Superstar Nora Aunor faced the media on Wednesday to promote an upcoming “Maalaala Mo Kaya” episode. In the episode, Aunor will play Yolly– a mother to five kids, with four of them having special needs. The 62-year-old actress (who turns 63 on May 21) recalled how excited she was when the offer was given to her.
“Masayang masaya po,” she said. “Hindi ako nagdalawang isip dahil gaya nga ng sinabi ko, matalagal na rin akong gusting makalabas doon sa ‘MMK,’ ditto sa Dos.”
A former Kapamilya, Aunor was asked if the “MMK” episode marks her return to the network.
“Tignan po natin kung ano ang ibibigay ng Diyos. Open lang po ako sa lahat,” she said.
Aunor said she and former ABS-CBN President and CEO Charo Santos-Concio once had a misunderstanding.
Aunor said she has apologized to Concio and Star Creatives Chief Operating Officer Malou Santos, admitting that it was her fault.
“Alam kong mga sinabi akong hindi maganda kay Ma’am Charo at saka kay Ms. Malou.
Siguro dahil lang sa nagtampo rin ako. Pero malaki ‘yong nagging kasalanan ko dahil madaldal ako eh. Hindi ko ikinatatakot ‘yon. Inaamin ko at kaya humingi ako ng tawad,” she said.
Aunor will fly to the United States in June to undergo throat surgery. This, according to her, might help her regain her singing voice.
“Gusto kong matuloy this time ang pangako ko sa sarili ko at sa mga fans. Kasi gusto ko na ring mag-concert talaga,” Nora said.•
