After five years of being in a love team with Maymay Entrata, Edward Barber said that they have only gotten closer over time.
“Si Maymay ay isa sa pinaka closest friends ko and I made that very clear as well. But I feel personally that people don’t seem to understand the depth of that. Kasi when I call someone like Robi (Domingo) or Darren (Espanto) or Kyle (Echarri) my brother, it’s deeper than that. And with Maymay and I, it’s deeper than that. There’s so many things na hindi kailangan i-share sa public but they can see how strong we are in our relationship together. So kahit anong mangyari hindi mawawala yun,” he explained during the Kapamilya Strong event.
Being in showbiz after joining Pinoy Big Brother (PBB), Edward said that his biggest investment in showbiz is the time and effort he put in working on his craft and understanding how the industry works.
“Time talaga. Kasi may mga times sa mga projects, for example yung last project namin na Princess DayaReese, I think it was over a year in the works kasi may pitching, may delay, tapos may konting paasa factor (laughs). But eventually we got it done but of course it took a lot of time and it took a lot of effort. Siguro yung pinakamalaking investment ko aside from time is emotions. I’m an emotional guy. I’m sensitive. I get overwhelmed quickly. Putting my heart, realizing, this is just a job. I don’t think I’ve ever treated this like a job. I don’t think that’s always good ha (laughs). I treated it like a relationship and sometimes there’s ups and downs. But at the end of the day I’m still a Kapamilya, nandito pa rin ako. And I’m hoping, nagpaparinig ako ng konti ha, hindi ako mawawala any time soon,” he explained.
After renewing his contract with his home network during the Kapamilya Strong event, Edward also took the time to give thanks to everyone who has helped guide him through his career.
“Sa lahat ng family, sa mga bosses ng ABS-CBN, sa Mayward family, solid Edward, and sold Maymay, maraming salamat po. Dahil sa inyo, for another couple of years I’m here solid sa Kapamilya and it’s really because of your help, your strength that you’ve given me. Because of that I’ve had many blessings in my life. So Kuwentong Barber every Wednesday 6 pm we’ll be having that live on Kumu sa MYX.ph, ASAP Natin ‘To and iWant ASAP siyempre every Sunday, at marami pang ibang mga projects that I think are in the works so abangan natin yun. I love you mga Kapamilya. Whatever happens, we’ll get back up,” he said.
