Ellen Adarna: Goodbye, showbiz!

Sorry guys. Ellen Adarna is turning her back on show business.
 
Her father, a wealthy businessman based in Cebu, has summoned his “prodigal daughter” to go back to him, three years after their misunderstanding.
 
“I'm going back to Cebu next year and I think 90% I'm gonna quit with my dad asking me to go back. And I am convinced to go back,” she told Yahoo! Philippines OMG! at the #MomolReady Party by FHM and Gillette Fusion Proglide.

The Kapuso star also said she misses the corporate life. She used to work for her father’s primary business, a chain of motels in Cebu, Manila and Davao.
 
“I'll work for my family again. Marketing, I guess, since we're building condominiums now. I'm more of a corporate girl.
 
“I am the type who wants an 8-to-5 job. I grew up like that. And then I resigned to my father and went here. I'm not really patient [in the showbiz grind].”
 
But going back to Cebu isn’t entirely the reason why she’s quitting showbiz. Ellen doesn’t seem to enjoy some of the not so glamorous aspects of the industry.
 
“I don't like the waiting, the long hours. Some people are very unprofessional. I hate it when people waste your time coz for me time is gold. That's about it.”
 
Gearing up for her last project
 
Ellen will exit showbiz on a high note as she plays the  lead role in Gil Portes’ “Ang Tag-araw ni Twinkle,” an entry to the Film Development Council of the Philippines’ Sineng Pambansa Film Festival, which kicks off  on Sept. 11 and ends Sept. 17 at all SM Cinemas nationwide.
 
The 25-year-old sultry movie star relates that her character in “Tag-araw” mirrors herself. And although she never went to rehab, Ellen said she can easily relate to her role.
 
“I play a troubled teenager who got into drugs and then went to rehab. I based [my acting] on my experiences. Let me say I’m 99% [of the character].”
 
Yes, she's single!
 
And for those too embarrassed to ask, Ellen is currently single and isn’t ready to settle down.
 
“Not yet! I just broke up with my boyfriend. I don't have plans of settling down,” she said, referring to her beau of three years, Filo Cucueco.
 
Who could be her Mr. Right?
 
"I'm very hard to handle. [I want] someone who will understand me. Someone who will not cage me, and someone who will just let me be and trust me… and of course tall. I like tall and good-looking.”
 
The “motel heiress” said she’s not keen on finding a wealthy man.
 
“As long as he's hardworking… I can stand on my own. [A rich guy] is not something I'm really looking for. That's never been a problem.”
