EXCLUSIVE: Ariella Arida reveals ‘fears’ over criticized Binibining Pilipinas hosting
041015-ariella_main.jpgSpeaking for the first time since she was criticized for her hosting style during the Binibining Pilipinas coronation night last month, 2013 Miss Universe third runner-up Ariella Arida said she has come to terms with the backlash.

In an exclusive interview with Push.com.ph as one of the newest Lucky Stars in Kapamilya Deal or No Deal, she explained that she took the bashing “lightly.”
Ayun nga eh, siguro dahil alam ko rin sa sarili ko na ganon ako talaga. Eh hindi naman ako in denial eh. Kasi ganito talaga ako magsalita eh anong magagawa ko? So world peace na lang tayong lahat lahat,” she said.

Ariella, just hours after she trended on various social media sites, swiftly apologized through her Twitter account.

Okay lang tinake ko siya as very light talaga. In return natawa rin ako sa response ng mga tao. Sabi nila, ‘Okay lang ‘yun madame love ka pa rin namin. Ikaw pa rin talaga.’ As in nakakatuwa lahat ng mga responses nila. Ako naman hindi ko naman ine-expect na Ganon ang magiging response nila,” she claimed.

According to Ariella, she never really intended to poke fun at her own experience when she posted the tweet, saying that “Parang ako lang talaga, eto ‘yung nafe-feel ko that time eh so ayun talaga ‘yung sinulat ko kaya hindi ako nagdalawang isip kung ano sasabihin ng mga tao ganon. Super-overwhelming naman ‘yung naging response so parang mas natawa tuloy lalo ako. Ay okay, sige thank you thank you.”

Was she traumatized by the incident?

Sa akin naman ang iniisip ko, ‘Ay, may mag-book pa kaya sa akin?’ Parang ganon, ‘yun ang iniisip ko sa sarili ko,” she said with a laugh.


041015-ariella_main.jpgIf anything, Ariella is well aware that speaking is one of her “weaknesses” and that “Parang tanggap ko ‘yun and ready naman ako na i-improve siya. Siguro kung may nakagusto na pag-hostin ako ulit, go lang. Why not?”

Despite being a public personality for over two years now since bagging the Binibining Pilipinas Universe crown, Ariella realized through the incident that she somehow doesn’t fit the mold as to the kind of beauty queen that the public expects.

Naisip ko rin naman kasi siguro ‘yung mga taong parang sa screen lang nila ako nakikita pero hindi nila alam ‘yung totoong ako is ganito talaga ako na parang bakla lang ganyan. And siyempre siguro beauty queen ka, ine-expect nila na sobrang prim and proper and poised especially kapag nagsalita. Tapos sabi ko hindi ko nga alam kung paano ko na-control ‘yung sarili ko nung time na ‘yun,” she explained.

In parting, Ariella remained cool over the issue and told her critics and fans alike: “Ganon pa rin, mahal ko po kayong lahat and sorry kung na-disappoint kayo kung paano ako nag-host. Basta sana maging masaya tayong lahat. World peace.”
