Many actors in the past have been hated by audiences after playing a kontrabida role. But Wendy Valdez does not share such concern as she takes on the role of Patricia, the office ‘queen of mean’ in the much anticipated I Love Betty La Fea. During the special press visit at the EcoModa Manila office set, ABS-CBN.com spoke to Wendy about her newest TV character.
"Bakit pa ako magwo-worry. Kung maling accusations nga na-carry ko, ito pa kaya e role lang ito. I think with my role as Patricia people would understand kasi mas open-minded na sila. I am portraying Patricia but they know that I am not Patricia." she said with reference to the negative image she had in the past.
Wendy became a household name when she caused a huge public uproar for her stint in Pinoy Big Brother Season 2 last year. In spite winning as 3rd Big Placer in the hit reality show, the beauty queen-commercial model was booed by the whole Araneta Coliseum because of her highly publicized fight with the other housemates.
But instead of mourning over the incident, Wendy kept her head up high and never looked back since then. She went on to star in numerous teleseryes beginning with Margarita (where she played the title role), then Palos opposite Cesar Montano, and Your Song presents I’ll Take Care Of You with Zanjoe Marudo and Angelica Panganiban.
"I don’t want to dwell in the past. Maganda ang mga nangyayari sa buhay ko ngayon. Though people will always have something bad to say about me, it doesn’t matter for as long as hindi ako apektado sa mga sinasabi nila. Basta nagtatrabaho ako ng maayos." she said.
Wendy could only be thankful for having been entrusted with the best projects, something she never planned or expected. She would rather not make an issue about outshining her other PBB batch mates, most of whom she still treat as friends up to now.
Just last week at the party of TJ Cruz, the brother of ex-housemate Bodie, Wendy was reunited with her other PBB colleagues Bruce, Gee-Ann, Nel, Saicy, Jasmine, Mommy Yen, and Mommy Gie.
Watch out for Wendy as Patricia when I Love Betty La Fea debuts very soon. Check out www.ABS-CBN.com and ilovebettylafea.multiply.com for exclusive news, photos, and videos.
