The cool Christmas breeze seems to be melting Lolit Solis's tough stance against actors Piolo Pascual and Sam Milby.
"Gusto ko naman talagang makipag-usap kina Piolo at Sam kasi saan ba pupunta ‘to, di ba? Wala naman. Ano bang mapapala ko? Ano din mapapala nila?" she said in a taped interview with GMA-7's news program, 24 Oras.
Lolit was referring to the court case filed against her by Piolo and Sam following an article she wrote in her Pilipino Star Ngayon column on October 15 saying that she caught the two cozily whispering to each other in the coffee shop of the Sofitel hotel. While seemingly a harmless write-up, the two heartthrobs accused Lolit of maliciously reviving the gay issue against them.
The talent manager-host reiterated that she does not harbor ill feelings against the two actors since she doesn't know Piolo and Sam personally. Lolit is more affiliated with GMA-7 while Piolo and Sam are both part of ABS-CBN's stable of talents.
Given the opportunity, Lolit told Lhar Santiago that she'd gladly accept an invitation for reconciliation and would even go out of her way to set the venue.
"Halimbawa kung sasabihin nilang willing silang makipagkita sa akin, talagang ako pa ang mag-aano kung saan ko sila puwedeng imbitahin," Manay Lolit humbly quipped.
Interestingly, two key political figures—Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim and Senate President Manny Villar—have reportedly advised Lolit to settle the issue, saying that the Yuletide season might just provide the right ambience.
"Ako naman ay mas gusto ko na mas konti ang problema sa mundo. Tamang-tama itong Kapaskuhan, e, magandang tiyempo," explained Manny Villar in a separate interview. Villar also expressed his willingness to act as mediator between the warring parties.
Joji Alonso, lawyer of Sam and Piolo, never ruled out the possibility of a peaceful settlement but took note that such scenario would still depend on Lolit's actions.
Lolit's Christmas wish is a no-brainer: "Sana maayos yung sa amin nina Piolo at Sam kasi mabigat din 'yon, e. Mabigat din ‘yon sa loob. Saka abala ‘yon."
