Angel Locsin Shares How She Became a More Effective ‘Legal Wife’

Before she became primetime television's 'Legal Wife,' award-winning actress Angel Locsin prepared for her role as Monica by talking to women with cheating husbands, as well as to men who left their wives for another woman.

“I spoke to women who have the same story as my character, to married men who have had extramarital affairs, and to mistresses,” Angel shares with Anthony Taberna in “Tapatan Ni Tunying” airing this Thursday (March 6).

As an advocate of “Gabriela,” an organization that advocates women and children’s issues, Angel has mingled with and talked to wives who suffered from domestic disputes and violence even before she began working on the said drama series.

“Every time I join counseling, I know that I am not in the right place to judge and give advice. I’m there to support and empower them as women, and also to learn from their stories,” she explains.

For Angel, her counseling experiences have helped her not only in effectively portraying her television roles, but also in expanding her understanding of women’s issues.

While Angel advocates women empowerment, political activist Mae Paner, also known as Juana Change, calls for radical change in Philippine politics.

“I think every Filipino should learn how to volunteer. They should also know what’s happening,” Mae says. “People have to learn to receive criticism,” she adds, insinuating President Noynoy Aquino’s perceived hypersensitivity to negative remarks on his administration.

Mae also fires back at her detractors, who claim she hasn’t done anything worthwhile for her fellow Filipinos aside from appearing and speaking at rallies.

“We have this project called Yakap, wherein I adopted 21 Yolanda survivors and let them stay in my house. I treated them like they were family,” she shares.

She adds, “To those who have criticized me and asked what I’ve done for the victims of Yolanda, my answer is, ‘Excuse me!’”

Don’t miss “Tapatan ni Tunying” (TNT) in the first Thursday (March 6) of International Women’s Month, 4:45 PM on ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Gold. For updates, follow @TNTunying on Twitter or like its Facebook page www.facebook.com/TNTunying.

  19. the legal fan // March 6, 2014 at 1:02 pm //

    @rhodora X: wow, nahiya naman aq sa english mo. No matter what negative comment u had about angel, it can never change our admiration to her. She had the heart to the poor, to the needy, specially to the victims of calamities. Whats more amazing about it is that she’s doing it privately, trying to hide from the media and I believe that is the true essence of philantrophy. Hindi katulad nang mga ini-idolo mo na pag nagbigay nang mga relief goods ay pakuha agad nang picture.
    Alam q inggit ka lang kaya lageh kang naninira kay angel.. Ure so pathetic!!.

  20. Ano ba yan Rhodorah X until now bitter ka pa rin, lol! Ang haba naman ng sinabi mo. Moved on ka na 2014 na lol!

  21. Rhodora X // March 6, 2014 at 12:16 pm //

    You can always guess but never hit it right in the head what ‘gimmick’ she has in her mind to be in the limelight once more, a place she once ruled when she was still in GMA-7..

    Recently, she made a sick ‘U-Turn’ when she announced that she and Luis Manzano are back in each other’s arms! We can’t help but feel disgusted knowing she once said in an interview ‘AKO YUNG BABAENG HINDI BINABALIKAN UNG EX,’ a promise she easily broke just to satisfy her sick pleasure!

    Angel, you have already lost the ‘star appeal’ you once had, and your popularity continues to dwindle. The people abhor the news trash you’ve giving to people, we abhor your LIES!

    You’re the one and only ‘THE LEGAL LIAR!’ Hope your ‘BLIND FOLLOWERS’ will finally see the light!

  22. Sarap maging KAPAMILYA…super galing mga artista like Ms. Angel Locsin…

    Tapos ung eksena kgbi sa G2B sa confrontation ni carmina at daniel napakahusay lalo na si JULIANA…wow na wow!panigurado pti kanguso tumutok kgabi at napa NGANGA!

    Proud to be KAPAMILYA.

  23. PROUD of YOU MS. ANGEL LOCSIN!! CONGRATS FOR THE LEGAL WIFE, BOTH KANTAR AND AGB PANALO SA RATINGS FOR THE MONTH OF FEB.

  24. Nakakahiya naman sa comment mo! Malandi man, award winning actress at box office star naman. Eh ikaw at ang idol mo? Hahahaha

  25. illegal wife // March 6, 2014 at 11:07 am //

    kala mo kung sino.. landi naman..

  26. NakakaPROUD basahin..”award winning actress Angel Locsin”… Labas na mga bitter fans ng isang Primetime Queen & Flopsina Sexy Star! Hahahaha
