Pinoy Dream Academy's Grand Star Dreamer Yeng Constantino and her family are finally moving out of their shanty located in San Jose, Taytay, Rizal. According to Yeng, they already received an eviction notice from the legal owner of the lot where their house was erected and where her family has lived for six years.
"Gusto pa sana naming ipaglaban, pero rights lang kasi ang pinanghahawakan namin," laments Yeng during the presscon of Your Song, ABS-CBN's Sunday afternoon series, last March 26, held at the TV station's 9501 Restaurant.
"Inililikas na po namin yung iba naming natitirang gamit. Pero nakabili na rin naman po ako ng lupa, doon din sa San Jose. Para kasing ayaw naming lumayo sa lugar na ‘yon."
The new episodes of Your Song will kick off on April 22 featuring Yeng's song "Cool Off" for the Maja Salvador and Jay-R Siaboc episode. Yeng will not appear on the said episode but she joined the cast in Boracay to shoot the music video of the song "Cool Off." It was the first time the singer-songwriter set foot in the beautiful island.
"Wala po akong ginawa doon [sa Boracay] kundi matulog. Tapos, nag-stroll ako sa beach, ang sarap-sarap ng feeling. Namili rin ako ng mga souvenir items para sa family," narrates Yeng.
Other press people present at the press con teased Yeng if she bought something for Jay-R. Rumor has it that Jay-R is courting Yeng.
The petite singer just looked at Jay-R who was also present at the press con, then shrugged her shoulders. And when asked if Jay-R is courting her, Yeng answered, "Nagpadala siya sa akin ng flowers, pero ayoko namang isipin na panliligaw ‘yon."
Yeng is also rumored to be a lesbian. She strongly denied it and said, "Ganito lang po talaga ako kumilos, tomboyish po at hindi tomboy. Nagkaka-crush din naman ako sa lalaki."
And who is her showbiz crush?
"Si Piolo Pascual!" said Yeng giggling. "Kapag nasa ASAP nga kami, kinikilig po talaga ako sa kanya."
To date, Yeng's collection of rubber shoes, her seemingly fashion trademark, has already numbered 50 and still counting.
"Talaga pong hilig ko ang mag-collect ng rubber shoes. Pero nag-aaral na rin akong magsuot ng high heels, kaya lang, ang sakit talaga sa paa!" said Yeng laughing.
Yeng's debut album titled Salamat has already hit the platinum mark.
