Regine Velasquez stops taping for new show to concentrate on her wedding preparation

Regine Velasquez 3

REGINE VELASQUEZ has stopped taping for her new show, “I Heart You Pare”, that will replace “Grazilda” when it ends in February, so she can devote more time preparing for her December 22 wedding to Ogie Alcasid. “We will resume taping on January 10 na kasi after the wedding, gusto ko namang magkaroon kami ng time ni Ogie for ourselves,” she says. “We’re going to Boracay after the wedding.”

To make their own baby? “No, just to rest then kasi nakakapagod ang preparation for the wedding. I don’t want to pressure myself about having a baby. Basta kung ibibigay ba ni Lord, di thank you.”

Her leading man in “I Heart You Pare” is Dingdong Dantes. They’re supported by Tirso Cruz III, Celia Rodriguez, Ian Veneracion, Ryza Cenon, Ehra Madrigal, Antonio Aquitania, Marc Abaya, Carlo Gonzales, Luz Valdes, Kevin Santos, Luanne Dy, Butz Aquino, Joey Paras, and Joel Saracho, directed by Andoy Ranay and Joyce Bernal. Regine plays a woman who pretends to be a gay female impersonator, so there will be many musical numbers where she’ll be shown lipsynching hit songs of various artists. “Nakakaaliw ang mundo ng mga bading at drag queen na inilalarawan namin dito so I’m sure it will be a hit with viewers,” adds Regine. “Romantic comedy rin ito at, ang maganda, mai-in love si Dingdong sa akin dito kahit ang akala niya, bading ako. Natapos na naming i-tape ang buong first week at meron na kaming scenes shot for the second, third and fourth week, kaya puede na kong mag-rest muna for the wedding as marami na kaming stock na future episodes. Masaya kami lagi sa set kasi puro mga bading ang kasama namin.” We’re sure, “I Heart You Pare” will be as big a hit as her last soap, “Diva”.
