When the rumored confrontation between former sweethearts Jake Cuenca and Roxanne Guinoo became news, the name of Bea Alonzo was mentioned as the cause. The argument allegedly happened when ASAP '08 had a show in Guam, U.S.A. (Click here to read to read related article.)
While Jake keeps mum about it and Roxanne denies the report, Bea insists that she knew nothing about it until they all returned to Manila.
Following the press conference for her Belo Essentials endorsement yesterday, October 30, at Steaktown Restaurant on Sgt. Esguerra, Quezon City, Bea openly talked to the media about the issue, even though there was an earlier reminder to the media not to ask personal questions.
The I Love Betty La Fea actress said, "Lagi ko naman sinasabi 'yon, dapat hindi na dina-drag ang pangalan ko. Kasi as far as I'm concerned, wala naman akong alam doon sa nangyari sa kanila. Wala akong nakita, wala akong ginawa.
"Buti na lang, talaga sobrang linis, kasing linis ng damit ko ang linis ng kalooban ko, at guilt-free talaga. Wala naman talaga akong ginagawa. So, alam mo 'yon, hindi naman siya nagiging frustration sa akin because I know the truth."
For Bea, this issue should not bother her since she was not on the scene. However, she could not just stay away from it since people are always asking her about the rumored "bugbugan" issue.
She said, "Medyo nakaka-frustrate lang whenever people ask me about it because, siyempre, I feel bad na nadadawit ang pangalan ko. At the same time, parang ito na naman, another negative ano na naman, 'tapos kaming dalawa na naman ni Roxanne ang involved. Bakit lagi na lang pinagkukrus ang landas namin? Sana, next time na pagkrusin ang landas namin, sana sa maganda naman."
As she did in previous interviews, Bea reiterated that her communication with Jake has lessened even before the show of ASAP '08 in Guam. "Even before Guam kasi hindi na kami ganun kadalas mag-usap," she said.
"NAAPEKTUHAN AKO." Although Bea said she tries to ignore the rumors, she admitted to being affected whenever her name is dragged in issues she is not a part of.
The 21-year-old actress said, "Hindi naman ako ipokrita, siyempre naapektuhan ako, that really happens. Kasi 'yong mga naiisip ko, ganito ba talaga ang nangyayari? Kasi pareho ko naman silang hindi nakikita na ganun."
She also did not believe that the incident between Jake and Roxanne really happened. "Una, hindi talaga ako naniniwala kasi kahit papaano magkakapamilya kami sa Star Magic. Hindi ko sila nakikita na ganun silang dalawa. Naapektuhan ako, pero kailangan minsan protektahan mo rin ang sarili mo. I have to be careful na minsan may mga bagay na iisipin mo, ‘Makakatulong ba ito sa pagkatao mo as of the moment or hindi?' Parang, ‘Will it work out?'"
Did Bea think Jake and Roxanne were capable of a scene like this?
"I don't know," answered Bea. "I can't really comment on that because I'm not in the position to comment on that or to say anything on that. Kasi pagdating ko na lang dito, at saka ko lang narinig, so wala ako sa posisyon para magsabi ng kahit na ano."
After hearing about the rumor, was she able to talk with either Jake or Roxanne?
She replied, "Hindi pa. Kasi feeling ko rin naman, hindi rin naman ako ang dapat mag-approach, kasi parang magmumukhang guilty. Siyempre, parang if they wanna talk to me, I'm open. If they want to clear things with me, I'm open."Pero hindi ako 'yong mag-i-initiate kasi, di ba, parang ang weirdo naman. Baka mamaya masamain pa nilang pareho, di ba? So, parang ang sabi ko nga, dinidistansya ko na lang ang sarili ko sa mga bagay na 'yan."
