"Ako naman kasi, may mali ako pero kilala ko din kasi yungmga fan ko na tunay na ugali nila, e," Mark said. "Hindi lang basta tagahanga.Kilala ko din tunay na pagkatao nila. So, may mali din ako na sobrang close," says Mark Herras in the midst of a rumor he has a relationship with a fan.



Last week in ShowbizCentral, an alleged coed by the name of Valerie Pornea, who claimed that sheis the girlfriend of Mark Herras, gave a statement to SC saying through text: "Sinabi ba talaga ni Mark na fan niya langako? Yun ang sabi niya? Sige, fan lang po ako. Pero may fan po ba na sinasakaysa van niya? Pinapatulog sa bahay nila pag gabi pagkatapos ng taping? Gustoniya pumunta ako ng taping—hindi ako pumapasok sa school kasi gusto niya doonlang ako. 'Tapos ngayon, fan niya lang ako?"

Mark guested on Startalk earlier today, to air his side on the issue. Hosts Joey de Leonand Mark's manager, Lolit Solis, interviewed him.

Joey asked, "Mark, may kilala ka ba talagang ValeriePornea?"

"Meron po," Mark admitted.

How did he come to know Valerie?

"Kasi po, si Val, matagal ko na siyang kilala," Markexplained. "As in noong nagsisimula pa ako sa StarStruck. ‘Tapos, siya talaga fan ko na ‘pag tapings, nandoon natalaga. Gusto ko lang i-clear na yung lumabas na issue last week, e, hindi posiya ‘yon. Kasi unang-una po, yung balita naglabas ng pictures, di ba? Kungako, maninira lang, or kung maglalabas ng ganoon, e, bakit ako mahihiya naipakita sarili ko o bakit ako hindi magpapa-interview at text lang dahil ayokolumabas sa TV? So hindi si Val ito."

In a more serious tone of voice, Mark added, "Kilala ko kungsino gumagawa."

Is Mark sure that the text sender really isn't Valerie?

"Kasi two days before ng Showbiz Central," he explained,"yung mga fan na galit doon sa love team ng Mark and Rhian [Ramos], e, sila angmga nang-aaway. So, may nag-text sa akin two days before SC, and sabi, ‘Abanganmo Showbiz Central, magpapasabog kami ng issue about diyan kay Val!' So,nangdadamay sila ng tao. Yun po ang totoo."

Is this the result of Mark being too friendly with so manypeople?

"Parang nasobrahan lang," Mark ruefully said. "Hindi namanako ma-ano na tao, e. Pala-kaibigan ako, kaya yun."

"Masasabi mo ba na fault mo din na masyado kang malapit samga tagahanga at sa ibang tao?" Joey asked.

"Ako naman kasi, may mali ako pero kilala ko din kasi yungmga fan ko, na tunay na ugali nila, e," Mark said. "Hindi lang basta tagahanga.Kialala ko din tunay na pagkatao nila. So, may mali din ako na sobrang close."

"Ano ang masasabi mo kay Valerie sa naglalabasang issue naito?" Joey asked.

"Kung si Valerie ka talaga...kung ikaw talaga ‘yan, humarap kasa camera o sa media. Punta ka sa Startalkat magpa-interview ka. Hindi ako natatakot."

"For the record," Joey followed, "single ka ba ngayon?"

"Opo naman," Mark answered.

JENNYLYN MERCADO. Joeyrelated to Mark that Mrs. Lydia Mercado, Jennylyn Mercado's mom, said that Markwas one of those who wished their condolences to her when Lydia's husband, MangRoger, passed away recently. Was he able to visit the wake?

"Hindi ako nakapunta," Mark sadly said. "Kasi may mgapersonal na problema."

Lolit suddenly blurted, "Bakit sabi sa akin ni Anna Pingolng YES! magazine na pumayag ka dawmagparetrato kasama ang baby ni Jennylyn?" Jennylyn is Mark's ex-girlfriend andshe recently gave birth to her son with former boyfriend Patrick Garcia.

"Ico-cover nila?" a surprised Mark asked. "Ano daw[concept]?"

"Father and son!" Lolit exclaimed.

"Papayag ako 'pag kaming mga ninong kasama. Pero yung solo,ayoko!" Mark protested while laughing.

Joey asked, "Nadalaw mo na ba ang baby ni Jennylyn?"

"Hindi pa," Mark answered. "kasi hindi pa ako nakakapuntakay Jen o natatawagan kasi nga siguro kailangan pa magpahinga nung tao. Si TitaLydia lang ang kausap ko at ka-text."

"Si Patrick po," Mark grinned.

"Hindi ka ba natatakot na malagyan ng kulay ang patuloy napagsuporta kay Jennlyn?" Joey asked.

"Hindi naman siguro, kasi wala naman ibig sabihin angpagtulong ko. Tumutulong lang ako," Mark replied.
