Article excerpt

MANILA, Philippines - Kapuso actress Marian Rivera is back to the grind after experiencing severe headache while taping for her show "Temptation of Wife" last week. Marian has resumed taping two days after she sought medical advice. She appeared on the set of her soap wearing a neck brace. "Siguro hindi rin maiiwasan 'yon dahil sa sobrang dami talaga ng ginagawa ko. Pero 'yun nga ang sinasabi na ang importante ay okay na ako at back to work [na ako]," Marian explained during her short appearance for a men's magazine event aired on "H.O.T TV," Feb. 3. Although she wasn't feeling well during the taping, Marian insisted that she finished all her scenes. "Hindi ko talaga kayang hindi magtrabaho kaya pinipilit ko talaga ang sarili ko na kailangang magtrabaho talaga ako," she said. With her frail body "failing" her, she noted that she felt tremendous pain in the head because "siguro nga sa sobrang dami ng trabaho ko at kulang ako sa tulog. Tapos medyo sumakit 'yung ulo ko na talagang hindi ko na kaya. Pumunta na ako sa hospital at tapos nagpa-check na ako." She added, "Kahit ako din ay hindi ako makapaniwala sa sarili ko na sa haba ng panahon ng pag-aartista ko ay never talaga akong nagkasakit. This time talaga ay bumigay ang katawan ko." Good thing that "nakaya ko siya at bumalik na uli ako sa trabaho." Marian's condition alarms Tweeps On Jan. 28, Marian's manager Popoy Caritativo informed her fans on Twitter that his ward was wheeled off to a hospital but clarified that she wasn't confined. "Sa mga fans ni Marian: hindi po sya naconfine sa hospital. Nagpatingin lang sya dahil sa sobrang sakit ng kanyang ulo kaninang umaga... The doctor advised her to rest for a few days kaya pinauwi na muna sya mula sa taping ng TOW upang makapagpahinga. Salamat po," Popoy tweeted. Two days after, on Jan. 30, Popoy again informed Marian's fans that she's gone back to taping her GMA soap. "Upon her own insistence, Marian will resume taping for TOW today. Ayaw na daw nyang magpahinga. Salamat sa lahat ng concerned messages," he said. Rafael Rosell, Marian's leading man on "Temptation of Wife," recalled the day he saw the actress grimacing in pain. "Sa kalagitnaan ng eksena na parang showdown ni Marcel at Nigel, sa sobrang sakit na [ay] umiyak siya," Rafael recounted. …
