During his most recent appearance on Tonight with Boy Abunda, Marlo Mortel took viewers all the way back to 2010 when he was a member of Star Magic’s Glee Club. This was when he first met FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano co-star Sue Ramirez. Another member of the group, at the time, was Janella Salvador. And with the mention of her name, he finally addressed the possibility of a MarNella reunion after speculations began to rise about ElNella coming to an end.
“’Wag ko raw agawin,” were only some of the comments he has read online. Marlo is aware that fans are not looking forward to him taking Elmo Magalona’s place. However, Marlo wanted to make it clear, “Never ako nakialam sa team up nilang dalawa.” The actor further explained that he is actually close with both Janella and Elmo. Which is why he only asks that netizens would respect him and try to understand his place.
“Wala akong kinalaman,” he went on to clarify in light of some who have gone as far as to involve his mother who has passed away. “Tulad noon sa mommy ko, hindi biro ‘yung pinagdadaanan namin sa bahay,” he expressed how hurt his feelings were by the personal attacks of angered fans. He does not respond to anything he sees online, but he has a message now, “Sana magpakatao lang kayo.”
If there’s truly is a possibility of MarNella getting back together, Marlo says that the decision is out of his hands. He is open to working with anyone. If that happens to be Janella, then there should be no problem because they are in good terms. “Never naman ako nag-close ng doors.”
