|‘Babaeng Hampaslupa’ marked Alice Dixson’s return to television after many years of living in Vancouver|
“After we lived abroad for a long time, na kami lang dalawa, nasanay na kami. It wasn’t really a prayer to us anymore," the actress told PEP in an interview posted on Oct. 12.
Alice clarified that they “did both want kids right away” during the early years of their marriage, and that “It’s not like I can’t have kids. I can have kids.”
“We decided eventually that we didn’t want to have kids and we’re happy just the two of us… A lot of people don’t really get that’s the way we want,” the actress intimated.
Meanwhile, Alice debunked persistent rumors that she and Ronnie have already separated.
“Physically, hiwalay kami. He’s there [sa Canada], nandito ako,” Alice said.
Alice and Ronnie have been based in Vancouver, Canada for more than 10 years, with the former occasionally flying back to Manila for showbiz commitments. Because of this, the couple had often found themselves the subject of separation rumors.
According to PEP, this particular gossip started when Alice went back to the Philippines to film her first TV5 primetime series, “Babaeng Hampaslupa” in January this year.
“Siguro para may mapag-usapan [kaya lumabas yung tsismis]. But it’s not true,” the actress added.
To prove her point, Alice related that she went back to Vancouver after "Hampaslupa" and only got back recently to film her second TV5 teleserye, the upcoming “Glamorosa.”
Because of “Glamorosa,” Alice said she wasn’t able to stay for the launch of Ronnie’s company Gigapixel.com and its“first gigapixel camera, a 360-degree camera that goes underneath the scoreboard.”
“It’s hard. Like, I love to see his achievements. I’m really proud of him. Parang I wish I can be there,” she said.
Alice also said that jealousy is a non-issue between them.
“Respetuhan lang,” Alice expressed, adding that Ronnie wouldn’t have allowed her to work miles from home if they don’t trust each other.
Like perhaps most women, Alice admitted to being jealous when it comes to Ronnie but maintains that she trusts him.
“Hindi mo naman mako-control ang isang tao, right? But I trust him. What he does with that trust, it’s up to him," she said.
More, the actress said that both she and Ronnie do not dictate one another on what to do when it comes to their respective lines of work.
“Sometimes he asks me about, let’s say, his business and I give my two cents, [but] only if he asks me,” she told PEP.
