“Di ba parang… bakit? I’m not… hindi naman ako bitter na kung anuman ang nangyayari sa kanila. But I’m happy for them.”

Gerald Anderson’s courtship to Sarah has been an open book in 2012, but it stopped due to the singer-actress parents’ wishes.

 But according to Sarah, “Ayoko siyang pag-usapan.”

“Hindi lahat ng napapanood natin, yun ‘yon.”

“Hindi ko na alam… ayoko nang pag-usapan pa.”

Sarah has experienced two heartbreaks already. First with Rayver Cruz and Gerald was next.

Because of what happened, does Sarah now prefer that the next one she will love will be from non-showbiz?

She respond, “Nandun yung preference na sana non-showbiz, kasi siyempre alam naman natin na mahirap na nama-magnify ka, gustong malaman ng lahat kung anong progreso na, kung ano na nangyayari sa relasyon ninyo… so mahirap.”

“Saka ako yung tao na kulang pa sa eksperyensiya.”

“Hindi ko alam kung paano pangalagaan pa o kung ano ba ang dapat na gawin ko para halimbawa maging gaya nila Ate Juday [Judy Ann Santos] and Kuya Ryan [Agoncillo]… yung mga successful sa mga celebrity couples natin.”

OTHER HEARTACHES. Sarah also revealed that went through heartaches not only with Rayver and Gerald, but there are also people who became part of her life that gave her a failure.

“Hindi siya second, many times na rin.”

“Kahit naman wala pa ako sa show business, may mga heartaches na rin.”

“Masyado kasi akong sheltered kaya pag na-brokenhearted ako, wasak talaga.”

“Ganun talaga ako, grabe talaga.”

“Iba ako magbigay ng tiwala kasi akala ko, kung paano kita pagkatiwalaan, ganun mo din ako pagkakatiwaaan. Kung gaano kita minamahal, ganun mo rin ako mamahalin.”

“Dapat matagal ko nang natutuhan na i-guard talaga ang puso ko.”

“Dapat talaga makita mo kung ano siyang tao.”

“Pag nai-in love kasi tayo, nawawala lahat yun, nakakalimutan mo.”

Although what was going on between them didn’t push through, there are things that Sarah values in the courtship of Gerald.

“Yung effort, yung willingness na harapin ang mga magulang.”

“Pero siyempre, hinahanap natin yung consistency.”

“Iba yung kayo, iba yung nakikita sa mga tao sa paligid ninyo—yung sincerity.”

In the end, Sarah leans only to her family after what happened.

She stated, “Napakalaking bagay nila sa kung anuman sa akin at responsiblidad ng mga magulang.”

“Kumbaga, they have all the right na pangalagaan ang anak nilang babae.”

“Kilala naman nila ako, ang situation ko, hindi madali.”

“Sana bago pumasok sa ganitong klaseng bagay, bago ako niligawan, dapat sigurado sila.”

Sarah admitted that she was hurt to what happened between Gerald and her.

“Ayokong sabihin na hindi ako nasaktan, talagang nasaktan ako kung ano ang nangyari.”

“Pero ito ang gusto ng Diyos, ayaw na nating kuwestiyunin.”

“Hindi ko alam kung nasaktan talaga siya [Gerald].”

“Oo, totoo yun, yung sinabi ni Ate Juday na in every heartaches, mas masakit.”

TRAUMA. Does the happenings gave her trauma to the point that she can tell to herself that she should be really careful to the next man she will love?

“May ganun, siyempre kung anuman ang nangyari sa akin, naulit lang, e.”

“Nagtiwala ako agad, ganun, ganyan.”

“Dapat maging leksyon talaga kung anuman ang mga nangyari sa akin in the past.”

Sarah was true to herself that the painful happenings affect her work but she used it in a positive way.

“Oo, kahit ayaw mong isama, halimbawa may pinagdadaanan, ang maganda diyan, ang sarap umiyak sa mga eksena.”

“Wala na ako dun, tapos na ako dun.”

“Sa ngayon, wala na.”

“Nandun yung memories, yung mga bagay na nagpapasakit ng loob mo.”

“Pero ayokong mag-dwell dun kasi hindi ka magiging masaya. Ayaw mo namang mabuhay sa ganun.”

“Thank you Awit Awards and sa PARI [Philippine Association of the Record Industry]…”

She said, “Ay, wala yun, hindi totoo yun.”

“Hindi naman yun ang makakapagkumpleto sa akin as a person.”

I can’t call myself a good actor kasi ang dami ko pang gustong gawin”, he said.

The TV show “Budoys” will be end on Friday, March 8. “Mixed emotions kasi patapos na pero sobrang masaya rin kasi alam po namin na na-meet na namin yung goal na gusto naming mangyari bago mastart yung show, which is magbigay ng inspirasyon sa mga tao”, Gerald said.

Ate Shawie is the Newest Kapatid

Megastar Sharon Cuneta’s transfer from ABS-CBN to TV5 has long been an issue which Megastar neither confirmed nor denied. Yesterday, November 22, 2011, the issue was proved to be right as TV5 employees welcome Sharon Cuneta as their newest Kapatid. Describing how she felt as she stepped foot in TV5 office at Marajo Tower in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig with a warm welcome by her new TV5 family, Sharon said that it was “mixed emotions.”

The Megastar signed a five- year-contract with the Kapatid Network inclusive of a daily TV show, a reality show, and a movie project. Present in the contract signing was TV5 President and CEO Atty. Ray Espinosa, TV5 COO Robert Barriero, Sharon Cuneta’s longtime manager Sandra Chavez and her other manager Vic del Rosario of Viva Artist Agency. However, TV5 Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan was not there during the contract signing. “MVP is supposed to be here but there’s too much Pangilinans already,” Sharon said as a joke.

Sharon Cuneta is rumored to have a 1 billion peso talent fee but when the press tried to confirm the issue, they just kept mum about it.

On the other hand, KC was clueless in her mom’s transfer of home network.

KC on the issue: “Wala pa po siyang [her mom] kinukuwento sa akin. Siguro hinihiwalay lang niya ‘yong… Whatever makes her happy, magiging masaya din ako.”

Meanwhile, the much awaited Vilma Santos-Sharon Cuneta movie will not push through yet. Both Megastar Sharon Cuneta and Star for All Season Vilma Santos were saddened on this postponement.

“Hindi ako matatahimik hangga’t hindi kami gumagawa ng movie together,” Sharon said.

“Ang mga proyekto there’s such a thing as right timing e. Pagka may mga obstacles na ganyan, huwag nating ituloy. Baka kasi hindi pa time yan. Pero definitely, and magandang balita is nakareserba yan,” Ate Vi explains.

As of now, Ate Shawie focuses her attention in her movie with Gerald Anderson, Enrique Gil, and Julia Montes under the direction of Laurenti Dyogi which will be showed in theaters next year.

Kim and Gerald Back Together

Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson had broken up a year ago. Today they have since been good friends. They star at their own primetime dramas, paired opposite other stars. However, rumors has not stopped about them going back together.

During the recent Star Magic catalogue launch, Kim has denied all rumors about them being romantically back together.

Kim said in a jest, “Hindi nga kami nagkikita, eh. Nakita ko lang siya ulit sa ‘ASAP,’ so ayun. Huwag na muna natin isipin yan. Hayaan na muna natin yun at saka focus muna kami sa project namin. Tsaka na lang natin isipin yang mga love-love na yan,”

Kim now stars in an ABS-CBN hit series, “My Binondo Girl”. Here she plays a woman pretending to be a man, seeing for her father’s love.

While in a separate interview, Gerald said that he is proud of the success of Kim’s drama show and that he even teases Kim that she is more handsome than him when she plays the role of Yuan.

As for their love life, both of them have put that aside and now concentrating on their careers.

Like Kim, Gerald is all about his career. He plays the lead role of “Budoy” in the TV soap of the same name.

In fact Kim has congratulated him for his success.

“I congratulated him nung nakita ko and maganda kasi yung reviews. Si Gerald, iba naman talaga siya pagdating sa project niya, sobrang dedicated. Kinongrats ko siya in advance.”

Kim Chiu’s Leading Men

Kim Chiu in her upcoming primetime series My Bindondo Girl has three leading men. Xian Lim, Matteo Guidicelli and Jolo Revilla, according to the men, Kim can be one of the boys. Not because she has a heart of a boy but because Kim is down to earth, simple and easy to get along with even with any boys.

According to Kim, Matteo Guidicelli is her closest friend among her men because they both came from the south. They both go out with the rumor girlfriend of Matteo, Maja Salvador. Jolo Revilla is said to be the generous among them, he always buy foods for Kim. And Xian Lim is said to be techie, he teaches Kim many things about technology, he also likes eating.

Last Saturday, August 13, 2011, many praised Kim Chiu and her new leading man Edgar Allan Guzman with their great role in Maalala Mo Kaya. But according to Kim, she didn’t know Allan. Kim admitted she finds it quite hard to work with him, especially that they should play the role as partners.

And unlike her previous interviews, Kim Chiu is now more comfortable talking about her former on screen partner Gerald Anderson after her so-called break up. Kim Chiu said she learned how to love herself more. In an interview with Boy Abunda on ABS-CBN’s “The Buzz” on Sunday, the Drama Princess said she is thankful to have gone through such an experience. “I learned to love myself more. I learned how to be strong. And kung hindi ka naman nagmahal, hindi ka naman masasaktan eh. So thankful ako na naramdaman ko ‘yun,” Kim said. “Wala akong sama ng loob o galit sa kahit na sino. Masaya ako na naramdaman ko ‘yun.” Kim said she and Gerald are now better friends after the so-called breakup. “Kami ni Gerald, sobrang okay namin. Hanggang ngayon, andiyan siya ‘pag may problema. ‘Pag hindi ko na kaya, kinakausap ko siya, nakikinig siya,” she said. And when she asked how she handled the pain, she said, “Umiyak ka lang. Pagkatapos nun masaya ka na ulit, kasama mo friends mo, mga taong nagmamahal sa’yo. Hindi naman masamang magmahal. Hindi. Tao ka rin naman so marami ka talagang mararamdaman sa ngalan ng pag-ibig,” she added.

Last year, Kim Chiu denied rumors that she tried to commit suicide after her so-called breakup with Gerald Anderson. Both have repeatedly said that they never became a couple, with Anderson saying that what they had was a special relationship.

The young actress even expressed her support for Gerald’s upcoming projects including his teleserye Budoy where he stars opposite Jessy Mendiola and a possible movie with Sarah Geronimo. It’s been a year since they were last paired in Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo, and Kim is really hoping for positive feedback on her first primetime soap without Gerald. Kim is quite speechless though when told that Gerald is wishing her well not only in terms of her career but even with her love life as well. Although they don’t have constant communication, Kim said it’s enough to know that he’ll still be there for her when she needs help.

Kim expressed her deepest gratitude because the newest Kapamilya star from Kapuso network GMA-7, Paulo Avelino acknowledge Kim and he wants Kim to have a project with him.

Simon Atkins is one of the men that are link to Kim. And according to Kim, they are friends. She heard Simon had been to the hospital for an injury because of her fans.
