THE “P” TALKS!
BY: Pilar Mateo
HER SCHEDULES until the end of the year are fully booked. Not with too many shows yet, but travels her partner Conrad Onglao has pencil pushed in his organizer.
The very reason why, in her newest teleserye with ABS-CBN, her big role in “Love Thy Woman” had to be changed. She will now portay Xian Lim‘s mother who will guide him as far as morality is concerned in the flow of the story.
“Nung sinabi na nila kasi sa Lola Nene (Atilano) mo, nakagawa na rin kami ng schedules. Hindi kakayanin ang taping days they are giving us. Am doing a “Diva2Diva” tour with Kuh Ledesma, Nanette Inventor and Mitch Valdez in June. Naging hectic na rin.
“This May 16, 2019, I will have my “Totally ZsaZsa!” Concert at the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World Manila again. This time, imagine, naisip ko na si Ian Veneracion ang kunin na guest. Do you remember the movie na nagkasama kami with Dolphy sa Seiko Films. Child star pa lang siya nu’n. Am in my twenties pa lang naman.
“The concert will have a nostalgia theme. I want to have the audience na kaedad natin get the feels of the present time themes and vice-versa. Kaya kasama rin si Karylle. And Hashtag Zeus Collins na pagsasayawin namin ng isang makalumang beat. Every time a concert comes, ‘yan agad ang iniidip ko. How will it be different from the last. Direk Floy Quintos have all these ideas he’s working on with our musical director Homer Flores.”
Zsa Zsa, the Divine Diva continues to be on top of her game.
“Physically, it’s a good thing na magkasundo kami ni Conrad sa pag-work out. I enrolled him in a fitness center kasi nagkaroon ng muscle atrophy ‘yung arms niya. So, wearing out. Ako eh, homebody. I want my trainer to come to the house na lang. Eh, minsan nahahawa na rin si Conrad. Sabi ko lumabas pa rin siya kasi ako that has been my life. Eh, baka naman magalit sa akin ang friends niya. I do boxing, badminton, zumba. What I wanna do also is ballroom dancing. Iba rin kasi ang sayaw.”
Before her concert this May, she and Conrad will rest at El Nido in Palawan.
“Then this concert before I leave in June for the US concert tour. In September, three countries in Europe. I haven’t been to Portugal (Porto), Spain and Barcelona. May shows din with ASAP. Christmastime baka Asia lang. Nagugulat nga ako kay Conrad. Kasi, naka-plantsa na all our itineraries. Hotels and pupuntahan. Now nayayaya ko na siya to walk!
The much awaited wedding?
“It will happen this year. But we want it super simple lang. Kung here ba or in another country, hindi pa confirmed. Basta very solemn lang na parang blessing and union. Para walang magtampo. A simple family affair.”
Totally Divine! The Diva that never ceases to amaze us!
Another special treat from the Diva!
