Bugoy Cariño revealed that he and his partner EJ Laure have been online selling following the effect of the pandemic on his career.
The former child star guested in the January 13 episode of “Eat Bulaga!”. He joined the “Bawal Judgmental” segment in which he was among the online seller choices presented to comedian Arnell Ignacio.
According to Bugoy, he has been into online selling for six months. He and his girlfriend, EJ Laure, are currently selling clothes.
“And 'yung mga tinitinda ko po mga pang-basketball na shorts, tapos sa mga babae naman pang TikTok na shorts.
“Tapos mga pantulog yan, terno [at] pajamas ganun.” Bugoy said.
Moreover, the actor-dancer admitted that being a celebrity has been a big help to their business. It has helped increase his credibility as a seller, resulting in more buyers.
“Kasi tingin po nila legit ka talaga and, siyempre, 'pag binogus mo po sila ikaw 'yung masisiraan.”
Since it is his credibility that is at stake, Bugoy shared that he is very careful in what he sells to his customers.
“Ako po, especially po ako maarte po ako sa tela, kasi po lalaki ganun. So, kapag yung tela po noong T-shirt na nabili namin, pero mura naman, pero parang manipis, makati, hindi ko po pinapa-benta.”
It was during the pandemic when Bugoy and EJ decided to enter this online business. Since his shows were limited and he could no longer do television series, they had to think of a new way to earn.
Bugoy revealed that it was EJ who came up with the plan of using his reputation as a celebrity to venture into business.
Bugoy Cariño is a former child star and Hashtag member. His career started when he won the “Star Circle Kid Quest” in 2009. He joined the “Goin’ Bulilit” cast afterward. Soon, he was part of various Kapamilya television series.
Bugoy and EJ drew flak from the public last year when they revealed about their daughter, Scarlet. They previously denied the volleyball player’s pregnancy since Bugoy was only a minor at that time.
Despite the controversy, Bugoy did not shy away from social media. He kept posting photos to show how proud he is of his relationship with EJ. The two recently revealed that the negative comments they received had an impact on them too. However, now they are not affected by bashers anymore.
