Her version of Angeli is actually much nastier than that of Lorna Tolentino in the original movie. Hers is an out and out contravida without any redeeming value, but that’s understandable since this is a soap on TV. She was also contravida to Yasmien Kurdi in her last soap, “Yagit”. We just wish LJ would be given a meatier lead role by GMA-7 since she has proven her acting capabilities in the movies, notably in “Anino sa Likod ng Buwan” where she even won an international best actress award.
About her personal life, LJ admits she’s now cozy with Paolo Contis but getting married is still out of the question. “Gusto ko ring lumaki ang anak ko si Aki na may buong pamilya but we don’t want to rush things,” she says. “Gusto muna naming maging stable kami at mas maayos ang lahat.”
Paolo is still legally married to Lian Paz, with whom she has two daughters, and they have yet to legally annulled their marriage.
