Triplets Manilyn Reynes, Sheryl Cruz And Tina Paner Happy That After 20 Years, They Are Together Again

MANILYN REYNES, SHERYL CRUZ AND TINA PANER used to be called the Triplets during their “That’s Entertainment” days in the early 90s. Eventually, their group disbanded, each had her own solo career and they all got married and became moms. It’s only Mane who’s still married to husband Aljon Jimenez and they have three kids. Both Sheryl and Tina are now separated from their respect husbands and both of them have one daughter each.

There have been attempts before for them to be reunited but all proved to be unsuccessful. Now, GMA-7 succeeds in putting them all together again in one show, “Meant to Be”, to support GMA’s current top teen actress, Barbie Forteza, on primetime.

“We’re so happy that after 20 years, we’re together again,” says Tina. “Matagal nang hinihiling na magkasama kami uling tatlo, laging di natutuloy but this time, thanks to GMA-7, nagkatotoo na.”

So how are they now? “Hindi nagbago ang samahan namin,” says Sheryl. “Masaya pa rin kami sa set, pero mas may maturity at seryoso na.”

“Masarap magtrabaho kapag friends mo mga kasama mo,” says Manilyn. “Malaking tulong na we’re familiar na with each other. Mas nagkakaintindihan na kami and we have a happy set kasi it’s so much fun to work with them.”

When asked to sing during the show’s presscon, they sang a number a capella while seated at the presidential table. In “Meant to Be”, they also used to be part of a singing group. Manilyn as Amelia and Tina as Suzy are fraternal twins.

They ask their friend Sheryl as Beatriz to join their trio, but Manilyn had to leave the group when Keempee de Leon got her preggers, so their group disbanded and there is a strained relationship between the sisters. Don’t miss the premiere of “Meant to Be” this Monday, January 6, replacing “Someone to Watch Over Me” that ends this Friday night.
