Barbie Forteza And Her Four 'Meant To Be' Leading Men Enjoying So Much Popularity They Deserve To Star In Their Own Full Length Movie

IN OUR last dinner with Regal’s Mother Lily, we urged her to produce a movie for Barbie Forteza and her four leading men in “Meant to Be”: Ken Chan, Jak Roberto, Ivan Dorschner and Addy Raj. Their show is such a big hit they now have a huge legion of fans who follow them in their personal appearances and mall shows.

“Oo nga, Mother, dun sa last mall show nila sa San Jose del Monte, 15,000 people ang dumumog sa kanila,” says one writer who was with us. “Sobrang lakas nila ngayon and since hindi na gumagawa ng movies ang GMA Films, ikaw na ang gumawa, kahit co-prod with GMA, para you can take advantage of their popularity now. Si Barbie, matagal nang ripe for stardom since ‘Half Sisters’. Noon pa dapat binigyan yan ng movie.”

Meantime, “Meant to Be” continues to soar in the ratings because of the kilig factor that Barbie has with each of her leading men who are competing for her heart and attention: Ethan (Ivan Dorschner), Yuan (Ken Chan), Jai (Addy Raj) and Andoy (Jak Roberto). Each love team has its own group of fans rooting for them and wondering who’ll be the lucky guy to win Barbie as Billie’s love. Will their rivalry ruin the real life friendship the four guys have with each other? How about their so-called Bro code? Will this work or will they be bitter rivals whose rule will be to each his own?
