Emotional Cacai defends Maja from bashers
MANILA, Philippines – Singer and comedian Cacai Bautista turned emotional on Tuesday, in defense of her friend, actress Maja Salvador.
During a press conference held Tuesday for Salvador’s ongoing 10th anniversary concert series, “Maja Unveils @ 10,” Bautista wiped tears from her face as she addressed Salvador’s haters.
Bautista is one of the celebrities performing with Salvador during her concert series celebrating her 10 years in show business.
“Ako ang unang-unang ring nasasaktan kapag may nang-away sa kanya,” she said. “Hindi ko nakita sa kanya na nagreklamo siya, na nainis siya. Siya pa nga ang nagsasabi na ‘May inaaway ka na naman, Ate Cacai?’”
Salvador has reaped criticism, particularly from the fans of former best friend Kim Chiu, with whom her current boyfriend, Gerald Anderson, once had a relationship.
Salvador and Anderson have also recently been the subject of controversy. Rumors have spread about Anderson’s “affair” with his “On The Job” co-star Dawn Jimenez. Salvador dismissed Anderson’s alleged cheating, and said that as actors, they are always being linked to other personalities.
In the same press conference, Salvador said she wants to give her fans the chance to see her doing lots of new things she did not dare before. Her concert series only shows fans a peek at what she can do, she said.
“Ano ba ang pwede kong bagong i-offer? Ano ba ang pwedeng bago nilang makita sa akin? So sabi ko, parang gusto ko maging 'total performer,'” Salvador told reporters.
“Gusto ko ang nagsi-sing and dance, tapos parang soon, sana, gusto ko mag-concert.” -- From a report by MJ Felipe, ABS-CBN News
