HUMARAP KAMAKAILAN SI Jericho Rosales sa The Buzz’s Tough Ten. His sense of truth is his strength both as an actor and as an interviewee. In the many interviews I have done with him, nakita ko siyang masaya, malungkot, umiyak at kiligin sa aming mga pag-uusap.
Echo is so back with an exciting career! Aside from being busy with ASAP and product endorsements, he reunites with Kristine Hermosa in his highly-anticipated teleserye Dahil May Isang Ikaw. He will soon release a new album.
He recently celebrated his 12th anniversary in showbiz. Ano pa ang kanyang mga pangarap sa buhay? Echo wants to do an international project and hopes to inspire more people. He also disclosed that he wants to get married and have a beautiful and strong family.
What are the most trying times in his life when he became a fish vendor, a father and an actor? “As a fish vendor, limited ka sa isang lugar. Insecurities. Mabaho. Amoy hasang ng isda. But there’s nothing wrong with being a fish vendor,” he pointed out. “I’m proud of my son. I love him and I want to keep him private.” As an actor, it is the decision-making that’s tough.
Echo laughs when he is with Karylle.
I asked him a hypothetical question during the interview. Paano kung masangkot ang kanyang karelasyon sa isang video scandal, ano ang kanyang mararamdaman at ano ang una niyang itatanong dito? “It will be painful. It happened in the past. I won’t dwell in the past because past is past. I’ll ask how I can help her.”
What gifts will he give to Tin-Tin, Cindy Kurleto and Heart Evangelista who were once linked to him? He will give a book and a plane ticket to Cindy who loves to travel. Bibigyan naman niya ng dog si Heart. Nahirapan siyang mag-isip ng regalo para kay Tin-Tin. “She’s very simple. She’s not materialistic. I have no idea buti na lang may show kami.”
Echo will tell his son to watch You Tube and see his father’s mistakes para hindi na niya ulitin ang mga pagkakamali nito.
Heart is allegedly separated from her boyfriend. What if she asks him if they can start over again? “‘Di ko ‘sinara ang puso ko but times have changed and we have different priorities right now.”
Echo describes Karylle as a bright woman.
Is he falling in love with Karylle? “No, not yet,” he replied.
If Oyo Sotto and Karylle are not in the picture, is it possible that he and Tin-Tin can get back together? Echo said Oyo is a good guy. Hindi raw sila ni Karylle. “I’m not closing my doors. Respect is there,” he said.
Kaibigan, usap tayo muli!
