Oyo Sotto: "My break-up with Angel was nobody's fault."

Apr 18, 2007
"That time kasi, 'pag nagkikita kami, three weeks to a month na yung dumadaan. Kaya minsan, ang bati ko na sa kanya, ‘May girlfriend pa pala ako.' Of course, alam ko na she's been busy. Kaya nga na-realize ko na I have to give way na lang," says Oyo Sotto about break-up with Angel Locsin.


Is Oyo Sotto a certified Kapamilya now? PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) was able to interview Oyo at the press conference of Love Spell's "Sweet Sixty" which will air on ABS-CBN starting May 6.



"I'm not under contract naman po with GMA-7," says Oyo. "Dahil nasa TAPE [Television and Production Exponents, Inc.] ako, and it's Ms. Malou Choa-Fagar na manager ko. And this offer came kaya tinanggap namin. I have a contract though with Pedro Penduko, and I have started guesting na rin for several Kapamilya shows."



"Wala namang kaso sa akin 'yon. Kasi para sa akin, wala namang rivalry sa mga ganyan. And we are here to work. Nung may makapanood na ng ABS-CBN station ID [na nandun ako], marami ang nagbibiro sa akin."

Like Oyo, his mother Dina Bonnevie is also a Kapamilya with a new soap of her own, Walang Kapalit starring Claudine Barretto and Piolo Pascual.



"Nagkita nga kami sa Homeboy. Ang lagi lang naman paalala sa akin ni Mommy, kahit saan ako makarating, huwag lang daw lalaki ang ulo ko at matuto akong makisama," narrates Oyo.

Now being paired with young singer-actress Sarah Geronimo, people would like to believe that something romantic will brew between them as they tackle their roles in "Sweet Sixty."



"Wala muna akong lovelife ngayon. Mas gusto ko ring mag-focus muna sa work ko," he says.



So what about the rumor that you're courting Kristine Hermosa?



"Nakakahiya kay Diet [Diether Ocampo], that's why I wanted to talk to him sana. Kasi lumalabas lang kami nina Kristine and malaking grupo kami. And minsan nga, inihahatid pa niya si Kristine sa amin. Kaya nung lumabas yung issue na 'yon, hindi na rin muna kami lumabas kasi nga ayoko ring makagulo sa kanila," he explains.



Angel Locsin. What is the status now of his relationship with ex-girlfriend Angel Locsin? Is it true that her manager's, Becky Aguila, twins are still so much against him?



"Wala po akong masasabi with Tita Becky's twins kasi hindi naman kami magkakakilala, as in close. Nakikita ko lang sila noon sa condo ni Angel. And natuwa pa nga ako when Angel told me noon na nagka-ayos na sila ng manager niya. Ang sabi ko na lang sa kaniya is mag-ingat na lang siya at gamitin na niya lagi ang utak niya," says Oyo.

He adds, "We just talked two days ago. Kahit naman naghiwalay na kami, we make it a point na ma-save pa rin namin ang friendship namin dahil that's how we started—as buddy-buddies, nung nabubuhay pa si Miko, and lalo na nung mawala na siya."



How did his relationship with Angel really end? His Mom was quoted as saying it was Angel's fault. Dina even referred to Angel as "that girl."

"My break-up with Angel was nobody's fault," Oyo clarifies. "Kasi mutual understanding namin 'yon sa napi-feel na namin that time na nangyayari sa relationship namin. Ako na ang nag-initiate and nagsabi sa kanya ng scenario na siguro mas maganda kung maghiwalay na lang muna kami. Dahil nakikita at nararamdaman na rin naman namin na wala na rin kaming time para sa isa't isa.



He adds, "That time kasi, 'pag nagkikita kami, three weeks to a month na yung dumadaan. Kaya minsan, ang bati ko na sa kanya, ‘May girlfriend pa pala ako.' Of course, alam ko na she's been busy. Kaya nga na-realize ko na I have to give way na lang. E, si Angel kasi, when it comes to her work, she's sobrang focused din. Sobrang sipag pagdating sa trabaho niya."

And the feelings?



"I still love Angel," admits Oyo. "And she knows that. At wala kaming sinisisi sa nangyari kasi nga magkaibigan pa rin ang turingan namin at yun ang ayokong mawala."



Other ex-girlfriends.
He nurtured a relationship in the past with Anne Curtis. How different is it from his romance with Angel?



"Nung mag-break kami ni Anne, siyempre, masakit talaga 'yon," admits Oyo. "It took me two years bago naka-recover. Siyempre, mga bata pa that time. Ang thinking ko nun, 'pag nagka-girlfriend ako, yun na ang mapapangasawa ko. E, hindi naman pala ganoon ang reality ng mga bagay-bagay, especially when it comes to love. Matagal din 'yon," he said.



Angel is now being linked to Robin Padilla, Marvin Agustin, and Paolo Paraiso. Is it okay for Oyo if Angel accepts suitors now?



"Ang sabi ko naman kay Angel, if ever na 'di mag-work ang relationship namin, wala namang masama kung magpaligaw siya sa iba. Basta 'wag lang naming iwala ang friendship sa pagitan namin. Ang sa akin naman, sa mga manliligaw sa kaniya, basta alagaan lang nila si Angel at huwag nila itong sasaktan," says Oyo.

Angel will be celebrating her birthday on April 23, does he still have something in store for her?

"I might call her na lang kasi may Penduko taping ako that time," he replies.



Reconciliation in the offing. Will it be with Angel or still with Anne?



"With Anne? Ewan ko! Tanungin niyo sila ni Sam [Milby]!" he laughs.



What about his other ex, Alessandra de Rossi?



"Kami ni Alex, we're okay," he answers. "Inaasar nga ako nina Mommy at saka mga ibang relatives namin nung kasal ni Ate [Danica Sotto to Mark Pingris] kasi present daw lahat ng mga ex ko.

"Nag-uusap pa rin naman kami ni Alex. Na-touch nga ako in our recent talk nung sabihin niya na one of these days nga raw, she wants to talk to me about the things happening in her life now. E, ako lang daw yung mapapagkatiwalaan niyang sabihan with these things. And ako rin naman sa kaniya."

Like father, like son? His Dad, Vic Sotto, is very vocal in saying that he is the happiest man on earth because of his relationship with Pia Guanio. Is Oyo in good terms with his future stepmom?



"Kahit na marami nang mga babae ang na-link kay Dad, siyempre nasasaktan pa rin 'yon 'pag merong nawawala," shares Oyo. "And now that we can see how much he is so in love, masaya na kami na happy siya. Dati, nasi-share din naman sa amin ni Ate ni Dad ang mga frustrations niya with his relationships kaya alam namin ang nararamdaman niya.



"E, ngayon, si Dad masaya talaga. Alam mo naman 'yon, di ba? Sa mga may kilala sa kanya, it's a known fact na may 'sungit factor' talaga siya. Pero ngayon, parang hindi na namin nakikita yun sa kanya.



"And one thing more, tigil na siya sa yosi. Dun kami nagulat. Yun ang isang change sa kaniya na napansin namin. Tuwing dinner kasi 'yan, after niya kumain, nakahanda na sa tabi niya yung yosi and ashtray. Ngayon, wala na.

"Pati banyo tsine-check ko kung meron dun, wala na. Nung una, akala namin hindi lang siya nagyo-yosi when Pia's around. Tigil na pala talaga. At saka masarap na siyang kausapin, nag-mellow na. Kaya alam ko, he's really happy. Kasi, maalaga naman si Pia sa kaniya," says Oyo.



Is Oyo willing to do a similar sacrifice for the next girl who would come into his life?



"Basta naman mahal mo ang isang tao, hindi mo na iniisip o tatanungin ang sarili mo kung isa-sacrifice mo ba ang isang bagay o hindi. Basta mangyayari na lang, di ba?" he explains.



True. And his sacrifice of giving Angel all the breathing space she can enjoy is one true thing that he gave her, and hopefully, will eventually get them back together in the end.
