This viral story of how an ‘award-winning’ Pinay actress Princess Punzalan found her own ‘safe haven’ outside of the showbiz industry is currently making its rounds on the internet.
Princess has started her young career as a co-host in a musical variety show of GMA 7 during 80’s and launcher her very ‘own’ TV drama anthology named “Princess”. She became known in the industry for portraying roles on Mula sa Puso, Kung Mawawala Ka, and Pangako Sa’yo. Princess is the only daughter of late Orly Punzalan (which is a renowned broadcaster and a former IBC President) and late host/actress Helen Vela. Punzalan was said to be previously married to the ‘controversial’ TV host, actor and singer Willie Revillame.
According to the news article published by Trending News Portal, Princess Punzalan shared the life she had after leaving showbiz in an interview for a TV Show Tunay na Buhay hosted by Rhea Santos. She said she has experienced working in an American restaurant and that she became a ‘registered’ nurse in the States. Unlike the major character roles that she played on TV and films, Princess in real life is indeed a loving and caring person which is why she decided to be a medical worker.
“Maawain kasi akong tao, so second nature na sa akin ang maging maalaga. Kung meron akong magawa para makatulong, gagawin ko,” she said during the interview.
And just for the information of our readers, she went back to the Philippines to take a vacation with her American husband and 1-year old daughter. She also narrated her inspiring story about her life being a loving wife and caring mother.
“Nung na-meet ko si Jay, I felt na it was right and I felt na we were a good match and I saw that we were headed towards the same direction,” Princess narrated.
“Nakita ko kung gaano ka-fulfilling maging nanay. Kais binigyan ka ng opportunity ng Diyos na magkaroon ng part sa buhay ng isang tao. When she kisses me, nagme-melt talaga ang heart ko. Ibang klase talaga,” she even added.
“Hindi mo pwedeng i-box ang sarili mo. There’s so much fear of being a failure na parang nalilimitahan ka na sa pwede mong gawin. There’s always hope. There’s always a second chance. Just persevere. Kung anoman ang mahirap na circumstance na pinagdadaanan mo, malalampasan mo ‘yan,”
