Isabelle Daza: ‘We’re just ourselves and we’re so blessed that people are interested in that.’
The much-anticipated reality show of celebrity squad members Solenn Heussaff, Isabelle Daza, Georgina Wilson, and Liz Uy titled !T Girls will finally premiere on cable channel E! on October 24 at 8 pm.
The show’s first episode will establish how the girls became friends. It will also show how Georgina opened up about her pregnancy, and the struggles that Isabelle underwent early this year such as her father’s passing and then-fiancé, Adrien Semblat’s health issue.
Considering that this group of friends have earned an online following who look up to them for being #SquadGoals and #RelationshipGoals, among others, show director Raymond Gutierrez said that, “There’s so many more layers to them than what they share online.
“What’s nice about the show is that you’ll see them in their downtime. You’ll see them not fully made up and you’ll see them just interacting with each other that you don’t get to see online,” he said during the docu-series’ press conference at the Maxims Hotel at Resorts World Manila.
As for how the !T Girls concept came to be, executive producer and NBC Universal International’s VP Channels Asia Scott Mackenzie narrated, “We met Liz (Uy) through her guest appearance on our show on Pas, How Do I Look? And we knew that there were these other fabulous female celebrities and they were all actually friends in real life. And so there was a concept. And then we needed the right person to be the director. And who do we trust in E! in the Philippines more than Raymond Gutierrez?” Raymond was also a part of the E! reality show, It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez.
“We had these four in mind and thankfully, they all said yes,” Scott added, saying that the ladies have chemistry and thinks the program will also be popular not just locally but regionally.
When asked if being labeled an ‘It Girl’ puts pressure on them, Isabelle answered, “We don’t put pressure on ourselves to be somebody we’re not… We’re just ourselves and we’re so blessed that people are interested in that.”
Echoing Isabelle’s answer, Liz added, “It’s also good na we’re all genuine, we love what we do, we don’t pretend to be someone we’re not.”
