It all started with her participation in GMA-7’s Survivor Philippines: Celebrity Showdown. She was a relative unknown (aside from being tagged as the ex of actor Derek Ramsay and a one-time host of Party Pilipinas) when the reality program started airing months ago. She gradually increased her popularity meter as each week passed. By the time she made it to the Live Finale and the Top 3, Solenn Heussaff is already a household name who is being romantically linked to actor Richard Gutierrez. She may have not won the P3M top prize (Akihiro Sato did), but she is definitely reaping a lot more than that (including the host).
Solenn is now a true-blue Regal baby after she was signed by Mother Lily Monteverde for a multi-picture deal, including one of the lead roles in the remake of the 80s cult classic “Temptation Island.” She is also well on her way to becoming a recording artist when MCA Universal signed her up for a recording deal that should put into full use her beautiful vocals (a blend of jazzy and laid-back sound that sounds so relaxing). On TV, she is now being co-managed (with her original manager Leo Dominguez) by GMA Artist Center and will become one of the leading ladies in the nth resurgence of Captain Barbell. And if that’s not enough, she will star with Richard Gutierrez (again) in a Valentine’s Day trilogy flick. And all throughout, she claims that the two of them are just good friends hanging out (not for long, I reckon).
Now you would think that she has her hands full. Well, think again. She is also an artist. She paints. During the lull before the culmination of Survivor Philippines, she continued with her art works while promoting the show around the Philippines. If memory serves me right, she is finalizing details for her first art exhibit in a month or two.
Let’s hope she can equally juggle all things, maintain a gorgeous face and whistle-bait figure and keep her feet on the ground when her rise to fame becomes inevitable by 2011.
