DINGDONG DANTES is GMA's Primetime King. Now, he is also the certified King of Replays as he has two shows simultaneously being shown on the Kapuso Network right now.  

First is the love triangle drama, “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real”, where he shares topbilling with Maricel Soriano and Lovi Poe shown in GMA’s Afternoon Prime. 

And in the evening on primetime, his romance-drama with wifey Marian Rivera, “Endless Love”, is being shown on GMA Telebabad. 

His fans are no doubt pleased that they can watch him twice in one day, in the afternoon and in the evening. 

Some quarters continue to convince to run for the senate in the elections next year. 

They think he is a sure winner as he not only has a huge fan base, not only an accomplished actor, but also well known for his enviable family life with wife Marian Rivera and their two adorable kids, Zia and Ziggy.

“At si Dingdong, mas competent kaysa sa ibang mga aktor na na-elect sa senado,” says one supporter. "Very responsible family man pa."

“Nakatapos siya so he has a college degree, he’s very articulate and has a good heart in helping the needy gaya ng pinatutunayan niya sa pagtulong niya sa health workers and poor people sa panahon ngayon ng pandemya.” 

But we heard that the first one who is opposed for him to join politics is his own better half, Marian Rivera. 

Someone close to Marian says she prefers their family to have a simple life with their children. 

“Alam niyang compared to showbiz, mas magulo ang politika,” says someone close to her. “Mas priority nila talaga ni Dingdong ang family nila kaya nga ni ayaw nilang tumanggap ng teleserye habang may pandemya pa.”
