Sen. Chiz Escudero Reveals Why He And Wife Heart Evangelista Now Live In Separate Houses

DO YOU KNOW THAT HEART EVANGELISTA and husband Sen. Chiz Escudero live separately? This was revealed by no less than the senator himself. But it doesn’t mean they’re already called it quits after only seven months of being married.

“Medyo weird yung setup namin kasi my twin kids, Quino and Chesi, live in the townhouse na dati ko nang pag-aari since I was a congressman,” says Sen. Chiz. “Medyo maliit yun, so hindi magkakasya lahat ng gamit ni Heart if she’d join us so she’s renting another townhouse na malapit sa townhouse namin ng mga anak ko. Walking distance lang naman kaya hindi mahirap kung palipat-lipat man ako. At night, pinapatulog ko muna yung kambal at pag okay na sila, then lilipat na ko sa townhouse ni Heart para kami ang magkasama throughout the night. Then, sa morning, I wake up early para naman makita ko yung mga bata at maihatid sila sa kanilang school. Medyo mahirap ang setup but okay naman. Maganda. Masaya.”

Heart says it’s good the new house they’re constructing right now is about to be completed. It will be the love nest of their whole family. “Doon, magsasama-sama na kaming lahat,” she says. “We’re all excited na sana makalipat na kami roon. Sa labas, Mediterranean ang design ng house, but sa loob, French country look naman ang ayos para maging very homey ang dating for the twins. Sana nga, matapos na soon, para makalipat na kami.” “Kapag natapos na yung pinagagawang bahay, pwede ko nang ipagmalaking ‘ibinabahay’ ako ni Heart Evangelista,” Sen. Chiz jokes.

Career-wise, Heart is so happy that her current soap, “Beautiful Strangers”, continues to enjoy high ratings, good feedback from viewers and full commercial load. “Nakakatuwa to be part of a successful show like this. Kasi kahit saan ako magpunta, people tell me they really watch ‘Beautiful Strangers’. I’m so happy to be working with Lovi Poe, Rocco Nacino, Christopher de Leon and all our co-stars in this show. At huwag kayong bibitaw dahil more exciting surprises will be in store for you this week. Hindi matutuloy ang kasal nina Lovi as Joyce and Benjamin Alves as Lawrence after Lovi revealed that it’s Christopher as Ronaldo who tried to rape and kill her. Siempre, ako as Christopher’s daughter, I don’t want to believe at dahil dito, nag-away kami ni Rocco Nacino as Noel at magbe-break kami. Lovi files a case against my dad and he’s taken by the cops for questioning. But Dina Bonnevie as Alejandra blackmails the fiscal handling the case so the case won’t prosper. Lovi is interviewed by the media and the public believes her so this affects the political career of Dina. Lovi meets Christopher in the hospital and attacks her. Inaawat namin siya ng mommy ko, Ayen Laurel, na naitulak niya, gets injured and might not be able to walk again. Dahil dito, siya ang naging wanted sa mga pulis.”
