Valerie Concepcion Won'T Reveal Why She Broke Up With Cager Bf Dondon Hontiveros

VALERIE CONCEPCION plays the most demanding role of her career in the pre-Christmas presentation, “Flames of Love”, as a promiscuous young woman having affairs with married men. Two of her lovers are Ricky Davao, who’s married to Dina Bonnevie, and Allen Dizon, married to Rina Reyes.

“But I’m a victim myself,” she says. “I suffered from sexual abuse from my stepdad, played by theatre actor Ku Aquino. My mom kasi, Jaclyn Jose, is an OFW. Naiwan lang ako sa lola ko, Marita Zobel, who’s addicted to gambling naman and doesn’t know that my stepdad is raping me. What’s worse is I get pregnant and I’m not even sure who the father is. But in the end, there’ll be redemption for my character naman.”

Valerie has many heavy dramatic scenes in the film and producer-writer Baby Nebrida says that she and director Gigi Alfonso were amazed at her sensitivity as an actress.

“We offered the role first to Maja Salvador and Carla Abellana but we were told they’re so busy with their respective soaps so we got Valerie instead,” says Baby. “It turned out she’s the perfect choice for the role. Actresses with sweet images will really have reservations to portray it kasi very bold yung role, with Valerie doing bedscenes with both Ricky and Allen. She really delivers in the movie.”

Off-cam, Valerie has broken up with her cager BF of two years, Dondon Hontiveros. What is the reason why they split? “Sa amin na lang yun,” she says.
