Nagsalita si Gab Valenciano hinggil sa pahayag ng estranged wife niyang si Tricia Centenera na isa umano sa dahilan ng kanilang paghihiwalay ay ang pagkakaroon niya ng relasyon sa ibang babae.
Pahayag ng dancer-musician, “I don’t really wanna comment on what she said or what came out of the press, but all I can say is that I had my fair share of mistakes.
“I’ve had my fair share of shortcomings and pinag-usapan din namin yun.
“All I can say is that I’m trying to leave it at 2016.
"Para kumbaga, 2017 is a brand new year, even for her. She’s also doing great things with her life.
“Parang I believe na mistakes are meant to happen, to reflect, and then to move forward.
"And that’s where I am at the moment, which is to move forward."
Sa kabila ng paghihiwalay nila, nananatiling magkaibigan sina Gab at Tricia.
Saad ni Gab tungkol sa estado ng relasyon nila ni Tricia, “I feel so blessed that I can actually contact her and she can contact me comfortably. Walang malisya, walang strings attached.”
Nasa estado raw sila na nagpapaalam sa isa’t isa kung maaari na silang mag-date ng ibang tao.
“We’ve actually talked about seeing other people.
"There’s also that openness na I said, ‘Is it okay if I start dating?’
"Tapos siya din nagtanong sa akin, ‘Is it okay if I start dating?’
"So, we’re at that stage already na okay."
Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Gab sa press conference ng I Can Do That, ang upcoming reality show ng ABS-CBN kung saan kasama si Gab.
LOVE WAS NOT ENOUGH. Kaugnay naman ng paghihiwalay nila ni Tricia, sinabi ni Gab na hindi sapat ang pagmamahal para magsama sila.
“Love is not enough without its brothers and sisters: understanding, patience, perseverance, faithfulness, trust.
"Pag wala lahat yun, in terms of support, love is not enough.
“In this case, love really needed all the support.
"Tapos, long distance pa kami, she lived here and I lived in the US. So, there’s also that factor."
Patuloy ni Gab, “But I don’t regret it I loved her.
"I vowed to be with her for the rest of my life.
"Sadly and unfortunately, it did not end up that way.
“But, at the end of the day, I just wish her the best talaga.”
Hindi na ba niya mahal si Tricia?
Tugon ni Gab, “Mahal ko pa rin siya.
"I love her in terms of I want to see her succeed, I want to see her well, and I will do everything in my power to help support that.
“But I cannot say that I’m still in love anymore.”
SHOWBIZ COMEBACK. Nagsisilbing showbiz comeback ni Gab ang I Can Do That.
Dahil mahilig sa extreme sports, excited daw siyang gawin ang mga hamon sa reality show.
Aniya, “Sobra akong natsa-challenge dito.
“Yesterday nag-rehearsal kami at di ko magawa ang ipinapagawa sa akin. Sobrang frustrated ako.
"So it’s a good feeling na natsa-challenge ako."
Makakasama ni Gab sa show ang fellow I Candidates niyang sina Cristine Reyes, Pokwang, Arci Muñoz, Sue Ramirez, JC Santos, Wacky Kiray, at Daniel Matsunaga.
Magsisimula ang show sa Sabado, March 11.
