Magdadalawang taon na ang relasyon ng aktor na si Paulo Avelino, 30, at ng Filipino-Australian model na si Jodie Tarasek, 23.
Sa loob ng dalawang taon, wala raw masabi si Jodi sa pagiging mapagmahal ng nobyo.
Panimulang kuwento ni Jodie, “He’s great, he’s great. Yeah.
"I wish I could tell you something that he does to irritate me, but he is a great boyfriend."
Hindi masyadong nagkukuwento si Paulo tungkol sa kanyang nobya sa mga panayam nito noon.
Nagustuhan naman daw ni Jodi ang pagiging secretive ng boyfriend.
Saad niya, “And I kind of like it that way. I think it’s good to…
"I think that also attributes to why we’re so happy as a couple because we keep a lot of things private.
“So, I’m okay with that.”
Wala rin daw problema sa kanyang may anak si Paulo sa dati nitong girlfriend na si LJ Reyes.
“Yeah, absolutely. At first, obviously, anyone who finds out that…
"I mean, I’m young, and obviously when I first found out, ‘Oh, my God, he has a son!’
“Then you realize, it’s a child and he’s the most sweetest boy, so there’s really nothing to it.
“You wouldn’t not hang out with someone or date someone just because they have a child.
“That doesn’t make them any less of a good person.”
Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at iba pang press si Jodie sa relaunching ng Aksyon TV bilang 5 Plus sa People’s Palace restaurant, Greenbelt 3, Makati City, ngayong Huwebes ng hapon, January 10.
Si Jodie ang nagsilbing host ng nasabing event.
Magiging bahagi rin siya ng pool of sports-event hosts ng sister company ng 5 Plus, ang TV5.
Kahit nasa showbiz si Paulo, hindi raw interesado si Jodie pasukin ang mundong ginagalawan ng kanyang nobyo.
Sabi pa niya, “I think at this point in time, I’m more interested in hosting... more out of my comfort zone.
“I think I’ll leave showbiz to my partner. At this point in time, I think I’m not ready for showbiz.
“I feel, like, if I join acting, it wouldn’t be fair because I don’t know anything about acting.”
Sa darating na mga araw ay pipirma na ng kontrata sa TV5 si Jodie.
