Judy Ann Santos begs off from Piolo Pascual

October 10, 2011

THERE was a story where Judy Ann Santos shared that if there comes an opportunity for her to work again with Piolo Pascual, she would rather pass on that chance.

It’s a surprise on why she’s hesitant considering she’s back in business coming on the heels of her pregnancy and giving birth.

Actually, she never lost her spark as a star. Evidence of this is she’s still getting quality offers, including the movie, My Househusband with husband Ryan Agoncillo and numerous endorsements.

But it seems that with Piolo, it would take cosmic effort to convince her to work with him again.

Judy Ann Santos nervous about ‘Junior Master Chef’?

June 11, 2011

Actress Judy Ann Santos is looking forward to her television comeback through the upcoming ABS-CBN show “Junior Master Chef: Pinoy Edition” (JMC).

Although she is excited to go back to work, Judy Ann Santos said she is also nervous because this time, she won’t come back as an actress but as a host.

“Merong kaba kasi ngayon lang talaga ako magho-host, at reality show pa na puro bata. Dapat maging very careful sa mga sasabihin at sa mga galaw,” she said.

Santos revealed that she has been watching the Australian edition of JMC to be able to learn how to properly deal with children.

“Pinapanood ko ‘yong Australian version. Wala kasi talaga akong alam sa hosting kaya dapat matutunan ko ‘yung how to deal with kids, how to talk to them. Inaaral ko rin ‘yun mga technical aspect. Hindi ko talaga linya ang hosting. Bagong field siya for me so gusto ko siyang tutukan kasi ayoko ring mapahiya,” she said.

Furthermore, Santos disclosed that she asked her husband Ryan Agoncillo for tips since the latter’s forte is hosting.

“Humihingi ako ng tips kay Ryan. Ang sabi lang niya, ‘Just go with the flow.’ Kasi ang mga bata naman talaga ang magdadala ng show. Kami maga-assist lang, magbibigay ng tips,” she related.

Santos said she is excited to spend time with kids who share the same passion for cooking as she does.

“I think once we start doing the show automatic ‘yun na ang magiging bonding namin. For sure wala na kaming ibang choice kung hindi magusap habang naghihintay sa taping. Sa ngayon nakikita ko nang magiging masaya itong Junior Master Chef,” she said.

Santos invited everyone to catch JMC once it goes on air on ABS-CBN.

“Sana kapag napanood niyo itong JMC ay ma-inspire ang lahat na magluto. Kasi kung kaya ng mga bata, bakit naman hindi kakayanin ng mga matatanda? Sana maturuan din nito ‘yung mga bata na gumawa ng ibang masayang bagay aside from playing computer or watching TV. Magandang lesson ang pagluluto kasi madadala nila itong hanggang pagtanda nila,” said Santos.

Judy Ann Santos pregnancy changes plans

March 14, 2010

HER pregnancy will change Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo’s plans of having a long vacation in Europe come April. “Our plan then was to take a long vacation para doon kami makabuo,” says Juday. “E, ganyang naka-bullseye na pala kami, baka hindi na lang muna namin itutuloy kasi ang tagal naming hinintay ito kaya dapat lang na ingatan.”

Even her workload is affected. “My doctor said bawasan ang stress kaya aayusin ko ang schedule ko para hindi ako masyadong mahirapan. Buti’t patapos na ang taping ng ‘Habang May Buhay’ at marami na rin kaming na-shoot sa movie namin ni Sarah Geronimo.

‘Yun na lang movie ko with Direk Marilou Abaya for Unitel ang hindi pa nasisimulan. I guess I have no choice but to take my time shooting it para di ako masyadong mapagod. I’m sure they’ll understand namang my main concern now is my baby. As of now, hindi pa kami nagwi-wish kung babae o lalaki.

Judy Ann Santos ‘niluhuran’ ng ABS-CBN para tapusin ang bagong teleserye

January 28, 2010

PAGKATAPOS nang halos tatlong taong pagkawala sa primetime shows ng ABS-CBN, muling magni-ningning ang nag-iisang bituin ng teleseryeng si Judy Ann Santos via Habang May Buhay kasama sina Derek Ramsay, Gladys Reyes, Joem Bascon, John Arcilla, Tetchie Agbayani, Gina Alajar at Rio Locsin, sa direksiyon ni Wenn Deramas.

Pero ano nga ba ang totoong dahilan kung bakit kay tagal bago muling nagkaroon ng primetime show si Juday?

“Parang, mag-ina ‘yan eh! May mga konting hindi pagkakaunawaan. May mga konting tampuhan na naaayos din naman. Open naman ako sa ABS-CBN management. Kung ano ang naging tampo ko ay sina-sabi ko naman sa kanila at nakita ko naman, in fairness, ‘yung pagiging professional nila at ‘yung pagsuyo nila at pagbibigay ng effort para suyuin ako. Hindi naman talaga maiwasang may mga ganoong tampuhan lang naman! No-ong kinausap nila ako, si-nabi ko lang naman sa kanila na sa susunod ay huwag naman akong abutin ng tatlong taong walang trabaho, mga isang taon at kalahati lang, okey lang sa akin,” bungisngis na pagkukuwento sa amin ni Juday sa presscon ng Habang May Buhay.

Judy Ann Santos, saludo sa paglipat ni Claudine Barretto

January 27, 2010

SA ginanap na bonggang presscon para sa Habang May Buhay series ni Judy Ann Santos sa Fernwood Gardens kamakalawa ng gabi, kitang-kita kung gaano kalaki ang pagpapahalaga ng ABS-CBN sa aktres.

Sa audio visual presentation, pati na rin sa introduction kay Juday, tinawag nila itong “Undisputed Teleserye Queen” at “Reyna ng Pinoy Soap Opera.”

“Sobrang nakaka-flatter. Iniisip ko nga kung totoo ba ’to,” pahayag ng aktres.

Eh, ano ba ang feeling niya sa bagong title na ibinigay?

“Sa totoo lang, hindi ako kumportable. Kasi ’pag merong ganito, mas tumitindi rin ang expectations ng tao, eh,” dagdag pa ni Juday.

Para sa kanya, hindi lang siya ang dapat tawaging “Teleserye Queen” o “Reyna ng Pinoy Soap Opera.”

Judy Ann Santos rewarded to upset Claudine Barretto?

December 7, 2009

TO jumpstart ABS CBN’s celebration of its 60th year of showing soap operas on television, Judy Ann Santos, recently crowned soap opera queen by her mother station, will be launched as lead star in the drama series “Habang May Buhay.”

The title befits Juday achievements-wise, notwithstanding the fact that Juday also starred in projects that did not perform well in the box-office.

But what would Claudine Barretto say about this recent and well-deserved attempt to apparently build up Juday’s career?

Claudine herself had starred in soap operas while she was still with ABS-CBN and also perfectly fills the bill of soap opera queen for the Kapuso network if warranted.
