MANILA, Philippines – Judy Ann Santos, the Queen of Philippine Soap Opera, makes a TV comeback as guest co-host of ABS-CBN’s morning talk show “Magandang Buhay,” joining hosts Jolina Magdangal and Melai Cantiveros in perking momshies’ mornings with relatable conversations and inspiring stories.
“It’s been one year since lumabas ako sa telebisyon. It’s always a good feeling to be back, especially here at the ABS-CBN compound. Napaka-familiar yung pakiramdam na makita kayo lahat muli. Thank you very much for this opportunity dahil talagang happy na happy ang puso ko,” Juday said in the live episode aired last Tuesday (June 21).
She said it was her first time to be on a live show again but promised viewers that, like her co-hosts Jolina and Melai, she would regain her groove.
“First time ko ulit magka-live show. Humanda kayo sa akin. Makakasanayan ko rin yung mga sayawan sa umaga,” Judy Ann stated.
In the meantime, Melai said that she is fortunate to co-host alongside two showbiz legends, while Jolina was pleased that her wish for her close friend to be a guest co-host in the program was granted.
In the episode, the three momshies interviewed Lovi Poe, the lead star of “Flower of Evil,” about her character and her working relationship with Piolo Pascual. She was joined by her co-stars, Pinky Amador and Rita Avila, and director Darnel Villaflor.
For Lovi, “He is the most genuine actor I have ever worked with in a show. He is very nice and caring. He is very sincere also. He has all the good qualities you have been looking for in a guy.”
Jolina and Melai, on the other hand, did not miss their chances to ask Judy Ann about her thoughts on Piolo as he was also her loveteam in the past.
“Actually, Piolo is a very good actor. He is professional. He knows how to make her partners feel ‘kilig’,” she said.
Viewers will get to see more of Judy Ann as she joins Jolina and Melai in the fresh episodes of the morning show.
