Rather than entertain issues about competition on the set of 'My Binondo Girl,' Matteo says he and his co-stars are happy for the others' shining moments on the show.
Actor Matteo Guidicelli clarified that there is no competition among Kim Chiu’s leading men on the teleserye My Binondo Girl
. Aside from Matteo, Jolo Revilla, and Xian Lim are the other love interests of the actress on the primetime soap. Currently, it is Xian and Kim’s tandem that has a huge following.
Being one of the leading men, Matteo is often asked if he gets jealous of Xian’s successful pair up with Kim. He said that they (the actors) are thankful to be on the show and the tandem that gets a following is an additional blessing for all. “I told Xian, ‘Bro
, [to] whoever Kim goes to, that person should take care of it. If it’s you, if it’s me, if it’s Jolo, blessing talaga
.’” The Filipino-Italian actor continued that he is supportive of the Kim-Xian team-up since it also makes people watch the show more. “People love Xian and Kim, (that’s) good for them. I’m so proud of Xian, basta andun lang kami.
Me, Jolo, and Xian, whatever the people like most [we’re all for that]. I told Xian kahit ano’ng mangyayari walang kompetisyon.
Let’s all be happy for each other. If Kim goes to you, if Kim goes to me, or to Jolo, let’s be happy. It’s a blessing that ABS-CBN gave us (a nice project) so no competing. Let’s (just) do our best.”
Matteo got playful with his answers on rumors of a brewing romance between Kim and Xian off-camera. “Basta marami akong masasabi sa kanila, marami akong
secret na alam. Ako ang nagbuko sa
teddy bear (na ibinigay
Kim). I’m so happy for them, I’m so happy for Xian and Kim. I just hope (My) Binondo
(Girl) would be great and people will love it and I just wish the best for our show.”
On the other hand, Matteo said that he going home to Cebu this coming Christmas to catch up with family. “I haven’t been with my family for a long time so
babalik ako don kasama ang buong pamilya ko. Masaya.” He added that he and girlfriend Maja Salvador have not yet discussed about their plans together this coming holiday season.
