KYLIE Verzosa and Maxine Medina have a raging controversial issue with each other, so it’s not surprising that they were immediately asked about this at the farewell presscon of “Los Bastardos” that ends this coming week. It’s said that during a heated confrontation scene, Kylie spat on Maxine and it’s not in the script. Both Kylie and Maxine are beauty queens. Kylie won the Miss International title in Japan in 2016. Maxine represented our country in the Miss Universe pageant in 2016.

Kylie is the first one to reply: “Okay na kami ni Maxine ngayon. Friends na kami. In my role as Dulce, contravida akong nabaliw at naging obsessed kay Jake Cuenca as Isagani who chose Maxine over me kaya binaril ko siya. Sa scene namin ni Maxine, sobrang heightened ang emotions ko kasi kababaril ko lang kay Jake, tapos nakaposas ako at hawak ng dalawang pulis. So nadala lang talaga ako ng eksena sa nagawa ko kay Maxine. Pero si Dulce ang gumawa nun, na malayo sa tunay na ako. Nag-sorry naman ako agad sa kanya. First teleserye ko ang ‘Los Bastardos’ at from bida, naging contravida ang character ko kaya nagkaroon ng malaking switch. Nahirapan ako but I considered it a big challenge. Hindi naman po maiiwasan 'yung may nangyayaring di mo inaasahan. May nasasaktan. Ako nga, ang dami ko ring pasa galing sa eksena.”

The rumor is she got jealous because Maxine had many kissing scenes with Jake who’s her real life BF. “No, marami rin naman kaming kissing scenes ni Jake, e. Hindi ako nagseselos kasi Jake doesn’t give me naman a reason to feel jealous, silang dalawa ni Maxine.”

What can Maxine say? “Maging lesson na lang sana ito na bago gawin ang isang eksena, pag-usapan muna para ma-avoid na may mangyaring hindi kanais-nais. Kami ni Ritz Azul, nagkaroon din kami ng sampalan sa isang episode ng ‘Ipaglaban Mo’, pero pinag-usapan muna namin bago namin ginawa. Pero 'yung sa amin ni Kylie, tapos na 'yun, nag-sorry na siya sa akin, nag-usap na kami, so okay na kami.”

“Inaamin ko naman na nagkulang ako, na before the scene, dapat nag-usap kami,” says Kylie. “Pero 'yung ginawa ko, nadala lang talaga ko sa eksena. Spur of the moment lang 'yun.”

Is it true, it took four days before she said sorry? “Ang alam ko, nag-sorry ako agad-agad and after the scene, nag-uusap na kami uli, nagbibiruan.”

She was just surprised that Maxine’s cousin, Dianne Medina, later wrote about it in her social media account so the issue got worse.  “Nagulat ako nang lumabas 'yung issue at lumaki. Naapektuhan pati ibang kasama namin sa ‘Los Bastardos’.  Sana kinonfront ako sa set ni Maxine if she was really feeling that bad, di ba? But the important thing is, okay na kami ngayon. My apology was accepted. Friends na kami ni Maxine noon pa kasi magka-batch kami sa Bb. Pilipinas, e.”

Will Maxine be willing to work with Kylie again? “I’m okay. Walang problema. Huwag na nating palakihin pa.”

One writer says: “Baka masama pa loob ni Kylie kasi sa batch nila, si Maxine ang pinadala sa Miss Universe at siya, sa Miss International lang,”

Another writer defends Kylie: “But si Kylie, she won the Miss International title. Si Maxine, nganga! And between them, mas magaling na aktres si Kylie kasi sa first movie pa lang niyang ‘Kasal’ kunsaan first girlfriend siya ni Paulo Avelino na inakit-akit si Derek Ramsay later, napakahusay na niya. At maski sa ‘Los Bastardos’ mismo, mas lutang ang galing ni Kylie sa role niya as a villain na kung anu-anong kabaliwan ang pinaggagagawa.”
