Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Victor Aliwalas sa presscon ng bagong afternoon soap ng GMA-7, ang Faithfully, noong June 11 sa Studio 7 ng Kapuso Network.
Tinanong namin siya sa balitang ikakasal na raw sila ng karelasyong si Liz Almoro, na ex-wife ng TV host na si Willie Revillame.
“Wala, e. No tsismis, I didn’t hear that. People are asking?" tanggi niya sa balita.
Pero sila pa rin ba ni Liz?
“Yeah, yeah. Matagal na kami, e. Almost two years na kami, e.”
Baka kaya nababalitang ikakasal na sila dahil medyo matagal na silang magkarelasyon?
“Yes, yes. Everybody keeps asking ’coz everything’s going great.
“Talagang masaya kami. We get along really well and we’re happy.
“So siyempre, you know, we wanna eventually work towards that. Hopefully in our future plans.
“The fact that we both mentioned it and want it, it’s a great thing. So sana. Sana in the Lord’s time.”
Puwede na silang pakasal ni Liz?
“Yeah, yeah,” nakangiti niyang sabi.
Annuled na raw ang kasal ni Liz kay Willie Revillame.
WEDDING DATE? So, kailan nila plano magpakasal—this year or next year?
“We’ll see, we’ll see...
"I don’t wanna put a timeline on anything. But like I said, basta masaya kami.
“And in God’s time, when everything’s right, it will happen," sabi ni Victor.
Ready naman daw si Victor na pakasalan na si Liz.
“Yeah, yeah. Ready ako, ready ako, so we’ll see. We’ll see.”
ENCOUNTER WITH WILLIE? Nagkaroon ba ng pagkakataon na nagkita sila ni Willie?
“No, no, no. Actually, we were both at the same event a long time ago—a Red Cross event sa Makati Shangri-La, pero iyon lang. Iyon lang.”
Malayo raw sila sa isa’t isa.
“We’ve never had contact.”
Okay naman daw si Victor at ang six-year old son nina Willie at Liz na si Juan Emmanuel o Juamme.
Sabi ng Kapuso talent, “Actually, I tell this to all the press, in privacy and in fairness to Liz’s son, I don’t really want to discuss it kasi bata pa siya, kawawa naman siya.
“But I’ll say this, we get along great and everything’s good.
“Siyempre would we be two years if…di ba?
“That’s all I wanna say about that, kasi talagang intimate to my heart, pero just to let you know we get along great.”
Ayon pa kay Victor, “Alam n’yo po, hindi talaga ako showbiz.
“What we have is a very quiet fun life. You know, just tahimik na life and we cherish that.”
Kung halimbawang hindi sinasadya ay magkasalubong sila ni Willie, magiging okay kaya ang sitwasyon?
“Sa totoo lang, I wasn’t even in the country when they were together. I moved here 2008.
“I mean, past is past, so I can’t really say anything more.
"So, iyon lang, I didn’t even know. Basta masaya kami.”
May nadi-discover pa ba siya kay Liz na hindi niya alam dati?
“Siyempre every day, you find out new things about the person you love and the person you’re in a relationship with.
“And everything’s good, everything’s good.”
FIGHTING TEMPTATION? Paano nila napapangalagaan ang relasyon nila—si Victor ay nasa showbiz, maraming magagandang babae, maraming tukso?
“Para sa akin, I won’t enter a relationship or I won’t be with somebody if I don’t feel that I can be one hundred percent faithful to that person.
“When I’m in a relationship, I dedicate everything… and when I love somebody, iyon lang talaga.
“I don’t find any interest or feel anything for anybody else.
“That’s who I am when I’m in a relationship.
“And this is the longest relationship I’ve had.
“I mean, siyempre in college, high school... even when I was working before, I didn’t take things seriously.
“Siyempre I’ve had relationships before, pero ito yung pinaka-serious.
“Hindi naman yung first serious, but I mean yung pinakamatagal.
“The most serious and like what I said, if I’m in a dedicated relationship, iyon na yun.
“Siyempre if you’re happy, di ba, why would you go anywhere else?
“If you’re happy, why would you risk or even consider ruining that happiness?”
Dagdag niya, "Hindi naman talaga ako showbiz, tahimik ako, e.
“Kung gusto ko ng tsismis siyempre, I’ll be… lay low talaga ako, e.
“Dire-diretso ang soaps ko, pero sabi ninyo kanina, parang ’I haven’t seen you around.’
“Kasi lahat yung mga soaps ko, panghapon. Hindi ako maingay, wala akong intriga, sobrang busy ako.
“May iba akong trabaho na hindi ko kailangan talaga yung tsismis.
“Basta diretso lang ako dito sa showbiz. Okay naman."
