After the surprise 18th birthday party that her mother Jenine Desiderio organized for her, Kapamilya actress Janella Salvador told members of the press that she was left speechless. “Wala talaga akong masabi kanina ‘pag pasok ko kasi when I heard palang the music… Lahat talaga ng music na gusto ko nasunod,” she said.
Janella also shared she was really planning to celebrate her debut but cancelled it. “I actually was planning for a debut talaga. I was already in the middle of planning, na plan ko na lahat, ‘yung look, ‘yung theme, ‘yung music and then I suddenly decided to cancel it because I didn’t want the hassle pero I’m so, so thankful everyone thought of pushing through with it. I really did not expect anything.
“Actually, they followed the theme I wanted. Sabi nila it’s impossible to make this venue black and it’s black, it happened,” she said about the venue of her party which was at Palazzo Verde in Alabang.
When asked about his estranged father musician Juan Miguel Salvador who was not present during the event, Janella said, “Actually, when I thought about my party, naisip ko na naman na baka hindi siya pumunta. I was open naman to that.
“I think he’s going to greet me… (Otherwise) I’m okay naman, I prepped myself for this and he’s going to reach out when he feels like, di ba?” she added.
Was there anyone else whom she would have wanted to come but was not able to?
“Actually, si Jerome Ponce, kasama ko sa Be Careful (With My Heart). I don’t know why, tatanungin ko pa lang pero I understand naman kasi feeling ko biglaan din ‘to,” she answered.
She also has “no words” for her mother who spearheaded everything. “Sasabihin ko lahat sa kanya in person. I’m just so thankful for my mom.”
