Angel Locsin and Luis Manzano

Angel Locsin and Luis ManzanoAngel Locsin surprised everyone with her revelation that she still has feelings for former boyfriend, Luis Manzano, during the blog conference of her upcoming teleserye, The Legal Wife, on Wednesday.

“Mahal ko pa rin siya, mahal ko siya talaga. Nag-uusap kami, inaayos namin ‘yung mga naiwan namin na mga issue dati, two years rin ‘yun na nag-iiwasan kami. Pasensiya na naluluha ako, hindi ako kailan man nagsinungaling sa inyo,” an emotional Angel said.

The actress also clarified that she’s just being honest and did not make the revelation so that her new series will get some buzz. She also denied allegations that Luis has something to do with her breakup with footballer Phil Younghusband in October last year.

“For the longest time, hindi talaga kami nag-uusap (ni Luis). Iniiwasan talaga namin ang isa’t isa for two or three years. So walang makakapagsabi na naglalandian kami kasi nagiiwasan talaga kami ng napakahabang panahon,” Angel explained.

Locsin also shared that she and Luis talked during the New Year.

“Pinag-uusapan namin ‘yung mga bagay na hindi namin pinag-uusapan …Pero masaya ako na okay na kami,” she said.

Meanwhile, Luis reportedly visited Angel in a dressing room at the ABS-CBN compound after learning about his former girlfriend’s declaration. The Minute To Win It host admitted feeling surprised about what Angel said but happy that they are starting to talk again and patch things up.

When asked if he, too, still has feelings for Angel, the actor-host replied on the affirmative.

“Mahal ko naman si Angel, definitely. Especially nga itong nangyari nung Christmas and New Year’s parang everything has been rekindled. It’s so hard to put it into words. Pero let the smiles on our faces, well for her case the tears on her eyes, speak on our behalf,” Luis said.

He also denied rumors that Angel was a third party in his  breakup with Jennylyn Mercado and echoed Angel’s statement that they have not been in speaking terms since breaking up in 2009.

Aiai delas AlasComedy Queen Ai-Ai delas Alas announced on her official Instagram account that the divorce proceedings, with estranged husband Jed Salang, has been finalized. The Instagram post contains a short video with the caption, “Wanted by Many, Taken by None, Looking at Some, Waiting For The One” and a photo of the comedian seemingly jumping with joy.

The video also contains the message, “Divorce Decree Now Issued. I just checked the LV (Las Vegas) court website” and was captioned: “100% single #movingon #movingforward #thankyoulord #happiness #2014pasabog #gandangpanimula”.

In response to one of her followers, Ai-Ai said that her father-in-law broke the news via a text message.

Ai-Ai and Jed were married on April 3, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Barely a month after getting married, Ai-Ai decided to end the relationship after Jed reportedly abused her physically, psychologically and verbally.

In an interview after the controversial breakup, Ai-Ai said that Jed became violent after she refused that they celebrate their “monthsary” in a casino.

She also revealed that she shrugged off rumors about Jed because she loved him very much. It was only when they were already married that she realized that the rumors were true.

“Kasi mayroon siyang friend dati, siguro mga three months pa lang kami, siguro naawa siya sa akin or nakunsensya. Sinabi niya sa akin na may balak si Jed na papatulan lang ako and later on — hindi ko masabi ang word pero kapag nagawa na niya iyon, iiwan na niya ako and may kakasamahin siyang iba,” Delas Alas revealed.
