Barbie Forteza Getting So Nervous As Playdate Of 'This Time I'll Be Sweeter' With Ken Chan Nears, But Certain That People Will Enjoy It

BARBIE FORTEZA and Kim Rodriguez are co-stars in Regal’s young romance, “This Time I’ll Be Sweeter”, that will have its premiere night at SM Megamall on Tuesday and opens nationwide on November 8. They have something in common as both of them are ex-GF’s of Kiko Estrada, son of Gary Estrada and Cheska Diaz. Barbie and Kim recently taped an episode of “Celebrity Bluff” to help promote their movie. And were they surprised when they saw someone also guesting in the show simultaneously with them. Who else but Kiko Estrada himself!

So how did it all turn out? “Okay naman. We were all civil to each other. Nag-usap naman kami and past is past na lang. Move on na kaming lahat.”

In the story of “This Time I’ll Be Sweeter”, she was deceived twice by Tristan, the character played be Ken Chan who then returns to her for a third time asking for yet another chance. In real life, is she willing to give anyone a second or third chance?

“Naku, in real life, sa first time pa lang that you broke my heart, burado ka na agad sa akin,” she laughs. “Sorry po, pero hindi po mahaba ang pasencia ko, e. But in the movie maganda yung naging twist sa relationship namin ni Ken Chan. Siempre, hindi ko puedeng i-reveal dito. Kailangan, panoorin nyo dahil tiyak na kikiligin kayo. We both want to thank pala all the people sa various malls na pinupuntahan namin to promote the show sa kanilang mainit na pagtanggap sa buong cast ng ‘This Time I’ll Be Sweeter’. Tuwang-tuwa nga si Ms. Roselle Monteverde dahil all the people say that they can’t wait to see the movie when it opens on November 8. Kinakabahan na nga ako habang papalapit ang playdate ng movie namin.”

She’s also thankful that her home network, GMA-7, is very helpful in promoting the movie. “Talagang malaya kaming nakakapag-promote sa lahat ng shows ng network. At hindi lang yun, pati mga kasamahan naming Kapuso stars, nagpa-plug on video na panoorin ang ‘This Time I’ll Be Sweeter’ like sina Ms. Ai Ai de las Alas, Alden Richards, Julie Ann San Jose, Carla Abellana, Glaiza de Castro, Ruru Madrid, Mikael Daez, Gabbi Garcia at marami pang iba. So gusto ko silang pasalamatang lahat sa pagtulong nila. Panoorin nyo pala ang the making of ‘This Time I’ll Be Sweeter’ na available na ngayon on youtube. Tiyak na matutuwa kayo roon. Andaming nag-feedback sa comment section at lahat sila, pinupuri kami ni Ken at excited na raw silang mapanood ang movie.”
