Will Wenn Deramass friendship with Toni Gonzaga surpass what he has with Claudine Barretto?


Director Wenn Deramas admitted that part of his motivation in doing the fantaserye Kokey @ Ako is the strong bond that he has with its lead star Toni Gonzaga. Apparently, they have been keeping in touch ever since they first worked together in Precious Hearts Romances Presents Ang Lalaking Nagmahal Sa Akin last year. "Ako mismo ngayon gumagawa ako ng mga konsepto para kay Toni. Gano'rsquo;n ko siya kagusto dahil nage-enjoy kami dahil pareho kaming tsismosa. 'lsquo;Pag nasa set kami kwentuhan kami ng kwentuhan na dalawa. So gusto ko siya, gusto niya ako, wala lang kaming sex talaga, pero aminado kami na nagmamahalan kami ng totoo," he naughtily stated during the press con of Kokey @ Ako last September 15.

Many of the entertainment press, however, recalled that the box office director shared the same closeness with former Kapamilya star Claudine Barretto. The two worked together in numerous series. When asked if Toni has already replaced his friendship with Claudine, Direk Wenn couldn'rsquo;t help but laugh at the mere mention of the controversial actress. "Kaloka! Nagbigay tayo ng pasabog," he cheerfully exclaimed before adding, "Hindi, alam naman natin yung sitwasyon namin ni Clau ngayon, hindi na kami nagkakatrabaho. Kahit nga sa pagtitinda ng sago'rsquo;t gulaman sana magkasama kami, pero hindi nga mangyari dahil nasa kabilang network siya. Kahit sa pelikula hindi rin dahil puro drama yung naka-line up sa kanya sa Viva Films, sa akin naman puro comedy."

Direk Wenn further explained that the kind of bond that he has with Toni is different compared to that of Claudine'rsquo;s. "Yung kay Toni kasi ang maganda sa amin, magkaibigan e. Si Claudine, 16 years old nung una kaming nagkasama. So hindi talaga kaibigan [kundi] nanay niya ako. Pero dahil sa tagal ng pundasyon ng friendship namin ni Clau Clau, bilang nanay at anak, hindi na mawawala yun. With Toni, nagkaroon ako ng kaibigan, ganun din siya sa akin. Nagsasabihan kami ng sama ng loob, lahat, mapa-masaya man o malungkot," he stressed.

In the same press con, Toni was also very vocal about Direk Wenn is the only person in show business who knows everything about her. As a matter of fact, he'rsquo;s one of the few people she has confided in with regards to her dispute with former Entertainment Live co-host Mariel Rodriguez. "Siguro yun yung isa sa mga friendship na itre-treasure ko dito sa industriya kasi kay Direk Wenn lang ako nag-o-open dun sa mga malalalim na bagay na nakasakit sa akin. Si Direk Wenn pa lang ang nakakaalam dito sa industriya, sa kanya ko pa lang na-o-open lahat."
