Mom of Carla Abellana Rhea Reyes gives her a piece of advice

RHEA REYES was just starting her career when she met Rey PJ Abellana on the set of “Anna Liza” on GMA in 1984. Rey was paired with Leni Santos but he fell in love with Rhea, who later got preggy and left showbiz. It affected the career of Rey. They had two daughters, one of whom, Carla, is now also in showbiz. At the presscon of “Shake Rattle & Roll 12” where Carla is the lead in the “Funeraria” episode, Rhea tagged along and was interviewed by reporters about Rey’s statements objecting to Carla’s having a boyfriend and buying a new house without consulting him.

“Nagulat lang akong he wants to be consulted as he wants to protect Carla raw. As a mom, nandun din ang concern ko sa anak ko and being the parent who really raised her and saw her grow up, I know when Carla is making the right or wrong decision. She’s already 24 and she’s very responsible so, buhay niya yan, I know I can trust her to make right decisions for herself. I like Geoff Eigenmann, very nice, decent and respectful. Two months pa lang sila officially on and he really makes sure she’s well taken care of. I trust him because my daughter trusts him. I’m just surprised na ngayon lang siya nag-react (Rey) when Carla has had a boyfriend before (cager JC Intal) and they were on for 5 years. Bakit ngayon lang siya naging concerned, di ba? It’s funny kasi he can talk with Carla ng personal, bakit kailangang i-course pa sa media? About the house, kasama kong nag-decision diyan kasi naipon na niya yung pera for its purchase. It’s a good investment, maganda ang location, has four-bedrooms, reasonable ang price so I don’t understand his reaction.”

As for Carla, she doesn’t want to say anything about it. “Basta I love dad and respect him. Yun lang.” There is also another rumor that Carla and Geoff already broke up. Some folks say it might affect their work, like when they taped for GMA’s “Puso ng Pasko” when they seem to be having an LQ.

Efforts to get Rey’s side proved futile. Obviously, someone told him it’d better if he’d just keep quiet.
