It’s been four years since Yeng Constantino emerged from Pinoy Dream Academy as its Grand Star Dreamer, but it’s only until recently that the 21-year-old admitted that she is ready to have a boyfriend. Even though she was last linked to her co-PDA scholar RJ Jimenez, Yeng said that at that time, her father would never have allowed her to have a relationship. But she has no regrets about being a dutiful daughter. “Nung kalalabas ko lang ng PDA, yung papa ko, ayaw talaga ako pag-boyfrienin noon. So nakikinig ako sa kanya. Pero on the side, may pa-text textkung kani-kanino, yung mga pa-sweet sweet, ganyan. Pero tama talaga yung tatay ko nun,” she says. So open is the talented singer that she even jokes about making a public announcement to possible suitors about it. “Ngayong 21 na ako, siguro naman puwede na ako magpaligaw. Open na talaga ako to it. So kung sino man yung gusto manligaw diyan, hindi joke lang ha!”
Yeng says a good sense of humor is the most attractive thing for her in a guy. . “Actually wala pa akong nagugustuhan ngayon pero gusto ko yung funny, yung nakakatuwa, yung kaya ako patawanin. Kahit ano, artista or non-showbiz,” she says. Yeng also stressed that it was important that her future boyfriend should be understanding of her work. “Yung simple lang naman. Kasi mahirap yung parang pagbabawalan ka sa ginagawa mo eh like yung passion ko for music. Gusto ko yung easy to get along with. Mas maganda siguro yung matagal ng kaibigan,” she adds.
One of the men being linked to her lately is her Music Uplate Live co-host Tutti Caringal. Because of their natural rapport and onscreen chemistry, fans of their show have been wondering if the two talented musicians have been seeing each other off-cam as well. “Wala namang mga ganun. Yung nakikita nilang closeness sa amin ni Tutti, dahil sa sobrang barkada lang talaga kami at saka para sa show. Nagtutukso-tuksuhan kasi nakakatawa lang din minsan, si Tutti kasi mahilig kasi sa mga, hindi naman sa babaero pero mahilig siya magpuna-puna ng mga babae. Pero hindi siya babaero ha! Mahilig naman akong tukso-tuksohin siya. So ang ginagawa niyang pang-asar sa akin, tinutukso niya ako sa kanya. Pero hindi, hindi yun totoo. Pero masaya lang talaga yung show and parang hindi talaga kami nagtratrabaho pag andun sa show. Kaya as much as possible ayaw naming haluan ng ibang kulay kung ano man yung mga relasyon naming dahil naku baka magkaroon kami ng mga wall sa isa’t isa,” she explains.
Yeng now also admits she feels closer to Vhong Navarro after they worked together as the newest image models for clothing label RRJ. At their recent press launch last October 7 at ABS-CBN, she told the press that no romance was in the horizon as she only looks up to the talented comedian as an older brother. “Si Kuya Vhong, saludo ako sa kanya. Sobrang galing niya, para siyang all-in-one person, sobrang angas talaga. Sobrang masaya siya kasama. Siya yung kuya Vhong na nakakausap ko sa backstage, a-approachin ka, sobrang warm. So parang brothers and sisters kami talaga,” she confesses.
