August 20 2014
Veteran kontrabida Jean Garcia has an acting tip for neophyte kontrabida Thea Tolentino. Her wise words: "Kailangan mong angkinin 'yung role mo. Kung kontrabida ka, kontrabida ka talaga."
What do you get when you combine two unattached bachelors with a bubbly teenage girl who claims to be the daughter of one of them? What else but a hilariously riotous sitcom that is characteristic of a GMA KiliTV show that brings bellyaching laughter to viewers week after week. Titled Who’s Your Daddy Now?, this new GMA sitcom stars Joey Marquez, Jean Garcia, Raymart Santiago, Paolo Contis, Alynna Asistio, Julia Lopez, and Ms. Celia Rodriguez. Peter (Joey Marquez), Mario (Raymart Santiago), and Paul (Paolo Contis) co-own an All Event/Party Needs business and are going about their normal lives when 13-year-old Andrea (Alynna Asistio) drops in one day and insists that she is the daughter of either Peter or Mario. Realizing that they both had a past with the girl’s mother but refusing to be singled out as Andrea’s true father, Peter and Mario decide to take the girl in and agree to face the responsibilities of being her “daddies”. With the business-minded Peter and the happy-go-lucky Mario as her daddies, Andrea enjoys her new family albeit the unusual setup. She finds a confidante in the gullible Paul, who is also a friend and apartment boarder of Peter and Mario aside from being their business co-owner, runner and messenger. Andrea also endears herself to the people close to Peter, Mario and Paul. There’s Stephanie (Jean Garcia), Mario’s cousin who is very much in love with Peter. She owns the Laundromat right beside the All Event/Party Needs shop. Then there’s also Madam Candida or Mamu Candy (Celia Rodriguez), the strict owner of the apartment and proprietress of the Pugon de Pandesal bakery. Despite her snootiness, she has a soft spot for Peter and Mario and even becomes motherly to them. She also becomes very fond of Andrea and is oftentimes swayed by the witty teenager. Last but not least is Peter, Mario and Paul’s stay-out maid Diding (Julia Lopez), who is the object of Paul’s affection but is secretly infatuated with Mario. With such a diverse combination of characters and naturally comic stars playing them, Who’s Your Daddy Now? is guaranteed to make viewers roll in laughter. Catch it every Monday night as part of the GMA KiliTV block.
