Angelica Panganiban defended herself and her boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz against people who label them as alcoholics.
In an interview with Anthony Taberna for the June 26 episode of Tapatan ni Tunying, Angelica said that there is nothing wrong with social drinking even as rumors circulate about them being spotted getting drunk in public places.
Angelica has been in a relationship with John Lloyd for two years already. According to the actress, she has not seen him act inappropriately due to drinking.
Anthony directly asked Angelica: "Isa raw sa pinagkakasunduan ninyo ni John Lloyd, pareho kayong umiinom?"
She answered, "Oo naman.
“Ang opinyon ko dun, hindi ko nakikitaan ng problema ‘yong pag-inom, o ‘yong social drinking. Ang masama kung sumobra ka, may mga nangyayari nang hindi maganda, hindi ka na nakakapunta ng trabaho, o hindi ka na nakaka-perform nang maayos.
"Hindi ko siya nakitaan ng ganun."
The actress pointed out that they are not harming anybody when they indulge in drinking.
“Kahit na uminom siya, wala siyang tinatapakang mga tao at ganoon din ako.
"Kaya siguro hindi kami naaapektuhan sa mga taong nagsasabi sa amin na, 'Yang dalawang yan, lasenggo 'yan.' Kahit na siguro ano ang ipukol nila sa amin."
