GABBI GARCIA is definitely an asset in GMA-7’s new weekend show, “All Out Sundays” or AOS. She sings, dances and also does good hosting. We noticed that she even has better chemistry with Alden Richards than the one GMA has chosen to pair with him, Julie Ann San Jose.

When Gabbi was paired with Alden in introducing one segment, she proved to be much a more bubbly, lively host, specially when you consider that Alden seems to be feeling low that time and lacks energy.

In his dance numbers, we felt Alden was just going through the motions but he lacks the dynamism and that extra spark needed to make his dancing really more alive and energetically contagious. Someone quips: “Napagod at napuyat kasi yan sa birthday party he hosted for his fans in Enchanted Kingdom last night.”

Gabbi was a part of the erstwhile “Sunday Pinasaya” and she feels fortunate that she’s one of those chosen to be retained in “AOS”. Some of her colleagues there were not as lucky as she is.

She’s also happy that she and her family were able to move to their new home in the South where they spent their first Christmas.

“Pinagtulungan namin yun ng mom ko,” she says. “It has to be in the south para malapit sa airport kasi she’s a flight attendant.”

So if she didn’t get to showbiz, she’d follow in her mom’s footsteps? “No. Actually, mas gusto kong maging pilot, but showbiz happened and I’m glad na hindi ako nababakante.

Aside from ‘AOS’, I’m also in primetime in ‘Beautiful Justice’ na lumalaban daw talaga sa katapat namin pagdating sa ratings, kaya nasusulit lahat ng pagod namin in doing an action-drama.

"I just really love that show kasi first time ko makatrabaho dito sina Yasmien Kurdi and Bea Binene and naging maganda ang samahan namin. We’re really close now, like sisters.”

In the story, it’s already been revealed that Bing Loyzaga, her mother, is actually the villainous Ninang, but Gabbi cannot accept it and is in denial.

“Marami pang mangyayaring pasabog sa series kaya abangan nyo. Marami ring dalang surprises si Alice Dixson as Black Rose at yun namang character ni Valeen Montenegro, lalo pang nagiging vicious sa kasamaan.”

We tell her that we enjoyed the movie she did with her real life BF of two years now, Khalil Ramos, “LSS, Last Song Syndrome”, a romcom-musical that was an entry in the Pista ng Pelikuland Pilipino where they get to do some song numbers.

“Nakakatuwa nga kasi very positive ang feedback sa movie namin. So that’s what I want to do sana in the new year, I want to make more movies.”

Well, she’s really lucky because both her career and her lovelife are currently both doing well.
