Donita Rose took to social media to address those bashing her newfound love.
The actress-TV host recently introduced her new partner Felson Palad.
In an Instagram post, Donita penned a lengthy message to express her gratitude to everyone who has been sending her love and support as she navigates a new chapter in her life.
“Although I’m currently a little overwhelmed with work deadlines & can’t answer all comments, for now, I just want to thank everyone for their overwhelmingly touching messages,” she said.
But in the same post, Donita couldn’t help but respond to those who have been sending her hate comments, making memes, and trolling her and Felson.
Despite getting negative comments, Donita said she and Felson still prayed for her bashers.
“There have also been a ton of negative comments from netizens regarding articles written about us and our social media posts, some making memes and trolling on us. Yes, they have been painful for me, I’ll admit, but just know that @felsonpalad and I prayed blessings for them,” she said.
She went on to say how happy she is that Felson and his family managed to handle the bashing, quite relatively unchartered waters for her partner.
“Am so incredibly proud of how he and his family have handled this. Mind you, he has been unfazed & extremely amused, to say the least about the negativity & we are excited now, more than ever to proclaim God’s faithfulness & goodness in our lives,” she stated.
Meanwhile, Donita said she doesn’t live for the approval of anyone, but admitted that she finds strength in people who share positive messages for her and her partner.
“I do not live for the approval or the praises of man but I do find encouragement from the love we are receiving. Much love back to everyone. There are so many wonderful stories and bellyaching hilarious moments of us to share but for now, this is what’s most on my heart,” Donita said.
Donita was previously married to Eric Villarama. They tied the knot in a wedding in the US. They then divorced in 2016.
