Avid radio listeners would know DJ Chacha as an entertaining host with a boisterous laughter and never-ending witty remarks. But a conversation with the King of Talk Boy Abunda makes her anxious and run out of words. In her guesting in TWBA last March 25, DJ Chacha jests feeling like facing a panelist for a thesis defense.
DJ Chacha or Czarina Marie Balba in real life, has developed good friendship with actresses Jinri Park and Elisse Joson, whom she got close with during their stay inside the Pinoy Big Brother house. The trio even had a fun bonding during their recent out-of-the-country trip. DJ Chacha posted a video documenting her travel with Jinri and Elisse; bringing her into a pit of netizens’ boiling hot negative comments.
TWBA: Chacha, na-bash dahil sa friendship nila nina Elisse at Jinri Park
Bashers remark that the three’s closeness seems odd since DJ ChaCha doesn’t fit the group; with most haters gauging their friendship based on categories of age and physical appearance. Of all the criticisms she receives due to a mere girly bond with Jinri and Elisse, she recalls one comment saying she must befriend Mommy Pinty (Toni and Alex Gonzaga’s mother) and Karla Eastrada instead. DJ Chacha simply ignores the negative words thrown at her and even responds to them with laughter. The cheerful disk jockey is not bothered by the bashing unless her kid and family members get involved.
Aside from being a popular radio personality, DJ Chacha takes her first step into becoming an actress. She is a part of the romantic-comedy film “Pansamantagal” topbilled by Gelli de Belen and Bayani Agbayani. DJ Chacha plays the role of a waitress who is known for her frankness and happy nature.
