The public has known comedienne Ethyl Gabison as “Ethel Booba,” a screen name that plays around puns referring to her sexy figure and the dumb persona she projects. But she says the latter is just a character she portrays in comedy bars. “Kailangan magbobo-bobohan. Ang hirap!” she tells Boy Abunda.
Ethel shows her romantic side as she talks about boyfriend Jessie Salazar whom she believes is ‘the one’ for her. She even hints at her excitement to settle down. Ethel describes their long distance relationship as “going strong” albeit, it requires solid amount of trust and prayers.
“siya na talaga”: Ethel, confident na sinabing si Jessie na talaga ang kanyang panghabangbuhay
Ethel shares an instance when Jessie made a scene upon seeing her mingling with Vice Ganda’s male friends after work. Ethel opted to spend the night in the comedy bar to avoid being with her beau. Later, Ethel found out that Jessie followed her at a taping in ABS-CBN to apologize. In what seemed like a test of sincerity, Ethel demanded Jessie to kneel down first before they finally kiss and make up.
In a game called “Truth or Charot,” Ethel says she never goes home defeated in a singing contest. She also denies rumors of having distaste towards Roxanne Barcelo, her fellow TNT celebrity contestant.
