FIVE years after the death of husband Johnny Delgado, actress-director Laurice Guillen discloses that she is longing for male companionship.

“But from the start,” Direk Laurice said, “I’d make it clear to him na ‘di ko ini-expect na magiging intimate kami sa isa’t isa.

I just want somebody na matatawagan ko if I need to have someone to talk to. Or have a companion kung may pupuntahan ako.

Ang lungkot, ha, kapag dumarating ka sa bahay at wala ni isa kang maka-usap.

“Okay, may dalawa akong anak (She has two grown-up daughters.), pero may sarili na rin silang buhay. Kaya mahirap nang asahan,” she said with a sigh.

That’s why she appreciates it when she’s busy. Like now, as she has a new directorial project for GMA 7, “Second Chances.”

“Second Chances” is a story about heartaches and the healing power of love. Starring in it are Jennylyn Mercado, Camille Prats, Rafael Rosell and Raymart Santiago. Also part of the cast are Roi Vinzon, Mariam Quiambao, Gerard Pizarras, Luis Alandy, Jackie Rice and Ricky Davao.

“I know most of them, that’s why it’s a breeze working with them. Kaya, we have time to talk. Na, of course, I welcome,” she revealed, smiling.

“Second Chances” started airing last January 13.(MNS)
