Neri Naig after the video scandal

Months after her video scandal with boyfriend Chito Miranda shocked the nation, Neri Naig can now look back and think about the good it brought her.
 
“Embrace mo lang talaga yung positivity, positive na outlook. Kasi may gawin ka man na maganda o may gawin ka man na hindi, you can’t please everybody naman,” Neri said at the story conference of TV5’s upcoming teleserye “Obsession.”

It was her first time to face the press after the scandal broke out and the video that sparked it went viral.
 
“Once na ang nagsabi sa iyo ay yung taong pinakamamahal mo, doon ka mag-breakdown. Kasi kilala ka nila personally and alam mo yung totoo. Alam mo naman sa sarili mo kung tunay o hindi. So, iyon lang ang pinanghahawakan ko. Basta alam kong wala akong inaapakang tao, okay ka na.”

Instead of brooding about the controversy, Neri has turned it into something positive.

“Kasi sunod-sunod, hindi lang iyon. Marami ring nangyari. Pero ginagawa ko na lang joke minsan sa sarili ko. Thankful naman ako na sobrang okay ang support ng mga tao sa paligid ko. Talagang nirerespeto nila ako kapag nakikita ko sila.”

The former Star Circle Quest contestant, who is making her acting comeback after years of being inactive, said she prefers quality over quantity where projects are concerned.
 
“Hindi ko naman gusto yung laging nandiyan. Okay lang ako na bigyan niyo ako ng okay na project. Thankful naman ako na ganoon, na maganda yung binibigay nila.”

Neri plays a depressed character in “Obsession,” which  also stars Marvin Agustin, Bianca King and Alwyn Uytingco.
 
“Gusto ko lang yung passion. Nakakatuwa naman na kaya ko palang umarte nang ganito, yung napaglalaruan ko yung different characters,” Neri added.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
