Sheryn: I thank the Lord for giving me a quiet and contented life
FUNFARE UPDATE - Ricky Lo (The Philippine Star) - June 2, 2014 - 12:00am

What Sheryn Regis described as “a quiet and contented life” was presumably a bit shaken by a nasty rumor linking her to a businesswoman who claimed in a PEP story that she had an affair with Sheryn that started in 2005 when, the businesswoman claimed, “nanligaw siya sa akin” and led to an MU (Mutual Understanding) relationship until 2010, strengthened in 2011 when they began to be “officially” partners but, she claimed, their relationship went sour when Sheryn stopped seeing or “making her presence felt” (hindi na nagpaparamdam). She felt that Sheryn was having an affair with another woman. She clarified, “Hindi ako tomboy,” adding that Sheryn is one.

Sheryn is married with one child, and so is the businesswoman (who said that when she met Sheryn, she was separated from her husband with whom she reconciled “dahil sa nangyaring ito.” According to the PEP story, the businesswoman goes to the US on business trips and when she learned that Sheryn was here, she rushed from the US to sort things out with Sheryn.

A native of Cebu, Sheryn finished runner-up to Erik Santos in the 2003 edition of the ABS-CBN talent search Star in a Million. She and her husband Earl Echiverri  migrated to the US with their child four years ago and settled in Houston, Texas. She often comes to visit her folks.

Annabelle Regalado-Borja, Sheryn’s manager, told Funfare that Sheryn arrived for her usual vacation last January and left on May 26. Annabelle sent Funfare a copy of Sheryn’s official statement which Sheryn sent her upon her arrival in Houston. Here it is, unedited:

I would have chosen to ignore and keep silent about this unbelievable issue but I do have a family and I believe I have to be fair to them. To start with, everyone knew how I began in the industry, followed my career until I decided to migrate in the United States in 2010 to concentrate with my own family. I am very fortunate enough to have a loving husband and blessed enough to have a wonderful daughter  I don’t have any regrets and I will continue to be thankful to the Lord for giving me such a quiet and contented life.

Alam ko sa puso ko kung ano ang responsibilidad ko bilang isang ina sa pagpapalaki ng aking nag-iisang anak. Tinanggap ko maging katuwang ng aking asawa sa paghahanapbuhay. For the record, Tito Earl has a job in the US until now, contrary to the allegations that he is jobless. 

Moreover, I am proud to say na hindi ako nakakalimot sa aking responsibilidad bilang anak. I started going back to the Philippines since 2012 to be with my parents and spend my vacation. I am very blessed because whenever I’m in the country, I still receive bookings and attend various guestings and for this I am truly grateful for the fans and for those who supported me from the very start. Whatever I learned from those projects, lahat pinaghirapan.

It is not my personality to get what I want at the expense of other people. I do not “use” people nor will I allow myself to be used. Hindi ako pinalaki ng magulang ko para manira, manggamit at manloko ng ibang tao.

As regards to the gossips about me, this is all I can say, as we all know, being part of this entertainment industry would subject us to all kinds of defamatory issues. I cannot please everybody. There are people who think they know you and say whatever they want. Some would misinterpret my kindness, some would even assume.

Once and all, I am issuing this public statement to protect my reputation as well as of my family.

Whatever the intentions are for doing these will be given justice by the people who would either believe it or not. 

What matters is, for as long as I have the love of my family, my genuine friends and the support of my fans who truly know me by heart, I will remain strong, deeply grateful, and completely satisfied. — Sheryn Regis, Houston Texas, USA.
