Kiray Celis on Piolo Pascual:'Di ako nagpi-feeling close sa kanya dahil lang close ako sa anak niya'


082511-kiray_main.jpgKiray Celis revealed during the press conference of the teen show Growing Up that her close friend Iñigo, Piolo Pascual’s son, flew back to the United States Tuesday night, August 23. Iñigo, who is based in the United States, arrived in the country about a month ago for a vacation with his dad.

However, the young comedienne added that she and Iñigo have agreed to have constant communication. “Lagi kaming mag-uusap... everyday,” quipped Kiray.

When asked about rumors romantically linking her to Piolo’s son, Kiray let out a laugh and explained, “Best friends lang po kami ni Iñigo. Bata pa po si Iñigo. Thirteen (years old) po ‘yon 15 po ako. Pangit po na mas matanda ‘yung babae mas okay na mas malaki ang age gap ng lalaki. Best friends lang po kami.

Kiray continued that she does not want the dramatic actor to think that she wants to make a fuss out of his closeness to Iñigo. “Nagkita kami nung Sunday ni Papa P. Sabi niya, ‘Oy, Johana!’ Hindi ko alam na alam niya ‘yung tunay kong pangalan. Pero nagkuwentuhan kami ni Iñigo na naikuwento nga niya sa papa niya,” she shared.

Sabi niya (Piolo) ba’t daw tahimik ako kasi ‘di talaga ako nagsasalita. Kasi gusto ko maisip ni Papa P. na mataas talaga ang respeto ko sa kanya, ‘yung hindi ako ‘yung nagpi-feeling close dahil close ako sa anak niya.”

Another guy being linked to the actress is showbiz newcomer Joseph Marco, but Kiray clarified that she has no crush on him. “Nakasama ko lang sa Wansapanataym (episode) kami ‘yung love team. Tapos after that naging super close kami,” she said.

She justified that people might be misinterpreting her being friendly. “Kasi mahilig talaga akong makipagkaibigan. Sabi ko nga bakit ‘di ako natsitsismis sa mga babae kong kaibigan at puro sa kaibigan kong lalaki?”  Kiray joked. “Kahit sino pwede kong maging kaibigan bakla, lalaki, tomboy. Natsi-tsismis lang ako kapag may kasama akong lalaki.

Kiray is part of the upcoming teenage show Growing Up top-billed by young stars Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes. In the weekly show, Kiray plays the best friend to Julia’s and Kathryn’s characters.

“Ito ‘yung show ng kabataan [at] kami ang magpapakita sa TV kung ano ang mangyayari sa teens. Itong show na ito very light lang. Sobrang mild lang ang drama. Kailangang abangan talaga.”
