Marian Rivera On Dingdong Dantes Staying With GMA: He Can Think For HimselfWill Dingdong stay with GMA now his girlfriend Marian Rivera has signed a new contract with the Kapuso Network?
If you ask Rivera, she will tell you that Dantes can think for himself.
In fact, that’s exactly what the actress, recently called by GMA boss Felipe Gozon as the real “queen” of the Kapuso Network, when asked about Dantes during her contract signing with GMA on Saturday.
Asked by members of the media if her contract signing with GMA is a prelude to Dantes also renewing his contract with the network, Rivera said, “Well, to be honest, partner ko si Dong. Pero, may sarili siyang pag-iisip. At bilang respeto sa manager niya, e, hindi natin alam kung ano ang desisyon niya.”
The actress gave no hints as to what Dantes will do as she said, “Hindi natin alam. Puwedeng magkahiwalay, puwedeng magkasama. So, sila ang magde-decide niyan. Basta ako, okay ako, nasa GMA ako.”
When pushed to give a hint by asking if she and Dantes have talked about it, Rivera did not balk. She said, “Well, bilang respeto nga, sinasabi ko na hindi ko talaga alam. Yun ang sinasabi ko. Hindi ko kayo binibigyan ng assurance na parehas kami na nasa GMA. Pero, hindi ko alam.”
Furthermore, when the press asked her if Dantes will consider her signing a new contract with GMA as he thinks about his own contract, Rivera said that he will not.
“Ay, hindi e, kasi depende rin sa sitwasyon namin at depende rin sa kanila at sa manager niya kung saan ang gusto nila. Hindi naman porke’t nandito si Marian Rivera, kailangan nandito rin si Dingdong Dantes. So, nasa kanila 'yan,” she said.
However, if ever Dantes will transfer to another station, Rivera said that she would be sad.
““Ay, siyempre naman, siyempre naman. Oo naman,” she said.
Nonetheless, the actress was adamant that Dantes and his manager should be the ones asked these types of questions.
“Pero still, ayoko na rin pag-usapan bilang respeto sa manager niya at kay Dong din. Dapat, sila na lang ang sumasagot sa mga ganyang bagay,” she said.
She did say though that Dantes is happy for her because he has seen how GMA loves her. Rivera also noted that it would be great if she and Dantes were to both stay with GMA.
Meanwhile, Rivera also revealed that Dantes has some plans for her during her birthday. Her contract signing happened Saturday and she will be celebrating her 29th birthday on Monday.
During her press conference, Rivera revealed that she and Dantes will be leaving the country to celebrate.
However, it appears that the actress is not aware of what Dantes has planned for her. She says that the actor just told her what to bring.
“Hindi ko alam ang mangyayari sa August 12, pero bukas, aalis kami ni Dong,” Rivera said.
“Basta tinext lang niya 'ko na 'eto ang mga dadalhin mo... Swimsuit, formal dress. Talagang in-enumerate niya sa akin,” she added.
She also said that she did not know if it will be just the two of them who will travel or if Dantes’ parents and her parents are also going with them.
The actress did note that she needs to be back in the country by August 14 because her contract has just started and she and Dantes need to work.
Rivera went on to hint that she is not just being secretive about her plans.
“Hindi ko alam. Palagi naman akong open sa inyo bilang mahal ko naman kayo at hindi naman ako naglilihim. Napaka-transparent kong tao. Kapag tinanong ninyo naman ako, sumasagot naman ako. If ever na anumang bakasyon o sorpresa ang ibigay sa akin ni Dong, sasabihin ko naman sa inyo. I-Instagram ko naman. Ako pa, addict ako sa Instagram,” she said.
The actress did end on a mysterious note, however, when asked what her wish for her birthday is.
“Palagi kong sinasabi, ang isang tao ay hindi nauubusan ng wish talaga. Pero siyempre, ang wish ko ngayong taon na ito ay hindi para sa sarili ko. Pero siguro, soon na lang ninyo malalaman kung ano ang wish ko, kung ano ang gusto kong gawin—pero hindi para sa akin,” she said.
