Is Andrea ready to fall in love again?


    She said she is the type who gives herself time to heal before entering another relationship.

    Andrea Torres

    Andrea Torres plays Dianne in the upcoming GMA drama series, “Legal Wives.” She’s the only Christian among the three wives of Dennis Trillo in the story. The other wives, Alice Dixson and Bianca Umali, are Muslims like Dennis. They’ve finished the first cycle of their lock-in taping and now that the country is on lockdown again due to the surge in Covid cases, they’ll have to wait before they can resume their taping.

    Since her ex-boyfriend Derek Ramsay has officially proposed marriage to Ellen Adarna, it’s but natural for folks to be curious on how Andrea feels about it. In a TV show, she was asked if she felt any tinge of jealousy at all. “Wala,” was her curt reply.

    Does she feel any regret?

    “Meron,” she said. “Pero para sa panahong nawala sa ating lahat dahil sa Covid, ‘di ba? Ang daming nasayang na oras at opportunities dahil sa virus.”

    Would she say she’s happy now?

    “Yes, my heart is happy.”

    From a score of 1 to 10, how happy?

    “Siguro, mga 8.5 percent happy.”

    Is she ready to fall in love again?

    “Ako, not yet. When I’m in a relationship kasi, all out ako. So kapag dumating na sa point na kumalas na ako, alam ko sa sarili ko na nasagad ko na. Usually kasi, kapag ganito, binibigyan ko talaga ng time ang sarili ko para maging mag-isa muna, to heal fully. Para kapag dumating ‘yung next, all out na ulit ako.”


    Rocco Nacino has obviously let bygones be bygones. After he and Lovi Poe broke up before, he said he was not willing to work with her again. But now, he has agreed to join Lovi’s hit primetime romantic comedy, “Owe My Love.”

    This should come as no surprise as Rocco is now married to athlete Melissa Gohing. They wed on January 21 in a unique military wedding-civil ceremony held on board a ship at Pier 13. They now live happily in the new mansion Rocco built for himself in Antipolo and he has apparently moved on from previous heartaches in his life.

    Rocco plays Dr. Kenneth Paul who is set to cause a complication in the lives of Sensen Guipit (Lovi Poe) and Dr. Migs Alcancia (Ben Alves). After finally admitting their feelings for each other, it seems Sensen and Migs are ready to take their relationship to the next level.

    But to Sensen’s surprise, Migs withdraws and stays away from her. It seems his parents’ falling-out and his mother’s infidelity have given him reasons to be afraid of commitment.

    He is now doubting the possibility of success of any serious romantic relationship.

    But just as Sensen is starting to accept Migs’ decision, she reconnects with Dr. Kenneth, a colleague in college. Rocco as Kenneth has several scenes with Lovi and it’s obvious they’re now very relaxed in each other’s company.

    “Owe My Love” airs weeknights at 9:35 on GMA.


    Gabby Concepcion has reason to be proud of his current show, GMA’s “First Yaya,” as it’s his biggest hit so far. His previous shows with younger leading ladies like “Because of You” with Carla Abellana, “Love You Two” with Jennylyn Mercado and “Ika-5 Utos” with Sunshine Dizon and Ryza Cenon, also rated well, but still not as successful as “First Yaya” that is consistently rating 20 percent plus on primetime.

    “Nagpapasalamat kami ni Sanya Lopez sa lahat ng regular followers ng ‘First Yaya’ at sa lakas ng suporta nyo sa amin,” he says. “Even the GMA management is very happy.”

    Why do his shows paired with younger actresses all click with the viewing public?

    “I really can’t tell, but I always make an effort na makapa ko muna kung ano ang magki-click sa amin to help our chemistry. Siguro it’s a brew, a combination of various elements.

    Lahat naman sila, magagaling. Lahat, na-enjoy kong katrabaho. Si Sanya, natural talaga siya. Wala siyang front to just put her best foot forward kaya maganda ang working relationship namin.”

    Gabby is now the only remaining actor in his generation of Regal Babies who continue to play lead roles. William Martinez only appears occasionally while his brother Albert now plays only father and villain roles. Even their female co-stars, Dina Bonnevie, Maricel Soriano and Snooky Serna, now play mother roles, unlike Gabby who still gets paired with much younger stars. To think there was a time Gabby was absent for so long when he stayed in the States.

    Gabby’s latest leading lady, Sanya Lopez, is only 24 years old, more than double his age as he’s 56. Sanya is even much younger than his eldest daughter, KC Concepcion, who is now 35 years old and still very much negotiable.

    Speaking of KC, Gabby posted a picture of him with his daughter last Holy Week. It seems like they spent it together as his caption read: “Spend quality time with the people who matter the most to you, especially those close to your heart.”
