Ai-Ai delas Alas’ contract will expire in July and she’s not even sure if she will renew her contract with GMA 7 or move back to the Kapamilya network ABS-CBN 2.
“Magbabakasyon muna ako sa Amerika. Medyo matagal siguro ang bakasyon. Pero depende, eh. ‘Yun lang ang plano ko. Tuwing nagpaplano ako, ‘di naman natutuloy. Hayaan na lang kung ano ang mangyari.”
[I will be in America for a vacation. It will be a long one. But it depends. That’s my plan. Because everytime I plan it out, it doesn’t push through. Let’s just wait and see.]
She is not sure of what’s going to happen next but it will be up to Tito Boy Abunda who handles her career.
Will she return to ABS-CBN if she is to make a movie for Star Cinema?
“Go!” Ai Ai quickly answered.
She has not been able to say for sure since July is far away. She does not even think about it yet.
“In case lang naman ‘yun, Open naman ako sa lahat. Kung babalik ako sa ABS, kung may ano sa GMA, kung meron din sa Channel 5, depende. Pero freelancer muna ako.”
[That’s just a backup plan. I’m open to everything. If I return to ABS or to GMA or maybe even Channel 5. But I will be a freelancer in the meantime.]
Boy Abunda will take care of her career path.
Ai-Ai also talked about her wedding plans with Gerald Sibayan. She is just waiting for the wedding ring to make it formal.
“Matagal na raw niyang pinaghandaan ang singsing. Mahal kasi ‘yung singsing, eh. Kaya lang, hinuhulug-hulugan pa raw niya.
“Tinatanong ko nga, ilang gives ba ‘yan? ‘Basta matagal, huwag mo nang tanungin. Basta masu-surprise ka na lang, iiyak ka rito, iiyak ka.’
“Nai-excite ako siyempre, kasi hindi ko pa alam kung ano ang hitsura ng singsing. Hindi ko alam kung ilang gives ba ‘yun. Kung ilang taon na niyang pinaghirapan ‘yun,”
[He is preparing for the ring. It’s a little expensive so, he’s still paying for it. I ask “How long is it up for installment?”. ‘It’s going to take a while. Don’t ask. You will be surprised, you will cry.’ Of course, I’m
excited because I don’t know what the ring looks like, or how much did he pay for it. Or for how many years did he save up for it.]
Now she is still thinking of who will be part of the entourage.
She thinks Cong. Vilma Santos, Mr. Tony Tuviera, Mother Lily Monteverde, some politicians and Kuya Boy of course because he tells her that will wear a beautiful outfit.
She also finalized the secondary sponsors because she wanted to get her couple friends.
Sharon Cuneta and Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera and Vic Sotto and Pauleen Luna.
“Sinasabi ko kay Bossing, ‘Bossing abay ka, ha? Pero siyempre, ang bigay mo pang-ninong,’”
[I tell Bossing that he will be part of the entourage but his gift will amount to a principal sponsor (godfather).]
Marian promised her that she will pay for her wedding gown and her bouquet because the GMA Primetime Queen has a flower shop named Flora Vida.
They talked about it, because it’s been a long time and she wants to be ready because it’s different when the bride gets married in the church. This is Ai-Ai’s third wedding but she says it’s the most special.
