Ivana Alawi was humiliated in front of her co-actors by a well-known TV host. This was one of the revelations she shared in her latest vlog.
Alawi took the ‘Sagot O Lagot’ challenge along with her brother Hash. In this challenge, the two have to answer questions or otherwise drink an exotic drink as a consequence.
When Alawi was asked, “Did she ever had a quarrel with other celebrities?”
The young actress answered, “Wala akong nakaaway. May nang-away sa akin.”
“Pero ako, never akong nakipag-away sa kahit sinong artista, kasi kailangan mong rumespeto at kailangan mong makisama sa showbiz world,” she added.
Then the sexy actress-influencer remembered and recounted how, for reasons she was not aware of then, an acclaimed Kapamilya TV host got mad at her.
She vividly shared that the scene took place during her TV guesting to promote their crime drama series ‘Sino Ang May Sala? Mea Culpa’ released in April, 2019.
Jodi Sta. Maria, Bella Padilla, Toni Labrusca and Kit Thompson were her co-lead stars in the Kapamilya teleserye.
According to her, “Dun yun sa may ABS, nagta-taping, tapos nakaupo lang ako sa dressing room. Marami kami dun, kasi parang sama-sama kami sa dressing room na ‘yun, so, ‘yung kasama kong PA lumabas siya kasi hindi na siya kasya dun sa dressing room namin and kailangan lagi siyang malapit sa akin, kasi, siyempre, kapag may kailangan ako, kapag magbibihis, ‘yung mga ganun.”
“Lumabas siya tapos may nakita siyang upuan dun sa labas. Nagpaalam naman siya dun sa tao sa loob, sabi niya, ‘Pwede bang makiupo lang?’ Para malapit siya sa akin. As in tapat lang kasi siya. So sabi ng tao: ‘Oo naman. Sige, upo ka.’ So umupo lang siya dun, nag-aantay siya, kunwari tatawagin na kami o ano,” Alawi continued.
“Hindi pa kami nagsisimula nito eh, so nag-aantay lang ako dun, nakaupo ako dun.”
Alawi did not expect the following scenes that happened.
“Biglang may sumugod na batikang host.”
The actress-vlogger immediately recognized the host. She said that the latter was her ‘idol’ whom she always used to watch when she was young.
“Kaya nu’ng nakita ko, parang napangiti ako,” she said.
She was just surprised when she was suddenly shouted at because her PA was allegedly in the dressing room of the host.
“Parang pinagsisigawan niya ako du’n sa dressing room, sa harap ng ibang artista. Parang sabi ko ‘Hala’,” she stated.
She even gestured at what the TV host did to her and pointed in the camera.
“Sabi niya, ‘You why are you… your person is in my room!? Bawal kayong pumasok sa dressing room ko! Bastos!’ Ganun, ganun, ang dami niyang sinabi.”
The young actress added that she was very embarrassed so she just cried while asking for pardon from the host and immediately called her mom afterwards.
“Ta’s parang naalala ko ‘yung reaksyon ko na ‘Sorry po, sorry po, sorry po.’ As in sorry ako ng sorry, tapos sobrang na-ano (napahiya) ako, kasi para sa akin may ibang mga artista, sobrang pinapahiya ako, as in,” she explained.
“Ang sabi niya (Mom): ‘Okay lang yan. Hayaan mo na. Ano na lang.’ Kasi wala naman talaga akong ginawang mali kaya hindi ko maintindihan kung bakit ako ‘yung pinuntahan du’n at pinagsisigawan sa harap ng ibang artista. Pero siyempre, you still have to show respect and you still have to be professional,” she stated.
“Pero sana kinausap niya na lang ako na ‘Uy, Ivana, alam kong bago ka sa ganito pero bawal ‘yung ganyan’ – mas ma-appreciate ko ‘yun, diba?”
“Di naman ako mahirap kausap. Pwede mo naman akong tawagin ta’s sigawan mo ako ‘yung tayong dalawa lang; pero ‘yung sa harap ng maraming tao na wala naman akong ginawang masama – ‘yun lang ‘yung di ko malimutan talaga,” said by the famous YouTuber.
Her sibling then prodded her to specify the name while a certain Aryan intervened to simply hint the initial letter of the host’s name.
The social media influencer did not mention any name in her vlog but she said that the name of the host starts with letter ‘M’.
However, she clarified, “Wala na akong hard feelings, naka move on na ako.”
