Rhian Ramos' 'The Rich Man's Daughter' As The Reason Why Many Lesbian Came Out Of The Closet And Reveal Their True Selves

RHIAN RAMOS was surprised when she got tweets from real life lesbians telling her that because of her ground-breaking soap, “The Rich Man’s Daughter”, they were able to muster enough courage to come out, open up themselves and reveal their real sexual preference to their family and friends.

“Since we started airing on May 11, talagang laging pinag-uusapan ang show online at consistent sa trending topics list ang daily hashtags ng prog­rama. We’re really happy and grateful ni Glaiza de Castro and all those involved in the show dahil sa suporta ng viewers at mas excited kami ngayon to give our best para mas mapaganda ang bawat episode ng ‘The Rich Man’s Daughter’.”

Some loyal fans of the show even tagged their love team as ‘RaStro Rebels,’ which stands for Ramos and Castro. There are also social media accounts named after Jade and Althea, the characters they play in the soap. Some fans even made beautiful graphics and memes based on the memorable scenes they’ve portrayed in past episodes. What if the fans would request that Rhian would have a kissing scene with Glaiza? “Why not? Normal naman to kiss when you’re in a relationship, but what’s holding us back is what we can or can’t do on TV. Kung sa amin lang, as actors, or even sa writers and director namin, okey lang sa amin, But there are forces which are not beyond our control. Kung gagawin namin at ipatatanggal lang later on, we’d have second thoughts about doing such a scene.”

If there’s someone who’s sad about “The Rich Man’s Daughter”, it’s her Chinese racer boyfriend. “Sad nga siya dahil hindi na kami masyadong nagkikita. It’s what you get when you have a relationship with very busy people. Ha-ha-ha! Nagulat talaga siya bigla akong naging busy lagi. But he knows how happy I am now, so he understands.”
