All is well now between Ruffa Gutierrez and her mom Annabelle Rama despite that the latter still seems to have concerns over the former’s non-showbiz boyfriend, Jordan Mouyal.
Apparently, Annabelle got mad upon learning that Ruffa had agreed to do a magazine cover shoot with Jordan without informing her.
“’Di talaga kami nagpaalam kasi alam kong ’di siya papayag. Nalaman niya lang sa news. Bilang manager ko alam kong nagalit siya,” Ruffa said.
Seemingly half in jest, half out of frustration over the situation, Ruffa said at time of interview that she is planning to dare her mom to set her up with someone whom she feels is right for her.
“Parang simula kasi 13 years old ako ayaw na niya (ako magka-boyfriend). Kaya baka pwedeng siya nalang mag set-up sa akin ng (date),” she said, laughing. “Ide-dare ko siya, kung ayaw mo kay Jordan or kung kahit kanino, ikaw nalang magpakilala sa akin.”
Told about her mother’s earlier pronouncement that she’s merely worried about Ruffa being made a punching bag, she laughed, “Hindi na mangyayari ’yun kasi magaling na ako sumuntok… baka sila ang maging battered.”
Ruffa appreciates Jordan’s effort of standing by her no matter what. “Alam mo maganda kasi may paninindigan siya kahit anong gawin ng kahit sino. Ang importante ipaglalaban ka,” she said.
She related how Jordan keeps trying to endear himself to Annabelle, whom Ruffa says remains “dedma.”
“Even if my mom ignores him, nagha-hi lang siya. Si mommy naman parang palaging nakatingin lang sa langit,” she added.
The former beauty queen and Jordan celebrated their first year anniversary as a couple last January. She expressed how happy she is to find a person who loves her unconditionally. Still, they are in no rush to tie the knot.
“Kasi what I’m really focused on now is you know, providing for my kids and their future. I’m a single working mom so importante talaga na i-secure ko ang future nila,” said Ruffa.
Having a hectic work schedule, Ruffa is taking advantage of Holy Week by bringing her whole family to Bali, Indonesia.
“The reason I keep on coming back to Bali is it’s very diverse eh. Pwede kang mag-surf, mag-shopping or swimming,” she said.
Ruffa added that they will also be shooting scenes for the last season of “It Take Gutz To Be A Gutierrez” there.
“I think for me we just need to live our lives and let the camera just follow us around. Mahirap naman kasi magplano kung anong mangyayari sa season 3,” she said. (MNS)
