What Andi learned from Billy-Nikki issue
MANILA -- For actress Andi Eigenmann, there are lessons to be learned after she was linked to actor Billy Crawford and tagged as the reason behind the breakup of Crawford and long-time girlfriend Nikki Gil.
"For me na-realize ko I know who I am and nagsasabi naman ako ng totoo," Eigenmann told reporters on Tuesday after the press conference for her upcoming series "Galema," which will start airing on September 30 on ABS-CBN's Kapamilya Gold afternoon block.
"Hindi naman totoo ang nangyari. I'm really doing everything I can pero. Kung hindi pa enough, wala na akong magagawa, it's out of my hands already. But now, I'm OK," she explained.
Eigenmann said she's already doing fine after her emotional denial when the controversy first erupted.
"Okay na po ako. For me, alam ko naman na the truth will always prevail. Normal lang sa amin na mapasama sa isyu or mapag-usapan or mamali or ma-misinterpret 'yung ginagawa namin. Okay lang sa akin 'yon and everything is fine. Now I know to not let it get to me," she said on Tuesday.
The actress admitted that the allegations really hurt her, especially with the harsh accusations that she's "babaeng ahas" or a boyfriend-stealer, a reference to her "Galema" role, best known for the two-headed snake on her shoulders.
"Hindi man lang ako maka-post ng IG (Instagram) o Twitter kasi kahit anong sabihin ko ay minamali nila, lalo na sa trabaho kasi nga ahas. Pero sa akin na-hurt ako pero it didn't affect me so much kasi hindi naman totoo," she said
It's also a good thing that Eigenmann's working relationship with Crawford, her leading man in the upcoming movie "Momzillas," was not affected by the rumors.
"Kasi po nagkakilala kami ni Billy doon lang sa shooting. Hindi naman kami 'yung magkaibigan," she explained. "So noong lumabas 'yung isyu na 'yon, basically wala namang nagbago. 'Yung mga tao tumingin lang sa kung paano kami magkasama pero hindi ibig sabihin ay may nagbago, kasi hindi naman kami 'yung parang best friends."
"Pero totoong nagkakilala kami, nagkakwentuhan kami kapag nag-set. Wala naman pong nagbago, ganoon pa din yon," she added.
