Marian Rivera Says She's A Certified 'Labandera' At Her Home

MARIAN RIVERA was visibly surprised when Executive VP Yolly Yabut of Personal Collection Direct Selling Inc. handed her a beautiful heart-shaped trophy called the Dealers’ Choice Award. She got it for winning in their survey as to who should be the perfect brand ambassador for their fabric conditioners called Sof & MMMMM Premium Fragrances. “Hindi ko akalaing may ganito palang award waiting for me,” she said at the product launch in Luxent Hotel.

A video showed that almost all the dealers voted for her. “Ang layo ng lamang niya doon sa susunod,” says ad executive Don Remo (the father of “Binoy Henyo”) who handled the launch. Don told us who comes after Marian, but of course, we’re not at liberty to divulge who she is here.

Personal Collection’s Asst. VP Anne Roxas said Marian is the ideal endorser for Sof as she’s so fresh, clean and fragrant like their product. “As one our top stars, she has the perfect combination to personify our product’s Premium Fragrance,” adds Anne.

But does Marian do the laundry herself? “Yes. Wala akong kasamabahay. May naglalaba for me, pero siempre, yung personal undergarments ko, ako mismo ang naglalaba and I use Personal Collection products dahil effective talaga.”

Aside from Sof, they also have Blue Wave, PowerMax and Tuff Powder Detergent and Disinfectant Spray, Wild Fire and ForMen Body Spray, Sophia For Women, White Dove Baby Products, Glutalight, HBS Immuno C, LiverProtect, Revitalife Coffee Mix, Alert Toothpaste and various apparel for men and women. Personal Collection has been in business for ten years but it’s only now that they got an endorser and Marian is it.

Meantime, Marian is beaming as her primetime soap “Carmela” continues to get great feedback from its loyal viewers. “Mas marami silang dapat abangan na exciting happenings this week,” she says. “Magkikita na kami ni Alden Richards as Yago sa municipio where I work for his Lolo Fernando, si Roi Vinzon, na siyang town mayor. Nagtaka siya nang magsinungaling sa kanya ang lolo niya about me and I tell him the truth na gusto kong maghiganti kay Fernando dahil sa pang-aaping ginawa nito sa amin ng nanay ko, si Agot Isidro as Amanda, noong araw. Pero hindi ko pa alam na si Alden, apo pala ni Roi. Nalaman naman ni Laurice Guillen as Fides na may kursunada sa akin ang asawa niyang si Roi kaya binalaan ito. Naging malupit naman si Laurice kay Krystal Reyes as Janine nang malamang tunay na anak pala ito ni Roi.”
