Tom Rodriguez Is Trying To Court Carla AbellanaFor the first time, Tom Rodriguez revealed that there may be more to his and Carla Abellana’s friendship than meets the eye. When asked if he will court the actress, Tom smiled and simply answered: “Sana.”
He said he’s trying to see if he’s going to pursue the actress although it might be hard for the both of them. All he can say is he’s happy to work with her and he enjoys her company a lot. Tom also said he looks forward to working every day because of Carla.
As for Carla, the actor said he cannot speak for her, but they are really good friends. Carla broke up with Geoff Eigenmann while Tom came out from a relationship with Kaye Rivera.
Carla and Tom are working for the second time on GMA-7’s series, “My Destiny.” They worked before in “My Husband’s Lover” and again, for another movie under GMA Network. “I’m happy seeing her and being in her company, when we’re at work, and I just really look forward to being around her.
Asked if they are already dating, Tom said they don’t have the time now. They only see each other when they are taping for “My Destiny.” That’s their bonding moment, he added.
Meanwhile, Tom is also asked regarding the complaints filed by Kapuso actor Aljur Abrenica against the network. Aljur is asking the management to release him from his contract, which will end in 2017. He felt that his career was mismanaged by GMA-7.
Tom and Aljur worked together in “Temptation Island” in 2011. That was before Tom moved from ABS-CBN to GMA-7.
He said he wants to give his respects and prayers to both parties in hopes that they may be able to resolve their issues peacefully. He is sure Aljur has his own reasons why he acted that way against the management.
He just wished a peaceful resolution for both parties. He cannot comment about it because he doesn’t know anything about the case, although Tom is both close to Aljur and the network. He also wished them both the best.
Since Tom managed to transfer to the Kapuso network without burning bridges with ABS-CBN, he was asked for advice regarding artists who want to do the same. He said that as for him, they waited for the contract to end before telling the network of their plans.
He is lucky to have his manager, Popoy Caritativo, who made things easier for Tom’s transfer to the Kapuso network. He admits that it’s hard to make that decision, especially since he doesn’t want to disappoint or upset anyone.
Tom can only speak for himself when he said that he’s lucky to have his family and his manager backing him up. He added that every situation is different so although it was easy for him to transfer, it doesn’t mean it would be easy for other artists too.
Tom is part of Yes! Magazine’s “100 Most Beautiful Stars.” It was the first time he felt that he was really handsome because of the response of the people. Tom said beauty comes from within and from the people who view you.
