Why Angelica Scheming called the helicopter girl?

ANGELI COPTER and Jackie Forster were paired in “Survivor Philippines” as they’re both young moms. Jackie was not at the show’s launch as she had to go the U.S. for the anniversary of her grandparents, so Angeli was solo at the presscon. Born on Dec. 31, 1983, she got married when she was 23. She has a 2-year old son and is now separated from her husband. She has a German dad and a Pinay mom. “I was born here and my full maiden name is Angelica Morales Schmeing,” she says. “My ex naman is a Cruz. I became Angelicopter when I called DJ Mo sa radio show niya. I made a joke about the helicopter sex position and it stuck. But I want to make it clear I’ve never tried it, huh. Now, regular DJ na rin ako sa Magic 89.9 and now I also do sports coverage for Sports 5 and courtside reports sa PBA. I took the audition for ‘Survivor’, pati psychological tests, and I passed it. Since requirement na may manager ka before they sign you up, I got Tita Annabelle Rama to manage me.”

She was with cager Ali Peek the night he was shot. “We came from the gym. Hinatid niya ko sa car than he went to his car. Nakaalis na ko when he was shot. May nag-twit lang sa’kin about what happened. I thought first it was a bad joke, but I went straight na to Medical City where he was taken. He’s okay now.”

Why was she linked to Manny Pacquiao? “I got to interview him twice, but not solo, marami kong kasabay. Then I had some boxing with him. Tapos biglang na-link na lang ako. Nakakahiya nga sa misis niya as we’re both Belo endorsers. May tsismis pang kinonfront daw ako ni Ms. Jinkee, which isn’t true at all.”

Is she willing to try acting? “Why not? I’m willing to try anything, given the chance.”

“Survivor Celebrity Doubles Showdown” starts airing tonight on GMA-7.
