“Sobrang simple namin ni Mar. Sobrang babaw ng kaligayahan namin. Nung nagkakilala kami pareho na kaming matanda. Wag naman matanda. May edad na. So medyo nagsawa na rin s’ya at nagsawa na rin ako. Ayaw na namin ng maingay gusto namin nakakapag-usap kami,” Sanchez said during an interview on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” on ABS-CBN.
“At saka pag mag-asawa kayo, hindi n’yo na kailangang mag-usap. Tinginan na lang ’yan. Kindatan na lang ’yan at alam n’yo na ang ibig sabihin nun at kung ano’ng kasunod,” Sanchez added.
Sanchez, 51, and Roxas, 59, got married in Quezon City in 2009. In May, Roxas ran for president under the Liberal Party and was ranked second to Rodrigo Duterte.
Asked about the lessons learned in the 2016 national elections, Sanchez said: “Maraming leksyon pero ’yung iba siguro sa akin na lang ’yun. Pero siguro safe to say the destination is as important as the journey.”
“Siguro hindi masyadong maiintindihan ’yun ng tao kasi para sa mga tumatakbo sa isang kampanya, be-all end-all ang pagkapanalo. Pero alam mo when you don’t make it, and this has happened to us twice, you realize that you have to assess how you come out of it and what that experience, wherein you poured your heart and soul, your body, your time, has that contributed to you?” she said.
“Kawawa ka naman kung ginawa mong lahat ng iyon, namuhunan ka nang sobra-sobra, at nung hindi mo nakuha iyong premyo, ang pakiramadam mo sa sarili mo ay talunan ka o dehado ka, o sira ka na, broken,’’ Sanchez added. “But I refused to be a victim. So I think kailangan kunin mo ang lahat ng mga karanasan and realize that it was all for your betterment, and that was all for a purpose.’’
Abunda also asked her about her greatest achievement so far in the broadcast industry.
“I think giving a voice to women. I’m a 30-year-old employee of ABS CBN. We came at a time after Martial Law. Biglang nagkaroon uli ng boses ang mga mamahayag. Pagkatapos ng censorship na dalawampu’t limang taon ata ’yan, walang boses ang tao biglang narito kami – batang-bata pa ako nun;
“Beinte lang yata ako nun biglang nagkaroon ako ng mikropono para magsalita sa aking mga opinyon. Ang sabi sa akin ni Freddie Garcia noon, ‘Ang problema sa ‘yo Korina masyado kang mabait.’ Believe it or not at one point naging mabait ako. Ang binabasa ko Biblical verses sa ‘Magandang Umaga Po.’ Sabi ko I want something more provocative;
“Then he said, ‘You’re too nice.’ Sabi ko, ‘I’m not nice.’ So ‘Hoy Gising!’ was born. At ang bibig ko hindi na mapigilan.
Sabi ko, ‘Uy patok ito – babae, bata may opinyon, galit sa mundo, sinasabi sa Presidente bumaba ka sa pwesto mo. Because of that, I also gained the reputation which other people don’t understand. I think since then it’s been bumpy, it’s not easy na babae ka at may opinyon tatanggapin ’yun ng Pilipino at that time. Pero ngayon lahat ng tao may opinyon na. So I think that’s my contribution,” Sanchez said.
The Kapamilya broadcaster also gamely answered the questions during the “Fast Talk” portion of the late-night program.
Lights on lights off – Any. Hindi ako mapili.
