Alden Richards Didn't Know He's Getting Hospitalized Will Spark A Conflict Between His Very Possessive Fans Just When His New Primetime Soap, 'Destined To Be Yours', Is About To Start Airing

ALDEN RICHARDS has no inkling that his being hospitalized due to throat infection will spark a conflict between his very possessive fans. One faction of his fans got jealous when it was reported that he allowed another group of his admirers to visit him in his hospital room while the others were banned. Because of this, some fans threatened to withdraw their support from him. Alden has to explain to the jealous fans that no such thing as him favoring some fans over the others ever happened.

A few days ago, he finally returned to “Eat Bulaga” looking a bit slimmer but back to his former bubbly self. He’s back just in time to promote his first primetime soap with Maine Mendoza, “Destined to Be Yours”, that will start airing this Monday night. He was actually having high fever during the show’s presscon on Valentine’s Day but he still showed up to prove he’s a professional.

He was taken to the hospital right after the presscon and his few days rest on his hospital bed did him a lot of good. He told his fans: “By God’s grace I am healed. Thank you Lord and thank you for the prayers po.” But his doctors told him to take it easy and not to accept too heavy a workload as his health would surely suffer. Whatever he earns from all his ‘rakets’, he’ll just spend them on doctors and medicines.

Alden admits he and Maine are both eager to find out how the viewers will receive “Destined to Be Yours”. “Siempre, first time naming mapapanood sa isang primetime series kaya kabado kami. Ibang-iba naman ito sa Kalyeserye ng ‘Eat Bulaga’. One thing we can promise is maganda talaga ang show at pinaghusayan ng lahat ng kasama namin dito so we’re proud of it at di kami mapapahiya sa viewers.”

Does he believe that he and Maine might really be destined to be for each other? “Yes, naiisip namin yun. Kasi, destiny naman talaga ang dahilan kung bakit nag-meet kami sa ‘Eat Bulaga’. Hindi naman plinano yun ng kahit sino. Basta nag-click kami sa viewers who then supported us as a love team. But we don’t allow the expectations of our fans to pressure us para maging kami. As of now, basta ine-enjoy lang namin yung sitwasyon namin, our moments together. What you see in us now, totoo yun, hindi put on, everything is real. At ngayong lagi kaming magkasama sa taping ng ‘Destined to Be Yours’, we’re open to other possibilities kaya sana, panoorin nyo and don’t miss each episode of our show.”
