Eugene Domingo gives Pokwang love advice: ‘Wag kang sumuko’
Actresses Eugene Domingo and Pokwang are undeniably good at their craft, but how about at love? Starring in the upcoming comedy film “Becky and Badette,” the duo sat on “Fast Talk with Boy Abunda” to talk about their film and their love lives.
Program host Boy Abunda bluntly asked Pokwang if she could live without her love for men, to which the comedienne replied, “Wala muna. Sinabi ko naman na magfo-focus ako sa negosyo. Magpapayaman muna ako saka ‘yung mga anak ko.”
Pokwang broke up with her ex-partner Lee O’Brian in December 2021, and as the actress becomes reluctant to love again, Domingo offered advice to her co-star and friend to still have faith that love will find her eventually.
“Ang piece of advice ko lang sa kanya huwag siyang sumuko. Kasi hindi naman totoo, ‘yung sinasabi na ‘Kaya ko. Kaya ko ako lang mag-isa.’ Darating at darating ‘yung panahon na ‘yung dalawa mong anak magkakaroon sila ng sarili nilang mga pamilya,” Domingo told Pokwang.
“At gusto ko at pati na siguro ng iba mo pang mga kaibigan na may kasama ka din. Importante din na may kasama kang tatanda. Mag-eenjoy sa buhay sa lahat ng pinagsumikapan mo. Merong totoong magmamahal sayo,” she added.
Eugene Domingo’s love
Meanwhile, Domingo met the love of her life, Italian movie critic Danilo Bottoni, en route to her 50s, and they have been together for some seven years now.
“When Danilo and I first met, walang ayos ang buhok ko, dry na dry. Malungkot, I was just there; Parang lost, but (I was thinking) anyway, I’m here, so I might as well enjoy it. That was my state when he found me,” said Domingo in an interview in February.
Pokwang and Domingo’s upcoming film, “Becky and Badette,” follows two high school best friends who became famous over a story they made up about a former batchmate.
