MANILA -- Former sexy star Patricia Javier, who has returned to the Philippines, shared the reason why she is making a showbiz comeback.

In an interview on the DZMM show "Mismo" on Monday, Javier said Vic del Rosario of Viva Entertainment offered her a "good" project.

She added that she also wants her children to learn more about Filipino values as well as their native language.

"Siguro na-miss ko siya (showbiz) but at the same time, si Boss Vic del Rosario, siya ang nag-push sa akin na, 'hey, come back. I have a better project for you.' This time daw, bibigyan niya ako ng medyo dramatic role. So I signed up for Viva," said Javier, a mother of two who used to work as a head aesthetician at a dermatological clinic in San Diego, California.

"Siguro para sa akin 'yung opportunity na ibinigay again ni Boss Vic. At the same time, para sa anak ko kasi ang mga anak ko gusto ko silang mag-Tagalog at gusto kong makuha nila 'yung values natin dito, kung anong mayroon tayo rito. At ang asawa ko ay gusto ko siyang mag-practice dito. Bale ano lang, half of the year nandito kami at half doon," she added.

Javier was known for her movies "Ang Kabit ni Mrs. Montero" and "The Unfaithful Wife."

She was also part of a girl group called Asian Dolls.

Currently, Javier is promoting her album titled "Genesis: Songs From My Heart" under Viva.

She is also doing an indie film with Ricky Davao, Victor Neri and Melissa Mendez.
