The so-called war between Karylle and Marian Rivera all started when the singer-actress gave a mysterious smile when Boy Abunda asked her if actress Marian Rivera was pregnant with her ex-boyfriend’s baby during The Buzz’s Tough Ten portion last December 14. With the still rampant rumors that Marian allegedly stole Dingdong Dantes from Karylle, it was all but easy for the public to assume that the actress was indeed pregnant.
However at the December 15 press conference of the movie Desperadas 2, Marian let all hell break loose when she went emotional and said that she was definitely offended by Karylle’s smile. “Dadaanin ko rin sa smile para controversial ako?” Marian told the press with tears rolling down her cheeks. Some of the press present during the event though deemed her actions a little bit fake and OA. Some event went to the extent of saying the act was orchestrated for her to get pity from the viewing public.
Karylle on the other hand explained her side earlier that morning during her live guesting on talk show Boy & Kris. “I don’t wanna answer that question, that was what I really meant,” was the actress’ clarification of the smile that would definitely go down in showbiz history. She further added later during her story conference for the teleserye Maruja that she wasn’t mad at Marian’s statements at the Desperadas’ press con. “I explained my side. Hindi ako galit kaya wala naman akong kailangan patawarin.”
On December 16 during the Kapamilya Christmas Special taping at the Araneta Coliseum, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Karylle’s mom, was cornered by the media to ask her comments on the situation. The Divine Diva, who was performing with her daughter on the show, just smiled and said ‘Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!’ perhaps not wanting the issue to grow bigger. Karylle’s step father, Dolphy was also on the same page and said being in showbiz, one has to be prepared for all the intrigues.
Dingdong though remained quite all through out the brouhaha that is until he attended an event last December 18 and the media got the chance to ask his reaction to the issue. The actor was quite vocal in saying that he doesn’t want to get entangled in the middle of things but believes that the truth will eventually come out in the open. But what sparked rumors anew was his appearance at the Shake, Rattle and Roll X premiere last December 20, where he escorted Marian, who was one of the movie’s lead stars.
And just yesterday on ASAP ’08, everyone was wondering if Karylle’s song numbers were all an ode to her ex-boyfriend. She sang hits like I Love You, Good-bye, I’ll Never Get Over You (Getting Over Me) and Don’t Let Me Be Last To Know. Perhaps, is this the singer-actress’ farewell to Dingdong and a closure to the issue?
As of press time, the situation has yet to be resolved and a cease-fire, declared. The Buzz hosts Boy Abunda, Kris Aquino and Ruffa Gutierrez hope that the issue gets fixed soon and that eventually Marian clears her name especially her rumored ‘diva’ attitude which has given her notoriety in the entertainment industry.
