Lorna Tolentino's youngest son Renz Fernandez finally speaks up on his rumored romance with beauty queen Carlene Aguilar. Carlene, who was interviewed by Startalk last week concerning the rumored love-link with Renz, already said her piece concerning the issue. This time, it was Renz's turn to speak up.
"Wala. Actually, pinagtatawanan lang namin, e," Renz told Startalk. "Hindi ko nga alam kung paano nangyari yun, e. Nagulat lang ako."
Carlene, in a separate interview, added, "Una siyempre, noong na-issue, parang ako pa ang nag-text sa kanya na, ‘Uy, natsitsismis tayo!' Sabi niya, ‘Talaga? Ano sabi mo?' Siyempre, sinabi ko na kaklase lang kami at pinagtanggol ko siya. Kasi alam ko naman na hindi siya magsasalita."
It seems the rumor started with their being classmates, as Renz explained. "Hindi naman kami sobrang close, pero siguro mas close in the sense na every Friday nagkikita kami, kasi gumagawa kami ng project," he said.
"Si Renz, bata pa masyado para sa akin," Carlene commented. "Pero nakakatuwa siya at makulit."
Well, sometimes friends end up as lovers. Both single as of the moment, is there a possibility that Renz and Carlene might end up together?
"Wala, friends lang talaga," Renz directly said.Carlene, for her part, agreed by saying, "Ayoko isipin yun kasi okay na friends at ayoko magkaroon ng wall sa amin dahil hindi matutuloy ang friendship. Ngayon, mas comfortable kami sa isa't isa at relax lang. Ganoon lang."
