KC and Richard answer more issues
By Rachelle Siazon
Now that their movie For The First Time is underway, KC Concepcion and Richard Gutierrez are thankful that what started as a mere "what if" is now coming soon in the movie theatres. "Ito na yung moment na isang panaginip lang na nakita namin ni KC na posible. We share that same vision na ang ganda nung itensyon. Na makatrabaho ako sa ABS [CBN] and at the same time si KC on GMA. Para i-unite yung dalawang networks na never nagkaisa. And for the first time ‘di ba?" Richard gushed. And KC was quick to agree, "Hindi na importante kung aling kampo galing. Anyway lahat naman po tayo nandito para sa pelikula, para sa istoryang gusto naming ishare sa sa mga tao. So ang saya rin makaita na peace lahat, good vibes lahat."
There’s much speculation however as to whether the same could be said about KC’s parents, Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion, who are yet to cross paths. Last week, Sharon admitted in her interview on The Buzz that she deliberately avoided Gabby during Cristy Fermin’s star-studded birthday bash. But could KC’s launching movie premiere make it possible for Sharon to see eye to eye with Gabby? That remains to be seen. But one thing’s for sure, KC would definitely invite both her mom and dad to this much-awaited event. "Of course lahat po iimbitahan namin. Lahat po ng minamahal namin, lahat ng nagmamahal sa amin… Lalo naman yung mga magulang namin. Sana naman po nandun sila," said the beautiful actress who obviously doesn’t want to touch on the issue surrounding her parents.
When the two were asked if they already have plans of following the footsteps of the Sharon-Gabby love team, Richard carefully replied, "For me kasi, much respect to Tito Gabby and Tita Shawie, ang hirap i-compare. [Naka] focus kami sa ginagawa namin ngayon, dun muna." KC continued to explain, "Hindi namin goal na maabot yung naabot nila, or maging parang sila. Sobrang ibang level na po talaga sila. [At] nirerespeto namin sila, ako bilang magulang ko sila also as actors themselves ‘di ba?" She also claimed that they can only hope that Shawie-Gabby fans would extend the same support to her and Richard in their upcoming offering.
As for doing projects together after For The First Time, both KC and Richard insisted that though they are open to possibilities, they are also willing to take things as they come. "Ganun din po ‘yun. Ayaw namin lumaktaw ng malayo. Kami po kasi ni KC, we live for the moment. And ayaw namin ng masyadong malayo yung tingin. Kasi ‘pag ganun baka hindi na po kami maka-focus sa ginagawa namin. So dito muna kami ngayon. Kung anong meron kami ngayon, masaya po kami dun," Richard stressed.
