On September 27, Hoy Love You Cast Brenna Garcia, Keanna Reeves, Hasna Cabral, Roxanne Guinoo, and Carmi Martin shared their thoughts on the concept of a blended family during an exclusive interview with RAWR Nation.

Brenna revealed she came from a broken family and shared her personal experiences about having a blended family. 

“Galing po kasi ako sa broken family. ‘Yung Mommy ko po, noong bata pa po ako, naghiwalay po sila ng Papa ko. 

“Noong nakilala niya po ‘yung naging daddy po nung sisters ko, ‘yun po ‘yung pinakamahirap na part sa akin is ‘yung tanggapin siya sa life namin. Kasi ano po–sa akin mayroon pong pain ‘yun.”

She admitted having difficulty accepting new members of her family, noting that people should eventually learn to accept the changes in their lives.

“Hindi po ganon kadali tumanggap ng bagong character sa buhay mo. Lalo na galing ka pa sa broken family tapos may bagong papasok sa buhay mo. 

“Eventually, matutunan mo rin pong tanggapin ‘yung mga bagong tao sa buhay mo. And I think ang ganda po noong ganong pangyayari.”

Roxanne shared her experience becoming a step-mom to her real-life partner’s eldest child.

“Ganon din kami sa side ko because my husband may eldest siya. 

“Hindi lang pupwede sa side ko lang, hindi rin pupwede sa side lang nung child because bago pumasok sa isang situation or relationship dapat tanungin mo muna ‘yung sarili mo, ano ‘yung mga consequences.”

She said that those who enter into a new family should be the ones who adjust to the circumstances.

“Lahat ng adjustments dyan, doon dapat sa papasok sa pamilya. And ang igo-goal natin dyan is mahalin mo ‘yung bata because kapag minahal mo ‘yung partner mo, it’s total package dapat.

“Blended family is okay, basta imporatante, communication, nagkakaintindihan, wag mag-o-overstep.”

Keanna shared her personal experience with her in-laws, admitting that they’ve had issues before.

“Hindi kayo kaano-ano kasi, hindi kayo magkadugo. Ang pinag-aawayan niyo dyan is ‘yung jealousy. Nag-aagawan kayo sa atensyon. Anak nila, naging asawa ko so nabawasan ‘yung atensyon, napunta sa akin. So parang ‘yun ang ugat ng mga awayan ng in laws-in laws.”

Hasna shared the story of Sindhutai Sapkal, the ‘Mother of Orphans’ from India. 

“Irerelate ko lang siya doon sa why love is service for me and purpose. Kasi kung mayroon akong idol na sobrang inspiration sa akin ‘yung story niya. Sindhutai Sapkal. 

“Sindhutai Sapkal siya ‘yung tinatawag nating ‘Mother of Orphans.’ 

“Inabandon siya ng asawa niya, muntik na siyang patayin, so naging ano siya, palaboy. And then ang ginawa niya, everytime na makakakita siya ng batang walang magulang, nanglilimos ganyan. Inampon niya. So ganon ka-blended ‘yung family niya.”

She then shared her personal experience, noting that families should prioritize the welfare of their children when entering into a blended family.

“Sa akin ang pinakaimportante is ‘yung mga bata talaga. Sa akin it took time na mangyari siya sa amin ng ex ko, ex dad. Pero sila talaga ‘yung priority in a blended family.”

Carmi discussed her character’s plight in the Kapamilya teleserye, hinting at what in-laws usually experience when encountering new family members.

“Siguro isha-share ko na lang about my role. Na syempre noong nagkaroon ng pumasok na pamilya, second na na nag-asawa na ‘yung anak ko, nagkaroon na ng insecurity. 

“Hindi ko na full time sa aking apo at sa aking anak. The funny side of it was that parati rin akong nandoon. Nandoon ako sa bahay nila, nakikigulo sa kanila, and eventually nagkaroon ng riot doon sa story.”
