Singer-actress Angeline Quinto has revealed that career is one of the reasons why she did not pursue a relationship with singer Erik Santos.
“Yung mama ko gusto na rin po nya talaga ako magkaanak. Sabi ko po sa kanya kung magkakaroon po ako ng baby baka bumalik kami ng Sampaloc. Baka mabawasan po ‘yung trabaho ko. ‘Yun po ang sinasabi ko para maintindihan ako ng mama ko,” said Quinto in an interview on “Tonight With Boy Abunda” on ABS-CBN.
Asked who between her and Santos became stupid in love, Quinto said: “Ako po.”
Quinto also said that she does not want to go out on a date right now with anyone but cannot speak for Santos. She replied: “Hindi ko po alam sa kanya pero ako po hindi.”
In March, Quinto confessed the reason why she has not said “yes” to a relationship with Santos.
“Medyo kumplikado lang po. Nanunuod po si mama, baka pag sinagot ko si Eric ang isipin n’ya magpapakasal na po ako agad. Baka hindi ‘yun maintindihan ng mama ko,” she said.
She added: “Sinabi ko naman kay Eric kung gaano ko ka mahal ‘yun.”
Quinto, 26, said that she gets along well with other birit queens Klarisse, Morisette and Jona Viray when they sing in ASAP every Sunday.
She denied rumors that she gets special treatment among the four singers.
“Marami kaming naririnig na sapawan daw kami, pero sa aming apat wala naman pong nagpapa-apekto talaga. Minsan tinatawanan na lang naming kasi alam naman naming na ginagawa lang naman namin ‘yung trabahong ibinibigay sa amin ng ASAP,” she said.
Quinto, who stars in new film “That Thing Called Tanga Na,” also said that she wants to stay humble all the time.
“Ako po talaga ang iniingatan ko na sana huwag pumasok sa isip ko na kahit napakaraming artista na ang nakatrabaho ko, ‘yung pagiging humble mo, isa yan sa makakatulong para tumagal ka pa lalo sa industriya,” she added.
When asked who’s the best singer of them all, Quinto laughed: “Ang hirap. Na-pressure ako.”
Quinto rose to fame when she won “Star Power: Sharon’s Search for the Next Female Pop Superstar” in 2011. She has also recorded CDs, staged concerts and appeared in other movies and television shows.
