NO, THANKS. Sa naturang presscon din in-announce ng managerni Judy Ann na si Alfie Lorenzo dapat sana'y surprise birthday party ng ABS-CBN at Star CinemaProductions para kay Mother Lily. Pero tinanggihan na raw ito ng Regal matriarch.

"No naman," depensa ni Mother Lily. "Because I want to makeit very simple. Ayoko na ng malaking party. Wala namang party. It's just a simplecelebration with my family," paliwanag ng film producer.

Wala naman daw siyang sama ng loob o galit sa ABS-CBN at StarCinema kaya ngayon pa lang ay tinanggihan na niya umano'y surprise partypara sa kanya.

"Siyempre naman, mahal ko rin si Gabby Lopez, ‘no?"

"I DON'T LIKE ANGEL'S MANAGER." Nagkita na ba sila ni Angel Locsin pagkatapos ng isyutungkol sa kontrata ng young actress sa Regal?

"Well, I haven't seen her but I just feel that I release herbecause I wanted her to grow. But I'm sorry to say that I don't like her manager[Becky Aguila] because she is a liar. If it comes to place to sue her,definitely, if I ever file an injunction, matatalo ang Star Cinema. But I don'twant to do that for the sake of ABS-CBN and Gabby Lopez. Pero hindi ako okeydoon sa manager. Basta Angel, I have nothing against her. She just follows hermanager," pahayag ni Mother Lily.

So, okey lang sa kanya ang movie na gagawin ni Angel withPiolo Pascual under Star Cinema?

"Well, of course. Kaya lang, there are times when I read inthe papers na her lawyer always say na tapos na ang contract, napipikon ako.Kasi I look stupid, e. Di ba, parang hindi...sana nagpapasalamat na lang sila inprint. Although, Angel sent me a flower and say thank you for everything naman,e.

"Well, she will always be my daughter. Siyempre ang mga anak, nakakagawa ng kasalanan. But I don'tbelieve her manager. That's what I told Malou Santos. Sinabi ko na kayMalou, e, I only released her because of Gabby Lopez. I want our businessrelationship, and as friend, we'll always be there na it cannot be broken. That'swhy I have to sacrifice for a sue case."

Naniniwala ba si Mother Lily sa kasabihan na sacrifice isthe key to paradise?

"Yeah, I will have so many blessings in my life. Baka Imight not have blessed this, I may not have Angel Locsin. But ano, e, angdaming blessing na binigay ni Lord sa akin. Now, I have learned a lot and forthis is just the beginning of my life, and I also wanted to change myself to abetter me."

Totoo bang sinabi niya na bilang kapalit ng kontrata ni Angelsa Regal ay hihilingin niya sa Star Cinema na ipahiram din sa kanya angbankable male stars ng nabanggit na film outfit?

"No naman," sagot ni Mother Lily. "There is no exchangedeal. Only, it's just a proposal. If ever they will not grant, sorry. Okey lang.Just let God handle everything. Marami namang bagay na hindi mo makukuha.Marami ring bagay na makukuha mo. Hindi naman lahat makukuha."

Hindi raw siya magtatampo sa Star Cinema kapag hindi siya sa pagbibigyan sa kanyang kahilingan.

"Of course not. I cannot argue with success," pagtatapos niMother Lily.
