When Chino Sarenas of DMV Entertainment invited some members of the entertainment press to have dinner with Roxanne Guinoo, the actress’ marital status was in their mind. Is she staging a comeback because she’s separated from husband Elton Yap?
But even before we could ask Roxanne, Manny Valera and Chino said the couple are still together. “Elton was with us when we talked to Roxanne,” Manny V. said.
Roxanne is mother to one-year-old Rein Elliana, who she breastfed for four months. She’s a hands-on mother, having separation anxiety now that she expects to be busy in the coming months.
Yes, Roxanne said that Elton is supportive of her comeback bid in showbiz.
WHY DMV? – Roxanne was one of the bright stars of ABS-CBN Star Magic before she tied the knot with Elton. She topbilled two popular soaps, “Natutulog Pa ang Diyos” and “Ligaw na Bulaklak.”
Why did she sign up with Manny V’s entertainment company instead of her home studio? Roxanne said her good friend, Regine Angeles, a DMV talent urged her to do so.
Manny V said they’re considering several offers, including one from TV5 and “Malaala Mo Kaya,” the toprating ABS-CBN drama anthology. Roxanne wants to concentrate on drama, saying after motherhood, “Marami na akong paghuhugutan.”
But then Roxanne also tried comedy, “Everybody Happy” on TV5, and horror, Regal’s “Shake, Rattle & Roll 8, 9, 10.” Even action, “Palos,” with Jake Cuenca, who was also her love interest in “Natutulog.”
NOT ANYMORE, PLEASE – Jake is an ex-sweetheart. Is she willing to be paired with him again?
“Not anymore,” is her curt reply.
But why, ayaw ni Elton?
Roxannne’s afraid the press will dig up her past relationship with Jake, “Kaya ’wag na lang.”
Well, let’s see if Roxanne will stick to her word.
She didn’t say it, but it seems she isn’t in good terms with Jake. Well, a more recent ex-GF, Melissa Ricks, said outright she and Jake are not friends and she’d rather not work with him.
‘DIFFICULT’ – Roxanne Guinoo had this reputation as “difficult” to work with, with mood swings.
She explained, “Lumaki na lang ’yung issue, but I remained in good terms with Mr. M (Johnny Manahan) and Tita Mariole (Alberto) of Star Magic.
Okay, if that is what Roxanne said.
We – colleagues Cris Belen, Chit Ramos, Nestor Cuartero, Mario Bautista, Nitz Miralles, Mel Navarro – hope Roxanne will succeed in her comeback big. She remains pretty and sexy at 25.
