An Open Letter To Our Fans

Hi! You might be wondering what this letter is about. Ako din, I am wondering what this letter is going to be about. I do not actually know how to start writing this letter; and I do not actually know either if it is right to do this. All I know for sure is I need to let some things out of my chest. And I couldn’t find any other way to do it so I am writing here on my blog, like I used to.

Bago ang lahat gusto ko muna magpasalamat sainyo. Sa lahat ng suporta at pagmamahal na ibinigay at ipinakita niyo sa amin. Sa mga bagay na isinakripisyo niyo alang-alang sa akin/aming dalawa ni Alden. At sa lahat ng iba niyo pang nagawa lalong-lalo na ang pagtulong niyo sa kapwa. Habang buhay akong magpapasalamat sa Diyos dahil dumating kayo sa buhay ko at nakilala ko kayo. Maraming salamat sa panahon at sa pagkakataon.

By the end of this letter I am pretty sure majority of you are going to turn your backs on me and probably hate on me. Pero sabi nga nila, speak the truth even if your voice shakes.

When I was new in the business, you all came to my life and loved me for exactly the way I am. Hindi ko kinailangang magpanggap para mahalin niyo. At nagpapasalamat ako dahil tinanggap at minahal niyo kung sino at ano ako bilang tao. Nagpapasalamat din ako sa Diyos siyempre dahil binigyan niya ako “kakayahan” at pagkakataon na magbigay ligaya sa iba. I honestly could not be more thankful for the gift of making people happy by just being myself. I believe that is a rarity here in the world of show business, but I am really thankful God had given me that some kind of knack. Maaaring wala nga akong talento pero masaya ako na nakakapagpasaya ako ng ilang mga tao. That’s more then enough for me.

I used to be REALLY amazed by the support AlDub was getting back then. I was overwhelmed by all the attention and support you are giving us. AlDub Nation 2015, ang saya saya lang. When everyone was taking things lightly and we were all just so happy. Do you still remember the good ol’ days? Back when things are so not complicated? Still worth remembering up to this time. Two years later, a lot has changed but some things remained the same. Masaya pa din kayo. I can see how happy you guys are whenever you are all together. Iba yung saya niyo tuwing magkakasama kayo. Masasabi kong ibang klase yung pagkakaibigan at samahan na nabuo sa pagsuporta niyo sa amin. At hindi ako magsasawang ulit-ulitin na sana huwag mawala yan kahit ano pa ang mangyari.

Marami kayong nagagawa hindi lang para sa amin ni Alden, kundi para na din sa iba. Marami kayong ibang natutulungan na mas higit na nangangailangan. At nagpapasalamat ako dahil ginagawa niyo yan ng kusa, dahil mayroon kayong busilak na kalooban. Salamat dahil ultimo kayo ay nakakapagpasaya din ng iba pang mga tao.

I am grateful to have all of you who have walked this path with me. But I need to be honest, I am at this point where I feel like I live in a box. I have not been able to do what I want and say what I feel because every time I try to express my thoughts and feelings, some of you tend to misapprehend and invalidate them in so many ways. Telling me I am not supposed to feel that way because I am “rich and famous”. Telling me I have no right to be sad and hurt because I have everything a person could ask for. Judging, blaming and getting mad at me for expressing what I truly feel just because you do not agree and it is inconvenient for you. Dictating me what I should feel and should not feel. Ang hirap. Yung mga taong nagsasabi na wala akong dapat na maramdaman kundi kaligayahan kasi pinagpapala ako at dapat akong magpasalamat sakanila (at sakanila lang) dahil “wala naman ako kung wala sila”. Do not get me wrong, I am thankful for everything I have right now. And I have the Lord and the people who helped and supported me along the way to thank for that. I just could not take how some people feel so entitled in so many things, hindi lang sa career, ultimo personal na buhay. Minsan nga tinatanong ko ang sarili ko, sino ba talaga ang gumawa sa akin? Ang Diyos ba o sila? Pagmamay-ari ba nila buong pagkatao ko para diktahan ako sa halos lahat ng bagay? Bakit ganun? Ganun ba dapat kapag mahal mo yung tao? Susubukan mong kontrolin ng naaayon sa kagustuhan mo? Dahil tingin mo yun yung tama? Dahil tingin mo doon siya liligaya?

Dumating yung araw na naramdaman ko na para bang hindi na ako masaya. Na kahit sandamakmak ang biyaya ang natatanggap ko, nawala na yung ligaya sa puso ko. Hindi ko na makita yung tuwa sa mga ngiti ko at kinang sa mga mata ko. Hanggang sa napagtanto ko na iyon pala ay dahil sa ilang mga tao na nakapaligid sa akin. Yung mga taong akala ko ay tunay na nagmamalasakit at nagmamahal sa akin. Mahirap. Nahihirapan akong dinidiktahan ng mga dapat kong gawin at maramdaman. Napagtanto ko na nakokompromiso na yung kalayaan at kaligayahan ko. At hindi ko kayang mamuhay ng ganoon. I want to be able to do what I want and what makes me happy because I believe that is how life should be. I do not want to compromise my own happiness for other people’s desires. So this time, I am choosing myself. Ako naman.

When AlDub happened, everything escalated. My life changed drastically when Kalyeserye began. We’ve had blessings on top of blessings. Alden and I were given so much more than we could ask for. But more than anything, we will be forever thankful that God had given us people like you. People who support us in the things we do; those who always stood by our sides and defended us against judgments and criticisms; those who love us truthfully as a pair and as two different individuals; and those who never gave up. And for all the love and efforts you have given us, you deserve to know the truth that at this very moment Alden and I are just friends. We are a love team.

I hope you understand that I am here because I love making people happy. I am blessed to be in Eat Bulaga because I get to do what I want to do, and I get to be with such amazing people. I was never into money or fame. All I want in this life is to be free and happy. And I am certain that no amount of fame and money can ever give me genuine happiness. All my life I have been seeking love from people around me. And that is all that matters to me at this moment. As I have said, as you finish reading this letter, a lot of you would probably turn your backs on me. I am ready for it; I knew this day would come. Even if I am left with a small number of supporters after posting this, kahit sampu lang yan, for as long as I know (and I feel) they truly love me and care for me, I’ll be fine. Or even if I am left with none, I have family and friends who love me dearly and will never leave my side whatever happens. Sapat na yun para sa akin.

I also owe this to everyone who were dragged into this. Our families, friends, and workmates are being bashed and ridiculed by some. Kahit sinong madikit sa amin pinagiisipan at pinagsasalitaan ng hindi maganda. Basta hindi naaayon sa kagustuhan ang mga nakikita, nagagalit. It hurts me seeing them being hurt. It hurts me how some of you are so capable and so proud of throwing so much hate on others– especially on people who care about us. Family and friends outside the industry are being taken into the wrong context, even if they do not have anything to do with the issues thrown at us. Hiling ko ang ay sana bigyan natin sila ng respeto. Naiintindihan ko na pinoprotektahan niyo lang kami, at nagpapasalamat ako sa lahat ng ginagawa niyong pagtatanggol sa amin, pero sana maintindihan niyo din na hindi kailangan maliitin ang pagkatao ng iba. Hindi niyo sila kailangan tirahin ng masasamang salita, Alam kong karamihan ng pinagdadaanan ko ngayon ay parte ng mundong ginagalawan ko. But some things are really getting out of hand, kailangan na din natin ilagay sa wasto. But then again, I know, that at the end of the day, love wins over hate. I still believe, and I fervently hope, that the same love who brought all of us here together in the beginning, will heal all scars and unite us again. Let us not focus on those who judge, but to those who love without any hesitations and expectations. I am who I am right now because of that.

Again, thank you very much for the love and support you have given me. I will forever cherish the presence of the whole fandom in my life. I do hope I have also given you enough joy for you to give me the freedom I believe I deserve. Freedom to feel what I want to feel, be what I want to be, and do what I want to do.

Alden deserves the same, too.

With so much gratitude,
That Girl

          Here comes a very long speech:

          That moment when I felt na nagiging toxic na yung fandom I left Twitter…for a while. Kasi grabe, I made friends with Aldub Nation din lalo na that time was the phase where I was recovering fron my depression when my Mom died and I never get to attend her burial cuz nasa barko pa ako. Kalyeserye made me laughed once again, ung tawa na pinipigil ko na lang kase ang ingay ingay na sa kapitbahay na halos naka loudspeaker ung TV nanunuuod din ng Eat Bulaga. ADN was my family na nagbigay saya at sigla sa akin na di ko mahanap sa real family ko nun. Eventually the kiligan came na sa akin bonus na lang kase I know na it could be reel lang talaga. It was a theraphy. Di na kailangan ng kung anung appointments sa doctor or medications I was back on track and even started working again. Pero di nagtagal nalungkot ako sa araw araw na lang na puro away, factions mismo sa fandom at OA issues sa feed ko. THAT WAS IT. I left the fandom but still continued supporting them started my own account na talaga. What I was concerned was Meng and Alden. There could have been a time siguro na pwede silang magkatuluyan in real life kaso ung mga fans din minsan parang mababaliw sa maliit na bagay at gagawan pa ng background story amp! Haha.

          Well anyway Meng I just want you to know Im glad u made this letter. Medyo late na ako nakabisita ulit sa blog mo kasi ayoko din ng masyadong atensyon as a fan. I was worried na you would stop showbiz pero ngayon I see naman na masaya ka na ulit. Kalyeserye was the start that saved me from my depression, mainly because of You and Alden’s pakilig (I dont care whether kayo magkatuluyan for real or not as long as ur happy and in love) and the Lola’s antics. I am sincerely praying and hoping na you find the true hapiness you deserve. Sabi nga sa kanta eh “Hayaan mo sila, Sige sige maglibang…” 😂 ok bye hahaha.
          Labyu! Mwuah!

      You get things Off your Chest, NOT let some things out of your chest”, also quit worrying about what everybody thinks. You may be a celeb, BUT live your life the way YOU want to, NOT the way everybody else wants you too !

  6. Danirose says: Reply

    Do what makes you happy. 😊 It was fate that brought you where you are right now. And yes, minsan mo pinangarap maging artista pero sa tingin ko hindi ito ang totoong makakapagpasaya sayo. I hope you can go on and free yourself. Time has reached to a point where honesty is best said than making them believe that there is really something special bet. you and Alden. Everything has to end anyways. Walang forever sometimes means starting to be free. Kaya, go girl! Go to wherever, whatever and to whoever makes you happy! 😊😍👊🏻

    I love you just the same or even more. All I want is for you to be happy like how you make me happy. I will still be one PROUD MAINEan here.

      network ang may gusto non at hindi sila. its just a show. halata nmn kay alden na pure business lang. for money. nagpadala kasi kayo sa story telling. kung fan nila talaga kayo, ramdam nyo dapat yan. hindi kayo tunay na fan kung ang hinahangaan nyo lang ay ang mga bida sa kalye serye na yan

  12. Sean Puchu says: Reply

    Yup, im that guy na super fan mo na kaya kang suportahan sa kung ano man ang gusto mo at kung kanino ka man masaya.. Ituloy mo lang yan bebe gurl, do whatever makes you happy.. kasi yun din ang Happiness ko/namin. oh Sya tama na to at kakain pa ako ng Ramen.. GBU!

    i will still stay for you & Alden. praying also for you, two. SALAMAT SA ALDUB, Maine!

  15. etxetera says: Reply

    You and Alden should have stated it before together as a team that you are merely friends. The fans with all the love and support deserves the TRUTH early on rather than playing with everyone’s feelings.

    Whatever you decide to do or to be with remember ☝ bad company corrupts GOOD character. ALWAYS TRY TO BE GOOD NO MATTER WHAT. Be yourself, but always your BETTER self.

      isipin mo, kung ginawa nila yon nung una palang, may manonood pa ba ng eat bulaga? aminin natin, bagsak ang eat bulaga bago dumating sakanila si maine. SI MAINE. kung hindi pinansin ni maine si alden, kung hindi sya kinilig kilig, nasaan ngayon ang eat bulaga? nasaan si alden ngayon? si maine, alam natin na may eat bulaga o wala, kaya nya.. kaya please, stop hating. buksan ang mata at isip. sila ang huling bala ng eatbulaga at ng buong network. aminin man natin o hindi, si maine ang nag simula ng pag sikat ulit ng GMA. isipin mo kung gano kahirap bumuhat ng buong network. mula umaga hanggang hating gabi, laman kayo ng balita. business is business. ganyan ang GMA. yan din yung tinutukoy ni maine na she feels like she is living in a box. walang kalayaan. i think gusto nya ng aminin ang totoo sa inyo. pero syempre, bawal. una palang ramdam ko ng walang totoong relasyon. halatang halata nmn. tho nag eenjoy akong manood ng kalye serye. gusto ko yung comedy and moral lesson. but the love story part, nope. ramdam ko kasi na si maine yung lugi don(kung talagang gusto nya si alden). kasi, feeling ko, sinasamantala nila yung pagka crush nya kay alden para s ratings. para magka viewers ulit ang eat bulaga. dyan nmn magaling ang GMA eh. mang gamit. after pakinabangan, hahayaan nlng basta. asan si prince charming alden para ipagtanggol si yaya? kahit na hindi totoong sila, UTANG NYA KAY MAINE ANG KASIKATAN NYA. biruin nyo, nagka concert yung may sintunadong boses, out of tune pa. may matatake ko pang kumanta si anne kurtis kesa kay alden. pero yun nga, sumikat eh. nagka concert. so asan sya ngayon? ano takot syang makielam kasi baka madamay sya? babae lang ba talaga mag sasalita? kahit nmn palagay na natin na ayaw ni maine may madamay pa, BE A MAN naman diba? sa totoo lang, im not a fan of this loveteam or kung sino man sa kanila. concern lang ako kay maine bilang tao. bilang manonood. bilang lalaki. madalas ko kasi silang napapanood dahil loyalista ng GMA ang mother ko. so no choice, pag nasa baba ako, GMA ang napapanood ko. hanggang sa natuwa nako kay maine. siguro fan na nga din ni maine. but not to the point na tulad nyo na nakikielam na ng personal na buhay.

      goodnight mahaba ng masyado 🙂

Kung wala ng maiingay na mga fans mo na nageexpect at sobrang nagcocontrol ng galaw mo, tandaan mo madami ka pa din silent fans na tulad ko na naniniwalang tuloy pa din ang support sayo.

    Meng, kaninang madaling araw nagbasa ako ng blog mo kasi I felt na mag a update ka…
    Meng, sorry, sorry if our love for you has become at times constricting. Sorry if instead of letting you soar, we have somewhat clipped your wings to be free.
    I love you (and Alden) so much and I because of that, I just want the best for both of you, so if freedom is what is best then I’ll give it. Freedom for you bith to be yourselves, to take things at your pace. But I will remain true to my vow of “WALANG IWANAN”, nandito pa rin ako para sa inyong dalawa. Kumakapit, sumusuporta, lumalaban, nagmamahal. *hugs*

    Maine,
    You are still finding your way in life. Let me pass on some advice given to me decades ago that has guided me through my life, especially in my early adult years:

    “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” – 1 Timothy 4:12

    I don’t live in your showbiz world and I can just imagine the pressures, intrigue, and temptations you face, living in that world. Pressures most especially from your and RFJ’s fans. All I can say is that biblical quote and practicing it’s meaning set the foundation for the rest of my adult life. And it has been mostly a happy one.

    I won’t try to explain the verse to you as there are many discussions and explanations on it but it boils down to living your life, in words and deeds, in accordance with your faith.

    I will be praying for you as well as Alden, that in your lives, you find happiness, contentment and peace.

  29. Mari Lourelen says: Reply

    I read this while crying, I may not be your fan that is very active in terms of you and Kuya Alden’s activities but I promised myself to always be your because you inspire me in so many ways. You always emphasize in your blog posts to always be yourself and I really told myself that multiple times. You chose the right decision Ate. I’ll keep being your supporter for I don’t know months or years. Love you!

    Proud of you Maine!

    We are here to stay, walang iwanan nga di ba?

    I am excited to see you soar high, be in showbiz or in other endeavors outside showbiz. I believe you still have talents waiting to be unlocked as you go through life.

    I pray that God will always guide you and give you the wisdom to always follow His will. And praying also that you meet genuine people to lead you in the right path.

    Thank you for being honest and continue being you. You bring us joy, you are our happy pill. Always remember that there are a lot of us who are praying for your success in your professional and personal life (Maichard shipper pa din ako forevs ❤).

    Always be happy.

    I’ll always be a fan and I’m here to stay.

  31. Hi Maine. Kahit ano mangyari, I will still support Aldub. The reason why I went to NY to wach Kalye Serye is because of you. Meron pa nga tayo picture with Alden sa elevator ng Sheraton Hotel sa Brooklyn NY.

    Gusto ko rin si Alden pero mas fan mo ako since 2015. I was on disability that time kaya nasubaybayan kita ng husto at mula noon eh naging avid fan mo ako. Yong launching ng book mo eh pinapila ko pa sister ko…just to buy the book.

    Maine I will be your “forever avid fan” with or without Alden….from mississauga, ontario, canada.

    Be happy, take care and God bless

    Juicemio kinabahan ako ng very light ha. Akala ko mag deactivate ka na naman. Eto lang pala. Eh di wow. There are different kinds of fans, meron feeling entitled, merong demanding, may peyk,merong nanggugulo lang at meron ding tahimik lang. Everyone will always have an opinion. We can’t stop pips from feeling hurt and lash out. Choice nila yan.Hayaan niyo na. Lilipas din yan. Parte na eto ng mundo ng showbiz. You take the good with the bad. Just ask DongYan, JD and other popular LTs. Wlang career path na puro saya lang. I am fan of the. Love team (Alden and Maine) at nandito ako waiting for the movie at kung anuman ang nakaplano kung meron man. That’s up to the management if they still.want to tap ADN. Basta nandito lang, naghihintay. I think ADN fest and Timeless has shown that.

    I am gobsmacked reading your letter Maine, this is a very brave and bold move. An anti thesis of show business. I am a late supporter/fan. I did not discover AlDub until May this year. Before then I had no idea who you and Alden were. My discovery of your love team was a happy accident. I was searching you tube for a good yoga session when I accidentally pressed something else, guess what it was? It was Alden Richards wearing a wet yellow shirt dancing in a makeshift rain. At that moment my image of Colin Firth wearing a wet white shirt getting out of the lake in Pride and Prejudice was completely shot to pieces… it was replaced by Alden Richards in a wet yellow shirt in slow motion. Forget hot yoga, I was off searching who this boy was. I then search him in you tube and discovered the two of you. I first watched your movie which I enjoyed immensely…your chemistry was jumping out of the screen..it seemed raw and real. I became more curious, I started watching kalyeserye from day 1. Imagine with 400 episodes I had so much to catch up on. I’m not crazy and delusional, I have a good head on top of my shoulders but my God the two of you were explosive. I felt like I was watching a reality show and that everything was real. Hell…I thought you were real. I have watched all the 63 episodes of DTBY after and all your SB episodes. By then, I was obsessed let me tell you..I would start my day by searching what AlDub is up to. I did not realise I was already stalking both of you. I truly believe the two of you were a couple. During interviews, no one was confirming or denying it!! When you were interviewed by Christine Jacob and Rachelle Alexandro and Alden said you had a mutual understanding and you did not deny it…I was over the moon. Every look, every touch, every smile in Sugod Bahay taking into account you were not suppose to be acting in that segment…I was over the moon..everyday I was more and more convinced that the two of you we’re together. Then came your face book live with team bananas and you said you were single. I asked myself what happened? I truly believed you were together…then Alden said in Thailand he was single…it confirmed my suspicion…was everything an act? What about what you see is what you get? What about transparency? I know you guys were probably just doing your job..but you cannot blame your fans to believe in more…people are praying for the two of you, for your future, for your kids, when I found you I found other people in London who were equally crazy about you. When we met, it was like going to an AA meeting. We all had a testimony a story to tell and a reason why we got hooked. I know that it has nothing to do with you and Alden. For you both it is just a job…but I know that you know that your job has great responsibilities…you change peoples lives..you change people’s moods and feelings and being responsible for people’s happiness is not easy, when I saw the news about a group of cancer patients who would watch AlDub before their chemotherapy hell that made me cry..I have been a nurse for 24 years and I can’t do that, whereas the two of you just have to look at each other and pain is lessened. I said to myself if I could do what you guys do to some of my patients…I will sacrifice everything. When I was at the LAX airport and there was a commotion outside I heard someone asking what’s going on and a Filipino woman replying: 3 things: There is a revolution, the pope is here and 3rd AlDub is here…I laughed inside..that is how big your influence is. If you and Alden rallied behind a presidential candidate back home i’m Sure it would be a landslide win. You see…your job is not easy…I understand you probably thought when you auditioned for EB this wasn’t part of the bargain but the nation had joined together and put you in such a position that has great implications in your life. I admire you for choosing yourself…that act is commendable but not selfless…I hope you continue what you do best and make people happy and for 10 minutes forget their issues in life. Your partnership with Alden is exceptional as well as phenomenal…your statement will probably impact on your effect on people….but you are both good at your jobs and we are firm supporters of AlDub and Main and Alden. What people had done and said was cruel it was a personal attack on you, and your friends, when people are hurt some would deflect that hurt and throw it to someone else. It’s human nature. You might not glance at my comment let alone read it. But I admire you for choosing yourself and the truth. From now on stick with it and you can’t go wrong. Take care of yourself and of each other…you and Alden may not be lovers but I believe you are friends!!! Be happy and be young and free!! Good luck!! Oh quick question Were you ever together? Just puzzled I’m sure all that sweetness must have sprung from somewhere.

    Brave enough to let your heart speak of what you really feel without even thingking for the possible consequences it may be. Dont even dare the effect it may cause to your career and personal life. What important is to voice out the pain in your chest TOTOO ka Meng.
    I Admired and love you for being who you are. Glam and popularity does not matter to you.
    You were being hurt not for bashing you alone but you were hurt for those people being bash just because they dont want you to be with other personality other than you and Alden as a loveteam.
    No matter what what happen,count on me to support you and Alden as a loveteam and as invidual artist. I will be you last fan standing.
    Love you Meng and so proud that im a fan of your.

    Maine, I’m so happy & proud of you for telling the truth. Thank you so much for all the things that you’ve done to us. I been your secret fan since the start of your career. Simula pa lang alam ko na ang totoo. Sabi mo nga “WALANG PERSONALAN TRABAHO LANG”.
    Because of you I overcome my depression. Ikaw ang naging gamot sa akin kalungkutan. You’ve inspired lots of people since the beginning of your journey in show business.
    You help me to face the reality in life. Na harapin ang panibagong buhay sa kabila ng lahat ng problema at kalungkutan.
    This is my first time na may hinangaan akong artista at yung ay ang nag-iisang “NICOMAINE DEI CAPILLI MENDOZA “. Na nagbigay inspirasyon na harapin ko ang panibagong buhay na dapat kong tahakin.
    Thanking God for all the joy that your giving to us everyday of your life. Sa pagiging simple at makatao mo sa harap at likod man ng kamera. Marami kang taong napapasaya.

    Hello Meng,
    Isa lang ako sa milyon niyong fans ni Alden. Also, one of the thousands readers and commentators of your blogs. I don’t why I’m feeling better after reading your open letter. One of my ALDUB friends texted me and talked to her via phone telling me she’s badly hurt about your blog. Since I was so busy lately and barely I went online, I was surprised about your revelation….surprised about your boldness. And it’s funny though, my feeling and adoration to both of you (with Alden) never changed. My only wish for you and Alden is to be GENUINELY HAPPY. Weird, but everytime I find you both (with Alden) happy, I am very very happy as well. So what if you’re both are currently just friends? It’s not yet the end of the journey right?
    Yet, mag-iba man kayong dalawa ng path someday, it won’t change the FACT that ALDUB, ALDEN RICHARDS AND MAINE “Yaya Dub” MENDOZA, SAVED MY LIFE.
    I WILL FOREVER BE GRATEFUL TO BOTH OF YOU.
    And as long as I exist, I will continue to adore you both.
    Praying for your (You and Alden’s) HAPPINESS. 😊

    You’d be surprised on how much our love or should i say.. my love is greater than all these brouhaha. I am sorry to disappoint you my dear but your open letter did not lessen my admiration instead it validated that indeed you are that girl who deserves all the blessings, adulation and love. Thank you very much for your honesty. Your authenticity and bravery are laudable. I wish there’s a way i can hug you but i guess i will hug you through prayers. I will never forget the many times you made me happy and forget my sickness wayback 2015. Marami kaming nagmamahal sayo Maine. I don’t think sampu lang kami after this open letter. Yung mawala after this, yun ang mga di totoong fans. Sarili lang nila iniisip nila. I am not even a member of any fans club but i am here loving and sticking with you.

    “I got myself, I will catch myself, and I will pick myself up”
    No Maine, we got you, we will catch you and we will not let you pick up yourself.
    You are well loved renaissance woman.
    Take a breather.

    Hi Maine,
    I felt sad after reading your letter, i really thought that you and Alden is a couple. In my 59 years of existence, sa inyo lang ako humanga ng ganito ka extreme. We know we are just your fans, we cannot dictate you and Alden. I am just praying that both you and Alden will find true happiness in the future (still hoping and praying that friends now, and be real couple someday). A silent fan is still here for you and Alden and will just watch and observe what/where tomorrow will bring to you both. Continue the friendship and will always be praying for you both.#ALDUB

    for speaking out what is really in ur heart u have my Love and respect Meng. Bata ka sana ma hug kita na napakahigpit just to assure that things will be fine. There is wisdom in what u said. This is not born dahil bugso ng damdamin kungdi pinagiisipan ng matagaltagal. Maybe u wanted to do this even before but couldnt do lest u hurt so many people. Hours before u wrote this letter i tweeted about how this fandom has become a blessing and a curse with people trying to bring u up or down that can take its toll on u both. and then this letter came out that validated my observation. Frankly i shed tears knowing the hurt is so real but relieved that u have opened what is really in heart. Yes there would be people who would judge u turn their backs on u coz their expectations are not met let them go. Remember there are those who love u unconditionally who see the real u behind the glitz and glamor of tinseltown they will stay with u kasama ako doon to support u whatever endeavor u want to do. Right fr d start i was a huge supporter of the real Nicomaine Dei Capili Mendoza. Tara watch tayo Coldplay! Kidding aside. Keep that huge smile always. Keep the faith.

    Menggay,

    Marami na nagsalita sa ‘pandora box’ na iyong sinimulan. Nagpapatunay lang ang experience pa rin ang best teacher khit matalino ka siguro di mo na pagtanto ang magiging resulta nito. “Kalayaan” ba sinisigaw mo? Saan? Kanino mo isinisigaw eto? Sigurado ka Adn 2015 grp may gagawan nito? Minsan kasi mas maingay pa ang nanggugulo lang kaysa s mga nag susupport sa inyo. Kaakibat ng grupo ay pinanganak ang mga nanggugulo lang. Di mo ba napansin marami pa rin ng like sa maharot mong picture kaysa sa bumatikos syo. Ako khit hate na hate ko ang classmate mo ay ini like ko yun. Sabi ko cge lang i enjoy mo lang sa isip ko. At it really takes two to tango, kung nagagalit ako kay jake sa insensitive na ginawa nya ay dapat nagalit din ako sayo. Pero di ako nagalit dahil lang larawan na yon na halatang nasobrahan lang kayo ng kasiyahan. Sabi nga.. “DONT LOOK ON TO THE WINE WHEN IT IS RED”. Alam ko madaming magagalit sa akin eto pero pagkakaiba lang sa akin Meng alam ko sinasabi ko. Dapat mo malaman din at dapat mo rin maramdaman ang sakit. Nagagalit ako sa ginawa mo at di sayo bakit marahil nasa puso ko na ang mahalin kayo ni Alden. At ano ang resulta? pati ang iba tahimik lang pero nadamay lalo na ang mga may karamdaman at mga matatanda at mga may depression.

    Tama ka kung feel mo nasa kahon ka at di mo maipakita ang totoong ikaw na di ka nahuhusgahan. Marahil ang iba ay di rin mapigilan ang mga sarili nila sa isang paniniwala na ganito ka at ganun ka. Akala nila manika ka. Akala nila santa ka. Akala nila perfecto ka. Saan ka nasaktan? Na isip mo rin ba bakit kami nasasaktan? Totoo ba ang naisip mo rin si RJ? Nai consider mo ba sya ng totoo ng ginawa mo ang Open Letter mo? Kanya kanya tayong lebel ng kaisipan, damdamin at higit sa lahat MORALIDAD. Walang obsolute freedom. Napapalooban pa rin tayo ng batayan. Kalayaan na ano? Kanino ka nasaktan? Sana naisip nyo magkaIBIGan kung tama ba ang gagawin ko bago nyo inilabas ang mga iyon na nagbunsod sa yo ng sukdulan. Alam ko matagal na kayo mag kaibigan lang ni Alden bagay na di matanggap ng karamihan kung bakit “KAIBIGAN LANG” privacy na ninyo yun. Kung di kayo nagpa-asa at di nyo sinama pa ang magulang nyo ay di sana mas masasaktan ang mga taong binuo na sa isip nila na “No Label nyo” ay para ipagtakpan lang ang privacy nyo na naniniwala sila meron. In every action, there’s corresponding reward and punishment. At akala mo magbabago ang showbiz dahil pumasok ka. Well hindi Iha! At yes I agree with you that you dont need to be like them and agree with their corrupt and pretendious system of showbiz. From the time of your birthday last March 2017, sa mga reactions mo na too obvious, mga ninja moves nyo ni Sef na kahit ba another kaIBIGan mo lang, ni Jake at others na gustong lumapit sa yo pero di makalapit ng malaya dahil sa paniniwala nila na invading of property dahil sa paniniwala na kayo ni Alden. At nagiging masagwa di ba? Ganun din si Alden at mga dapat makaka trabaho nya ay nababatikos. Di kita masisi pero fans lang ba dapat sisihin. Akala ko after Maldives nakapagpasya na ka at nakapag-isipan mo na ng maigi. Yun pala hinhintay mo lang mapuno ka. Oo Meng umasa ako after Maldives na u still choose Alden/ Rj. Sana lang puros Sana lang. Ngunit totoong sana lang nag usap kayo ni Alden at di mo inilagay sa alanganin ang inyong samahan. Sna lang nakipag usap ka sa mga sumasakop sa yo. At di pa dalos dalos lang. Mas masakit pa nakiki ayon ka na may kasal na magaganap. At alam mo ang mga totoong nagmamahal sa inyo di kayo binibatawan kahit nasasaktan.

    Meng, ano man nangyari sa inyo ng biglaan noong July 2015 is God’s Destiny sa inyo ng Dios. Ang inyong mga kaluluwa at puso ay pinag isa na ng Dios bago pa man kayo nagkita. Minsan di nga kailangan dumaan sa tradisyong ligawan para malaman mo sino ang ka Destiny mo. Wag nyo dayain ang mga mata at damdamin nyo. Minsan di nga ninyo maintindihan eto. At hindi sa emosyon nakakakilig at nakaka excite ang totoong pag-ibig kundi ang pagkakaroon ng commitment. Isang steady emotion & commitment. At higit sa lahat may holiness. Well palagay ko tulad mo nailabas ko na nasa loob ko.

    Meng, take a fresh air. Magbaskasyon ka ng maaga. Take a solitude and quiet time with the Lord.

    Meng, pinaglalaban kayo ng totoong ADN. Isang lang hiling ko, ingatan nyo ang pag kakaibigan nyo ni Alden at ang Love team nyo.

    Meng, keep ur love team & fight for it. Sa personal love life mo na nararamdaman ko gusto mo na makamit gaya ng sinabi mo sa book mo. Manuri ka ng maigi. Pray for his guidance. Have someone with same signifant values of faith and morality not unless otherwise.

    Well Let time heals all wounds. Let love reigns.

      I like the sincerity of your comment..tagos as puso…hindi mapanira at makatutuhanan…sana pakinggan ka…parang isang ina na nagsesermon sa isang anak…alam ko marami ang magsasabing pam babash ito..pero alam ko kung saan ka nanggagaling…isang tanong…siya ba talaga nasa larawan? Para as akin walang kaharutan ang larawan maliban sa time stamp na 6am…ang pagiging artista ay napakalaking responsabilidad…isang trabaho na pwedeng masabi na hindi kabilang ang kalayaan…kaya siguro napakalaki ng sahod nila…at kahit gaano ka laki nito hindi matutumbasan ng salapi ang pagkawala ng kalayaan at kasabay at kaakibat ng pagkawala ng kalayaan ang kalungkutan..pero kahanga-hanga din ang pagiging matapang ng batang ito na siyang hinangaan ng nakararami. Dalawang klase ang katapangan…pagsasabi ng katotohanan at pagpili sa sarili para sa pansariling kaligayahan…pangalawa ay ang pagpaparaya at pag una sa panganga ilangan ng nakakarami. In my opinion, either way is both commendable in itself. But placed in a place of great responsibility too young and too soon…my heart goes out for this wonderful being…Take your time Maine!!! Think really hard before you come back…make sure that this time you made the right choice…Remember Maine if and when you choose to come back be warned that freedom is probably not one of your greatest option!!!

      Bakit gusto ko itong comment mo? Siguro dahil yan din ang opinion ko at naramdaman ko for the past 2 years. I am a cancer patient and I can relate to those who said that their tandem is better than chemotherapy. After reading that open letter I was so depressed that I got sick for three weeks. So being a public figure is indeed a great responsibility. I don’t think you deserve to be in showbiz if you want freedom because you are seen by the public.

    Hi maine!

    As an old dad, I once had a chance to follow your initial journey in show business but honestly, shied off because of work and other commitments. Because of your magnetic personality, it seems like life can be better off always watching you and your “love team” with Alden. You have reach the place where other artists dreamed of and have overrun them. You have lots of “suddenly/s” in your life as an artist. We just find it amazing that these are happening to you.

    As for your open letter. I could not agree more. The only thing I can say it, the fans should initially know where their boundary starts and ends. Although, you owe your success to them, they do not own you or any other artists. No one holds your destiny but You. But in order for that destiny to become a fulfilling one in the end, one should be dependent on the guidance and grace of the Lord. Because He knows what’s best for us.

    At a young age, having 3 young sons and daughter ourselves, I understand that you are still searching. The only fatherly advice I give our children is to find God and His will. Because if you do, He’ll direct your path to the destiny where you will enjoy life like never before. It is not easy. It is a process.

    Maybe one day, you can write something about this experience you had as a artist. I t may serve as a guide or wisdom to those who will desire to go through the same venture you had.

    For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:11-13

    Have all the time that you need and when you are finally ready to face everything again, know that we are all waiting for you open hand.
    After all these, you can say that you are stronger and better. 😊😊😊

    Thank you for sharing with us some lessons on truly loving people because it is with respect, trust and humility. I have never followed a Filipino love team like you and Alden before. I believe I was right in my choice. You two are worthy of our unconditional love. Please believe that you have earned all the love and respect of this fandom. The others who chose to be insolent and abrasive have their own problems to deal with and that goes beyond you and Alden. Your pure desire to always make other people happy is enough reason for us to give you the same joy and respect. We will never get tired of loving you and Alden.

    Know this my dearest that I will be praying for you earnestly. Maybe this is.also the time for you to seek His face and.know what He is telling you to do. The Bible says in Mark 8:36 What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his own soul. Time to yes YOURSELF first, to reassess everything in your life. Seek Him the real source of joy. Find Him at this very hour where you feel that emptiness that only He can fill.
    Still believing the best is yet to come for both you and RJ. Whatever has transpired, He will mend and direct to the right path. Hold on dear. Marami pa rin kaming nagmamahal sayo. Felt your pain and as a Mom, I just want to hug you and comfort you. I am here fasting and praying for.you and RJ. God bless you hija. Mahal na mahal ko kayo as if you’re my very own. Wag bibitiw, tiwala lang kay Lord. Love you!

    Hi Meng, sorry if we made you feel that way. There are fans that because of too much love, they become overprotective and manipulative. Thank you for being honest with us. You are really selfless. You still think of us. Yes, you deserve to be happy and that’s what i want you to be eversince. Your happiness is my happiness too. Seeing you happy made me the happiest so do whatever it is that will make you happy. I promise to support you thru thick and thin, no matter what happens. You are always included in my prayers that God will give the desires of your heart and to keep you happy at all times. I love you forever! 😘❤️

    Hi Maine,
    Atta girl, I love your letter to your fans. It’s about time you say something. Some are too emotionally involved to the point where they cannot handle disappointment. There is nothing wrong with “we are friends” and I really, really admire your honesty. Nobody, nobody esp the fans, has the right to dictate who you want to love or go out with. After all it is your life and not theirs. You also mentioned about the bashing, bullying (my word) and nasty words directed to your co – workers (kawawa sa lahat si Alden), friends esp family. Pasensiya ka na lumaki ulo ng mga fans, naging dictador and spoiled brats. I had to stay away from Social Media for a month when they started bullying Ms. Doctolero. It was very tactless and unprofessional. Anyways, wish you more luck and I hope and pray this time, when you come back you will find the happiness you so, so deserve. Who knows Prince Charming will be waiting for you. ILove you Maine and really miss you my happy pill.

    Hi Nicomaine,
    For an Aldub tard and Maichard shipper, this letter has been heartbreaking. I separate Aldub from Maichard even if your show EB, tries to blur the reel and real.
    After Tamang Panahon, there should have been a serious effort from both your and Alden’s managements to sit down and clarify, have a roadmap for the ALDUB loveteam, separate from your personal lives as Maine and RFJ.
    Kalyerserye and even Juan for All still tried to blur the reel and real. EB was cashing in even your personal lives. And yet, there was negligible ALDUB projects outside of EB. Even EB continued with the split screen, in opposition to what fans clamored.
    Showbiz is still business. Business principles should be studied and implemented for every product, service, brand.
    Aldub is a brand. Aldub branding, its strategic plan, brand positioning should govern or guide your public selves/ public lives. As a brand, Aldub should be consistent in public. You wouldn’t have had a misgiving if these were clear to both of you (and Alden).
    If brand positioning was that you and Alden are a loveteam who are friends, then this should have been followed. No hugging/kissing outside of shows. Why were you NOT going out in public, or just seldom went out together? Was this part of the scheme to maintain the mystery? Or was this because you were, as you said, just friends who don’t have fun together outside of shows.
    If there was a strategic plan for ALDUB, your projects together would have been enough to stir the Aldubnation and the broader public.
    But when you hinted that Aldub was “organic” and real; what you see is what you get, your letter blew up in the faces of fans who thought deceived by all your “pakilig” actions.
    Indeed, there was no serious evaluation of how the Aldub brand was being received, and where it should go.
    Can the Aldub brand be saved? Or are you already giving up on this brand that once made millions happy?
    When you said that what makes your life meaningful is to make people happy, then Aldub could be the platform of making people happy (with a nobler purpose). Aldub can help change the world by taking up projects that promote social awareness and social change.
    But these are all up to you. As said, “failure is the mother of success”; “a fall in the pit is a gain in one’s wit”.
    You and Alden together, and with or without your managements can still save the Aldub brand and bring it to greater heights, if you will.
    ALDUB PA RIN!

    Honestly Ate Maine, nasaktan ako for you. Even ako affected ako sa mga bashers mo and I cannot imagine myself in your position. Alam ko nasasakal ka na sa ibang fans mo. Just stay strong. Maraming lumalabas na mga balita tungkol sa inyo ni kuya Alden and as expected nadadamay na ni Kuya Jake. Hindi po ako maniniwala sa sasabihin ng iba. Sayo ako maniniwala kasi ikaw ang mas nakakaalam. Kahit kaunti nalang kami kasi some of your fans sumusuko na. Pero kami hindi pa. #StayStrongKami. Hindi ka namin papabayaan. I love You po and I Badly Miss you * kiss kita sa cheeks *

    How can we not stay when you’re that person who can really be honest with what you feel? 🙂
    Never akong nag fangirl talaga, Maine. But what you have is something so pure that I got hooked. Piling pili lang kasi talaga sa showbiz ang mafefeel mo na totoo sa sarili AND sa iba. You’re one in a million and I am so proud of you.

    Salamat for being true to yourself and to your WORDS right from the start. For what it’s worth, I want you to know you have been practicing what you preach and that makes you very consistent in showing your values as a person. No filters. Thank you.

    You don’t know me pero grabe ha, sa tanang buhay ko ngayon lang ako bumili ng magazines ng artista! Hahaha! Kaloka ka po! 🙂

    I pray you read this so you would know na out of the millions who know you as “that girl”, you have one who you GENUINELY touched just by being you. It will be a long and winding road ahead my dearest Maine. Pero know YOU ARE #NEVERALONE in this journey.

    Pwede magshare ng very light? Naisip ko lang na with your penchant for writing and passion for making people happy, you could CREATE a lot of materials na pwedeng i-consume ng mga tao. Creating characters for a movie, short film or tele novela or web series dito sa blog mo na mala Nicholas Sparks ang background story! Ay naku! kayang kaya mo yun e! Jusko Maine! Mababaliw ako seeing or even just knowing you do that not because “ahh sinabi ko kasi yun e” but because I sincerely believe you are so CAPABLE and GOOD at it. Yung novel mo nga inaantay ko na!

    Haaay.. but above all, I pray that your plans align with what the Lord ultimately laid out for you. Kahit ano man ang plan mo, go for it! Andito lang ako (uhm, i don’t really have any involvement with fandoms).

    God bless you more my dear Maine. Take heart that all of these are gonna pass and are simply steps to get you closer to who the Lord wants you to be. Thy will be done.

    I will be cheering you on no matter what!

    With lots of love from Tondo,
    Carina

    Hi Maine ! Just subscribe to your blog . I have never been fan to any of the celebrities not until I saw you in Eat Bulaga , then all of a sudden I have been an avid silent follower With regards to your latest blog “the open letter to your fans” I am so proud of you speaking up in what you believe , few of the celebrities I know have that guts to do what you just did and that Girl is so so being true to yourself… ( I am also a Piscean so I know what you feel , we don’t want to pretend what is and what is not real) Do not be saddened or even think that you made a mistake of what you revealed , this will only be the next step of your LIFE as an adult and a celebrity. This is the time you will really know who your TRUE FRIENDS and SUPPORTERS are, they are ones who will understand, respect and LOVE you more. More Blessings will come your way.

    Many will be against you as you have said,but do not worry because they are just a few who does not know the meaning of being truthful to oneself and to others. Be strong always do what you do best and show them who the real truthful, honest, lovable NICOMAINE DEI MENDOZA is. My prayers are always with you and to your family. GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS.

    A silent fan of yours,

    The day you published this letter, I was dumbfounded after reading it. It was mixed emotions, I was hurt and brokenhearted. But more than the hurt that came with the “just friends” phrase, I was hurt because I can feel how much you are hurting. Naramdaman ko na parang nasakal ka na sa mundong ginagalawan mo. Naramdaman ko na gusto mo nang kumawala pero iniisip mo pa din ang mga taong napasaya mo.
    Nakakagalit. Nakakatampo. But if only people learn to empathize, and understand, they will see that it isn’t that easy for you too.
    Sure some people also said that it was all due to “bugso ng damdamin”, but that was pent up feelings that finally burst.
    You deserve the space you are having now. I hope it gives you time to reflect, retreat and refresh your perspectives. Let God heal what is broken and give you the peace of mind you are longing.
    I am hoping that by the time we watch you back on tv again, you are your usual self already, that girl who makes other people happy just by being herself.
    Please don’t forget that, aside from your family and friends, there are tons of people who love you without hesitation and expectation. And I’m one of them. Pasali ako sa sampu.😂💛

You are strong, it takes a lot of courage to speak your mind despite the possible consequences. Your real fans will still love and support you, let the fake ones run their mouth, they don’t and never will matter. You have a right to be happy and it doesn’t matter if other people think Ill of you for being yourself, what matters is that you are still happy with who you are. It is admirable that you are true to yourself, the best of luck to you in the future ms. Mendoza!

    unsolicited… nakapagisip isip ka na ba?… are you really sure na papasok ka ulit sa box na hindi ka na masaya ctto your open letter.. nabasa mo na ba ulit yun letter mo?

    pag pumasok ka ulit sa box ng showbiz at ng LT, malilimitahan ka na naman kasi siguro naman by now alam mo na ang dapat sa hindi sa oo.. di nyo na magagamit yun lahat ng ginawa nyo nuon eh totoo, kasi dahil sa open letter nabahiran na yun na mga pakilig lang ba yun kasi hindi ka naman sumaya.. magdedemand at magdedemand fans nyo ng projects eh kung yung dati salat na sa projects napuno ka na sa dikta etc, what more papasok ka na naman sa LT box. kaya mo na ba ipaliwanag yun open letter mo pag bumalik ka? kaya mo na ba ipaliwanag yun IGs ni Jake? kaya nyo ba talaga di na magfake o magfanservice sa LT fans nyo, i mean draw the line this time na LT lang talaga kayo so act as just LT on and off cam? by doing that, makikita kayo sa ibang tao at kahit ano pa sabihin ok lng kasi di naman kayo LT lang kayo..mapapanindigan na ba kaya wala offcam sightings kasi wala naman talaga kasi ikaw iba kasama mo be it jake or sino man, iba din kasama ni Alden be it another girl or what. kasi nuon inisip na magkasama kayo offcam until that IGs.
    ready ka na ba pag inask ka ng iba at for sure iaask pa rin sayo to open letter mo, handa ka na ba harapin? kasi handa na rin ba kayo na meron na lalo magdududa sa LT nyo na pakilig lang lahat ng gagawin nyo, handa ka na ba talaga ulit magpabox in sa showbiz? more so sa LT box, na matagal na pala di nagpapasaya sayo? pano nyo ibebenta ang LT if babalikan nyo pa eh ang hinihingi mo eh freedom to be with others at di ka pagisipan ng masama dahil kesyo nasa LT ka? pagisipan mo mabuti, kasi tingin ko another relapse from you na ganito eh di na makakatulong sayo o sa iba tao. technically as of now ctto sa open letter, di ka na masaya sa nangyari sa LT/showbiz box mo, are you sure you gonna go back in there? are you gonna stand with what you asked for freedom?as you said fame/money isnt gonna make you happy? or are you gonna apologized and go back in the box again and have your perks of fame/money again? if you do want perks, you have responsibilities.. are you willing to do more LT projects? are you? think it over. Jan 2018 too soon dont you think especially if you still dont know what you did, what you are doing and what will you do? pls think it over this time be box in or graceful exit? its not helping yourself to outburst like that twice, 3rd will be a disaster na. unsolicited. Godbless i hope you do think it over for real this time.

Parte ka ng bawat araw ko , pangtanggal ng monotony, ng pagod, ng lungkot,a very effective diversion sa lahat ng nega sa buhay ko. Tapos nawala ka bigla, di inaasahan. Feeling ko may nawalang parte sa akin. Sa di mapaliwanag na dahilan, malungkot ako kahit di pa kita nakikita in person, di nga ako member ng kahit anong org supporting you. Kulang na palagi araw ko. Sana magparamdam ka naman kahit konti para iyong hope na we can see you again, laugh at your antics, enjoy your acting and everything ay magsilbing liwanag sa malabong hinaharap. I’m not hoping that you’ll end up with alden ‘coz sa totoo lang ikaw lang talaga favorite ko.

Hold your head up high and stand strong for your beliefs, character and principles because you are an absolutely beautiful creation of God!

First of my Maichard heart is sad kasi nga from the very beginning from what ive seen in your actions and Alden’s action is enough evidence that you are both in a relationship or a couple only to know that you are just friends after all, ( wag kasi Assumera hahahah) I mean this is a normal reaction from a true blue Maichard fan and Im not ashame to share and admit it , my maochard heart exploded into pieces yung ibang pieces umabot na yata sa ibang galaxy at hindi pa bumalik hahaha. I have a slight tampo kasi from the very begining when you are being asked on what is the status of your relationship you gave us a very blurred/ vague answers, sana you both have admitted the real score rather than wait for the 25th hour and I dont really know the reason why you guys do not like to admit what kind of relationship you have, is it the management dictating you ?, is it personal preference from both of you ? I know that you are all that frank, straight forward and not pa showbiz kind of girl would not gave us the “what you see is what you get” kind of answers. Next time around if you decide to return in showbiz please be honest to us kasi we the fans love you and Alden for who you are, not because you are mag syota or you are sikat, but because you guys inspired us by the uniqueness and rawness that you possessed . But hey I know its not the end of the world , being friends is the best foundation of every relationship .
    Nadamay yung 99% na mga fans tulad namin na hindi naman nag misvalidate , nag misapprehend at hindi nag dictate sayo . Most of us here do not have fans club and yet we are silent in a our own small way supporting you and Alden all the TV shows, TS and concerts there and here (abroad) we are present and yet feeling namin hala tayo ba yan hindi naman ah, so meaning its either people close you, bashers, haters in twitter, are this people responsible of what you are feeling kasi unfair sa mga matitinong fans na tulad namin na mabasa na parang kami ang reason you were boxed, misvalidate and misapprehend, iilan ba sila compare sa amin na nag mamahal sa inyo ni Alden baka 1 percent lang ang mga yun .
    Do not allow people to put you in a box , dictate you or misvalidate and misapprehend you, they have no right to do so, but rather open up your channels to the right people who will give you a sound advise as you go through the chaotic life of showbiz , everybody wants a piece of you ganun e sikat ka e lols , but learn to embrace and accept the role that God has given you, try to get much help as you can kasi hindi ka nag iisa, God will send you messengers and angels that you least expected to help you go through it , but only if you allow it otherwise mag isa ka pa rin mag solve ng problem mo at susulat ng panibagong open letter . Real life problems and conflicts can not be fix without seeing the other person eye to eye and talk to them about the problems, open letters is good to get your voice heard by the but it does not solve problems, you have to get out your way and physically seek anybody that you think has done you wrong and tell them in their face in a civilize or polite manner of course .

    You are 22 years old there so much to learn about life, love, relationship and work , take every problems and pagsubok as a learning curve., it will develope your coping mechanisms in addressing real life problems . Seek your purpose in life stay focused in reaching your goals .

    1 Corinthians 13
    Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude . Its does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out . Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstances .
    Three things will last forever – faith, hope and love – and the greatest of these is LOVE .

    Your (and alden) Fan,

    Liza

Hindi kita hinate o ano kasi alam ko naman na mabuti ka at mabuti ang kalooban mo. Alam ko po na desire mo ang magpasaya ng mga tao at ng mga tao sa paligid mo pero nararamdaman mo sa paligid mo na parang gusto mo ng konting kalayaan na hindi maintindihan.

    Hi beloved Maine, I am not a fan to any celebrity but I admire some people in showbiz business. You are one of them. There may be a lot of people hate you but always remember that you are not alone. Alam ko marami pa ang naniniwala sa’yo. Hindi lang sa showbiz o sa mga tao umiikot ang mundo mo. Telling the truth is not bad. You don’t have to keep silent for the sake of other people. In times like this, malalaman mo kung sino ang mga taong totoo sa’yo. God has not created us to please people. He created us to please Him.

    Kung marami man ang galit sa’yo for being honest of what you really feel, para na din sila ang Pharisees who hated Jesus so much. Mas matindi pa kay Jesus kasi pinako Siya sa cross. Why am I sharing this to you? It’s because I want you to know na kung ano man ang mga pinagdaanan nating lahat, mas masaklap pa ang pinagdaanan Niya. 🙂 Kaya stand firm because God is our strength. “The joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10). This shall pass soon. No matter what will happen, always put God at the center of your life. Submit and surrender everything to our Lord and Savior. Do not believe the lies of the enemy. Never, never forget this…JESUS LOVES YOU SO MUCH! 😀 <3

    While you might feel frustrated over a very uncomfortable situation you’re being forced to deal with, Jesus is actually pursuing your long-term comfort through that very situation.

    It is in these seasons that Jesus’s promises to be with you always (Matthew 28:20) and to never forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).
    He wants to give you the true comfort of learning to fear only God, so he will give you the discomfort of facing your false fears.
    He wants to give you the true comfort of resting secure in the promises of God, so he will give you the discomfort of living with apparent uncertainty.
    “Jesus wants you to learn to trust in him in all things at all times.”

    Be strong Maine. Pray always. Jesus loves you!

    Merry CHRISTMAS and Happy New Year!

    Love,
    Sai

  142. I truly respect you and your desision. I am amazed by how you handle this and those and that kasi kapag sinabi mong ‘famous’ or ‘celebrity’ maling galaw mo lang ibabash ka na pagsasalitaan ka ng masasama and you? pinaglalaban mo yung karapatan mo maging malaya, maging masaya. ayan yung mahirap sa mga tao eh pinagmumuka nilang ikaw pa yung may utang na loob sa kanila kesyo wala ka dyan kung wala sila. shut up, people. tao lang din si maine gagawin nya yung gusto nya o anong makakapagpasaya sakanya. I love you, maine you are one of a kind.

Since your first exposure on the Philippine television you were the one who made us laugh and once again feeling inloved. Because you know that this industry really is unpredictable. I know that this would only be an obstacle for you not to give up, but for you to become a more genuine person. I hope that you can overcome this obstacle because I BELIEVE IN YOU. No one’s perfect, No one really does. I believe that you can. Don’t worry everything’s gonna be fine. We miss you already, I hope that we could give you the warmth that you need in this obstacle.

    You really are that “girl” I once asked that if “you’re that girl” and I am sure this girl would go a long way and you did…. After 2 years you’re still the same I can read aura of people and attitudes. So I believe GOD put where a “real person” must be to stand up for HIM to tell the people that GOD did all these to you and only GOD would be the sole reason why should you be allowed to stay on this business or not…..After all, you said you are not after power and fame because in GOD’s eyes you are talented in so many ways. I believe GOD predestined you to be there…. Hope you carry the torch in your heart to reveal the true GOD that is within US… You really are talented in so many ways that GOD only bestowed only to you even if you don’t knew that…… I will still continue to support you even this blog site of yours….. Hope you could visit my blog site too……myinnermostthoughtsinlyf.blogspot.com hope you could read my blogs too….enjoy reading…… 100% I am at your side not your back……..

    Hopefully magkatotoo. I am more of a youtube viewer not really a tv fanatic bit I do watch EB kasi siguro nakasanayan at bonding namin pamilya.

    I just want to express my admiration and I’m such a fan not just of Aldub but EB as well.

    I hear you Maine and I will be the 10th person mag susupport sayo ng 100% and will love you unconditionally. You deserve to be happy. It’s Priceless. Money can by all material things and fame in the world but not happiness. You’ve already done your part and alden as well for us to feel the KILIGs and Happiness from the start of KS till the end. Even in all your movies together. My Bebe Love and IYAM. Now it’s about time that we givback the happiness you deserved. I will continously praying to our Lord Almighty in the end You and RJ will be together to FOREVER. Indo believe in Miracle and God works in a mysterious ways. Ang theme song na tumatak sa puso nang ADN ang famous song of Bryan White “God gave me you”. I know GOD Gave you to RJ to be his “Angel. Who will guide him and love him unconditionally vice versa. GOD Gave RJ to you to love you the same way you will love him. God bind you together and NOBODY or NO ONE can break you apart. I do believe kayo pa rin sa huli. Marami pa rin tunay na humahanga at nagmamahal sayo Nicomaine Dei Capili Mendoza. Number 1 ako don sa list. Pati na rin kay RJ. JUST HOLD ON ADN… walang bibitiw. Walang mag lelet go… Kaptit lang tayo and I so believe in the power of PRAYERS. Memeber ako ng OFCALDUB LA california Chapter. I saw you and RJ attended our Grand Get together in Pasadena. I saw you Menggay. Napaka quite at very reserve. Kaya ka namin minahal dahil sa pagiging humble mo and a good person inside and out. Marami pa rin kaming susupport at magmamahal sayo na tagos hanggang Bone marrow. And I know ang malapit ng dumating ang Romeo ( Si RJ na kaya yon?) mo na magpapasaya sayo, baka na delay lang sa customs. But for now enjoy your life. 🤪🤗😜🤣 Take care Menggay and love you much!!! God bless you always🙏😇

    Comedy of Errors

    I’ve been here before am I losing my mind
    Look at me, tell me i’m crazy
    We’re in danger
    Follow me and you’ll see things are not what they seem
    Take my hand or don’t you trust me
    We are in danger and i’m the one to blame
    At the edge of man’s reason there exist designs to escape reality
    The tesseract calls to me
    Cosmic strings shall be mine to pull
    Failure met by failure
    Try again, try again
    Still she calls to me
    Can I hold you closer and drown in your dreams
    I promise fantasies can be more than words that we have buried alive
    The nightmare is real still I pray and beg for more
    I’m never closing my eyes
    Forever one with the night
    Hush sweet baby don’t say a word
    I’m ignoring destiny for reasons I can’t tell you
    We try to fool our minds
    How long do we wait for salvation
    Is it a sin to wonder
    Get off your knees

    Can you hear me, can you see me
    Can you hear me, can you see me
    Can you hear me, someone’s talking
    Can you see me, someone’s watching

    It was a dark and stormy night
    I’ve traveled near and far, raced with all the stars
    Now alone i’ll be, subtle tragedy
    If I had one more chance to just explore
    I would take your hand and do it all again

    What I understand from your letter is that you don’t want to fool people just to obtain stardom and fame. Who in the world can be so brave enough to do that when they are in the peak of their careers! And I think you just did the right thing! Being authentic is hard to achieve nowadays. You chose the road less traveled by. That’s very admirable!

    I can also see in the contents of your letter that you’ve reflected on it long enough to take the courage to put it into writing which means you meant every word of it.

    Thank you for popping the bubble for the misled fans soon enough before everything becomes damaging and irreversible.

    Hi, Maine! I don’t know if you will read this or even come across it.
    It’s the 28th of March 2018 and I don’t know what got in to me that made me want to read your open letter again. Maybe because I want my heart to feel again. Here I am, in front of my laptop trying to stop the tears from streaming down my face.
    Over the past years that I witnessed you onscreen, I know that you are a different kind of celebrity. To be honest, the first time I saw you on national TV, you didn’t catch my eye. After a few days of ignoring the so-called Yaya Dub, I earned a smack on the face when my sister was watching you on her phone. Maybe she’s not too bad after all. I searched your name on social media. Then, I came upon your blog. Your writings touched my heart, Maine. The way you expressed yourself caught my attention.
    You, Maine Mendoza, is the most genuine celebrity/artist I have witnessed. You are a PHENOMENON. I know that pessimists like us tend to forget to look at the positive side sometimes. But let me tell you something, you. are. loved. And you are much more than what the industry depicts you to be. We know that. You are kind, genuine, unique, and much more. No amount of adjectives could describe how good of a person you are.

    Take care of yourself, Maine. “Take care of your own happiness”.

    P.S. Marami kaming nagmamahal sa’yo. Naniniwala pa rin ako na sa fandom na ito, walang iwanan.

    Your love team got me through a lot of tough times. Thanks for that. I always say I won’t believe anyone unless it comes straight from the horse’s mouth – so this made me so damn sad. I think I was more in love of the possibility of you two – it was so addicting. As much as you want your freedom, I also want mine from this addiction – it’s taking awhile. I’m now letting go of this love team – the public possibility of you two and let fate take you wherever destiny wants … in private. Consequently, for my sanity (yes, it’s driving me nuts), I can’t stick around, be dismal and wait for fate. It’s your life after all. I’ll hope for good news but will be satisfied enough that you’re both following yours, separately or together. You both deserve joy. 🙂 God bless!

    At malaking pasasalamat ko Ate Maine dahil naging bahagi ka nang buhay ko pati nadin kay Kuya Alden.
