It was a long time coming, but Sir Chief (Richard Yap) and Maya (Jodi Sta. Maria) finally tied the knot today. The one-year old ‘kiligserye’ ‘Be Careful with My Heart‘ aired the long-overdue wedding Friday afternoon, and as expected, it was a trending topic on social media circuits such as Twitter, and is also expected to top the noontime ratings.
The wedding was supposed to push through in September. However Maya’s grandmother Mamang Conchita (Divina Valencia) passed away, forcing the couple to move their marriage date to November. Nevertheless, viewers continued to keep track of the growing relationship between Sir Chief and Maya, even as Sta. Maria fell ill in real life with dengue and the film version was pulled out of the Metro Manila Film Festival.
‘Be Careful with My Heart’ has been ABS-CBN‘s top-rated daytime program since its debut last July 2012, and its immediate impact on the variety show-dominated noontime slot was remarkable. The program’s ratings success also spread through social media, where viewers continue to talk about the budding relationship between Sir Chief and Maya. It was so successful that Sta. Maria and Yap were now more identified as Maya and Sir Chief outside of the show, despite their prior success as a teenage actress and commercial model, respectively.
‘Be Careful”s story isn’t about to end soon with the wedding of Sir Chief and Maya. With the program sustaining its high ratings, expect new stories and revelations as they unfold.
