MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Herlene Budol gave her thoughts on leaving Miss Grand Philippines after her controversy regarding how she answered the interview questions. However, she has decided to continue.
In an episode of Fast Talk with Boy Abunda on Wednesday, she wondered if she deserved to be in the pageant after reading the comments about her situation.
She was confronted with bashing, which made her doubt herself.
“Umabot sa punto na hindi ako nakakatulog, hindi ako nakakapag-cellphone, dinelete ko lahat ng apps ko sa cellphone ko at hindi na ako kumakain din ng two days. First time po kasi na ganu’n kadami,” she says.
“Nababasa ko lahat ng comment, sabi ko nga sa kanila, ‘Ang galing niyong mam-bash. Naapektuhan ako.’ ‘Yung mental health ko, zero talaga,’” Herlene admitted.
She knew that her answers were wrong, so she did not deny the claims of the bashers. Despite her getting treatment from bashers, she still decided to continue.
“Kung lumaban po ako ngayon, win or lose Tito Boy, kahit lumaban ako ngayon, matalo o manalo ako, at least ‘yung tinatawag nilang inspirasyon, lumalaban lang hanggang dulo,” she said.
Budol said that she was serious about the pageant and apologized for not understanding the questions given to her.
“Para sa akin naman po seryoso naman po ako roon sa ginagawa kong ito. Pero hindi ko ho talaga maintindihan ‘yung tanong. Hindi ko ho alam kung bakit kahit sanay naman akong tanungin nang tanungin ng maraming tao,” she added. – WhatALife!/Zain
