Ivana Alawi said that there was one host who shouted at her during her early days in the entertainment industry.
Ivana made the revelation by playing a game called “Sagot o Lagot” together with her brother Hash.
One of the questions asked was if she had a fight with a fellow artist?
Ivana said she never had a fight with any artist but she remembered there was one occasion where a host shouted at her in front of a huge crowd when she was still a newbie.
“Ako ‘yung inaway. Then hiyang-hiya ako noon. Umiyak ako noon tapos tumawag ako kay mama. Ang sabi niya, ‘Okay lang ‘yan. Hayaan mo na.’ Kasi wala naman talaga akong mali. Kaya hindi ko maintindihan bakit ako ang pinuntahan doon at pinagsisigawan sa harap ng ibang artista.”
Ivana also re-enacted what happened inside the dressing room. The said angry celebrity said to her while shouting and pointing finger at her,
” Bawal kayo pumasok kayong pumasok sa dressing room ko, bast0s!”
Hash then asked her to give a clue by stating the first letter of the name of the host, Ivana said the letter ‘M.’
Netizens went into a guessing frenzy and were quick to speculate that the host Ivana was alluding to is TV host Mariel Padilla.
Supposedly, the whole incident became a running joke on “It’s Showtime,” with Vice Ganda constantly reminding Mariel about it.
Several posts of netizens on Twitter speculated that Vice Ganda confirmed that the said incident really happened. The netizens said that the Unkabogable Star once mentioned in the noontime show the story regarding the “galit” of Mariel Padilla.
It was also alleged that Vice mentioned the name of Ivana Alawi and her PA at that time.
Here are some tweets from netizens regarding this:
Mariel on the other hand is still silent about the issue.
Meanwhile, Ivana hasn’t come out to confirm or deny the speculation.
Your thoughts? Is it really Mariel?
