MANILA (Mabuhay) — Although she has proven her mettle as a TV host, actress Judy Ann Santos still misses doing TV soap operas.

Santos currently hosts two shows on ABS-CBN: the reality show “I Do” and the kiddie game show “Bet On Your Baby”.

“Nami-miss ko din naman. Nagkataon lang na ito ang nakahatag ngayon. Hindi din naman ako nagrereklamo. Masayang-masaya nga ako at least marami akong time for my kids for my family at saka ‘yung teleserye kasi ay napag-uusapan pa lang,” she said.

“Yun naman talaga ang plano — na ang lahat ng ito eh kapag may game show eh hindi na muna magte-teleserye para hindi naguguluhan ‘yung mga tao kung ano ba talaga ‘yung ginagawa ko sa partikular na buwan na ‘yon,” explained Santos, who also hosted two editions of the culinary game show “MasterChef Pinoy Edition.”

Santos, whose last soap was the 2013 revenge drama “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala,” which also starred Sam Milby and KC Concepcion, said she’s just waiting for the right time and project for her teleserye comeback.

“Kasi ang hirap tapatan ng ‘Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala’ at least for me. Ang taas kasi ng pag-goodbye namin sa ‘Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala.’ So kailangan kung panibagong teleserye, dapat mas exciting, mas interesting na plot, mas kakapitan ‘yung ganoon at saka mas iba ‘yung ipapakita. So we are just taking our time,” Santos said. (MNS)
