Annabelle Rama didn’t expect son Richard Gutierrez will admit his relationship with Sarah Lahbati.
“Na-shock ako. Ngayon lang umamin si Richard (tungkol sa relationships,” Annabelle told Yahoo! Philippines OMG! in phone interview. “At nalaman ko lang ito from Jun (Lalin, entertainment columnist and a family friend).”
The controversial talent manager added that she likes Sarah for her son.
“Happy ako. May nakita si Richard sa ugali ni Sarah na gusto niya,” explains Annabelle.
She wants to find out from Richard himself about the status of his relationship with Sarah. But Annabelle can’t do it right away because she is in Cebu to prepare for her candidacy as congressman in next year’s elections.
“Masaya si Richard. Spontaneous, at in love,” Lalin said.
Ruffa weighs in
Sarah also has the vote of Richard’s older sister, Kapatid actress Ruffa Gutierrez.
“So far she hasn’t shown any kamalditahan towards us so why not,” she quipped in an interview with the press at the set of TV5's “Enchanted Garden” in Dinalupihan, Bataan on October 5.
Turning serious, Ruffa added: “There’s nothing bad to say about her. I like Sarah. She’s very marespeto.”
The former beauty queen has nothing but good things to say about Sarah’s physical attributes.
“Maganda naman si Sarah. Ever since I’ve seen her, hindi pa siya leading lady ni Richard, she’s one of few stars na ma baguhan na ang ganda kahit walang make-up.”
Ruffa believes Sarah’s beauty and height make her a perfect beauty pageant contestant.
“She’s matangkad. Dapat nga sumali siya ng beauty pageant,” she explained. “I feel sometimes she’s kind of insecure of her height? Sabi ko, ‘I’m tall too. Use it to your advantage. Iba na yung matangkad’.”
