    Whoa. I only know her through Glee, but I understand how big she is in her native country. That took a lot of courage.

    Wow. Much love to her!

    Her net worth is now something like $24mn

    That’s enough for a lifetime. The fans who leave her wont hurt her too much. Hopefully this new openness will gain her more fans than she loses.

    Thank you for coming out. Every person helps. I also appreciate your Tagalog spoken so succinctly and slowly. I was able to understand nearly a third of it. Good luck and stay true.
