Charee Pineda Enjoying Twin Jobs In Showbiz And Politics

CHAREE PINEDA did a sizzling love scene with Gary Estrada in “Akin Pa Rin ang Bukas” but she says it’s not really as hot as it appeared on screen. “Si Tito Gary is a real gentleman,” she adds. “Never na nag-touch ang lips namin at lahat, daya lang.”

Is she happy playing a villain role here when she was the leading lady in her last show at ABS, “Angelito, Batang Ama”? “Very happy kasi GMA-7 gave me a warm welcome at happy naman ako dahil very challenging ang role ko as Agatha. I’m glad when viewers tell me naiinis sila sa character. That means, they appreciate my acting. Yung iba, sabi lang sa’kin, wag mo nang masyadong apihin si Lovi.”

The airing of “Angelito” was suddenly short allegedly due to the delinquency on the set of JM De Guzman who’s now undergoing rehab. Did she feel that he had problems while they were taping the show? “Close ako kay JM but he’s not the type who shares what he feels. Tinatanong ko siya, okay ka ba? And he’s say, ok lang ako. Ayoko namang piloting mag-open up siya sa akin. Recently, I wrote him sa email, pero hindi siya sumagot. I don’t know kung nabasa niya or baka wala siyang access sa internet. Nanghinayang talaga ako nang maputol ang show namin but I’m wishing him the best.”

Charee is a new councilor in Valenzuela City and someone wrote that the people there complain about her because she wear sexy outfits during the sessions of the city council. “Hindi totoo yan kasi I know naman what proper clothes to wear sa sessions namin every Monday. Usually, I wear smart casuals at hindi yung suggestive clothes na sinasabi nila. Alam ko naman kunsaan ako lulugar.”

So how is it being a councilor and an actress at the same time? “Enjoy ako. Noong una, akala ko, mahirap pagsabayin. But I have experience na rin kasi Sangguniang Kabataan chairman din ako before. It’s nice to have another life after showbiz work.”

How about her lovelife? Is it true she’s playing beautiful music with Cong. Sherwin Gatchalian? “Not at all. I just broke up with non-showbiz boyfriend. Sa sobrang busy ko ngayon as an actress and a councilor, wala na kong time sa ganyan.”
