In her interview with "The Buzz' that aired last Sunday, Angelica revealed that her biological mom died 2 years ago. The actress's mom was buried in Singapore where she paid her respects during All Souls' Day last month.
Angelica learned about her adoption after taping her gag show "Banana Split". She confessed that, even before that, she already had doubts about her identity.
According to Angelica, "Noong highschool ako may nagsasabi na a akin na kilala 'yong tuny kong nanay. Nag-start na akong mag dabouts kasi bakit may lumalabas na ganoon.
When she finally found the courage to ask, she told her cousin, "Alam mo feeling ko ampon ako." Angelica said that her cousin suddenly broke down and it was only then that she learned that truth about the adoption.
Angelica added, "Wala akong nararadamang galit. 'Yong una kong naramdaman nainggit ako kasi hindi pala ako part ng family na kinalakihan ko na parang sa akin ang perfect na ang lahat."
She said her adoptive family was only protecting her from possible negative reactions once the truth came out. Angelica explained that he adoptive mom might have been forced to keep it a secret after she enters show business.
According to Angelica, "Never nilang pinaramdam na iba ako."
She also did everything to find her biological dad, Mark Charison. She revealed that her father did not try to find her because he thought that she and her biological mom had been in a car accident.
"After ko kausapin 'yong mama ko hindi siya sure kung ano talaga ang name ng daddy ko. So, 'yong binigay niya sa akin walang first name. Last name lang.
"Una kong pinuntahan 'yong website ng Navy and then nakita ko doon ang pangalan niya, walang phone number, walang kahit na ano. And 'yong mga panahon na po iyon wala akong plano na tawagan siya, makausap siya, gusto ko lang makita ang picture niya. Para lang mabuo ang imagination ko."
