian Rivera was asked if she’s either a Noranian or Vilmanian. Marian’s answer is very neutral.
Sa panayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Enteretainment Portal) kay Marian Rivera, naitanong namin kung sino ang mas paborito niya—ang Superstar na si Nora Aunor, o ang Star For All Seasons na si Vilma Santos.
Sa madaling salita, siya ba ay Noranian o Vilmanian?
“Hindi ko alam, parang lahat naman yata sila, ginusto silang dalawa nung araw, di ba?
“Walang itulak-kabigin sa kanilang dalawa,” sabi ni Marian.
Napanood daw niya ang Darna at Dyesebel ni Vilma, since parehong ginampanan ni Marian sa GMA-7 ang dalawang nabanggit na nilikhang mga karakter ni Mars Ravelo.
“Ay, oo naman!” sambit niya.
Hiningan din namin ng reaksiyon si Marian na ang rights ng Darna at Dyesebel ay nasa ABS-CBN na.
Aniya, “Hindi… nakakapanghinayang lang kasi yung Dyesebel at yung Darna, isa sa pinakamagandang gawin yun, e, di ba?”
At least nagawa na niyang pareho, di ba?
“Ayun na lang, at least thankful ako na nagawa ko siya parehas,” pahayag ni Marian.(source)
Good answer Marian. No need to get involved with this archaic showbiz rivalry that doesn’t contribute anything to the industry. I’m pretty sure Marian admires and respects both of them equally. There’s definitely nothing wrong with that.
