Actress Rianti Cartwright says that she and her husband, businessman Cas Alfonso Nainggolan, are busy with their respective activities, preventing them from appearing together in public.

“If he accompanied me to work, he would have to be free, but he has his own work,” Rianti said.

Rianti, who has starred in several movies, including box office hit Ayat-Ayat Cinta (Verses of Love), revealed she and her husband spent their weekends watching DVDs and having dinner together.

“Weekends are special times for us. They can’t be disturbed,” said Rianti who was once rumored to have a special relationship with dangdut singer Ridho Rhoma.

Pop diva Krisdayanti (KD) has said that she wants to go on vacation with her husband Raul Lemos and her ex Anang Hermansyah.

“I wish that one day, both of our families could go on vacation, so that Anang and Raul could spend time together,” she said.

She did say that it is not her New Year’s resolution.

“If we are sincere [in making wishes], it will come true,” said the 37-year-old singer.

KD and Anang were divorced in 2009 after 13 years of marriage. KD is now married to Raul, a Timor Leste businessman, while Anang married singer Ashanti.

Singer Arlan Djoewarsa has said that his wife, singer Astrid Sartiasari, cried when giving birth to their son Alec Djuara Djoewarsa, earlier this week. Arlan said Astrid cried when she could not give birth normally and decided to switch to a caesarean operation.

“Astrid was frustrated that she wasn’t strong enough [for normal childbirth]. I just couldn’t stand seeing her under so much pain. I supported her decision [to have the baby through caesarean],” he said.

Astrid said that Arlan was by her side all through the “smooth” childbirth process.

“The anesthesia was only local [during the childbirth], I could still hear what the doctor was saying. Arlan was brave. He stood by my side when there was so much blood. He talked to me through the process,” she said.

Singer Krisdayanti, popularly known by the moniker KD, says that her infant daughter Ariannha Amora Lemos is showing signs of jealously toward her newborn brother Kellen Alexander Lemos.

“[Amora] gets jealous quite often. When I have to feed [Kellen], she pretends to cough to get my attention. When we are about to sleep, she grabs my hand as if to tell me to hug her,” said the 37-year-old wife of Timor Leste businessman Raul Lemos.

She said that she and Raul had to pay a lot of attention to both Amora and Kellen, because there was less than one year between them in age.

Amora was born in September last year and Kellen earlier this month.

KD and Raul married on March 2011 after her divorce from singer Anang Hermansyah in 2009.

Sophia Latjuba apologizes from her Los Angeles home for a tardy email response. Her former husband, Michael Villareal, is out of town and she is on mommy duty 24/7 for their young daughter.

“I am a walking zombie at the moment, which kind of fits the whole Halloween theme,” the model and actress jokes.

There is a lot to occupy the 42-year-old at present. Apart from raising Manuella, 7, and her older daughter, Eva Celia, 20, who is studying music at college in Hollywood, the Indonesian-German is also pursuing her love of yoga and penning what she calls a no-holds-barred autobiography.

Oh, and she is also changing her famous name.

A couple of months ago, she quietly revised the surname on her Facebook account and BlackBerry profile to “Mueller”, her Austrian-German mother’s maiden name. Except for her friends, few members of the public know about the change.

Sophia’s explanation of her decision could be called a complicatedly cosmic one. She cites the approaching end to the Mayan calendar and tremendous shifts in the world. The new cycle dawning is an alignment of the feminine and masculine, she believes.

“To celebrate this, I want to honor my female ancestors and therefore use my mother’s maiden name,” she said, adding it is not a rejection of her paternal descent.

“I am extremely honored for having used my father’s family name for 42 years, and people will always remember me that way. My grandfather, [diplomat] Mahmud Latjuba, was a wise, intellectual, honest and honorable person, and so was my late father, and the name Latjuba has opened so many paths for me.”

She acknowledges the “rather impulsive decision” is proving a much more complex bureaucratic process than she expected. But adopting a new name is also an opportunity to start afresh at this new point in her life.

“The name has become so attached to myself, the fame and all, and I am in the middle of detaching myself from all these layers. It’s like shedding half of my ego. I’m finding my true self. It’s a new beginning.”

Starting over also comes with her recent divorce from Villareal after seven years of marriage. She says they remain good friends in jointly raising Manuella.

“Of course, it’s a huge adjustment for me, so I’m trying to focus my energy on both my daughters and they’re a big help in making things easier.”

Her typical day entails waking up early at 5:30 a.m. for silent time with coffee, the daily newspapers and reflection on the previous day’s events. She then does “Mommy duty”, getting breakfast ready for her daughter, driving her to school and then taking a yoga class. For the rest of the day, it’s more of the same — pickups, cooking and homework.

She moved to Los Angeles in December 2008 to escape the stresses of living in Jakarta. Today, she calls her relationship with the city “love-hate”. On the one hand, it’s a beautiful city and brimming with opportunities, but it’s also intensely impersonal and superficial, she said.

Still, she always believes there is a reason for everything.

“This city has taught me tremendous patience and strength, especially realizing that no place is perfect. And I’m extremely proud of myself for living through the ups and downs and still holding my chin up high,” she said.

“I have also learned how to become comfortable with myself being alone, that I don’t need to be surrounded by people to feel complete.”

She seems constantly hungry to learn — about herself and the world — despite her public persona as a beauty who can sit pretty with the world at her feet. It may seem mercurial, but there is a searching, almost restlessness in her explorations. “I feel it’s driving me nuts sometimes,” she said.

The first time I interviewed her, she was cooking a roast as a confirmed meat eater; in a subsequent interview, she was studying holistic therapies and had become a vegetarian. She asks what books I like; her first choice is German literature, the complex language that intrigues her.

Moving to Los Angeles has given her the chance to nurture her passion for yoga — “sometimes I do believe that the universe brought me to this city for yoga only”.

“It has stirred up my energy so much — remember, energy can be very fierce and very gentle at the same time. I have come to know my body and own it, be comfortable in my own skin. I’m finally learning to love myself.”

It’s a statement that may sound hollow coming from many men’s fantasy woman of the 1990s, but she insists it’s true.

“What I mean is that I kind of never had a good body-mind connection. Plus I was a very insecure person to begin with. Maybe that’s why I’m comfortable being in showbiz, which gives me a great ego-booster. I can’t believe I just said that!”

She is planning to return to Jakarta in mid-November to take care of the official details of changing her name and catch up with family and friends. She misses certain aspects of life in the capital, food in particular, but says she cannot imagine returning.

“I also miss not being recognized. It’s not because I’m being narcissistic here, but being recognized reminds me of all the hard work I did in my life, and fame just came with it. I miss hanging out with my friends and having a good laugh.”

She is excited about writing her autobiography, to be written in a novelistic style and coauthored with her friend, leading celebrity biographer Albertheine Endah.

“It will be sensational. I plan to keep it real and honest, whether people like it or not.”

It’s another step in her journey of life, wherever it ends up taking her and whatever peaks and valleys emerge along the way.

“It’s a learning process. If I don’t get it here and now, I will try better in the next one,” she said.
