TV host and actress Gelli de Belen may just be the busiest talent of TV5. She is part of the network’s new weekly sitcom Misterless Misis, the gag show Tropa Mo Ko Unli Spoof, and one of the hosts of the Sunday noontime show, Happy Truck ng Bayan.
Only this month, she has also been announced as a permanent host in the all-women’s talk show Happy Wife, Happy Life, alongside Danica Sotto-Pingris and LJ Moreno-Alapag, after pinch-hitting for Mariel Rodriguez who is on extended leave because of her unfortunate miscarriage.
Asked how she is able to cope with such a busy work schedule on top of being a wife to Ariel Rivera and mom to sons Julio and Joaquin, the energetic multi-tasker quickly gave credit to her singer-actor husband.
“Katuwang ko talaga ang asawa ko sa lahat ng bagay,” she explained. “Kung hindi ko magagawa, alam ko gagawain niya para sa akin . . . We’re always in contact through the day—mula sa pag-confirm kung nasundo na ng driver ang mga bata hanggang sa lahat ng bagay. That’s why I’m so lucky I’m able to do this because of the support of my husband.”
These are more are the insights, which Gelli openly brings to third season of Happy Wife, Happy Life, which weekday mornings on TV5 at 10:15.
