TOM RODRIGUEZ was asked in “Unang Hirit” if he’s ready to face the altar with his GF Carla Abellana and his answer was:

“Okay lang ako. Kaso nung tinanong ko siya, her reply is definitely no. Hindi ngayon kasi may pandemic. Siempre, she wants our wedding to be special. Ako, my only dream now is to be the one next to her. That’s my only requirement. Pero siyempre, I also want it to be special for her.”

We’re sure there are other couples whose wedding plans have been adversely affected by the worldwide health crisis. Everything now is so unsure.

The entertainment industry is so badly affected as no new movies are being made with theaters all closed down. Stars are practically jobless as there are also no tapings for regular shows going on.

Carla has a primetime soap with GMA-7, “Love of My Life”, which was enjoying high ratings before the lockdown. But she and the rest of the cast are not sure as to when they will resume taping for new episodes.

Meantime, when Carla was a guest in the online show, “Just In”, she shared the ordeal she went through when she got sick when they started taping “Love of My Life” last year.

“I noticed that despite my dieting and working out, I continue to gain so much weight. Nahihiya ako sa co-stars ko kasi very noticeable sa screen ang pagtaba ko at nasisira ang continuity ng mga eksena.

"It turned out I have a problem with my liver. Eventually, the doctors made the right diagnosis and now, I’ve regained my former weight. So we really should take good care of ourselves because health is really wealth.”
