It isn’t going to make a difference if she seems to be far more like Whitney the singer than Tyson the boxer — or the other way around — but the simple fact stays that Whitney Tyson is a single genius of a comedienne.
But if she’s received the reward to make her audience snicker, how arrive acting positions appear handful of and much involving?
Continue to etched in my thoughts is “Startalk’s” characteristic on Whitney several several years in the past and the type of life she experienced. Whitney made use of to dwell in a barely livable shanty less than a bridge in Manila. She had discovered to stay with the cacophony of blaring horns from passing vehicles overhead.
If that was not adequate of an city ordeal, there was the metropolis government’s demolition staff to contend with. Inadequate Whitney. Left with no option, she had to start out correcting her lifestyle. And make a superior just one at that.
Showbiz was not particularly unwelcoming to her. Prior to the pandemic, she had a quite fantastic life. She got herself a modest residence with out anxiety of currently being thrown on to the streets. Accustomed to a lifestyle meant for the a lot less privileged, the simple food stuff she ate (not on the desk but wherever at house) meant a feast.
Indoor eating turned even a lot more festive when Whitney received a part in “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.” Her final appearance, though, was in August 2022.
As the family’s breadwinner, Whitney recounts having squirreled away dollars through her stint in Coco Martin’s teleserye. But whatever she had saved up was slowly getting depleted owing to being jobless for additional than a calendar year.
“Of program, I had to acquire food stuff, fork out the utility expenses. Does anybody feel that the revenue I was ready to preserve would last if I failed to have a position this extensive?” a somewhat sentimental Whitney laments in the vernacular.
Listening to her story, it can be obvious that Whitney a little bit retains some resentment towards Coco. As a substitute of stating she had supposed to reapply for a element in the actor’s “Batang Quiapo,”
She explained, “He understands pretty properly that I am the breadwinner in the family members. And if at any time I’m integrated in the cast, then retitling it ‘Batang Gapo’ sounds better!”
Desperately in have to have of a perfectly-spending occupation, Whitney just isn’t, just after all, deprived of help from earlier mentioned. Thanks to Ara Mina and her benevolence. Lately, it is Ara who’s browsing for possibilities for Whitney to survive.
“She’s the a person hunting for ‘raket’ for me. She’s also bringing me alongside to her ‘Magandang ARAw’ tapings on Web25,” Whitney shares.
The comedienne’s happy mention of the Television set host-actress’s title will come as no shock, nor do her functions of charity. I also wouldn’t be shocked if Ara’s partner, Dave Almarinez, has experienced an influence on her generosity.
Under no circumstances brain if a thousand Whitney Tysons preserve coming, as long as you can find Ara Mina with a heart vast enough to accommodate them all.
