Yassi Pressman shares she bonded with JaDine after she got out of the Big Brother house.
Yassi Pressman said that she learned a lot about the value of appreciation when she joined Pinoy Big Brother. “Now more than ever na-appreciate ko na po lahat ng bagay. Sa bahay ni kuya maraming mga bagay na nawala sa amin na pagnatalo kami sa challenge wala kaming food for a certain time, na paghihirapan mo talaga ang mga certain challenges and after non may reward. As in grabe ‘yung mga ways of teaching ng bahay na magugulat ka,” she said in an interview at the press conference of her upcoming movie Camp Sawi at Le Rêve Events Venue in Quezon City.
When asked by the press if what was the reason why she decided to join Pinoy Big Brother despite the fact that she has already an established career in showbiz, she replied, “Sa akin po kasi hindi siya kung anong level ko po bilang artista. Pumasok lang din ako don una gusto ko ma-experience lang dahil napapanood ko ‘yung show, fan ako ng show simula sa simula and gusto ko lang ma-experience ng ganong bagay na hindi nararanasan ng ibang tao. Tapos when I got in tsaka ko na realize na grabe sobrang iba pala talaga kapag nandon ka, nasa loob ng bahay, hindi mo siya maco-compare sa kahit anong experience na magagawa mo outside.”
Yassi also shared what James Reid, one of her close friends and a former housemate himself, told her after she got out of the house. “He said that he was proud of me and he also said that he was happy that I went through it because it was a different experience,” she relayed.
She also shared that James and her other close friend Nadine Lustre invited her to a bonding session after she left the PBB house.
“Pagkalabas na pagkalabas ko ng bahay kasi Friday night, kasi Monday Greece sila, so sakto pumunta ako sa kanila. Nag-text ako sa kanila, ‘I’m out of the house.’ Tapos sabi nila ‘We’re leaving for Greece on Monday come here now.’ So pumunta ako don tapos nag-usap kami. As in hinangaan ko talaga lahat ng sumuporta, sumubok ng 100 days. Ako I was there siguro mga 30 days tapos ang dami ko ng napagdaanan paano pa sila [James].”
The actress was also asked if she is a Kapamilya now? “I’m signed with Viva and I’ve been signed with Viva. Sa network naman po abangan niyo na lang po kung ano ang gagawin ko susunod sa ABS(CBN),” she commented.
