    In Phoilippine entertainment, you can never spell beautiful and successful correctly without these letters M-A-R-I-A-N R-I-V-E-R-A. She's unique, she's one in a million. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to PRIMETIME QUEEN MARIAN RIVERA.

    she's lovely, funny, witty and true to herself. got to pretensions whatsoever. often misunderstood just because she speaks her mind.

    happy birthday Marian!

    Marian is simply just Marian, walang pretentions, walang arte, pero malambing at mapagkumbaba - my prayer for her eh ang makatagpo niya ang lalaking nababagay sa kanyang natural na pag-uugali (not that I have anything against DD - siyempre lalo pa't kita ko naman na mahal siya ni Yan, basta ang alam ko Marian is simply an ideal woman any deserving man must marry, kung di sila ni Dingdong ang magkatuluyan, di kawalan ni Marian....

    i still ont like her. d excuse ung pagiging prangka or honest sa kabastusan o kawalan ng modo o pagiging suspetyoso sa kapwa. at saka, last i heard, bumababa na ang rating ng "Amaya" kaya nagda-damage control ang GMA. Kya scraping the bottom of the pot na sila ng mga 'cute" articles like these.

    MARIAN is simply natural and sincere. A true and honest person, domesticated, a wife material, love children so much, a devoted daughter, apo, and girlfriend, fun loving, friendly, and an ideal girlfriend.

    ligtas na matugunan .. asa ka magtagumpay sa iyong karera at ang iyong buhay .. laging indahkan mukha na may isang ngiti at sa sarili umaaliw pagpapalagayang-loob ay maaaring magbigay ng isang mahalagang kahulugan sa iyong araw-araw na buhay .. kahit na kami ay iba't-ibang lahi ko nadama napakasaya kung kami ay nakalaan para maging isang kaibigan o mga kaibigan .. marahil ito ay imposible ngunit hindi bababa sa maaari kong maging isang tagahanga ng mga tauhan ay lubos na mabuti para sa akin ..
