Ai Ai heaves a sigh of relief from Ex-B ‘nightmare’

Ai-Ai de las Alas

AI AI De Las Alas just laughs off reports that her former wards, Ex Battalion, are happy and thankful that she’s no longer their manager. “Okay lang,” she shrugs it off. “Kung natuwa sila, mas natutuwa akong wala na akong kaugnayan sa kanila.”

Honestly, we think it’s just a case of sweet lemon for Ex Battalion as part of their defense mechanism after Ai Ai dumped them. As of now, those who got them to perform before are no longer getting them. Some are even avoiding them. And the reaction of people in social media is generally more favorable with Ai Ai, saying that they quickly got swell-headed, “nalunod sa isang basong tubig.”

“Hindi naman ako nage-expect ng anumang maganda sa kanila,” adds Ai Ai. “Kung ano 'yung ugali nila noon, 'yun pa rin 'yun. Hindi naman 'yun mababago overnight. Pinagpapasa-Diyos ko na lang sila. Hayaan mo sila.”

So would she still manage talents? “Andaming nagpiprisintang magpa-manage sa’kin after masulat na binitiwan ko na sila. Nakikiusap na sila na ang i-manage ko at magiging mabait daw sila’t masunurin sa akin. Pero ayoko na muna. 'Yun na lang munang anak kong si Sophia ang ima-manage ko. 'Yung isa ko pang anak, si Sancho, si Tita June Rufino ang nagma-manage dun.”

Ai Ai is optimistic that her new movie, “Feelennials (Feeling Millennnials)” will be a real crowdpleaser. “May bago akong ka-love team, si Bayani Agbayani,” she beams. “Ngayon lang kami nagkapareha at may kilig factor pala kami, may chemistry. 'Yung magandang samahan namin ever since off cam, nadala namin hanggang on cam. Ako rito si Madame Bato-Bato, a rich single mom na gustong mapasok ang mundo ng aking solong anak, si Nico, played by Arvic Tan who was last seen sa ‘Toda One I Love’. So gusto ko siyang sabayan sa kanyang activities as a millennial like online dating, at dito ko nakilala si Bayani as Chito, isang rich bachelor na nanalo ng jackpot sa lotto. This is directed by Rechie del Carmen, with special participation nina Pops Fernandez, Martin Nievera and Paolo Ballesteros, opening on June 19.”
