In defense against Marian Rivera's allegations against her and her mother, Heart Evangelista holds a press conference to air her side of the story. "I want to settle this issue privately, pero kailangan kong i-defend ang sarili ko. The false and mean things that have been reported about me in the media and online have damaged my reputation. I have even received death threats from the fans of Marian Rivera. I am traumatized and very scared. Once and for all, I want to share the truth about what happened in Ilocos," Heart says in her opening statement.
Heart relates that her relationship with Marian was good when the filming of Temptation Island started. Marian's attitude suddenly changed when news came out that Dingdong Dantes is slated to work in a new soap opera with Heart Evangelista. Marian barged in Heart's room twice and shouted at the chinita actress, even threatening her with the words "Papatayin ka ng mga fans ko!"
Heart also explains the airport incident involving her mom and Marian. She says, "Gusto ko rin po linawin na wala pong confrontation na naganap. Hindi po totoo na nagdala kami ng napakaraming pulis. It was airport security po. Actually, in-assist lang po ang mommy ko ng dalawang security dahil bawal na po kasi magsundo ng pasahero doon sa loob. So, dun na po siya sa labas naghintay, sa may baggage area. And nung lumabas na po ako, binati ng mommy ko yung ibang artista na bumati sa kanya, and we left na po right away."
I will have to go with Heart with this issue. Marian Rivera is really insecure and can be a real monster when it comes to Dingdong Dantes. She is that paranoid that karma will strike back and some girl will steal Dingdong away from. Just like what she did with Karylle!
