Amy Perez is the most visible personality in TV5

TV5 HAS strengthened its morning show, “Sapul sa Singko”, 5 to 8 AM weekdays, with the inclusion of more hosts and innovative segments. Its launch was hosted by “Talentadong Pinoy” discovery Makata-Tawanan, who’s real name is Ferdinand Clemente. He’s good in his funny non-stop delivery of his spiels as he introduced each member of the show. Erwin Tulfo, Chiqui Roa Puno and Martin Andanar handle the news and commentary portion; Lourd de Veyra (who also handles the cooking segment), Shawn Yao and Atty. Mike Templo (son of former actress Mildred Ortega) deliver the latest info on culture and lifestyle; Amy Perez gives home management tips and business ideas, Benjie Felipe does the showbiz news; Lia Cruz moves around the city to see what’s hot in fashion, fitness and sports.

Amy is now the most visible face on TV 5 having two daily shows, “Sapul” and “Face to Face Talakserye”, plus Untold Stories from Face to Face. In “Sapul”, they offer an entertaining new portion called “Love Hurts” that other morning shows don’t offer. They read letters from viewers about personal problems that they dramatize on TV. An episode was shown to us, about a Pinay OFW in Japan who’s torn between two lovers, then the trio of Amy, Erwin and Martin gave some advice to the letter sender and they do offer some sensible words of wisdom.

We tell Amy no doubt her views come from her own personal experience after her failed marriage to singer Brix Ferraris. “Naku, naka-move na ako diyan,” she says. “Pero itong si Martin, hindi pa. One time, he googled Brix at na-trace ito sa Youtube performing in California. Ang taba-taba na raw. Natawa na lang ako. May nagsabi, TNT daw roon. Kung masama ako, I’d have reported him na sa immigration, di ba? Ang pakiusap ko na lang kay Brix, sana i-divorce na niya ako so we can have formal closure, kasi may kanya-kanya na kaming buhay and also we can both marry again. I’m just so thankful kay Carlo Castillo (her DJ partner of five years) na naiintindihan niya ang sitwasyon ko. Also the side of his family na tinanggap ako ng buong-buo pati ang anak kong si Adi, now 13, na halos kadugo na rin ang turing nila just like kay Kyle na anak namin ni Carlo, who’s now 2. Gusto nga ni Carlo, to formally adopt Adi kasi siya naman ang kinagisnan nitong ama. Si Adi mismo, gusto nang papalitan ang surname niya to Castillo, kasi na-trace niya ang daddy niya sa Facebook at pini-friend niya, pero ni hindi siya sinagot. Kaya di mo masisisi yung bata kung wala siyang feelings for Brix.
