People Who Saw Richard Gutierrez Hosting Miss World Philippines Say He Should Make A Comeback At GMA-7

A COUPLE OF readers wrote to us saying they saw Richard Gutierrez hosting Miss World Philippine Coronation Night on GMA-7 last Sunday and although they feel that the staging was lackluster, they all feel that Richard should make a comeback in an acting role at GMA, his erstwhile home studio, since he looks even handsomer and fitter now than before he left GMA.

And we agree. Compared to other lead actors that they have now, Richard definitely has much more K (karapatan) in doing lead roles in their soaps and even movies. We know Richard said he took a leave then because of burnout, but it turned out he just followed his inamorata Sarah Lahbati to Switzerland to give birth to their son, Zion.

Richard’s son is now one of the most well loved babies in local showbiz, judging from the positive reaction of fans to his internet photos, so we don’t think he’s being a young dad will pose any problem if he’d seriously want to pursue his career again. As for Sarah, she’s now with Viva and ABS-CBN and Direk Carlo Caparas is giving her a starring role in the movie, “Kamandag ng Droga”, currently being filmed and very timely with Pres. Duterte’s Operation Tokhang drive against the drug menace.

Actually, Richard tried to make a comeback via TV5’s “Ang Panday”, and we all know what happened to that ill conceived project that was also aired before as a teleserye and was also a flop then. Maybe GMA-7 should now cook up a new more interesting primetime project for him since his mom, Annabelle Rama, has also kissed and made up with GMA exec Anette Gozon with whom she had a rift before.
