Live na sinagot ng Malaysian actress-model na si Carmen Sooang mga intrigang ikinakabit sa kanya sa The Buzz noong Linggo, November 23. Sainterview ni Kris Aquino, isa-isang binigyang linaw ni Carmen ang mgakontrobersiyang kinasasangkutan niya.
Bago ang interview ay ibinalita muna ni Kris angpagbabago ng timeslot ng ABS-CBN teleserye na Kahit Isang Saglit, napinagbibidahan nina Carmen at Jericho Rosales. Pinaaga na ang timeslot nitokaya kasunod na siya ng I Love Betty La Fea. Nag-switch sila ng oras ng PinoyFear Factor na pinakahuli nang mapapanood ngayon sa Primetime Bida.
Inamin din ni Kris na ibinabalita niya sa kanyang K-Text nafan talaga siya ng Kahit Isang Saglit. Maging ang family raw niya, kabilang na angkanyang ina na si dating Pangulong Cory Aquino ay sumusubaybay sapinagbibidahang teleserye ni Carmen.
Kaya ang unang tanong ni Kris kay Carmen ay, "Are you happyna ang daming Pinoy talaga ang kinilig, natuwa, at nagandahan sa proyektoninyo?"
Hindi agad nakasagot si Carmen dahil hindi niya maunawaanang ilang Tagalog na salita na sinabi ni Kris. After ipaliwanag ni Kris saEnglish ay saka sumagot si Carmen.
"I'm so happy and thank you to you for being so supportiveall this time. And especially thank you to your mom, former President CoryAquino. Thank you so much. And thank you to every one for requesting an earliertimeslot. Finally, our wishes are granted and I'm so happy that there will bemany, many more viewers. The coming weeks will be extremely exciting,"pasasalamat ni Carmen.
Pagkatapos nito ay sinimulan na ni Kris ang pang-iintrigakay Carmen. Ayon kay Kris, noong una, parang ang naging branding kay Carmen ayinagaw niya si Jericho kay Heart Evangelista. Pero napatunayan naman ng lahatna hindi naman ito totoo. Sabi pa ni Kris, makikita kay Carmen na sweetsiya at hindi malandi. Ipinagpasalamat naman ito ni Carmen.
ON JOHN LLOYD CRUZ & JERICHO ROSALES. Dumako na ang pagtatanong ni Kris tungkol kay John LloydCruz. Sinabi ni Kris na pareho angnaging stylist nila sa kanilang separate photo shoots, si Carmen for PetitMonde at si Kris ay sa isa niyang bagong endorsement. Ang stylist na tinutukoynila ay si Liz Uy, ang girlfriend ni John Lloyd.
Sabi ni Kris, parang imposible naman daw na makikipagtrabahosi Liz kay Carmen kung feeling nito ay nakikipag-flirt si Carmen sa boyfriendniya. Kaya pinagpaliwanag ni Kris ang Malaysian actress kung ano talaga angkatotohanan sa lumabas na balita na nakita raw silang magkasamang kumakain niJohn Lloyd sa Trinoma Mall.
"It was totally innocent," sabi ni Carmen. "It was mybirthday and I was leaving that night. I was in Trinoma and I called up afriend of mine. She greeted me and asked me if I have time to see her. And sheis with John Lloyd. And then we had lunch."
Is your friend working in ABS-CBN?
So, your friend is with John Lloyd?
"Yes, that's right."
So, they are in Trinoma already?
Kuwento ni Carmen, "I was actually catching up with my shopping, buying somestuff, since I'm already leaving that night. And then she said thay haven't hadlunch. 'Okay, let's have lunch,' I said. And she happens to be with him [JohnLloyd]. I didn't know that until I saw her. She asked if I'm sure it's gonna beokay. I said, yeah.
"I don't think something innocent like that can be blown outof proportion. The last thing that I would want to be is to be dragged intoanother accusation like that," pahayag niya.
Ipinaliwanag naman ni Kris kay Carmen, tulad din ngginawa niyang pagpapaliwanag kay Liz Uy, na kapag nakita ng mga tao angdalawang stars na magkasama kahit na may iba pa silang kasama, hindi napapansinin ng mga tao ang civilian na kasama nila. Ang nakikita lang ng mgamata ay yung dalawang stars na magkasama na mas magandang gawan ng kuwento.
"That is still one thing that I haven't got used to in thePhilippines. It's not something I think about in Malaysia," sabi ni Carmen.
Ayon kay Kris, John Lloyd feels bad about the issue kasiyung spirit ng pakikipagkaibigan ay nawawala. Nagiging awkward tuloy angsituation.
"Yeah," pagsang-ayon naman ni Carmen.
Did Jericho react?
"No, he didn't!" sabay tawa ni Carmen.
Are you friends?
Do you have communication? Do you text each other?
"In some way," sagot ni Carmen. "When I left, I was doing amovie in Malaysia. And he was also doing a movie here. So, a little ofcommunication. We text a little bit. I said, ‘I'm here in the Philippines.' Andhe said, ‘Have a good time.'"
Hiningi naman ni Kris ang kumpirmasyon kay Carmen tungkol sapagkakaroon ng follow-up project niya with Jericho ulit, pero this time withKristine Hermosa.
"That's right. I think it came out a few days ago. I will beworking on a big project next year with Jericho and Kristine Hermosa. I'mexcited!"
So, it's a triangle?
"Yes, it's a triangle."
What about with John Lloyd?
"Well, with John Lloyd... I'm involved in a movie with himwhich will be shown next year. It will be with one of your favorite directors,Direk Chito Roño."
You worked with Liz, and she said you were super nice?
"She's very nice also."
What are you going to tell her? Because, you know, as agirlfriend, even if you want to ignore the news, it will still affect her. Andyou're a girl, I'm sure you know what I'm trying to say.
"Yeah, we talked about it before and she was cool. It is notfor me to explain anything to her. It's just nothing to explain. But she spoketo me, ‘You know, you are being gossiped with my boyfriend?' And then shecommented, ‘Don't worry, you'll get used to it.' That was really cool of her.She was very professional and very, very good with her craft. And very, verynice to me."
Out si Jericho, out si John Lloyd, who is she dating?
"Nobody since the last time I saw."
Why is it somebody as pretty as you, sasabihin na lang wala?
"Wala. It's true. I have no time. I don't think I have timeto meet any one to ask me out on a date. And I don't go on a date. Not rightnow. Hopefully, next year I have better luck."
At nagpasalamat na si Kris kay Carmen at sinabi pang thePhilippines is so in love with her.
"I love being here, getting used to work here. I hope I willnever get used to all the gossips. It's a bit crazy. I'll stay out of it."
No, if you're a star you can't stay out of it.
"I'll be a different one."At nag-one liner pa si Kris bago tuluyang tapusin anginterview kay Carmen, "Akala lang po niya ‘yon."
