From a surrogate mother, Claudine plays a stagemom who insists on sending her 8-year-old daughter from one beauty pageant to another in this Saturday’s episode of her drama anthology. Playing the part of her daughter is child actress Cruzita who was best known for her role as Marian Rivera’s child in Marimar and who is now part of the GMA-7 telefantasya Panday Kids.
A frustrated beauty queen herself, Elsa (Claudine) passes on to her daughter the dream which she never got to realize after getting pregnant at an early age.
Amidst the preparation for yet another pageant, the child’s biological father (Bobby Andrews) appears and starts claiming custody of the child. Quenie (Cruzita) ended up losing the pageant which frustrates Elsa even more. In a fit of rage, Elsa blames Quenie for the way her life has turned out to be which naturally hurts the child. Quenia runs away from home, and meets an unfortunate accident.
If and when Quenie wakes up will Elsa still get a second chance to make it right with her daughter?
The answer will be revealed this Saturday as Ms. Claudine Barretto brings to light another gripping drama performance. Directed by Soxie Topacio, this episode titled Stagemother also stars Candy Pangilinan and Sweet Ramos. Catch it tonight after Pinoy Records on GMA-7.
