Living room tour: Janine Gutierrez shares book collection, family photos and memorabilia

Her smile exudes affable vibes – and it made us love her even more since her launching as an official Kapamilya last January. It wouldn’t thus come as a surprise if fans want to discover more about Janine Gutierrez. And what better way to get to know someone than have a peek into her living room!

Janine would begin the living room tour talking about why it’s her most favorite spot in the condo unit she acquired five years ago. She said she likes that area because of the plant decors and her book collection.

Unlike many plantitas who just fell in love with the hobby during this pandemic, Janine has been a plant collector for years. Reading books is one of her ultimate pastimes as well. She has quite a collection of classic novels. She has copies of Jose Rizal books, Picture of Dorian Gray, The Handmaid’s Tale, Love in the Time of Cholera, and Fight Club, which she would recommend to her MMK “Love in Lockdown” leading man JM De Guzman, “Kasi fighter siya.”

Memorabilia and family photos are displayed in a rack – which proves her being family-oriented. Janine showed us an old photo of her dad Monching and her uncle Tonton Gutierrez winning in a race car tournament.  She also keeps her father’s trophies, “Para mayroon akong piece of them, Mommy and Daddy ko, in my house.”

She next flaunted an adorable baby picture of her mom Lotlot de Leon. She also keeps an old vinyl record of her grandma Pilita Corrales, “Wala akong record player pero ang ganda kasi ng album art kaya tinago ko siya.”

She got a photo of her sister Jessica and described their physical differences. She said Jessica is more American –looking – green eyes, brown hair, and mestiza skin.

Janine also has quite a collection of acting awards and we know for sure more and more will be added to her accolades!
