Rufa Mae Quinto: Happiness to the highest level

Just because she’s been in the business for 14 years doesn’t mean Rufa Mae Quinto has grown immune to intrigues.

She has laughed off the others, like those involving her past relationships and her tiff with Jessa Zaragoza.

But sometimes, the talks get too nasty she cries “ouch!.” One such time was when someone accused her of receiving a black Range Rover worth almost P7-M from a rich politician.

“I’ve let other things go,” she reacts. “But this one hurts. No, I don’t have a sugar Daddy. I have enough projects that keep me busy and allow me to buy things I want. That’s why I’m working so hard to bring happiness to others.”

What makes it harder is the fact that Rufa Mae’s family is suffering, too.

“I can take anything they throw at me. But not my family. My 83-year-old grandmother is sick,” she goes on.

All that hard work, Rufa Mae adds, is paying off, not because she has a sugar Daddy, but because she wants to lighten people’s burdens by making them smile and laugh at her antics.

That’s why her TV shows, Dyesebel, S.O.P., Showbiz Central and Bubble Gang (GMA-7) are doing well. Endorsements keep on coming.

The Backroom artist has also teamed up with Pin Antonio in the hair extension business. Her clients include friends like Anne Curtis, Angel Locsin, Mariel Rodriguez and Rochelle Pangilinan.

On the movie front, Rufa Mae will soon star in the Viva film Civil Status: Single. With her hands so full with work, Rufa Mae can’t understand why some people still think she needs a sugar Daddy to get her dream car, which proudly bears her initials – RMQ – on the plate number.

Besides, there’s still a lot left over for the family. Rufa Mae has sent her siblings – plus nephews, nieces and cousins – to college. Her mother Fe reports that her dutiful daughter gave her P100,000 out of the blue.

Rufa Mae also wants dear mom to look as glamorous as she does. So she (Rufa Mae) sent mommy Fe to the parlor to have her nails done in flaming red. Yes, mother and daughter have patched up their differences. And Mommy Fe sang Rufa Mae’s praises at her dutiful daughter’s recent presscon.

The similarity in mother and daughter’s singsong style of talking is so striking the press people present can’t help but notice. “My mother is even funnier than I am,” Rufa Mae reacts. Does mommy Fe feel Rufa Mae’s reported boyfriend, American-Mexican Bobby Lopez, is good enough for her daughter? Her answer: No complaints, so far.

The three-month long-distance relationship is just what someone as driven as Rufa Mae needs to balance her time between work and play.

Since Bobby works in Hong Kong, he can only visit Rufa Mae on special occasions, like the recent red carpet premiere of her movie, I.T.A.L.Y.

It doesn’t matter if it’s Manila or Hong Kong. The important thing is Rufa Mae spends quality time with her man, whom she lovingly describes as sweet and gentle.

But Rufa Mae is not ready to take the plunge yet and cut her career short.

“Of course I want to get married,” she admits. “But I have to take care of my siblings first. Only two of them are still in school.

For now, she must put their needs above her own. But once they’re through with school, Rufa Mae plans to take care of her needs, among them a family she can call her very own.

So it’s on with the show, the fun and the laughter. “I want everybody to be happy to the highest level. That’s why I do my best at work,” says Rufa Mae.
Todo na ‘to? You bet!
