SHE CAME back to take care of her properties, sold most of them. Then, after sometime spending time with her family, especially her son, former actress Klaudia Koronel goes back to the life she embraced in America.
And while in the country, Klaudia sought her most missed friends in the business-the movie press.
What was her life?
“Most of you nalaman at nabalitaan na what happened to my marriage. I won’t go to details na. Pero umabot ako sa point na inaway ko ang Diyos dahil sa mga nangyari sa akin. Dahil sa pagmamahal ko sa lalaking pinakasalan ko.
“Alam niyo rin noon na ayoko na sana ituloy pero hinabol niya ako. Hindi ako pumirma sa pre-nuptial agreement. I think isa ‘yun. Pero, bilang asawa ko, hindi ko siya sisiraan sa mga tao.
“Ngayon, para pa rin naman kaming magkaibigan. And nandito nga ako para ibenta ibang properties. May mga moments naman na he takes care of me like nung maospital ako doon dahil sa sakit ko sa tiyan. I think, eto ‘yung pinili ko na maging kapalaran ko.”
But Klaudia says that she has ‘manliligaws’ but not really contemplating in getting into another relationship again.
“I came to that point kasi na sa sobrang depressed ko, ang mga nurse dun sa home care namin tinatanong ko nang tinatanong tungkol sa divorce, kung may asawa ba sila and konti na lang pwede na ako mag-snap. Ang bigat. Kaya malungkot, malayo rin ako sa inyong lahat, especially family ko.”
She missed acting.
“Kung pwede pa rin naman. Kaya lang hindi pa ako makapag-stay nang mas matagal. Kailangan ko pa ring bumalik doon for my status. Ang dami kong sakit na naramdaman noon. Namatay ang tatay ko, ayaw ako pauwiin. Kaya grabe ang galit ko noon sa Diyos kasi sabi ko sa Kanya, pinaglalaruan Niya ang buhay ko.”
Klaudia was thankful with the people who were able to enlighten her about her situation and her relstionship with the Lord.
Now, she works as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and has started to plan the life she wants to give her son.
CED TORRECARION has had his bit of the limelight when he did acting bits in the movies and television years ago.
He is back doing a musical play, “The Lost Sheep,” directed by Jon Achaval and will be shared to us on October 27 at the Star Theater (in Star City) with a matinee at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.
The musical play showcases some of the miracles and parables of Jesus Christ as a medium to refute arguments now afflicting Christians about the existence of God.
The Lost Sheep’s tagline says “you must decide it is your choice…” So I asked about the choices he has made in life and the decisions he took.
“There was a time when I wanted to give up everything. ‘Yung babang-baba na ako sa sarili ko. Kinukuwestiyon ko na ang Diyos. Why is this happening? Walang wala na ako kaya gusto ko na i-give up ang buhay ko. Then came that moment, sa Epiphany nung binasa ko, I closed my eyes pagdilat ko I saw His face. Bumangon ako sa buhay. Now, I am doing things like this-not for the fame, not for the money. Direk Jon is our Papi. Parang tatay na namin. The moment he gave me the script, when I read it, alam ko na this is his legacy. Kaya gusto namin maipakita at maipalabas.”
At one point in his showbiz life, Ced was linked to Katherine Luna. Sa time na linked na rin ito with Coco Martin. So, people speculated that the baby Katherine carried was his!
“Nag-date kami. Oo, nakasabay kay Coco. Haha. Ano ba kayo. Ang tagal na niyan. Am a safe traveler. Gumagamit ako ng alam niyo na. So I know it in my heart na hindi ako nagka-anak. Ano ba kayo. Haha. Nasa “Ang Probinsyano” ako now. Also in “Asintado.” For a time, inalagaan ko at minahal ang anak ni Vhong Navarro kay Bianca Lapus, si Ice, nung naging kami. Kaya mahal ako ni Vhong.”
I was able to know that Ced has political ambitions for his beloved Bacolod.
“Ang bilis ni Tita Pilar! Contemplating pa rin. May invitations na. Pero dito muna ako sa “The Lost Sheep.” Malalaman niyo naman agad ‘yan once I have decided.”
The modern day Atheist soldier who confronts Jesus about the existence and the love of God will be portrayed by a Pastor in real life, Reuben Aslor, Lovely Rivero as Mary, Jeffrey Santos as Peter and Ced as Jesus.
