Rufa Mae Quinto returns as a Kapuso, admits to missing the Philippines, Showbiz, GMA Network

“Hindi, una namiss ko na talaga ng Philippines at tsaka lahat-lahat at tsaka ‘yung showbiz. ‘Yun talaga ‘yung unang-una at GMA7.”- Rufa Mae Quinto.

On June 6, comedienne Rufa Mae Quinto admitted she missed the Philippines, Showbiz, and GMA Network with her return to the Kapuso Network at the media conference for her upcoming sitcom, Tols.

“Hindi, una namiss ko na talaga ng Philippines at tsaka lahat-lahat at tsaka ‘yung showbiz. ‘Yun talaga ‘yung unang-una at GMA7.”



She also confessed that she felt homesick for her home country and that her family also missed the Philippines.

“Tapos ‘yung anak ko gusto din dito, nami-miss na din dito, gusto rin siya mag-Tagalog, pati ng asawa ko. Tapos iisipin ko kung babalik ako doon, gusto ko din doon sa America, pero iniisip parang wala akong kausap alam mo ‘yun nosebleed ako everyday. Lagi akong malungkot.”

She then expressed her intention of focusing on her career alongside being a wife and a mother while listing the opportunities she received from the Kapuso Network.

“Masaya contentment todo na tols, pero ‘yung alam ko na hindi lang ito ‘yung purpose ko in life na mag-alaga ng anak. 

“‘Yun parang hindi kumpleto ang buhay ko kung ang gagawin ko lang ay mag-alaga ng anak, maghugas ng pinggan pagsilbihan ang asawa. Parang sabi ko there’s more. So sakto naman pagdating ko sabi ko ‘Ay mayroong offer agad.’ Bukod sa Sparkle Management contract at GMA ay nandito po ‘yung Tols, isang season agad tapos na din tapos ‘yung IOS–AOS [All-Out Sundays].”

She also recalled how she received the opportunity for her upcoming GTV sitcom and how it was like working with her young co-stars.

“Parang God’s will ang lahat ng nangyari na feel ko lang kasi wala ng quarantine, so sabi ko pwede na kaming umuwi-uwi kasi nga– Babe, so sabi ko try ko lang. Tapos nag hi-hello ako. Alam mo naman close ako sa Kapuso Network, so ayun pagka-hi hello doon na dumami ang friends. Hi-Hello tapos bitin na, Todo na Tols di ba? Tapos ang gugwapo pa, so sabi ko ang sarap sarap talaga ng trabaho ko. 

“So maraming salamat sa GMA at kay Tyrone na nagbigay ng chance, Joey Abacan for this, todo na Tols, at siyempre si Direk, kung hindi niya ako inapprove, malamang hindi ako ‘to.”

Quinto stars in the upcoming GTV sitcom Tols alongside Kelvin Miranda, Shaun Salvador, Abdul Rahman, Betong Sumaya, Arkin Del Rosario, Raymond Mabute, and Olivia Bihag.



The family sitcom, under the collaboration of GMA Network and Merlion Events Production Inc. and the direction of Monti Parungao, premieres on June 25 at 7 p.m. on GTV.
