DINGDONG DANTES and Andrea Torres. Marian Rivera is jealous?
Showbiz is abuzzed with rumors that comely actress Andrea Torres is being linked to her co-star Dingdong Dantes.
But Andrea immediately shrugged off the rumors, stressing that she is not worried that rumors linking her to the hunk actor have been revived now that they are reunited in the GMA network series “Ang Pagbabalik ni Alyas Robin Hood.”
It was learned that Andrea is reprising her role as Venus in the primetime daily show.
“Ako kasi, I just want to be positive about things so hindi ko na lang iniisip ‘yung mga ganyan,” Andrea told showbiz authority and columnist Mario Bautista.
“Kasi if you’d let yourself be affected by intrigues, magkakailangan lang kayo sa taping. Eh, sa ngayon, napakadali ng trabaho namin kasi kilala na namin ang isa’t isa after magkasama kami noong first season,” she said.
“ Si Pepe talaga ang nakikita ko sa kay Kuya Dong and it’s always fun to work with him kasi marami rin akong natutuhan sa kanya. Hindi kami nagpapaapekto sa mga issue at intriga,” she added.
Due to the rumors, Andrea is being bashed for being linked to Dong.
The actress has a ready explanation to this. “I respect him and his marriage (with Marian Rivera). You can see naman na they’re a happy family, so I don’t let myself be affected by bashing on social media,” Andrea stressed.
“Lahat naman ngayon, nagbibigay ng opinion nila, very judgmental, di ba? Ang mahalaga, kilala mo ‘yung sarili mo. Ako naman, ever since, alam ko kunsaan ako lulugar. Ang importante, you are always professional,” she told the columnist.
“Nandito ka para magtrabaho, so gawin mo lang nang tama ang trabaho mo,” Andrea said.
“Kaya kahit pagbintangan nila ako, basta malinis ang konsensiya ko at kilala ng mga tao sa paligid ko ‘yung tunay na ako, ‘yun ang mas importante. Never akong pumatol as in nang-away. May basher na kung anu-ano ang sinabi sa’king panlalait, ang sagot ko lang, I will pray for you when I go to church. Kasi lahat kami ng buong family ko, madasalin talaga,” she pointed out.
Andrea discussed the Season 2 of the television series with Dingdong.“Mas pasabog ito sa umpisa pa lang. Kasi magpo-propose na sa’kin ng marriage si Pepe complete with an engagement ring. Kaso, bago pa matuloy ang wedding namin, magkakaroon ng complications,” she said.
“ Ang mother niyang si Jaclyn Jose as Judy, magiging biktima ng terrorist group headed by Jay Manalo. Magiging hostage sa pagsalakay nina Jay sa city hall. Mas pasabog din ang fight scenes dito. Meron akong fight scene sa bubong ng tall building, eh may fear of heights ako, pero ginawa ko pa rin,” she noted.
“ Then papasok pa si Edu Manzano as a corrupt politician at magkakaroon ako ng bagong ka-love triangle kay Pepe, si Solenn Heussaff. Kaya abangan nyo ang Season 2 after ‘Mulawin vs. Ravena’,” Andrea said.
Andrea told Mario Bautista that she is happier now that GMA Artist Center is managing her and no longer Triple A which also manages Marian Rivera.
“Oo naman, pero nagpaalam naman ako nang maayos sa Triple A kaya maganda ang naging paghihiwalay namin. Noong magkita nga kami sa Tagaytay noong wedding ni Rochelle Pangilinan nina Mr. Tony Tuviera at Ateng Rams David, big bosses ng Triple A, I hugged them, nagkuwentuhan kami and we’re okay,” Andrea recounted.
At that wedding, many people were wondering why Marian was absent when the groom is Dingdong’s cousin. “Siyempre hindi pupunta roon si Marian kasi si Andrea ang maid of honor ni Rochelle at si Dong ang best man ng groom na si Arthur Solinap,” someone who attended the wedding said. “Baka ma-out of place lang siya roon kaya unawain na lang natin.”
Meanwhile, Marian Rivera dismissed rumors that she has something to do with Andrea Torres’ departure from Triple A, headed by Tony Tuviera.
As reported on PEP, the actress, whose rumoured rift with Torres has been reported for a while now, expressed her surprise by the allegations, saying, “How am I so powerful? Am I more powerful than Mr. Tuviera?”
Marian reiterated her previous statement, that she has no issue with Torres and that she’s not the kind of person who would do such a thing to other people. The actress also shut down continuous rumours that she is jealous of Torres’ chemistry with her husband, Dingdong Dantes in “Alyas Robin Hood”, adding that she treats the actress like her own little sister.
“As a big sister, I am very open to hearing her issues if there’s any,” she said. In a previous interview, Torres stated that she has great respect for Triple A and will not make further statements as to why she decided to move to GMA Artist Center.
