First love, never dies. Do you believe in this saying?
People weren’t expecting when love will come to them, even at a young age. But it really up to us, if how we will handle such a complicated thing.
For celebrities, they usually work with different people. They were able to see and talk face to face the other artists whom they have a crush on.
Recently, actress/singer Vina Morales talks about her new movie Damaso where she had her first time playing the role of Sisa.
Sisa is a character in the novel ‘Noli Me Tangere’ by our national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal.
Vina was asked if when she thinks became like Sisa or crazy because of love.
The actress recalls her first love, actor Robin Padilla.
“Very clear to me, medyo matagal na—yung first boyfriend ko na si Robin [Padilla].
“Yun ang naalala ko na sobra kong ewan.
“Yung daddy ko, e, wala nang magawa sa akin. Si Mama Mina [the late Mina Aragon], e, walang nagawa noong 18th birthday ko.
“Dapat may iba akong escort, e, that time, hindi ako tinantanan ni Robin kaya siya ang naging escort ko sa 18th birthday ko sa party ko.
“Naging Sisa naman si Mama Mina sa akin!”
Robin and Vina reportedly got drawn to each other on the set of 1992’s Miss na Miss Kita: Ang Utol Kong Hoodlum 2. Vina’s family probably got scared over the hookup, as Robin had acquired a reputation as a reckless womanizer by then.
Shaina’s sister also added,
“Of course, I had other relationships din naman na naging ganun din ang sitwasyon, but not as clear na naaalala ko na parang feeling ko, gumuho ang mundo ko.
“Kasi, ganun naman yata kapag first boyfriend mo, di ba?
“Saka magulo yun, Robin Padilla. Yun ang mga naging Sisa ko sa pag-ibig.”
Meanwhile, Vina reveals that on all her past relationships and heart break, there is nothing to compare with her relationship with Robin Padilla.
“Parang siguro, oo, kasi yun ang mga naalala ko. I had problems with my family. Kasi, wala na silang magawa, naloka-loka na ako.
“Si Mama Mina, si Tito Vic [del Rosario].”
When asked what she thinks the most unforgettable thing she did because of her love for Robin? She answered,
“Oh my God! Kasi, noong generation ni Robin noon, parang lahat, nagiging Sisa.
“Yun ang peak ni Robin, di ba?
“Parang lahat yata, na-in love sa kanya. Yung mga leading ladies niya, isa na ako roon!”
And because she’s just 18 that time, the actress learned to be strong.
“I’ve learned to be strong and mabait naman talaga si Robin.
“Kung paano siya makisama sa mga katrabaho niya. Sa cast, staff, crew, kung paano siya makisama, yun ang nakita ko.
“And napaka-down-to-earth niya, he’s really humble. At yung pagmamahal niya sa trabaho niya, yun naman ang mga good lesson na nakuha ko.”
Later on, Vina admitted that she never regret the time she fell in love with the action star.
“Natatawa na nga lang ako kapag naaalala ko.
“Nagkatrabaho na rin kami sa Bonifacio and kapag magkasama kami, oh my God!
“Napag-uusapan namin ang before, nakakatuwa na pag-usapan ulit.
“Pero siyempre, ayoko na, ‘no?! Yung heartaches, akala mo, mamamatay ka na. Hay, naku.”
What can you say? Have you ever fell madly deeply in love with somebody?
