It seems that the only times I am truly interested in a celebrity is if they were big in the 80’s. And we all know that Manilyn Reynes was very big in the 80’s. It was hard not to say “I used to watch your cheesy horror movies!” but I managed to restrain myself. I did, however, ask if I could take her picture.
This was on the set of Moms, where I also interviewed Lani Mercado and Sherilyn Reyes. Lani was the most reserved of the three. This probably comes from being in the business so long, plus all the hullabaloo that their family has been subjected to in the past year (or was it two?). I don’t blame her. She was very gracious, albeit guarded.
Manilyn and Sherilyn both talked up a storm. It’s easy to get drawn into their little stories about their careers, their families, and what goes on in the show. They were very easygoing. Manilyn was very cheerful and bouncy. Sherilyn was very candid, even mentioning her past and how she’s very grateful that she was given the chance to host a show for mothers.
From the interviews, you can tell that all three women love what they’re doing. All of them at one point talk about how great it is to work on a show that’s close to their hearts.
The staff was really nice to us, too. And jut watching them work, you could tell that like the hosts, they liked what they were doing. The atmosphere behind the camera was very relaxed and happy. Everyone was professional, but informal. It’s a show that I can honestly say is lovely both inside and out (naks!).
