It’s been years since KaladKaren was born in showbiz due to her entertaining and on-point impersonation of news anchor Karen Davila. The host-comedian will always be proud of her humble beginnings and grateful for the love she continues to receive from Karen Davila herself.
“Ma’am Karen and the ‘Karen Davila’ persona will always be with me. Never nang mawawala sa akin ‘yan at siya po ang dahilan kung bakit ako napansin, where I am now is because of the support that Ma’am Karen gave me and I will always be grateful for that,” her heartfelt statement.
But, KaladKaren admits that she is now starting to explore her career and move out of being just an impersonator. “’Pag naging Karen Davila ka lang, you will be put in a box. Hindi ka makakagalaw. Paano ako makakapag-off shoulder at makakapag-slit ‘di ba kung si Ma’am Karen ako ngayon? I’m trying my best to expand my branding a little bit. Whenever I appear on TV, medyo pinapahinga ko na ang cobra hair. Iniiba ko na rin nang kaunti ang itsura ko,” shares KaladKaren.
All throughout the years of being Karen Davila’s double, KaladKaren made sure to never taint the respected anchor’s reputation. “Hindi ko naman po nabastos ang kredibilidad ni Ma’am Karen, as far as I am concerned. Naging careful ako doon sa mga opinion ko on social media, naging careful din ako on how I represent myself in public.”
“Sana, Ma’am Karen, I made you proud somehow,” the humble KaladKaren tells as she gives credit to the woman who became an instrument of her growing success.
Now dubbed as ‘The Digital Show Diva’, KaladKaren has a lot on her plate including a hosting gig for Umagang Kay Ganda and I Can See Your Voice where she acts as one of the Sing-vestigators.
