"Ate Shawie [Sharon Cuneta, KC's mom] really trusts Richard, so ayoko naman na he will break that trust because si KC is not just an ordinary girl. You do that to ordinary girls, but not to KC," says Ruffa Gutierrez about the rumored romance between her brother Richard and KC Concepcion.

Handang-handa na si Ruffa Gutierrez sa kanyang bagong role bilang kontrabida sa buhay ng bidang si Betty sa I Love Betty La Fea, ang bagong teleserye sa ABS-CBN na pinagbibidahan ni Bea Alonzo. Kuntodo outfit talaga si Ruffa sa kanyang role bilang si Daniella sa I Love Betty La Fea.

"Me in real life, I'm bubbly. I'm full of life and masasabi ko si Daniella naman very ambisyosa. She wants to stay on top. So, hindi ako ganun sa totoong buhay. Kumbaga, what you se is what you get," lahad ni Ruffa sa PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) sa solo presscon na ibinigay ng ABS-CBN para sa kanya last Wednesday, July 30.

BENCH FASHION SHOW CONTROVERSY. Nagsalita rin si Ruffa tungkol sa kontrobersiya na kinasasangkutan ng younger brother niya na si Richard Gutierrez kaugnay ng Bench denim and underwear fashion na Blackout last July 25. Inireklamo kasi ng kanilang ina na si Annabelle Rama ang diumano'y "unfair" exposure ni Richard sa naturang fashion show ng Bench.

"Wala akong reaksiyon kasi wala naman ako doon nung time na ‘yon, and kung may dapat mag-react ay yun yung mga managers. And I think nag-react na yung ibang mga managers. Hindi naman ako manager. ‘Tsaka I'm with Kisses & Co. and I'm alone there. Buti na lang, di ba?" tawa niya.

"I really don't know what happened," patuloy ni Ruffa. "I think kung may problema man, lahat ‘yan maaayos din naman. Maliit lang ang industriya at lahat naman nadadaan sa magandang pag-uusap.

"Like I said, my mom is sometimes like to be a cannon ball. She'll react and then the next day, ‘Oh, really? Sinabi ko ba ‘yon?' ‘Ma, you said that.' ‘Oh, I'm just telling the truth.' ‘But sometimes you have to lie. You can't tell the truth all the time because sometimes maybe people will get hurt, di ba?'

"So being the emotional mom as she is, sometimes people portray her as the kontrabida but she's like that. With Richard naman, he has two managers— Douglas Quijano and my mom. And it was Tito Dougs that was in charge of Bench. So maybe you should ask Tito Dougs."

Sa tingin ba niya may naging pagkukulang ang Bench sa nangyari?

"Wala po akong alam kaya I really don't know. Basta for me, ang masasabi ko with Richard, he's the most cool person I know. He just works hard. He gives his best and you know, I support him all the way. At si Chard naman, walang kaaway. If you're saying na he's fighting with other people, hindi ganun.

"Lahat kami dito sa industriya magkakaibigan. As a matter of fact, a lot of stars in that fashion show have also helped our charitable organizations, our foundations, so lahat po talaga kami magkakaibigan.

"Ngayon, kung minsan ang mga managers nagkakaroon ng mga pag-uusap, but that's normal. Kasi ‘yan naman talaga trabaho ng manager, na protektahan ang talent nila at protektahan ang nararapat na sa tingin nila ay dapat sa talent nila. But with us naman, we are all friends, so okay lang," pahayag ni Ruffa.

Wala bang isyu kay Richard doon sa nangyari sa Bench fashion show?

"Richard is so young. Richard is 24 years old," sabi ni Ruffa. "He has his whole life ahead of him. He's so blessed and lahat ng show niya nagre-rate. Marami siyang pelikula and I'm sure very thankful si Richard sa lahat ng mga fans niya na sumusuporta sa kanya. And with a movie of course, with KC [Concepcion].

"So, para sa akin, hindi mo masasabi ang isang event para masabing sukatan kung dapat bang hangaan ang isang tao or hindi, hindi po ganun. Napakaraming highlights na sa murang edad ni Richard, hindi lang sa isang show mame-measure lahat yun."

Sa palagay ba niya naapi ang kapatid niya?

"Ma [malay], hindi ko nga alam," giit niya. "Bakit kaapi-api ba si Richard? Si Richard hindi puwedeng maapi kasi matapang siya. Marunong siyang mag-martial arts, so never siyang magiging api."

Pero bakit yun ang naging pakiramdam ng kanilang ina after the show?

"Siyempre, my mom is a mom and she's a manager. So her opinion is different from what we, stars, feel. Siyempre, ganyan. Si Tita Lolit [Solis] nga emotional din, di ba? Kaya nga she really fights for her alaga. She's very passionate on what she does. It's the same with my mom.

"And you know, a lot of people love her for that. Kami naman bilang mga anak niya, we just make sure that we give her vitamins and minerals to calm her down. We love her. I mean, a lot of people want to be in our shoes kasi meron silang nanay na pinuprotektahan sila," saad ni Ruffa.

Kumusta na si Richard?

"Okey naman siya. He's busy working. Hindi naman na-affect si Richard. Ako nga na babae hindi naa-affect, siya pa? You know for him, everything is just cool and we have managers and sila ang na-affect, di ba? Pero kami hindi."

RICHARD-KC RELATIONSHIP. Naniniwala ba si Ruffa na mag-on na si Richard at si KC Concepcion?

"Alam mo ang kapatid ko na ‘yan, since they left for Greece...silang dalawa ni KC, feeling ko may usapan sila, e. Na huwag nang magkuwento sa akin because I remember before, si KC talagang close na close kami. Parang kaibigan ko siya, parang kapatid ko siya.

"But ever since they left for Greece, ni ha, ni ho walang comment. Sabi ko, ‘Are you guys getting along? Kumusta na si Chard?' Ay, ang bait-bait ni Ritchie Paul [their younger brother]. Laging si Ritchie Paul ang sumasagot sa akin. Sabi ko, hindi si Ritchie Paul ang tinatanong ko, hindi yung chaperone. Si Chard ang tinatanong ko."

Feeling ba niya na-betray na siya ni KC as a friend?

"Oo, parang feeling ko binetray ako for Chard!" natatawa niyang sagot. "Kaya hindi ko na alam ang nangyayari sa kanila. But be sure ‘pag nakakita ako ng picture nilang dalawa na sweet na sweet, kinikilig din ako."

Kilala ni Ruffa nang husto sina Richard at KC at madali niyang masasabi kung meron nang relasyon ang dalawa. Ano sa palagay ni Ruffa ang totoong estado ng relasyon nina Richard at KC?


"Alam mo si Richard, napakamalihim na bata ‘yan, e. Hindi siya talaga nagko-confide about his personal life. So, I always try to ask the people around him na talagang ang pipi rin. Ayaw talagang magsalita.

"So based sa nakikita ko at alam ko, I think they were able to really bond in Greece. Dahil siyempre ang katabi ko lang doon ay tubig, ang hangin, ang very romantic ng atmosphere. You have two beautiful people together. So, I think na talagang nakapag-bond sila."

Nakikita ba niya na sobrang in love na si Richard kay KC?

"E, kasi kapag si KC ang topic, nag-i-sparkle ang mga mata niya, e. They didn't have to say anything. Nakikita na lang ‘yan. I think action speaks louder than words. Ang maa-advice ko lang sa kanila, dapat career din muna, di ba?"

Base sa teaser ng first movie nina KC at Richard na For The First Time, parang bigay na bigay na silang dalawa sa isa't isa. Ano ang masasabi ni Ruffa rito?

"They are always making subuan, di ba?" natatawang sabi ni Ruffa. "Ako nga wala ngang sinusubo sa akin, e, my gosh! Kasi siguro nahihiya sila or ano'ng usapan nila. Basta kahit na anong text ka kay Chard, hindi siya sumasagot; pati si KC. I don't know kung tinapon na nila yung mga phones nila sa dagat!" biro niya.

"Pero baka sa trailer lang ‘yon. Hindi ko naman alam sa totoong buhay kung bumigay na nga sila. Pero sa tinign ko naman, may control si KC sa kanyang emotions. Basta ako, boto sa kanila as partners sa big screen and in real life."

Paano kung paiyakin ni Richard si KC in real life?

"E, di aawayin ko siya! Bakit niya paiiyakin yung bata, di ba? Siyempre I'm a girl also, ‘no? And Ate Shawie [Sharon Cuneta, KC's mom] really trusts Richard, so ayoko naman na he will break that trust because si KC is not just an ordinary girl. You do that to ordinary girls, but not to KC."

Sino ba ang ordinary girl na nakarelasyon ni Richard?

"In fairness naman, lahat naman ng ipinapakilala sa amin ni Richard, mababait lahat and talagang napapamahal sa amin."

What about ang last girlfriend ni Richard na si Georgina Wilson?

"Si Georgina at Richard have their own separate lives now. And they're good friends. Ang problema naman sa kanila yung distance," sabi ni Ruffa.
