Superbusy TV host-actress Ruffa Gutierrez was not able to watch the premiere of her brother Richard Gutierez's movie When I Met U. So, when asked what she will do on February 14, she replied, "Hay naku, baka manood ako ng When I Met U."
Valentine's Day for The Buzz host won't be any different as far as her hectic schedule goes. "May promo kami [para sa Ruffa and Ai]—may Wowowee kami at saka Entertainment Live! Last year, kami nina Lorin and Venice ang magkasama. Ako ang binigyan nila ng flowers. Napakaboring naman ng buhay," related Ruffa, who now has three shows a week—Ruffa and I, The Buzz, and I Love Betty La Fea. (Click here to read related article)
What if someone asks her for a date?
"Well, I'm free," Ruffa smiled. But she qualified, "Tingnan natin kung worth my time ba yun 'no? Di ba, sa sobrang busy, you have to choose naman the people you go out with."
Ruffa said she'd rather spend time with her lovely daughters, Lorin and Venice; and with her friends or by herself, rather than go out with people she doesn't personally know.
"Choosy na ako, diyusko," the TV host-actress said in jest. "Punta na lang ako ng Belo o kaya punta na lang ako para manood ng sine or spend some time with my friends. Kasi, when you're working so hard, 'yong konting time mo, siyempre, ilalaan mo na lang sa talagang things na gusto mong gawin. So, kung hindi mo naman type ang kasama mo, dyusko, itutulog ko na lang."
ON HER PLANNED BOOK. During the interview with Ruffa yesterday, February 12, PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) found out that she was postponing her plan to write her book. (Click here to read related article)
Apparently, her former husband Yilmaz Bektas changed his mind and warned Ruffa not to continue her plans.
"Doon siya, nabuwisit sa libro, 'no! Akala ko nga pumayag," said the celebrity mom.
How did he find out that she was planning to write her book?
Ruffa answered, "Ewan ko sa kanya. Kasi nga, na-pick up ng Turkish press, kaya siya naman ang ginugulo-gulo doon ng mga CNN, Turks, mga newspapers doon.
"Baka naman tulog siya nang binigyan niya ako ng go-signal, half asleep. So ngayon, ayaw ko na siyang pag-usapan dahil I wanna keep the peace. Di ba, kailangan talaga in writing, i-tape record ang voice, ang time and date. Nakakaloka!"
As in her previous statements, Ruffa maintained that she would not divulge anything shocking about her life in the book. "It's gonna be a fun book!" she had promised. (Click here to read related article) And so, she was puzzled over Yilmaz's change of mind.
Although disappointed about having to shelve her book, Ruffa remains positive now that she has a new project, the morning show Ruffa and Ai.
"Ang dami ko na ngang naiisip na title and everything, 'no?" she regretfully said. "Buti na lang may Ruffa and Ai ako. Mabait ang Diyos, buti na lang na-cancel ang book ko, biglang mayroon akong bagong show."
Would she still write the book in the future?
"Huwag na, I'll write na lang a children's book," Ruffa laughed.
