Ramon Christopher Gutierrez is the real name of Monching Gutierrez, son of Pilita Corrales and Eddie Gutierrez. He is an actor in the Philippine movie and television industry. He used to be married with a fellow actress named Lotlot de Leon and they had four children. Monching has a sister by the name of Jackie Lou Blanco, and had half brothers in his father namely Richard, Raymond, Richard, Tonton and a half-sister popular actress and beauty queen Ruffa Gutierrez. Monching and Lotlot are now separated and are living their own lives.
Monching started his acting career in an afternoon teen-oriented show “That’s Entertainment’ where he was paired with Lotlot de Leon then. In 1989, they both decided to get married; they were hot copies then and everybody in the press wanted to witness that big event. They were both very young then, and rumors had it that Lotlot’s mom, superstar Nora Aunor will not attend the occasion because she did not approve of the relationship. Nevertheless and much to the surprise of everyone, she appeared and was even appropriately dressed to attend the big event.
Questions and doubts had even become an issue because the old family code considered the both of them minors, and there were some complications as to their age. Eventually, the couple lived their lives privately, that the press gave up and left them alone in the sanctity of their married life. They lived a good life and was even considered one of the ideal couples in Philippine showbiz.
But sometimes fate can be cruel and all things come to an end. It was in June 2003 that Lotlot left their house in Fairview, Quezon City and the couple evaded questions about it. It was Pilita who broke the ice and commented that “she wished Lotlot can find a man with a lot of money, because Monching was not a good provider” and that was Lotlot’s complaint when they were still together.
This triggered a no communication between the couple because everything went out of proportion. Their present set up required two kids stay with each of them. But because Lotlot is busy now with her acting career, the children usually stay with Monching. Monching had a small motor shop business near their home, and he admits that he had a few projects in show business, and that he admits getting financial help from his mother, and sometimes from his father and other siblings.
Monching came to Lotlot’s defense about what her mother commented about her, he replied that Lotlot is not that type of woman and he knows her very well. Monching was also quick to add that Pilita really loves Lotlot and that it is just natural for her to talk that way sometimes.
Things happen unexpectedly and circumstances are at other times beyond our control. That is what happened to this couple, but Monching admits he is still very much in love with his wife. He only hopes that they can fix things up and be together again.
