Richard Gutierrez spends Holy Week in Boracay

RICHARD GUTIERREZ was able to take some rest during the Holy Week break when he and “Captain Barbell” co-stars Lovi Poe, Solenn Heussaff and Ervic Vijandre went to Boracay last Wednesday. His twin brother Raymond, along with three other brothers Rocky, Elvis and Ritchie Paul, were also with them. They’re supposed to return to Manila today, but Raymond returned ahead of them yesterday for his live hosting chore in “Showbiz Central”. Their parents, Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama, chose to spend Holy Week in Baguio along with some of Annabelle’s ward. Sister Ruffa is also not with them as she chose to accept the invitation of a friend to spend Lent in a remote farm in Mindanao. Ruffa went with daughters Lorin and Venice and their yayas.

When Richard and co-stars arrive today, they go straight to the set of “Captain Barbell” for the resumption of their taping of the hit show. He’ll be taping every day until May 4, then he leaves with his parents for the U.S. to watch the fight of Manny Pacquiao versus Mosley at Las Vegas, Nevada on May 7. “Kaya kailangang makapag-stock kami ng maraming episodes ng ‘Captain Barbell’ bago ako umalis for the States,” he says. “This week, the fight between the warring groups of the Liga ng Kalayaan and Christopher de Leon’s Puwersa ng Kadiliman gets more intense as they both try to recruit new members. Pag-aagawan nilang makuha si Ellen Adarna as Kat. Ako naman as Teng continues to be haunted by the memory of my dead wife, Rhian Ramos as Leah, so I will try to avoid Lovi Poe as Althea kahit na nagugustuhan ko na rin sana niya.”
