062811-andrei_main.jpgAndre Felix said that he is happy with the news that ex-girlfriend Jennylyn Mercado and friend Luis Manzano are now dating. “As long as they’re happy, you know, kumbaga tapos na ‘yon, eh [yung sa amin ni Jennylyn], matagal nang tapos ‘yon. I’m friends with Luis, he’s been very, very good to me nung nasa MYX pa ako. He would give me advice, tips also in hosting. So Luis is like my idol, so to speak, and isa sa mga tumulong sa akin. And Jen and I are friends,” he shared during the press launch of the dating game show, Dream Date, which will air on Studio 23.

Andrei said that he was surprised when he first heard about the news and he could not give any answer whenever people ask him about it. “Sinabi ko ‘di ko na rin alam kung ano ang nangyayari and everything. Sobrang nakatutok ako sa work sa hosting sa Umagang Kay Ganda, ito pa Dream Date. Basta masaya sila, masaya din ako. Basta masaya lahat.

Andrei revealed that he still sends text messages to Jen once in a while and even texted her last May 15, to greet her a happy birthday and also on Mother’s Day. “We talked late last year. When we got to talk clearly last year, tapos early this year nag-usap din kami.” But the host said that he does not want to go into further details. “Alam mo ‘yung feeling na less words, less mistakes. Mas maganda na hindi na magsalita. It’s hard also if you say something and another one says something else. Ayoko namang magmukha akong sinungaling. Just to set things straight, we’re friends, gin-reet ko siya nung birthday niya, I greeted her mom nung Mother’s Day, I greeted her a Happy Mother’s Day.”

The host also admitted that he thought before that it was not possible to be friends with your previous girlfriends. “Akala ko parang mahirap na maging friends kami. Kahit ‘yung the one prior to her (Jennylyn), ‘yung dati kong girlfriend na ikinasal na kinumusta ko ganyan-ganyan sabi ko nga mas maganda to be friends with your ex. Nagkaroon ng time na hindi ako naniniwala, na imposible ‘yon. And even my family [says], ‘Ba’t ka pa magiging friends with your ex, eh nasaktan ka na nga?’ There was a time na gumaan ‘yung loob niya, gumaan ang loob ko nung nalaman niya na gumaan ang loob ko, gumaan ang loob niya,” he said referring to Jennylyn. “And sinabi ko kasi sino ba ko? Di ako Diyos. Kung ang Diyos nga is very forgiving and napakabait and ako I’m just [human]… ‘yun lang ‘yun. Mas maganda maging kaibigan na lang.”

Right now, Andrei revealed that he is keeping himself busy with his hosting projects and going out with friends. He added though that he sometimes misses Jennylyn. Apart from the daily early morning show Umagang Kay Ganda, Andrei will host Dream Date opposite MYX VJ Bianca Roque. Dream Date will premiere on July 15, Friday, 11:30 pm on Studio 23.
