JUST A THOUGHT: Hap­pi­ness doesn’t de­pend on out­ward things but on the way we see them. – Leo Tol­stoy • NEW DOOR: For ev­ery fail­ure or dis­ap­point­ment, a new rain­bow of op­por­tu­ni­ties opens to cheer you up.

Heart Evan­ge­lista ad­mits los­ing a baby, her first by hus­band Sen. Fran­cis Es­cud­ero, sent her to un­fath­omable pits of de­pres­sion. “I thought I could chan­nel that sad­ness to paint­ing but I just couldn’t do it. I could never pro­duce an art work at that time.’’

Heart re­vealed this dur­ing a me­di­a­con in line with her col­lab­o­ra­tion with cloth­ing brand Kamiseta.

The vet­eran ac­tress said she gave her­self time to grieve over her loss. Not for a mo­ment did she wa­ver in her faith. Look­ing back, she now says it must have been God’s plan to save her child from fu­ture health com­pli­ca­tions.

Doc­tors had warned Heart that be­cause she was then car­ry­ing twins, the prospect of ill health af­fect­ing one or the other was in­evitable.

PAINT­INGS ON YOUR DRESS: Heart looked none the worse as she faced me­dia for the first time in a long time.

The re­cent col­lab­o­ra­tion with Kamiseta al­lows buy­ers to wear her paint­ings. Heart has al­lowed the brand to launch a cloth­ing line called Love Marie whose de­signs are based on her art works. The line in­cludes dresses, T shirts and blouses.

BACK SOON ON SERYE: Heart has not worked on a tele­serye or film. She an­nounced, how­ever, that she has just signed a new five-year con­tract with GMA. She’ll be back with a new se­ries in early 2019.

She did ac­knowl­edge that she sent an au­di­tion video to the pro­duc­ers of Crazy Rich Asians whose se­quel they are now pre­par­ing. She said she isn’t ex­pect­ing any­thing and is quite happy where she is at the mo­ment.

“I felt I just wanted to give in to my­self, not want­ing to let an opor­tu­nity pass you by. It doesn’t mat­ter whether you get in or not. The thing is,

you seized the chance.’’
