Jackie Rice Threatens To Upstage Other Sexy Stars In Fhm Affair On July 12

JACKIE RICE has good reasons to be smiling these days. First, her new soap, “Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka?”, is rating very well and more and more viewers are watching it. Then she’s included in the top ten list of FHM’s sexiest women as #7, a promotion since she was just #9 last year. She’s also the cover of its July issue that contains the 100 Sexiest Women’s list.

Other Kapuso stars in the list are Sam Pinto as #1, Solenn Heussaff as #3, Marian Rivera as #4, Ellen Adarna as #6, Bela Padilla as #8, Jennylyn Mercado as #9 and Lovi Poe as #10. Only Angel Locsin and Cristine Reyes are the Kapamilya stars who made it in the list and, mind you, they’re both former Kapuso stars also. This is Jackie’s second time to be FHM’s cover after January 2010. How different is the new pictorial?

“It’s much sexier,” she says. “Siempre, we have to top the first one. Kung parang nagho-hold back pa ako sa una, this time, I think mas malakas na ang loob ko. Tuwang-tuwa nga yung fotographer, si Doc Marlon, kasi give na give ako. Originally, nine photos lang ang nasa layout, pero dahil magaganda lumabas ang mga kuha sa’kin, dinoble nila at naging 18 photos ang nasa July issue.”

How does her non-showbiz BF feel about it? “He’s supportive. Alam naman niyang career ang priority ko and this is a good career move. He even voted for me and campaigned for me.”

Her main concern now is to further hone her acting. “My dream is to win an acting award someday and I’m happy na positive naman ang feedback na nakukuha ko for my performance in ‘Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka?’ I should thank my leading men, Michael de Mesa and Geoff Eigenmann, kasi ang huhusay nila so I’m inspired and challenged to also give my best when I do scenes with them.”

Jackie will appear in the FHM Sexiest Women’s party at the World Trade Center on July 12. “I’m quite nervous kasi lahat kami roon, mga sexy. But I promise to do my best para hindi ako matabunan. I want to be one of those who’ll stand out kaya promise, may gagawin akong ikababaliw ng mga manonood sa’min.”
