A Showtime Segment

If you haven’t heard Barbie’s powerful “What’s up, Madlang People?” statements, then you’re definitely missing out on hearing her unofficial “audition tape” to the It’s Showtime family. With the noontime show airing on GMA soon, we’re definitely expecting more Kapuso stars to join in on the fun of the hosts, the guests, and the audience. While Barbie has had her time as a guest hurado for the annual Magpasikat performances, she and Kim can definitely form another tandem for a new segment. Aside from the laughter that they can bring to many, Forteza herself is a quick-witted artist who can go head to head with the current hosts’ banter. 

A Teleserye Period Piece

In the past, Kim and Barbie starred in their own period pieces, namely Ikaw Lamang and Maria Clara at Ibarra, respectively. As artists who are always game to star in diverse roles, they can make a comeback to this type of project together as on-screen friends, reincarnations, or even strangers who will be working together to solve a past mystery. 

A Horror Film

During their collaboration, Forteza opened up how she is more used to the discipline of making series than films. In her roster, only a few horror or thriller movies are listed, including one with Kris Aquino that unfortunately didn’t push through. Now is definitely the time to inject this genre into her list of projects when media collaborations are more possible, and with someone like Kim who has starred in a number of horror films in the past. 

A Friendship Chick Flick

There is always room for friendship films, and we already have a glimpse of Kim and Barbie’s chemistry as on-screen partners. They can take their newfound friendship on the big screen as enemies or rivals turned friends, frenemies, or true blue friends who are willing to do anything for each other. This potential project can definitely mix their comedic antics and iconic drama moments. 

A Family Drama Project

The concept of family always hits close to home for Barbie and Kim, as the two are both family ladies at heart. Knowing the gravity of this type of bond, they can definitely bring their acting chops to this kind of material. For sure, they will give justice to their roles with their personal experience as their motivation.
