An explosive revelation happened in Bagong Umaga and as the truth shatters everyone’s world once again, let us look back on the fiercest confrontations between the heroine Tisay (Heaven Peralejo) and the ultimate kontrabida in her life, Cai (Barbie Imperial).
This Kapamilya Toplist opens with the two girls’ heated encounter at Hilda (Rio Locsin)’s office following the supposed demolition that ended in total chaos. Cai suddenly lashed out at Tisay as soon as the latter entered the room. In this scene, Cai accused the budding journalist Tisay of spreading fake news. She also called her and the community she belongs in as “squatters” and “freeloaders.”
Proving that she’s raised with morals, Tisay opted to just leave. She apologized to Hilda and said she’d rather shut her mouth than disrespect others. Cai was annoyed when her own Lola Hilda showed Tisay sympathy.
Fate played tricks on them when they also ended up as rivals in Ely (Tony Labrusca)’s heart. Although he obviously likes Tisay since the beginning, Cai, his former best friend, desperately tries to steal his attention. In another scene, Cai arrived at Ely’s house bringing his favorite fancy-sounding pasta. She noticed Tisay in the kitchen and fired subtle insults towards her and her humble ‘pancit’ recipe. She also called her “katulong.”
In that battle between Tisay and Cai, and their respective dishes, the more interesting one scored a point. “Kahit Pasta Al Tartufo pa yan, harina lang ‘yan, nilagyan mo lang ng sosyal na mantika. At least ‘yung pancit mas maraming sahog, mas masarap,” Tisay clapped back.
In another scene, Ely invited Tisay and Angge (Michelle Vito) for a special occasion at home, not knowing his mom Irene (Bernadette Allyson) also asked Cai to come over. The situation spelled conflict. Aware of her territory, Tisay told Cai, “Pumila ka! May nauna!” but the latter felt entitled. Ely meddled and low-key declared the winner by telling Tisay and Angge, “Kayo ang gusto kong makasama.”
The next round was more violent as Cai stormed to Tisay’s workplace and made a scene. A lot of shouting and hair pulling happened until Tisay’s family came to her rescue. Jose (Keempee de Leon) and Monica (Nikki Valdez) halted the squabble. After the fight, Monica tried to comfort Cai but the latter showed a bad attitude, telling her, “Hindi ako magso-sorry sa’yo, ah! Bakit mo ba ako tinititigan? Kinukulam mo ba ako?”
Perhaps, the consequences of physical fights are only skin-deep compared to the soul-crushing effects of brutal honesty. Dodong (Yves Flores) confronted Cai for using him to take important files from their office. He did not get the apology he was expecting. He was mocked instead.
So, Tisay and Angge came to the rescue. Tisay told Cai, “Kung maliitin mo ‘tong kapatid ko, parang ang galing-galing mo ah. Eh, magnanakaw ka, sinungaling ka, manggagamit ka! Ang ganda ganda mo pero sa loob, bulok ka naman!,” in a totally fierce, feisty manner that left her rival speechless and in tears.
