17 celeb quotes of 2017
Here’s the continuation of my column’s 17 most memorable celeb quotes in 2017.
DINGDONG DANTES: Time well spent with family is better than money well spent elsewhere.
RHIAN RAMOS: What I dislike about fame is that it’s hard to turn it off. Sometimes, the amount of energy I spend in a game show or performance is expected of me when I’m doing the groceries. But, don’t get me wrong, I like skipping the line at the bank.
RICHARD YAP: My unsolicited advice to men with mistresses is that the novelty will eventually wear off. You will always go back to the original, because a mistress just brings more trouble than pleasure.
DEREK RAMSAY: I am a sucker for love. I’ve fallen in love, and I got hurt many times. But, I’m the type who would get back on my feet and love again.
MATTEO GUIDICELLI: Women in general are hard to understand, especially their quirks and moods. But, men can’t live without them. They complete a man’s life.
BELA PADILLA: When I decided to venture into screenwriting, I joined Ricky Lee’s workshop. He told me to write any time of the day and to forego the idea of “writer’s block.” And to always walk the road less traveled.
KEAN CIPRIANO: I don’t know exactly how my wife Chynna (Ortaleza) tamed me. I guess when you meet the girl you want to spend the rest of your life with, you automatically calm down.
BOY ABUNDA: There are some stories in my life that are better left untold—those that would cause other people pain. I’ve learned the hard way that when you forgive, you must also forget.
In my [defunct] show “Private Conversations with Boy Abunda,” I talked about Tatay being born out of wedlock. Nanay was irked. She admonished me curtly, “Not everything that is true is for broadcast.”
“I, too, have to deal with my personal demons,” I reasoned out. “Your father was a good man. He was no demon,” she retorted. I shut up and “disintegrated” in front of her.
