AT the pocket presscon for her upcoming anniversary concert on November 16 at the Music Museum celebrating her 2 decades in the entertainment industry, it is Patricia Javier’s better-half, chiropractor Doc Rob Walcher who shared with us their more personal side.
Though he was keen on keeping their long distance relationship, when Doc Rob weighed the pros and cons, it was the con that made him break up with Patricia.
“We were both heart-broken. But at that time, I saw and I felt that I won’t be able to keep up with her showbiz life. We were so far from each other. Social media was not there yet but calls and text messages only. Or one of us has to travel just to be by each other’s side.”
It was Patricia who made the sacrifices. By being with the man she loves and became the Queen of Doc Rob’s life and they were blessed with two boys, Robert and Ryan.
And everything just fell into place. They uprooted themselves from San Diego and Patricia is back into her acting and singing career while helping Doc.
Wearing a crown literally and figuratively, Mrs. Universe 2019 will vie with other Mrs. Universe from different parts of the world in May 2019. But this November 16, she is set to celebrate her life for the advocacies she has set in life embarking on health, wellness and beauty with Doc Rob.
Join her for this “Concert for A Cause.”
PEOPLE who watched last Sunday’s episode of “ASAP” in Sydney, Australia had their “emo” moments when in the tribute for Ariel Rivera, Regine Velasquez shared the stage with him in their “Photograph” duet.
Memories flooded back. And it was just so good to see them singing those sweet music together literally.
Regine’s sked at the Kapamilya lot has been filled with a comedy show, a contest where she is judge and a movie.
And everyone who transfers to Kapamilya usually sets their foot at the “MMK” (Maalaala Mo Kaya). A good script is being written now for her comeback.
Meanwhile, it is Ariel who will be in “MMK”s episode this Saturday, November 10 from the script of Mae Rose Balanay and Arah Jell Badayos and directed by Mervyn B. Brondial.
Researcher Chona Marie C. Catibog found an interesting story that Ariel (as Rey) will share with Nash Aguas (as CJ) , Eula Valdez (as Jane) and Yñigo de Belen (young CJ).
Growing up, Jane (49) simply dreamt of being able to work in an office just as her mother did during her time.
However, this left her under the care of her grandparents most of the time. Nevertheless, when it was time for Jane herself to become a mom soon after she was married to Engineer Rey Reynaldo (54), her dream stood still.
She was determined to care for her own family while building her career then as a manager in a travel agency. However, in the midst of her pregnancy, she caught an infection which led her into discovering the risks her baby was possibly facing.
Despite given a choice whether she was to continue or abort the pregnancy, Jane and Rey decided to keep their baby and hoped for a miracle.
After nine months of bearing her child, the couple was happy to find their son Caldwell Jones or CJ (21) very normal looking.
However, after a few months, Jane discovered that she had given birth to a son with disabilities—both in hearing and in speaking.
Alongside this were CJ’s mood swings and violent behavior—results of his frustration which Jane tried addressing by getting all the help she could find. Until CJ found his talent and passion for visual arts with which he vented out his frustrations.
However, when it was time for CJ to achieve his own dream, it was Jane’s time to give up hers. Jane had quit her job to enroll herself in college to study special education. And in a matter of years, CJ was able to enter his dream university as a fine arts student and Jane decided to let go of her career to follow her son where she knew he needed her. She, too, went to school as his son’s sign language interpreter. But as time passed, Jane found out CJ was suffering with depression due to the abrupt change in his environment.
He struggled, given his condition, to find his place in this new unfamiliar world. This led Jane and CJ into a difficult relationship especially given that CJ returned to his violent behavior. This led Jane into questioning her fate and regretting the life she was given as a mother. She arrived at a decision not to push through with her son’s college education. But CJ, despite his depression, remained with courage and determination. It was because of CJ’s attitude towards his dream that Jane was shook back into her senses. Jane and CJ finished college together with an award for creating the best thesis—a children’s book that tells the story of CJ as a deaf-mute student both written and illustrated by CJ himself.
Touching. Another story that will be etched in our hearts, mind and soul.
