Sarah Geronimo's 'Idol' Villain Wants to Concentrate on Singing
October 28, 2010, 9:55am


MANILA, Philippines — The young singer-actress who played the fiercest rival of Sarah Geronimo on the just-defunct "Idol" will now concentrate on her singing career.

Emmanuelle Vera will soon resume recording her album, which was temporarily put on hold in lieu of the kantaserye.

She refers to her stint on"Idol" as a blessing since she has always been a fan of Sarah.

“Noong nalaman ko na makakasama ko siya, I was so nervous. It was a blessing. She made us feel na hindi kami baguhan, na we’re friends talaga. That’s the best part of it,” she said.
“Idol” aired its last episode last Friday, Oct. 22, completing not the standard one season (13 weeks) but 10 weeks only. Did Emmanuelle know before hand that the soap will suffer its fate?

“Initially kasi po hindi ko alam kung ano po ang running time dapat ng teleserye. So I don’t know it was really cut short but what happened was we were taping everyday. Naging hand-to-mouth po ‘yung show. Nag-iba ‘yung storyline kasi ‘di ba po sa Pilipino hindi po ready sa light, happy teleserye. They wanted more drama," she said.

Playing Diana,who tormented Sarah’s Billie character on “Idol”, got the ire of some of the Popstar's fans. Emmanuelle felt this firsthand initially but she said everything is okay now.

“Actually, ‘yung Popsters, ‘yung mga close sa kanya (Sarah), sila ‘yung nagtayo ng fans club para sa akin, ang Emmanuellenatics .

"In the end, akala ko sila ‘yung magiging haters sa akin pero sila ‘yung naging supporters sa akin.”
