Jackie Rice Is Torn Between Father And Son

DIDN’T JACKIE RICE wonder why it took GMA-7 eight months to give her a new soap when she got great feedback in “Sisid” that rated well? “Nagtaka rin ako, but then, di naman ako bakante kasi I appear regularly in ‘Bubble Gang’,” she says at the presscon of her new afternoon soap, “Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka”, that will replace “The Good Daughter” starting this Monday. “Naisip ko na lang baka binibigyan naman ng chance yung ibang GMA stars kasi andami naming artista nila. Well worth the wait naman for me kasi napakagandang project ng ‘Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka?’ I play Erica, older sister ni Jennica Garcia. We’re rich but our family got into a car accident, killing our parents at nabulag pa si Jennica. Bigla kaming naging poor. Boyfriend ko si Jake, played be Geoff Eigenmann, and we planned to elope, but hindi siya sumipot. I became miserable. Tapos, I met Michael de Mesa, who supported my sister and I at pinaopera siya to regain her sight. So naging kami na kahit he’s much older than me. The conflict is when I met Michael’s son Joaquin, na si Geoff din pala. So tinuhog ko yung mag-ama dahil gusto kong gumanti kay Geoff. It turned out, hindi siya nakarating nung magtatanan kami, kasi that’s when his dad broke up with his mom, Sharmaine Arnaiz, at nag-try ito ng suicide.”
