MANILA –It has been six years since actor Rudy Fernandez passed away, but wife, actress Lorna Tolentino, says she does not see herself exchanging ‘I do’s” again.
In an interview with The Philippine Star showbiz columnist Ricky Lo, Tolentino said: “I’m happy with my life now,” she said. “I am happy being a lola. I have two men in my life and I don’t need one more.”
The actress, who turns 53 this year, admits that although Fernandez gave her the green light to “fall in love again,” she is okay with her situation, at the moment.
“He told me naman that it’s okay lang for me to fall in love again. Kaya lang huwag daw d’un sa kasing-edad ng mga anak namin. But then, okay sana if I were in my 40s. Kaya lang nasa 50s na ako. As it is, as of now, okay lang ako,” she said.
Although she has moved on from the passing away of her husband, Tolentino acknowledges that her husband’s things are still intact in their home.
“They are intact, nasa cabinet. Rudy’s things are in order, ayos na ayos, so why touch them?” she said.
“Actually, Rap and Renz (her sons) are using some of their dad’s things. They would say, ‘Ay, kelangan ko ng ganito.’ And I would tell them, ‘Ayan, tumingin ka sa cabinet ng Papa n’yo, mayroon dyan.’ It’s a good thing na magkasukat sila…shoes, shirts etc.”
When asked by Lo how she sees herself in the next 10 years, Tolentino replied: “Sana umaarte pa rin ako; sana I will still be in this business. I see myself managing a business on the side, like farming.”
