Umiigting sa mga pahayagan ang patutsada-han sa pagitan nina Jaclyn Jose at Laarni Enriquez involving their respective children rumoured to be sweethearts: sina Andi Eigenmann at Jake Ejercito.
Between the two mothers, we claim to much closer to Laarni. Magbarkada kami back in college, taking up the same course. Once, ex-President Joseph Estrada’s domestic partner invited a handful of her college friends in their tightly guarded Wack-Wack residence, Christmas season ‘yon kung saan we feasted on catered buffet.
As opposed to Jaclyn whom we have never met in person by any chance.
Maliwanag naman kasi sa naging recent radio interview kay Laarni sa DZMM that she’s not at all against her son Jake’s carrying on a relationship (or affair?) with Andi. Even former President Estrada made this clear.
Ang nais lang ni Laarni—which is perfectly understandable sa sinumang magulang—ay pagtuunan ng anak ang kanyang pag-aaral, love can stay on the wings until such academic goal have been achieved. Of course, Laarni’s statement should not be taken at face value, for sure, may mas malalim pang dahilan kung bakit she seems disapproving of Jake’s romantic liaison with her son.
Still, Laarni does not deserve to be blatantly attacked na kesyo ang pag-ayaw niya kay Andi has a lot to do with the latter’s pagiging isang dalagang ina. On that note kasi, it would appear that Laarni is moralizing the issue, gayong puwede rin siyang mapulaan as far as morality is concerned.
And by no means will Laarni raise an issue on morality, sino siya para manghusga kung sino ang moral at immoral?
If we may serve as Laarni’s mouthpiece, malaki ang kinalaman sa background ni Andi who got pregnant by Albie Casiño. This is opinion-based, if not a speculative analysis.
For some strange reason, parang itinaon naman ang pagda-drumbeat ng soap ni Andi sa ABS-CBN wherein she plays an all-mine-to-give spurned lover na larawan ng isang martir na mangingibig, when in truth and in fact, malayo ito sa kanyang personalidad. Kanino bang puso ang talagang nasugatan?
If we may just go back in time, whatever happened to the bugbugan incident allegedly perpetrated by Andi’s male friends at the Fiama Bar in Makati City noong May 5 this year? How come that despite Mrs. Rina Casiño’s stern promise, none of her son’s assailants was prosecuted nor convicted?
Dahil nga ba ‘yon sa umano’y ipinamamaraling kuneksiyon ni Andi, hence, Albie’s family just had to let go of the case as if nothing ever took place?
Oo nga’t when it comes to the affairs of the heart, the parents can only do so much. Pero hindi puwedeng sisisihin si Laarni if Andi is a round object that obviously does not fit in a square peg.
OF MORE than a dozen cast members who compose Star Cinema’s 24/7 In Love, the only visible loveteam in all ABS-CBN soaps together ay ang tambalang Kathryn Bernardo at Daniel Padilla via Princess & I.
Sila rin ang pinagmulan ng kuwento ng nasabing pelikula that marks the 20th anniversary of Star Magic, kung saan napagdugtung-dugtong ang sanrekwang romantic episodes ng obrang idinirihe ng apat na director.
Ironically though, when asked how it feels to be in love 24/7 ay hindi maka-relate si Kathryn. “Sixteen years pa lang po kasi ako,” sey ng batang aktres.
Doubly ironic naman sa kaso ng dalawang bagets na sina Zaijian Jaranilla at Xyriel Manabat who, at their tender age, already have crushes. Isang singer, presumably much older than him, ang pantasya ni Zaijian. Schoolmate naman ang crush ni Xyriel.
Showing on November 21, all seven loveteams make up the movie including Maja Salvador-Diether Ocampo, Kim Chiu-Gerald Anderson, Angelica Panganiban-John Lloyd Cruz, Bea Alonzo-Zanjoe Marudo, Piolo Pascual (as a ratardate) with Zaijian and Xyriel, and the odd pairing between Pokwang and Sam Milby.
