Judy Ann Santos says it might take time before she returns to teleseryes


070811-juday_main.jpgJudy Ann Santos is about to return to television, not as an actress, but for the very first time as a host, for the new ABS-CBN reality show Junior MasterChef: Pinoy Edition. After more than a year of taking a break from showbiz to focus on mommy duties, Judy Ann said that he decision to go back to work was very much supported by her husband Ryan Agoncillo. “Ever since si Ryan lagi niyang sinasabi na kung ano man ang maging desisyon ko about sa pagbabalik-trabaho, okay lang sa kanya. Ako rin naman, gusto ko rin mag-work na for as long as may oras pa rin para sa mga bata.

The Young Superstar admitted that she missed working in front of the camera. But now her main priority is to be a hands-on mother to her two kids, Yohan and Lucho. “Kailangan kasi talaga nila ng guidance especially now na si Yohan ay nag-school na and si Lucho naman ay nagkakaisip na. Ang hirap kapag lagi kang wala sa bahay at hindi mo nakikita ‘yung mga anak mo. Nakaka guilty. E dito sa JMC ang mga kasama ko pa puro mga bata. Kaya nga kapag dire-direcho ang taping namin masyado akong malambot kasi miss na miss ko na ‘yung mga anak ko. Nagtataka sila sa akin kasi para na akong loka-loka, ha ha ha!

She also shared that her daughter Yohan is very excited about JMC and is insisting on visiting the big kitchen set. As much as Judy Ann wanted to grant her little girl’s request, the location is very far from their home. “Gusto niyang pumunta dito. Hindi ko pa siya nadadala dito sa set kasi nung nag-start kaming mag-taping pasimula na ‘yung school. Kailangan na namin siyang i-practice na matulog nang maaga at gumising nang maaga. Tsaka medyo malayo itong set sa bahay. Kung malapit lang sana madaling ihatid-sundo. Kaso Marikina ito tapos Alabang kami. Ang hirap sa gas. Uuwian ko na lang siya siguro ng mga pictures, ha ha ha!

Judy Ann said that she still has an existing contract with ABS-CBN. Since she is the “Queen of Teleserye,” many are wondering when she will do another drama series. The actress, however, couldn’t give a definite time. “Siguro mid next year na siguro. Hindi pa ako makapangako sa inyo kasi naghihintay pa ako ng magandang material. And also sa ngayon feeling ko solved na ako dito sa JMC. Gusto ko ito kasi hindi masyadong stressful ang workload.”

The actress explained how happy she is that with the schedule of taping for JMC she still has the time to be at home with her family. “May mga times na maaga akong nakakauwi since maaga ang start ng roll. Thankful ako na may time pa rin ako with Yohan and Lucho. Sa umaga kasi gumigising ako ng five o’clock para sabayan si Yohan sa breakfast and ipahatid siya sa school. Routine ko na ‘yun. Kaya nga kapag mga alas otso o alas nwebe na ng gabi, ‘yung mukha ko halos bagsak na sa sahig sa sobrang pagod. Sobra pa akong satisfied sa kung anong meron ako ngayon.”
