Melai Cantiveros and Pokwang reveal their ‘greatest challenges’ in love
022716-TWBAMelaiPokwanng.jpgOn Tonight with Boy Abunda, Melai Cantiveros and Pokwang revealed what kind of comedy they will be doing in this “super feel good lang na teleserye” entitled We Will Survive, where they will play the lead roles. “Yung pagpapatawa po namin dito hindi sinasadya.” 

We Will Survive is a story of friendship, family, and love. The two share that just like their characters they have also been through a lot in life and love. Asked by host Boy Abunda “Ano ang pinaka-grabeng challenge ninyo pagdating sa pag-ibig?” Melai answered, “Nung nagbreak kami ni Jason (Francisco) Tito Boy, talagang grabe ang pinagdaanan ko pero nagbalikan kami (kaya) talagang I survived.” She added, “…pagkatapos ng understanding and compromise dun na lumabas si Amelia Lucille.” 

Pokwang, on the other hand, said, “Yung love life ko open book yan sa mga tao, dalawang beses ako nagmahal dalawang beses palpak. Umaabot sa mga pamimisikal pero nakasurvive ako kasi pag may mga pamimisikal na, iwanan na.” 

Melai’s best friend is Kapamilya star Angelica Panganiban. Melai shared how Angelica is always willing to listen to her woes. “Lagi silang nakikinig sa problema mo, ‘pag nagsabi ako, ‘Twinny ganito ang nangyari sa akin..’ siya, ‘o sige lang, dito lang ako, nakikinig ako sa’yo..’ Listening, kasi dun mo nae-express ang feelings mo e kaya ikaw naman, ‘thank you Twinny.’” 

Pokwang’s best friend is comedienne Carmela “K” Brosas. She also shared how K is as a friend whenever she needs to talk out a problem. “Si Carmela naman Tito Boy, kahit anong ginawa niyan isang text ko lang, ‘sige punta ako diyan, nasa taping lang ako ng Kris TV, pupunta ako diyan’ or bago siya mag-set sa comedy bar, dadaan talaga sa bahay ko yan tapos umiiyak ako sa kanya.
