The first thing I told Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon when I joined her table during yesterday’s lunch event at Union Jack Tavern was “do you know long and winding the discussions went when I blogged about you and that Mocha Uson incident?” And she was like the least bit surprised. She wanted to read the entire transcript, but I cautioned her not to but do at your own risk if you will.
Mariel has her own true identity, and it is one that might have spawned from a combination of the relatively contrasting personalities of her celebrity parents. She can be very vocal, but she will never continuously offend like a raging bull. She knows her parameters clearly well, although there will always be some scattered and unguarded moments when she would express her mind like a free spirit. That is how I read this oft-bashed beauty. There is a certain method to understanding her ways (something she might have acquired from her popular fathet) but it is far from plain acting or internalizing a role. The quiescent quality could have been a trait straight out of her (still known and active in TV as a character actress) mother’s public and private persona. So what you really get is a tempered quality of being forthright.I am loving it that whenever I see Mariel and Rachel (Peters) together, there is a developing sisterly bond that makes them somewhat source their strengths from each other.
You either just like Mariel or love her. I bet that you will never dislike or hate her to the max because the minute you get to sit down with her and talk, the impression will be far from what you may have created in your mind based on what the news or social media has created for purposes of public perception. 🙂
