Rufa Mae Quinto rose to fame because of her comedic roles, but she recently tried a different acting style when she appeared in a dramatic episode of ABS-CBN’s “Ipaglaban Mo.” The episode featured heavy scenes, contradictory to what viewers normally see from her.
“It’s the best experience siyempre kasi ako po ay pinagdrama tapos ‘yung character na pinili para sa akin sa Ipinaglaban Mo is todo talaga,” Rufa told PUSH.
However, being part of the show led to rumors that she is moving to the Kapamilya network. Quinto has been known as a Kapuso for many years. She is most famous for being part of the evening long-running gag show, “Bubble Gang” which airs every Friday.
It was the actress’ first role in a TV show since she gave birth to her baby girl, Athena.

“Sa ngayon I’m here so let’s put it that way. Siyempre Kapamilya rin ako dahil dito ako nakikita, di ba? So ‘yun na muna. Pero siyempre galing naman ako sa Kapuso pa rin. So I will never forget that, that I was a Kapuso for a long time. But sa ngayon I am a freelancer kasi nga ang asawa ko taga-America so nag-migrate na kami doon. Pero ngayon dahil may offer dito sa Kapamilya so nandito ako ngayon,” the comedienne-actress shared.
Later, she revealed that she has to fly to the States where her husband resides. Rufa Mae said that she is only in the country due to her projects.
“Kasi green card holder na ako, aayusin ko na so siyempre kailangan ko na mag-stay doon pero uuwi pa rin ako dito for projects. Kasi siyempre obligayson ko na rin sa sarili ko, sa anak ko, dahil gusto ko maging proud siya na mama niya artista, alam mo ‘yun? Magiging mabuti kang example,” the first time mother said.

In addition, she admitted that it is less stressful to take care of her daughter in the Philippines as her relatives are the ones who are helping her because her husband is against getting a nanny.
“In fairness naman okay lang kahit ako na yaya ng anak ko okay lang kasi nakikilala ko siya eh, ‘yung anak mo. Tsaka pag meron ka namang sistema at kilala mo ang anak mo mabilis at tsaka mabait siya,” Quinto stated.
