Barbie Forteza Talks About Derrick Monasterio, Joshua Dionisio & Ruru Madrid

BARBIE FORTEZA is currently being linked to her “Paroa, Kuwento ni Mariposa” leading men, Derrick Monasterio and Ruru Madrid, but she swears they’re both not even courting her.

“We’re close friends dahil lagi kaming nagkikita sa taping, that’s all,” she says. “I’m only 15, hindi ko pa balak makipag-boyfriend.”

Any news about her former ka-love team, Joshua Dionisio? “Nagkita kami noong Valentine’s Day sa affair ng Unisilver. I haven’t seen him for so long, tapos nataon pang Valentine. He’s wearing eye glasses na kasi may astimagtism daw siya. He also went back to school.”

She has grown taller and now stands at 5’2”. She’s also graduating in March. “Bale grade 7 ako sa home study program ng School of Tomorrow sa Ortigas. They give you all the modules then you tell them when you’re ready to take their exams. I will take my finals sa March, pero walang graduation. They’ll just give me a certificate saying puede na ko sa high school, which is level 8.”

“Paroa” is having its last taping at the end of February and will have its last week at the start of March. “More than four months din kaming umere. This week, Derrick as Inigo will have to leave the world of us butterfly people to go back sa mundo ng mga tao at ako naman, ipagkakasundong pakasal kay Ruru as Rasul. But something will happen to me. My life will be in danger at si Derrick lang ang puedeng makapagligtas sa akin. Marami pang twists na mangyayari so viewers should not miss the last few weeks of ‘Paroa’.”
