Hiwaga ng Kambat star Edward Barber appeared on Tonight With Boy Abunda last Thursday, August 1, to discuss his relationship with Maymay Entrata, the future of their love team and his fulfilled dream of becoming a MYX VJ.
Edward shared that it’s been a longtime dream to become a MYX VJ, but he admitted that it has been challenging. He said that he would feel nervous in the first hour of taping his spiels before eventually loosening up. Boy Abunda asked him to improvise and introduce him as the guest for Edward’s MYX show. Then, they performed “Tatlong Bibe” with matching dance moves to entertain their audience. To combat his anxiety during his MYX shoots, Edward shared that he usually sits still and breathes deeply to release tension from his body and mind.
Maymay Entrata, Edward’s “better half” in the sensational love team MayWard, revealed in one of the TWBA episodes that Edward isn’t good at surprises and usually fails every time. Edward defended himself and said that Maymay has a good instinct and so, she’ll feel that something is off and will not stop questioning Edward until he gives up keeping his surprise. He told the story of how they went to Japan to celebrate Maymay’s birthday last May to have dinner with her family and his father. But he wanted to surprise Maymay and didn’t tell her about his father’s arrival. Unsurprisingly, she had an inkling about what was about to happen, thus ruining his surprise at the last minute.
“Do you look at other girls?” Tito Boy shamelessly asked in which Edward replied, “I can say a hundred percent with complete pride, I don’t.” He revealed that he has never looked at anyone the way he looks at Maymay with love and adoration in his eyes.
Asked about being paired with other actors, just like how Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards were brought together for the film “Hello, Love, Goodbye,” Edward admitted that they have talked about it and agreed that they would pass it up.
August marks the fourth month of Hiwaga ng Kambat, which stars Edward and Grae Fernandez. He plays a town freak with the physical features of a bat and so, Tito Boy showed photoshopped pictures of him rendered on different animals just for fun.
Some fans have been shipping Maymay and Donny Pangilinan for some time now, but Edward denied that he’s jealous of Donny. He shared that they just laugh about the rumors surrounding Maymay and Donny since they all go to the same church usually at the same time.
“No worries at all kasi I trust Maymay and I trust Donny,” he doesn’t mind if Maymay and Donny hang out without him since he knows that their relationship is built on trust. But Edward revealed that the last time he was jealous of someone was when Maymay’s brother was in the Philippines. They’re both close with her brother and so, he feels left out whenever Maymay and her brother are spending time together without him. But he shared that he doesn’t know when was the last time Maymay was jealous because she doesn’t like telling him about it.
