True-to-life stories from Rhea Santos

GMA 7’s Tunay na Buhay, a 30-minute profile magazine program features compelling stories of people. It premieres tonight after Saksi.

Hosted by Rhea Santos, Tunay na Buhay goes beyond biographies by searching far and wide for the most riveting life stories. These are stories of people who have gone through some of the most unforgettable, amazing experiences, life events that are sometimes beyond belief but are always engaging and thought-provoking.

“Tunay na Buhay is different because our subjects are the storytellers themselves,” Rhea says. “They will share their lives and the lessons they have learned that will make us appreciate life more. These are life stories that will make us cry, or will make us smile. Or maybe both. And this is really our show because each of us has a story to tell.”

The program will feature three stories each episode, each with a different feel or tone. “For me, it’s important that I connect with my interview subjects,” Rhea says. “I have to share their laughter, feel their pain and, in a small way, be part of their dreams.”

For its pilot episode, Tunay na Buhay tells the inspiring love story of Wawel and Mila who have been married for 15 years despite Mila’s condition. After their wedding day, tragedy struck, and from then on, Mila has been wheelchair bound.

The next story is about a mother’s unconditional love for her children, twins who are conjoined at the head.

These two kids share one body but they have very different personalities.

There is the story of success of a multi-millionaire at the age of 26. This man was only 20 years old when he earned his first millions. What could be the secret to his success?

“Tunay na Buhay will touch the hearts of viewers by presenting real stories of everyday people. These are stories that will inspire, amaze and will make you aspire to live life more,” Rhea adds.
