K Brosas shared the tragic past that she went through
Comedienne-host K Brosas shared the deeper story about her mother who was an “akyat barko” or one who “entertained” the American soldiers in Olongapo in the past.
K is one of the popular comediennes in the Philippines nowadays. She is also known for her beautiful voice aside from providing laughter to her audience. However, behind her smile and the laughter she is sharing with her audience, K had a tragic past.
In a recent episode of Toni Gonzaga’s Toni Talks on YouTube, the popular comedienne shared the hardships she went through that were far from what she is usually showing on stage and in front of the camera.
For her, comedy is “tragedy plus time.” She has anticipated the point in which she can laugh at the tragedy she went through because time has passed already.
K Brosas shared that when her mom gave birth to her and saw that she had a white complexion, she remarked, “puti ang naka-keme sa kaniya.” It is because her mother did not know who her father was. She recalled that she has not dug out this part of her life story before.
Because of poverty, K was left under the care of her aunt who can afford to support her. However, she still did not receive the love that a family can provide. The comedienne said that she and her biological mother do not have any “relationship” as they seldom see each other.
On the other hand, K said that she knows her “mama” or the sister of her mother, loves her but it was not manifested properly. “Hirap siya, tapos mabigat ang kamay,” K said adding that she became a “masuwail na anak” when she was young.
The comedienne also said that she is thankful somehow to her adoptive parents who sent her to famous educational institutions. K Brosas also shared details about how she suffered due to her mental health problem because of what she went through and the time when she tried to hit her biological mother with a stand fan because of that the latter said.
When Toni asked her where she gets the “love” that is supposed to be given to her as a daughter or a family member, K said with a laugh, “wala, sa mga friends.”
