Ever since Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus ended last June, fans have been wondering if Big Winner Ejay Falcon and Valerie Weignmann would become a couple outside of Kuya’s house. ABS-CBN.com spoke to Valerie during the taping of the ABS-CBN Christmas Special at the Araneta Coliseum last December 16 where the ex-teen housemate revealed that she and Ejay have decided to remain just friends for now. “Okay naman kami. We’re still close friends pero he’s not courting me na. We both thought it’s better to be friends na lang muna kasi you cannot say if a relationship will work at this time. For me kasi it takes time to fall in love. Love can wait naman, we’re still young.”
Ejay, a half-French copra worker from Mindoro, professed his love for Valerie inside the PBB house through the Pinoy tradition of harana. The young lad then decided to get serious with his courtship of the Filipino-German beauty when they left the PBB house. Valerie told ABS-CBN.com that she is happy that her friendship with Ejay went on even after PBB. However, when she realized that there’s no need to rush into a relationship, she and Ejay agreed to stay as friends.
Valerie will be staying in the Philippines for the holidays, far from her mother and sister in Germany. “Malungkot kasi mom ko at my sister nasa Germany and hindi ko sila makakasama this Christmas. Kasama ko ngayon is my lola and a family friend of my mom. I’m masaya din naman to be here in the Philippines. The last time I spent Christmas here was when I was ten-years old pa lang. Here in the Philippines lahat ng tao masaya kapag Christmas. Everywhere you go may lights, may mga Christmas songs, and I’m a part of the ABS-CBN Christmas Special.”
