According to Piolo Pascual, he still wants to star in the soap opera titled Written in our Stars originally meant for him and Toni Gonzaga.
“It just so happened that Toni got pregnant so it had to be shelved temporarily. But now that she has already given birth, I’m positive that the project will finally push through. For sure, this is a welcome thing for our respective fans,” Piolo said. “Actually, I sent Toni a text message to tell her that if I were to do a soap once again, I want it to be with her. I’m happy to get a positive response because she expressed her desire to do the project. She just told me to wait while she’s working on her figure to come back. So, maybe come January or February next year, we can start taping.”
There’s a reason why the handsome actor is determined to star in the soap.
“Well, I guess it’s understandable, to think that my last prime time offering was Hawak Kamay in 2014. It’s been two years. I also miss appearing in a daily soap. Apart from the fact that it will be with Toni, Sam Milby is also part of the main cast. Don’t you think it’s an exciting screen combination?”
Since Toni just gave birth, many ask if he’s not jealous of the thought.
“Honestly, having another baby is a nice idea. Personally, I would still like to have another one in the future. A child brings joy to any household. But at this point, I’m content with my only son Iñigo who is just like a buddy to me. I tag him along in most of my social functions.”
Right now, the award-winning Kapamilya actor enjoys his light work schedule.
“I’m finishing just one film called Once in a Lifetime opposite Yen Santos. This is under Regal Entertainment. Like what I’ve mentioned before, following a hectic schedule in previous years, I needed to slow my pace, take some time off and just rest in order to recharge my batteries, so to speak. This is good for the craft,” ends Piolo.
Regine Tolentino admits she has gradually adjusted to leading the single life after her separation from Lander Vera-Perez more than a year ago.
“We are actually on the process of making things legal. It’ll be soon,” she says.
Is reconciliation still possible in the coming days?
“We haven’t communicated since then. Probably, there’s nothing like that at this point. As far as I’m concerned, it’s over. This is a new chapter in my life and he’s not included anymore. With our daughters Reign and Reigen, I give them the option. In fact, I always encourage them. You should communicate and do what you need to do or feel what is right.”
At this point, Regine is okay with how she runs her life.
“Well, for one, I’m busy with Zumba and managing my boutique. I always stay positive and that’s what helps me to get through everything. I have a mind-set as to where I want to direct my life, particularly my family and career. I guess, that’s what keeps me healthy, strong and inspired with my job.”
The dance empress wants her separation from Lander to be legalized first before she enters a new relationship.
“Yes, I should be a good girl at this point. Ha-ha-ha! Honestly, I’m ready to have a new love but it’s just that there’s no opportunity. I’m just waiting for the right time to focus on that part of my life.
“I have a very hectic schedule that it doesn’t permit me to do extra-curricular activities, except for my daughters. And I don’t have any complain. I love what I do and I have enough time to spend with my girls. Let’s take it from there,” Regine states.
