MANILA – Former actor Wowie De Guzman denied accusations that he is using his wife’s death to revive his showbiz career.
In an interview with “Buzz ng Bayan” on Sunday, De Guzman said he is simply granting interviews since a lot of people have been asking about him following the passing of his wife, Sheryl Ann Reyes.
“Hindi naman po ako nanghihingi ng interview. Actually nakikiusap sila sa akin, pinagbibigyan ko lang because I feel na miyembro pa rin naman ako ng industriya kahit hindi na ako ganun ka-visible sa TV,” he said.
De Guzman continued saying “karapatan naman siguro na malaman kung anong nangyari kasi ang daming nagtatanong.”
Two weeks ago, Reyes died after taking a muscle pain reliever and months of having erratic blood pressure, the ex-actor had said.
The “Mara Clara” actor said he could not help but blame himself for what happened because he believes he could have done something to prevent his wife’s death.
“'Yung wife ko kasi medyo mataray sa akin parati. Pero at that time kasi, nung tumataas 'yung blood pressure niya, iniiwasan ko makipagtalo sa kanya because baka nga tumaas. After niya manganak, nung nakita ko 'yung hirap niya, parang lumaki lalo 'yung respeto ko sa kanya because ang hirap pala maging ina. Sabi ko lahat ng gusto mo ibibigay ko, lahat gagawin ko para sa kanya. Siguro kung pinilit ko siya na mag-check up siya, siguro pwedeng nalaman namin kung ano yung nangyayari sa kanya,” he said.
De Guzman’s wife was laid to rest last Saturday.
