Are you in love with your officemate – or worse – your boss? Then you have a potentially big problem. But don’t worry, comedian and TV host Ramon Bautista might have a solution to your predicament.
After his “Tales from the Friend Zone” video series became popular on video sharing website, YouTube, Bautista recently released a new video series tackling a different relationship issue.
While the first series dealt with problems that occur when courtship goes south and ends in an awkward state of being “just friends” or “friend zone,” the new web series deals with the woes of office romances.
Titled “Office Romance Tips with Ramon Bautista,” the series features dramatized experiences of people caught in the complicated web of office love affairs. Of course, every episode won’t be complete without Bautista’s hilarious pieces of advice.
What’s most interesting about this four-episode series is the topic itself, which is a “no-no” in many companies especially when the people involved are superiors and their subordinates. It is even considered taboo in conservative companies and could jeopardize the jobs of the employees involved.
The video series is available for everyone’s viewing pleasure at GMA Network’s official YouTube page, www.youtube.com/GMANetwork.
Speaking of illicit office romances, GMA Films is coming up with a romance-comedy (romcom) film about this controversial subject. The film, entitled “My Lady Boss” is top billed by Kapuso Royalties Richard Gutierrez and Marian Rivera and is scheduled to hit theatres this April.
In the movie, Richard and Marian’s characters defy corporate policies by falling in love with each other (Marian plays Richard’s boss). Eventually, the two will face the bitter truth of having to choose between their careers and their affair, aside from the fact that they also have to deal with the uncomfortable feeling of being the topic of every office gossip.
Will they choose love over their jobs or will they use their heads instead of their hearts?
Find out the answer when “My Lady Boss” hits nationwide theatres on April 10.
