- A young actress faced complaints from her former personal assistant due to her alleged maltreatment
- The former PA revealed on the Wanted sa Radyo radio program that she was treated as a housemaid by the actress and her family
- The actress and her former assistant later settled the issue through an agreement
Annalaine Revilla, a former personal assistant (PA) of an unnamed Star Magic female artist, aired her complaints against the latter for being an abusive employer.
Annalaine was interviewed by Raffy Tulfo on the Wanted sa Radyo radio program last December 2, Monday. According to her, the actress whom she nicknamed as “3Manika”, eventually treated her as a housemaid after working for her as a stay-in PA for one month.
Annalaine narrated, “Ang pinasok ko po talaga sa kanya is pagiging PA po. Pamilyar naman ako sa ginagawa ng pagiging PA kasi may mga kaibigan naman po rin akong PA.
“Ang naging usapan po namin nung artista po is magii-stay-in ako sa kanya. Ang naging kondisyon lang naman po niya is since nakatira ako sa kanila kikilos kahit papaano.
“Ang nangyari naman po kasi habang tumatagal yung panahon, palala ng palala. Kasi parang nararamdaman ko ‘PA ba yung pinasok ko dito?'”she said.
She revealed that she was also treated the same way by the actress’ mother and brother during her stay in their house.
“Simula nung dumating ako dun, halos hindi na sila kumikilos.
“Parang ang dating, parang naging kasambahay nila ako,” Annalaine said.
Annalaine said that she was receiving a salary of P7,000 per month even though she sometimes worked for 24 hours during the actress’s tapings. Aside from this, she shared that the actress accused her of robbery and spread false rumors about her to her companions.
To confirm this, Raffy then called the young actress to let her air her side about the issue.
Speaking through the phone, the actress told Annalaine: “Pero ang akin lang kasi Ayeng napikon lang ako nung sinabi ko naman sayo na dinamay mo yung nanay ko. Walang mawawala sa iyo sa akin maraming mawawala. Kasi nangyari na lahat na-ere na lahat wala na akong magagawa dun.”
The young actress also denied that she accused Annalaine of stealing her belongings on social media. To settle things, Annalaine then asked for her to pay the deficit of her salary and make a public apology as a condition.
The actress agreed to this but she stressed that she could not make a public apology for she thought it will not look like she was sincere. The actress later agreed that she should personally apologize to Annalaine without Raffy and the show’s staff hearing their conversation.
Afterward, Annalaine then said that she has yet to personally discuss the issue with the actress to finally settle the issue.
She stated, “About dun sa mga ginawa niya, hindi pa naman kami nag-uusap pa.
“Yung talagang settled down talaga na nakakapag-sorry-han na.
“Pero ipina-realize ko sa kanya na sana ako na ang last na tao na gagawan nila ng ganun.”
