I was pleasantly surprised to bump into Roxanne Guinoo at the mall. I didn’t notice her right away but it was so nice of her to greet me. I have fond memories of our Boracay Halloween trip a few years ago. She has been on hiatus to focus on her hubby (Elton Yap) and kids (Reine, 5, and Reilly, 3). But she does not look like a mother at all. Roxanne has not lost her charms. The Kapamilya sweetheart is all set for her comeback in the ABS-CBN teleserye “Walang Iwanan.” Roxanne is lovelier, the second time around.

Here’s my tête-à-tête with Roxanne:


What can the audience expect from you as you make a comeback?

A different Roxanne. Since I am a mom and wife now, I have a deeper reservoir of emotions to tap for my acting.


What limitations did your husband give you regarding projects?

I have a very supportive husband. He and my in-laws are excited to watch my new show. In terms of limitations, it was my own choice not to do intimate scenes anymore because I love and respect my husband and kids so much. Even if some people look down on actors, I love this job. I want to be a good role model to my kids.

How have marriage and motherhood changed you?

My priorities have changed. I put my family first. I’m proud to say that I’m a hands-on mom. I believe that parents should always be involved in their kids’ lives, especially during the formative years. I refuse to let gadgets get in the way of our quality time as a family. Time goes by so fast, that’s why I want to give them all my time and attention.

Would you be willing to work with your ex, Jake Cuenca?

If my home network decides to make a good project for us, why not? That wouldn’t be a problem. I am so thankful that ABS-CBN welcomed me back so I will accept any project they give me. I am not after fame or anything. I just want to continue pursuing my passion, which is acting.

Beleaguered JM



Speaking of second chances in the biz, too bad that JM de Guzman seems to have blown the opportunity to make a comeback.

I really thought he got his groove back after the success of his movie with Angelica Panganiban, “That Thing Called Tadhana.” Unfortunately, he was not able to sustain it. JM has been replaced by Jericho Rosales in the movie “Walang Forever,” with Jennylyn Mercado.

Hopefully, he can still get his act together before it’s too late.

His charisma and talent are precious and shouldn’t be wasted.
