Here's the real reason why Brenda Mage ‘said goodbye’ to showbiz

Since announcing his departure from showbiz, Brenda Mage has been hounded by rumors that his decision was brought about by lack of projects, all of which he has firmly denied.

The former “Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10” housemate revealed the real reason why he chose to leave showbiz on Facebook Live on Tuesday, March 22.

“Actually hindi talaga ako nag-quit ng showbiz. Charot-charot lang ‘yun. Pumunta ako rito kasi nagpapagawa ako, nagpapa-renovate ako ng bahay. Kaya quit na din kasi wala naman na ako pero anytime, pwede naman,” he explained.

Brenda further detailed that he turned down the offer to be part of a project headlined by his fellow “PBB” celebrity housemates KD Estrada and Alexa Ilacad.

“Pero ang alam nila meron dapat akong March 25 to April 8 na lock-in taping with KDLex, pero siyempre nauna ko nang ipaayos ‘to dito, so hindi ako pwede,” he revealed. “At may mga offer din sa iba-ibang station. Hindi naman ako nagmamalaki na tinanggihan ko pero maraming nagsasabi na wala daw akong project after ng 'PBB.' Kung alam niyo lang. Ayaw ko na talaga ng lock-in.”

In another Facebook video, Brenda directly addressed netizens claiming that his “PBB” stint made it hard for him to secure succeeding projects.

He told viewers, “Hello-hello sa lahat ng mga bashers diyan. Oh my God, ang dami kong nababasa sa mga post ko na kaya ako umuwi ng probinsya at nag-quit sa showbiz because sa lahat ng mga pinakita kong kamalditahan sa loob ng Bahay ni Kuya at buti nga sa akin at natanggal ako sa showbiz kasi nga nahihirapan ako sa buhay ko dahil sinuka na ako ng showbiz.”

“Well, I have my friends here from Manila, nagbabakasyon kami dito. Kasi mas masaya ‘pag totoo yung mga kasama ko and with my family,” he countered the claims.

Now that Brenda has fulfilled his “last dream” of entering “PBB,” he can now focus on building a home and spending quality time with his family in the province.

“Alam niyo isang dekada na rin akong nag-ipon. Last ko na talaga ‘yung pagpasok sa ‘PBB.’ That was my last dream na natupad at ‘yun ‘yung sinasabi niyong sumira sa akin at sinira ko ‘yung sarili ko dun. Well, okay na ako. Fulfilled na ako. Nagpapatayo pala ako ng bahay para naman sa buhay ko,” he added.

Before ending the livestream, he once again addressed the people spreading false claims: “You don’t know anything about me. At sa lahat ng mga bashers, I know you’re happy, kasi happy ako.”

“Gusto kong i-post lahat ng mga nagme-message sa akin. Ang dami kong guestings, ang dami kong mga inayawan. Ayaw ko nang magsalita kasi kailangan pa yatang i-prove. Well, anyway, wala naman kayong alam. Pero anyway, thank you so much for all your words and I really appreciate everything. Sana happy kayo kasi happy ako,” he finally said.

On March 20, Brenda first made the announcement that he’s saying “goodbye” to showbiz and relocating to his hometown in Cagayan de Oro.

“Bye for now Manila. After 15 years of staying here since 2007. I was only 17 years old starting to pursue my dreams to become a celebrity haha. Makakauwi na ‘ko ng probinsya. Maybe not for good, pero matatagalan talaga. Nakapag-ipon na rin kahit papano time to focus for my family and future, naks hahaha. Goodbye showbiz muna mejo natupad na rin lahat ng pangarap ko sa showbiz industry,” he wrote in an Instagram post.
