During the February 24 grand presscon of GMA-7's first-ever "kantaserye" titled Diva, Rufa Mae Quinto entertained members of the press with her performance of "Dancing Queen," complete with lifting stunts.
When PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked Rufa Mae to describe her character Lady on the said show, the sexy comedienne said, "First time kong maging bida-kontrabida. Salbahe ako kay Regine [Velasquez] kasi diva-divahan ako. Gusto kong maging diva, pero wala akong masyadong talent. Meron kaming mga away, talagang maldita ako. Kulang na lang mag-upakan kami. Ghost singer ko siya. Excited ako sa role ko kasi isa akong model na wala masyadong talent pero diva-divahan."
Viewers will be able to watch Rufa Mae Quinto, Regine Velasquez, Mark Anthony Fernandez, TJ Trinidad, Glaiza de Castro and many others in this primetime TV show starting Monday, March 1.
DREAM WEDDING. Rufa Mae is firm in saying that she will not leave behind her showbiz career even though she already has plans to settle down with her fiancé. She still refuses to reveal his identity but she did tell PEP that he is involved in the real estate business here in the Philippines and in the United States.
What is P-chi's (Rufa Mae's nickname) dream wedding?
"Gusto ko civil wedding, kami-kaming family lang para simple at tahimik. Para walang pressure sa akin at relaxed ako. Sa reception, dun na invited yung press... Kumbaga, may isang bonggang party," she said.
Will there still be a church wedding?
"Kasi Christian ako tapos siya Catholic kaya civil na lang."
Does she already have a target date for her wedding?
"Kasi mag-e-election na, e, kaya pahuhupain muna namin para hindi busy ang mga tao. At para makakuha ng ninong at ninang na may bujey [gay lingo for budget]!" says Peachy, eliciting laughter from the media.
Is the sexy actress already prepared to have babies?
"Hindi pa," replied. "I have a long way to go. Go go go! Natatakot ako noon pero ngayon, hindi yun ang fear ko. Ayoko pa lang talaga. Kasi si Jaya, 36 years old siya when she had Sab [her daughter Sabriya]. Marami akong natutunan sa kanya...na 'wag masyadong atat."
LAST FHM COVER? When asked regarding her latest pictorial for the February 2010 cover of FHM, Rufa Mae revealed that this will be her last time to pose for the leading men's magazine.
"Pangatlong beses ko na [on FHM]. Wala na 'kong pose na maiaalay. Yung first time ko, year 2001, standing pa lang ako. Nung second ko, naka bend na ako. Nung third, naka-spread na ako. Parang ano pa ba?"
