Tom Rodriguez Leaving To Spend Christmas Holidays In The U.S. But Has To Be Back Quickly For 'Someone To Watch Over Me'

TOM RODRIGUEZ is doing some advanced taping for his hit soap on GMA-7, “Someone to Watch Over Me”, since he is leaving next week to spend Christmas with his family in the States, especially with his dad who’s battling the big C. Because of this, he won’t be spending the holidays with his inamorata, Carla Abellana.

“Hindi naman ako magtatagal,” he says. “I have to come back right after the holidays and resume taping for ‘Someone to Watch Over Me’. This will be a good break for me kasi very emotionally draining ang mga eksena ko sa show lately. My Alzheimer’s disease as TJ has become irreversible at maraming episodes na nagiging violent ako dahil sa confusion ko about what’s happening to me. Hindi ko na makilala si Lovi Poe as my wife, Joanna, at mas hinahanap ko si Max Collins as Irene, my past girlfriend, causing a lot of trouble for the people around me.”

This week, Lovi implores Max to stay with Tom because he gets violent every time he wakes up and Max is not around. He even asks Max to marry him. Lovi gives her wedding ring to Max to pretend that she’s really Tom’s wife while Lovi says that she is just his caregiver. Max even tells Tom to treat his caregiver well. Lovi teaches how to cook Tom’s favorite dishes. All her relatives are against Lovi’s decision to make Max appear as the wife of Tom but she is doing this act of supreme sacrifice for the peace of mind of her sick husband.
