Anne Curtis Cried Out Of Pity When She Visited Vhong Navarro In The Hospital

ANNE CURTIS attended the launch of Viva’s Pinoy Box Office (PBO) as the newest partner of Skycable, the country’s biggest digital cable TV provider with 180 SD and HD channels. She looks so tanned these days because she’s taping “Dyesebel” under the sun in Coron, Palawan. Is this the reason why she’s said to be leaving “Showtime”?

“No, I’m not leaving it,” she says. “I’ll be absent every now and then but every time I’m free, you’ll still see me in it. Yung pilot week lang ang ite-tape namin in Coron and the rest will be on a beach nearer to Manila. Tuloy-tuloy pa rin ang training ko sa Mermaid’s Academy. My trainer performs underwater tricks at Manila Ocean Park at yun ang itinuturo niya sa amin, including the boys who play siokoy kasi pati sila, may buntot rin dito made of fitted silicone. Talagang sinukatan kaming isa-isa. And tuloy-tuloy rin ang shooting ko sa ‘The Gifted’ with Sam Milby and Cristine Reyes, a dark comedy written and directed by Chris Martinez. Dapat last year pa ito, but I didn’t have time to shoot kasi I did a lot of shows abroad, so wala ako kahit isang movie last year.”

So she’s with Sam in both her newest TV and movie projects. “Yes, and okay lang kasi we kept our friendship naman. Ang galing na niya talaga ngayong mag-Tagalog. He always talks to me in Tagalog. Talagang kina-career niya.”

Has she visited “Showtime” co-host Vhong Navarro in the hospital? “Yes. Naiyak nga ako. What happened to him is really scary. Napakabait niya so I don’t believe what he’s accused of doing. I’m always praying for him at sana mabigyan siya ng justice.”

She’s now busy recording her new album and she’s planning to hold more concerts here and abroad. “My problem is gumaganda na talaga ang boses ko,” she laughs. “Dati, nakakatawa kasi disintunado, but now, everyone says may improvement na. Nahahasa na siguro. Baka hanapin ng tao yung disintunado ako.”

She and BF Erwan Heussaff seems so cozy. Do they plan to tie the knot soon? “No, siguro when I’m 32. Ayoko namang too late na para mag-baby ako. But as of now, we’re both so busy. He has put up two new restaurant, Pink Panda near A Venue in Makati and Nini Ichinana at The Fort. Sosyo rin sila ng sister niya, si Solenn, in Hatch 22 at Powerplant Mall.”

Anne’s hit movies and her concerts will be one of the top attractions of PBO (represented at the launch by Viva exec Vincent del Rosario) and SkyCable (represented by COO Ray Montinola). With Viva and Sky now partners, timeless Pinoy classic films and very new blockbusters like “It Takes a Man and a Woman” of Sarah Geronimo, plus sold out concerts of top artists like Mark Bautista’s “Sound of Love”, will now be shown 24/7. PBO is available in Bronze, Silver, Gold and Dual Def plans.
