MANILA – Fans of Bea Alonzo should thank this top actor for inspiring her to join show business.
On “Tonight with Boy Abunda,” Alonzo revealed that Jericho Rosales is the reason why she wanted to be a celebrity.
She said she has always been the fan of the actor in “Pangako Sa ‘Yo,” which aired on ABS-CBN from 2000 to 2002.
“Ako, [si] Jericho Rosales,” she said, referring to the star of the top-rating series “Halik.”
“Dati, ‘pag nanonood ako ng ‘Pangako Sa ‘Yo’ – kasi di ko talaga pinalalampas ang ‘Pangako Sa ‘Yo’ noon – ‘pag tinitingnan niya si Kristine Hermosa, naiisip ko ako ‘yung tinitingnan niya,” she went on. “Iniisip ko, one day, ‘pag nagka-boyfriend ako, ganyan niya ako titingnan.”
When asked by Abunda if Rosales is aware of this, Alonzo said she accidentally spilled the beans when she got drunk at one Star Magic Ball.
“Isang beses, nag-Star Magic Ball, nalasing po ako [at] nasabi ko sa kanya,” she said, laughing. “[Sinabi ko] ‘Alam mo ba, Echo, isa ka sa mga dahilan bakit nag-artista ako.’”
“And then 'di na ako makatingin sa kanya after. Until now, he knows.”
