Gabby Eigenmann Totally Enjoying His Flamboyant Transgender Role As Duquessa, Mortal Enemy Of Glaiza De Castro In 'Contessa'

GABBY EIGENMANN was thought to have died in his role as Vito Imperial in “Contessa”. He is the mortal enemy of Glaiza de Castro who plays Contessa. But wait, he’s now back with a vengeance. And whereas before, he is just a close queen as Vito, he now comes back in a totally different characterization as a transgender called Duquessa Dolce Vita. So it’s not just the lead character, Bea, who gets transformed as Contessa but also the villain, Vito, as Duquessa. So who will now be the more deadly one: Contessa or Duquessa?

Gabby is glad because netizens are saying that “pasabog talaga ang pagbabalik ni Vito as Duquessa”. He started by killing Glaiza’s bodyguards and sending her a dead rat which Glaiza thought came from Gabby’s sister, Lauren Young.

Netizens say Glaiza should work double time as Gabby is so good in his interpretation of Duquessa. “Ang galing-galing talaga niyang magbading. At hindi basta bading kundi susyal na bading. Kakaiba ang atake niya sa role niya.”

The show’s director, Albert Langitan, feels he is so fortunate to have very good actors in the show, inclduing Geoff Eigenmann, Tetchie Agbayani, Chanda Romero, Jak Roberto, Karel Marquez. “Pero siempre, sina Glaiza at Gabby ang banner characters ng ‘Contessa’ at acting duel din ito para sa kanilang dalawa.”
