‘PBB’s’ Karen Bordador tells her truth on ‘MMK’

Being deprived of liberty for five years for a crime she did not commit was arguably the most difficult part of disc jockey and former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate Karen Bordador’s life.

But with her unwavering faith, Bordador never gave up and is now ready to tell her story in Maalaala Mo Kaya’s two-part International Women’s month special. Hoping to also shed light to the predicament of persons deprived of liberty, the episode will air its first part tonight and its conclusion on March 19.

“I can’t believe that my story would be shared finally. I’m a big fan of ‘MMK.’ Inside the cell, we watched it every Saturday and we would talk about how we would dream to be part of it,” the radio and TV personality said.

Bordador, who was a contestant of ABS-CBN’s reality contest “I Do” in 2014, was living a wonderful life as a DJ and model, but her life took a 360-degree turn after visiting her boyfriend one morning. Just within seconds of her arrival, police swooped down the place and arrested them in connection with an illegal drugs buy-bust operation.

Her life went downhill since then. Her reputation was tarnished. Proving her innocence was a long and arduous battle.

In telling her story, Bordador hopes to show how her unwavering faith in God opened her eyes through the small blessings she got inside the cell and how she was determined to bounce back following the court’s acquittal.

She added, “This sharing is not to set me free, but it is to set a lot of people free and make them realize that life is great. People out there, their minds are imprisoned even if they are not in prison. I just want to let them know what happened to me five years ago and look where you’re at, you are in a more privileged situation. Let’s set each other free.”

Portraying Bordador in the TV special is Kaila Estrada who admitted that she admired the former’s strength and positivity amidst the trials she faced.

“She is an epitome of a strong woman for me. I cannot imagine going through what she went through. The fact that she is positive and her fighting spirit to fight regardless of what was thrown at her. It was so inspiring.

“My main takeaway is there is always light at the end of the tunnel. She found a purpose and she was of service to other people and to herself given what she was facing,” Estrada said.

Joining Estrada in the episode are Bordador, Lou Yanong and Shamaine Buencamino. It is directed by Raz dela Torre.

Watch “MMK” on A2Z, Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live on YouTube, ABS-CBN Entertainment Facebook page, and iWantTFC. Outside the Philippines, it is available on cable and IPTV via The Filipino Channel.
