"Malamig ang Pasko ko kasi last year may boyfriend ako, ngayon wala na," says IC Mendoza candidly in a December 24 interview with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal). "Ano, ewan ko ba! Iniwan ako para sa babae. ‘Yong babae sobrang ganda."
IC—son of entertainment columnist Dolly Anne Carvajal and grandson of the legendary Inday Badiday—says his ex-boyfriend, "Jordan," and he lasted for four months. "Matagal na ‘yon para sa kin."
The star of Shake, Rattle, and Roll 8 ("LRT" episode") reveals that he has a crush on his co-star Sergio Garcia. "Ang ganda ng puwet! Bilog na bilog [laughs]! ‘Tsaka mabait."
During the Parade of Stars, which is a procession of floats announcing the Metro Manila Film Festival entries, IC says, "Si Sergio hindi makakapunta dito sa float kasi nagbebenta ng paputok, kasi business nila ‘yon."
He quips, "Pang-tuition ng mga anak namin ‘yon!"
The University of Santo Tomas Advertising freshman says he is currently concentrating on his career instead of on his love life. "I date, I go out, pero wala nang permanent chorva [swardspeak for "ano"]. Work, work, work lang muna.
"May play akong dadating, Manlilinlang. Si Romnick [Sarmenta] ‘tsaka si Harlene [Bautista] ang nag-produce. Tungkol sa bading, parang Ilusyunada [a play he starred in] ko last year. Although, hindi ko pa nababasa ‘yong script. Babasahin ko pa lang next week."
