Did Carla Abellana & Geoff Eigenmann Secretly Tie The Knot In Las Vegas?

CARLA ABELLANA just returned from a two week vacation in the U.S. with BF Geoff Eigenmann.

“We visited his dad, Tito Michael (de Mesa) and his family in Orange County, then his brother AJ who’s in Las Vegas,” she says at the solo presscon GMA-7 hosted for her. “I gained 10 lbs. while we were there so when I came home, I had a strict diet of only 1,200 calories a day, then I had zumba and boxing workouts.”

How come Geoff looks so overweight? “Siya kasi ang sumalo at kumain doon sa mga di ko kinakain. But he’s dieting now. What he needs is more determination to work out in the gym. He bikes, but I told him hindi makukuha sa biking lang. He needs something more intense, like circuit training. Tumataba siya kasi masaya siya sa’kin.”

Her last soap, “Makapiling Kang Muli”, was aired nine months ago yet. “Habang wala akong soap, nilagay naman ako sa ‘Bubble Gang’ and I really enjoyed doing comedy. But now, finally, may followup na, ‘My Husband’s Lover’, and it’s worth all the long wait kasi ang ganda talaga ng story. I play a young wife who married my college sweetheart. Then suddenly, I felt he’s cold to me na, wala na kaming sex life and I started suspecting he has a mistress. It turned out, latent gay pala siya na late nag-come out of the closet and he’s having an affair with another man, si Dennis Trillo. Hindi ko pa alam kung sino ang makukuha to play my husband, but I know five actors auditioned for the role sa director naming si Dominic Zapata.”

Will she also have an affair with Dennis? “No. Walang ganun, but I’ll have another suitor. Comfortable naman ako with Dennis kasi we’ve worked together na in the movie ‘My Neighbor’s Wife’ and in ‘SRO’ where I played a dying girl.”

We told her to watch the movie “Far From Heaven” starring Julianne Moore in a similar role as a wife who discovers husband Dennis Quaid is gay. In real life, what would she do if she’d find out her husband is gay?

“Sa soap namin, patatawarin ko siya. I won’t reveal his secret to our kids and my parents. In real life, hihiwalayan ko agad siya kasi conservative Catholic ako and I believe in the sanctity of marriage na it’s only for a man and a woman, although I have nothing against gay marriages. Sa soap, martir yung character ko, si Lally. But in real life, hindi ko kakayanin ang ganun.”

Some folks say she and Geoff have already gotten married secretly while they were in Las Vegas. She puts up her hands to show she has no wedding ring yet. “Excuse me, ayoko ng secret wedding. Gusto ko ng magandang wedding dito sa atin. Magagalit ang Lola ko (Delia Razon) kung secret wedding.”
