Dingdong Dantes waxed enthusiastic when a reporter asked him if it was okay with him to appear as a guest in Marian Rivera's Darna.
"Bakit hindi?" he exclaimed. "Gusto ko 'yong tipong mababangga na lang din niya ako sa langit, kahit Sgt. Ewan, parang ganun lang."
For a few days, Dingdong's TV series with Rhian Ramos, Stairway To Heaven, topped the primetime ratings game, beating the top-rating fantaserye Darna.
Although this made the 29-year-old actor happy, he said he didn't want it to appear that his show was competing with another Kapuso program.
"Ayaw ko naman sanang lumabas that we're competing against them because we're on the same block, on the same network. Nandito kami para suportahan ang isa't isa, much more na si Darna [Marian] pa ang susuportahan ko," said Dingdong during the press launch of his newest partnership with National Book Store called "Project Aklat" last November 26.
Dingdong further explained his support for the show of his rumored girlfriend. He said, "Ang suporta at pag-ibig ko diyan, e, sobrang kakaiba 'yan. So I'm happy for her success. Para sa akin, let's not put any issues kung sino ang natalo nino because what's important is we're doing good for ourselves at para sa network."
REUNION PROJECT. Dingdong and Marian are rumored to have a reunion project in the remake of one of the installments of the Koreanovela Endless Love—Autumn In My Heart, Summer Scent, and Winter Sonata.
However, the actor said that they might have to wait for the end of their current TV projects.
Dingdong said, "Ako kasi, hindi ko talaga alam ang istorya ng Endless Love. Tingnan natin. Malay mo, it's one of the options lang. Malay mo, baka magbago pa. It still won't be immediate kasi siya, meron pa siyang Show Me Da Manny. Ako, meron pa akong Family Feud."
