Sam Pinto is not worried about several rumors naming her as the third party in some relationships.
Sam Pinto said that she is still overwhelmed by the fact she is Sen. Bong Revilla'rsquo;s leading lady in the Metro Manila Film Fest entry Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote. "Sobrang na-surprise because of all the leading ladies ako pa talaga 'lsquo;yung napili so I'rsquo;m very blessed and thankful and privileged, honored, lahat na talaga sobrang saya ko talaga," she beamed. Sam, who joined the reality TV show Pinoy Big Brother, did a few projects with ABS-CBN before she moved to GMA. She still talks to some of her fellow PBB housemates though.
Sam shared that she is happy with how her career is going. However, she also said that 2010 has been a tough year because she has been involved in controversies, particularly for allegations of being the third party involved with some couples, like that of Paul Jake Castillo and his non-showbiz girlfriend and of Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera. "Wala naman akong masyadong ginagawa. Nagha-hi lang ako, bye [tapos pagdating sa balita] may nanliligaw pala sa akin," she said.
However, she clarified that she is not scared of rumors linking her to showbiz male personalities because she knows that she is not guilty of these accusations. "I'rsquo;m not really scared being linked to anyone specially now that I'rsquo;m not looking [for a relationship and] I know naman din my limitations."
Sam also denied recent issues linking her to Jericho Rosales. Some weeks ago, a segment in Banana Split, showed Sam caught on camera with Jericho. "It was so funny, it was really a group thing. I was with Gab (Valenciano), Echo, and another friend. Gab (who is a good friend of Echo) has been my friend before showbiz pa so it was our first time to go out that day and nahuli pa sa camera. Super first time talagang mag-hang out that day tapos nakunan pa."
She then went to explain that she and Echo never went out as a couple and that they are simply friends. "Hindi na nasundan [ang date]. I guess we'rsquo;re just really friends. We even didn'rsquo;t exchange numbers. As in friends lang talaga."
