Author: Napoleon Quintos
Aside from celebrating her 22nd birthday last August 23, Nikki Gil has other reasons to be happy, like several projects she's slated to work on. She will soon appear with Coco Martin in two shows, namely Agimat: Ang mga Alamat ni Ramon Revilla Sr. presents Tonyong Bayawak and Nagsimula sa Puso.
In an interview with ABS-CBN.com, Nikki revealed that she is also gearing up for a big stage musical where she will play the lead role. "I'll be doing Legally Blonde to be produced by Atlantis. I'll play Elle Woods, 'yung character ni Reese Witherspoon. It's being staged right now sa New York and ngayon dinala dito. It will be directed by Bobby Garcia at ipapalabas sa Meralco Theater. Hindi ko pa alam kung sino 'yung ibang cast. As early as now I'm preparing na, I'm taking voice lessons. Iba-blonde din nila 'yung hair ko kaya nakakatuwa. It's a blessing that I didn't have to audition for the role. I'm very thankful."
As a happy Kapamilya, Nikki dispelled rumors that spread online claiming that she is being considered for a teleserye on another network. "Fake 'yung Facebook account na 'yun. Pero at least nabigyan ako ng publicity, thanks to the fake account, ha ha ha! But it's not true. Hindi naman nag-panic ang ABS-CBN because they knew that I just signed a contract with them. Hindi ko na hinanap kung sino 'yung gumawa ng fake account. Basta alam ko naman na hindi totoo 'yung sinabi. Hindi rin naman derogatory 'yung sinabi so hindi ako napipikon."
Nikki also reacted on the rumor that she is pregnant, something which she said was clearly created by people with nothing better to do. " Hindi nga blind item 'yun kasi talagang pinangalanan nila ako na buntis daw. Hindi talaga totoo. I don't understand why it is necessary for other people to come up with stories na wala namang pinanggalingan." She added that the issues that bother her more are rumors that question her work attitude. " Napipikon lang ako dun sa mga news and blind items na negative talaga like ' lumalaki ang ulo' o ' laging late.' Kasi 'yung mga taong gumagawa nun hindi naman alam kung ano 'yung totoo."
It seems like many are still raising eyebrows over Nikki's wholesome image and the purity ring that she wears all the time. But the actress-singer is definitely holding on to her values despite the nasty things that people say about celebrities. " Nung marinig ko 'yung chismis na buntis daw ako natawa ako kasi matapos kong pagusapan 'yung purity ring ko kaya napulaan ang ng mga tao na kesyo 'virgin-virginan' ako biglang lalabas 'yung chismis na buntis ako. Ano ba talaga, virgin o buntis? Para naman tayong naglolokohan. Suot ko pa rin 'yung purity ring ko, ha ha ha! Pero 'wag na nating ikalat masyado. Okay lang kahit walang maniwala."
Nikki's relationship with Billy Crawford also has its share of controversies. Early this year it was rumored that Billy was once married to his former choreographer Marie Courchinoux a.k.a. Maryss from Paris. The singer-dancer immediately denied that he and Maryss were married, but admitted that they lived together during the course of their relationship. Nikki said that she is not bothered by anything about Billy's past. "I have known for some time na rin naman about them. Ayaw kasi namin ni Billy na sa relationship namin e may mga skeletons in the closet. Kung ano man 'yung lihim mo ilabas mo na. Maganda 'yung alam ko na. Basta naman hindi ko nakikita sa harapan ko kung sino man 'yung past at hindi naman ako pinapakialaman it's not a problem."
