Last week, comedian Eugene Domingo met up with bloggers to do a Q&A portion for her upcoming movie, My House Husband: Ikaw Na. This was held at Kenny Rogers in Katipunan, Quezon City Actually in this movie she's not the main bida and said she don't mind it, since both Ryan Agoncillo and Judy Ann Santos is a very good friend of her.
When asked what is her role in this movie. "Si Anne Curtis ang peg ko dito sabi nga ni Direk! (Joey Reyes) " she said, that means she's a mistress in this movie just like Anne Curtis in a Star Cinema movie. Though, Miss Eugene Domingo looks really tired that afternoon (since we're the last one to interview her, after print and television press) she really make sure that it that we enjoyed the whole time. She would occasionally insert jokes on her answer to our questions.
I asked her what's her favorite scene in the movie, My House Husband? "Actually lahat halos, pero abangan nyo yung sinampal ako ni Juday ng bonggang-bongga! Ang sakit eh!" She said. Miss Eugene Domingo also said that she will not accept any television program that will require her a lot of time. "Mga hosting-hosting ng 30 minutes, okay lang sakin yan." she clarified.
She also cleared that she has no Twitter account but maintains a very personal Facebook account, with a different name of course.
Check out the trailer of "MY HOUSE HUSBAND":
Nothing prepared ROD (Ryan Agoncillo) and MIA ALVAREZ (Judy Ann Santos) for the major changes that took place in their lives. ROD worked as a manager of a bank while MIA opted to remain a housewife taking care of their two children — MIGO and KAYE — with an occasional sideline of selling insurance. MIA gave up her promising career in sales because ROD wanted to be the padre de familia. For ROD, it was the role of the man to provide for his wife and children … in the same manner that there was a clear cut delineation as to what are the duties of a husband from that of the wife.
But when a larger bank merged with ROD’s employer, he found himself out of work. Overqualified in a scarce job market, ROD’s pride forbade him to reveal the truth immediately to his wife. Eventually, when he could not find employment, he had to agree to take care of the house and the two kids most especially after their trusted housekeeper had to leave for an emergency vacation.
In the process, ROD learns to do the housework — as he begins to adjust to a life of domestication which he thought was unthinkable for a man like him to find interest. And as he learned the ropes in running a household, MIA’s career in selling insurance begins to blossom. MIA was surprised to find out that all the unfulfilled potential she had in her suddenly emerged for the appreciation of her bosses in the insurance company.
Trapped at home, ROD befriends their next door neighbor named AIDA (Eugene Domingo) who everybody knows is a kept woman of a rich man who would occasionally visit her and her son to spend the night. Despite the scathing opinions hurled against AIDA, ROD discovered a completely different woman — over and above all the moral charges set against her. She was simply looking for someone who could take care of her, provide her and her son a good sense of the future. More so, she was led to believe that all women were meant to be cared for by men … and, in return, the woman sacrifices everything for that sense of belonging.
"MY HOUSE HUSBAND," one of the official movie entries to the upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival 2011 (MMFF) is released by OctoArts Films. Topbilled by Judy Ann Santos, Ryan Agoncillo and Eugene Domingo; directed by Joey Reyes.
