Kim Chiu speaks up about Melissa Ricks and Jake Cuenca's breakup


060511-kim_main.jpgContrary to persistent reports that Kim Chiu has no time for her Chiurigogobaschu friends, the My Binondo Girl star shared that she has been there for Melissa Ricks when the latter and Jake Cuenca broke up two months ago. Kim unfortunately usually misses out on their group’s bonding moments due to her work commitments. “Nami-meet ko naman siya. Nagkikita kami pero hindi lang lagi. Hindi lang yung buo sila [na mga Chiurigogobaschu]. Hindi ako nakakasama kung kailan buo sana dapat kasi may ginagawa ako eh,” she said in a recent interview with Push.com.ph.

Even though she couldn’t hang out with Melissa as much as she wants to, Kim stressed that she’s just a text away whenever the former needs advice from her. “Nag-usap kami minsan. Nag-text siya kung anong gagawin niya. Nandun lang naman ako. Tsaka isang text lang niya, nagre-reply ako agad. Tsaka andito naman kaming lahat and ang dami naman namin sa barkada na handang magbigay ng support sa kanya.”

But whatever went wrong with Melissa and Jake’s relationship, Kim said that she is proud of the way her friend’s dealing with her heartbreak. “Si Mel ngayon palaban siya eh. Parang ang reaksyon ko, ‘Ay, ikaw ba ‘yan Melissa?’ Nagulat ako nung one time, parang ang tagal naming hindi nagkita. Nung nag-ASAP siya, nagkita kami dun, nagkakwentuhan kami, ganyan. Parang, ‘Ay, ano ‘yang sinasabi mo sa akin teh?’ Basta feeling ko okay naman na siya kasi hindi na siya masyadong umiiyak. And masaya ako para sa kanya dahil kahit na sobrang sakit, siguradong may natutunan naman sila sa isa’t isa ni Jake.”

Doesn’t she feel caught between Jake and Melissa who are both close to her? “Hindi naman po, parte naman ng buhay ‘yan.
