Ex-PBB housemate Carol Batay: 'Walang kinalaman 'yung observation ko kay Cathy sa issue namin ni Her


Carol Batay was evicted from Pinoy Big Brother Double Up before she could settle things with housemate Cathy Remperas. In the previous week, Carol expressed her negative observations and uneasy feelings toward Cathy. ABS-CBN.com then interviewed Carol to clarify the issue. “Observation lang naman ang akin, bahala na ang taong mag-isip kung para sa kanila e paninira ‘yun. Sabi ko nga kay Rica (Paras) ayokong sabihin talaga sa kanya pero naisip ko kapag hindi ko naman sinabi baka mag-burst naman ako. Na-notice ko na dati kasi very close kami. Pero nung nag-merge na, mas naging close siya sa mga girls from House B. Sila na ang lagi niyang kasama. Naisip ko baka gusto niya talagang kasama sina Sam (Pinto) at Mariel (Soriño) kasi they’re all very pretty samantalang kami nina Melisa (Cantiveros) parang mga bata. Pero kung choice niya ‘yun okay lang naman. Sad lang dahil hindi na niya kami nasasamahan.”

The Fil-Chinese pharmacist was also vocal about how she sensed that there is something underneath Cathy sweetness towards their other housemates. “Mararamdaman mo kasi kung sincere ‘yung sweetness ng isang tao. ‘Yung kina Paul Jake (Castillo), Rica, Melisa, ramdam ko na sincere ‘yun. Pero kay Cathy kasi may something akong nararamdaman. There was a time na nag-prepare siya ng oatmeal and lahat ng tao inalok niya e akong malapit sa kanya hindi niya tinanong. Also kapag hindi namin siya kasama sinasabi niya na parang ang ingay daw namin. Pero minsan naman kasama namin siyang nag-iingay. Ano ba talaga ang gusto niya?

It can’t be helped though that people may think that the reason Carol had these negative observations was because she was jealous of Cathy who had become the focus of her crush Hermes Bautista. “Walang kinalaman ‘yung observation ko kay Cathy sa issue namin ni Hermes. Kaya nga hesitant akong magsabi kay Rica kasi baka isipin lang niya na kaya ako nagsasabi ng ganun is sinisiraan ko si Cathy dahil nagseselos ako. But I know naman na malawak ang understanding ni Rica. Para sa akin tapos na ‘yung issue kay Hermes nung mag-start ‘yung observation ko kay Cathy.”

Carol said that she found Hermes’s sweetness attractive. But the moment Hermes confessed that he liked Cathy, Carol started to feel uncomfortable. “Naamin ko na sa kanya na like ko siya. Pero suddenly sinabi niya sa akin na crush niya si Cathy. Paulit-ulit pa niyang ipinaparinig sa akin. Ako naman, ‘Wait! Be sensitive naman!’ Alam mong may crush ako sa iyo bakit directly kailangan mong iparinig sa akin ‘yan. Parang hindi naman niya ako friend nang ganun. Kaya nga ako nag-start umiwas sa kanya kasi ayoko nang makarinig ng ganun.”

The 22-year old explained why she chose to distance herself from Hermes and Cathy and resolve the matter on her own. “Wala rin namang mangyayari kung paguusapan namin. I thought kaya ko naman siyang i-resolve on my own because the problem is with me. Just let me cry it out. Kapag nagkwento ako baka isipin pa nila na I’m blaming them which is not. Tanggap ko na talagang friend lang ako sa kanya… Nung nag-merge ‘yung house and madalas magkasama sina Hermes at Cathy okay naman ako. Kaya ko kahit nasa harap ko silang nag-uusap. Nag-focus na lang ako sa ibang tasks at housemates.”

Although Hermes seems to genuinely like Cathy, Carol said that
