MANILA (Mabuhay) — Yassi Pressman has reacted to comments that she never showed her “true personality” when she was still part of the ABS-CBN reality program “Pinoy Big Brother.”
Pressman said she respects people’s opinions but she knows that what she showed how she really is in real life inside the “PBB” house.
“Kung sino talaga ako sa loob at sa labas, ganito po talaga ako. Kaya nagugulat ‘yung iba na, ‘Hindi puwedeng ganyan lang si Yassi kasi ganyan siya sa TV.’ Pero ganito talaga ako,” she said.
Pressman also clarified that she doesn’t have any ill feelings towards radio host DJ Chacha, who supposedly had issues against her.
“Kanina po magkasama kami. As in kung sino daw ako sa bahay, ganun talaga rin ako in real life hindi niya lang po talaga alam. Very thankful din naman ako na nagsalita rin siya agad [to defend me sa show ni] Boy Abunda the next day [after she left ‘PBB’],” she said.
Asked what’s her takeaway from her “PBB” experience, Pressman said: “Appreciation po, more than anything at pakikipagtulungan… Kung ano ang meron tayo na hindi natin pinapahalagahan, pina-realize yun sa akin ni kuya.”
Following her “PBB” stint, does Pressman plan to officially return to ABS-CBN?
“Abangan niyo,” she said with a teasing smile on her face.
Pressman started her TV career at the age of six doing commercials. She later took it to the next level by joining ABS-CBN’s “Gulong ng Palad” in 2006.
From then on, Pressman has done supporting roles for films like “Diary ng Panget” and “Talk Back and You’re Dead.”
She has also headlined her own romantic-comedy flick with Andre Paras in Viva Film’s Valentine offering, “Girlfriend for Hire,” early this year.
Presmann’s latest project is the movie “Camp Sawi.” (MNS)
