Annabelle Rama Tells Esther Lahbati: Huwag Mo Ako Hamunin, Hindi Ako Natatakot Sayo!Annabelle Rama cannot understand why there was an issue with Esther Lahbati, Sarah's mom, about the way she was treated during Baby Zion's birthday/baptism party.
There were many people there, so Annabelle had to go to each table and talk to the guests. She had no responsibility to usher Esther and treat her like a guest because she is a part of the family.
"Dapat, siya, matuto siyang maging ano... mag-party na maging sosyal ka rin na mag-ikot ka rin sa mga lamesa at magpakilala na, ‘I’m the mother of Sarah.’ Dapat ganun, e, kasi family siya, e."
What Esther wanted is for Sarah to introduce her to their guests, which included Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada, Vice President Jejomar Binay and Batangas Governor Vilma Santos-Recto.
Annabella did not understand why Esther was like that because they were all enjoying the party. Sarah couldn't very well pull her mother and introduce her to the guests because she was carrying Baby Zion most of the time.
She saw Esther during the party, and Annabelle said she was also having her pictures taken and she looked like she enjoyed it.
Regarding the takeout issue wherein Annabelle told Esther to take home some leftover food, Annabelle explained that she asked even their other guests to take out some food.
Usually, when she goes to a party, she always has plastic containers with her because she likes taking out roasted pork. All their guests were happy that Annabelle is willing to let them take home some food.
Now, during the party, she saw Esther and told her the same thing. She told her that the chicken tastes good from the catering. Esther did not reply.
Here's the video:
"Hindi ko alam na masama na pala ang loob niya. Sabi ko, ‘Ba't siya magagalit, e, normal naman sa ating mga Pilipino ganun, na mag-takeout naman talaga kung may matira, ‘di ba?"
She also didn't think Esther was offended because she even went to Richard's house after the party.
They were about to tape for their reality show, Annabelle said, adding that she didn't notice Esther was offended. She even ate with them because Ruffa ordered food since there were a lot of people in the house.
Esther has two guests with her, both from Switzerland. "Wala kaming naramdaman buong pamilya na may galit siya sa amin. So, nagulat kami nung the next day, Monday, imbes ma-headline yung apo niya, siya nagpa-headline."
Annabelle said maybe Esther just wanted the publicity. "Bayaan mo na siya, nakatikim na siya ng headline, nakatikim na siya ng frontpage, nakatikim na siya ng mga ano sa mga tao."
She just felt bad that Esther has to use Zion to be publicized. Annabelle thinks Esther just cannot accept that Sarah is with Richard now.
She said she already accepted that Richard is with Sarah now, so Esther has to accept that too. "Tigilan mo na 'yang arte-arte mo, Esther. Ako ay naiinis na sa ‘yo. Huwag mo ako hamunin, hindi ako natatakot sa 'yo!"
"Tumigil ka na, tama na ‘yan! Sobra ka na, wala naman kasalanan pamilya namin, tinitira mo kami."
Esther should have just appreciated what she has now. She didn't even contribute anything in Zion's party, Annabelle said.
She also asked Esther to stop posting on Instagram already, especially about the way she took care of Baby Zion. She said if she really loves her grandson, then Esther should have not minded that she's taking care of Baby Zion.
Esther is always blaming Sarah for being pregnant. Until now, Esther would always ask Sarah why she had to be pregnant. The actress would call Annabelle in the middle of the night and tell her about her mother.
"Sabi ko, ‘Day, sabihin mo sa nanay mo, tanggapin na niyang wala ka na sa kanya. Ba't 'di niya matanggap yun? Ako, natanggap ko nga, si Richard wala sa akin, nasa iyo.’"
Since Annabelle loves Zion, she already forgot what happened between Sarah and Richard.
Esther stays with Richard and Sarah once a week. Annabelle said nobody's stopping her from spending time with her grandson. She also said Baby Zion's not that close with Esther because Annabelle was the one he usually sees.
She takes care of him the way she took care of her children before.
What is her message to Esther? "Hindi naman ako nakipag-away sa 'yo, e. At ang pamilya ko, tahimik, wala kaming gulo."
On their text exchanges, Esther said she wanted Annabelle to apologize, so she would stop her posts on social media. Annabelle said she won't apologize because she did nothing against Esther.
"Minahal ko anak mo, minahal ko apo mo, inalagaan ko silang dalawa. Anong sorry ang gusto mong malaman sa akin? Wala. Kaya huwag ka nang maghintay ng sorry, wala kang maririnig sa bunganga ko na magso-sorry ako sa ‘yo na wala akong ginagawa."
