EDGAR ALLAN GUZMAN with Ruru, Rayver, Buboy, Ms. Rei, Cassy, Sanya, Isabel, Thia & Patricia


EDGAR ALLAN GUZMAN, or EA to his friends, was launched as one of the five new brand ambassadors of Beautederm,  along with Thia Thomalia, Buboy Villar, Isabel Ortega and Patricia Tumulak. 

“I’m so happy and proud to be part of the Beautederm family of endorsers,” he says. 

“I really use various Beautederm products as they’re the best for health and wellness at napakabait ng aming boss and CEO na si Ms. Rhea Anicoche-Tan who is so generous to all of us.”

Of course, one of the first questions writers asked him was about his girlfriend Shaira Diaz.   

Will wedding bells soon be ringing for them? 

“Yes, we’ve talked about it but definitely, it will not happen anytime soon,” he says. 

“I have no doubt mangyayari yung settling down, pero malayo pa yun as of now. 

"We’re still more devoted to our careers. Masaya pa kami at satisfied sa ginagawa namin, so ito muna ang aming priority habang patuloy na dumarating ang blessings.”

EA is never without an assignment as a Kapuso actor. 

He has just finished the hit afternoon drama, “Nakarehas na Puso”, with Jean Garcia, and is a regular guest in such GMA drama shows as “Magpakailanman” and “Tadhana”. 

He has also gone back to singing and has just written a song that he himself will record.

As for Shaira, she was in the hit primetime show, “Lolong”, and just did a movie with David Licauco, “Without You”. 

They just celebrated their 10th anniversary as boyfriend-girlfriend last month and some folks think that they’re already living in together. 

“No we’re not,” EA says. “I just bought my family our own house and Shaira still lives with her own family. 

"Natatawa nga kami when we are asked kung kailan kami magkaka-baby. But definitely, dapat magpakasal muna kami bago magka-baby.” 

EA says they have not indulged in premarital sex like other young couples do. 

“Early in our relationship, actually, nililigawan ko pa lang siya, she already told me that she wants to preserve her virginity until after marriage. 

"Isa yun sa mga hinangaan ko sa kanya at dahilan para lalo ko siyang mahalin.”

For him, Shaira’s aim to be pure before marriage is admirable.  

“Kasi, sa panahon ngayon, bihira na ang may ganung principle, di ba? 

"So for me, it’s wow! I’m not lying, you can ask her about it.  

"And ako naman, I just respect her decision. For me, she, and her decision, are both very sacred.”  

So is he not tempted to find sexual satisfaction with other partners? 

“It’s hard, I know. Alam naman yan ng mga kalalakihan. 

"But mas nananaig ang respeto at pagmamahal ko sa kanya. 

"I promised her na hindi ako matutuksong tumikim sa iba, hindi ako magluluko, so, siya na lang palagi ang inilalagay ko sa isip ko. 

"Umabot kami sa ten years na mataas ang pagpapaghalaga namin sa isa’t isa and I want it to stay that way.”
