“Kendra x Lilian. Lagi magkaaway sa Prima Donnas pero sa totoong buhay kabaliktaran. My friendship with @katrina_halili didn’t happen overnight, it was during one of our lock-in tapings that i got the chance to know the real her. Misunderstood, Suplada? No when you get to know her, the real her you’ll see the beauty of her soul. She went through so much in life, and she is a fighter. She is not perfect but she is kind hearted.”
Aside from this, Aiko expressed her admiration for Katrina, whom she commended for being a good mother.
“And what I admire about her is mabuti siyang ina sa kanyang anak na mahal ko rin si Katie. Kaya whatever mistakes or challenges na pinagdaanan niya wala tayo right to judge her, because she was generous enough to share her own story sa akin. And with a heavy heart malapit na akong matapos sa #primadonnas Sis @katrina_halili Thank you for the friendship! Thank you for your honesty! And above all salamat at binigyan mo ako ng pagkakataon maging sister mo. Love yah! And I will surely miss you.”
