Elisse Joson remained overwhelmed by the immense support that her love team with Hashtags member McCoy de Leon has been receiving.
After being paired on Pinoy Big Brother Lucky 7: Celebrity Edition, their tandem known as McLisse was immediately booked for appearances. They were tapped to become part of the music video of the Rocksteddy song “Kung Magiging Tayo.” They also recently appeared on Magandang Buhay and are currently part of the primetime show FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
Elisse also became part of the recently-concluded Hashtags: The Road Trip Concert at the KIA Theater as McCoy’s special guest.
In an exclusive interview with Elisse, she admitted that she’s still wrapping her head around everything that’s going on.
“Nakakaguat lahat. Nakaka-overwhelm. ‘Yung sa Probinsyano siyempre bigating show ‘yan and bigatin ang mga artista so nakaka-pressure din na kailangan galingan namin kasi ang mga kasama namin veteran actors,” she said.
She says they make it a point to help each other on the set of the show.
“Lagi before mag-take we would pray, siyempre. Tapos kung may hihingin sa amin kinakausap muna namin ang isa’t-isa,” said Elisse.
Elisse is well aware that there are a good number of people who are rooting for McLisse.
“Nung una parang ‘di kami makapaniwala na maraming sumuporta sa amin kasi nga hindi naman talaga kami pinag-love team talaga. It happened lang rin,” she began.
The touted “Hugot Girl” however shared that along with their supporters come the bashers to whom McCoy is still adjusting.
“So lagi siyang pinapaalalahanan na ‘wag niyang damdamin kasi ‘yung mga nakakakilala naman sa kanya alam naman kung gaano siy kabait at ka-sincere,” shared Elisse.
One of the foremost “criticisms” about the two is the fact that they are supposedly “too showy” on social media.
“Hindi ko alam how to respond to that pero I do want to say na ‘yung mga kulitan namin sa Twitter, it’s natural lang,” explained Elisse.
She pointed out that they never really plan anything when it comes to their social media posts.
“Hindi namin sinasadya na ‘uy mag-re-reply ako dito’ or ‘uy kailangan kong sagutin ito.’ Ako kapag may nakita akong tweet sa kanya aasarin ko na siya ‘yun po. Hindi naman sa meant na parang maging PDA, it just happens naturally,” she ended.
