Those who grew up with a sibling know that nothing quite compares to a brother or sister’s love. They can lend you a helping hand and be there as you chase your dreams.
Jenny Miller sat down with Kapamilya Chat and talked about her relationship with her brother Eian Rances. As the elder sibling, she was among the first people to see Eian’s potential in showbiz. Besides, growing up, Eian got very vocal about his interest in joining the entertainment industry, thus Jenny had to prepare him.
“Gusto niya talaga, eh. Gusto niya on camera siya. After graduation, sumama na talaga sa akin ‘yan. Minsan siya na ‘yung PA ko. Siya ‘yung plus one ko sa mga out of town. So, exposed siya, nakikita niya kung ano ‘yung mga dapat gawin ‘pag pumasok sa showbiz. Napag-aralan niya,” she said.
The family showed full support when Eian started his career and especially when he joined Pinoy Big Brother Kumunity Season 10. If there’s someone in the family who has mastered the ropes of showbiz, it would be none other than Jenny, which is why she makes sure to guide Eian in his actions.
“Ramdam ko ‘yan ‘pag medyo may problema. Well, nandiyan ako lagi for him. Sinasabi ko, ‘Ayusin mo kasi. ‘Wag kang mag-decide ng ganyan. Kung alam mong may masasaktan ka, hinay-hinay lang. I-balance mo lahat ng ginagawa mo.’”
No matter how old they get, he would always run to her for refuge. He confides in her, especially when dealing with the bashers. “Sabi ko, ‘Pinasok mo ‘yan, ‘di ba? So , kasama ‘yan sa showbiz. Bahala ka to deal with it. Pero, for me, manahimik ka, that’s better,’” shared Jenny of the advice she usually gives him.
Jenny is a proud Ate to Eian, who is slowly making it big as a host on Kumu and PIE Channel. She revealed that he is building a new house from his Kumu earnings and that he had reserved a room for her in the house. A sibling will reciprocate the love you give, right?
Besides, Eian is naturally sweet and caring, as Jenny puts it, clingy. “Until now natutulog siya sa tabi ng parents ko ‘pag nasa probinsya. Clingy siya sa parents ko. Sa akin din, eh, no’ng nakatira siya sa akin, magkatabi kami natutulog. Sabi namin, ‘Oo, para makatipid sa kuryente… Siya ‘yung nagba-bond sa family namin,” Jenny divulged, adding that Eian is the organizer of their family gatherings. He is family-oriented and the sweetest among the three youngest boys.
