A previously unseen footage interview of Angel Locsin's mother finally saw the light of day yesterday, August 11, at Startalk.
The video was taken last year, on Angel's birthday which she celebrated with a party for a foundation giving free eye check-up and a surprise gathering tendered by her fans.
Angel and her mother Emma Colminares had a warm reunion. The cameras of the now-defunct GMA-7 showbiz talk show, S-Files, even caught them hugging each other tightly during a tender moment, unmindful of all the spectators present at the party.
"Hindi ko akalain na magka-anak ako ng ganyan," said Angel's mother when she obliged to be interviewed by S-Files during the said occasion.
"Dati nung maliit siya, mahilig siya pag bumibisita ako, mahilig siyang mag-entertain," she endearingly recalled. "Habang naghihintay ‘yong [guest] sinasayawan niya, kinakantahan niya. Pinapanood ko siya. Masaya ako sa nakikita ko."
"Sana mas tumagal pa nang tumatagal 'yung tagumpay mo. Ikaw pa rin ‘yong dating si Angel," wished Mrs. Colmenares.
But as it turned out, the interview never had the chance to be shown to the public. It was shelved indefinitely on Angel's own request not to air it. The reason behind Angel's appeal is not clear up to this day since she never gave any concrete reason to the show's staff.
Angel's family background, particularly details on her true relationship with her mother, continues to mystify a lot of people, even showbiz insiders.
