MANILA – Six years since her husband, actor Rudy Fernandez, passed away, actress Lorna Tolentino confessed she does not see herself walking down the aisle again.
In an interview with Ricky Lo as published in The Philippine Star on Sunday, Tolentino said she is now okay with having her two sons with her, as well as her granddaughter.
“I’m happy with my life now,” she said. “I am happy being a lola. I have two men in my life and I don’t need one more.”
This despite the fact that Fernandez had told her it’s okay if she falls in love again.
“He told me naman that it’s okay lang for me to fall in love again. Kaya lang huwag daw d’un sa kasing-edad ng mga anak namin. But then, okay sana if I were in my 40s. Kaya lang nasa 50s na ako. As it is, as of now, okay lang ako,” she said.
Tolentino is currently 52 years old and she will be turning a year older in December.
While she tells everyone that she has already moved on from losing Fernandez, Tolentino admits she still has her husband’s things intact in their home.
“They are intact, nasa cabinet. Rudy’s things are in order, ayos na ayos, so why touch them?” she said.
“Actually, Rap and Renz (her sons) are using some of their dad’s things. They would say, ‘Ay, kelangan ko ng ganito.’ And I would tell them, ‘Ayan, tumingin ka sa cabinet ng Papa n’yo, mayroon dyan.’ It’s a good thing na magkasukat sila…shoes, shirts etc.”
Asked how she envisions herself 10 years from now, the actress said: “Sana umaarte pa rin ako; sana I will still be in this business. I see myself managing a business on the side, like farming.”
