Back from L.A. for the Eat Bulaga! event, Pauleen Luna faced Startalk hosts Joey de Leon and Lolit Solis to tackle issues about ex-boyfriend Sherwin Gatchalian and entertainment reporter Lhar Santiago. First off was about Lhar. Joey told Pauleen that Lhar was not even going to ask anything about Sherwin. Did Pauleen just follow her showbiz instincts?

"Sa totoo lang," Pauleen admitted, "natakot talaga ako. Yun talaga ang feeling ko na natatakot ako na magsalita ako ng hindi ko naman talaga dapat masabi and because I'm emotional, masabi ko...then after a few months babawiin ko. Natakot ako sa questions na ayoko marinig muna. Sabi din ng daddy ko na sana huwag munang pag-usapan and let everything settle down first."

"Bakit iniiwasan mong pag-usapan si Sherwin?" Lolit asked. "Sa pamamagitan ni Joey..."

"Ayun na nga po," Pauleen laughed, "na-corner po ako!"

"Bakit nga ba kayo nag-break?"

Pauleen was quite hesistant. She answered, "E, kasi po, uhm...marami po, e. Kulang sa oras. ‘Tapos, mga maliliit po na bagay. Mga differences."

Joey then shared his possible insight on the matter. He said, "Sa tingin ko, dahil bata pa, e. Hindi kaya dahil doon?"

"Bakit, "Lolit contradicted, "'Pag 35 years old na ba hindi na mahilig sa Disneyland?"

"Bakit, ikaw ba nagdi-Disneyland ka pa?" Joey automatically shot back.

"Hindi, ang ibig kong sabihin, halimbawa magkasama sila ni Sherwin. Puwede silang parehong pumunta sa Disneyland."

"Baka ang gusto ni Sherwin, e, medyo mature ng kaunti," Joey said.

Concerning Sherwin, what is their status? Is it just a cool-off or more serious?

"Wala na po talaga," Pauleen revealed. Seeing the shocked look on Lolit's face, Pauleen added, "Well, there's always hope on everything. We are not naman closing our doors. Magkaibigan naman kami at nag-uusap naman kami. Maganda naman ang pinagsamahan namin at hindi kami nag-break dahil third party or kung ano man."

Joey asked, "Tatangap ka pa ba ng manliligaw pagkatapos ng relasyon niyo?"

"Masyado pa pong fresh at hindi ko pa masyadong iniisip yun," Pauleen replied. When Joey asked what her message was for her ex, Pauleen said, "I'm so glad that he is okay. And, kung ano man yung nangyari at mangyayari, at nangyayari, I just hope that it is the best for everyone."

THE ISSUE WITH LHAR SANTIAGO. Changing the subject from the matters of the heart, Joey moved on to the issue between Pauleen and entertainment reporter Lhar Santiago. He said that Pauleen texted Lhar after the latter aired in his sentiment in the morning show Unang Hirit. But, in Joey's words, "Hindi siya nagreply. Aba, nag-inarte naman si Lhar. How do you intend to patch things up?"

"Ako naman po, e, I'm very apologetic with what I did and like what I said, natakot lang talaga ako na ma-interview na hindi pa ako ready magsalita. And, tinext ko po siya na pasensiya na po, hindi lang ako ready. Uhm...kakausapin ko po si Tito Lhar."

Not used to inviting reporters to air their side of an issue, Joey laughed, "Parang nakakatawa ito. Lhar, bukas ang pinto namin sa Startalk." He was laughing before he could finish.

So what is her message to Lhar?

"Kay Tito Lhar, pasensiya na talaga kung na-hurt ko man kayo, e, hindi ko intensiyon yun. At sa lahat na din ng kaibigan ko at kaibigan kong reporters na hindi ko na-entertain, e, pasensiya na talaga."
