Bea Alonzo doesn’t think having a showbiz relationship is more difficult than a non-showbiz one. She says, "Actually, wala namang difference. I don’t think may difference, non-showbiz or showbiz. I mean, you’re both working and that’s it. Siguro yung only advantage dun ay yung naiintindihan yung kissing scenes ko, naiintindihan yung working hours ko. So yun lang yung only advantage. But disadvantages, parang wala naman. Parang mas nabibilang k


Bea Alonzo is unaffected by rumors that her most recent teleserye with John Lloyd Cruz, A Beautiful Affair, ended prematurely because of poor ratings.

In a chat with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last Friday, February 8, the Kapamilya actress says, “No. Hindi na.

"Parang feeling ko, unang-una, we’re doing our job well.

“And parang, we just came from a movie that did so well. Parang ganun lang naman siguro talaga yun.

“I mean, I’m sure everyone had their own good intentions, but it just didn’t... maybe it didn’t measure up or something.”

With the box-office turnout of The Mistress last year, the John Lloyd Bea-tandem has proven that the "magic" is still there.

This may explain why a lot of viewers were surprised that their primetime drama ended after airing for only three months.

Bea points out the busy schedule of the cast members as one of the reasons.

She explains, “Isa rin sa mga dahilan yun because John Lloyd is doing a movie with Sarah Geronimo.

“So medyo nakaapekto rin yun, kasi we were always hand-to-mouth, e. We were taping hand-to-mouth, so laging for airing.

“So nagiging problema rin yung schedule niya.

"And at the same time, I guess, baka hanggang dun lang talaga yung story nun.

“You cannot stretch it or it’s better that way. It’s better that it ended that way.”

Meanwhile, the 25-year-old actress is currently working on a movie under Star Cinema and will be taking a rest from TV dramas in the meantime.

“Kasama ko si Angel Locsin, Toni Gonzaga, marami... si Shaina [Magdayao], si Enchong [Dee]…

"Wala pa. Wala pang title,” she says about the movie.

VALENTINE PLANS. Bea is the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine’s February issue together with her beau, Zanjoe Marudo.

The actress refuses to make plans for Valentine’s Day.

She says, “Di ba, dapat lalaki yung nagpaplano?”

“So I have no plans. I’m expecting him to plan something for me.”

On her dream Valentine date, Bea reveals, “Kasi nagawa na niya for me, e.

“Actually, we weren’t together yet nung ginawa niya.

"It was a Valentine’s… actually, it wasn’t on Valentine’s Day, just before Valentine’s Day, a day before.

“So parang sinurprise niya ‘ko sa isang yacht tapos may fireworks. Kaya naman niya ako napa-‘oo.’ Chos!”

Bea considers Valentine’s Day an important occasion.

“Oo. For me, yes.

“Uhm, kasi it’s the only day of the year na talagang forced lahat ng tao to plan something romantic for their loved ones.

“But para din sa mga singles, parang, it may be a sad day for them, pero ang dami namang ways to enjoy Valentine’s Day.

“Hindi naman porke’t single ka, you won’t be enjoying Valentine’s Day.

"Marami namang ways, like spending it with your friends, with your family...”

She also admits being one of those girls who like to receive gifts.

To rank the usual gift items, Bea says, “Number three, siguro stuffed toy; number two, chocolates; number one talaga flowers.”

At this point in their relationship, Bea no longer expects Zanjoe to do grand gestures for her.

“Lalo na, magtu-two years na kami.

“So, parang alam ko na hindi naman niya kailangan gumawa ng mga bagay na yun para ipakita yung love niya for me, because I already know how much he loves me.

“So kahit na yung simple things, [yun] yung nagma-matter, like eating out or… yung simple joys. As in like watching a movie together at home, ganun.”

MAKING IT WORK. Having been together for almost two years now, how do they keep the fire burning, so to speak?

Bea replies, “I don’t know. I guess it comes out naturally. We shouldn’t force it.

“Like, kasi, di ba, ang daming books? Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, Why Do Men Love Bitches... dati I used to read all those stuff.

“Pero na-realize ko, talaga it’s between you and your boyfriend. Wala talagang handbook sa isang relasyon.

“Talagang kayo lang yung nagkakaintindihan.

"But it’s all about pleasing your partner and vice versa.”

Bea affirms, making a relationship work is no walk in the park.

She states, “Yes, a relationship is really a hard work.

“Talagang it takes so much hard work to make it work. Kasi, wala, e.

“Ang dami nating differences and yet dapat mas nangingibabaw yung commitment and yung love kesa sa differences, e.

“Like, we fight a lot. And I think it’s normal,” she confesses.

What do they usually fight about?

Bea says, “Simple things. Like, simple things, hindi siya nakasagot… hindi naman sa hindi nakasagot… sinagot niya ako in a disrespectful way or not in a proper way.

“E, siyempre, I get offended.

"Kasi minsan, parang itinuturing niya ako na man, best friend... and I’m not a man, I’m still a lady.

"Sometimes, ganun.

“Minsan, parang advantage rin yun na he trusts me that well na ganun, ganun niya ako ituring.

“Pero minsan kasi, may ganun, e, lalo na pag malapit na yung period mo, pag may PMS [pre-menstrual syndrome] ka. Ganyan.

"Sensitive kasi ako talaga.”

Is it more difficult to maintain a relationship given that they are both in showbiz?

Bea says, “Actually, wala namang difference. I don’t think may difference—non-showbiz or showbiz.

"I mean, you’re both working and that’s it.

“Siguro yung only advantage dun ay yung naiintindihan yung kissing scenes ko, naiintindihan yung working hours ko.

"So, yun lang yung only advantage.

“But disadvantages, parang wala naman.

"Parang mas nabibilang ko yung maraming advantage kesa dun sa disadvantages.

“Kasi, di ba, like, mas madali yata kasi I’m from showbiz.

"So, immediately, lahat ng tungkol sa ‘kin, alam ng lahat ng tao. And same with him.

“Parang ang hirap nga kapag non-showbiz ’cause I don’t know really kung ano ba talaga background niya or ano, or where he is.”

Bea doesn’t consider being in the public eye as a drawback of their relationship.

“Not really. It’s up to you.

“Kasi if you’re gonna give them the license to interfere with your own life…

“Parang feeling ko, kung wala ka namang masyadong ise-share about you and the other person, wala rin silang masasabi about you and the other person.

“I mean, parang feeling ko, yung mga tao, kapag binigyan mo lang sila ng lisensiya, that’s the only time they’ll interfere.”

How do they balance work and lovelife?

“I find time for him. We make time for each other. Kasi, yun talaga.

“Actually, yun siguro yung disadvantage, because nga dito sa showbiz, very flexible yung time… hindi siya talaga ano.

“We make sure na we make time for each other.

"Although, kapag talagang malapit na… halimbawa sa pelikula, malapit na yung playdate, merong time, halos one month hindi kami nagkita because I was in Europe para mag-shoot ng isang soap opera.

“Talaga naman, kahit twenty-four hours lang, iuuwi ko talaga para makita siya.

"So, yun yung mga ganung bagay.”

What was the biggest sacrifice she had to endure for the relationship?

Bea says emphatically, “Sacrifice? Do I need to sacrifice something?

“Siguro yun yung… maybe the most beautiful thing about this relationship is not having to sacrifice anything for it.

“Like, in-accept niya ako for who I am, for what I do, for what I love to do, that I love, as well.

“So parang, it’s a beautiful relationship, not having to sacrifice anything for him.”

Though it may be too early to tell, does she think Zanjoe is “the one?”

Bea answers, “Sana because ayoko na rin naman to go out and date someone else.

“I mean, mag-i-start ka na naman from zero, knowing this person, if he’s a good person. Ayoko na rin naman ng ganun.

“And he’s a very responsible man, alam mo na he’s going to be a very good father in the future.

“So, sana. Sana, pero hindi ko rin naman hawak yung mga mangyayari in the future.”

Have they talked about marriage?

“Biruan lang. Biruan.

"Natutuwa ako kapag nagkukuwento siya about sa plans niya in the future.

“Halimbawa, like building a house in the south, yung ganyan. Parang, kasama ako sa plans niya.

"So, of course, that makes me feel good.”

Bea admits having a timeline on when she wants to get married.

“Meron. Meron. Like in five years.

“But, uhm, siyempre, kagaya ng sinabi ko, hindi ko naman alam kapag dumating ako dun, hindi ko alam kung ready na ba talaga ako.

"But, hopefully, in five years.”
