Two pairs in stark contrast but with one thing in common: they are friendly in front of the TV cameras.
As Funfare has been reporting, Vic Sotto and Pia Guanio formally ended their nearly seven years of going steady in July last year, but they have remained friendly toward each other as can be seen on Eat, Bulaga! where they sometimes tease each other, with Vic giving Pia a hug and a kiss. That’s what friends are for, isn’t it?
Vic is famous for romancing his Bulaga! co-hosts (Christine Jacob, Angela Luz and Coney Reyes; he has a kid each with Coney and Angela) who would quit the show as soon as the romance ended. Yes, the hosting job was co-terminus with the romance. But Pia seems to be the exception to the rule. She has broken the “tradition” and stayed on on the show that has remained unchallenged and undefeated for more than three decades.
Is it possible for an ex-couple to happily co-host and co-exist after the love is gone
? Of course, it is. Vic and Pia are the best proof.
The good news is that Pia has found a new love in the person of Steve (surname withheld, so far) with whom, according to Funfare DPAs, she has been “on” since September last year. Steve, between 26 and 30 years old, comes from a rich family who lives in Ayala Alabang, although Steve maintains a posh bachelor’s pad in Makati. Steve is a Filipino. His family is into the car-rental business. As Funfare reported a few issues ago, Steve was with Pia’s family during a post-Christmas holiday in Shanghai. Pia is happy with her new love and it shows, doesn’t it?
Meanwhile, Vic is said to be keeping an interested eye on Gwen Zamora, the Hilda Koronel lookalike who was his leading lady in Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote, the 2010 Metro Filmfest top-grosser. The irony of it all is that it was Pia who had to report the story on 24 Oras last Friday, quoting sources as saying that Vic spent Christmas Eve with Gwen’s family. Gwen said that Vic did bring her home because she didn’t have a car that night — “But he didn’t get in; he just stayed outside.” Hmmm, serious relationships
usually start that way.
Fair is fair. Pia has found a (slightly) younger man, so what will stop Vic from finding his own younger woman? If she and Vic end up as an item, Gwen doesn’t have to worry about being criticized for going out with a “married man” because Vic has been “un-married” (from Dina Bonnevie) a long time ago and is therefore legally an eligible bachelor.
