Heart Evangelista Won't Force Her Parents To Like Sen. Chiz Escudero

HEART EVANGELISTA is now a regular co-host in “Startalk”. She just pinch hit for them when one of the regular hosts (Lolit Solis, Joey de Leon, Ricky Lo and Butch Francisco) is absent. Now, she’s a mainstay.

“It makes me super busy dahil I tape regularly for my afternoon soap, ‘Magkano Ba ang Pag-ibig’, then I still shoot for my movie with Viva, ‘My Trophy Wife’, with Derek Ramsay, but okay lang kasi enjoy naman,” she says.

She’s now seen on TV every single day of the week. Monday to Friday, she’s in “Magkano Ba ang Pag-ibig”,Sundays on “Sunday All Stars” and now, in “Startalk” on Saturdays. It’s good she still has time for her beau, Sen. Chiz Escudero. “Siempre naman. We’ll always have time for each other.”

Have her parents finally accepted the senator for her? “I don’t think they’re ready but okay lang kasi hindi ko naman pagpipilitan ito sa kanila. Kung ayaw nila, di huwag. What I’ve realized that I’m old enough to make decisions for myself dahil ako naman ang magdadala nito sa buhay. So kung sinuman ang pipiliin ko, paninindigan ko. As of now, I’m really happy with him kasi very supportive sa career ko, hindi nakikialam, walang mga selos-selos factor. Okay lang sa kanya kahit pag-usapan ko with press people ang lovelife namin. Hindi gaya nung iba na gusto, itago pa, di ba? Magaan talaga siyang kasama. He’s really very understanding and I appreciate that a lot.”
