Andi Eigenmann takes the high road in response to bashers
Andi Eigenmann had the perfect response after some bashers thought they had the power to bring her down. Eigenmann recently took to social media to tease her fans with a new project she worked on with “alike,” a digital media company founded by TV host Tim Yap.
“So ecstatic to share with you all, something I’ve collaborated with the team of @alikeofficial over the summer,” Eigenmann wrote on Instagram on Tuesday, Sept. 18. “Stay tuned (online) on September 22nd!”
In her post, Eigenmann shared a picture of her sitting on the floor in a one-piece swimsuit, looking carefree and happy with her disheveled hair and bare face.
One netizen, however, commented on Eigenmann’s post, saying that her beauty was being wasted.
“Sayang yong ganda niya,” wrote the netizen (@iamsonaima).
Eigenmann, however, took the high road when she replied to the netizen.
“Because? It saddens me how there are people as shallow as you who think that [it’s] a waste to focus on more important things than the way we look— ie. living a fulfilling life of joy and positivity. May u find that somewhere in your personal journey through life.”
Another netizen, a certain Malou (@malou1125), told Eigenmann she already looked like a shellfish diver.
“Mukha ka nang maninisid ng tahong,” wrote the netizen.
“Masaya ako maging kamukha nila kesa naman maging kamukha ko ikaw,” Eigenmann wrote back.
Unwarranted the comments may have been, Eigenmann handled herself with grace as she didn’t resort to adding more fuel to the hate and toxicity.
Since moving to Baler, Aurora, with her daughter, Ellie, Eigenmann has embraced a simpler and more quiet life, leaving behind the glamour of show business she once knew for the beach. Eigenmann revealed back in June that she sold everything she “felt was an idea of luxury.”
Today, she no longer owns cars or any designer clothing and bags, even makeup. She, too, has no helper or driver at her beck and call. For Eigenmann, these were things that she found “toxic” in her life.
It’s palpable that Eigenmann, no matter what the bashers say, is living her best life. And nobody can take that away from her. /ra
