Mariel Padilla says she got vitamin C drip, not gluta

TV host Mariel Padilla made a clarification about the senate incident where she was criticize for having an IV drip at the office of her husband Senator Robin Padilla.

Mariel said that it was not Glutathione but Vitamin C.

“Every week I have a Vitamin C drip. Inisip nyo po na glutathione ‘yung ating ginagawa… Vitamin C po iyon,” said Mariel.

“Never ko pong intention na mambastos o whatever. My intention was to show that no matter how busy you are, prinaprioritize pa rin natin ang paglalagay ng bitamina sa ‘ting katawan. I had no intention whatsoever to disrespect the Senate.” added Mariel.

“In my head I was in my husband’s office. I felt na safe place yun kasi opisina ng asawa ko. May mga naoffend, so I deleted that post. But I never ever said that I was taking gluta. It was vitamin C.” Mariel clarified.

“Dapat yung drip ko sa bahay talaga. Kaya lang nga, tumagal. Eh inintay ko po yung asawa ko na 9 o’clock, nasa opisina pa rin. So sabi ko, dito na lang, pumunta na lang sila dahil hindi ko naman naisipan na oh my gosh, maging national issue pala. That’s why I am saying sorry sa mga na-offend,” Mariel said.

“My intent was just to inspire others that even amidst various activities or wherever they are, they can still prioritize their health by taking vitamins. It was never my intention to malign nor undermine the integrity and dignity of the Senate. I want to extend my sincerest apologies to all concerned, including the members and staff of the Senate and the public,” Mariel explained.
