BARBIE FORTEZA used to be part of “Sunday Pinasaya” for four years, but when it was replaced by “All Out Sundays”, she was not included among its original mainstays. 

Now, after a year, GMA-7 has made her join the new show and she was officially introduced last Sunday by Alden Richards and Rayver Cruz as their new co-host in “All Out Sundays”.

“I’m so glad to be now a part of this show,” says Barbie. “Fan ako ng ‘All Out Sundays’ and I really watch it regularly, so I’m so happy and honored na kasama na ako rito ngayon. 

"And thanks for the warm welcome. I’m excited and I cannot wait to get the chance to dance with everyone in the show.”

It’s a memorable week for Barbie as her primetime series, “Anak ni Waray vs. Anak ni Biday” also started airing its fresh original episodes last week. 

“We shot it sa lock in taping and I’m glad that the feedback from viewers is very positive. They all say matagal na nilang inaabangan ang airing ng aming bagong episodes kasi curious na silang malaman kung ano ang nangyari sa characters namin ni Kate Valdez as Ginalyn and Caitlyn.”

February 14 is also very memorable for Barbie as it’s not only the day she returned on a Sunday noontime show, but it’s also Valentine’s Day and her boyfriend of three years, Jak Roberto, surprised her with a fabulous date held right at the back of his pick up truck. 

“Nagulat ako kasi nag-effort talaga siya at ginawa niyang lounge yung likod ng truck niya, complete with beautiful flowers, colorful balloons and a special dinner,” says Barbie. 

And for Jak, she wrote this special message for him in her social media account on the day of hearts:

 “You really managed to surprise me on this special day. Haaaay nako @jakroberto. Tatlong taon na tayo, pero feeling ko, nililigawan mo pa rin ako. I love you so much. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!”

You can really say that Barbie is so blessed and fortunate as both her career and lovelife are really going on well. Not every star is that lucky!
