Why Kim Molina cries whenever Regine Velasquez is around
Comedian Jerald Napoles recently outed girlfriend, singer-actress Kim Molina about being so in awe of Songbird Regine Velasquez that she always would cry whenever she is around.
Molina shared a short video of her recent guesting on “Magandang Buhay” through her Instagram post on January 13 where Napoles revealed that his girlfriend would suddenly feel emotional in the presence of Velasquez.

“Kapag nakikita niya si ate (Velasquez) umiiyak siya, eh. Parang may atraso si ate sa kanya. Umiiyak siya talaga. ‘Yung parang… sabi ko sa kanya, umiiyak ka palagi kapag nakikita mo si Ate Reg. Baka nao-awkward na si Ate Regs sa iyo,” Napoles said in the video. (When she sees Regine she cries. It was as if Regine did something wrong to her. She’s really crying. It’s like… I told her, you are always crying when you see Regine. She might feel awkward already).
Molina explained her emotional state stemmed from her memory when she was younger and her father, who is also her music trainer, would tell her what to do to improve her singing.
She recalled that Velasquez was her inspiration, even though sometimes she could not reach her idol’s high notes.
As she was explaining, Velasquez sneaked behind her and Molina could only sigh in disbelief as fresh tears crept into her eyes when she saw the MB host.
“Oh, my God,” said Molina, adding that she was led to believe by MB hosts Jolina Magdangal and Melai Cantiveros that Velasquez could not join them that day.
“Kasi po naaalala ko talaga noong bata po ako, ‘yung tatay ko po gusto niya ma-gets ko po ‘yung kakantahin ninyo. Tapos po, kapag aaralin ko, itataas nyo uli so mahihirapan po ako uli. So, ‘yung paghihirap ko po noong bata ako, naaalala ko po ‘yun, eh,” she recalled. (It’s because I remember when I was a kid, my father would ask me to reach the song that you will sing. Then, she would sing it high so it will be hard for me to copy. So, all those hardships when I was a kid, I remember that).
“Sabi po, nu’ng bata po kayo ay nilulublob kayo sa tubig. Ginawa din po sa akin ‘yun ng tatay ko. Pero sa Saudi po ako lumaki sa disyerto po ako nilublob,” she said in jest. (It’s said that when you were a kid, you were immersed in water. That was also done to me by my father. But I grew up in Saudi so I was immersed in the desert).
After that, she did a short duet with Velasquez.
Molina called her “Magandang Buhay” guesting her “BEST DAY EVER!”
“Kahit na-prank ng Magandang Buhay fam tapos pina sample pa sa harap niya jusko po. Sanay po akong kumanta kahit todo emote pero di ko inasahang sasabay siya.. yung kilabot kooooo!!! Dear ate @reginevalcasid, I do believe na warm up na po ako today opo. Sa susunod ready na po ako pramis talaga kaya ko na po, opo,” she said. (Even though I was pranked by Magandang Buhay family, then was asked to do a sample in front of her. I am used to singing with full emotion but I didn’t expect that she will sing with me… what a thrill. Dear Regine, I do believe I was warmed up today so it’s okay. In the next episode I am ready, promise, I really can). EDV
