Assunta De Rossi reveals her husband Jules Ledesma is running again for Congress in Negros Occidental.
Assunta De Rossi revealed that she is very sad that she will have to say goodbye to her Lovers in Paris co-actors and the production people who all have become close to her. She is not worried though that there is still no word if she will have another show on the Kapamilya network. “I’m just waiting for the next offer and kung magustuhan ko walang masyadong problema. Kung wala e ‘di okay lang. Kung dito man sa ABS-CBN o sa kabila okay lang sa akin. Hindi ako exclusive sa kahit anong network which I think is mas maganda. At least open ako sa kung anong offer. Si Tita Annabelle Rama naman ang manager ko and she’s taking good care of me naman.”
Assunta will also helping husband Jules Ledesma with his election campaign. The actress revealed that her husband of seven years filed his Certificate of Candidacy once again for Representative of the first District of Negros Occidental. “Yes. Tatakbo uli siya as congressman. Nag-file na siya noong November 28. Of course I’ll be there for the campaign. Bilang asawa dapat ‘yun ang role ko.”
Assunta added that she is still not sure how busy she will be doing the campaign or if she’ll have time for showbiz. “Tingnan natin kung magiging busy ako sa kampanya next year. Maaga pa para pagusapan ang pulitika, ha ha ha!,” she laughed.
While Assunta clearly supports Jules’s political ambitions, she shared that her husband is also okay with her doing showbiz work again. However, the 26-year-old actress, who was once made a name in the sexy film genre with movies like Red Diaries, Hubog, and Bahid, quickly said that she won’t be taking her clothes off again onscreen. “Kung ano man ‘yung mga ginawa kong pagpapa-sexy sa pelikula noon I think hindi na siya uso ngayon. At kahit na gawin ko pa rin siya ngayon I think it wouldn’t look nice na because everybody knows I’m married. Dapat ‘yan sa mga baguhang single na lang. Kahit ipagtulakan pa ako ng asawa kong magpa-sexy, the truth is liberated naman mag-isip ‘yun, pero it wouldn’t look nice na kasi. Maa-appreciate pa kaya ako ng mga tao na ganun?”
But the Fil-Italian beauty is still ready to do kissing scenes and love scenes should they be required in the story. Assunta explained that she still wants to broaden her horizons as an actress. “Okay lang naman ako sa kissing scene at love scene for as long as it will be tastefully done at kailangan talaga sa story. Kung artist ka kasi dapat naiintindihan mo ‘yung requirement ng trabaho at ready kang i-broaden ‘yung horizons mo.”
