Two weeks ago sa Showbiz Central, naging guest si Rachelle Ann Go sa bagong segment ng talk show na "Behind The Wall" kung saan naitanong sa kanya kung totoong naging biktima siya ng verbal abuse from an ex-boyfriend.
Di naman itinanggi ni Rachelle na sa mga away nila ng isang ex, may mga pagkakataon na napagsalitaan siya nito ng masasakit, na hindi na lang niya daw ininda para hindi maapektuhan ang pagtingin niya sa sarili.
Bagamat hindi naman pinangalanan sa episode kung sino ang tinutukoy niya, marami ang nag-assume na ito ay ang huli niyang boyfriend na si Gab Valenciano. Kaya the following Sunday, May 16, agad naming hiningan ng reaksiyon si Gab sa set ng ASAP XV kunsaan dating magkasama ang dalawa bago lumipat si Rachelle sa GMA-7 at naging part ng Party Pilipinas.
GAB'S REACTION. Ang sabi ni Gab:
"Honestly, I really have no comment about that. I let go of the issue, tapos na ako dun, that chapter is done. Whatever happened there was done. I'm glad it happened kasi I learned from it. But if you're talking about fights and arguments, sa lahat ng relationships, nangyayari yun. I have nothing to say bad about Rachelle. We just didn't see eye to eye, it didn't work out, so move on...
"I'm not denying that maybe yes, I did really abuse her kasi siyempre minsan pag nagagalit ka, you tend to say things dahil galit ka and it's both parties. Siguro all I can say right now is that, let's just the drop the whole issue na lang, it's been how many months na rin and I'm very happy now, I'm happy."
Ang reaksiyon niya sa pagsisiwalat ni Rachelle Ann ay "not naman hurt. Nalaman ko ito kasi people were telling me through Twitter, Facebook, sinasabi nila sa akin kung bakit ko raw ginanun si Rachelle. For me, it's right for the girl to be the one exposing these things whether it's true or not. Parang respect for a girl, siya na lang, she can say what she wants. If it's true, it's true and if it's not true, it's not true. But all I can say is that I don't get hurt. I felt bad lang na why did it have to come up pa?
"Di naman offended, I've always told myself that in a relationship, it's you and the person, it doesn't matter what other people think. If people want to think bad about me, if people wants to say bad things about me, it's not a problem. Alam ko namang di totoo, I know what's true. I know what I did, I know what happened between us, I know the things she did, I know the things I did, di ko na ilalabas, but all I can say is that I'm ok, I'm fine, I'm not offended.
"People messaged me through Twitter, 'Why did you do this to Rachelle?' It's nakaka-stress coz masaya na ako. Parang I'm ok now, I've moved on, she's moved on and it's no issue anymore tapos biglang papasok ang mga ito. It's a disturbance sa buhay ko."
FOR PUBLICITY? Anong naging reaction ng kanyang mga magulang na sina Gary Valenciano at Angeli Pangilinan-Valenciano?
"My dad didn't say anything about it. My mom just said, 'Showbiz.' You got together for showbiz tapos the fact na lumipat siya, they're looking for stories siyempre, not that she's a newbie at Seven. I don't know if they're trying to put up a new story about us pero ang tagal na kasi nito, so I don't understand why this interview had to happen."
Sa kabila ng lahat, Gab admitted to us na nami-miss pa rin niya si Rachelle.
"Ako, I've accepted it. It's not about hurt, it's more of that I miss her as a friend coz we're friends first. She was in ASAP, I was in ASAP. As a friend, nakaka-miss dahil umalis siya but if you're talking being in a relationship, it took a while but I've moved on."
FAMILY CONCERT. Pinag-usapan din ang tungkol sa kanyang showbiz career at dito ay masayang ibinalita ni Gab ang papaganda pa niyang career sa ABS-CBN at isang big concert na pinaghahandaan ng Valenciano family.
"Very excited for the future projects that's been coming up and I'm very excited kasi I've been able to contribute to ABS even more on the next few months. We're holding a presscon next week. It's going to be a surprise but it has to do with acting.
"Matutuloy na talaga yung album ko and it's a secret but since I'm telling to you now, we're planning to do a Valenciano concert. We're planning and hoping Araneta Coliseum this year, hopefully December."
