Pops Fernandez Prefers To Just Cook Than Go Back To Acting, Also Prefers To Be Single Than Have A Lovelife

POPS FERNANDEZ was a guest at Jun Lalin’s recent birthday party and she invited us and other writers for dinner in her home this Saturday. Sorry, Pops, I will be busy at a family affair so I can’t join you. Too bad I can’t ask her reaction about Piolo Pascual’s recent revelation in a TV interview that they had a quick affair before. Her name was not mentioned but all writers who commented on it quickly guessed that she’s the one being referred to.

Pops has always been quite discreet about her personal affairs, so it’s quite unfair for her name to be dragged in again in such showbiz chismis. She’s getting offer to do teleseryes and shows but she begs off as she prefers to have a quiet life now.

“I’d rather just produce concerts than act,” she says. “Mas gusto ko pang magluto, that’s why nga I’m inviting you all for dinner sa house ko. May isa lang akong requirement: don’t have breakfast or lunch so you can eat all that I’ll prepare for you.”

Maybe someone should offer her a cooking show. But she’s not averse to doing concerts, especially abroad. She’ll soon leave for the U.S.A. to do shows in New Jersey and Las Vegas. As for her love life, she says she enjoys being single now. Her last relationship was with a banker, which was so very private that people only learned about it when it was over.
