'Wansapanataym Presents Rod Santiago's Buhawi Jack' star Jewel Mische says her love life is still very much alive.
After her ABS-CBN debut on Maalaala Mo Kaya last month, Jewel Mische takes on an even bigger role as she stars opposite Gerald Anderson in the new weekend adventure series Wansapanataym'rsquo;s Rod Santiago'rsquo;s Buhawi Jack where she plays Vera, the spirited girl who captures Buhawi Jack's heart. During the show'rsquo;s press con held last January 18, 2011 at the ABS-CBN compound, the pretty actress admittted that she is excited about starting her first major show with the Kapamilya network, but she never imagined she would be paired opposite Gerald Anderson. "It was unexpected kasi sabi ko nga, ang gusto ko lang rin ay magsimula ulit sa career ko, hindi ko alam na ganun yung plano nila for me and for them to even consider me to be paired up with Gerald, that is something really big," she shared.
Although Jewel has been known to always refrain from talking about her reported relationship with Richard Gutierrez, the 20 year-old couldn'rsquo;t help but react to reports that they had reportedly broken up already. "He is very, very supportive. My love life is alive. Funny I never talked about Richard when I was with GMA. I didn'rsquo;t say were back together, but I think my answers were very clear naman. Read my lips," she said knowingly.
When pressed to give more details about their relationship, Jewel chose to politely turn down the press. "Alam niyo, for the past three years I'rsquo;ve been silent about Richard and it will remain the same right now. I'rsquo;ll be quiet. I don'rsquo;t see nay good reason to talk about us right now, lalo na he has a project with different girls while I have a project here in ABS-CBN. I don'rsquo;t find any good reason to talk about us now really so I don'rsquo;t want to talk about it," she said.
Jewel admits that she and the hunky actor are still very much in contact with each other. "Whatever happened, whatever is happening, Richard won'rsquo;t do anything without my approval, without settling things with me or talking with me. He won'rsquo;t do that, he won'rsquo;t be rude to do that to me so what I'rsquo;m trying to say is kung ano man yung nangyari, kung ano man yung ngayon, kaming dalawa yung nagkakaintindihan doon," she explained.
Jewel also went on to say that even after all their years together, she has never been affected by issues about third parties. Just recently, Richard has supposedly being linked to model turned actress Solenn Heussaff. "She'rsquo;s not the first one. From the moment that Richard and I got together, how many women ba yung na-link na sa kanya? Faithful naman si Chard. I'rsquo;m very, very happy," she said.
Although she didn'rsquo;t expressly say it, Jewel let it be known that contrary to the reports, it seems her relationship with Richard is even better than before. "Yes something changed. I'rsquo;m happier now. I'rsquo;m more excited now. I'rsquo;m excited about every day and very obvious naman yung difference from before. Remember not too long ago I said I feel like I'rsquo;m the most loved girl on the planet? I still feel the same," she said with a smile.
