PRESS STATEMENT FROM GMA-7:
"Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid faces her most challenging masquerade--in drag as she competes in Club Love’s Ultimate Showkla 2011 in GMA’s romantic-comedy series, I ♥ You Pare.
"This week, competition is heating up between Tonette and Vodka (Paolo Ballesteros) as the contest for Club Love’s grandest spectacle nears. Both drag queens wanted the title so badly most especially Vodka who will fight tooth and nail just to win the crown. Will he succeed in sabotaging Tonette’s performance? Whose presentation will reign supreme?
"Meanwhile, Tonette and Kenneth’s friendship grows stronger when Mama Marita (Celia Rodriguez) sends them to La Union for a business meeting. He even makes a side trip to Vigan to find the woman he met and unintentionally kissed in a bar. Completely surprised, Tonette feels doubly guilty of lying to the man she secretly loves.
"Back in Manila, Kenneth gets an unexpected visit from Ramon (Ian Veneracion). Unfortunately for Tonette, confessing everything to Kenneth will have to take a backseat after she learns that the man she accidentally ran over in Vigan is Kenneth’s brother. This complicates her feelings for Kenneth further and forces her to continue her disguise in Club Love.
"Meanwhile, viewers are continuously impressed by Regine and Dingdong’s range of emotions in the series which not only excite their adoring fans and supporters but also elicit rave reviews from audiences and critics alike.
"I ♥ You Pare airs weeknights right after Dwarfina on GMA Telebabad."
