Manilyn Reyes Is Good As Understanding Mom Of A Gay Son In 'Destiny Rose', But What If Her Real Life Son Is Gay?

MANILYN REYNES is getting lots of good feedback for her portrayal of Daisy, the mother of Ken Chan who is very supportive of her very gay son, Ken as Joey, in the hit afternoon soap on GMA-7, “Destiny Rose”. She has three sons in real life: Kyle, Kurt and Kael.What if one of them would turn out to be gay in real life?
        “I guess mamahalin ko pa rin siya and accept him,” she says. “But honestly, wala naman akong nakikitang signs na gay ang sinuman sa mga anak ko.”

She seems to have very good rapport with Ken as her son. “Ay, oo. Anak ko talaga ang tingin ko diyan. He’s very nice. Masarap katrabaho. At napakagaling na artista. Iisipin mo talagang bading nga siya. Marami ngang nagsasabing parang mag-ina raw talaga kami and it’s true, kasi what Daisy shows for Joey is the unconditional love of a mother. Even off cam kasi, nagbo-bonding talaga kami, nagbi-videoke, nagbu-boodle fight sa set, kaya laging masaya. I’m so happy for Ken na naging successful ang launching show niya. He deserves it.”

What can she say about the observation of some viewers that Joey is too good to be true as a “baklang martir”? This is because he’s often been oppressed and tormented by so many people, but he never fights back and just tries to endure all the hardships thrown his way. “Siempre, ganun talaga sa umpisa, lalo na sina Jackielou Blanco as Dahlia and Katrina Halili as Jasmine, talagang inaapi siya nang husto. Pero just wait, darating din ang point na mapupuno ang salop at lalaban din siya. Hintayin nyo lang.”

This week, Katrina steals the beautiful letter Ken wrote for Fabio Ide as Gabriel about his love for him and makes it appear she herself is the one wrote it. She also pretends that JC Tiuseco as Lance wants to rape her, so Fabio defends her from JC. Fabio then proposes marriage to Katrina whose dream is for him to take her abroad. But Ken sees Katrina later having sex with JC and threatens to tell Fabio about it, but Katrina and JC gang up on him and kidnap him so he won’t be able to reveal the truth to Gabriel.
