RR Enriquez first became known in Philippine showbiz as a dancer at the now defunct noontime variety show, Wowowee. She later became one of the show’s hosts but though she starred in some other TV shows and couple of films, she has mostly been out of the limelight in recent years.
So, what’s RR been up to?
It turns out that RR has been busy outside showbiz, having been building a skincare business with PBA Barangay Ginebra Kings point guard Jayjay Helterbrand, her boyfriend.
RR opened ReJuva Skin Care and Nail Spa with Jayjay in September 2012.
At the time, PEP asked RR how her boyfriend feels about the business, knowing it caters to women.
“He has to kasi wala akong pera, kailangan niyang magbigay ng pera!” RR jokingly replied.
But RR admitted that Jayjay did have his reservations about the beauty shop.
“Una, siyempre, hesitant siya. Sabi niya gano’n, ‘malulugi ka diyan, ma-ano ang pera mo.’
Then after that sabi ko, ‘Babe, dito tayo yayaman. Trust me, yayaman ka sa akin,’ sabi kong gano’n.”
Although RR said those in jest, she made good of her promise. Today, the business is booming and is known as a one-stop beautification center located at Timog Avenue in Quezon City.
RR describes herself as a ‘hands-on’ owner. While she’s the CEO of ReJuva Skin Care and Nail Spa, she trained alongside the staff to ensure she’s aware of the services they offer. Aside from knowing what to do with the spa services they offer, RR is also the salon’s number client – making her a walking, talking advertisement for her own skincare business.
Despite the success she’s enjoying in the business, RR remains humble.
Minsan nga ako pa naglilinis dito, e. Totoo, totoo, minsan tinutulungan ko ‘yong mga workers ko. At least alam nila na ako, mahal ko ‘tong place na ‘to, inaalagaan ko ‘to, masipag ako.
Pinapakita ko sa kanila na kahit amo ako, hindi ako ‘yong magpapakataas sa kanila, di ba?
It’s wonderful to see how far RR has gone from her Wowowee dancer days but it’s more heartwarming to learn that she remains humble despite the success she’s now enjoying… Keep it up, RR!
