Although things seemed to be going well between KC Concepcion and her French suitor Pierre Emmanuel Plassart, the 27-year-old actress admitted she has already decided that they are better off as just friends for now. “Si Pep or si Pierre kasi, I met him unexpectedly sa isang dinner ni Bill Clinton. Second time niya akong i-invite sa isang function ng Clintons so that’s something na nakasama ko talaga siya in the same table with his mom and my mom. Needless to say, nagkasundo kami. It was fun talking to him. Dumating lang siguro sa point na sumeryoso masyado and na-realize ko na hindi pa pala ako ready maging sobrang serious so kesa mag-progress pa at masaktan siya in the end, parang prineserve ko muna kung ano man yung friendship na meron kami and pick up siguro in the future kapag ready na kaming dalawa,” she shared during her launch as Boardwalk’s Signature Style endorser held last February 26 at the EDSA Shangri-la hotel.
KC said she and Pierre have already talked things over and have remained good friends. “Naintindihan niya. Although siyempre pinu-push niya yung parang he’s fighting for it but kasi you have to be in the same level pagdating sa fighting for love. Wala pa ako sa level na yun, marami pa akong gustong gawin. Siguro for now sacrifice na lang muna. Nag-uusap pa rin kami kasi malalim na rin yung friendship namin ni Pierre,” she said during the Boardwalk presscon/fashion show.
The Against All Odds actress said she hopes he will still be there for her in the future. “I hope so. I mean true love waits so we’ll see kung talagang true yung love niya at talagang makarating ako dun sa level na ready na ako ata andiyan pa rin siya. Mabait naman siyang tao. Napaka-disente ng pamilya niya and mahal na mahal ko yung pamilya niya at mahal rin nila ako so we’ll see but for now maganda yung friendship namin. Nag-uusap pa rin kami. Mahabang pag-uusap yung nangyari pero in the end, he understood me and I’m very thankful for that,” she added.
KC said her mom Sharon Cuneta was also saddened by her decision to stay single. “Siyempre for her may mga times na nanghinayang siya, sabi niya, ‘Ang dise-disente na niya,’ yung ganyan, ganyan. Pero sabi ko rin kesa pilitin ko yung issue parang I’ll just have fun muna. Parang ayoko pang gawin pag hindi ako ready. Hindi ko rin mapapanindigan. Basta hindi pa ako ready,” she said.
When asked if it went as far as Pierre proposing to her, KC refused to either confirm or deny it. “Ano na lang, huwag na lang natin pag-usapan muna kasi enough na rin naman na na-share ko rin naman sa bansa ko na huwag muna. Parang that’s enough na.”
