Sexy actress Katrina Halili smiled faintly asked about her reaction on the reported overseas rendezvous of Hayden Kho and popular cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo.
"No comment po," Katrina told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other entertainment reporters following the press conference of the upcoming drama-romance series Langit Sa Piling Mo held last night, May 25, at Studio 5 of GMA Network Center in Quezon City.
Katrina stressed anew that limiting her comments about Hayden remains a deliberate effort as recommended by her lawyer to avoid jeopardizing their legal battle with Kho.
Hayden is currently facing trial for allegedly violating R.A. 9262, otherwise known as the Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act. Katrina accused Hayden of videotaping their sexual encounter without consent.
A separate lawsuit was filed against Hayden's mother, Irene Kho, after she publicly pointed at Katrina as the one who introduced her son to illegal drugs. The accusation was strongly denied by the sexy actress and she filed a libel complaint against Mrs. Kho.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) initially junked the libel complaint but later reversed its decision.
"May hearing po kami sa June 3 [on the libel case]," said Katrina.
Is she anticipating a victory in the end against Mrs. Kho?
"Ayoko po magsalita ng tapos," she instantly answered. "Basta ako, masaya lang ako sa resulta ng mga pinaglalaban ko."
DRAMA VILLAIN. Katrina was generous enough, however, to entertain questions about her latest role in Langit Sa Piling Mo, where she will portray the contravida role of Aurora.
Lead star Heart Evangelista will earn Katrina's trademark villain wrath this time.
"May nakunan na kaming eksena na may tinulak akong airline janitor, tapos nakialam si Heart tapos kinonfront ko siya... 'Tsaka sa pool, nilaglag ko siya," said Katrina on some of the scenes she had with Heart.
Katrina quickly dismissed the possibility of developing an off-cam rift with Heart. It can be recalled that Katrina and Marian Rivera were rumored to be in conflict when they were still doing Marimar.
"Okay naman po kami ni Heart," assured Katrina. "Kahit nung hindi pa nag-start 'yong taping namin, sa Party Pilipinas, nagkikita na po kami."
She continued, "Lagi naman po kaming nag-uusap ni Heart. Kasi 'yong kay Marian talaga, nung start pa lang nung show, talagang hindi kami nakapag-usap. Pero nung Darna, natapos na po namin. Miscommunication lang talaga. May mga taong naninira lang talaga sa amin."
REUNION WITH MARK. Langit Sa Piling Mo will also reunite Katrina with StarStruck batchmate Mark Herras.
Mark confessed once on national television that he fell in love with Katrina during the early stages of their careers, though he never really courted the controversial actress.
"Si Mark kasi, siya talaga 'yong pinaka-close kong lalake sa StarStruck," mentioned Katrina, who intriguingly admitted having an "unawaan" with Mark in the past.
A real-life romance between Mark-Katrina looks unlikely at this point since the former is reportedly playing sweet music with Ynna Asistio.
And how about Katrina's present lovelife?
"Ayoko mag-boyfriend ngayon," she seriously said. "Gusto ko lang magtrabaho."
