Anne Curtis’s loyal assistant of 19 years, Mary Ann Ontay emotionally thanked the It’s Showtime host and actress for helping her and her family.
“Thank you. Madami kang naitulong sa family ko. Dahil sa’yo, naipatayo ko ‘yung bahay. Tagal nang pangarap namin na mapaayos ‘yung lumang bahay namin pero ‘nung nagbigay ka ng cash, idiniretso ko na ‘yun sa pagpapatayo ng bahay,” she said, trying to hold back tears, during their guest appearance on the morning show, Magandang Buhayhttp://tempuri.org/tempuri.html, October 17.
“Tapos ‘yung ibang naipon ko, napag-aral ko ‘yung bunsong kapatid ko. Thank you,” Mary Ann added.
Anne, for her part, told the talk show hosts, “Hindi biro ‘yung 19 years. ‘Yun nga ‘yung sinasabi ko eh, na parang ang hirap din talagang makahanap ng mata-trust mo.”
While Anne is 31 years old, Mary Ann is 35. When asked how Mary Ann became Anne’s assistant, she shared that Anne’s mother and aunt were also from Bolinao, Pangasinan where she came from. She said they used to be neighbors.
