More than being a host and an actress, Ruffa Gutierrez said her first priority is being a devoted mom to her two daughters Lorin and Venice. The reality TV star also said she is excited to do more work in showbiz this year. “I’m the type kasi who’s also a go-getter. Hindi naman ako puwede maghintay lang ng grasya. I’m a single, working mom and international schools are very expensive so I have to be a go-getter and be able to support myself. Importante sa show business ang longevity. Since I’ve been in the business since I was 13, what more can I offer people?” she explained.
Ruffa admitted that although she misses acting, what she really wants to get back into is hosting a talk show. “That’s what we’re working on right now. Pero alam niyo naman hindi na uso ang talk show ngayon. I miss those times when I would banter, I would love talking about my insights and hopefully there will come a time na magiging uso ulit ang talk shows. So for now puwede tayo mag-acting din and also reality show. Malakas din talaga ang reality shows ngayon,” she said.
Even when it comes to roles, Ruffa said she doesn’t mind playing the villian as long as it is an interesting character. “As long as the role is very good. I’ve been a glamorous kontrabida in the past. Huwag lang yung mamamatay-tao, yung may relevance naman in the end ‘di ba? So kung magaganda naman yung offers why not? It doesn’t matter kung mabait ako, kontrabida ako, mistress ako. It doesn’t matter really. It’s just a role,” she said.
