Controversial actress Katrina Halili may have been knocked down by the toughest of life's tribulations -- much worse than any situation a woman her age could possibly be in -- but she managed to get back on her feet. Today, she has moved beyond the hauntings of her sex video scandal and is determined to regain everything she had lost: career, dignity and her personal sense of purpose.
For the very first time, Katrina, will bare her life's story this Saturday in a very special episode of GMA's drama anthology program, "Magpakailanman," hosted by veteran journalist Mel Tiangco.
What's more interesting is that Katrina and her boyfriend Kris Lawrence will be portraying themselves in the said episode. Also starring is their baby girl Katrence who will appear in the latter part of the story.
Although the episode will inevitably touch on the very sensitive sex video issue, it won't dwell on that. Katrina's relationship with her family -- especially with her grandmother -- and her romance with Kris is expected to take a bigger chunk of the episode.
Also starring are Anita Linda, who portrays Katrina's grandmother who passed away during the times when Katrina was in the midst of the controversy, Allan Paule and Timi Cruz (as Katrina's parents) and Marky Lopez (as Katrina's assistant).
The episode is directed by Gina Alajar, who also helmed the previous week's episode starring Joyce Ching and Ehra Madrigal. The said episode entitled "Pakawalang Anghel" won in nationwide TV ratings against ABS-CBN's "Maaalaala Mo Kaya (MMK)" based on Nielsen's overnight household ratings data. "Magpakailanman" scored an average or 23% while "MMK" only garnered 19.1%. "Magpakailanman's" lead was even wider in Urban Luzon where it scored 25.8% against MMK's 16%.
Don't miss "Ligaw na Diyosa: The Katrina Halili Story" this Saturday (January 26) in "Magpakailanman" after "Kap's Amazing Stories" on GMA-7.
