- Rere Madrid accused of backstabbing StarStruck 7 girls
- Jennylyn Mercado gave Rere a chance to defend herself on the accusations of her fellow finalists
StarStruck Season 7 hopeful Rere Madrid currently has personal issues involving her fellow StarStruck girls finalists.
For the first time, the finalists were given a chance to open up about the hopeful they want to get booted out of the competition last Sunday, July 14.
Rere, who is the younger sister of GMA Network actor Ruru Madrid, got the highest number of votes.
Four out of 14 hopefuls voted for her as the one they wanted to be out of the competition. Those who voted were Lexi Gonzales, Shayne Sava, Dani Porter, and Pamela Prinster.
Lexi reasoned, “Ayoko po kasi yung mga times minsan, namba-backstab po siya ng kasama namin.”
Shayne said about Rere, “Minsan po parang feeling ko, napa-plastikan po ako. Di ko po napi-feel na nagpapakatotoo po siya.”
Dani explained her vote by saying, “May career na po siya sa showbiz kasi artista na po yung kapatid niya.”
Pamela said, “Nasaktan po ako sa sinabi niya na hindi kami friends, may gap.”
StarStruck Season 1 Ultimate Survivor Jennylyn Mercado, the show host, gave Rere a chance to defend herself from the other hopefuls.
Rere said, “For me po, siguro, hindi ko naman po kayang i-please kahit sino man sa kanila, pero kung ayun po yung nakikita nila sa akin, okay lang po yun basta ako lumalaban po kasi competition ito. Ito po yung pangarap ko, hindi po pwedeng matutulan ito ng pagsabi na kapatid lang ako ni Ruru Madrid. Kasi sana bigyan niyo po ako ng chance na matupad ko po yung pangarap ko na maging isang artista. Alam ko po na yung mapapanalunan dito ay napakalaking bagay pero yung matawag ka po na Ultimate Female Survivor, isang napakalaking… sobrang sarap po sa feeling.”
Week 3 (Sampal Serye and Direct Action) of the StarStruck season 7 Artista Test was tough. The finalists were grouped into twos and threes in their onscreen take set by director Gil Tejada with veteran actress Aiko Melendez (also known as Emilia Ardiente-Torillo of ABS-CBN series Wildflower) and assigned different scripts and scenarios.
Despite the tension, the final results showed that Rere earned 86.9% votes. Hopeful Rere was saved by Public vote and the Council.
