113012-jodi_main.jpgActress Jodi Sta. Maria was surprised to learn that the number one daytime soap Be Careful With My Heart has been extended for another seven months. This was announced by the show’s production manager Ginny Ocampo during their thanksgiving mass held on November 29. “Siyempre nagsimula naman kami originally na dapat nasa 13 weeks lang ang Be Careful With My Heart. Hanggang nasa 20 weeks na tayo ngayon. Kanina lang in-announce sa amin na hahaba pa ang show till mid of next year,” she said in an interview with Push.com.ph.

During the mass, Ocampo shared that the creative staff were a bit emotional when they were conceptualizing an ending for the show. So it was really a blessing when the ABS-CBN management decided to extend it instead. “We’ll be together for seven months. Na-finalize lang ‘yan yesterday (November 28). Hopefully all of us will take advantage of this opportunity para mag-ipon at matutong mag-invest dahil hindi madali ang buhay. At sana mas mahalin natin ang show. Yung success ay nasa kamay ng lahat sa atin on and off cam.”

Jodi also expressed her gratitude for being a source of inspiration to the avid viewers of Be Careful With My Heart. “We’ve been getting really good ratings from day one. So nag-hold kami ng isang thanksgiving mass para naman magpasalamat sa Itaas. Aside from the relationship na nabuo habang gingawa namin yung show, thankful din kami dahil kami mismo naging blessing din sa ibang tao. Yun ang pinakamalaking blessing talaga.

With this latest development, it seems that the plans for Jodi and Richard Yap to have a movie together might be postponed for now. “Actually, dun sa movie hindi pa kami masyado makapag-reveal ng info about it kasi nasa planning stage pa lang siya. Basta kung meron na kaming word sa management, ipapaalam namin kaagad sa inyo. Kung sakaling matuloy yung pelikula, ang fun part dun kami-kami rin yung magkakasama.”

When asked if extending the show might affect whatever plans she made for next year, Jodi replied, “Uunahan na namin sila sa pag-plan. Hindi joke lang. Siyempre iba din kasi yung dedication namin sa trabaho namin. Nung tinanggap naman namin ito, alam namin na magiging busy din kami.”

At the very least, Jodi will get some time off when she goes to Bangkok with son Thirdy and some showbiz friends. She added that it’s her treat to her son for being an honor student. She mentioned this during her tweet last November 20: “Finalizing our Bangkok trip :-) I’m sure gwapong bata will enjoy the itinerary mommy prepared :-) Good morning tweeps”
