Cheska Garcia denies that she's not fond of brother Patrick Garcia's girlfriend, Jennylyn Mercado.
"Okay naman si Jen sa pamilya namin. She's a very nice girl," said Cheska when cornered by Startalk during the launching of Adidas' new collection held at the Peninsula Manila in Makati City last July 16. Cheska was one of the new endorsers of the popular sports apparel brand.
The interview was aired yesterday, July 22, at Startalk.
The question was raised since there were reports that Cheska's not particularly in favor of Patrick's relationship with Jen.
The mestiza actress and model never denied though that she's not really close to Jen, not because of personal reasons but rather because of the lack of opportunity to engage in any bonding activities.
Cheska cited most instances when Jen would visit their house but she was on her way out for an engagement. Likewise, Jen's busy schedule doesn't permit her much time to spend with Patrick and his family.
But despite the lack of time, Cheska said that she's looking forward to setting a dinner date, at least, with Patrick and Jen, for them to know each other better.
As for her own personal love life, Cheska clarified that she and boyfriend, former Ateneo Blue Eagles standout Doug Kramer, have no plans of tying the knot—at least for the moment.
Both Doug and Cheska echoed that they're still too young to plunge into marriage and that they still have their respective careers to think of above anything else, especially Doug who recently filed his availability for the upcoming Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) draft.
