Mariel Rodriguez says she will remain under Boy Abunda's former PR company


091911-mariel-main.jpgMariel Rodriguez admitted that she was shocked when Boy Abunda decided to give up ownership of his PR company, Backroom Inc. She has been managed by the King of Talk ever since she started in showbiz and is practically helpless without him as a manager. "Alam mo nagpunta ako sa bahay niya. Naiiyak pa ako. 'Tito Boy, what's going to happen to me?' Kasi alam mo si Tito Boy, kapag meron akong mga katanungan, kapag may gumugulo sa isip ko, kapag nakausap ko na si tito Boy ok na yun."
 
But looking back at her own life decisions, Mariel realized that she has no right to stop Boy from resetting his priorities. "Sinabi ko sa kanya it's going to be very hard. But I cannot be selfish to Tito Boy. We reach a point in our lives na iwe-weigh mo kung ano bang mas mahalaga, family or career? Hindi niya kailangan ng stress, pera or fame. Ang kailangan niya panahon kasama ang kanyang nanay. I understand kasi nung ako nagpakasal, nung ako nag-decide na unahin ang married life, naintindihan ako ni tito Boy. So sino ba naman ako para hindi intindihin ang pangangailangan niya?'
 
Mariel further shared how the The Buzz host had been a great influence to her all these years. "Kasi si Tito Boy, sa totoo lang wala siyang commission. Hanggang ngayon si tito Boy nandiyan pa rin. Nakasanayan na ng system ko lahat... Naging very dependent sa kanya. Dati kapag nagri-ring yung phone ko tapos siya ang nag-register, natatakot ako. Pero ngayon parang mas masaya at kalmado ang feeling ko kapag kausap ko siya."
 
But at the same time, Mariel acknowledged the competent staff behind Boy's PR company. "But let's give credit to Backroom because Backroom is a solid company with a hardworking staff. I will always be with Backroom. Mahal na mahal ko ang pamilya ko sa Backroom. Magaling sila sa schedule, management, bookings. Tsaka hindi ako binigyan ni tito Boy ng choice. Sabi niya sa akin, 'Mariel I want you to stay in Backroom.' Kasi love naman niya talaga ako," she added.
