This Is The Main Reason Why Wowie de Guzman Decided To Leave His Career In Showbiz! He’s Happier Than Before!
Wowie de Guzman is perhaps best known as Judy Ann Santos’ first ever loveteam partner. The two have worked on 12 films together, dominating much of the silver screen during the 1990s. Wowie isn’t just an actor. He was also a part of the popular dance group Universal Motion Dancers (UMD). Wowie’s talents have led him to be one of the Philippines’ top matinee idols during his heyday in the ’90s.
In July 2013, Wowie de Guzman married his non-showbiz girlfriend, Sheryl Ann Reyes. 2 years later, Sheryl tragically passed away two months after she gave birth to their child. Her cause of death was blamed on the medicine she took to deal with muscle pain.
Wowie sadly recounted the night of his wife’s untimely demise, saying:
“Sobrang bilis talaga, eh. Wala, hindi namin alam kung ano’ng nangyari. Wala, natutulog lang kami talaga tapos tumayo lang siya, pumunta sa CR, umihi, tapos bumalik para matulog ulit. Bago siya matulog, uminom siya, parang muscle pain reliever. Humiga siya, kasi may parang rayuma siya or arthritis. Pag higa niya, ‘yun lang, para siyang nag-choke. Tapos pagpunta ko sa kanya, nag-dilate na ‘yung mata niya, nanigas na ‘yung mga ganito niya (fingers). Tinry kong i-mouth-to-mouth. Kaya lang, wala talaga, eh.”
He also narrated how he rushed her to the hospital, where doctors tried in vain to revive his wife.
“Tinakbo namin sa ospital. Nakiusap ako sa mga nandodoon na gawin lahat, kasi everytime na pumupunta sila sa akin, sinasabi walang pintig. Nakikiusap kami na gawin niya pa, baka kasi masalba pa, baka puwede pang tumibok. Kaya lang, siguro talagang hanggang doon lang siguro. Hindi na nila nagawan ng paraan. Wala kaming magagawa.”
It has been a hard few years without his wife in his life, but Wowie de Guzman has found a reason to keep going – his daughter, Raff.
Wowie’s journey into fatherhood may have been littered with heartbreak and tragedy, but he has remained strong for his daughter. He continues to make the best of his situation as he showers his daughter with unconditional love.
