Why Did The Beautiful Actress Beth Tamayo Disappear From The Showbiz Industry? Here’s The Main Reason Why!
Back in the early 1990’s, Beth Tamayo was a very popular actress who starred in many Filipino movies such as Epimaco Velasco: NBI (1994), Damong Ligaw (1997), and A Mother’s Story (2011).
Besides being a beautiful and talented actress, Beth can also be remembered for being married to Chinese businessman Johnny Wong. Unfortunately this fairy tale marriage didn’t last.
In 2008, Beth suddenly flew and migrated to the United States of America. At first people were stunned at her sudden departure and separation from her husband on December 25, 2008.
What exactly happened to Beth Tamayo? Why did she leave in 2008? And what is she up to now? This article has your answers.
Amid the blind items and rumors that circulated in the media, it turns out that Beth left the Philippines citing financial and marital problems. She parted ways with her husband Johnny before she left the country.
The alleged rumor for the separation is that Beth was being poorly treated by her husband. Supposedly the actress had to stay at a condo just to be away from her husband. Other alleged reasons include that Johnny supposedly had a habit of going to the casino, the fact that they don’t have a child and that their quarrels often became physical.
In an 2012 interview with PEP.ph, Beth clarified that she left the country to support her ex-husband. She however did not reveal the details of her departure, or whatever her husband was involved in.
She did however say this:
“We were getting death threats na rin sa text messages.
“So, as fast as we could, we need to get tickets, ’tapos alis ka na.
“We made a decision na parang, today, ’tapos bukas aalis na kami.
“Sinabi ko sa parents ko, sa brothers ko, even yung sina Juday.
“At that time, I know gaano kasakit na aalis ka ng Pilipinas ng Pasko.”
She was also very sad that she had to leave because she couldn’t attend the wedding of her best friend, Kapamilya actress Judy Ann Santos with Ryan Agoncillo in April 28, 2009.
The interviewer asked if she was fearing for her life – which is why she’s staying over in the US. This is what she had to say:
“Hindi naman ako natatakot kasi, unang-una, wala naman akong ginawang masama.
“Nagkataon lang na tumulong lang ako sa asawa ko at that time.
“At kahit naman sino, gagawin lang din naman yung nararapat for their husband.
“May ibang papeles na with regards to mga titles of houses…halos lahat kasi yun nakapangalan sa akin at may pirma ako doon.
“But these people know, alam naman nila, and God knows, that I will stand by (this)—not a dime, wala akong nagamit sa perang yun.
“Masyado lang akong mabait, pinirmahan ko lahat yun.
“Asawa lang ako, tinulungan ko lang siya.”
When she moved to the U.S., Beth Tamayo started a new life back at the bottom. Instead of her usual acting – she took up regular jobs. Beth even became a baby-sitter for a Colombian family. The whole experience, she says, was a very humbling one.
But you fans will be happy to know that Beth is now living a normal and simple life in the USA. Currently she’s working for a New York-based investment company.
“I’m living a more normal life here.
“I work in an office, I’m an admin there.
“A whole different thing sa ginagawa ko sa Manila, but I’m happy.”
She’s very outgoing and keeps fit.
She’s even found a new love in her life.
Most importantly she hasn’t completely forgotten her life back in the Philippines because her BFF Judy Ann often visits her.
