ABS-CBN: Margarita (Starring Wendy Valdez)

PBB’s ‘Bad Girl’ plays a burlesque queen
By Ricky Lo
Saturday, July 21, 2007


Will, rather can, Wendy Valdez, known as the “Bad Girl” from the house of Big Brother — or, as her detractors loved to call her, Kontrabida ng Bayan — out-sexy Vilma Santos and/or Ina Raymundo in the “daring” role of a burlesque queen?

Knowing Wendy to be bold and, that’s it, daring, somebody who didn’t mince words inside Big Brother’s house and thereby incurred the ire of the Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) followers, I can say that the squatter girl from Malabon will, and can, do just that.

In her acting debut in the forthcoming ABS-CBN teleserye titled Margarita, Wendy plays a burlesque queen, a role calculated to enhance her image as a “bad” girl, a “title” Wendy takes with a grain of salt judging from the casual, insouciant way she acknowledged the jeers at the Big Dome during PBB’s grand elimination night where Wendy emerged as one of the Top 4 (grand-prize winner was Beatrice Saw). Thankfully, nobody made good their threat to throw tomatoes at her.

ABS-CBN guys make it clear that Margarita is not a TV remake of neither the bold-drama Burlesk Queen which starred Vilma Santos in the mid-’70s nor the 1990’s remake titled Burlesk Queen Ngayon with Ina Raymundo (she showed “all,” didn’t she?) as lead star.

“Margarita is not an adaptation,” assured ABS-CBN exec Deo Endrinal. “It’s an original story. Nagkataon lang na Wendy’s role is that of a burlesque queen.”

Scheduled to premiere next Monday night, July 30, as part of ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida block, Margarita also topbills Diether Ocampo and Bruce Quebral (also a PBB graduate) as Wendy’s leading men.

Other members of the cast are Elizabeth Oropeza as Wendy’s stepmother; Rio Locsin as Wendy’s mother; **** Israel as Wendy’s father; Joseph Bitangcol as Wendy’s brother; John Manalo as Wendy’s half-brother; Sharlene San Pedro as Wendy’s half-sister; and Keanna Reeves (another PBB graduate) as Wendy’s mentor and friend.

    The way I see it, she has been an ABS pet all along. When she guested in DOND, her intro video mentioned that she used to be one of the 26k girls. After which, she joined PDA. When she didn't make it, they put her in PBB. What a "discreet" way to introduce a new ABS "talent". :bop:

    Obviously, this show is rushed. Anything to flaunt their new "talent". Way to go ABS. :rolleyes:
