Luis Manzano says that he and Angel Locsin are not yet a couple but they are definitely getting closer.
Luis Manzano confirmed that he and Angel Locsin are off to a good start again after they broke up almost a year ago. The actor-host revealed that he started going out again with Angel and has even visited the actress in her home just recently. "Nakalabas na uli ako with her friends. The same way na siya rin with my friends," Luis related in an interview last Sunday, September 5.
"Everything is on a very, very positive note. We're off to a very, very good start," Luis revealed. He added that having overcome the awkward stage after their breakup, he took pride in the fact that they have rekindled their friendship. "Kaya naming sabihin na hindi lahat ng nag-break na couples kayang sabihin ito. Pero 'lsquo;yung sa amin, we're off to a very good start." He was also quick to deny some claims that they are supposedly back in each other'rsquo;s arms.
People started to suspect that the former couple are giving their relationship a second chance because of their exchange of sweet comments on their Twitter accounts. "Sa Twitter kasi, siyempre no matter what happened between Angel and I, safe to say na nalagpasan namin 'lsquo;yung iba't ibang stages ng breakup," explained Luis. "Nandun kasi 'lsquo;yung medyo galit, medyo may bitterness, medyo may pagiging awkward.
"Ngayon, wala na uling ilangan, 'lsquo;yung mga past issues, kahit papaano nagkukulitan na uli. Nalagpasan na namin 'lsquo;yun (awkward stage) and we're happy," the Panahon Ko 'lsquo;To host continued. He also described their current closeness as, "this very, very positive phase sa kung anuman ang mayroon kami ngayon.
Luis also related that they treat each other just like the old happy times. "Nakakapagkulitan na kami, nakakapag-asaran na... So, we're happy that we're back on track."
The son of Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos also defended Angel against claims that the actress has turned into a "party girl" and supposedly went out on dates and would get drunk. "Sabi ko nga nun, ang daming speculations na lumabas about her, ako mismo ang magsasabi na it's not true and it goes to show na hindi naman talaga totoo," Luis defended.
The actor stressed that he has known Angel for a very long time and that he is confident that the accusations of her being a wild girl have no basis. "Alam ko kung gaano siya kabait, na kung ano ang nakikita ng camera kung gaano siya kabait, 'lsquo;di hamak na mas marami pa siyang nagagawa sa likod ng camera." He added that his former girlfriend is a philanthropist who does not want her charitable deeds being publicized. "Kung ano ang nakikita ninyo sa TV na charitable acts na ginagawa niya, times ten sa likod ng camera.
