Nene Tamayo surprised everyone with her secret wedding to Anthony Flores Plamio. PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) interviewed with Nene at the premiere night of Shake, Rattle & Roll 8 in SM Megamall and asked her about married life.
Nene and Anthony were married last October 3, 2006 in civil rites. It was in the ABS-CBN show U Can Dance that Nene and Anthony met. Anthony was Nene's dance instructor and partner.
Now that she has already tied the knot, Nene talked about her major adjustments as a married woman.
"Mas magiging mature, mas magiging responsible. Hindi na ako yung easy-go-lucky. May partner na ako ngayon, mayroon na akong dapat intindihin na makakasama sa buhay," said the Pinoy Big Brother winner.
She then added, "Happy ako, contented. Sabi nga nila, once na dumating na sa buhay mo yung taong minamahal mo, yun yung napi-feel ko ngayon. Kaso nga lang, hindi kami magkasama ngayon. Nasa ibang bansa [si Anthony]. Alam kong kailangan niyang magtrabaho dun."
Anthony is working in Singapore as a dance instructor.
Nene admitted that she misses him dearly.
"Sa ngayon, marunong na akong makaramdam na may nami-miss ako. Dati, sobrang independent ako. Sabi ko kaya kong mabuhay," said Nene.
"Kaya nga ‘yung friends ko before sinasabi, lalake lang ‘yan. Babalik din ‘yun. Ngayon, naiintindihan ko na ‘pag may minamahal ka. ‘Pag malayo siya, mahirap. Ngayon ko lang na-realize. Before, hindi ko ‘yun alam.
"Para pa rin kaming mag-boyfriend talaga. Kasi nga, once a month lang kami nagkikita. ‘Pag uwi niya, four days lang, one week lang ‘yung maximum tapos babalik siya dun [sa Singapore]," added Nene.
Nene plays the role of the paranoid yaya of Nash Aguas in Shake, Rattle & Roll 8.
When asked what her dream role is, she replied, "Kahit one time, big time lang. Parang yung Alias [starring Jennifer Garner], CIA role. Action pero hindi siya hardcore. Yung mapapaisip ka. May crime tapos iso-solve mo, maa-amaze ka. More on tactics lang. Ayoko yung action na more on bombs. May mga action naman na hindi na kailangan ng paputok, hindi na kailangan ng pasabog. More on strategy, more on tactics. Yung substantial and exciting."
