Fanny Serrano says people are unfairly judging Maricel Soriano


072111-fanny_main.jpgFanny Serrano admitted that he was saddened and surprised by the news that good friend Maricel Soriano allegedly used drugs and physically abused her former helpers. The makeup artist said that he initially thought that the news was just a publicity stint for the Diamond Star’s showbiz comeback. “Pero nung lumala nang lumala ‘yung storya, lumalabas na ‘yung mga katulong, padagdag na nang pagdagdag ‘yung lungkot ko na ano nang nangyari? Wala pang nakakasagot maski sa atin, sa inyong lahat, wala pang sagot kung ano talaga ang nangyari,” he explained at the press conference of his latest endorsement, Novuhair Topical Scalp and Hair Lotion yesterday, July 20.

Fanny also disclosed that he has not communicated with Maricel for over a year now. “Before, nagte-text siya sa akin ng spiritual messages, natigil. Matagal na.” He added that he is not the type to pry into a friend’s personal problems. “Ang hinihintay ko ‘yung kusa kang magte-text sa akin. Kung kailangan mo ako, andyan ako.

Asked about his opinion if Maricel should break her silence on the issue, Fanny replied, “Personally, maganda makipag-usap ‘pag ready ka. ‘Pag ‘di ka pa ready, huwag kang magsasalita. I-ready mo muna sarili mo. ‘Pag sinabi mong ready, kampante ka na, relaxed ka na, natauhan ka na andyan na ang truth. ‘Pag hindi [ka ready] tama na muna ‘yan, magpahinga na muna.” And like what reports say, Fanny revealed that he has heard from others that Maricel supposedly left the country.

But while Maricel has yet to air her side about the issue, Fanny pointed out that it is unfair that the actress has been judged already. “Hindi natin alam [kung guilty]. Hindi [pa] natin nakakausap. We can say na na-judge na siya, na wala pa siya [nasasabi]. Unfair ‘yon.

Fanny said that he remains hopeful that the accusations about his friend are not true. “Pray ako nang pray na, ‘Ano ba ‘to? Ano’ng nangyari?’Yun ang question, kasi wala [siya] eh. Parang ang question, anong nangyari, sana hindi totoo ang nangyari.”

Fanny and Maricel have known each other for a very long time and the former has also been the actress’s makeup artist for many years. “Bata pa siya alaga ko na siya. Lahat ng Regal movies niya, ako humawak noon [bilang makeup artist niya].”
