Barbie explains vlogs with Jak are old footage

March 25, 2020

BARBIE Forteza admits the current virus crisis has taken its toll on her and BF Jak Roberto’s love life. “Siyempre, dahil pareho kaming hindi makalabas ng bahay, hanggang sa phone lang kami at video call,” she says. “Thanks to modern technology, hindi kami nawawalan ng connection and I can even watch while he’s doing his workouts sa gym niya sa bahay nila. Supposed to be, sa Korea sana kami magho-Holy Week, pero dahil sa nangyaring quarantine na ito, pinaka-cancel na namin ang aming vacation doon. Sayang nga, kasi may visa na kami ang tagal bago na-issue, tapos, bayad na ang lahat, e hindi pala puwedeng basta humingi ng refund.”

And she, what does she do to while her time away during this lockdown blues? “I read. Yung books na matagal ko nang nabili, finally, nababasa ko na. And I watch a lot of shows sa Netflix. I prefer action na maraming fight scenes at patayan. Ha ha ha! Violent!”

Taping new episodes for their primetime soap, “Anak ni Waray vs. Anak ni Biday” is currently on hold. Just before it ran out of new episodes, viewers have noted that she has great chemistry with Migo Adecer and their new love team seems to have gained their own fans.

“Yes po, kami man, nagulat din na maganda ang feedback sa amin ni Migo ng viewers,” she says. “Very favorable ang comments ng netizens online. Nakaka-miss nga ang mga kasama ko sa show, lalo na si Tita Snooky Serna as my mom, then si Kate Valdez who’s my sister na kontrabida sa buhay ko at nami-miss ko mga kuwentuhan namin sa set. I also miss si Cai Cortez as my friend at pati ang direktor naming si Mark Sicat de la Cruz. Lahat kami ngayon, nakatengga sa bahay, but we text each other every now and then to keep in touch.”

She and Jak have their own youtube vlog and some folks are bashing them because they posted footage of them going out. “Well, akala nila kasi, bago yung mga footage na yun. But matagal na yung vlog namin at matagal na rin namin nakunan yung ibang activities namin pero ngayon lang na-post online kasi ngayon din lang nagkaroon si Jak ng free time para i-edit sila. So, huwag nyo po akalaing bago yun. Sumusunod po kami sa utos. Hindi kami lumalabas at we comply po. Pero patuloy po kayong manood ng vlog namin sa youtube, ha.”
