As news broke out that Angel Locsin called it quits with Phil Younghusband, Dimples Romana said that the actress has her full support during this trying time. “Alam naman natin lahat ang love story nila pero pareho pa rin natin silang kaibigan at tsaka alam naman ni Gel (Angel) kung ano ang nararamdaman ko about whatever happens in her life and I’m there to support her whether sa love life or whether it’s about her business or whether about her career. I’m always going to be there for her,” she stated in an interview with the press at the grand opening of R20 Hub in Quezon City.
Dimples said that she herself was surprised by the news. “Ako rin nagulat rin ako, lahat naman ng relasyon na nagi-end nanghihinayang talaga dahil sayang ‘yung relationship at ang sweet-sweet nila eh.”
Dimples said she doesn’t know the reason behind the breakup, saying, “Well alam mo kung bakit wala akong masasabi kasi hindi ko rin alam, I’m not the type of friend who would ask unless she tells me so we haven’t had time because she was so busy helping out the Red Cross, very busy with the The Legal Wife so once malaman ko yan baka pag magkita na tayo may masasabi na ako,” she said.
The host-actress believes that Angel will thrive despite the sad turn of events in her romantic life. “You know she’s very strong whether dumaan man siya sa pain, sa walang mang pain, very resilient naman siya eh.”
Dimples said that she wasn’t able to speak with Phil as well. “Di ko pa siya nakikita. Sabi ko nga dahil nagkataon kasi after that Yolanda happened so parang hindi ko na gustong tanungin, I would rather let them keep doing what they want now kaysa usisain ko pa kung ano ang nangyari but the whole point is if they are both okay so I am okay with that.”
