BY NOW, nataraugan na ang showbiz mom na ito na itatago na lang namin sa alias na “Ms. Pamplona” (who is neither from Las Piñas nor from Spain) if only for the fact na kailangan pang pahinugin sa kalburo o sa bigasan ang kanyang anak whose movie — when it opened alongside a youth-oriented film — literally ate dust!
Overall, isa na namang malaking sampal ito sa producer ng pelikula na makailang beses nang namumuhunan on projects which were not exactly money-making ventures. Heto’t nagsugal na naman sila sa isang proyekto thinking na isa nang established loveteam ang mga bida rito, or so Ms. Pamplona thought as well.
In one’s life, there’s such a thing as acceptance, a milder term for resignation. Sa aminin man o hindi ni Ms. Pamplona — connecting Las Piñas to Spain is a mile-long distance para masabing malayo pa ang dapat ibiyahe ng kanyang anak to attain bankability as an actor.
Or, it will probably take more than one “season” to see her son achieve his goal.
