Queenie Padilla reveals why she and Ejay Falcon can't be more than friends


033111-quennie_main.jpgIn an interview with ABS-CBN reporters, Queenie Padilla admitted that it was her Tum: My Pledge of Love leading man Ejay Falcon who encouraged her to join Star Magic’s pool of talents. “Actually, siya ang tumulong sa akin, siya yung nag-push sa akin na humingi ng tulong kina Mr. M (Johnny Manahan) and Tita Mariole (Alberto). Ako po yung lumapit sa kanila. Since then lagi nila akong tine-text kung kumusta na ako and everything. Nung may issue sa parents ko, tinext nila ako kung okay ako. Talagang nahulog na yung loob ko sa kanila kasi kahit na hindi pa ako Star Magic artist inaalagaan na nila ako.”

When asked if it was Ejay’s way of trying to be closer to her, Queenie said that she would rather think that he’s just being a good friend by supporting her career move. In fact, she revealed that he doesn’t visit her at home like he used to do. “Tanungin niyo po siya [kung bakit hindi na siya dumadalaw]. Ako, okay lang po, wala naman akong karapatan na magalit or maging affected dun dahil hindi niya ako girlfriend. Hindi ko alam [kung nanligaw ba siya] kasi ‘di ba leading man ko siya so ang leading man dapat inaalagaan ang leading lady. So ayoko ma-misinterpret yung [ginawa niyang pagbisita sa bahay dati] Baka ginagawa lang niya yun dahil leading man ko siya.

Queenie further shared that perhaps it would be difficult for her and Ejay to handle a relationship because he has other priorities in mind right now. “Para sa akin bata pa po kami and hindi namin kailangan magmadali. Sabi ni Ejay love is dangerous, mahirap daw ma-in love. Hindi ko alam [kung pinigilan niya yung damdamin niya]. Ako cool lang ako. Kasi siya breadwinner siya. Hindi siya yung normal na lalake na pwedeng magka-girlfriend na ganon lang kasi may responsibility siya sa pamilya niya. And ayoko naman maging in the way of that, nirerespeto ko po siya kung anong [gusto niya]. Malay natin in the future.”

The 19-year-old actress also opened up about her past relationship with actor PJ Valerio and how her parents strongly disapproved of it. Apparently, it came to a point that she became rebellious because of love. “Yes, actually for a while ginawa ko yun. Pero yung parents ko ayaw nila. Kahit na sabihin na ipinaglaban ko siya, hindi ako magiging masaya at hindi magwo-work yung commitment dahil walang blessing yung mga magulang ko. And sobrang mahal at nirerespeto ko ang mga magulang ko na hindi ko siya ipagpapalit sa lalake.”

Queenie added that she and PJ went steady for more than a year before they finally called it quits. “Opo, naka-move on na ako. Mag-one year na kaming break and may bagong girlfriend na siya. Siguro ang natutunan ko dito, I love my parents and fourth commandment ang honor your parents. Napansin ko po kasi nung nagrerebelde ako sa parents ko, yung buhay ko sira, hindi ako masaya na may problema. Tapos nung brineak ko si PJ, napakinggan ko na sila, naayos ko na buhay ko. Lahat naman tayo dumadaan dun and I’m glad na natuto ako sa experience na yun.
