PRIMETIME Queen Marian Rivera said she is enjoyed her stint as host of longest running noontime show on Philippine television "Eat Bulaga."
In an interview with the actress at the recent Yahoo! Celebrity Awards press launch, where she was handed the Media Magnet trophy, Rivera shared that it has been a longtime wish of her to co-host a segment like "Juan for All, All for Juan".
"Kakaiba yung experience na nararanasan ko sa 'Eat Bulaga' kasi hindi ka uma-acting and kung ano yung nakikita mo sa tao, 'yun talaga ang totoo. Nakakatuwa makita yung mga ngiti nila at makatulong na din sa kapwa mo," she said.
Rivera said she wants to co-host the segment -- originally hosted by the comedy trio of Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola and Paolo Ballesteros -- while she is not busy with her other showbiz commitments.
The actress said she is thankful for the warm welcome given to her by the "Eat Bulaga" hosts and staff. She felt at ease with the group.
As to some comments of the audience that she's funny and seems easy to get along with based from her short hosting stint in the program, Marian said that's the real her.
"Sa totoong buhay naman talagang kalog ako. Ang sarap sa pakiramdam kasi ito yung totoong ako, yung Marian na hindi nakikita ng tao. Thankful ako sa Eat Bulaga kasi binigyan ako ng chance na makapagpaligaya ng tao," she said.
Aside from "Eat Bulaga," the Primetime Queen of GMA-7 is gearing up for her self-titled dance program, "Marian."
The actress said she wanted to do a dance show for the longest time and she is thankful to the GMA-7 for finally granting her wish.
With her successful career and happy romantic life, Marian said she couldn't ask for anything more.
"Ang tao kasi hindi naman talaga nauubusan ng pangarap, pero may mga pagkakataon na wala ka na dapat hilingin kundi magpasalamat sa lahat ng biyaya na binigay sa iyo," she said.
"Ang hirap din naman sabihin na wala na akong mahihiling pa kasi ang buhay naman marami kang gustong matupad. Pero sa pagkakataong ito, happy talaga ako," she added. (Sunnex)
