While people may continue to link her to John Lloyd Cruz, Ruffa Gutierrez says she is not affected by the issue anymore.
Ruffa Gutierrez was careful with her statements when asked about the claim that she and John Lloyd Cruz supposedly continue to communicate. "Alam mo mahirap magsalita tungkol d'rsquo;yan because I'rsquo;ve heard a few things had been said. But for me I'rsquo;d like to keep it private kase kung anong press release niya sa inyo baka iba 'lsquo;yung sinasabi niya sa inyo o iba 'lsquo;yung nangyayari sa totoong buhay but for me life goes on," said Ruffa. The two had previously confirmed that they had a special relationship, but had long since parted ways.
The actress-host continued that she is not burning any bridges between her and Lloydy, but whether the issue that that she and Lloydy still communicate, should not be a big deal. "You know he'rsquo;s part of my past. He'rsquo;s still a good friend. I have no issues whatsoever. Hindi naman sa ikakahaba ng hair ko kung tumatawag siya o hindi. To me it really doesn'rsquo;t matter," she explained at the press launch of Avon Jet Holiday and Avon Fashions Dare to Dazzle Jewelry Collection in Makati, last Tuesday, October 12. "I treat everyone who'rsquo;s been part of my life as a friend. The issue naman here is nobody needs to be worried. I'rsquo;m living my life. I'rsquo;m dating other people."
Members of the press also asked the former beauty queen if she gets hurt every time John Lloyd allegedly denies that they still communicate. "Hindi ako nahu-hurt. If JL (John Lloyd) says we'rsquo;re not talking, well, maybe he has issues that he needs to cover up [or] maybe he has things he has to protect and I respect that," justified Ruffa. "I mean hindi ako nahu-hurt kasi first of all, hindi naman kami, so he can say whatever he wants. He doesn'rsquo;t affect me. Like I said, my statement to all of you is the truth and how I really feel whether he calls me or not is a not big issue." She stressed that she is not dwelling on her past relationship with John Lloyd that is why reporters should also not bug her about it.
Ruffa is still friends with Lloydy and said that it is unfair that some assume that John Lloyd and current girlfriend Shaina Magdayao supposedly get into fights because of her. "For me kahit maraming babaeng dumating sa buhay niya'mdash;and I'rsquo;m sure maraming babaeng darating sa buhay niya kasi bata pa siya'mdash;ang masasabi ko lang at least naging parte siya ng buhay ko, hanggang ngayon at siguro hanggang sa pagtanda namin magiging magkaibigan kami, in the same way na kaibigan ko si Aga (Muhlach), kaibigan ko si Zoren (Legaspi) so leave me out of the equation kapag sinasabing ako ang pinag-aawayan. Wala akong alam diyan'hellip; I would also like to tell JL that I never talked about him people are just saying these things and for me, walang issue at all."
Ruffa also denied the claims of controversial host DJ Mo Twister, who claimed that he saw her and Lloydy at a restaurant. "Hindi kami nagdi-date sa isang restaurant. Baka kamukha lang niya (John Lloyd). Hindi totoo 'lsquo;yon. That'rsquo;s not true," she stressed.
Ruffa explained that it might take a little longer before people would stop bringing up her past issue with
