RHIAN Ramos is back on TV after more than a year. Her last series was the romcom “The One That Got Away” in 2018 yet. Her last film, “Kung Paano Siya Nawala”, was also shown that year. She took a vacation for a while, but now, she’s back in the show that will replace “One of the Baes”, which is ending this Friday. This is the drama series, “Love of My Life”, directed by Don Michael Perez.
“I play the role of Kelly Generoso,” she says. “I’m a single mom who’s into direct selling. The dad of my son is Tom Rodriguez as Stefano Gonzales, who married Carla Abellana as Adelle Nisperos, also a single mom but her son has a different dad. When Tom is diagnosed to have pancreatic cancer, pinatawag niya ako and our son to introduce us to his mom, Coney Reyes as Isabella Gonzales.”
This results in a big conflict because Coney asks her and her son to stay in the same house with Carla and her son. So the two women in Tom’s life end up in an unusual set up of sharing the same roof, vying for his attention, and getting on each other’s nerves in the process. She and Carla end up having a catfight.
“Totohanan 'yung mga sampalan and sabunutan scenes namin in the show,” says Rhian. “Direk Don Michael told us na totohanin na namin, para convincing daw at hindi na kailangang ipaulit ang eksena with a take two. Mahirap, masakit, but naitawid naman namin nang maayos.”
It’s good this is not the first time she gets to work with real-life sweethearts Carla and Tom “This is my second soap with Carla and Tom after ‘My Destiny’ which we did five years ago. The narrative of ‘Love of My Life’ is more intriguing and gets even more complicated as the days pass by, so I’m sure primetime viewers will get hooked in following the story of these two young mothers vying for the attention of the same man who happens to be dying.”
Also in the cast of “Love of My Life” are Mikael Daez as Nikolai, Tom’s brother who is the black sheep in their family as Coney blames him for the accidental death of their dad; Vaness del Moral and Maey Bautista as Carla’s trusted best friends who help her run her handicraft business; Samantha Lopez as Coney’s loyal personal assistant; Geleen Eugenio as Coney’s most trusted mayordoma; Anna Marin as Carla’s supportive mom; Carl Guevarra as the best friend and business partner of Tom; Dino Pastrano as Carla’s caring Kuya; Levi Ignacio as Coney’s longtime driver; and child actors Raphael Landicho as Carla’s son and Ethan Hariot as Rhian’s son.
With regard to her lovelife, Rhian has broken up with her Fil-Chinese BF of three years, Jason Choachuy, in 2018. Late last year, she was seen dating a new guy, a foreigner this time, named Amit Borsok. They met through common friends while Rhian was on vacation in Los Angeles. Amit is from Tel Aviv, Israel but works in the U.S. He has visited Rhian here in Manila and their LDR (long distance relationship) seems to be working for them, just like in the case of Rhian’s friend, Lovi Poe, and her foreigner boyfriend who’s also based in L.A.
