Oyo Sotto Revealed Why Wife Kristine Hermosa Turned Down Remake Of Pangako Sa ‘YoOyo Sotto admitted that he stopped wife Kristine Hermosa from accepting ABS-CBN’s remake of hit Pangako Sa ‘Yo. He said that he advised against the project because his wife was being offered the role of a mother.
He apparently told Hermosa that she must leave the teleserye as it is since it was well loved by the audience, including the Malaysians. Pangako Sa ‘Yo catapulted Hermosa and Jericho Rosales to stardom. It was shown in Malaysia in 2010.
To date, Sotto said that Malaysians still talk about the teleserye on Twitter and Instagram.
Sotto was recently interviewed by PEP.PH during a press conference for his GMA-7 sitcom Vampire Ang Daddy Ko. He will star alongside his father, Vic Sotto.
He added that Hermosa is also being offered to star in a TV project in Malaysia with Rosales. But Sotto said that the network should also offer him and their kids accommodations in Malaysia because Hermosa would have to stay there for three months.
Sotto and Hermosa have two kids: their five-year-old adopted son Kiel and one-year-old Ondrea.
The TV network, however, couldn’t afford to fund Sotto and his kids, so they rejected the offer.
He was then asked if his wife misses showbiz. He said that Hermosa misses being in front of the camera too. Sotto related that Hermosa received a lot of tweets, asking her to come back to showbiz.
Sotto added that there are also some tweets for him, asking him to allow his wife to be an actress again. He said that most of the tweets are from Malaysians.
But as a mother, Sotto said that Hermosa is very hands-on.
“Wala akong masabi. Pag dating sa pagiging nanay, very hands on sa pagpapaligo sa bata. May time na medyo nawalan kami ng helper sa bahay so kami lahat gumagawa. Bilib na bilib ako sa kanya. Si Tin parang boy scout, laging handa,” he told PEP.PH.
Being a father now, Sotto said that he wants to raise his children to be God-fearing.
He also revealed that they already told Kiel that he is adopted. He said that their child psychologist told them to tell Kiel the truth.
When it comes to his dad’s new girlfriend, Pauleen Luna, Sotto denied rumors that he is angry. He said that he just finds the situation awkward.
“Ang dami kasing nag-iisip na galit ako. Sabi ko lang na medyo naiilang ako pero hanggang doon na lang yun. Wala naman siyang [referring to Pauleen] ginagawa sa akin, di ba?” he said.
Sotto added that he wants his father to be happy, and he wants someone who will take care of him in the future.
