The series will be also a reunion for showbiz idols from the ’80s Manilyn Reynes, Sheryl Cruz, Tina Paner, and Keempee de Leon. Manilyn is Amelia, the twin sister of Suzy (Tina). Sheryl plays Beatriz (Ivan’s mom) and Keempee De Leon portrays Wilton, Amelia’s husband.

Aside from being busy with her showbiz commitments, the 19-year-old Barbie is currently a freshman taking up Psychology at the University of Perpetual Help System in Biñan, Laguna.
