Magic Palayok, Geoff Eigenmann and Carla Abellana new show

THE QUESTION most frequently asked to Geoff Eigenmann at the “Magic Palayok” presscon was: when are you and Carla Abellana going to wed? Doesn’t he get tired hearing the same question over and over again? “Wala, e,” he shrugs. “Before, ang laging tinatanong was kung on na ba kami, so I guess logical lang that the next question after we admitted na officially on na nga kami is: kailan kayo pakakasal? Ganun din naman sa iba pang artista who admitted they’re going steady, di ba? And I guess hangga’t hindi kami kinakasal, itatanong at itatanong pa rin yun at paulit-ulit din naming isasagot na we’re not yet ready as we’re still enjoying our careers.”

In “Magic Palayok”, he plays Jude, a rich guy who could be the long lost dad of Angeli Sanoy, the girl who own the magic palayok that can cook all sorts of delicious dishes. Her mom, Mikee Cojuangco in a special guest role, dies and so Angeli is forced to search for her father. But the problem is there are three other guys who are also suspected to be her possible dad: Jay-R, Gino de la Pena and Frank Garcia. “Our last show ni Carla was a heavy drama, ‘Basahang Ginto’. This one is much lighter at may fantasy elements for the whole family. I’m glad to be reunited here with Direk Joel Lamangan kasi para kang nagwo-workshop with him. Hangga’t di niya nagugustuhan ang isang eksena mo, pauulit niya sa’yo until you perfect it. Dito, mala-Walt Disney ang treatment niya that even the villains, played by my Tita Cherie Gil and Chynna Ortaleza, very funny ang dating.”

“Magic Palayok” will replace “Bantatay” that ends today with an explosive episode where a major character will say goodbye. “Bantatay” is a consistent toprater and even it’s newest competitor, Kris Aquino’s game show, cannot beat it. “Kaya nga may pressure sa’min,” says Geoff. “Kailangan ma-maintain ng ‘Magic Palayok’ ang high ratings set by ‘Bantatay’.”
