Actress-comedian Angelica Panganiban gamely answered questions on her career, family and love life on Tapatan ni Tunying last Thursday.
Known for impersonating Kris Aquino, Angelica Panganiban revealed that she idolizes the Queen of All Media for her frankness despite what other people say. She also said that she wrote her a letter before, asking permission to impersonate her.
Being a mainstay host of Banana Split for 6 years, she shared that it is their friendship and support for one another that keep them going. However, when asked how much she earns on the show, “ Mahina rin ang kalakaran,” was Angelica’s reply while laughing. Angelica said that they do not think about it anymore and opened up the time when she considered transferring networks. But then, she cannot do it for she does not want to leave her show.
Angelica also shared that when she found out about the true identity for her parents in 2010, she felt embarrassed towards her adoptive parents and remembered all those times that she did not perform well in school, among others. In her search to find her biological parents, she learned that her biological mother has passed away. She was even hospitalized when she found out as she still got hurt even though she did not know her real mother. However, Angelica found her biological father through Facebook.
In 2012, she began her relationship with actor, John Lloyd Cruz to whom she said is very husband material. She said that she appreciates how John Lloyd loves his family, especially his mother. "Ako naniniwala ako dun eh kung paano mo mamahalin yung mommy mo, talagang ang taas ng tingin ko sa mga ganong klaseng lalaki," the actress-comedian added. However, they have no plans of marrying yet for they still want to achieve many things in their personal life.
She also gamely admitted that one of the things that she and John Lloyd agree doing together is social drinking, " Hindi ko nakikitaan ng problema yung pag-inom, social drinking. Ang masama ay kung sumobra ka, may mga nangyayari na na hindi maganda, hindi ka na nakakapunta ng trabaho, hindi ka na nakakapagperform ng maayos. Hindi ko siya nakitaan ng ganon. Kahit na uminom siya, wala siyang tinatapakan na tao and ganon din ako."
