Ara Mina On The Breakup Of Sister Cristine With Derek And Her Own Mayor BF

ARA MINA plays a short but meaty role in TV5’s “The Gift” whose airing date has been postponed to give way to the PBA Finals. She is the girlfriend of Ogie Alcasid who dies in a tragic car crash. As a single parent, she leaves her son under the care of Ogie, who is at first hostile to the boy and wallows in depression because of the accident.

Ara was at the TV5 Trade Launch and she’s asked how her sister Cristine Reyes is doing after the break up with Derek Ramsay. “I asked her about it sa text pero hindi siya nagre-reply so I supposed ayaw muna niyang pag-usapan ang tungkol doon,” she says. “I can feel malungkot siya pero gusto muna siguro niyang sarilinin yun. I’m sure when she’s ready to open up, magsasalita rin siya. But right now, they’re together doing shows in Hawaii, so hindi natin masasabi kung anong puedeng mangyari. Kasi, nakikita ko, mabait naman si Derek. Even our mom has met him at marespeto raw. Makikita namang he’s a gentleman dahil ayaw niyang pag-usapan with the press kung anong nangyari sa kanila ng sister ko.”

What about her own lovelife? Is she still on with Bulacan mayor Patrick Meneses? “Oo, maayos naman kami.”

Is she ready to walk down the aisle and have her own family? “Ready kung sa ready, but then, hindi naman sa’kin manggagaling ang proposal. Alangan namang i-pressure ko siya. It has to come from the man, di ba?”
