All’s well that ends well. After their public misunderstanding months ago, Sarah Geronimo and Cristine Reyes on Sunday finally kissed and made up. Geronimo said she was the first one to approach the sultry actress at the backstage of musical variety show “ASAP Rocks.”
Said Sarah, “Matagal na matagal ko na siyang gustong makausap. Pagkatapos ng lahat ng gulo, gusto ko na talagang mag-sorry sa kanya.” She added she wanted to apologize not just to end the controversy but more so because she knew that Reyes, like her, also got hurt because of the issue.
This was how Geronimo narrated their reconciliation:
“Kasi nagmamadali [kami]. Naiwan ng make-up artist na si Len â€˜yong eyeliner doon sa dressing room ko. Tapos si mommy meron din siyang kinuha. Lumabas siya so sabi ko, ‘Hmmmm, nandiyan si Cristine. Puntahan ko na.’ ‘Kinuha ko ang eyeliner. Sabi ko, ‘Manang, samahan mo ako. Isu-soli ko lang ito.’ Sakto palabas si Cristine, so nagkatinginan kamiâ€¦. Parang umiwas pa siya,â€ she said.
The lead star of upcoming romantic-comedy film, â€œCatch Meâ€¦ Iâ€™m In Love,â€ said she embraced Reyes tightly and apologized to her for any misunderstanding.
“Sabi ko, â€˜Cristine.â€™ Nagulat siya. Siyempre may takot din ako na (kung) tatanggapin kaya niya o masasaktan kaya ako? Ano kaya ang mangyayari? Niyakap ko na lang siya. Hindi ko na lang siya pinakawalan. Sabi ko, â€˜Cristine wala akong intensyon (na saktan ka),'” she said.
According to Geronimo, Reyes turned teary-eyed and also apologized to her. The pop star princess also disclosed that Reyes said sorry to her mom. “And I also told her na, â€˜Cristine, naiintindihan kita. In-love ka eh.â€™ Sabi ko, â€˜Nangyari din sa akin yan noon.â€™ (Laughs)â€¦. Napangiti siya,” she said.
Geronimo, Reyes, and actor-dancer Rayver Cruz got involved in a love triangle. Prior to Reyes and Cruzâ€™s relationship, Geronimo admitted that she had a relationship with the actor-dancer.
In December of last year, Reyes blew her top over a snide remark that was allegedly made behind her back by Geronimo. What caught her ire was when Geronimo said during rehearsals for â€œASAPâ€ that a sexy woman would also chase a guy who is a good dancer.
Reyes took to the microblogging website Twitter to vent her anger against the pop star princess.
On Sunday, Geronimo once again clarified her statement.
She said, â€œKaya ko nilapitan si Rayver noon dahil gusto kong makipagbati, gusto kong ipakita sa mga kasamahan ko na wala naâ€¦. wala akong intensyon para makapag-flirt sa kanya.”
â€œâ€™Yong biro ko sa stage na â€˜yon, during rehearsals, sini-set ko lang mood, â€˜yong joke ko na â€˜yon for John [Prats] din â€˜yon at Rayver. Kasi totoo naman â€˜yon na â€˜yong magagaling sumayaw lapitin talaga ng mga magaganda at seksing babae. Si Rachelle (Ann Go, Pratsâ€™ girlfriend) sexy; si Cristine, sexy, maganda. Wala akong ibang ibig sabihin doon at â€˜yon ang gustong gusto kong ipaliwanag kay Cristine,â€ she added.
Juday’s friends support her determination to lose weight
Friends of Judy Ann Santos from the entertainment industry have expressed their full support to the actressâ€™ decision to lose weight before she makes her comeback in Philippine television.
On Thursday, Santos shared that she is now on a diet to shed off some weight after giving birth to her first child with husband Ryan Agoncillo.
During the 5th anniversary party of the fashion-lifestyle show â€œUs Girls,â€ hosts Cheska Garcia and Angel Aquino gave Santos some advice as to how she can easily get back to shape.
â€œIt took you 9 months to gain all those weight, it will take another 9 months or more to lose it…it’s a matter of exercising, eating right and getting active again,â€ Garcia said.
â€œWhat helped me get my stomach back is a binder… Tama na muna fatty foods so she doesn’t gain more weight,” shared Aquino, herself a mother.
“And keep your happy disposition…as long as your happy, we’ll always love you Juday,â€ Aquino said.
As for Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano, he said Santos just needs to have patience and proper discipline to be fit again.
â€œPara kay Juday, patience lang! It’s ‘baby’ weight. It will come and go. We’re all waiting for you. We can’t wait to see you on TV and do what you do best,â€ he said.
After her 10-month leave from the industry, Santos admitted that she is more than excited to return to work.
