Angeline Quinto answers issues linking her to Sam Milby and Coco Martin


062211-angeline_main.jpgAngeline Quinto cleared up the issue that she and Sam Milby were recently spotted dating. The grand winner of Star Power admitted that they dined together, but it was not a romantic date. “’Yung one time na lumabas kami nagkukuwentuhan lang po kami,” she said at the press conference of her upcoming major concert, Angeline Quinto: Patuloy Ang Pangarap on July 15 at Sky Dome, SM North Edsa. “Ang nangyari nga po ang mga out-of-the-country [commitments] po kinuwento ko sa kanya. Kasi mahina si Kuya Sam sa Tagalog. Nagpapaturo po siya ng Tagalog, tapos [sa] English po sa kanya ako nagpapaturo.” The singer related that she first met Sam on ASAP and eventually interacted through BBM (BlackBerry messaging).

Members of the press teased Angeline if she would entertain Sam if he decides to pursue her. “Ba’t naman ganon? Ba’t pag-asa agad?” she replied evidently surprised. “Hindi naman nanliligaw siya pero sobrang bait naman talaga si Kuya Sam na kaibigan sa akin as kuya ko po. Kasi mahirap maging boyfriend si Kuya Sam, English-speaking. Pagod na ako lagi [tapos] pagod pa ako sa kanya, ‘di ba po?” she joked.

Angeline lit up when asked, what if her showbiz crush Coco Martin decides to court her. “Kung sakaling manligaw po si Coco, carry lang po,” she replied smiling, but added that her priority now is her career. “Ayoko talaga muna ng love life kasi siyempre kailangan na kailangan din po ng nanay ko ngayon lalo na andami pong gamot sa maintenance ng nanay ko,” she explained referring to her mom’s medication after a recent heart surgery. “Tsaka gusto ko mag-ipon muna po, ayokong may iisipin na iba.

Since Angeline is open to trying out acting in the future, she said that it would be a dream come true to act with Coco in a project. “Sana nga po,” she said hopefully. “Kung mabibigyan ng chance na magkatrabaho si Coco, masayang-masaya po ako ‘pag nagkatotoo ‘yon. Kasi idol ko din ‘yun. Si Coco isa sa mga idol kong mga lalaki, pati na si John Lloyd (Cruz).”

She revealed that she admires the indie actor because she sees herself in him. “Nung nakita ko parang nakita ko ang sarili ko sa kanya nun, eh. Tahimik lang parang mahiyain pero guwapo.”

Angeline revealed that she has non-showbiz suitors but she made it clear to them that her priority now is her career.  “Mga kababata ko sa Sampaloc (Manila). ‘Yung iba pong nagpaparamdam ayokong isipin nila na nagbago ako. Kaya ‘pag may time sinasabi ko sa kanila na okay lang pero huwag mag-expect. Alam din po nila na medyo busy ngayon kaya naiintindihan naman nila ‘yon.”
