Before Donny Pangilinan: There is Anthony and Maricel

“ITO ang talagang usapang kaibigan,” Korina Interviews host Korina Sanchez-Roxas declares.

“Alam ninyo bang ako ang naka-discover kay Anthony?”

Korina recruited Anthony in the 90’s to be one of her co-hosts on the morning show Magandang Umaga Po in ABS-CBN.


And since marrying actress Maricel Laxa, Korina often consulted him about managing her staff as both Anthony and Maricel later became inspirational and motivational speakers, authors, and management consultants.

“Looking at how Maricel and Anthony managed their own lives, their marriage, pati ang pagpapalaki nila sa mga anak nila, wow… there’s a lot to talk about,” Korina says.

Korina says anyone who wants to learn about keeping a marriage together, raising five children and motivating them to excellence and individuality, and about managing one’s life should watch this episode.


“Siyempre hindi mawawala ang kilig factor sa love story nina Anthony and Maricel.”

”He was to be just my next victim. Today tinitingnan ko si Anthony and I tell myself, I'm still in love with this guy,” says a gushing Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan while giggling.

“The most important thing you can teach your child is to value himself or herself. Kapag alam ng bata ang kahalagahan niya, lahat na ng tagumpay kasunod na,” says Anthony.

The Pangilinans are parents to Ella who is soon to wed; Benjamin a champion athlete and songwriter; Donny a star influencer, actor, and businessman; Hannah a motivational and training coach; and Solana the youngest at 13 who read 400 books during the pandemic.

Anthony and Maricel are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary with Korina Interviews on Net 25 this Sunday at 5 pm after the romantic comedy Goodwill.
