What haunts Rhian about ‘the one that got away’
I can’t think of a better way to start 2018 than by featuring one of my few fave interviewees, Rhian Ramos. The Kapuso sweetheart stands out because she never gives “show biz” answers.
Rhian is all revved up for the new year as she stars in GMA 7’s sexy romantic comedy, “The One That Got Away,” which premieres on Jan. 15 after “Kambal, Karibal.” It’s about three femmes fatales (Rhian, Max Collins and Lovi Poe) who have the same ex-boyfriend (Dennis Trillo) and are still hung up on him.
Romantic fools can totally relate to the series’ intriguing storyline. It makes me ponder and wonder: “How can we keep on searching for something we already found many love stories ago?”
Here’s my chat with Rhian:
How do you deal with thoughts that haunt you about “the one that got away”? First: Life isn’t always up to you. Don’t beat yourself up.
Second: It isn’t over till it’s over.
Third: They may have gotten away for a good reason.
What have you left unsaid to him? Probably the same thing that everyone that has left unsaid—which is, telling the actual person that he’s “the one that got away.”
What was the most important lesson you learned in 2017? That I can do with being a little less patient.
What’s something you haven’t done before that you want to do this year? Live alone without any help.
If you could travel back in time, what would you have done differently? Nothing. There isn’t anything you can’t turn around in the present and no one needs a time machine for that.
What do you hate about love? The part where you realize that someone else has so much power to hurt your feelings. Ugh. Yup, I hate that.
What was your most embarrassing moment? There’s a lot, but my first couple of TV appearances take the cake, because I remember running offstage while the music was still playing (for a dance production), so I could vomit from the stage fright.
Would you rather fall for a gay man or a lesbian? Probably a gay man. I see myself as a girl with masculine energy, so I would need the opposing feminine energy around.
Which would you choose: Love without sex, or sex without love? Love without the sex, for sure! Love lasts.
What’s your shoutout to 2018? Dear 2018, I’m ready to be your favorite person. Can you please be my favorite year?
