Actress Camille Prats can be said to have undergone a showbiz career that mirrors the legendary Star for All Seasons, Vilma Santos. She too started young as a talent in ABS-CBN’s one-time youth comedy variety show “Ang TV,” then became a child star by being a live-action “Princess Sarah” in 1995. She then transitioned to teen roles and finally grown-up ones in films and TV series on the two major networks. Most recently she channeled her experience in motherhood to play host Mom C in GMA7’s edutainment show “Makulay Ang Buhay,” which aired in 2020. With a second season produced and ready to premiere soon, Camille cannot contain her excitement.
The Manila Bulletin has it that Camille Prats will once again entertain and educate young Kapuso viewers as Mom C on the second season of “Makulay Ang Buhay” which will begin this coming weekend. Now aged 36, the actress and mother of three has held fond memories of when she hosted the inaugural season that premiered last year, describing it as an unforgettable experience especially as it was shot when Philippine studios were still getting used to produce content during the pandemic and strict protocols.
“I am truly grateful to be part of a program that is not only informative but also teaches Filipino children about the benefits of eating healthy,” notes Prats of “Makulay Ang Buhay,” which as the title implies is also co-sponsored by Knorr Philippines. “Children will always have a special place in my heart, being part of a project that teaches our kids to better take care of themselves is really something I am grateful for.”
“Makulay Ang Buhay” has Camille Prats/Mom C and her puppet companions Benjie and Penpen sing and dance in music videos, tells stories, play games, and demonstrate cooking “Nutri-Sarap” recipes while teaching children about the positive benefits of healthy eating, particularly of vegetables (when made tastier by Knorr products), as well as the effects of various everyday things on one’s health. The show on its second season airs twice a week on mornings, on Saturday starting August 21 and on Tuesdays.
