Janno Gibbs admits that he still lives with his actress wife, Bing Loyzaga, despite rumors that the couple have separated.
In a taped interview with Startalk shown last December 23, Janno said, “Magkasama pa rin naman kami sa bahay, at katulad ng sabi niya, we’re good friends. Kumbaga we still function as a family.”
Although Janno did not clearly disclose their current status as a couple, the actor said Bing is still his wife. “As of now, inaamin naman namin na ano kami…. Medyo hanggang best friends muna kami ni Bing. Siya pa rin ang asawa ko, e. I still consider her as my wife,” said Janno.
Bing seconded this statement in another taped interview. “Talagang asawa naman niya ako dahil pinakasalan naman niya ako at pinakasalan ko siya. So, talagang mag-asawa kami no matter how you put it.”
The couple also confessed that they have learned to ignore all the bad talk about them, particularly the talk about Janno being a womanizer.
“Wala, sanay na ako, e.” Janno said. “Kaya nga ang masaya... kasi at least, nanggaling na kay Bing na sanay na rin siya. Hindi na rin siya naapektuhan kasi, yun nga, open na nga kami.”
Meanwhile, Bing also said that she has cleared things with Janno’s co-host, Regine Velasquez. Rumor had it that Regine and Janno had a relationship when they did concerts together and began working in SOP (Sobrang Okey Pare), a GMA-7 Sunday noontime show.
“With Regine, everything is good already. Okay na kami, walang problema,” Bing clarified.
Both Bing and Regine met up in the SOP Christmas party held recently. Bing represented her husband, who was then in a two-week European tour with Ara Mina and Cristine Reyes.
Bing said she hoped the friendship that she and Janno now enjoy will be for good. Still in StarTalk, she asked the press not to read any more negative meaning into the relationship: “Pakiusap ‘to, kasi gusto ko na maging pangmatagalan ito. Yung hanggang naka-weelchair na ako, hanggang uugud-ugod, gusto ko magkakasama pa rin kami.”
Janno and Bing were last seen together in Eat Bulaga’s “Bulagaan” last December 23, along with other cast members of Enteng Kabisote 3: The Legend Goes On and On and On. Bing Loyzaga played the role of the villain Satana.
