Ruffa Gutierrez looked lovely as she walked downthe red carpet during the Metro Manila Film Festival Gabi ng Parangal last December 27 while wearing a RajoLaurel creation. She revealed that she was a bit sad, however, since the awardsnight of the 34th Metro Manila Film Festival meant that their days of promotingthe sequel of Desperadas was about to end soon. The MMFF is scheduled to end by January 7.
"Desperadas 2 is very controversial because of all the starsinvolved but among ourselves, we really get along. Now that the movie is over,I leave it with a heavy heart because ma-mi-miss ko yung mga kasamahan ko samovie."
Are they planning to do Desperadas 3? "Why not? Pero sana naman sa Part3, hindi na ko makulong! Sana may high-powered attorney na ako na puwede akongipagtanggol," she quipped, referring to her character Isabella,who has been sent to jail in the two installments of this Regal Entertainmentmovie.
Did her two young daughters, Lorin and Venice, watch this comedy film even though it has some sexual undertones?"They watched the movie but I made sure that in the scenes when they were onthe bed or there were maseselan scenes, I made sure that the yayas wouldcover their eyes. But they're really like that. Everytime they pass by EDSA andthey see Piolo [Pascual] without a shirt or Dingdong [Dantes] without a shirt,they always cover their eyes because they're very conservative."
Are her kids showing signs of entering show business in the future? "I think sobecause every time they hear the song nina Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz,"A Very Special Love," kanta sila nang kanta, with feelings pa ha! So they really,really love the song. Baka i-enroll ko uli sa Trumpets..."
Will it be okay with her if they do enter the world of showbiz? "Siguro tama namuna ang theater saka commercials and photo shoots but I'll really encouragethem na tapusin muna ang pag-aaral nila."
She then told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) how she spent her Christmasthis year. "I spent it with my family, nag-Noche Buena lang kami sa bahay andwe had a party until 4 in the morning. Nagpa-cater kami and sama-sama kaminagbukas ng gifts. We had friends who came to visit us. It was a very smallfamily affair, nag-bonding kaming magkakapatid."
Did Yilmaz contact her during the holiday season? "He sent me an email and hesaid, ‘Merry Christmas Ruffy and Happy New Year. He's back to calling me Ruffy,hindi na Mama Smurf," she joked.
At the time she and her former husband were trading verbal tirades at eachother through the media, the Turkish businessman referred to her in textmessages as Mama Smurf.
She continued: "He called Lorin and Venice [their two daughters] and nag-usapsila for an hour."
Ruffa also happily informed PEP that viewers will still be seeing her asDaniella since I Love Betty La Fea will continue airing on ABS-CBN untilJuly 2009. The primetime show, starring Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz, wassupposed to end on April but management decided to extend it for its goodperformance.
