Four days na lang at ise-celebrate na ni Ruffa Gutierrez angsunud-sunod na party and dinner for her birthday sa June 24. Pero bago ‘yan aymagkakaroon muna ng star-studded celebration si Ruffa sa The Buzz thisSunday sa ABS-CBN. Ise-celebrate niya rin ang kaarawan niya sa piling ng mgakababaihan at kabataang inabuso.

"For my birthday, I'll be visiting the abuse center thatTita Gina [de Venecia] put up for abused women and children. I'll be there onJune 28 and magsisimpleng salu-salo kami doon.

"And then, I'll be having a spa party given to me byMikaela, ang aking sponsor. Dra. [Vicki] Belo is throwing me a party. Tito BoyAbunda is also throwing me a dinner. So, I'm so touched na marami ang nagmamahal sa akin. Hindiko na kailangang gumastos for my birthday. Maraming nagbibigay sa akin ngdinner and party," very proud na sabi ni Ruffa nang makausap ng PEP (PhilippineEntertainment Portal).

THE ABUSED. Kahapon ay nag-renew naman ng kontrata si Ruffa with Avon products. Nabanggit ni Ruffa na sa kanyang cause napagtulong sa mga inabusong mga babae't mga bata, inspirasyon niya ang Hollywoodactress at kapwa niya Avon endorser na si Reese Witherspooon. Aside from beingone of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, honorary chairman din si Reeseng Avon Foundation, ang foundation for women's breast-cancer research andprevention of domestic violence against women, at longtime supporter ng mgaorganisasyon for child welfare and prevention of child abuse.

"Actually, I really look up to Reese Witherspoon as not onlya very good actress but as a womanwho's strong, dignified, and she believes in women's rights. And I can say in myown little way ganun din ako.

"As a matter of fact on June 28, I'll be visiting Haven.Nandun na rin ako last year. I celebrated my birthday with them last year atdahil, siyempre, ang mga abused women and abused children, malalapit ‘yan sa pusoko, kasi at one point in my life, I was also a victim of abuse.

"And I can say that it doesn't end there. Puwede namangbaguhin ang buhay mo and you can standup and face the world and start anew. And I can do it, I'm sure all the womenout there can do it as well. Kailangan lang nila ng aking prayers at akingtulong, nandito lang ako," pahayag pa ni Ruffa.

NO "GIMIK." With her job and participation in worthycauses, paano naman niya binibigyan ng oras ang sarili niya? Paano ba siyagumimik?

"Actually, hindi po nila ako pinagsasabihan because you canask my Mom. I now live with my Mom andDad at talagang hindi ako lumalabas sa gabi. Wala silang problema sa akin, youknow. And sometimes, I'm always in the house kapag wala akong work. Siya pa ang nagsasabi sa akin, ‘Ruffa, lumabas ka naman.' Nagiginghomebody na ako.

"I just stay home or go to Belo or go to the gym. Nagdyi-gymna rin ako ngayon. ‘Tsaka wala naman kasing interesting sa labas, di ba?

"I mean, if you go out, mapapaaway ka lang. Baka ma-blog kapa. Matsitsismis ka. Wala namang cute na anybody around."

YILMAZ MENTIONED. Ano nga pala ang birthday wishniya?

"Ang wish ko is good health. After what happened to Kuya Rudy [Fernandez] last week, siyempre,lahat ng buong industriya, lahat ng buong Pilipinas, nalungkot. So, I thinkkahit ano pa ang mangyari sa buhay mo with all the success, withall the beautiful things that are coming your way, I think importante pa rinyun talagang good health.

"So, sana yung good health for me and for my family. Sana makapiling ko rin ang pamilya ko many,many years longer and more success for my career and also for my kids."

"Actually, kagabi nabuhay na naman siya dahil sa PEP na‘yan. Ba't daw nandun ang name niya? (click here for related article)"

Ayon sa report, si Ruffa naman ang nagbanggit ng pangalan niYilmaz kaya siguro nag-react naman ang kanyang Turkish husband.

"Basta, basta. Ayaw ko munang magsalita. Ewan ko nga, e.Nalaman niya pa rin. Nakakarating sa kanya everything kaya ayoko munangmag-comment."

Sign lang ‘yan na hanggang ngayon hindi pa rin nakaka-moveon si Yilmaz sa kanya.

"Basta for me, he's still the father of my kids kaya dapatmagkaroon kami ng isang magandang peaceful relationship," pagtatapos ni Ruffa.
