Joey Marquez to stay single forever?

Nov 7, 2006
No marriage plans in the near future, says Joey
“I may be alone but I’m never lonely.”

Comedian and TV host Joey Marquez gave this reply when asked about his love life in an exclusive interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) last October 27 at the Crowne Plaza hotel.

Joey did not budge when we insisted asking about the identity of his new ladylove. Instead he just said, “Non-showbiz. Definitely, no more showbiz for me.”

After his high-profile romance with actress-TV host Kris Aquino, Joey found new love in Alicia Mayer, his co-star in GMA-7’s Lagot Ka Isusumbong Kita. But this also fizzled out after “siguro mga seven months.”

Since they work together in one show, Joey said that something changed between them after their break-up.

“Hindi lang kami masyadong nagkakausap not like before,” disclosed Joey. “Ako hindi naiilang e. Naintindihan ko na lang siguro yung feelings niya. Siyempre umiiwas na lang din ako ng konti para at least, hindi ko siya ma-offend, hindi ma-misunderstood yung gestures ko.

“Okay naman na kami. The same, hindi pa rin kami nag-uusap,” Joey laughed. “I mean well. Basta kakausapin naman ako, kakausapin ko e. Nahihiya lang akong mag-first move.”

Joey clarified that there was closure in his break-up with Alicia. According to him, “We had a formal closure. Kaya it’s not that easy na agad-agad maging okay na lahat.”

As for the number of women he has dated after his relationship with Alicia, Joey gamely said, “I stopped counting na e. Marami, marami! Masisisira ang record natin. Kailangang i-present natin sa tao, playboy tayo. Especially when you’re getting old, kailangang marami.”

Joey told PEP that it’s possible that he will never get married again.

“Kasi there was one time na nag-meeting kaming lahat ng mga anak ko,” he began. “Sabi sa akin ng isang anak ko, ‘Dad, you can have as many girlfriends as you wish but never get married.’

"I do not think that any woman will accept being a second priority e,” he continued. “E masyado nang buo ang loob ko na my children are my first priority.”

We also asked if it’s true that his son Jeremy Marquez has split-up again with Alessandra de Rossi. Although Joey said that he does not meddle with his son’s love life, he nonetheless gave a hint on the real score between Jeremy and Alex.

“Hindi ko tinatanong e,” he said. “They’re old enough to admit whatever situation they have right now. I don’t want it to come from me. I don’t ask. Wala siyang [Jeremy] sinasabi sa akin.”

Then he added, “Ang alam ko lang, madalas sa akin si Jeremy ngayon. Madalas siya sa bahay. Dati hindi ko siya nakikita. Ngayon, palagi siyang nasa bahay. Nagtataka lang ako. Ako kasi, masyado akong optimistic e. Para sa akin, ang ibig sabihin no’n, nami-miss niya lang siguro ako.”
