Rayver Cruz refuted the speculations that the reason he brought Director Cathy Garcia-Molina to the Star Magic ball is to avoid being linked to Sarah Geronimo and Cristine Reyes. Apparently, he really asked the box office director to be his date since John Lloyd Cruz went with her last year. "Siyempre natuwa ako kasi si Direk maraming nagaaya dito e, tapos sa akin siya pumayag. So nakakatuwa kasi pinagbigyan naman niya ako tutal bunso naman ako sa mga anak niya 'lsquo;di ba?" Aside from the movie You Changed My Life, the two have also worked together on the TV series Spirits back in 2005.
When told that other people might get the wrong idea about their obvious closeness, Direk Cathy couldn'rsquo;t help but laugh when Rayver exclaimed that it'rsquo;s okay with him. "We always go out even outside work. Siyempre anak-anakan ko 'lsquo;to. Ihahanap ko siya ng date. Yun ang goal ko ngayon." She confessed that she'rsquo;s privy to the details about Rayver'rsquo;s love life but she refused to say whether she'rsquo;s in favor of Cristine or Sarah to be his girlfriend. "Wala naman akong say dun. Ako naman kung sino gusto niya, okay ako dun."
Rayver already expected that he would be prodded about his strained friendship with Cristine since he never admitted to courting her in the past. But despite his obvious awkwardness whenever the subject comes up, the young actor/dancer stressed that all is well between him and the star of Kristine Series. "Nagkakasama naman kami sa ASAP XV e. Basta okay kami. Kung ano iniisip nila na hindi, 'lsquo;di ba, wala yun. Basta masaya kami lalo na kasi sa ASAP isang family kami."
In the meantime, Rayver shared that he really enjoyed working opposite Melai Cantiveros in Wansapanataym'rsquo;s Inday Bote.'nbsp; "Nakakatuwa kasi kung paano siya sa TV ganon siya sa personal. Sobrang nakakatuwa siyang tao. Ang sarap niyang kasama kasi walang boring moments. Kaya imbis na ma-pressure dahil pinasikat noon nila Ms. Maricel Soriano at William Martinez yung movie na Inday Bote, actually excited lang ako na kami yung gumawa para naman sa henerasyon ngayon. Tapos si Melai kayang-kaya niya yun e. Ang galing ng sense of humor niya kaya happy kami sa result nung TV series," he added.
