Ara Mina and Polo Ravales came a few minutes apart at YES! Magazine's 7th anniversary and PEP's grand launch at the NBC Tent last February 28.
When Polo arrived, he joined Ara on table number 26. The TV crews immediately swarmed around them to find out if the two are back into each other's arms again. Both said that they are still friends, although they have decided to give each other space.
The two had precious time talking to each other. Ara said she is not bothered with Polo's newest movie under Seiko Films where he will plunge into a sexier role and exchange passionate love scenes with leading ladies Francine Prieto and Diana Zubiri.
Meanwhile, Ara said that her new look—she just had a haircut—has nothing to do with her "moving on" after cooling off with Polo.
"For a change lang. Kasi matagal na rin namang mahaba ang hair ko. And siguro, for my role na rin in Lupin, where I will portray the role of a nun. Para hindi mahirap ayusin ‘pag nilagyan na ng parang belo ng madre," explained Ara.
While Ara and Polo were in a deep conversation, GMA-7 artist Rhian Ramos—Richard Gutierrez's leading lady in Captain Barbell and co-star in The Promise—suddenly arrived and greeted Polo. Rhian even touched Polo's semi-bald head after giving him a kiss on the cheek. Rhian talked to Polo without a word or a look at Ara who was beside the sexy actor.
Ara felt so uneasy with the way Rhian greeted Polo. We even asked Ara if she and Rhian know each other, because as a gentleman, Polo would have introduced them to each other.
"Magkasama nga kami [she and Rhian] sa pictorial ng Lupin. At hindi talaga niya ako pinapansin o tinitingnan. Magkakasama kami sa taping. I don't know, parang hindi niya ako feel," Ara said.
"Nakakainit ng ulo ang ginawa niya na parang hindi niya ako nakita na katabi lang ako ni Polo at nag-uusap pa kami ni Polo nung lumapit siya. Nakakabastos, di ba? Nakakaasar lang ang ginawa niya. Napikon lang ako sa ginawa niya," the sexy actress added.
Ara didn't stay long to enjoy the YES! and PEP party. She excused herself because she had to go to another party (birthday of a cousin). Polo left with her but they rode on separate cars.
Ara's night didn't end in that note. A text message was sent to us regarding what Rhian did to her. She just couldn't get over the incident.
"Napikon talaga ako sa babaeng ‘yon!" she said in her text message, obviously very irritated.
