Filipina actress Donita Rose and her son will soon be leaving the Philippines to migrate back to the United States (US).
She admitted in an interview with Dyan Castillejo via the Facebook page of ABS-CBN Christian Fellowship last Saturday, Aug. 8, that she’s having a hard time in the Philippines in making ends meet, especially when the coronavirus pandemic struck the country.

In preparation, Donita has sold almost all of her belongings in the Philippines.
Although there’s no job yet or any offer waiting for her there, Pep.ph reported that she also wants live closer to her family who are living there.
Donita shared that she intends to stay in San Francisco and give herself a year “to establish herself and look for a job”.
She said that her ex-husband Eric Villarama wasn’t helping her with the child support.
The actress also shared that her three years of culinary experience may help her towards her new journey back to the US.
The 45-year-old actress host returned to the country last 2015. It was in December 2016 that her petition for divorce was granted and her 12 years of marriage with Eric ended.
