Assunta De Rossi Takes A Leave After Filming 'Higanti' To Concentrate On Having Her Own Baby

ASSUNTA DE ROSSI just came from a vacation in Amanpulo with hubby Jules Ledesma, and his two kids from his first marriage, when she attended the presscon of her new movie, “Higanti”. “Matagal nang plan ang vacation na yan, hindi matuloy kasi busy ako sa GMA soap ko, ‘Magkaibang Mundo’, then I was shooting pa ‘Higanti’,” she says. “So ngayong natapos na yung soap at ang shooting ng movie, finally, natuloy na rin kami.”

She was only 20 years old when she won a couple of best actress awards for the film “Hubog” in 2001. She played the lead role in other films, then suddenly got married to Cong. Jules in 2004. She didn’t leave her showbiz career and would still do teleseryes and movies every now and then. She now plays the lead role once again in “Higanti”, a movie that is entered in the Metro filmfest but will be shown in various foreign countries first.

“Reunited kami rito ni Jay Manalo, who was with me in ‘Hubog’,” she says. “I play his wife na hiniwalayan niya for his mistress, Katrina Halili. Corrupt congressman siya rito and he’d do everything in his power para mailayo ako sa mga anak namin, sina Meg Imperial and Jon Lucas. You’d think the title refers to me dahil gusto kong maghiganti kay Jay sa ginawa niya sa’kin, but it will be revealed na ang dami palang ibang gustong maghiganti sa kanya dahil sa dami ng atraso niya.”

After “Higanti”, she’d rest and won’t accept any new assignments for a while. “Gusto naming mag-concentrate in having a baby. Yung daughter ni Jules, 20 years old na and she’s now working. Yung son niya, nasa college na rin. 12 years na kaming naghihintay ng sarili naming baby pero hindi pa ibinibigay, e. Now, I’ll do everything magka-baby lang kami, kahit in vitro fertilization. Akong may problema kasi retroverted ang uterus ko, may myoma pa and I also have endometriosis. Buti na lang, we’re blessed para ma-afford lahat ng medical procedures na gagawin sa akin. We trust the Lord na kung gugustuhin niya, we’ll have our own child at the right time, in His own time.”
