Vina Morales says having a love life is not a top priority


031311-vina_main.jpgVina Morales is about to show her sexy and cunning side as Cecille, the aunt of Melissa Ricks in the upcoming teleserye Nasaan Ka Elisa? During the press conference for the drama, Vina talked about how she prepared herself for some steamy scenes like her hot kiss with Eric Fructuoso and a shower scene with Allen Dizon. “Mahal ko talaga si Eric sa story so makikita niyo na may passion sa amin. May mga makikita konting skin but alam niyo naman na sa TV siyempre may mga restrictions. Para sa akin trabaho ito. ‘Yun ang iniisip ko. I know rin naman my limitations. Naguusap kami ng staff ng show, ng director. I would tell them na may mga hindi ako kayang gawin kaya kung pwede dayain na lang.

She explained that the sexy scenes were really required in story and not just created to entice viewers. Vina revealed that she had to talk to her family, most notably her showbiz “discoverer” German Moreno before she did her scenes. “Nagtanong ako, isa na kay Kuya Germs. Also sa family ko. At siyempre nandiyan naman ang Star Magic na nagde-defend sa akin kung ano ang kaya at hindi ko kayang gawin. Maraming nagwo-worry about me, so thank you, ha ha ha! But I was promised na I will be taken care of naman dito sa show. I’m happy with my character.”

The good thing though, according to Vina, is that she currently doesn’t have a boyfriend who might feel jealous about her sexy role in Nasaan Ka Elisa? The actress/singer is a single mother to her baby daughter Ceanna, and she said that having a partner is not among her immediate priorities as of the moment. “Last sa mga priorities ko ‘yan. Of course ang number one is my daughter. Ganun talaga kapag may anak ka na. Lahat ng mommy ang sagot, ‘Okay lang na walang kasal, basta may anak ako.’ Ha ha ha! Masaya na ako dun. Second siguro is ‘yung sarili ko. I have to think kung ano ba ang plano ko sa buhay. Ngayong madaming magagandang offers sa akin, I will grab it.”

Vina and the father of her child have now decided to just be on good terms for the sake of their daughter. She said that the possibility of finding a new love is just anyone’s guess. “I know it God’s time it will come. Ayokong madaliin. Hindi ko alam kung sino ba ang makakatuluyan ko. Wala namang makakapagsabi. ‘Yung tatay naman ng anak ko, we’re on good terms. Who knows baka may ma-meet akong iba. Very supportive siya in everything. Mabait siyang tao.”

Reporters joked about the possibility that Vina’s younger sister, Shaina Magdayao, might get married before her. But according to Vina, Shaina and boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz have no plans of tying the knot in the soon. “Bata pa siya. ‘Wag muna. Okay naman sila. Of course lahat ng relationships may ups and downs, may hindi pinagkakasunduan. Pero sila mas marami ‘yung pinagkakasunduan nila. Maraming happy moments. Hindi lang kasi sila masyado nagsasalita na happy nga sila so hindi alam ng mga tao.”
