Singer Maria Del Mar slams actress Maria Del Mar on Facebook

Pop Goes The News — The former lead singer of a Canadian rock band attacked a veteran Canadian actress this week over their common name.

Maria Morales, known as Maria Del Mar in the ‘80s and ‘90s goth group National Velvet, called Maria Del Mar a “faker” and “imposter” in a bizarre rant on the latter’s Facebook page.

Del Mar, who starred in the Canadian series Street Legal and Blue Murder and appeared on shows like Frasier, 24 and Hannibal, was born Maria del Mar del Castillo.

The brouhaha began Thursday, a day after Del Mar posted a link to an article about the Jian Ghomeshi trial on her Facebook page.

Morales commented: “its amazing how many actresses are jumping on successful people. HMMMM bill cosby HMMMMMM shame on diggin shallow graves.”

Del Mar responded by asking if Morales was “suggesting that these ‘many actresses’ are doing this for duplicitous reasons?”

“I do not suggest,” Morales replied. “I state clearly. Do not read between the lines. I say what I mean. I state the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Makes some people sqirrmy.”

But what began as a difference of opinions quickly devolved into a strange personal attack on Del Mar.

Morales took issue with sharing a professional name with Del Mar.

“This is the original Maria Del Mar the writer, composer, musician, ground blazer Maria Del Mar. Nothing to anal ize. Why do you try and be smarter than me. Futile, vain girl. Selfie this FUCK YOU ACTOR THANG I CAN I HAVE MY NAME BACK. YOU OPPERTUNISTIC ACT THOREISH YUKKY ICKKY FAKER.”

The singer, who had one film role in 1991, added: “YOU TOOK THE JOBS I DID NOT WANT. I THOUGHT THE SCRIPTS SUCKED AND I DON ‘T BACK THINGS I DO NOT BELIEVE IN . THE CREW TOLD ME THEY WERE DISSAPPOINTED WHEN YOUY WALKED IN WITH MY NAME. NAME SAKER FAKER ACTRESS.”

fbrant

Del Mar pointed out that both women use their actual first names as their professional names.

“You are kidding yourself if you think you and/or I are the only ones that have the same first name,” she wrote. “Pretty silly to think only YOU in all of the Spanish speaking countries have that name. Perhaps spend some time in a Spanish speaking country so you can meet others with the same name.”

Morales reacted with another upper-case rant.

“LIES ARE LIES, BENDING THE TRUTH IS THE OLDEST TRICK IN THE BOOK. I HAVE MORE RESPECT FOR A PROSTITUTE THAT CLEARLY SAYS I AM A PROSTITUTE. I CHARGE THIS FOR THAT. MALE AND FEMALE ALIKE. I AM SO SICK OF THIS FAKE WOMENS LIBERATION BULLSHIT FROM ACTORS AND ACTRESSES ALWAYS JUMPING ONE ONE HOT TOPIC TO THE NEXT IN HOPES THAT SOMEONE MIGHT TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY. YOU ARE ALL A FUCKING JOKE! HOW YOUY GONNA TRY MISCONSEW SEW SEW SEW THAT? THIS IS MARIA DEL MAR THE ORIGINAL. NOW KINDLY FUCK OFF MARIA THE IMPOSTERESSACTRESSESESESE THRRRRRRE . FAKER FAKER BANDWAGON JUMPER.”

On Friday, Del Mar — who gave permission for the exchange on her Facebook page to be publicized — called Morales “aggressive and hostile.”

Morales has not yet responded to a request for comment.

  1. Super rude Tony!

    But alas, it is sad that the National Velvet Del Mar has not come out of the other side of alcoholism….

  2. But alas, it is sad that the National Velvet Del Mar has not come out of the other side of alcoholism….and refuses medical care. I love my sister so very much, it hurts deeply when she acts out in public. I am not her parent. Gave it up 5 weeks ago. She has to live her own life, make the right choices, and stop fueling her psychosis with alcohol. She has always been a “Little monkey”. How I deal with it all my life.
    Stay out of my family business. Seems you are reading this because you enjoy it.

  3. It’s a business full of Egos, sociopaths and greedy little daemons. A very sick business, attracting very sick people, run by sick people. They call themselves Stars, and believe they are Gods and Goddesses. We are only here to serve them. Why I quit the business and only write family friendly scripts now. Their entitlement issues are psychiatric . No different from religious leaders, politicians and academics. Sad. What a waste of talent.

  4. Maria Del Mar Morales could still have a career if she sobered-up. As it is now, people are afraid to work with her because she attacks people when she’s drunk. I wish her well.

  5. She has been used and abused by the same people in this industry which she made so much money for. Maria is a kind and caring person, has done so much for so many, but we have all experienced the ‘Crunch’ of the selfish and oppressive bastards who run the industry. Making Artists into corporate lackeys, or they are punished and ousted. Maria is an Independent Artist, Brilliant and powerful. Never giving in on her moral and ethical grounds , which makes her an Honourable Woman. Good for you Maria !You also paved the way for all the girls in N. Ontario to sign better deals than the sh*tty one you got. They should thank her.

  6. I believe everything you say is true. But, judging by this article, her problems run deeper than a bad record deal from 25 years ago. I hope she can find peace and gets some professional help for her drinking and rage problems.

  7. And we all do. So what’s in your closet? You must be hiding something.
    At least she is honest. Always was. Always will be.

  8. Maria (Morales) is an old friend.

    Honest and dynamic … and needs serious help.

    Her facebook updates over the past 18 months are confusing and sad.

    Example from last month:
    “I am getting married to the man of my dreams, never married before as I do not believe in divorce not to say it is wrong, just not rite by me, His name is Chase and he is ultimately the man of my dreams, so very worth waiting for, I am now half a century old and I am ready, He is the only man that has ever courted me properly so I accept his love for me and he of mine”

    Same week:
    Well my friends it was all a scam but I did not send any money to the terrorists groups, no wedding after all but in the back of my mind I knew it was too good to be true. Nothing ventured, nothing gained and when the death threats came after i refused to pay for luggage intrusted in me that when the writing style of my romantic guy changed to nasty death threats, hahahaha joke is on them. Beware and becarefull babies. There still is nothing to be said for meeting people the natural way, face to face, eye to eye and heart to heart!

    Dean: i too hope she can find peace and seek the professional help she needs.

    I’ve been down that path.

    Please get help Maria. We all love you.

  9. Thank you Dean. Please get off the Public a-Go-Go and write to her or call her in person.

    Hey everybody! Beyonce will be at the Rogers Centre this May 25th. Tickets still available.
