Pauleen Sotto clarifies rumors about Maine Mendoza: ‘I do not dislike Maine’
It seems Pauleen Luna Sotto has had enough of the rumors that bashers have been saying about her; she finally took to Twitter last night to address them with a series of angry tweets.
“Once and for all let me put this out in the open,” Sotto started. “I DO NOT DISLIKE MAINE! I don’t know where some people got that idea. How I wish she would stay in the studio so we could all be close!”
Sotto explained that she and Mendoza just don’t get to bond anymore unlike before, since Mendoza makes the rounds of the baranggays for “Eat Bulaga”, while the rest of the hosts are in the studio in Broadway Centrum in Quezon City.
“Hindi naman kailangan mangaway! (There’s no need for a fight!) Maine said that herself! What I seriously do not understand is the fact that some of you ‘think’ that,” added Sotto. “Bakit kailangan niyo mag imbento? (Why do you need to make up things?) Again, we are a family in Eat Bulaga!”
She also called on the bashers to stop forcing all of them to fight because it will never happen.
“I’ve been on the show for 13 years so please take it from me na pamilya kami doon (we are a family there).”
“And lastly, leave my 3 month old daughter out of this!!” Sotto called on. “I NEVER got mad at anyone who said Talitha looks like Ryzza! Stop inventing. Naiinis ako sa mga tao na nagsasabi na magkamukha sila na may malice! (I am annoyed at people saying they look alike, with malice.) Meaning, pag may sad face, meaning, nilalait nila si Ryzza (they are making fun of Ryzza).”
Baby Talitha Maria is her three-month old daughter with husband Vic “Bossing” Sotto.
Sotto added that she’s mad because she believes children should be spared from people’s hatred and scrutiny. She also vowed that if people continue to put words in her mouth and say bad things about Ryzza and Talitha, she will definitely report them to the National Bureau of Investigation.
In the end, Sotto begged people to stop the hate. “We love Maine as much as we love everyone else in the show. Please stop thinking otherwise. Peace [be] with you all and God bless you!” JB
