Kim Chiu clears up intrigues involving her alleged rift with Erich Gonzales as well as her growing friendship with Angelica Panganiban and Maja Salvador.
During a set visit for My Binondo Girl
last June 1, Kim Chiu said that she couldn’t understand why people keep on insisting that she’s no longer friends with Erich Gonzales just because she’s gaining new friends from the biz. Recent reports even claimed that their falling out has something to do with controversial couple Derek Ramsay and Angelica Panganiban. But she was quick to say that there’s no basis to the accusations being thrown her way lately. “Lahat naman tayo may iba’t ibang klaseng kaibigan. Halimbawa, may isa kang
set of friends, tapos meron ding iba pa, so wala naman masama dun
. Hindi [naman ako napipikon sa
issue tungkol sa amin ni
Erich], parang paulit-ulit lang kasi kahit hindi naman talaga totoo. Hindi ko alam kung saan nanggagaling yun
,” she began.
Kim further explained that it’s not as if the Chiurigogobaschu girls (her group of friends which includes Erich, Melissa Ricks, Kitkat, Beauty Gonzales, and Empress) don’t have a different set of friends. “Kahit kami nila
Erich, ‘Ayan na nga tayo o, sabay-sabay pinapanood
[sa TV]’. Parang bakit anong problema? Sila naman may iba ding kaibigan, hindi lang sila-sila lang. Tsaka tuloy pa rin naman yung
communication ko sa kanila. Lumalabas at nagbo-
bonding pa rin kami.”
Kim grew closer to Maja Salvador after her heartbreak because of Gerald Anderson last year. Then she became friends with Angelica Panganiban when the three of them got the chance to bond during the Star Magic US Tour
last summer. “Okay naman sila. Si Angelica siga na kenkoy. Si Maja naman siga din na pa-sweet at bakla din. Kapag kasama ko sila tawa lang kami ng tawa. Minsan sabi nga ni Angelica, ‘Ang hirap pala maging Kim, lalagnatin ako
.’ Sabi ko, ‘Ano ka ba? Parang hindi naman.’ Nagbibiruan lang kami lagi kaya nakakatuwa.
The last time na nakasama ko sila sa isang
event two weeks ago.”
Kim clarified, however, that she’s never the type who label her friendships so she finds it odd whenever the local press ask her if Maja and Angelica are her new best friends. “Simula nung bata ako wala talaga akong matatawag na
best friend kasi iba-ibang lugar ang tinirhan ko. Nalibot ko na ang Pilipinas at taon-taon ang dami kong nagiging kaibigan. So hindi ko kaya na tayong dalawa lang ang magkaibigan
for life, parang ganon. Hindi ko alam kung bakit hindi ko kayang gawin yung isa lang ang
best friend. Gusto ko marami para masaya, kasi iba-ibang ugali at
experience ang natututunan mo sa kanila
