Cristine Reyes denies she and Zanjoe Marudo are competing against the Rafnise tandem

Jewel (Cristine Reyes, right) agrees to become a maid of Don Leon (Lito Legaspi) in exchange for the freedom of her sister Emerald (Denise Laurel, left).

Things get even more complicated on Martha Cecilia’s Kristine as members of warring clans De Silva and Fortalejo go against their own family this week.

Rafael Rosell’s character Marco will be on the bad side of his mother Julia when he volunteers to represent his girlfriend Emerald (Denise Laurel) in court, after the latter was blamed for an explosion inside the property of a family friend of the De Silvas.

Emerald, a Fortalejo, was actually set-up by Julia and Marco’s uncle Alfon.

Her sister Jewel, played by Cristine Reyes, meanwhile, will encounter a new adversary in the person of their very own grandfather, Don Leon. The Fortalejo patriarch will take in Jewel as a servant in his mansion in exchange for his efforts to get Emerald out of jail.

Like a knight-in-shining-armor, Zanjoe Marudo’s character Jaime will work as a driver of the Fortalejos to keep an eye on Jewel.

The TV adaptation of the country’s long-running pocketbook series features four lead stars, who now comprise two of the hottest love teams on television.

Cristine has been consistent in refuting claims of a rivalry between her team-up with Zanjoe and the Rafnise (Rafael-Denise).

"Bago pa man magsimula ’yung Kristine na show, e, nakapag-usap na kami na hindi kami magpapa-apekto sa mga ganyang bagay. Natutuwa pa nga kami na maliban sa fans ng show, at fans ng book na Kristine, e, may sari-sarili din supporters ang love teams," said the actress who has been dubbed by the Kapamilya Network as the Jewel of Romance.

This week, catch the intense confrontation between Julia and Anna, portrayed by veteran actresses Carla Martinez and Angel Jacob, respectively. Anna, Jewel and Emerald’s mother, is blamed for the long and bloody rift between the families when she and Roman Fortalejo eloped.

Catch them on Martha Cecilia’s Kristine, from Monday to Friday, after Magkaribal on ABS-CBN.
