The sex video scandal download of Maricar is available in many sites in the internet but most of them deleted the files when the controversy was also investigated by the NBI.
But Maricar kept her silence in the issue unlike Katrina Halili who has brought the issue in courts. Despite the sex video scandal, Maricar remained strong and continues with her work. ABS-CBN has given her more projects and she was featured in the network's show "Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Bud Brothers" in its Book 8 titled "Bewitched, Bothered, Bewildered". She is paired with Ahron Villena where she plays the role of Sandy, the submissive and patient wife of Pio (Ahron).

Some fans said they were intrigued with her for her involvement in the sex video scandal and want to see what she's got in acting that's why they followed Maricar in her episode in "May Bukas Pa". The fans and critics were amazed on her superb performance in "May Bukas Pa" where she plays as a woman with her own world. It was a very challenging role for a beginner like her but she had it with flying colors.
After "May Bukas Pa", critics again lauded her performance in "Your Song Presents: Gaano Kita Kamahal" where she plays the lead role and her biggest break so far. This time, Maricar is tested for her acting in drama where she portrays the role of a piano tutor, who, in turn of events, fall in love with the father (Sid Lucero) of her student. Things become more complicated when he do fall in love with her since his wife (Jodi Sta. Maria) is very busy with her work. It is a tale of true love and betrayal and again, Maricar gets the nod of critics for her performance.
Her next project in TV is "Lovers In Paris", a local adaptation of a Koreanovela with the same title, which is topbilled by Piolo Pascual and KC Concepcion. Maricar is billed as one of the main cast of the said TV soap.
