Angelica Panganiban admitted she has yet to talk to Jason Francisco after the latter’s supposed rift with Pooh, her co-star on “Banana Split.”
Francisco reportedly got upset after Pooh allegedly questioned his capacity to support his future wife, Melai Cantiveros, and their child.
Cantiveros is also part of “Banana Split.”
Panganiban said Francisco probably misinterpreted Pooh’s intention when he said such statements.
“Hindi ko nakakausap si Jason. Hindi ko rin alam ang number niya. Kung siguro minasama niya ‘yung sinabi ng kaibigan ko, si Pooh, opinion iyon eh. Hindi kasi masama ‘yung intention ni Pooh. Ang gustong sabihin ni Pooh and ‘yung iba pang nagsabi noon, sobrang mahal namin si Melai,” she said.
Known as one of Cantiveros’ close friends in showbiz, Panganiban defended Pooh saying the latter only wants the best for the comedienne.
“Hindi naman siguro niya kinukuwestiyon. Buhay naman nila iyan. Labas na kami diyan,” she said.
Asked if she will be attending Cantiveros and Francisco’s wedding in December, Panganiban briefly said: “Hindi. Hindi rin naman ako invited.”
But she quickly added: “Wedding nila iyon. I-enjoy nila. Kapag wedding ko, ayaw ko rin ng may maririnig na masama ang loob sa akin.”
The actress then wished the couple all the best as they tie the knot.
“Gusto kong maging matagumpay sila sa larangan ng pag-ibig, ng pagbuo ng pamilya… Dapat magpaganda [si Melai], magpabongga siya. Once in a lifetime iyan so dapat siya ang pinakamagandang bride,” she said.
Earlier this month, Francisco lashed back at his bashers who cast doubts on his supposed capacity to support his own family now that Cantiveros is pregnant with their baby.
Francisco said he is a hardworking person and he will do everything to make his family feel comfortable.
“Kahit noong wala pa akong asawa, ako na talaga nagtratrabaho sa amin. Saan ba ako pinulot ng ‘Big Brother’? Sa lansangan. Nag-iisip ka na lang na kung bibigyan ka ng chance [sa showbiz], go. Pero kung hindi, hindi ka naman tutunganga at kakain na lang ng kangkong,” he said. (MNS)
