Marian Rivera finds a defender halfway across the globe

Because she’s a TV top-rater (Marimar and now Dyesebel), Marian Rivera has lately been the subject of muckraking and a smear campaign which, luckily, haven’t succeeded in pulling her down (woe to the evil minds behind those dirty tricks).

Marian may be pleasantly surprised to know that she has a defender halfway across the globe, somebody who knows the real Marian Rivera. Funfare’s Big Apple correspondent Edmund Silvestre (of The Filipino Reporter) chanced upon Marian’s “staunch defender” who declared with impunity:

“Don’t even think about messing up with Marian Rivera, she never gives up without a fight.”

He’s none other than Marian’s ex-boyfriend, now US Navy Airman Davoud Haghighy.

“Davoud said that in view of what appears to be a malicious campaign to discredit the Marimar and Dyesebel star who is now the undisputed prime time TV drama queen in the Philippines,” said Edmund in his exclusive report to Funfare.

“She’s kind-hearted, but she has a very strong personality that she can be feisty when needed to defend herself,” Davoud added. “Mabait siya kung mabait ka, pero mas mataray siya pag tinarayan mo siya at binastos. Maybe because she’s a Caviteña and has Spanish blood.”

According to Edmund, Davoud, who is based in Virginia, visited his family in New York City recently. Fourth in a brood of five, his father, Saifollah, is an Iranian native, and his mother, the former Evelyn Esguerra, is also a Caviteña.

In his interview with Edmund, Davoud expressed excitement about the prospect of meeting again Marian when he learned that his ex-girlfriend, recently voted the FHM Philippines’ sexiest star of 2008, is going to the New York-New Jersey area to perform at the Philippine Fiesta at Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, N.J. on Aug. 16 and 17. (Marian will be joined by her Dyesebel co-star Dingdong Dantes, and I Love Betty La Fea star Bea Alonzo.)

“He’s hoping to hang out with Marian even for awhile,” wrote Edmund. “He said Marian’s former friends in Cavite, who are now based in the US, are also looking forward to reuniting with her.

“I’m so happy for her and I’m so proud that I got to know her,” said Davoud, 23. “If it’s not too much, I hope to see her again and maybe talk over a cup of coffee. But, of course, di naman natin alam kung gusto pa rin niya kaming makita. Siyempre nagbabago ang lahat at superstar na siya, kumbaga unreachable star na siya. But I’m hoping.”

Davoud said he and Marian dated only for a couple of months while they were still in high school at St. Francis of Assisi College System in Cavite.

“She was in fourth year and I was in third year,” he said. “We were both too young then and she was popular even outside school. Then I migrated to the US and we lost contact. Even then, mukha na siyang manika and people would stare at her even in malls. She had a lot of admirers and suitors.”

Davoud said he was not surprised when Marian entered showbiz because she was already into commercial and ramp modeling then.

“What I did not expect is the level of fame she’s in now,” he said. “Hindi ko talaga akalain na sisikat siya nang ganun. She’s so huge now.”

Davoud was already with the US Navy the first time she saw Marian on TV.

“I just can’t take my eyes off of the TV set,” Edmund quoted him as saying, said, laughing. “I was so enamored. She deserves it.”

When Edmund asked Davoud what he’ll tell Marian if and when they meet again, he replied in jest: “Bumalik ka na sa akin. Joke! Seriously, I would just say hi, wish her luck and maybe get her e-mail address so we can communicate as friends. At siyempre, magpapa-picture ako sa kanya,” he said.
