For weeks, it had been the talk of the show biz town. Speculations and blind items spread like wildfire, describing a popular couple whose relationship was on the rocks and lately was reported to have ended.
These reports revealed a seeming, sudden chilliness or indifference between Vic Sotto and Pia Guanio whenever they were spotted together on “Eat Bulaga,” the daily noontime show that they host. Other reports recounted overhearing Pia at a gathering mentioning that she was already “free.”
These speculations came to a head when reports surfaced that their Brazilian “Eat Bulaga” co-host Daiana Menezes was said to have “caused” their breakup and that she was Vic’s new girlfriend.
After Daiana’s denial in media interviews, Pia and Vic, who for the first time spoke lengthily about such an issue, denied once and for all that they have separated.
And for both, their relationship was “good” and “okay.”
“Wala po kayong kailangang ikabahala,” Pia said on GMA-7′s “Showbiz Central” on Sunday, July 18. “You have nothing really to worry about because me and Vic, we’re very okay. There’s nothing wrong with us. We’re good. Even our working relationship in ‘Eat Bulaga’ has not been affected in any way.”
Vic confirmed this in a separate interview via phone patch on the same show.
“We’re good, we’re okay. Kasi minsan yung mga spekulasyon na walang imbestigasyon, minsan nakakagulo sa isang relasyon.”
Both, however, admitted that they are experiencing “rough” times in their relationship.
“Of course, I do have to admit na just like any other relationship, there are ups and downs. You go through rough patches… and that’s why I have to keep quiet because I didn’t want too many people to get involved. I wanted us to fix it muna and we are in the process of doing that,” Pia tearfully said.
Vic further said their problems were not that serious and it was simply a small, misunderstood petty quarrel or huff that was blown out of proportion.
“Wala namang problema,” Vic added. “We don’t even consider it a major problem. In other words, konting tampuhan binigyan ng masamang kahulugan ng ilang tao. Hanggang sa lumaki ng lumaki yung tampuhan. Parang naging away. Yung away naging hiwalayan.”
Despite the apparent and continuing friction between the two (they did not communicate during the televised segment), both likened their relationship to an incomplete building or a road that was “under construction,” saying they were working hard to fix the problem.
“Kumbaga sa kalye o sa building, we are under construction right now so I really want to ask everyone’s understanding right now. I just want you guys to give us some more time. Be patient. This is not something that you just throw away in one go. And, it’s hard enough as it is for the two of us (with) ten gazillion people giving their opinions, making up stories, getting involved, so it’s really all I have to say about it,” Pia said.
To end all speculation, Vic further stressed and echoed Pia’s statement.
“Kung anuman yung naging tampuhan namin, o kung anuman ang magiging desisyon namin, nasa aming dalawa na yun. And right now, that’s all we can tell everybody that we’re good, we’re okay. We’re having a nice time. As Pia said earlier, it’s always under construction. It’s like a house na under construction at minsan nauulanan pero nothing to worry about,” Vic said.
