Diether Ocampo talks about his expectations with his showbiz career and his love life for the year ahead.
After starring in the movie Dalaw, Diether Ocampo returns to TV via Sabel where he plays a wealthy businessman who has taken an interest in Jessy Mendiola'rsquo;s character. It remains to be seen though whether he'rsquo;ll be a mainstay or merely a guest star of that popular remake since he'rsquo;s also preparing for her upcoming teleserye with Bea Alonzo and Robin Padilla, Guns and Roses.
"Actually ngayon pa lang pinaghahandaan ko na yun. I'rsquo;m doing some research based dun sa concept nung proyekto namin at sa magiging character ko. First time kong makakatrabaho sa isang TV series ang ating iniidolo na si Robin Padilla. Si Bea nakasama ko na sa ASAP at sa ibang events ng ABS-CBN pero 'lsquo;di sa isang teleserye na tulad nito so there'rsquo;s a lot to look forward to," said Diether in an interview with Push.com.ph.
Diether further shared that one of his resolutions this year is to focus on his showbiz career and to spend as much time as he can with his loved ones. "I don'rsquo;t want to lose my momentum lalo na dahil maganda yung mga proyekto ko last year. But at the same time, I want to spend more time with my family. Isa kasi yun sa mga nagiging reklamo ng mga kapamilya ko sa akin. Dahil siyempre 'lsquo;pag abala tayo sa trabaho, minsan nate-take for granted mo yung ibang aspeto ng buhay mo. Now I have learned to balance both so maganda ang 2011."
As a matter of fact, the dashing actor is saving up for a bigger house since his mom has decided to stay at his Quezon City home. "My mom has recently moved in with me. So promise ko sa kanya I would give her a house na may magandang kitchen. Masarap kasi magluto yung nanay ko kasi Kapampangan. I'rsquo;ve been independent for the longest for the time so blessing in disguise na magkasama ulit kami sa iisang bahay para mas marami akong oras na kasama siya."
When asked if falling in love is also part of his checklist, Diether simply replied, "I'rsquo;ll cross the bridge when I get there. Mahirap naman pangunahan yung mga hindi pa nangyayari 'lsquo;di ba? It'rsquo;s hard to expect so mas magandang kung ano na lang dumating at ipagkaloob ng Diyos, I'rsquo;ll accept it with arms wide open."
