Center stage

A KAPUSO actress refused to speak up on the rumor that she's moving out of Triple A, the talent management owned by Tony Tuviera.

Speculations had it that the reason is because of the rumored feud between her and Marian Rivera - a prized talent of Triple A.

What can Andrea say about the said conflict between her and Marian?

“Ako po, para sa akin, wala naman po talagang problema. Hoping ako na maging tapos na rin sa mga tao. Kasi ano, burden din sa kanila na meron silang kinaiinisan or inaaway na hindi naman kailangan, kasi wala naman talagang anything na dapat pag-awayan.”

The actress admits that she got affected with her past issue with Marian.

“Naapektuhan din po talaga ako, kasi siyempre, ano yun, e...Hindi naman lingid sa kaalaman ng mga tao na ate ate ko si Ate Yan, tapos kuya rin ang tingin ko kay Kuya Dong. So, parang hindi lang maganda pag pinagsasabong kami nang ganun, kasi may respetuhan naman kaming lahat.”

Dingdong is Marian's husband, who incidentally is the lead character in the now defunct soap "Alyas RobinHood opposite Andrea.

Andrea is busy for "Alyas Robinhood” Book Two.

“Nag-prepare ako sa part two dahil sinabi nga sa akin na babalik si Venus," referring to her role. Kaya inayos ko yung Muay Thai ko, boxing, para sa mga action scenes. At panay po ang panonood ko ng mga dating episode para hindi ko siya makalimutan.”

This time, will she be more cautious dealing with Dingdong?

"Ever since naman po, alam ko kung saan ako lulugar. Continue ko lang yung ganun, kasi wala naman akong narinig na puna sa mga boss ko o sa mga tao sa set. Ako, naniniwala naman ako na professional naman tayo pagdating sa work. So, feeling ko, same din naman. Kahit naman nung first, si Kuya Dong, hindi naman niya hinahayaan na maapektuhan ng isyu or bashers yung mga kailangan naming gawin for the show."
