Maricar Reyes gets married (plus what I think about sex videos!)

I don't follow local celebrity news. It's only when really big scandals or events happen when I get interested. So I was very surprised to find how happy I felt when this popped up on my Facebook feed.

I'm so happy for Maricar! We're not friends, okay? I've never even met her. But we used to be neighbors. I'd see her all the time in the elevator, the lobby, at the bank, the laundromat. I wanted to say hi because we had the same friends (magazine editors, makeup artists, stylists) but since we became neighbors after her sex video scandal, I was shy to say hi because, well, I don't know. I was afraid she'd think I was intruding.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I agree with what her groom said about her:



All the time I saw Maricar in our condo compound, she didn't have makeup talaga. Her hair would just be in a ponytail. She always had a baseball cap pushed low on her head. She'll be in pambahay, naka-flip flops lang. No entourage. There's a lot of celebrities where I live kasi and they always always always have an entourage! Nakakinis kasi napupuno nila yung elevator and ang ingay-ingay nila. Si Maricar wasn't like that. She was always alone, never called attention to herself. She lined up at the bank. She picked up her laundry and I was always tempted to say, "You know, the laundromat has a delivery service." Really simple girl!

Now I know everyone makes such a big deal about her sex video. I didn't think it was scandalous at all. People have sex. It's a natural and beautiful part of the human experience. If it had been a video of her doing drugs, killing someone, stealing, then that would be a scandal. What's scandalous about the video was the fact that it was a private act and everyone got to see it. Too bad. But at least she and her partner were gorgeous! 

I don't have a sex video because I don't think my body is beautiful enough for a sex video haha. Nope, no matter how many times my husband assures me! I think only sexy, gorgeous people should have sex videos. And now, after two pregnancies, it kinda looks awful haha. Lalo na with the mega megapixel and HD cameras now? Naku, lahat ng stretchmarks, cellulite, pekas, peklat, pimples, wrinkles, kagat ng lamok at kamot makikita! Haaay, no no no. Papayag lang ako kapag may beauty and styling team, bright lights, and the best video editors! Kung alam ko lang na ganito magiging itsura ng katawan ko, pumayag na sana ako nung honeymoon namin hahaha. Alas, the time for sex videos has ended for me! 

Too bad because my husband looks better now than 14 years ago. Since he took up running, he's gotten leaner and sexier! There's not a lot of 39-year-old daddies who can whip off their shirts and shorts and sport abs and limbs rippling with muscles. Sigh! Okay. I'm done blogging. I go look for my hubby now. Bye!

  1. Kim Kardashian said something like that after her sex video became public. Kim said she doesn't consider it a scandal because she was making love with her boyfriend at the time. It's not like she was screwing someone else's husband or was caught cheating. A lot of people don't like Kim K., but she had my respect with that perspective of what happened to her.

    1. Exactly. Sex between two loving people isn't scandalous. It should be celebrated! Unless it's an adulterous affair. Ibang usapan yun!

      P.S. I like Kim K, too!

  2. Oh wow! :) That's what I like about Maricar Reyes, that she is really simple and she kept her silence through the 'scandal'. She wasn't going on TV crying and asking for sympathy. I think people admired her for that. In short, she had class and breeding.

    Congratulations to them! Wow!! :)

  7. Im happy for Maricar too. I actually admire her for being quite all the time hindi nya pinatulan yung issue regarding sa scandal na yan. Never nga bumaba ang tingin ko kay Maricar minalas lang sya. Ang swerte nga ni Richard Poon sa kanya. Mukhang mabait naman talaga sya. I like Maricars smile (d0 I sound tomboy hahaha?) Hindi nya ako fan but I like her personality.

  8. i liked the fact that she did not speak at all about it when the videos came out. she chose to focus on her work on TV. i saw her in Cebu last May, and she's very pretty talaga.

  9. You're so funny, F. You always have a lighter mood, lighter perspective on things. I admire Maricar then and even more so now. ;)

  10. Haha, agree! I think Ms. Reyes is luminous, and I'm glad to hear that she hasn't put on airs despite the celebrity. That and the way she handled the "incident" make her more beautiful, in my opinion. And speaking of gorgeous women, I have to say this even if it'll make me sound like a crazy stalker - I used to see your comments on Chuvaness's LiveJournal account, and I thought your profile picture was so cute. But after quickly going through your blog, I realize that it doesn't do you justice. Have a great day!

    1. Yes! She's so simple grabe. Kahit ako na ordinaryong tao, I have some airs haha Like I really couldn't fathom why she picks up her laundry when there's a delivery service!

      Thanks for saying what you said about my looks. I'm very photogenic! In real life, I'm really ordinary looking haha
