Jericho Rosales and Carmen Soo appeared in The Buzz once again, and this time, the two stars of Kahit Isang Saglit looked closer and sweeter with one another than before. As host Ruffa Gutierrez remarked, "Parang yung guesting nila dito sa The Buzz, parang na feel ko na parang may nagbago. Parang mayroon silang kindatan at may lengguwahe din sila."
"So," co-host Cristy Fermin asked Carmen, "are you guys closer now?"
"Definitely closer than last week," Carmen revealed, much to the delight of the studio audience.
"Carmen, ang bilis noon, ha, isang linggo pa lang," quipped Echo.
Not minding Jericho since she can't understand Filipino, Carmen continued, "We've been close all this time."
Cristy, who said that the Kahit Isang Saglit trailer got her hooked, informed Jericho that people say their lives will change with the primetime drama's episode launch tomorrow. How does Echo take this?
"Hindi ko maintindihan ang nararamdaman ko kasi matagal na akong nawala o nabakante, so hindi ko alam ang magiging reaksyon ng tao, pero nararamdaman ko ang excitement. Nararamdaman ko din ang galak at ang tuwa nila na may mapapanood ulit sila."
Carmen, who looked clueless about what Echo was talking about and how the studio audience positively reacted to his words, only smiled. The receptive Echo offered, "Don't worry Carmen, I'll explain this later."
FEELING THE PRESSURE? Ruffa asked how Echo feels now that the show will finally air (tonight). Does Echo feel any pressure since this is his comeback TV drama? Will Jericho's fans see the same acting prowess during his heyday?
"Bukas kasi wala na ako magagawa, e," Jericho replied. "Pinakawalan ko na ‘yan. Nandiyan na, e. Pero naramdaman ko ang pressure noong ginagawa namin yung show as in. Pero ayoko magpaapekto kasi mahirap na madiskaril ako dahil iniisip ko ‘dapat magaling ako, dapat maganda...' Nagkaroon ako ng ganoong ugali dati na lahat gustong nasa kamay ko, e. This time, in my life, gusto ko, I wanna let go."
Pressure on his comeback show is one thing, but another kind of pressure—possibly romantic—seems to bug Echo. Cristy revealed that Cristine Reyes has a crush on him. Is he aware of this revelation?
"Nakakadyahe kasi," Echo admitted. At a loss for words, he was finally able to blurt out, "E, sabi ko nga na...maraming salamat."
Carmen, who looked kind of glad when Ruffa addressed her, might've thought that she was about to join the discussion. But first she invited everyone to watch the show.
And then Ruffa surprised her with a quick question. "Carmen, do you feel safe in Echo's arms? Does he take care of you in the set?"
"Oh, yes, definitely," Carmen answered. "He's great and takes care of me and make sure that I'm okay..."
Cristy interjected and asked Carmen to sing, "Hindi Ko Kayang Tanggapin" by April Boy Regino. Carmen obliged by singing a whole stanza of the song.
The audience cheered.
