One reason Marian is said to be entertaining the possibility of a change of networks is her closeness to ABS-CBN comedienne Ai-Ai de las Alas, her co-star in the movie “Kung Fu Divas”. Ang importante alam ni Ate Ai na marami siyang mga kaibigan na nasa likod niya,” she said.
The actress expressed surprise and disappointment over the unfortunate collapse of Ai-Ai’s marriage to Jed Salang just one month after their wedding in Las Vegas.
Showbiz-watchers put two and two together, and that equals... Basta, at that time, I felt that mas sweet pa nga siya sa akin; walang masyadong pressure. We were just ourselves kasi wala kaming masyadong iniisip.” What caused the breakup? I didn’t throw the pictures away; hindi ko naman sila pinunit. ‘Yon na lang ang aalalahanin ko.” Are you really still in denial? “I won’t say, ‘Moving on.’ I’d rather say, ‘Moving forward’ para mas mabilis, mas visual.” Isn’t really there any chance of you getting back together again? I asked him and he said...teka, ano ba ang sinabi niya? ’ to her.” Marian insisted that she has nothing to do with what happened between you and Dingdong.
The 33-year-old actress said that people should be happy for the both of them, and she hopes that they will no longer make an issue between them.
Meanwhile, Karylle admitted that he and her husband are planning for her possible pregnancy in the near future.
What busted the beautiful romance predicted to end happily ever after at the altar? “Oo, actually.” How did you feel when Dingdong was kissing Marian?
Fingers promptly pointed to Marian Rivera as the “culprit.” Dingdong’s leading lady in the GMA shows Marimar and Dyesebel and now in the GMA Films romance-drama One True Love, she was a credible “principal suspect” because, just weeks before the Dingdong-Karylle yarn hit the tab headlines (initially reported as a “blind item” in this paper’s Funfare column), she broke up with San Sebastian College basketball player Ervic Vejandre, her boyfriend of seven years. Instead, I went into counseling and I went on a retreat. I’m thankful to the priest who suggested that I do that. I was finally able to sleep soundly.” Was Dingdong your first boyfriend? He was not.” How many breakups have you gone through? “You know, kapag may ganoong eksena, he would ask me kung puede o hindi.” During those trying moments, did you run to your mom for, you know, consolation...moral support? But I talk to her long-distance every day.” What does she say about the whole thing? Better na siya na lang ang magsabi.” So you are now moving on? (Laughs wanly) “Basta ang masasabi ko lang diyan... Kahit isang daang tao pa ang nakaharang, nakikipagsiksikan ako just to say ‘Hi! Isang tao lang naman ang dapat kong tanungin at ‘yon ang sagot niya.
For three years, they were such a sweet, handsome pair. Even Karylle’s mom, Zsa Zsa Padilla (who broke up with husband Dr. You know, it’s hard to fake things, to tell yourself ‘I’m okay, I’m okay’ when you know very well that you’re not okay. Give me seven.’ You know, five of the seven happened just recently, the blessings. Alam mo ‘yon, kahit paano nabawasan naman ang lungkot ko. After every performance, big names in the industry were showering me with praises that I never expected in my wildest dream.” Back to the breakup... On weekends naman, when he was free, ako naman ang hindi because I was busy with West Side.” Were your kissing scenes with Christian a factor in the breakup?
Modesto Tatlonghari when Karylle was a kid), kept a respectful distance from the persistent rumor. Pero siempre, with this one the pain is times 10.” (Forced laughter). Because you know why, we had good times together; ang ganda rin kasi ng pinagsamahan namin. ‘Yon ang in denial.” So you were never in denial, were you? One of them is the realization na marami rin pala ang nagmamahal sa akin.” And what are the other four? Sa akin na lang ‘yon.” You were very good in West Side Story (as Maria, the same role played by Natalie Wood in the movie version, with Christian Bautista as Tony, played by Richard Beymer in the movie version). “No.” In the same way that Dingdong’s kissing scenes with Marian (in Marimar and in Dyesebel) were not? “I look at them that way.” Did you watch Marimar and Dyesebel?
Marian recently parted ways with long-time manager Popoy Caritativo and signed up with the management outfit of “Eat Bulaga” executive producer Tony Tuviera, who used to handle her modeling career.
The shift has fueled speculation that Marian might jump over to ABS-CBN once her contract with GMA expires.
The kapamilya singer and TV host Karylle reacted when asked about her former boyfriend, kapuso actor Dingdong Dantes, who recently went public with his engagement with long-time girlfriend Marian Rivera.
In an interview with the entertainment press on Wednesday, the “It’s Showtime” host said that she prefers not to talke about Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes for she doesn’t want to intrude into their lives.“Ako kasi, wala na ako sa eksenang ‘yon, so ayoko naman ding sumingit.
They are just preparing as husband and wife so they can commit their time to their first child.
