Multi-awarded broadcaster and journalist Luchi Cruz-Valdes joins the talk show circuit with TV5’s newest program, Usapang Real Life with Luchi — a timely spell in this time of COVID 19 when everyone’s life has been upended by the pandemic. Every person always has a story to tell. Whether it’s about their personal life or their struggles and their triumphs; each narrative deserves to be heard. With this new weekly lifestyle program, Usapang Real Life with Luchi, which launched last August 15, Pinoys are in for a Saturday night filled with stories of hope and positivity.
During the virtual launch with Luchi Cruz Valdes, the almost 60-year old yet very young looking Broadcast journalist she mentioned that he wanted to interview Park Seo-Joon (What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim, and Itaewon Class) for the show. She even sent a letter because why not?

Line-produced by ContentCows Company, Usapang Real Life with Luchi shows veteran newscaster and noted investigative reporter, Luchi Cruz-Valdes, in a new light. Here we meet a different side of Luchi: one who is lighthearted, nurturing, and compassionate. This side of her allows her to connect to her guests, bringing out close and personal stories of celebrities that many people do not usually get to see. The show showcases ordinary Filipinos and encourages them to share their stories to illustrate that all of us, the famous and the homespun, go through the same struggles, the same challenges, the same acts of courage, and compassion for each other. At the end of the day, these meaningful stories and experiences are what makes us human and belong to the same community values and ideals we share as a nation.
She also mentioned that would love to have Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla to be interviewed. These are the first two names she mentioned when asked about loveteams she would like to have a sit down. And it not impossible to happen because virtual is the new actual. And I agree! Although, Usapang Real Life might need 4 weeks for Daniel and Kathryn as they have so much to tell us!
Other love teams she mentioned after were Liza and Enrique, James Reid and Nadine Lustre and Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia which are equally interesting people!
In her talk show, Luchi herself opens up about little known facts of her life and the issues she is similarly facing as the rest of us. For instance, she’s a devoted mother of three and a widow, and an avid fan of Korean dramas. She likewise has her personal viewpoints on the issues of the day, as well as trendy topics and concerns that people talk about, which she shares on the show. These cover the gamut of life in the province, mental health, married life, motherhood, passions, and advocacies, and how people deal with change. Usapang Real Life with Luchi puts a spotlight on life behind the camera; unveiling real experiences and celebrating our common humanity. It’s about harnessing the lessons of everyday life and using these to empower and give hope.
KC Concepcion and Karen Davila were Luchi’s first guests in the pilot episode which premiered August 15.
