Barbie Imperial recently revealed why she chose to keep her COVID-19 test results hidden from the public.
The 22-year old actress is among the cast of Bagong Umaga who contracted the deadly disease.
The other cast members were Heaven Peralejo, Sunshine Cruz, Nikki Valdez, Tony Labrusca, and Keempee de Leon.
While Heaven, Sunshine, and Nikki chronicled their battle with the disease, and their eventual recovery, on social media, Barbie opted to keep silent about it.
“I also tested positive for COVID pero I chose not to post it na lang kasi parating throwback yung pino-post ko na mga photos or videos sa story ko. Baka malito yung mga tao na nakasama ko kung kelan ba talaga yun and baka isipin nila na kasama ko sila nung day na yun eh hindi naman talaga,” Barbie explained.
She also said that her posts on Instagram are not real time, which means if she posts about her bout with COVID, people might think she has not recovered yet.
“Wala naman akong balak kasi parang ako, every time I post on my Instagram hindi siya real time. After ng lock in, umuwi na lang ako. Pinili ko na lang na huwag na lang mag-post since wala naman akong naka-contact na ibang tao. Pamilya ko lang,” the actress said.
Barbara Concina Imperial is a Filipina actress and model from Daraga, Albay. She was born on August 1, 1998 to a broken family and used to live with her brother and mother along the railway tracks of the Philippine National Railway in Daraga, Albay. In 2015, the actress joined the Pinoy Big Brother: 737 and was dubbed as "The Doll along the Riles of Albay" because of her doll-like face. After getting a huge break in showbiz, the former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate from Albay promised to do her best so she could continue providing for her family financially.
Two months ago, Barbie and BF Diego Loyzaga revealed that they started out as good friends years ago. Their friendship stalled when Diego walked away from showbiz due to mental health issues. They were able to resume their friendship in 2020 amid the pandemic lockdown. During an out-of-town trip in 2020, they finally became an official couple.

The actress also has her share of bashers online. In February, Barbie hit back at a basher who stated that Barbie was “landi,” which was why she ended up with Diego Loyzaga. The basher said, “hindi kami kasing landi mo, kaya kahit mag COD kami.” Barbie did not let it pass though and replied to the basher saying, “galet na galet?” The actress did not stop there and added another question with a laughing emoji, “Wala ka jowa?”
