MYXclusive: MAYMAY ENTRATA Is One Proud Bisdak!

What comes to mind when you hear the name "Maymay"? If you were to ask our MYX Celebrity VJ herself, her answer would be "Masiyahin. Mapagmahal. Maalaga."

These traits are exactly what led Marydale Entrata to victory on Pinoy Big Brother. From the joyful Bisaya girl who inspired thousands of Filipino teens, she is now one of the most sought-after celebrities today. Maymay's charismatic presence is everywhere!

I personally wasn't able to follow her journey inside the PBB house. But every time Maymay's name cropped up in conversations with my co-workers, they always deemed her as Big Winner material. Even on my way to work, I would overhear fellow passengers speaking about her - always full of compliments.

Before she stepped inside the studio for her MYX Celebrity VJ taping, I was lucky enough to have a one-on-one interview with Maymay. It was more of a casual conversation rather than a serious talk. Once I told her to just be spontaneous, she instantly burst into waves of laughter. Then I commenced our chit-chat by asking her to take me on a trip down memory lane.

Maymay describes her stay inside the PBB house as a "roller coaster ride." But at the end of the day, she recognizes that each moment she spent in the famous yellow house was part of a long and winding path which eventually paved her way to success.

She also recollected her experiences before being surrounded by cameras 24/7. According to Maymay, each time she gazes back at her life as a young lass in Mindanao, she can't help but be filled with wonder and awe over the things that have occurred over the past year. "Ayoko mawala yung ganitong feeling," she said with a deep sigh.

The fangirl on having her own fans

"Masaya ako na nakikita sila na masaya. At dahil dun, hina-handle ko through kasiyahan din, sa pagbibigay ng kasiyahan sa kanila dahil priceless ang makita silang masaya. Nandun yung willingness na ibigay ang best ko dahil alam ko pag binigay ko 'yung best ko magiging masaya silang lahat at magbibigay ng pag-asa sa karamihan lalo na 'yung mga nangangarap."

On being a MYX Celebrity VJ

"Oh my gas. Una, natulala ako. Parang talaga ba, totoo ba 'to, ipagkakatiwala niyo sa akin ang pagiging VJ? Kasi wala naman po akong karanasan sa pagiging VJ pero gagawin ko 'yung best ko, bahala na!"

She continues: "Masayang-masaya dahil sobrang malaking opportunity nito. Kasi kami dun sa Camiguin, mura lang ang cable dun. Walang sine-sine dun di ba? Tapos mahilig kami sa MYX. Iniintay namin kung sino number 1 tapos nagtatalo-talo kami. Eto number 1, si Sarah G, Ikot-Ikot."

On her upcoming album

"Ang mga kanta dito masasabi niyo po talaga na "Oh si Maymay 'to" kasi jolly 'yung mga kanta ko. Meron din pong kasama si Edward."

On how she really feels about Edward

"Sobrang matalik na kaibigan talaga, sobra. Isa siya sa mga lalaking napaka-close ko. Si Kuya, siya, tapos yung childhood friend ko din sa Davao na may pagka-bakla. Tapos may best friend din po ako sa Cagayan de Oro, dalawa sila magkapatid then isa na po siya [Edward] dun kasi ano po siya eh, go lang ng go," she quipped.

Proud of her roots

Asked for her message to all the fans who supported her from the start, she freely put into words her gratitude to all of them in Bisaya.

"Daghang salamat sa inyong tanan. Salamat sa inyong pagsuporta. Ang akon lang maingon sa inyo lipay ko nga gitagaan ako niyo ug opportunity para mahatag nako ang pangandoy which is ang hope. Kay kabalo gyud ko nga kadamhanan sa inyo nawala na gyud pag-asa. Pero gusto ko la ipakita sa inyo na wala gyud imposible kung muadto mo gyud kay God. Thank you po. Love you all."

Before I left her dressing room, I wished Maymay the best of luck on her MYX Celebrity VJ stint. She thanked me and proudly represented her Bisaya heritage by shouting "Bisdak baya ni, Sir!"


Good vibes all the way. @maymay_entrata0506 ??????
