Katya Santos describes her lovelife as “quiet and simple.”


She looked so poised while checking out the menu of Goodah! restaurant’s branch in Eastwood City Walk 2.

When PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) approached Katya Santos for an interview, “Anong tatanungin niyo sa akin,” she said, her eyes smiling.

We asked, “Kelan ka ulit magiging visible?”

Her response: “Hindi lang kayo nanonood ng TV…”

The VIVA hot babe has been bagging parts in ABS-CBN soaps since 2010.

“Nasa Juanita Banana ako dati, nag-Maria la del Barrio rin, at yung huli ay Mundo Man Ay Magunaw.

And the characters she plays?

She replied, “Lagi napupunta sa kontrabida [ang] roles ako, e. Pero okay lang sa ‘kin, ako naman ay napaka-flexible, e.

“Kung ano ibigay mong role, okay lang kasi, for me, I don’t really… Parang hindi ko masyadong… hindi ako masyadong apektado ke mabait, ke masama.

“Basta as long as it’s work, as long as maganda yung role, tatanggapin ko siya.

“Wala problema.”

Does she have a dream kontrabida role?

“Actually, nagawa ko na lahat ng pinakamasamang kontrabida role.

“Ano pa?

“Pumapatay… Pumatay na rin ako ng mga tao…

“Oo, thriller… Siguro thriller… Yun ang hindi ko pa masyadong… yun ang wala pa ko, e, yung horror.”


REUNION OF THE HOT BABES. Her eyes lit up at the mention of Hot Babes—a popular all-girl group back in the early 2000s.

Katya’s batch mates were Maui Taylor, Andrea del Rosario, Jen Rosendahl, Gwen Garci, Myles Hernandez, Kristine Jaca, Hazel Cabrera, and Sheree.

And up to now, “We hang out once in a while. I mean like every week.

“Okay kami lahat, magkakasama pa rin kami super, kaya wala kaming nagiging problema.”

When they’re together, “we drink,” but their conversation topics are no longer about boys and career.

“Matured na rin lahat kaya mga anak na ang pinag-uusapan nila, so mga pamilyado na rin yung iba.”

Given the chance, “We wanted to have a reunion show,” the former child star mentioned.

“One-time show lang naman siya, so, we are inviting all the past, ah, talagang old members talaga na first batch of Viva Hot Babes, na kahit nasa ibang bansa na pauuwiin namen para, alam mo yun, celebration talaga.”

Lastly, is she happy where she is now?

“I’m happy,” she answered twice.

“But I’m still waiting for another big break.

“But now I am happy and I am contented of what I have.

“Iba-iba naman kasi sa atin, pero kung ano man dumadating sa 'ken, masaya ako.”

Her goal: “Of course naman I want do a lot of movie, soap opera, kung ano man… gusto ko pa magkaroon ng mga more projects.”
