Ria Atayde can’t help but shed tears as she defended her brother Arjo Atayde from his bashers during her guesting on Tonight With Boy Abunda last Monday, January 21.
Arjo became the talk of the town ever since he was linked to Eat Bulaga’s phenomenal star Maine Mendoza saying he only gained popularity and more showbiz career opportunities because of her.
Arjo’s recent admission that he and Maine are “exclusively dating,” only earned him more bashers.
Ria was disheartened with all the negative things thrown at her brother, “A lot of people sinasabi that his successes now have to do with her (Maine).”
“And I think that is so unfair”
“He’s worked so hard to get where he is and to discredit his work? Wow ha! Not fair at all.”
She also tells everyone who doesn’t agree with Arjo and Maine’s friendship, “Of course at the end of the day I keep saying, it’s their lives”
“I mean, I get that we’re public figures, but let us own our lives naman, di ba especially with him”
