It’s really hard to hear such negative statements from other people, especially that you consider them as one of your nicest friends.
This is what Kapamilya actress Maris Rascal felt when fellow actress Bela Padilla said that she is a “bad influence” to her.
Bela previously said this remark after Maris posted their pictures in Siargao that features them wearing a bikini.
In an interview in “Tonight with Boy Abunda”, Maris said that she was hurt so much with Bela’s remark especially that she considers her as a friend.

“I admire [her] because napakamalalim niyang tao… Sobrang galing siyang magsulat and to call her na bad influence sa akin, sobrang na-hurt ako,” Maris told Tito Boy.
She added: I’m actually very thankful na nakilala ko siya kasi very nice siya na babae. Very independent. Very brave and hindi lang talaga nila alam kung ano yung pinag-uusapan namin…about K drama, very fun and lagi niyang sine-share yung magagandang natututunan niya about the craft.
Maris also said that just because she wears a bikini, it doesn’t mean that she is already bad.
She explained that women should not be degraded for just wearing a bikini with confidence.
Moreover, Maris accepted that she is a “liberated” person but she said that the label should not bear any negative connotation.
“May mga tao talagang bina-box yung babae na they should be conservative, mahinhin and if you don’t follow that tatawagin ka nilang liberated, which they think sobrang negative ng word na yun.
For me being liberated is having the freedom to do whatever you want. And do whatever you think is right kasi may choice naman yung mga tao gawin yung gusto nila,” Maris said.
Maris added: Sa akin po hindi mali yun at hindi naman yun nakaka-degrade sa sarili mo… hindi nakakabawas ng pagkababae if you show some skin. Tama na yung pagtawag nila ng liberated and I think mas i-embrace nila yung confidence ng babae.
