Alessandra de Rossi clarifies that she and Kean Cipriano are just good friends.
Alessandra de Rossi'rsquo;s make-believe rivalry with Vice Ganda over Kean Cipriano gained a huge following on Twitter for the past few months. She would even upload edited photos of her and Kean that were so convincing that some people couldn'rsquo;t help but wonder if they really have a thing for each other. In an interview with Push.com.ph, Alessandra related how her friendship with the Callalily lead vocalist started. "Sa Twitter lang kami naging close. Si Kean first time ko siya na-meet sa grand finals ng Showtime. Sabi kasi nun ni Yayo Aguila, 'lsquo;Ang gwapo naman niyan!'rsquo; Tapos tinawag ko siya, sabi ko, 'lsquo;Hey cutie pie!'rsquo;"
Alessandra has fondly called Kean her "cutie pie" since then and they would even exchange sweet tweets. But she was quick to clarify that they never thought of becoming more than friends. On her part, Alessandra said that she'rsquo;d rather date someone older than her to begin with. "Ay hindi! Hindi siya nanligaw sa akin. Tsaka bata pa si Kean for me. Nandun na kasi ako sa stage na gusto ko na mag-asawa so 'lsquo;di ko pwedeng dyowain yung 22 or 23 years old. Kasi parang sisirain ko naman buhay nila kung ise-set ko na yung utak nila sa pag-aasawa. Parang 'lsquo;di naman ganon. So siyempre gusto ko someone na emotionally ready."
When asked if Kean is okay with being her and Vice Ganda'rsquo;s "boytoy" of sorts, Alessandra maintained that the young heartthrob has always been a good sport when it comes to their jokes. "Nag-eenjoy naman siya for sure kasi nakakatawa naman talaga. I don'rsquo;t think may magre-react na masama dun sa ginagawa namin. Minsan nga medyo brutal na naiisip ko kawawa naman kung may mga batang nakabasa kasi baka 'di nila maintindihan. Pero minsan kasi nagkakataong may theme din yung 'lsquo;rivalry'rsquo; namin ni Vice. Kunwari pwedeng action movie o kaya naman fantasy movie tayo today, ganon." 'nbsp;
Does she ever run out of lines to reply to Vice? "Ako nawawalan obviously. May mga times na tatawa na lang talaga ako. Yun talaga, mas masarap tumawa kaysa mag-isip ng isasagot ko. Sobrang talino niya lang talaga. As in iba yung wit niya, hindi mo mapapantayan. Wit ko mapantayan yung wit niya," Alessandra added with a laugh.
