Max Collins Celebrates 4th Anniversary With BF Pancho Magno, Finally Learns In 'Someone To Watch Over Me' That Tom Rodriguez Has Alzheimer's Disease

MAX COLLINS celebrated her 4th anniversary with BF Pancho Magno who greeted her in social media with the Bryan Adams song “We’re in Heaven” then said: “Happy Anniversary, My Love!” Both of them have another reason to be happy. They are both in hit primetime shows on GMA-7 since Pancho is in “Encantadia” while Max is in “Someone to Watch Over Me” that reign supreme in their respective timeslots.

As Irene in “Someone to Watch Over Me”, Max doesn’t know yet that Tom Rodriguez as TJ has early onset Alzheimer’s disease. She follows him to his house and meets Tom’s wife, Lovi Poe as Joanna. Tom sees the two of them together and this triggers an attack of his Alzheimer’s disease. He gets disoriented seeing the two women in his life, his past and his present.

It’s the first time for Max to see Tom having an attack of his disease and she is deeply shocked. She explains to her Tita Rose (Luz Valdez) and Yaya Osang (Shyr Valdez) that it’s Tom’s disease which makes him return to her as his first girlfriend, because he remembers his past with her and not with Lovi. She admits that she still loves Tom and wants to help him now that he is sick.

She apologizes to Lovi, who then implores her to leave Tom for good. Meanwhile, Tom remembers his own mom who’s estranged from his dad and threatens to punch his father, Edu Manzano as Buddy. Tom’s violent streak as TJ seems to be getting more and more pronounced.
