ICYMI, Kathryn Bernardo is the latest celeb to read and react to the internet's ~*assumptions*~ about her. Among the statements she read out was about being a "Marites," which is internet slang for a person who loves to gossip. The comment read: "[Ikaw ang] source ng chismis, ng chika, ng tropa."

"In short, Marites?" Kath quipped. She was quick to shut this down, though, saying, "Hindi totoo, promise. Ako parati yung huli sa balita sa barkada. Ako yung, 'Ha? Sila pala? Oh my God, wala na sila? Tapos?'"

She continued: "'Nang tapos na yung mga nangyarinagkabalikan na, nag-break nadoon ko pa lang malalaman. So, hindi ako [ang] Marites ng barkada."

She clarified, however, that although she can't be a source of gossip, she loves hearing about all the latest ~developments~. "Pero... gusto ko nakiki-chika-chika. Pero hindi ako yung tao na tatanungan mo kung ano yung latest, ano yung chika. Girl, hindi talaga. Hindi mo 'yan makukuha sa akin," she shared.

We definitely wish ~nosy~ relatives and netizens can be more like Kathryn, LOL!

Aside from this frank revelation, we also learned from the video that Kath has a tendency to be hotheaded, especially when it's *that* time of the month. She's also an impulsive buyer, she once aspired to be a fashion designer, and she never had any ~beef~ with other celebrities. "Wala akong nakaaway pa. [Kasi] ang liit ng mundo ng show biz, so if may makaaway ka, oh my God, makakatrabaho at makakatrabaho mo yun, and it's gonna be hard for you. Magiging awkward lang, so might as well, 'wag ka na lang mang-away ng tao," she noted.
