Angelica Dispels Rumored Romance With John Lloyd, Speaks About Moving On
By MAUREEN MARIE BELMONTE
Starting with her supposed special closeness with John Lloyd Cruz and her alleged part in his split with Shaina Magdayao, followed by her being the reported cause of the breakup of John Prats and Bianca Manalo, Panganiban answered each with complete candor for which she’s known.
Of Cruz, Panganiban clarified during a taped interview aired on “The Buzz,” Sunday, that they are but mere colleagues working together. She emphasized that, “Sa ngayon hanggang doon palang ‘yon. Magkaibigan kami and ’yun lang ‘yon.”
In addition to their allegedly brewing romance, there had also been reports saying that Cruz was allegedly sighted frequently visiting Panganiban’s condo. While another issue said that they were purportedly seen holding hands and smooching in a bar.
Panganiban, again, dispelled the rumors, saying that such things were out of her character.
“Well ‘yun ‘yung medyo imposible na talagang mangyari. Medyo hindi na ako ‘yun. Hindi ko naman lubos maisip na gagawin ko ‘yun,” she stated, while adding, “Eh ganon ‘yung mga tao eh, ‘pag may gusto silang i-push ay ipu-push nila. Kung doon sila magiging happy eh di, I’m happy for them na nakakagawa sila ng mga ganyang klase ng intriga, ganyang klase ng isyu.”
The comedienne-actress is confident that amid all the trials that she’s facing right now in her career, “Lahat naman ng bagay may kapalit eh and naniniwala akong maganda ‘yung kapalit nung sakin.”
Has she any inkling how these rumors came about?
“’Yun nga eh kasi parang lahat ng mga kaibigan ko [naiuugnay na sa akin]. Hindi ko naman masisi ‘yung mga tao kasi pwede na siyang lagyan ng meaning ngayon eh.
“Kung dati siguro ito nangyari, hindi naman siya bibigyan ng meaning kasi in a relationship ang mga tao no’n. Eh ngayon naman hindi na so pwede na siyang bigyan ng kulay,” she explained.
Besides, Panganiban said with clear resignation that she has no power to control what other people think of her.
Despite all the controversy that she’s embroiled in connection with Cruz, the actress comedienne, though, didn’t completely rule out the possibility of forging an intimate relationship with Lloydie.
“Kung magiging special siya oh eh di makikita niyo, malalaman niyo ‘di ba? And kung maging matalik kaming magkaibigan, oh eh di magiging special siya,” Panganiban enthused.
But for now, she appealed to the public to not put malice in their fine working relationship because “mahirap bigyan ng ibig-sabihin, mahirap bigyan ng kulay kung ako ‘yung magbibigay ng kulay baka mag-iba. So hayaan muna natin. Hindi ko alam kung anong meron bukas eh, ‘di ba?”
To those accusing both she and Cruz of fabricating a relationship for the promo of their upcoming Star Magic film she said, “Hindi naman ako naging ganon. Hindi ko naman kayang maging ganong ka-showbiz na tao.”
Meanwhile, about her name being dragged into the recent ending of the seven-month-old relationship of Prats and Manalo, she maintained, “Malinis naman ‘yung konsensiya ko eh. ‘Yung nakakalungkot lang kasi bata palang ako kaibigan ko na si John eh. Pangit na bigyan ng ibig sabihin ‘yon, ng malisya.”
On moving on
A glum Panganiban, albeit not mentioning her ex Ramsay, also finally spoke up about her current status following the announcement of the conclusion of their six-year-old relationship last month.
“Ayos lang. Steady lang ako,” was her terse reply.
The 25-year-old actress, who’s been known for her exceptional vigor on-cam and even on Twitter, also admitted that she was truly hurt by the recent events in her life.
“Siyempre masasaktan ka, maapektuhan ka ‘di ba? Pero mas maganda kasing mag-move on eh. I think mas maliwanag ‘yung future ko,” she related.
But her moving on doesn’t mean that she’d jump into another relationship anytime soon, because “pagod na pagod pa ‘yung heart ko ngayon, ‘wag muna.”
If there’s anything that she learned from her unforeseen and emotionally-charged breakup, Panganiban said it was to cherish what she has everyday and “‘’wag kong isipin na mag-expect ng kahit ano kasi masakit ‘yon. So day-by-day lang, dahan dahan ako.”
Where does she draw her strength to move on?
“Wala akong ibang pwedeng daanan kung hindi ‘yung path na masaya. ‘Pag dinala ko ‘yung sarili ko sa malungkot, malulugmok lang ako. And alam ko namang magiging okay ako eh, so I think okay naman nako.”
