Tom Rodriguez's Secret Girlfriend K-La Rivera is Now a Kapuso Singer-Actress

K-LA RIVERA is the newest addition to the cast of GMA-7’s primetime soap “Carmela”. She plays Celine, the daughter of Ramon Corpuz (Freddie Webb), the cop who earlier tried to kill Agot Isidro as Amanda upon the orders of Roi Vinzon as Fernando. K-la is now also a part of “Sunday All Stars”.

But you might be asking: who is K-la? Well, she is a balikbayan singer-actress from Canada who joined “Star Power” on ABS-CBN where Angeline Quinto was the winner. As a runner up, she didn’t get any juicy assignments from ABS so she cultivated her career in theatre and got rave reviews for her title role performance in the musical stage version of “Carrie” of Atlantis Productions.
Also, K-la is the “babae sa dilim” in the lovelife of Tom Rodriguez who has yet to acknowledge her as his GF in public. They got to work together in “Aladdin” and was supposed to be reunited in “The Adams Family”, but Tom got so busy with “My Husband’s Lover” that he had to be replaced by someone else.

In “Carmela”, K-la will play a girl who gets interested in Alden Richards as Yago. But Alden is more enamoured with Marian as Catarina/Carmela and he’ll have tough rivals with his own uncle (Raymond Bagatsing) and grandpa (Roi Vinzon), who also both lustfully desire Marian for themselves.
