Empress Schuck talks about Gerald Anderson, Enchong Dee, and Dino Imperial


Unlike other typical teenagers, Empress Schuck prefers to wait until she’s 18 before she engages in a serious relationship. “Minsan naiisip ko kapag nakikita ko yung friends ko na may boyfriend na, ‘Ano kayang feeling na mag-ganyan ako sa guy? Pero iniisip ko din yung disadvantage na bata pa ako. Kasi ayokong nasasabihan na 16 years old pa lang may BF na. Gusto ko ‘pag old enough na ako para kapag tinanong ako, ‘May BF ka? Ilang taon ka na ba?’” she reasoned.

When asked if it’s true that Gerald Anderson once courted her, Empress explained that it was just a rumor that got blown out of proportion more than a year ago. “Tuksuhan lang kasi yun sa Pilipinas Game KNB? Naisip lang talaga na gumawa ng punchline nun ni Sir Edu (Manzano) pero nakakagulat kasi hindi talaga kami magkakilala ni Gerald. Kumbaga hindi naman kami close. Tapos medyo awkward kasi pagkatapos nangyari ng issue na yun bigla kami nagkaroon ng workshop together,” she related.

Apparently, she received a lot of negative feedback from fans who thought she was out to break the Kim Chiu-Gerald Anderson love team. “Ang dami kong death threat, mga stalker, sabi mamatay na daw ako. Pero hindi ko naman sinasabi na Kimerald fans yun. Marami lang nakakarating sa akin na yung handler ko ginugulo kahit anong oras na. Nakakatakot.” Fortunately, it didn’t affect her working relationship with Kim back then. “Naging friends pa nga kami ni Kim sa workshop na yun. Pero never naming pinag-usapan na, ‘Uy yung issue ‘wag mo na intindihin yun ha.’ Alam naman kasi namin kung ano talaga yung nangyayari,” she explained.

On a lighter note, Empress also opened up about the fact that Enchong Dee and Dino Imperial tried to make a pass at her back during their Abt Ur Luv days. “Sila daw yung mga lalaking hindi nanliligaw. Kasi sabi nila, ‘Kung gusto mo, gusto ko, tayo na.’ Ganun daw yung style nila. Kasi ‘pag sinasabi mo daw na nanliligaw, pinapakita mo lang yung good side mo. ‘O sige nanliligaw ako sa ’yo lahat ng mabuti gagawin ko, sweet ako sa ‘yo. Pero ‘pag tayo na iba na kasi hindi naman na kita nililigawan.’ Hindi daw sila ganon,” she related in between laughs.

But Empress said she prefers the traditional way of courtship. “E ako pa naman napaka-Maria Clara ko. Siyempre gusto ko yung pinupuntahan sa bahay tapos nakikilala ng parents ko. Siyempre kung hindi nila gusto, ‘wag na lang din kasi yun yung sinasabi ni Mama na nanay daw ang nakaka-feel kung okay ba o nagpapakitang tao lang ang isang lalaki. Basta gusto ko magkakilala muna kami sabay na lang din ng panliligaw. Si Enchong kasi gusto niya best friend muna daw tapos yun na,” she revealed.

Si Enchong never nagpadala ng flowers. Christmas gift niya nga noon sa akin mga items from Bench. Ang sweet ‘di ba? [Si Dino naman] ayokong tumanggap sa kanya. Sabi niya, ‘Bigyan kita ng flowers.’ Sabi ko, ‘Ayoko naman ng mga ganyan.’ Ayoko din naman kasi tumanggap ng hindi ko talaga gusto ’di ba?” But it doesn’t necessarily mean that she preferred Enchong over Dino at that time. “Hindi, kasi si Enchong hindi naman kasi nagbibigay. Siya naman yung kuripot. Ikaw pa yung magsasabi na, ‘Bigyan mo naman ako ng flowers Enchong!’”

But when ABS-CBN.com prodded her about it, she eventually admitted that she used to have a huge crush on Enchong the first time she met him. “Oo nung unang-una. Pero nung naging friends na kami, friends n
