Katrina Halili Puts Love Affairs On The Back Burner In Favor Of Her Career And Daughter Katie

KATRINA HALILI maybe one of the most hated contravidas today on local TV because of her effective portrayal of the evil and manipulative Scarlet in “Sa Piling ni Nanay”, but off cam, she’s a devoted and doting mother ni her only daughter, Katie.

“Ang sarap kaya maging nanay,” says Katrina. “My daughter gave a positive direction to my life. She made my life complete. Sa lahat ng ginagawa ko ngayon, ang iniisip ko lagi, yung makakabuti para sa kanya, for her future.”

It’s because of Katie that she is putting love on the back burner. “Okay na yung walang love-love. Mas priority ko na talaga ang daughter ko. And my career. Sila ang nagbibigay ng fulfillment sa buhay ko these days.”

In “Sa Piling ni Nanay”, Katrina as Scarlet continues to wreak havoc on the life of Yasmien Kurdi as Ysabel who is in jail. She orders someone named Rose to poison Yasmien but this did not succeed. Yasmien ends up in the hospital and Jillian Ward as Katherine visits her but they don’t get to see each other.

Rose tries to strangle Yasmien but the prison Mayora, who is paid by Gabby Eigenmann as Benedict to protect her, comes along and rescues her. Mark Herras as Jonas has a heart problem and agrees to wed Katrina, but on their wedding day, Gabby planted guns in Katrina’s car and she’s arrested by cops. She ends up in the same jail where Yasmien is and they have another face off and more catfights that viewers of their hit soap just enjoy to watch.
