Raymond, Richard, Ruffa: Politics? What Politics?

The Gutierrez family has no intention of getting involved in the May 2010 polls.

Before Raymond Gutierrez left for the United States to oversee auditions there for the upcoming Starstruck Batch Five, we got the chance to chat with him. While the topics mostly revolved around his Starstruck hosting stint, politics cropped up in the discussion when his sister Ruffa Gutierrez was mentioned. Ruffa recently announced that she is supporting Noynoy Aquino’s bid for presidency, and he happens to be the brother of her The Buzz co-host Kris Aquino.

Meanwhile, it is no secret that their parents, Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama, are close friends of former President Joseph Estrada, who also recently announced his intention to run—for the second time—for the highest position in the country.

According to Raymond, everyone in his family has the freedom to choose whom he or she will vote for. As for him, he says he has to listen to everyone’s platform first, and then he’ll decide whom to cast his vote for—the first time he’ll be doing so. Raymond and his twin brother Richard Gutierrez recently got their dual citizenship, and Raymond just recently registered at the COMELEC.

As for running for any post, he says no member of the Gutierrez family is inclined to do so. Years ago, their father Eddie ran and lost, and this served as a lesson for all of them.

Incidentally, Raymond says he is very excited for his upcoming US trip, since aside from work, he will also get the chance to reconnect with old friends in California, where he and Richard finished high school.
