Edu Manzano shares some details about lovelife of children

Hosting a talk show is on top of Edu Manzano’s wish list. He says, "’Yan ay isang genre kung saan I feel very comfortable at... Isa sa mga pinag-uusapan namin, yung isa sa mga nakakalimutan pag TV show host kayo, kailangang makinig ka, e. And then yun ang jump-off point mo, e. You become reactive..."


What would you do if one of your sons is gay?

Bulgar entertainment editor Janice Navida asked Edu Manzano this question at the mini-press conference for Game ‘N Go hosts last June 13.

In a serious tone, Edu began, “Well, siguro, gagawin ko yung... sasabihin ko sa kanya, ’Halika, biyahe tayo.’

“Dadalhin ko sa malayong lugar, kakausapin ko...’"

There was a brief pause before he continued, "’Tapos iiwanan ko… na wala siyang pocket money, na wala siyang [kahit] ano…

“G**o ka, a… sipain kita… ’Wag kang babalik sa bahay! Yung ganun.

"Pero bibigyan ko siya ng load para makapag-text back, ’Dad, ready na ko.’"

His response elicited chuckles from the small group that attended the luncheon.

But kidding aside, he said, “Actually, right now, you can’t tell anymore, di ba? Ang daming mga outside influences na talagang nag-e-exist ngayon sa mundong ito.

“I would take my chance in whatever way."

What’s important to him is having quality time with his three kids— Luis, 31, Amanda (Addie), 16, and Lorenzo, 14.

The TV5 host added, "You know, I’m just happy being with them. Lagi kong sinasabi yun. You think that sometimes money brings you great joy.

“Kita mo si Joey, trabaho nga pero he travels kasi it gives him much joy.

“Right now, ako, being with my children. Suwerte nga ako, my children are with me. So I derive such pleasure sa ’king mga anak.”

Does he meddle in his children’s lovelife?

His answer: "Ngayon, yung mga bata, especially yung anak kong si Addie, masuwerte ako, mabait yung boyfriend niya, as in mabait.

“Pag kumakain kami sa labas, laging kasama yung lalaki. ’Tapos laging naming ino-order, steak para may matulis na kutsilyo palagi at makikita niya, di ba. And siya din ganun,” he said, half-joking.

When it comes to his eldest, Edu said he’s glad because the Deal or No Deal host seems to be compatible with present girlfriend Jennylyn Mercado.

“Si Luis kasi, any free time niya, nandun sa dagat, eh. Ang dami nilang parehong gusto — martial arts, nagma-martial arts din si Jen.

“Luis likes to dive, she likes to dive...

"Kausap ko nga yung diving instructor ni Luis, e... Sabi niya, ’Did you know your son is such a good diver?’ Na candidate na siya for dive master...

“Ganun na siya. So, you know, maganda nga na meron silang mutual interest, e. Hindi lang pelikula, hindi lang yung pag-aartista.”
