"Ay, naku, hindi po! Hindi po! Hindi po!" she said laughing. "Parang katulad lang po natin ngayon na mga Pilipino, dahil nakakita nga tayo ng trahedya, tumutulong lang tayo sa mga naapektuhan. Wala pong halong pulitika ito. Hindi ko po ma-picture ang sarili ko na tatakbo."
Angel also mentioned that aside from celebrities who donated clothes and fashion accessories on their online auction, there are some politicians who have already donated their personal belongings to the project. "Ayoko na lang mag-name ng names," she said.
And if there are politicians who will approach her and Anne to take part on their project, Angel said, "Siguro, mas makakatulong sila kung mag-bid sila, di ba? Kesa yung kami ang magbenta ng product nila."
Why did they choose the Red Cross for this project?
"Sa experience kasi, matagal na sila," Angel replied. "Alam na nila kung papaano idi-distribute yung lahat. Yung mga lugar na kailangang puntahan. Kung sino yung nangangailangan ng tulong talaga. Ang Red Cross, nakita ko na talaga kung paano sila umaksyon. Kaya masasabi ko talaga na I'm very proud na kasama namin sila dito sa Shop & Share. Nakita ko sila kung papaano sila ka-sincere na tumulong sa mga nangangailangan."
LUIS MANZANO. On the showbiz side, Angel admitted that she and ex-boyfriend Luis Manzano had already talked. "Nag-usap kami ni Luis," she said. "Nagkita kami nung ASAP, biglaan. Nagulat ako, as in... 'Hello, ASAP!'"
How is her relationship with the son of Gov. Vilma Santos and vice-presidential candidate Edu Manzano now?
"Okay naman kami. Nakakapag-usap na kami. Okay kami na hindi naman kami magkaaway," she replied.
Would there be a chance of reconciliation?
"Ayoko namang magsalita ng tapos, pero sa ngayon, we respect each other's decision."
EMMY NOMINEE. Any day now, the actress will fly to the U.S. to attend the International Emmys. Angel is vying for the Best Actress trophy for the fantasy series Lobo, her first teleserye with ABS-CBN. But she said she does not expect to win the award.
"Ayoko ring isipin, kasi lalo lang akong mate-tense," said Angel.
Accompanying Angel is her business manager Becky Aguila and some people from ABS-CBN.
"May niyayaya ako, e. Pero hindi ko alam kung magye-yes. Secret pa, baka mapurnada," the actress said.
