Talent Manager Arnold Vegafria On His Talents Megan Young, Carla Abellana And The Newest One, Ruffa Gutierrez And His Plans For Her

ARNOLD VEGAFRIA is the current franchise holder of Miss World Philippines so he will be leaving for China in November to attend the coronation night of the new Miss World there. “I will leave just a day or two before the pageant night, but our representative, Laura Lehmann, will be staying there for about a month,” he says.

Megan Young, who is also managed by him, will be hosting the affair. So when will Megan have a new show on GMA-7 after she did the first season of “Alyas Robin Hood”?

“Magkakaroon siya ng bagong soap, na siya ang bida,” he says. “Hindi nagkaroon ng follow up agad kasi she has to leave for abroad muna to try some possibilities there.”

We tell him Carla Abellana did well as a host in the last Miss World Philippines pageant. “Ang ganda niya, ano? Kasi pumayat na. Also, kinarir talaga ng glam team niya ang pagho-host niya roon. Pati make up at gowns na sinuot niya, top of the line lahat. Magkakaroon na rin siya ng bagong show soon.”

About Ruffa, what are his plans for her? “Alam mo, ever since she joined Miss World, naging big fan na ako ni Ruffa. Through the years, we’ve become good friends to the point na we’ve become intuitive about each other’s personal and business dealings. I talked to her mom about my feelings about Ruffa’s other potentials and I want to thank Tita Annabelle for trusting me at pumayag siyang tulungan ko si Ruffa to turn her other unfulfilled dreams in acting and hosting into reality. She’s also a perfect endorser so we’re cooking up more endorsements for her. Gusto rin niyang mag-try to do making a prestige movie to be shown in film festivals abroad, so we will pursue that also. We’re both excited with the many possibilities na puede naming gawin about her career.”

Annabelle says he will also manage the careers of her grandchildren: Lorin and Venice, plus Zion, the son of Richard, and Aria, the daughter of Elvis. “Yes, but hindi pa namin officially napag-uusapan. So we need to sit down first muna to formalize everything about them.”
