Ai-Ai De Las Alas: 'Loveless is the new flawless'


051711-aiai_main.jpgLast Mother’s Day on May 15 gave Ai-Ai De Las Alas a chance to reflect on her life as a single mother to three children: Sancho, Nicki, and Andi. She described having to raise kids without the help of a father as a never-ending struggle, but has a priceless reward. “Challenging pa rin hanggang ngayon. Constant struggle talaga ang pagiging isang single parent kasi wala akong ibang katuwang para mag-alaga at mag-provide para sa amin, si God lang. Pero masaya pa rin naman. Ang tanging gift lang na kapalit e ‘yung love mula sa mga anak mo at kapag nakita mong napalaki mo sila nang maayos. Nakakatuwa ‘yun kapag nagawa mo na mag-isa.”

Until now the Concert Comedy Queen is still in search for the right man who will love her and her children and will be with her though ups and downs. She went on to clear up the rumors claiming she had been spotted in the company of different men. “Matagal na akong loveless. ‘Yung mga nababalita, mga date lang ‘yun. Showbiz date, puro showbiz.”

Though none of her dates led to a relationship, the 46-year-old comedian said she is okay with being loveless which for her has an important advantage. “Okay lang ako na loveless. Maganda nga ‘yun. Loveless is the new flawless. ‘Yun na ang motto in life ko. Kapag loveless, wala kang problema kaya tuloy nagiging flawless ka. Walang bwisit, ha ha ha!

Ai-Ai also admitted that she is now at a point in her life where she has grown tired of the dating scene, primarily because her work has always been her priority. “Dumarating ka rin sa age na parang pagod ka nang mag-entertain ng suitors. Ang gusto mo na lang mag-work, makasama ang mga anak mo. Nandun ako ngayon. Nakakapagod din mag-entertain ng manliligaw. Magkakakilala kayo, getting to know stage, hindi rin pala kayo magkakasundo. Nakaka-haggard ‘yun!

She is currently one of the judges on the top-rating second season of Pilipinas Got Talent which will soon conduct auditions for the third season. Aside from that, Ai-Ai will shoot a movie which is an entry in the Metro Manila Film Festival this December. But before that, she is bound to leave for Guangzhou, China with Kim Chiu to begin production for the teleserye Binondo Girl.

Dahil na nga rin siguro sa work kaya ang hirap magka-love life. Ang hirap talaga pagsabayin na ang dami mong trabaho, pero ‘yung mga nanliligaw sa ‘yo gusto bigyan mo sila ng panahon. Alangan namang isama ko sila sa taping. Nakakatawa naman ‘yun!,” said Ai-Ai.
