Year 2012 was ushered in by the news that Marian Rivera is the highest paid Kapuso female star. Rhian Ramos backed out of a new GMA-7 project titled “My Beloved” with Dingdong Dantes as co-lead star, and Marian took her place.
Before she nodded though, she demanded an increase in her talent fee. It was confirmed she’ll get three times her previous salary. This made Marian grin from ear to ear.
And with her Metro filmfest entry “Panday 2” with Bong Revilla reportedly lording it over at the tills as of the last week of December, expect Marian to become heady. Not a few people surmise that this might make Marian swell-headed. Hope she won’t or else her luck could backfire on her. Wanna bet?
Queried what Christmas gift did she give to Dingdong Dantes, her BF, Marian said with pride, “It’s a motorbike.” Dingdong, meanwhile, surprised Marian with a no fuddy-duddy present — a hi-tech oven complete with all the gadgets for baking. Marian giggled as she said that Dingdong enjoys eating whatever she bakes.
