MANILA – Tears flowed on “It’s Showtime” on Tuesday when the mother of Angelica Yap, better known as "Pastillas Girl," joined her on stage to talk about their relationship.
Yap previously told Vice Ganda that the reason she is looking for a new relationship is because she also longs for someone who would care for her.
As the eldest child, Yap said she is used to looking after her younger siblings since their parents are no longer together.
Already in tears when she went on stage, Yap’s mother said she feels guilty to hear those words from her daughter because she has nothing but love for her children.
“Bigla akong na-guilty na baka may pagkukulang ako na hindi ko naibigay. Lahat ginagawa ko para sa inyo. Lahat ng pangaral ginagawa ko sa kanya. Nung pumasok siya sa sorority, hindi ko matanggap. Hindi ko alam kung bakit siya pumasok doon. Nilipat pa namin siya sa school. Hindi ko alam kung dahil ba broken family kami,” she said.
Yap, however, was quick to assure her mom that she is not blaming her for anything.
“Sobrang na-appreciate ko lahat ng ginagawa ng nanay ko sa akin. Wala kang ginagawang masama. Matigas din kasi 'yung ulo ko. Hindi mo pwedeng isisi sa nanay mo 'yung mga maling nagawa mo kasi may sarili kang decision. Ang nanay, nandiyan para gabayan ka lang,” she said.
For his part, Vice Ganda reminded Yap that family will always be of utmost importance. He also urged Yap to spend more time with her mother.
Meanwhile, Yap’s mother admitted feeling hurt by all the negative comments hurled against her daughter.
“Hindi naman nila kilala ang anak ko. Ayaw ko na kung sinu-sinong tao lang ang lalait sa anak ko,” she said. “Sobra akong nasasaktan. Sana 'yung mga taong humuhusga sa anak ko, tignan muna nila ang sarili nila. Wala namang perpekto.”
Yap’s mother also said she is not "pimping" her daughter, contrary to what other people think.
“Ako nakasuporta lang ako sa kanya. Nasa kanya ang decision, kung ano ang pasya niya, doon lang din ako. Pero ako, 'yung sinasabi nila na binubugaw ko 'yung anak ko, hindi nila alam kung gaano ko kamahal 'yung anak ko... Hindi ko kayang gawin 'yun,” she said.
