Nowadays, it has become almost effortless for fans to go peel away the mask and see what their favorite celebrities’ real lives are like. Scouring for information about this or that star has become practically convenient with the use of social media. But still, there is a screen in between that helps keep certain secrets from the rest of the world. That is, until they sit down for an interview.
Over the years, Boy Abunda has established a credibility like no other. Becoming one of the most trusted personalities in the world of show business, Kapamilyas have been offered a chance to witness artists pour out their hearts to the King of Talk. So, we wanted to know, what are some of his most heartfelt interviews on Tonight with Boy Abunda.
One that immediately came to mind was sitting down with Sharon Cuneta back in June 2018. This was only the first of their many conversations. But Tito Boy would never forget this in particular because of all the revelations the Megastar had made. “’Yung kanyang inilantad sa kanyang publiko, I will not forget that,” he admitted. Remembering how she became emotional at the time is enough to have any of us teary eyed as well.
“I don’t know why,” Tito Boy started off as he began to talk about the next woman on his list. Last September, he had the chance to chat with Cathy Garcia-Molina. The blockbuster director had shared everything from expectations and demand for movies to her own plan to retire. “I love talking to Cathy,” he added.
A recent interview also touched the King of Talk’s heart and that was with Kim Chiu. “Ang ganda noong narrative,” he explained. Tito Boy knew how authentic her stories were. About family, herself, growing up in the industry and all the expectations that come with it, “naiintindihan ko kasi ‘yung kwento.”
The internet can tell you a lot of things, but it is these one-on-one conversations that would give you the unfiltered answer. Which is why Kapamilya viewers miss spending late nights with Tito Boy.
