PBB CE2 Housemate #13: Ethel Booba
Life has certainly thrown a lot of trials towards Ethel’s way at a very young age. Homeless and underprivileged, she served as the only parent of her siblings and their source of strength. She still remembers how they used to sleep on closed carinderias before and it awes her until now how they have survived those difficult times.
At the age of 20, she worked in Japan just to provide for her family. Her sacrifices werenâ€™t in vain though because after her stint there, she was able to build their own house. Then after that a window opened for Ethel to join showbusiness.
Being an instant hit since then, Ethelâ€™s rise to stardom cost her to answering left and right controversies. One of which was her infamous and owned-up sex video scandal, with her then basketball player boyfriend Alex Crisano that circulated around the net and mobile phones. A true pasaway, sheâ€™s remembered to have waged a word war against her own family on Philippine TV, defending her then boyfriend against certain allegations.
