In her most recent vlog, Andrea Brillantes gamely read and reacted to people's assumptions about her, from going under the knife to being "suplada" and not having that many friends in the entertainment industry.

"Hindi po ako retokada pero thanks for thinking that. Ibig sabihin may maganda sa mukha ko para maisip niyo na retokada ako," said the actress.


"Kung titingnan niyo rin naman 'yung mga baby pictures ko, kung iisipin niyo na peke 'yung ilong ko... Tumubo lang 'tong bridge ko noong 'Kadenang Ginto' kasi manas na manas 'yung mukha ko dati at doon ako nagsimulang pumayat. Tsaka nagma-mature kasi talaga ang mukha," she added.

Andrea, who is best known for her kontrabida role in Kadenang Ginto, said that contrary to her character as Marga, she was actually considered the "loser" in her school.

"Ako 'yung nabu-bully lagi sa school. Lagi nilang tinatawag na higad ako, kasi nga sa kilay ko, tsaka kasi ako 'yung pinakamaliit... Wala akong friends, as in pagpasok ko pa lang sa school, nursery pa lang, wala na akong friends. Hindi nila ako sinasali sa laro nila, lagi lang akong nasa corner. Ako 'yung ganung bata dati," she explained.

The actress said her experience of being bullied in school made her shy and distant from other people, and it is because of this that some think of her as "maldita" and "suplada."

"Ang dami talagang taong nagsasabi na suplada ako. Dati kasi sobrang mahiyain ako. Kasi nga 'di ba ako 'yung laging hindi pinapansin, ako 'yung laging nasa sulok lang, ako 'yung laging binu-bully so hindi ako namamansin ng mga tao kasi feeling ko lahat sila aawayin lang ako," she said.

She went on: "Pero ngayon winork out ko na 'yung personality ko kasi nami-misinterpret 'yung pagiging mahiyain ko sa pagiging maldita. 'Yung wall ko medyo bine-break ko na siya. Kahit maraming masamang tao hindi dapat 'yun maging dahilan para baguhin mo 'yung pagiging mabait mo."

In her vlog, Andrea also answered the assumption that she doesn't have many friends in the entertainment industry.

"Lumaki naman talaga akong walang friends. Hindi lang kasi importante sa akin na marami akong kaibigan. Kasi nga believe it or not, alam ko alam niyo naman na maraming plastic sa showbiz," the actress pointed out.

Referring to her love team partner, Andrea said: "Meron akong friend, si Seth (Fedelin) duh. So I'm not lonely. Tsaka kasi hindi lang talaga ako ma-post na lumalabas kami kasama nito, kasama ni ganyan."
