Richard Gutierrez Says His Lovelife Is StableEven though he maintains a long-distance relationship with girlfriend Sarah Lahbati, GMA's prime actor Richard Gutierrez said he's happy in the love department.
He just came from a 10-day vacation in Switzerland where Lahbati is staying after clashing heads with GMA executives. She left just before finishing her show in the network.
Gutierrez went there before taping for "Love & Lies" started. He is still not sure if he will be coming back there after the show.
The actor said Lahbati is doing good there, and that she misses showbiz in the country. But when it comes to handling their long-distance relationship, Gutierrez said he's okay since he is also busy here.
"Okay naman, okay naman... steady. Okay lang, masaya naman. Stable naman ako sa department na yun sa buhay ko."
Even though the actor is already 29 years old, he still has no plans to get married. But he said he can see Lahbati in his future already.
“Ako naman kasi, I won’t be in a relationship if I can’t see myself with that person for the rest of my life."
“Why would you waste time in a relationship, di ba?”
Gutierrez wants his girlfriend to go back to the Philippines already, but they are still waiting for the "right time."
"Gusto ko na siyang bumalik dito. Gusto ko na nga siyang bumalik e, pero timing lang, yung the right time lang."
Reports said that the actor himself is trying to talk with GMA executives regarding Lahbati's return to the network. However, Gutierrez said he still doesn't have the time to hold meetings with his bosses.
There are also rumors that the actor will be leaving the Kapuso network after his contract expires this year. Gutierrez said his mother and manager, Anabelle Rama, hasn't said anything to him about offers from other networks.
