MANILA — Pauleen Luna admitted that her boyfriend Vic Sotto told her not to accept teleserye roles anymore.
In an interview during the presscon of the GMA series, “The Rich Man’s Daughter,” Luna said that she was “reprimanded” by Sotto when she learned that she will be doing another soap opera.
“Noong malaman nga ni Vic na may teleserye ulit ako, siya ang unang nag-react kung bakit ko tinanggap.
(Vic was the first to question why I accepted when he learned that I will be doing another teleserye.)
She added that Sotto doesn’t want her to work too much because she easily gets tired and sick.
“Noon pa niya sinasabi na huwag na akong magpakapagod sa teleserye dahil hindi ko naman daw kailangan pang gawin iyon. “Siyempre sinabi ko na kailangan ko ‘yon, sayang din yung project, ‘di ba? Kung si Vic ay hindi niya kailangan ang mga ganitong shows, e, ako, kailangan ko ito.
(He has been telling me not to tire myself with doing teleseryes because I don’t really need to do it. Offcourse I told him that I need it. If Vic doesn’t need those kind of shows, I do.)
He also added that Sotto is only trying to be protective about her health.
“I guess concerned lang siya sa health ko kaya gano’n siya. Sinabi ko naman na maaalagaan ko naman ang sarili ko at happiness ko itong umaarte ako sa TV. Naiintindihan naman ni Vic ‘yon,” she added.
(I guess he is only concerned about my health that’s why he reacted that way. I told him that I can handle myself and that I am happy that I do these kind of acting on TV. He understands it.)
