Ruru Madrid On Gabbi Garcia: 'She's Girlfriend Material But We Don't Want To Rush Things'

THE FIRST TIME the teen love team of Gabbi Garcia and Ruru Madrid appeared in “Wagas” last Saturday rated well and got very positive feedback, a sure indication that their tandem is succeeding in capturing the hearts of the viewers. The story was about first love in high school, with Gabbi as the nerdy ugly duckling who falls for the campus heartthrob, Ruru, who initially snubs him but also falls for her when she blooms.

In real life, people always ask if they’ve also fallen for each other off cam, but they’re consistent in their answers. “We don’t want to rush things,” says Ruru. “Girlfriend material si Gabbi but at this point, we choose to focus on our careers muna.” “At this point, we’re just enjoying our friendship,” says Gabbi. “Lagi kaming magkasama sa taping, we’re getting to know each other better everyday, tama na muna yung ganon at di kailangang madaliin.”

 This week in “Let the Love Begin”, Gabbi as Pia will feel that her dad, Gardo Versoza as Tony, doesn’t love her anymore as he favors the villainous Rita Daniela as Luchie more. She tries to make up for it by volunteering in an outreach program to help poor streetkids, but her stepmom, Donita Rose as Celeste, will do everything to make her look bad in the eyes of her dad. In the outreach program, she meets Ruru as Erick again and their petty fights continue, but we know that they’ll eventually be close to each other.

As for Ai Ai de las Alas as Jeni, she was embarrassed when Gladys Reyes as Katy tore her dress in a public event, but Mark Anthony Fernandez as Jom and Neil Ryan Sese as Jess quickly come to her rescue, making Gladys jealous and envious of her even more. What’s worse, when they started hosting their radio show, the listeners like Jeni’s advice more than Katy’s. When Katy gets sick, Jeni is paired with Jess and their tandem clicks with audiences.
