Nagbiro si Karylle na mga kamag-anak niya ang bagong pasok na hosts sa ABS-CBN noontime show na It’s Showtime.
Naging regular co-hosts na sa programa ngayong taon sina Amy Perez at Mariel Rodriguez.
First cousin ni Amy ang ina ni Karylle na si Zsa Zsa Padilla; samantalang first cousin naman ng ama ng Divine Diva na si Carlos Padilla Jr. si Robin Padilla, na asawa ni Mariel.
Kuwento ni Karylle, “Sabi nga ng dad ko, ‘Parang puro mga kamag-anak mo yata ang mga kasama mo.’
“Siyempre I grew up going to Tita Amy’s house—sleeping over, getting her hand-me-downs from Palibhasa Lalake, mga t-shirt niya, mga pambahay namin.
“Mariel is such a sweet lady. I don’t wanna call her tita kasi parang odd, pero, yeah, so yun… it’s nice to have family also in the show.”
Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at iba pang press si Karylle sa contract signing niya sa PolyEast Records noong Martes, February 9.
POSITIVE FEEDBACK. Ikinatutuwa naman ni Karylle ang magandang feedback na nakukuha ng bagong segment ng It’s Showtime, ang talent search na "Tawag ng Tanghalan."
Pahayag ng singer/actress/TV host, “I’m happy that we’re getting such positive feedback.
“People always have discussions about who should have won, who won, if they agree, if they disagree, so I like that people are really talking about it.”
Ano naman ang masasabi niya sa pagtaas ng ratings ng kanilang programa?
Sagot ni Karylle, “I don’t wanna be too ratings-conscious.
“I think it has a weird effect on people... sana, di ba nga, we weren’t too ratings-conscious.
“But that’s business, that’s how the showbiz world works.”
NO PREGGY PLANS YET. Samantala, mahigit isang taon nang kasal si Karylle sa band vocalist na si Yael Yuzon, pero hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa siya nabubuntis.
Ayon kay Karylle, may mga trabaho pa siyang kailangang unahin.
“I just have one last project that I’m working on.
“I just really wanna make sure the new music is out there, not just for myself, but for other people in the scene.
“I’ve always said na a thriving scene is a great scene.
“I can’t just be successful on my own. I can’t just rejoice, ‘Ay, y album reached whatever… gold or whatever!’
“Parang it would be more of a victory for me if my whole generation of singers had work, if people were listening to new songs, talking about new songs, watching gigs, watching concerts na local.”
Isa raw ito sa hangad ni Karylle sa kanyang bagong album.
“Kasi ngayon, new music is more throwback than current.
“Siyempre, being in a family of musicians, my husband’s always making music at home, it’s like, 'How do we get the new music out there?'
“Everyone loves throwback so much kasi. So, I have a new project that’s the special project we’re really working on.”
