Bianca Manalo reveals Dianne Medina texted her to check up on boyfriend Rodjun Cruz.
“Sino naman ang bagong lalaki ko ngayon?” joked Bianca Manalo when approached by reporters for an interview during the launch of her new product endorsement. The beauty queen-turned-actress/TV host had been previously linked to James Yap, Sam Milby, and Enchong Dee, but all turned out to be just rumors. But this time around, the name of her Happy, Yipee, Yehey! co-host Matteo Guidicelli came up.
“Ha?! Saan galing ‘yan?! Nakakatawa naman ‘yan!” was Bianca’s reaction. She immediately clarified that Matteo is just a good friend. “Same manager kami ni Matteo so para lang kaming magkapatid. He is my good friend.”
Bianca kept laughing when further probed about her closeness with Matteo on the set of their noontime variety show. She joked with reporters, “Ayan may naisip na naman kayong bagong lalaki na ili-link sa akin. Sino kaya ang next? I will be waiting.”
A recent report claimed that Bianca got a text from Dianne Medina asking about Rodjun Cruz. Bianca worked with Rodjun in the teleserye Juanita Banana, and in real life the young actor is in a relationship with Dianne. The former Bb. Pilipinas Universe confirmed that she did receive a text from Dianne. “Tumawag lang siya to confirm kung lumabas ba kami nina Rodjun, sina Bekimon, Katya (Santos), Tito Lito (Pimentel), at ‘yung ibang stars ng Juanita. Minsan kasi lumalabas kaming magkakasama. Sabi ko kay Dianne na, oo lumabas kaming lahat.”
Upon receiving the text, Bianca wondered why she was being involved in Rodjun’s relationship with Dianne. “Naisip ko rin kung bakit niya ako tinatanong. Bakit ba ako laging naiisyu nang ganito? Magkaibigan lang kami ni Rodjun. Minsan lang kaming naging love team sa show.” Nevertheless, Bianca stressed that there was no confrontation or word war that happened between her and Dianne. She added that she has no idea on whatever is going on in Rodjun and Dianne’s relationship.
With one rumor after another linking her to male celebrities, is Bianca worried to be perceived as a playgirl? She answered, “Hindi ako natatakot kasi hindi naman totoo ‘yung mga chismis. Kahit ipa-overnight ko pa sa inyo ang cellphone ko wala kayong makikitang nagtetext.”
