There was a time when Erich Gonzales didn’t mind talking about matters of the heart, baring her love life in public. But that was a thing of the past. She said maturity changed her perspective about this.
In a past episode of TWBA, veteran host Boy Abunda recalled Erich’s last guesting wherein she said she was single but not available. He went on to ask for an update about her love life. Erich had so little to say about it, wishing to preserve what she believes should only belong to her.
“Alam n’yo po, Tito Boy, habang tumatanda tayo, dumarating tayo sa punto na gusto natin tahimik na lang na buhay, na kung ano ‘yung personal mong buhay, sa’yo na lang,” she answered.
Erich learned about having the power over her choices and saying ‘no’ if needed. “Pwede naman pala ‘yun, may choice ka. And I know you understand Tito Boy,” she lovingly told Tito Boy when she refused to open up about the topic.
Tito Boy then got curious about Erich’s age because of her words “habang tumatanda tayo.” Then-28-year-old Erich said she feels so old having started in the industry at 14.
Erich’s ticket to showbiz was winning as the Grand Questor in the Kapamilya reality show Star Circle Quest in 2004. This 2021, the premier Kapamilya actress is back on TV via revenge-drama series La Vide Lena, which also stars Carlo Aquino, JC De Vera, Sofia Andres and screen veterans Janice de Belen, Agot Isidro, and Raymond Bagatsing.
