Melissa Ricks says that she and Jake Cuenca have become more open to the media about their closeness.
Melissa Ricks and Jake Cuenca tried to hide their budding romance for several months now, but they finally came out in the open by going to the Star Magic ball together. It'rsquo;s definitely a big step for the two especially after their rumored breakup last summer. When asked why they seemed to be on better terms now, the young actress simply replied, "Wala, kasi kung dati medyo uneasy kami na magkasama, ngayon kahit anong gawin namin, ganyan, [meron at meron pa ring nasasabi ang ibang tao] so we might as well be together 'lsquo;di ba?" she said in a recent interview with PUSH.com.ph.
Although there are lots of claims that they have been a couple for a long while now, Melissa maintained that she and Jake are in no rush to make it official yet. But she didn'rsquo;t deny that the actor is the only guy who has gotten really close to her heart. "We'rsquo;re friends, maayos naman kami." Although it'rsquo;s really hard to be in a relationship with a fellow celebrity, Melissa admitted that she really hope that things will work out between them. "He's very special to me. He's a great guy. I want to get to know him better."
When asked how she feels every time she is accused of denying the real score between them, Melissa shared that she'rsquo;s learning to handle some of the intrigues being thrown her way. "Hindi naman maiiwasan na sabihin ng tao yun e. But what we're telling them, yun yung kung ano yung sa amin talaga. And if they don'rsquo;t want to believe it, wala kaming magagawa. Pero magkaibigan lang kami and we're just enjoying each other's company. Hindi naman namin itinatanggi yun," she stressed.
