MANILA - Dina Bonnevie has had enough of constantly being asked about her former husband, comedian and TV host Vic Sotto, when she is now happily married to someone else.
In a live interview on "Aquino & Abunda Tonight" on Tuesday, the 53-year-old actress was asked if she is bothered that Sotto's name is always brought up when she speaks with members of the press.
"Oo nga, parang nga ang feeling ko, hanggang ngayon, suot ko pa ang korona ng Mrs. Sotto, eh. Pero nakapag-move on na ako," she answered. "I get bothered in a way, kasi para bang naka-move on na ako, pero hindi parin maka-move on 'yung mga tao."
"But of course, I can't remove the fact that I am the mother of his children, pero ganoon talaga, eh," she added.
Bonnevie and Sotto, whose marriage has been annulled, have two children -- Danica and Oyo Boy -- both also in the entertainment industry.
Bonnevie was married to Ilocos Sur Vice-Governor Deogracias Victor Savellano in March last year, her third husband after Sotto and Dick Penson.
Explaining why she no longer wants to talk about Sotto, who is now in a relationship with actress Pauleen Luna, Bonnevie said, "Actually, ako, more not for me, but my spouse."
"Kasi, 'di ba, may asawa ka na, eh. Bakit ba doon pa rin nang doon. Puwede bang mag-move on na ako? Kasi Mrs. Savellano na ako, eh," she said.
"Actually, noong press con, sabi ko, 'Bakita ko na naman? Bakit ako na naman ang tatanungin niyo about Vic? Puwede bang... Nag-move on na ako, Mrs. Savellano na ako, please... Ayoko nang...'"
Bonnevie is thankful, however, that Savellano is very understanding of her profession. She said that her husband has gotten used to her having to answer personal questions, even if they are sometimes about her past relationships.
"Si DV naman kasi, he's really so mature. Alam niya na it comes with the territory. Iyon 'yung tinatawag niya na occupational hazard. It's part of it," she said.
