MANILA, Philippines – Feisty talent manager Annabelle Rama admitted that she had tried to take her own life just to get rid of the pain of jealousy caused by her intense love for actor Eddie Gutierrez, who is now her husband.
“Minsan ako na lang ang naglason para matapos na rin. Uminom ako ng shampoo at saka (ano pa) kasi gusto mo nang tapusin at hindi mo na matiis, in love na in love ka,” she said in an interview on ABS-CBN morning talk show "Kris TV" Friday.
Rama said she also thought of splashing muriatic acid on Gutierrez's face, still because of jealousy.
“Kasi nga parang niloloko ka na at ayaw mo siyang mapunta sa ibang girl. Parang gusto mo tapusin mo na lang. Parang ganoon ang nangyari noon,” she said.
Rama stressed, however, that she and Gutierrez are on good terms, adding that they have been married for over 10 years.
The talent manager said it was her eldest daughter, Ruffa, who encouraged Gutierrez to marry her mom.
"Sabi niya (Ruffa) bakit mga classmates ko laging parents nila kasama, ako hindi. So sabi ko sa kanya 'sabihin mo sa daddy mo na pakasalan ako.' Ginawa naman ni Ruffa. Pasalamat ako kay Ruffa kahit lagi kaming magkaaway niyan eh dahil sa kanya ay pinakasalan ako ng daddy niya," Rama said.
