Nancy Castiglione says she has more important things to do than get involved in other people’s love life.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) had the chance to talk with Nancy yesterday, April 21, when she took part in a viral video to promote a new DSLR camera to be launched by Olympus.
Nancy became a controversial figure when she was linked to the breakup of Hayden Kho Jr. and Dr. Vicki Belo.
When asked if she had spoken with Hayden recently, Nancy simply said no.
What is her reaction to eyewitness accounts relating they were seen together on several occasions?
“Let’s not go there. Let’s talk about the camera na lang,” she said firmly.
Dr. Vicki Belo had tweeted that she is giving permission to Nancy to openly date Hayden. What would Nancy tell Dr. Vicki if they happen to see each other again?
“I don’t know if our paths will cross, to be honest.”
WITH NACHO. Is Nancy still with Nacho Dominguez, the father of her twin boys?
“Yes, he’s coming here [to the studio] later. That’s why I can’t really comment. When I heard about the thing, I didn’t want to talk kasi wala iyon, e.
"It’s just not my priority. I don’t have the time for stuff like that.
“I heard stuff but my priority is really my work and my kids. I didn’t really make it pansin. I spoke once and I think it was enough.”
Last February, members of the press tried to interview Nancy about the controversy but she did not grant any interviews at that time.
She recalled, “I was hosting an event for Armscor. I said hi to everyone but I couldn’t stop ’cause nag-quick change lang ako and then I went up the stage so I didn’t really have time to talk to anyone.”
Were you trying to avoid the press then?
“No naman…if I’m trying to avoid then bye [motioning as if she’s about to leave],” she said jokingly.
How does Nacho feel about Nancy being linked to the Hayden Kho-Vicki Belo breakup?
“Wala naman. He knows that I go to work and I have cocktails with clients and then I go home. We’re very, very good.”
Nancy also pointed out that she would rather focus on her twin boys, Matteo and Joaquin, who have already started going to school.
“The problem is that I’m not really aware of everything that’s been said ’cause it’s not important to me. I wasn’t really affected and I’m not that active [in showbiz].”
“I have more important things…I have 3-year-old boys, di ba? They started school na so I have to worry about them crying when they go to school…”
She happily narrated that they recently had a Toy Story-theme party for her sons who celebrated their 3rd birthday last March 25.
“Cesca Litton was one of the guests…Cheska Garcia and Doug Kramer couldn’t make it because their daughter was sick that day.”
Nancy also revealed how she became an endorser for Olympus.
“My interest in photography started quite a few years ago when I was scuba diving. I was interested in underwater photography and after that, na-addict ako so I started this hobby.”
WORKING AS A BROKER. For more than a year, Nancy has been busy studying for her new job—working as a broker for a Dutch company.
“I’ve been into finance for over a year and I still have a lot to learn. I work with the finance industry as a money broker so parang, Wall Street.
"May sigawan, agawan ng presyo. My office is in Makati and the company that I work for is a Dutch company.”
How did she get into the world of finance?
“I took up Political Science in college. When I came back to the Philippines, I took care of my kids. Hands on naman ako.
"When they turned two, I decided that they were old enough for me to start working again. I wasn’t ready to go back to showbiz and I wanted to try something new.
“A friend of mine introduced me to the industry and I sat in the office and I got excited kasi ang gulo!
"There was shouting and hindi siya 9-5 job lang na tahimik. It’s very competitive so it matches my personality.”
Does she miss showbiz?
“I miss the people. My first love is really modeling and hosting.
"I really miss doing stuff like that but ang mga dramas—I enjoyed that also but I’m really enjoying my new career.
"I’m focused on my family and my kids and my new career.”
