Will Alessandra de Rossi quit show business?
This was one of Boy Abunda's questions to Alessandra during her guesting with Kita Kita leading man Empoy Marquez in the August 1 episode of Tonight With Boy Abunda.
Last Sunday, July 30, Alessandra told AlEmpoy fans in her Gandang Gabi Vice guesting that she will quit show business.
However, she explained to the TV host, "No, joke yun kasi parang nagtatanong kami sa mga... kasi may AlEmpoyers dun so nastress ako.
"Tapos parang sabi ko, 'Kayo ba ay nangangarap na... kasi pag love teams, kailangan magkatuluyan, magagalit ang fans.'
"Oo daw! Gusto daw magkatuluyan kami. Sabi ko, 'E, di, good for you. Marunong kayo magmahal."
When she was told that their love team should end up together for the sake of their career, she quipped, "Ay, buti na lang magki-quit na ako next year!"
Even though her statement was meant to be a joke, she admitted that she already thought of leaving showbiz many times in the past.
Alessandra recalled, "Every year, actually every two months, lagi ko sinasabing quit na ako next time kasi napapagod talaga ako sa mundo ng showbiz, sa kashowbizan ng mga tao.
"Kaya lang, nangingibabaw yung mahal kong umarte, e. Minsan yung kapalit noon, hayaan mo na, basta nagagawa mo yung gusto mo."
Alessandra also announced that her movie with Empoy has already earned P230 million in more than two weeks since its July 19 premiere.
This rom-com movie directed by Sigrid Andrea Bernardo is Graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board.
“Sa lahat ng nagbigay ng chance na hindi dinedma yung pelikula dahil kami ni Empoy yung bida, yung binigyan niyo ng chance yung materyal, kasi yun lang naman ang ipinaglalaban ko ever since," said the 33-year-old actress.
PROUD MOM. Alessandra, who is called Alex by her family and close friends, is also happy knowing that her mom is proud of her latest achievement.
In fact, she still feels her mom's unwavering support for her, even though she resides in Italy.
Alex narrated, "Wala siyang ginawa kundi magsend sa akin ng magsend ng mga comments ng mga tao o fanart ng mga tao.
"Sobrang saya niya siguro na isa rin siya sa nagdasal and lagi naman siyang ganun.
"Hindi kasi ako marunong magdasal, e. Hindi ako marunong humingi, e. Puro thank you lang ako lagi pag nagdadasal ako. Wala talaga akong kayang hingin kundi laging feeling ko lahat ng meron ako, sobra pa.
"Pero meron pa palang mga taong nagke-care na mas deserve ni Alex ito. After twenty years, deserve niya ito."
When Boy asked Alessandra to face the giant mirror, she only had one wish.
Before turning emotional, she said, "Maibili ko ng ticket yung parents ko, pamilya ko, papunta dito para mapanuod nila yung pelikula ko."
When she returned to the couch with Empoy, her love team partner hugged her.
The Cornerstone actress then burst into tears and explained, "Parang siyempre, lahat ng tao, yung sana, mapanuod ng family ko.
"One day, gusto mo na kapag may ganitong moments, ito yung moments na forever mo siyang maalala kahit matanda ka na sana kasama mo yung pamilya mo."
"Ang lakas maka-OFW! Pero totoo, I'm an overseas Italian worker. Charot!"
Alex then turned to Empoy and told him, "Buti na lang nandiyan ka, you're more than enough!"
It was recently revealed that a follow-up AlEmpoy movie is already in the works.
