Excited to promote her upcoming action-comedy flick Kung Fu Divas, Ai-Ai De las Alas said she was happy to give co-star Marian Rivera an impromptu tour of the ABS-CBN compound before their blogger’s conference held last September 12, Thursday. “Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Welcome to ABS-CBN!’ (laughs). Holding hands kami. Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Halika dito dali! Kasi sigurado ako maraming magpapa-picture sa iyo dito,’ kasi excited sila pag taga-kabilang channel pumupunta dito, lahat sila nagpapa-picture. Na-experience ko kasi yan kay Bossing (Vic Sotto, her co-star in the 2011 MMFF film Enteng Ng Ina Mo) so alam ko na na excited sila,” she shared.
The 48-year-old comedienne was glowing when she faced members of the media yesterday. She credited her happiness to prayers, doing the movie, and being loveless. Ai-Ai denied she was now dating a Brazilian businessman after posting a photo of them at a party last week. “Hahaha! Nakakatawa! Unang-una hindi siya Brazilian, ano siya Mexican-Hawaiian and kaibigan ko yun and boss yun. Kasi meron akong bagong ine-endorse and siya yung manager for international expansion so it’s a corporate friend. Masama ba mag-selfie? Kahit naman kayo may selfie din kayo eh. (laughs). Kasi nung mga panahon na yun dun sa Mama Mary’s birthday, lahat ng mga boss ng mga ine-endorse ko, inenvite ko and siguro dahil maraming ginagawa yung iba, siya lang yung isa sa mga nakapunta. So thankful naman ako at nandun siya. Thankful naman ako at nandun siya. Friend lang talaga. Friend lang,” she explained.
Earlier this year, Ai-Ai filed a case against Jed Salang in violation of Republic Act 9262 or Violence Against Women and Children which resulted in the courts granting her a temporary protection order. But Ai-Ai says she has already reached an amicable settlement with her ex-husband. “Tapos na, tapos na. Ang title na ngayon ng ginagawa natin ay ‘Moving forward’ (laughs). Okay na siya. In fairness okay na siya. Yes settled na. Hindi puwedeng sabihin yung ibang details,” she admitted.
To keep herself happy, Ai-Ai said she has been working out at the gym more and enjoying Zumba classes.
