Barbie Forteza Stars In A Show About Heterpaternal Superfecundation (Huh? What's That?)

BARBIE FORTEZA is suddenly busy doing movies and a new soap after being idle since the time her last show, “Anna Karenina”, ended. “Ang tagal na I didn’t have a new soap,” she says. “Pero kasama naman ako sa “Vampire ang Daddy Ko” and “Sunday All Stars”.”

Why was her ka-love team, Derrick Monasterio, ousted from “SAS” when he can sing? “I really don’t know. Marami talaga ang mga natanggal sa show pero ako, nagpapasalamat na na-retain ako sa Sunday show ng GMA kasi enjoy ako performing there,” she says.

But she just finished an indie horror flick, “Full Moon”, with Derrick Monasterio, and they’ll also be together in the new afternoon series, “The Half Sisters”, where she plays the title role along with Thea Tolentino who’ll be paired with Andre Paras. Supporting them in this new show are Jean Garcia as their mom, with Jomari Yllana and Ryan Eigenmann as their dads.

After DID (dissociative identity disorder) in “Rhodora X” and porphyria in “Innamorata”, GMA-7 writers will now introduce another unique medical condition known as heteropaternal superfecundation (o, kaya nyo yun?) in “The Half Sisters”. This means the eggs of the super makating Jean Garcia are simultaneously fertilized by sperms from two different guys, Jomari and Ryan, so she gives birth to both Barbie and Thea, but they have different fathers. Ang galing-galing naman ni Jean dito, di ba? E, kung three guys ang tumira sa kanya, di naging ‘the half triplets’ dapat ito?

Going back to Barbie, she will soon also start shooting a Cinemalaya entry, “Marquina”, where she will play the lead role no less. The problem with “Marquina” is that the stars who were being asked to co-star with her all backed out from the project, and this includes Judy Ann Santos, Joel Torre, Agot Isidro and Angel Aquino. Wonder why. Didn’t they want to support Barbie?
