During a recent interview, Andrea Brillantes has admitted she feels envious of those newbies in showbiz who are already claiming their huge instant fame, and it hurts her seeing a new artist become instantly famous.
When asked what her most disliked experience in the workplace is, Brillantes truthfully spilled her thoughts.
“Antagal ko na kasi di ba, sobrang sakit sa ‘kin na ‘pag may mga bagong dumadating sikat na sila agad. Na ako yung mga hindi na kailangan na… ansakit… parang plato na binasag, ako. Yun ako, ako yung plato, sa tuwing nakikita ko ang lahat ng taon na pinagtatrabahuhan ko,” Brillantes related herself to a plate that is being broken every time a new face in the entertainment industry emerges.
Brillantes feels that she is being outshined when a new name pops out and immediately wins the hearts of thousands of supporters.
“Lahat ng taon na dasal nang dasal ako para makuha iyon. Tapos etong bagong to, makukuha niya lahat. Makikita ko siya diyaan. Tapos ako bakit, ginawa ko naman lahat, nagdarasal ako araw-araw. Ilang taon na. Tapos mapupunta lang sa iba,” Brillantes shared how she worked hard to be where she is now.
She thinks it is unfair for someone to easily snatch years of hard work and perseverance with an instant spotlight compared to her, who attempted and went through a lot just to reach her current success.
“Anong kulang sakin, ano pa bang dapat kong gawin? Ang sakit-sakit. Sakit-sakit,” she questioned herself.
