Solenn Heussaff Will Miss Husband This Christmas, Her Second Christmas To Endorse CDO Premium Holiday Ham

SOLENN HEUSSAFF is thankful that the passing year 2017 has been a good one for her and her family. She’s happily married to her husband Nico Bolzico and her younger brother, Erwan, is now also happily married to Anne Curtis. But it’s not only their love life that is doing good, but also their careers, with Nico currently an internet sensation for his comic antics and a businessman who has businesses all over the country.

Solenn is better known as an actress, what with her seen in two regular primetime teleseryes this year, “Encantadia” and “Alyas Robin Hood”. She’s also hosting “Taste Buddies” and “All Star Videoke Challenge”. But Solenn is actually wearing many other hats as she is also a singer, a painter, a writer, a fashion and commercial model, a lifestyle host, a blogger, an accomplished makeup artist.

Through it all, no matter how busy she is, she still looks forward to Christmas. “I’m a true Christmas fan!” she says. “I love singing Christmas songs, putting Christmas decorations, wrapping Christmas presents for people I love and care for. Christmas is for the family so I always make sure we spend Christmas together, we eat together as a whole family.”

Her family all loves Christmas ham so they always have CDO Premium Holiday Ham on their table. “We love it as it’s so different from other brands in the market because of CDO Premium Holiday Ham’s whole boneless meat from the hind leg that makes it all its own. Other hams in the market are only molded from different cuts of pork. Since it’s made of whole meat, it can be smoked in ham nets and it definitely has no extenders. I hate extenders in food. I love that CDO Premium Holiday Ham has absolutely no extenders!”

She really loves to eat CDO Ham. “Ako talaga, from the start, I only endorse products I believe in. Favorite ko talaga CDO Holiday Ham with cheese ball and pandesal, same sa ginagawa ng mom ko. It reminds me of Christmas traditions in our family.”

This year, like every other year, Christmas will be spent with her immediate family. “Usually, every Christmas Eve, si Erwann (Heussaff, Solenn’s brother) ang nagluluto. It’s just him, me, Anne (Curtis, her sister-in-law), my sister, my brother-in-law; very small lang kami.”

This year they will also be joined by another sibling from Singapore, Solenn enthusiastically shares. “So complete kami and after Christmas dinner, opening na ng gifts!”

Solenn, however, will be missing someone special this year as her outrageously funny and handsome hubby Nico will be in his home country of Argentina for a month. She was all set to go with him but decided against it.

“Dapat nga, sasama ako sa kanya. It’s part of my duty din as a wife. Pero nung makita ko ‘yung mga gagawin kong work for next year, sabi ko kay Nico na it’s not a good time for me to leave. May one week off ako, pero papuntang Argentina pa lang, 30 hours na ‘yung trip. Not worth it na nandun lang ako ng four days.”

The two have gotten used to being apart during the Christmas holidays but still cannot help missing each other. Fortunately, technology today makes it easier for them to communicate. Solenn also confesses: “Okay lang naman sa amin, kasi siyempre his family, nandun. And hindi naman ako selfish or possessive. Buong year nandito na siya sa akin. It’s just one month – every December lang.”

One thing’s for sure, Solenn’s career is anything but relaxed as as 2018 is set to be another big year for her. She has two new movies in the works, her "Taste Buddies" lifestyle show that is still going strong, and another show called "All Star Videoke" has been extended. Not to mention her sold out Kalsada painting exhibit, part of the proceeds went to the Kalipay Foundation that supports street kids. It will surely be followed by another run. She’s currently looking into giving art lessons to abused children first quarter next year.
