According to Nanay Cristy, Nora’s bashers said that the veteran actress is showing support for the presidential aspirant in exchange for money.
The showbiz columnist also said some detractors claimed that Nora is running out of money.
“Hindi po totoo 'yung ikinakalat ng iba na wala na raw po kasing pera si Nora Aunor, wala nang makain. Alam mo, ang sakit-sakit nila magsalita, ano? Wala na raw makain kaya raw pumayag na magsuot ng jacket ni BBM. Nakaawa, 'no, grabe 'no? Wala na raw makain si Nora Aunor, wala na raw kapera-pera.”
Nanay Cristy then shared what Nora’s friend allegedly told her about the harsh remarks.
“Galit na galit 'yung kaibigan niya na tumawag sa akin, 'Hoy, hindi nagugutom si Ate Guy. Tatlong beses pa siyang kumakain, at meron pa siyang midnight snack.'”
“Sabi niya, 'Baka hindi nila alam ang history. Balikan nila, pag-aralan nila ang history. Mula't mula pa, loyalista na ni Marcos si Nora Aunor. At kahit nabaligtad na ang kapangyarihan at ibinagsak na dahil sa rebolusyon nu'ng 1986, Nora Aunor, loyalista pa rin.”
Watch the said discussion at 52:36 mark of this video:
Nora Aunor started in showbiz in 1967. The actress, singer, producer, director, and manager had many awards under her name for her contributions in the entertainment realm.
Years ago, the Palace decided to drop Nora from being declared as National Artist - That is her second time to be bypassed. She also commented that not being included actually spared her from the emotional and psychological torment of mixed opinions and comments from people all around.
In November 2020, Nora received a Lifetime Achievement Award in Performing Arts in the 19th edition of Gawad Amerika. The said award was given to the veteran Filipina actress due to her timeless contribution to the field of film. In her acceptance speech via virtual ceremony, the Superstar thanked the said award-giving body and her supporters in America. Gawad Amerika is made up of the Filipino community in the United States that aims to recognize the contributions of personalities from various fields.
