Actress Lorna Tolentino, a widow at 55, is still beautiful and continues to attract men.


But while the actress, who looks much younger than her age, has admitted that some men are courting her, she is not ready for a relationship.


Meanwhile, the widow of actor Rudy Fernandez revealed her secret serious ailment during a dinner with the media Lorna Tolentino and son Ralph Fernandez, hosted by Mother Lily, at Gloria Maris.


“The doctor discovered sobrang bilis ng heart rate ko,” she was quoted as saying by columnist Mario Bautista during the dinner meeting.


. “I have atrial tachycardia and if not treated, puwedeng bigla na lang akong magka-heart attack,” the comely actress said.


“ So now, I’m taking maintenance medicines for the first time to stabilize my heartbeat,” she explained. “Marami na ring bawal kaya sobrang ingat ako ngayon,” she added.


The actress revealed she could still work.


“ But puwede pa rin naman akong magtrabaho, basta may cut off ako sa puyatan. Hanggang 2 a.m. na lang ako at di na puwede ‘yung magdamagan. At the most, 16 hours lang,” she explained.


Work for Lorna means appearing the in two top networks.


For GMA7, she has just finished taping a special Lenten presentation for “Eat Bulaga”, entitled “Pagpapatawad”, directed by her good friend Gina Alajar. She co-stars with Patricia Tumulak, Jennica Garcia, Taki and Kenneth Medrano of “Trops”, Baste, JC Tiuseco and Marc Abaya.


For ABS-CBN, she stars in a new teleserye, “Victims of Love”, directed by Onat Diaz and co-starring Angelica Panganiban, Julia Montes, Paulo Avelino (who’s really so busy as he’s in another teleserye, “The Promise of Forever”, which has yet to be aired), Cherry Pie Picache and JC Santos. This is under Deo Endrinal’s business unit called Dreamscape. Lorna’s last teleserye as a Kapamilya was in 2011 yet, “Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin”. On GMA7, she was last seen in “My Destiny”. Taping for “Victims of Love” will start in April after Holy Week.

Lorna or LT as she is fondly called by friends, is a doting grandma to her only grandchild, Tori, daughter of her eldest son Ralph. Tori is a splitting image of her grandma when LT was starting as a child actress in films like “Divina Gracia” and “Lumuha Pati mga Anghel”. Will Tori also be a child actress? 
“Naku, ayaw niyang mag-artista. Mas gusto niyang maging singer. Napakagaling kumanta. Nagko-concert na nga on her own. But she’s busy with school now, at sa June, lilipat na siya sa Poveda. Bawal daw mag-showbiz ang mga estudyante roon.”


Lorna also keeps busy with her son Mark Anthony Fernandez who is still jailed at the Pampanga provincial jail after he was arrested with marijuana after a police chase from Angeles City to San Fernando, Pampanga.


She said she wishes that her son’s case could be resolved soon.
