An unidentified man caught her using a recording camera but Rivera got angry and shouted him to stop and unexpectedly said bad words. According to Marian, she has no PA (personal assistant) in the set because the said PA is pregnant. A said video about a feud of Rivera and an unidentified man was a verbal issue and not a slapping issue. She threw her words about a video "Kahit payat at maliit ako, hindi ako papayag apihin. Caviteña ako, lalaban ako! Walang nang-aapi sa akin!" ("Even I'm slim and petite, I will not be oppressed. I'm a Caviteña, I will fight! No one can oppress me!").

According to Reggee Bonoan on his “Showbiz Atbpa.” column in Balita, a number of people have seen the last update by FHM with regards to the ongoing “100 Sexiest” poll wherein the Dyesebel star has overtaken the top spot from Angel Locsin. Prior to the deadline of the poll, reports proliferated on blogs and even on primetime news last week that Angel Locsin is leading the said poll by more than 7,000 votes. Following her is previous winner Katrina Halili and in third place is Marian Rivera.
But unfortunately, the rival Men's Magazine Maxim Philippines, the leading men's magazine in the world declares Angel Locsin as its Sexiest Woman in the Philippines through peoples votes and this was supported by majority of the fans in the Philippines.
