Ruffa Belies Sarah Lahbati Pregnancy Issue

MANILA, Philippines - Despite burgeoning rumors pertaining to her younger brother Richard Gutierrez having gotten controversial actress Sarah Lahbati pregnant - reason supposedly for her sudden departure to Switzerland recently - Ruffa Gutierrez insists that the rumors could not be true, otherwise they would've already talked about the matter.

"Well I don't believe anything because he hasn't told me about it. At mukhang hindi naman stressed 'yung pamilya ko eh. Di sana ay may meeting na kami," said she in an interview aired via "Umagang Kay Ganda" Thursday.

Then again, she sees nothing wrong if she is eventually proven wrong.

"If ever makabuntis siya, of course, sana hindi - 'hello 'Chard, RH Bill' - but if ever siyempre hindi natin maiwasan 'yan like one day... but if ever, it goes to show lang na he is capable of having kids and it's a blessing," she said.

It was Gutierrez's mother and manager Annabelle Rama who helped facilitate Lahbati's departure, admitting in separate interviews that she pitied the "Kokak" star. Lahbati is currently facing libel charges in local courts owing to some tweets she shared to her followers about alleged shenanigans involving several personalities from her mother station, GMA-7.

"Tinulungan ko naman, naawa naman ako, 'Dong," Rama told PEP.

"Alam mo naman ako, 'Dong, kahit hindi pa siya girlfriend ni Richard... sino pa diyan ang humihingi ng tulong kung kailangan niya ang tulong ko, tutulungan ko talaga. Nakakaawa naman, eh," she added.

Like her daughter, Rama belied reports relating to Lahbati's supposed pregnancy.

Meanwhile, the former Miss World First Princess is busying herself with her pictorial for an upcoming summer billboard.

"I wanna show people my age that you too can be sexy, you can be hot, you can look young and sporty. It doesn't mean that if you're a mom that you can look like a manang na," Gutierrez explained about the concept of the shoot.

"The last time kasi na-ban ako sa airport. Now, hopefully, pagbigyan kami. At least may makita silang maganda at sexy sa EDSA," she added.

As to her love life, the mother of two said she is now once again entertaining the idea following a sabbatical last year.

"Hindi mo puwedeng pilitin ang tao eh, kung wala ka talaga sa mood eh 'di wala. [But] ngayon its 2013 medyo nasa mood na ako so..." she affirmed.
