Exclusive: Dinner with Celebrities

Food plus a good conversation with your celebrity crush or idol? Sounds like a dream!

Celebrities are used to going on night outs with their closest showbiz peers. But, for a change, how about they hang out with somebody who’s not from their squad or even a person they’re meeting for the first time?

In this fun video from ent.abs-cbn.com, Kapamilya stars name the famous local celebrity they’d like to have dinner with. Most of them picked the actors they look up to, while some chose an old friend or a crush.

Given her thriving career, Kathryn Bernardo is an inspiration to many newbie artists; hence the likes of Angelica Lao, Yukii Takahashi, and Sean Tristan would love to have dinner with her. Sean mentioned that his best friend Bianca de Vera worked well with Kathryn when they played sisters in 2 Good 2 Be True, so he hopes he and Kathryn click too.

Of course, it’d be better to share the table with both Kathryn and her beau Daniel Padilla. To Raven Rigor, that would be the best dinner of his life. He’d also pick Piolo Pascual so he could talk to him about acting. Jeremiah Lisbo likewise would love to have dinner with Piolo for the very same reason, “Kasi ang tagal na niya sa industry at and dami na niyang iba’t ibang genre na nagampanan.”

These youngsters know who to pick as role models in pursuing their acting career, Drama Queen Judy Ann Santos included. “Siya ang superstar. Magaling siya sa comedy, sa drama, kilig, horror. Lahat ng genre kaya niya,” gushed Adrian Lindayag, who looked so ‘kilig’ just talking about Juday. The same goes for Majoy Apostol.

When talking about inspiration, we couldn’t leave out the power woman and FPJ’s Batang Quiapo star Charo Santos, whom singer-songwriter Angela Ken would like to enjoy good food and good conversation with. 

Elisse Joson has got the privilege to work with Diamond Star Maricel Soriano in Pira-Pirasong Paraiso, so she’d love to get to know the veteran actress better outside the work setting.

For Kaila Estrada, the perfect dinner is shared with Jodi Sta. Maria, “I would like to have a conversation with her, siguro get some advice. Also I’m curious to know what she does to prepare.” A dinner date with Jericho Rosales would make her happy too. “Kasi crush ko siya,” she giggled. 

Aya Fernandez and Kaori Oinuma dream of meeting Angel Locsin in person, and of course, bonding with her over dinner. JC De Vera would love to spend some ‘bro time’ with Jericho Rosales and John Lloyd Cruz and learn more about acting from them.

Senior High lead actress Andrea Brillantes is vocal about her fangirling moments with Anne Curtis, so we’re not surprised she thought of the It’s Showtime host. Meanwhile, Vice Ganda is the choice of former PBB housemate Sky Quizon.

Maris Racal is thrilled just imagining that she’s having dinner with Angel Aquino, but we think she’d amuse the seasoned actress just as much. Gela Atayde thought of Angelica Panganiban, while Chie Filomeno would like to have dinner with globally acclaimed actor John Arcilla. For Zeus Collins, it’d be fun to bond with his idol comedy genius Michael V.

Meanwhile, some would love to have dinner with friends or special someone. RK Bagatsing and Jane Oineza were in sync as they point at each other. RK joked, “Si Jane Oineza, ‘pag napapanood ko siya, tuwang-tuwa ako sa tawa niya, eh. ‘Pag nag-joke ako ‘pag nag-dinner kami, magiging masaya ‘yung diner namin.” Jane burst into laughter!

Daniela Stranner would love to get to know Francine Diaz a lot better over good food. Janella Salvador would pick the two ‘Jane’ in her life – Jane Oineza and Jane de Leon because she misses them so much.

Darren Espanto shared, “Why not have dinner with Cassy Legaspi and her parents?” The camera panned to Cassy, who heard Darren’s answer and replied, “Okay, let’s go!”
