"Katulad sa mom ko, gusto ko ako lang talaga. Medyo selfish ako sa attention."
Kris then insisted that Kim is the jealous type: "Selosa ka. Then sabi niya dati lang daw."
Kim admitted, "OA naman pag hindi ako selosa, wala na akong feelings."
Xian agreed by pointing out: "Parang selosa ka."
Kim stressed: "Hindi, ah. Natuto na ako."

Carmina Villarroel asked Xian what made him say that?

Is it okay with Xian if Kim entertains suitors?
Xian answered, "Yeah, seloso ako pero hindi ko naman control ang mga ganung bagay. Hindi ko naman pwede diktahan si Kim...hindi ko naman kontrolado kung anong mangyayari. Chill-chill lang dapat."
