Heaven Peralejo's personal life has definitely been the talk of the town these past few months. From her breakup with Kiko Estrada, to her admitting that she spent "more than P500,000" for an ex, the 22-year-old was definitely under some intense scrutiny from all the "Marites." ICYDK, the name Marites has become the unofficial name for ~*nosy*~ netizens.

What does Heaven think about all the Marites who comment on her personal life? According to the actress, she pays them absolutely no mind. In her recent guesting for Magandang Buhay, Regine Valesquez, one of the hosts, asked her: "Speaking of nama-Marites, ilang beses kang nabiktima talaga. Bakit sa tingin mo and ano narararamdaman mo every time may sinasabi sila na parang... hindi naman yun 'yon, pero bakit ako chinichismis sa ganun."

"Alam niyo, kahit sa mga Marites po na iyan, ang dami ko pong natutunan... sa mga rotations at everything. Natuto po ako ng science kaya okay na rin po," the actress quipped, referring to the time netizens corrected her on her "22 rotations" Instagram caption for her birthday post.


She said that as long as know she knows for herself that she isn't stepping on anyone, she doesn't mind at all what all the Marites may say. "Pero, ang alam ko lang po ay mabilis lang ang buhay, might as well enjoy it. At the same time wala kang tinatapakang tao at masaya ang pamilya mo, masaya ka. Wala kang [naaagrabyado]. Go, enjoy!"
