Heart Evangelista’s different glow and happiness is noticeable after Senator Chiz Escudero admitted in public the true state of their relationship.
Why did it took long and she didn’t admit about their status with Senator Chiz?
“Actually, hindi naman sa hindi ko inamin,” Started Heart.
“It’s something that you should be happy about that you’re together with someone.”
“It’s just that ano… kumbaga, parang balato ko na lang sa akin ‘yon. “
“Na parang for once in my life, I wanted something that I can enjoy first on my own—without announcing to the whole country na may boyfriend ako or something.”
“So parang, kumbaga, in-enjoy ko muna siya na sa akin lang.”
“Pero nang tinanong naman nga ako, hindi naman ako nag-deny na… we are together.”
SENATOR CHIZ. What did she like about Senator Chiz?
“He’s such a nice person. Seryoso siya pagdating sa mga dapat na seryosohin, pero napakasimpleng tao lang niya. “
“Uhm… nakakatuwa kasi he’s someone that you can really look up to, kasi nakikibagay talaga siya sa iba’t ibang klase ng tao. “
“And I learn so much from him.”
What qualities does she think the senator has that’s hard to find with other guys?
Heart answered, “Siguro yung sincerity niya sa lahat ng tao… yun siguro. “
“Kasi, especially he’s a politician, it’s really refreshing to see somebody like that.”
“Minsan tahimik siya, pero napakabait niya. Nakakatuwa siya. “
“He’s really down to earth, such a simple person as well.”
SENATOR’S GIRLFRIEND. Isn’t pressuring being a girlfriend of a senator?
“A… hindi ko pa napi-feel ang pressure,” Heart smiled.
“But, uhm… again, this time around, in way, I’d like to keep things a bit private.”
“Hindi naman sa may itinatago ako or anything. Just, you know, yung relaxed lang na kind of relationship. “
“Siguro it’s better that way para nga hindi maunahan ng mga intriga.”
Does she think senator chiz is the one that destined for her?
“In every relationship, you’d like to think so,” Heart answered shortly.
PARENTS’ APPROVAL. Did she consult her parents first before deciding to accept Senator Chiz as her boyfriend?
“No. I’m of age na kasi, e, kaya wala nang gano’n pa.”
What was the reaction of her parents when it finally came out in the news that she and Senator Chiz are together?
“Wala. Kung saan naman ako masaya, dun din sila.”
Does her family bet the senator as her boyfriend?
“Oo. Ano naman sila, e… they’re very supportive with me.”
AGE DOES NOT MATTER. Public is used to see Heart with someone who’s her co-star and co-age; like John Prats, Jericho Rosales, and Daniel Matsunaga.
Heart is only 27 years old, while Senator Chiz is 43.
“It’s nice rin naman. I learn so much,” Heart said about having a relationship with someone that has a large age gap with her.
Because Senator Chiz has offspring with his ex-wife Tintin Flores, Heart is instant mom if ever they end up together.
But Heart avoids being questioned regarding this matter.
“Ayokong pag-usapan,” She said.
Haven’t she meet the kids?
“I don’t want to comment,” Heart avoided.
ELECTION TIME. Will she support and join when Senator Chiz’s campaign started for election next year?
“We still have to talk about that,” Heart said shortly.
But is she willing to give her all-out-support about this?
“Hindi ko pa alam kasi I’m doing so much din, e.”
“May soap ako, tapos may movie rin ako.”
“Matatapos na ang Luna Blanca. And after nito, meron kaagad akong gagawing bagong soap.”
“Hindi pa ako puwedeng magkuwento ng detalye tungkol dito. Pero sa pagkakaalam ko, ang tema ay parang love story.”
“Hindi ko pa rin alam kung sino ang mga nasa cast na makakasama ko. Wala pa ring sinasabi sa akin kung sino ang makaka-partner ko.”
“Yung movie naman, ito yung Sosy Problems na entry for Manila Film Festival. It’s a comedy film.”
“Kasama ko dito sina Solenn Heussaff, Bianca King, Rhian Ramos, at Ruffa Gutierrez. “
“Ang kuwento nito ay tungkol sa buhay ng mga sosyal na magkakaibigan at kung ano ang mga nagiging problema ng mga mayayaman.”
AFRAID TO LOVE AGAIN? Is she still afraid when it comes to love or being in a relationship?
“Hindi naman sa natatakot but I’m very careful, even with my decision. “
“Or like now about… there’s a difference of denying and admitting. “
“But living a quiet… you know, parang a private life, hindi sa itatago mo.”
“Pero yung i-enjoy mo lang na parang… for the first time, this is for me. Parang gano’n.”
“So siguro ‘yon lang.”
Isn’t hard to handle their relationship because they’re both busy with their own profession?
“Hindi naman” said Heart.
“Kung gugustuhin n’yo namang magkita, magkikita at magkikita kayo.”
“In a relationship, you do make time for each other.”
So it really depends on how do much you love each other?
“I guess so!” giggled Heart.
