Gabby Concepcion names Richard 'future son-in-law'
ANNABELLE Rama's pre-Valentine concert for Royale Era at Crowne Plaza last Saturday was a big success even if one of the main singers, Verni Varga, failed to show up as she got sick. So many other singers gamely took center stage to help her. Gabby Concepcion, Rico Puno, Nonoy Zuñiga and Marco Sison came to the rescue to perform with Pops Fernandez, Iya Villania, Pokwang and Rochelle Pangilinan. Arnell Ignacio did the opening number. KC Concepcion was there and joined her dad on stage. Gabby called Richard Gutierrez his son-in-law and plugged their movie "When I Met U." Gabby also called Annabelle and Eddie Gutierrez his "balae" and made everyone laugh.
Annabelle says she's very pleased with "When I Met U," which she says is a much better romantic movie than the first team-up of Richard and KC. "At least kasi ito, hindi minadali," she adds. "Doon sa una, after shooting, diretso pa sila sa dubbing at promo kaya pagod na pagod sila. Mas maganda rin ang script nito na mas naayos kaya talagang pulido, pati direction ni Joel Lamangan, mahusay talaga at very glossy ang kabuuan, kaya I'm sure mas magugustuhan din ito ng viewers kaysa 'For the First Time'. Mas marami itong kilig romantic moments at ang ending ng movie na ito, ang ganda-ganda."
"When I Met U" opens today in theaters nationwide. Meantime, whatever happened to her daughter Ruffa Gutierrez who's been absent in "The Buzz" for two Sundays now?
"She took a vacation in the States bago siya sumabak sa bagong show nila ni Ai Ai de las Alas na 'Ruffa and Ai'," explains Annabelle. "Daily show 'yun, so nag-rest muna siya. Wednesday morning ang balik niya at tuloy na sa trabaho agad kasi may briefing na sila and pictorial ni Ai Ai sa ABS para sa publicity photos ng 'Ruffa and Ai'. Then they'll do some promo and Ruffa will do a one-on-one interview kay Ai Ai for 'The Buzz' to be shown on Sunday, tapos the next day, start na ang morning show nila. Ruffa is also being asked by Kris Aquino to play sa 'Kapamilya Deal Or No Deal' kaya sabi niya, hindi pa man siya bumabalik at iniisip pa lang niya ang mga trabahong naghihintay sa kanya rito, pagod na raw siya."
