Buo ang suporta ng bagong recording artist na si Kiana Valenciano sa kanyang kuya na si Gab Valenciano, na may pinagdadaanan ngayon sa kanyang married life.
Hindi naman lihim sa publiko ang hiwalayan ni Gab at ng misis nitong si Tricia Centenera, kung kaya hindi maiwasang maging interesado ang publiko sa saloobin ni Kiana tungkol sa usaping ito.
Pahayag ng bunsong anak nina Gary Valenciano at Angeli Pangilinan, “We would watch his motorbike race.
“But he knows, he knows that I'm here for him, I told him that.
“I've let him know that I pray for him, and people make mistake naman talaga, di ba?
“I think that, just right now, he's doing the best that he can to make things right.
“And all I can do is just pray for him and hope that this eventually will get better for both of them talaga.
“I mean, it's in my heart that they fix things and work things out.
“But only time will.”
Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at ilang entertainment columnists si Kiana sa contract signing niya sa Viva Artists Agency, na ginanap sa Viva office, sa Ortigas, Pasig City, nitong Biyernes, October 14.
SIBLINGS TALK. Sa puntong ito, inalam namin kay Kiana kung nagkaroon ba ng pagkakataong nakausap niya ang kanyang Kuya Gab tungkol sa nangyari.
Sa mga lumabas kasing ulat, ang dahilan diumano ng paghihiwalay nina Gab at Tricia ay dahil sa pagkakaugnay ng kapatid ni Kiana sa iba’t ibang babae.
Pahayag ng 23-year-old newbie singer, “We've talked about some of the issues.
“Of course, there are things that he would protect me from because I'm his younger sister.
“Sure, there are certain things na hindi niya masasabi sa akin.
“Although, he has told me that some that has come out isn't true, it's been exaggerated.
“That I know, because some of the girls that were put into that list were my friends.
“And there are tweets that I saw, like, 'Lauren Reid was spotted with Gab and yada yada…’
“People don't know that I was there with Lauren, and it was a group outing.”
Sabi pa niya, “It's tough, kasi those people who know the least have the most to say talaga.
“But, you know, you just have to be strong enough to let it face you.”
GAB AND TRICIA. Dumating ba siya sa puntong kailangang may kampihan siya between Gab and Tricia?
Sagot ni Kiana, “No. The good thing about my brothers, they're not asking about that.
“They're both friends, now they're civil.
“Actually, the other day, I had lunch with Tricia after they had some work together – she and my brother.”
Diin pa niya, “They're okay.
“They've decided to be mature about it and they don't want to give the family hard time also.
“She's a part of the family, but she and I have discussed as well that she knows that he's my brother, he knows that she's my ‘ate.’
“They've never put me in a position where I have to choose between the two of them.”
Paano naman nagku-cope ang buong pamilya nila sa sitwasyong ito?
Ayon kay Kiana, “I think we're just trying our best to be there for the both of them.
“And it's hard not to take sides when you know one is hurting, and then, you know…
“But you have to remember that there are two people who are hurting.
“At this point, I'm just... I think, as a family, we’re just continuing to pray for them na lang, hoping for the best again.”
