Actress Meryll Soriano denies tabloid reports saying she was dating a guy during the shoot of her newest film in Palawan.
"I go out with my friends," explained Meryll in a taped interview on The Buzz shown yesterday, March 23. "Madami akong naging kaibigan sa mga shooting, ganyan. Nakakatawa nga 'yang mga tsismis na 'yan."
The actress also reasoned that with her new duties as a mom to her six-month-old son Elijah, she does not have time to look for someone who would be her son's dad. Meryll was married to actor Bernard Palanca but they split while she was still pregnant with their son.
"Iba ang mga priorities ko ngayon," she said. "Hindi naman sa wala akong time, pero hindi lang siya part ng listahan ng mga kailangan kong gawin. Walang katotohanan na may boyfriend ako. Hindi pa ako ready for any relationship."
To prove that she is not dating anyone right now, Meryll said: "Mag-e-entertain ako ng suitors kung meron. Pero since wala, wala akong ine-entertain."
HANDS-ON MOM. Meryll also described her experience as a first-time mother. In fact, she admitted that she is still learning the skills of motherhood.
"Heto nanay na nanay na," Meryll proudly said. "Nag-i-start nang maging busy kaya natututo pa lang ako ngayon sa motherhood. Tinutulungan ako ng mama ko to be responsible.
"Hands-on ako, e, kasi wala pa kaming yaya. So, ayun, ako ang nagpapaligo, nagpapatulog, gumigising sa madaling araw para magtimpla ng dede."
Meryll then described her son Elijah, who was baptized last March 16, by saying, "Priceless gift itong [si Elijah], blessing talaga, sobrang nae-enjoy ko."
The actress also mentioned how spoiled her first child is to her parents Bec-Bec Soriano and Willie Revillame.
For her mom, Meryll said, "Siyempre first, e, first apo ng mama ko so spoiled sa aming lahat, dito sa bahay."
This was also the case for the Wowowee host Willie, who was very excited with his first grandchild. "Naku, isa pa 'yan!" exclaimed Meryll. "Diyos ko, baliw na baliw 'yang si Papa kay Eli. Tumatawag siya sa akin para kumustahin si Eli, magpapadala ng kung anu-ano."
RELATIONSHIP WITH BERNARD. Meanwhile, The Buzz also asked Meryll an update about her relationship with Bernard. She honestly answered, "Actually, hindi pa kami nagkakausap ni BJ. Pero yung mom ni BJ, lagi kaming nagkakausap. 'Tapos laging nagpapadala ng milk, ng mga diapers."
The actress added, "The last time I saw him [BJ] yung nanganak ako and hindi pa kami nag-usap from that time."
Meryll said that based on the information she knows, Bernard is now outside the country. Then, she said, "Siguro I'm giving him time also to think about things. Siyempre yung nangyari naman sa amin hindi madali, di ba? So, I'm sure nag-iisip-isip din yun."
