Quoting Jerome Gomez‘s article entitled “Grace Under Pressure – Maricar Reyes Surpasses a Scandal with Bold Nonchalance and Confidence”:
She would look good in glamorous dresses, soft curls and South Sea pearls.She looks expensive and yet approachable, and judging from how she dealt with the whole Hayden hullabaloo, she has a good head on shoulders. She appears in next month’s cover of Metro Magazine and looks like she is on her element wearing designer things. It’s a little weird how she found herself in showbiz. While The Buzz Magazine’s banner story is about Bea Alonzo finally shedding clothes and appearing shedding clothes and appearing in a two-pieces swimsuit after years of playing the meek, conservative, hopeless romantic in television and movies. Maricar is being covered in yard and yards of satin after appearing allegedly naked in short little minutes of stolen video.
Maricar doesn’t deliver much juice in her interview, though. Preferring to talk only about acting, and how she will manage to lead two lives: a celebrity and a doctor (she is currently planning to set up her new clinic). Already she talks like a star of this generation, avoiding the specifics and speaking only of ideas and life in general. About determination and being a survivor. She says nothing about Hayden and the rest of the unfortunate circumstances that made her a name. She doesn’t need to, and maybe she shouldn’t. The better to keep the mystery and the audience asking for more.
