"Wala siya this Christmas," says Nene Tamayo, talking about her husbandAnthony Plamio. "Nasa Singapore siya pero New Year 'andito na siya...Actually, hindi pa talaga kami nagsasama ng matagal, parangboyfriend-girlfriend pa rin... Mga one week lang siya dito, balik ulisiya doon."
In an interview with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) on December24, Nene said that she missed Anthony who works as a dance instructorin Singapore.
But the Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) grand winner did thenext best thing: she spent Christmas with her family. "Kasama ko mgakapatid ko, uwi kami sa St. Monique. Doon kami magse-celebrate—videoke,kainan, food trip, lahat-lahat na!" St. Monique Valais is the locationof the house that Nene won from PBB.
Although the newly weds are spending time apart, Nene tells PEP howthey're preparing for a future together. The biggest being: Anthony isplanning to buy the house adjacent to Nene's St. Monique Valais unit.
"Kasi duplex ‘yon, 'di ba? ‘Yong katabi noon, kukunin na rin niya paramalaki. ‘Yong binigay sa 'kin isang unit lang, ‘yong half, so ‘yongother half, siya ‘yong kumuha. Naka-reserve dapat ‘yon sa 'kin."
She laughs, "Akala nga ng iba si Bob [dela Cruz] ‘yong kukuha!" Former PBB housemate Bob was once linked to Nene.
Aside from investing in real estate, the couple also plan to have anaddition to their household by 2007. She says they want to have theirfirst baby by then.
"Next year! Kaya ako biglang nagpakasal kasi ‘yong friend ko nagpakasalsiya at 28/29 pero hirap silang magka-baby ngayon. Ang sabi ng doctorpinakamagandang age daw mag-buntis ang babae 25-26. Pag 28 pataasmahirap na. So sabi ko hahabol ako," she says, again with a laugh.
She adds: "Gusto ko, panganay boy, tapos sumunod girl, para dalawa. Paglalake, Zane Anthony [ang pangalan]. 'Zane' kasi meaning noon‘beloved.' ‘Yong husband ko gusto 'Anthony,' so [pag pinagsama]‘beloved Anthony.'
"Pag babae naman Mayesha Jean. ‘Yong 'Mayesha,' ‘one who loves greatly,' tapos ‘Jean' kasi name ko ‘tsaka name ng husband ko."The Shake, Rattle, and Roll 8 star says she plans tostick by her New Year's resolution. "Maging more mature kasi mayroon na'kong partner. ‘Yong iba naman kasi nagawa ko na e, patuloy pa rin ngmga ginagawa ko dati—na kung ano sinimulan ko, tapusin ko."
