After many years of being a Kapuso, even becoming one of its biggest stars, heartthrob Dingdong Dantes set foot on his home studio’s rival network, ABS-CBN, on July 27.
Although many were shocked to see Dingdong inside the ABSCBN building last July 27, he nevertheless had a purpose for being there because he was invited as guest celebrity VJ for MYX, the network’s music channel.
Dingdong’s stint in MYX, which is part of his promotion of “The Dingdong Dantes Experience” video and music album, will air from Aug. 9 to 22. When cornered for an interview, Dingdong reminisced the past. “Naaalala ko, semi-regular ako dati sa isang show dito [ABSCBN], yung ‘Keep On Dancing.’” he said when interviewed by a “Showbiz News Ngayon” reporter.
“[Looking around now], parang walang nagbago.” What Dingdong meant was that he still feels at home with ABS-CBN.“Ang ganda naman ng pakikitungo sa akin magmula nang… pagdating ko … hanggang ngayon,” he said about his visit. Did he fear bumping into his ex-girlfriend Karylle in the ABSCBN hallways?
“Hindi naman. Wala namang dapat ikatakot or iwasan.” Dingdong added that if it happens, he will definitely greet her. “Siguro I’ll tell her, ‘Nice place you got here.’” Dingdong and Karylle were sweethearts for more than a year until everything soured in their relationship. The actor is said to be the current boyfriend of Marian Rivera, although no admission has been made. (mb.com.ph)
