Actress Angel Locsin wants to end the supposed rift of her group Ampalaya Anonymous with Pauleen Luna, while Ara Mina clears there’s no new rift between her and sister Cristine Reyes.
For weeks now, Ampalaya Anonymous is said to be ganging up on Pauleen on Twitter. It is said that JC Tiuseco’s new-found closeness with Pauleen started to ignite the fire between the two camps. Tiuseco is rumored to have broken up with one of Amapalaya Anonymous members, Maxene Magalona.
Clueless as to what caused Pauleen to flare up with her group, Angel said the matter could have been settled right away had the actress been vocal enough as to what it really was. As it is, nobody seemed to know what Pauleen had been yakking about in Twitter.
“Hindi talaga namin alam. Kung binanggit, siguro may idea na ako kung ano ba talaga ang nangyayari. Ayaw din lang namin na…siguro may kaibigan kami na mahu-hurt or siya rin. Sana mapag-usapan kung ano,” Angel said on “Showbiz News Ngayon”, May 17.
“Mas maganda kung diretsahan, hindi ‘yung maghuhulaan kami kung ano ‘yung problems. Mas maganda kung mapag-uusapan talaga,” she reiterated.
Angel admits she was not chummy with Pauleen. Theirs was just a civil relationship.
“Never naman kaming nagkaroon ng chance na maging close. Pero nag-uusap kami noong nasa channel 7 pa ako. We’re civil. Nag-uusap kami noong bini-BBM ko siya. Nandoon naman ang respeto.”
When asked to clear the issue, Pauleen declined to give a statement. She hopes that by staying quiet, everything will turn out for the best for everyone.
Meanwhile, Ara denies rumor that sister Cristine did not support her candidacy when she ran as councilor in Quezon City.
“Hindi naman sa hindi sinuportahan, bumababa din naman siya pero hindi ko madalas siya mayaya. Hindi ko siya mayaya na mag-house-to-house kasi ang init.
“Bihira ko lang siya istorbohin. Ayoko rin naman sabihin nila na ginagamit ko rin ang kapatid ko,” Ara explained in the same SNN episode.
She joked, “Baka ayaw rin niyang umitim. Feeling ko lang. Pero wala naman siyang sinabing ganoon.
“Busy rin naman kasi siya eh. Nagpareserve lang ako ng big events, big rallies, doon ko lang siya pinababa.”
And to show everyone that all is well between her and her younger sister, Ara shared that her US concert tour with Cristine is pushing through.
“Win or lose, meron akong schuedule—‘yung concert tour with Cristine and Bugoy. So, abangan n’yo po kami sa Las Vegas, sa Reno, sa Chicago.”
