AICELLE Santos, co-judge of Pops Fernandez in “Centerstage”, says she also misses all their colleagues in the show, plus all her co-stars in “All Out Sundays” where she’s a regular in the “Tapsikret” live comedy portion.

“I miss interacting with the stars na kasama ko sa show kasi masaya kaming lahat sa set, e,” she says. “Lalo na kay Miss Pops, na never kong naisip na makakasama ko sa isang show balang araw dahil fan niya lang ako noon. E, ngayon, nasa bahay lang ako lagi dahil sa lockdown and I really miss the moments that I am working and having fun with them."

So how does she pass the time away while at home? “Ay, binalikan ko ang isang kaibigang medyo napabayaan ko noong sobrang busy ako dahil sa patong-patong na work schedules ko,” she says. “Binalikan ko ang dati kong laging ginagawa, playing the piano, and it’s so nice to reconnect with an old friend.”

She did a video of her singing Vanessa Carlton’s hit song, “A Thousand Miles”, while accompanying herself on the piano, then posted it in her social media account. The response of her followers was overwhelmingly positive. They say she gave a very relaxing performance in these stressful times we’re having now and she should do more numbers with her reconnected friend. As one netizen said, “Kakainggit ka naman at ang ganda ng bonding nyo ng old friend mo. Please do reconnect with your friend more often. More songs please!”

And how’s married life with broadcaster Mark Zambrano? “Ayun, balak sana naming ituloy ang honeymoon namin this summer season, kasi hindi pa kami talaga nakakapag-honeymoon since our wedding noong November dahil busy kami sa trabaho. Plano nga namin, itong summer na ito, kaso nangyari naman itong lockdown. Bawal magbiyahe, walang mga eruplano. So tengga rin kami sa bahay, just like the rest of us, praying na matapos na itong corona virus ordeal na ating pinagdaraanan.”
