MANILA, Oct 5 (Mabuhay) –After going through several heartaches in recent years, including the dissolution of a previous marriage and the death of her mom, Ai Ai delas Alas now enjoys a shower of blessings, primarily with new shows and an upcoming movie.
Ai Ai is on her 25th year in the ‘biz and she marks it with a bang. She has just published a commemorative magazine “Ai Lab You” with issues running from August to December. She is also spearheading a fund-raising concert for the construction of the Kristong Hari church in Commonwealth, Quezon City.
No doubt, she is on cloud 9 nowadays and she could only attribute it all to the Lord.
“Sabi ko kasi kay Lord, kung magpapatuloy pa akong mag-artista eh, ibalik Niya ’yung magic ko. Kaya ayun baka binalik Niya ’yung magic, so I am really, really grateful,” she said.
Among her many projects, Ai Ai is excited over “Sunday PinaSaya,” which is now doing well in terms of ratings.
“Eto siguro ang time namin kaya successful ang show. So lahat siguro ng nangyayari eh, good karma din sa amin,” she said.
That said, Ai Ai admitted that she and her co-hosts Marian Rivera, Alden Richards, Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, Julie Anne San Jose, Barbie Forteza, Joey Paras, Valeen Montenegro and Jerald Napoles are still adjusting to the task.
“Actually pinagsabihan kami ni fatherhood (TAPE Inc.’s president and CEO Antonio P. Tuviera) na masyado kaming maingay, sigaw daw kami ng sigaw. Kasi wala pa kaming monitor sa studio kaya lahat kami nangangapa pa din,” she shared.
Another thing they aim to improve on in the coming days is rapport and comedic timing. “Kailangan kasi lahat kami tama ang ‘pag timing ng jokes dahil it’s either lulubog ’yung show namin or waley,” she said.
Ai Ai likes it that Willie Revillame’s show “Wowowin” has been moved right after theirs.
“Kasi hindi na kailangan ilipat ng tao ’yung channel after ng ‘Sunday PinaSaya.’ ’Yung show niya ang kasunod kaagad so parang tuloy tuloy lang ang saya,” she said. (MNS)
