Richard Gutierrez happy about reconciliation of Sarah Lahbati, GMA exec-A A +A
Saturday, March 8, 2014
ACTOR Richard Gutierrez is thankful that all is well now between his girlfriend Sarah Lahbati and GMA Films president Annette Gozon-Abrogar.
"I was very happy and there's relief that finally they were able to forgive each other. Finally lahat ng pinagdaanan nila, ngayon tapos na," said the 30-year-old actor at a recent press conference.
The former GMA talent added that in the start of the new year, Lahbati, with his help, decided to settle all her differences with the people she was at odds with in 2013.
Gutierrez said his girlfriend wanted a clean start again in the business.
"Matagal ng balikan sa court, nakakapagod and ang daming kaso. (There's) so much negative energy and we just want to start the year positive. Napag-usapan namin na kung pwedeng tapusin yung problema, tapusin na para pareho kaming mapayapa at makapag trabaho na," he said.
Earlier, Lahbati said "under the table" deals between GMA Artist Center and Icons Management. She filed four charges against Abrogar, which were later on junked by the Quezon City Prosecutor's Office. The television executive, on her part, filed libel case against the actress.
Months later, both camps decided to withdraw Abrogar's charge and Lahbati's petition for review.
Gutierrez hopes this is a good start again for her girlfriend of two years.
Meanwhile, the actor confirmed that Lahbati will be part of his family's latest reality show "It Takes Gutz to be A Gutierrez" on E!
He said many questions about him, his girlfriend and the entire Gutierrez clan, will be answered in the new program.
"Ito na yung kasagutan sa mga tanong na yan (kung may baby nga ba). Hindi ito edited, hindi ito scripted. Kung ano yung pinagdadaanan ng bawat isa or ng buong pamilya, malalaman ninyo," he said.
When asked if the viewers will see a wedding at the end of the six-part show, Richard said they are not yet ready to settle down anytime soon as they have a lot of things to do with their respective personal and professional life.
But one thing is for sure, he sees himself spending his future with Lahbati.
"I won't be with her if I don't see myself with her in the long run. Kami ni Sarah, tried and tested na yung relationship namin after what we've been through. Strong yung relationship namin. We went through tough times and andiyan parin kami sa isa't isa." (Sunnex)
