Wondered how hot Annabelle Rama was in the ‘70s? Check out these throwback photos from an episode of late-night comedy talk show Gandang Gabi Vice!
The ‘70s was the era of showbiz bombshells and Annabelle was one of them. She did sexy films like the one where she played Eve; her bosom covered only with leaves.
While her sexy photos flashed on the screen, the actress-turned-talent manager said she only entered showbiz to get close to her ultimate crush, now-husband Eddie Gutierrez. She thought her sexy image would easily get his attention. But they never had the chance to work together. She also had to pursue him for years.
“Lahat ng klaseng pa-sexy ginawa ko na. Maglalakad ako sa kalye na ang iksi ng damit ko tapos naka-ganyan [sexy top] lang ako… Pagpasok mo sa showbiz, mahirap kaya gumawa ka ng gimmick para mapansin ka. Ang paraan ko, dahil maganda ang katawan ko, pinakita ko,” she told Vice Ganda.
Annabelle continued, “Hindi ako pinalad na makuha sa showbiz na maka-partner ko siya. Siguro dahil hirap ako sa dialogue, Bisaya, matigas ang dialogue ko.”
Annabelle boldly said her body can put her daughter Ruffa Gutierrez to shame. “Si Ruffa, magaling lang siya, mag-English. Maganda lang siya pero sa kaseksihan, talbog siya.” From there, Annabelle showed how she slayed the runway back then.
During the interview, Annabelle couldn’t help but comment on how Vice rose to stardom. She recalled a time she and Eddie watched Vice’s show in the States and now he’s already a big Kapamilya star.
