Andrea Brillantes’s interview, where she revealed her rare condition, recirculated on social media after spilling the tea about her ex-boyfriend Ricci Rivero’s alleged membership to the ‘no wash movement.’
In her recent interview with Vice Ganda, Andrea hinted that Ricci was not washing his clothes for a year.
“Gusto ko lang sabihin minsan, kung hirap ka mag-move on, kailangan mo talaga isipin ‘yung mga bagay na, ‘Talaga ba iiyakan ko ‘yung lalakeng hindi nagpapa-laundy nang isang taon?” Andrea said.
Netizens couldn’t figure out how Andrea could endure the said rumored attitude of her ex-boyfriend before realizing that the actress had no ability to smell.
“Oh that makes sense,” netizen Rachell said.
“Kaya pla di nya na amoy ung 1year di nagpa laundry si RICCI,” netizen Enovie commented.
In 2022, Andrea disclosed in an interview with Karen Davila that she has been struggling to smell due to her condition called congenital anosmia.
“Wala po akong pang-amoy at all. Wala po talaga, as in puwede po akong ututan sa mukha, kasi inututan ako ni daddy dati. Silang lahat, hinintay nila ang reaction ko. Doon ko na-realize, hala, may mali ba sa akin?” she revealed.
According to her, she couldn’t even recognize if the food was spoiled already because she couldn’t smell it.
