As the newest kapuso to transfer to ABS-CBN, Karylle occupied the hot seat on the Buzz for the “Tough Ten” segment wherein she will answer 10 tough questions that the host will throw at her. Karylle answered 9 questions, 8 of which were all about Dingdong, Marian or both.
The no. 1 tough question goes: “Buntis ba si Marian Rivera?” Karylle did not answer anything but a figurative “smile.” Boy Abunda read between the lines and responded, “Salamat sa Pagtitiwala.”
This afternoon, the grand press conference of the MMFF movie “Desperadas 2” was held at the Imperial Palace Suites. Almost all of the cast attended the event including Ruffa Gutierrez, Rufa Mae Quinto, Iza Calzado, and Ogie Alcasid and their leading men Jay-R, Christian Vasquez, TJ Trinidad, Will Devaughn, and Carlo Guevara. Marian Rivera, whose foot is still on cast, was also present.
Because of The Buzz incident, the press went to Marian Rivera and asked the burning question if she’s indeed pregnant. At first, Marian jokingly answered “Pwede bang smile na lang din ang isagot ko?” Afterwards, the Primetime Queen answered the question straight on, “Hindi Po Ako Buntis.”
“Na-hurt ako sa kanya dahil kung ako ang tatanungin ng ganoong katanungan, ang isasagot ko, ‘Wala po akong alam diyan’ o ‘Wala po ako sa posisyon na sumagot diyan.’ Nagkaroon ng malisya ang pag smile-smile niya. Inaamin ko, na-hurt ako,” she added while she broke into tears.
“Na-offend talaga ako. Hindi naman ako tanga at lalong hindi na ako bata para magkamali ng ganoon na magpabuntis. Marami pa akong gustong mangyari sa career ko at kung mangyayari man yun, ako na ang magsasabi sa inyo. Isa pa, kung mag-boyfriend kami ni Dingdong, ako ang unang aamin dahil lahat naman ng naging boyfriend ko, naging proud ako.”
Then Marian hits back at Karylle without mentioning her name.
“Makakasagot naman siya [Karylle] dahil may alam naman siya. Sana hindi niya na lang idinaan sa pa-smile-smile.”
The question and answer was immediately discontinued. The reporters mobbed the Primetime Queen afterwards.
