As I’ve often contended, a show and its host are as good as the guests. Today (30 Jan 2014), Ryzza Mae had the Eigenmann brothers as guests: Mark Gil and Michael de Mesa. Both were convivial and listened intently to the diminutive host, so they interacted without any empty, nay, dead air managing to get through. Mark Gil was very endearing, tucked tissue under the armhole of RM’s gown after she complained that it made her underarms itchy. MG was also the more talkative brother, regaling the host with stories about the family with Michael contributing to the repartee. Very entertaining show this morning. Mark even shared what the following finger sign means to the Eigenmann family, (here demonstrated by Derek Ramsay and RM in a photo I found in Google images): “I love you”. According to Mark, when they are about to part ways with their dad (Eddie Mesa), he’d always make that sign. Sweet. This reminds me of a Koreanovela I’m watching now: A Little Love Never Hurts. The story is of a father and his two daughters by his wife, and his son out of wedlock. All of them are adults. The son is the most demonstrative of the lot so it was to him that the father first said that if he calls out his son’s name, that’s the same as saying “I love you” to his son. Thereafter, the son shouted, “Dad, Dad, Dad” in quick succession. And sometimes they’d exchange text messages with just each other’s name/title in said message. Sweet. The son is constantly reaching out to his father and his half-siblings, so how can they resist? But they do sometimes. Photo is of the father and the son.
