It seems like the story in the ABS-CBN primetime series Ina Kapatid Anak is being alike in the happenings in real life between the star casts, Kim Chiu and Maja Salvador.
The characters of Celyn(Kim) and Margaux(Maja) are having a conflict because of a man between them who’s Ethan(Enchong Dee).
Friends in real life Kim and Maja are being intrigued because of Maja being link to the ex-boyfriend of Kim, Gerald Anderson.
In the press conference of Ina Kapatid Anak book 2 last night, January 8, at Luxent Hotel in Timog Avenue, Quezon City, Kim breaks her silence about the rumor of Maja and Gerald’s relationship.
Kim said, “For me, I’m happy for them.”
“Wala naman pong masama, pareho naman po silang single.”
“Maging masaya na lang po tayo para sa kanilang dalawa.”
But she added, “Nakakalungkot lang, kasi yung friendship, nasayang.”
Kim never thought that it is possible for her friend and ex-boyfriend to develop a mutual feeling to each other.
“Nagulat ako, e, and nabigla. Hindi ko ine-expect na mangyayari itong ganito.”
“Di ba parang… bakit? I’m not… hindi naman ako bitter na kung anuman ang nangyayari sa kanila. But I’m happy for them.”
“Parang nalungkot lang ako kasi yung taong [Maja] sinabihan ko nung time na down ako dun sa [kay Gerald]… yung parang kinain niya lang yung sinabi niya.”
MAJA ASKED FOR HER PERMISSION. Does this mean there’s tension between Maja and her?
Kim said, “No, we’re good, we’re okay.”
“I don’t care… I don’t care about them. Bahala na siya.”
“She knows Gerald… who Gerald is.”
Do Maja and her work in Ina Kapatid Anak have been hard because of this issue?
“Hindi naman po. We can work professionally and nagawa naman po namin yun.”
“Maganda naman yung mga eksena namin. So, it’s okay.”
Being friends, did Maja make an effort to talk to her?
“She asked permission to me. And then I said, bakit kailangan pang magpaalam, e, wala na ako kay Gerald.”
“Kaya medyo naaano lang ako na ang daming tao na nagtatanong sa akin about Gerald. Bakit?”
“Di ba, parang ang tagal na, three years na? Ang dami pang babaeng dumaan after ko.”
TIRED OF QUESTIONS ABOUT GERALD. Kim didn’t hide her irritation to the ongoing inquiry of people and press about Gerald.
“Nakakapagod na po kasi yung tanong kayo nang tanong sa akin tungkol kay Gerald, e, ang dami na niya pong dinaanang babae, di ba? Hindi lang naman po ako.”
“Bakit hindi n’yo po hingin yung opinyon ng ibang babae since marami naman po sila?” Kim said.
Why does she think it seems like her and Gerald’s names are inseparable?
“Hindi ko po alam. Ang dami naman pong nakakaalam… it’s been magti-three years na [kaming hiwalay].”
“And the press and the people kept on asking me if I’m okay, if I’m doing fine.”
“Of course, I’m doing fine. Ang tagal ko nang naka-let go and ayoko nang magpakatanga.”
Kim admitted that she and Gerald weren’t close again since after the breakup. This is despite the movie they worked together, 24/7 Inlove.
“Kami ni Gerald… hindi kami naging close. We just did it for work,” She said.
POSITIVE IN 2013. This 2013, what does she want to change or be goal this year?
Kim answered, “Parang positivity, fearless, be happy, and then let’s just enjoy.”
“And sa mga basher, tama na po. Let’s just be happy for the both of them [Maja at Gerald].”
“Kung nagmamahalan sila, kung anuman yung nararamdaman nila sa isa’t isa, maging masaya na lang po tayo.”
