Ai-Ai delas Alas has her hands full.
Aside from Kara Mia and Sunday PinaSaya, she is currently promoting S.O.N.S. (Son of Nanay Sabel), which will be shown today, May 8.
Three more movies are in the works, plus she is busy with her growing food empire.
Ai-Ai also manages the rap group Ex-Battalion. Its members are Bosx1ne, Flow-G, Brando, Emcee Rhenn, and King Badger.
The latter recently became controversial after his marital troubles with wife Jelai Andres made their way to social media. The third party was Toni Fowler, an Internet sensation.
When asked about Ai-Ai’s advice to King Badger, the comedian replied, “Wala sinasabi ko sa kanya na ang pag-aasawa, kaya ka na nakipag-commit, nangako ka kay Lord na for better or for worse, so, panindigan mo yung pangako mong ‘iyon sa Panginoon.”
Doesn’t she find the controversies involving her talents stressful?
“Hindi kasama yun. Hindi naman, parang mga anak lang din na pasaway. So sanay na ako, nanay naman ako, so, parang mga anak ko lang din na pasaway, tatalakan nang konti, lalambingin nang konti…balanseng ano lang din.
“Nakikinig naman, wag lang topakin. Kasi may mga topak. Artists kasi.”
Setting the issues aside, Ai-Ai assured the fans of one thing: “Pogi naman sila sa screen.”
The guys will play “sons of Nanay Sabel” in their debut movie.
Ai-Ai resumed, “Ayun, okay naman sila, minsan pasaway pa rin. Pero alam mo ngayon, okay naman, excited sila sa movie nila. Actually magaling sila dun, Mars, in fairness naman sa kanila.
“Saka pogi naman sila sa screen kahit naman sila ganun. Kasi yung dalawa maitim, e. In fairness, cute naman sila sa screen…Nailawan naman nang maayos kaya pumuti-puti naman.”
Does she have plans of adding more people to her roster of talents?
She quickly replied, “Ay hindi, ayoko na!!! Ayoko muna. Okay na muna ako. Ayoko na. Ayoko na ng stress…Ang dami ko rin kasing inaasikaso.
“Paano ko aasikasuhin yung negosyo ko kung magma-manage pa ako ng ibang tao.”
The intevriew was held at her restaurant Ai-sian Fusion, Level 3, Ayala Cloverleaf—where she was launched as the ambassador of Siomai King last May 1.
