After the ending of his successful sexy afternoon soap Pasion de Amor, Ejay Falcon is set to come back to primetime soon with new Kapamilya Ritz Azul and Paulo Avelino for The Promise of Forever.
Despite all that has happened between them, Ejay, during their show’s press announcement admitted that he still wants to work with Ellen Adarna.
It may be recalled that Ejay wooed his Pasion de Amor co-star Ellen only to be turned down by her.
In fact, Ejay admitted that he got “burned” by what happened between him and Ellen.
“Lahat naman tayo dumaan sa ganon,” he said. “Pero hindi naman iiwasan [ma-in love kaya lang] kasi ang priority namin siya [Ritz] kasi bagong-bago pa lang siya.”
But do he and Ellen still communicate with each other?
“Ganon parin, minessage niya ako sa Facebook, tinatanong kung ano number ko kasi nawala ang phone niya may raket daw kami sa Davao. ‘Yon ganon kami,” he said.
“Parehas naman kami na gusto namin makatrabaho ang isa’t-isa pero wala eh. Naka’y Ritz muna ako,” he added.
Since he would be working with Ritz for the first time, Ejay had a few words for her.
“Ang masasabi ko lang, sobrang swerte mo kasi dito ka lumipat kasi maraming artista na lumipat dito na masasabi ko talaga na nag-improve sa lahat ng bagay lalaong lalo na sa acting. And ang mga leading men dito, gwapo at gentleman,” he said.
Aside from Paulo and Ritz, the upcoming soap would also star Angel Aquino, Amy Austria, Benjie Paras, and Cherry Pie Picache.
The soap, according to the press conference, would take its viewers to various Mediterranean countries, as parts of it would be shot aboard a cruise ship.
