Despite rumors of her putting Paulo Avelino on "friendzone," KC Concepcion revealed that she's not completely closing her doors to the Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon star.
“Honestly, we have our ups and downs. We are very, very, very close. I can really say isa siya sa mga best friends ko. Not to say na hanggang doon lang pero maganda 'yung friendship namin. It’s very real, genuine. Wala naman kaming project together. We are very, very good friends,” KC said in an interview on The Buzz on Sunday.
The Ikaw Lamang actress, whose last known romance was in 2011, added that she just wants to be certain that her next relationship would be for keeps.
“Pero siguro nandun din 'yung siyempre may anak na siya. Siyempre ako ayaw ko din mag-commit sa isang tao na—kasi dapat tuluy-tuloy na 'yun. Hindi pa namin napag-uusapan exactly kung ano 'yung meron kami pero you’re right, whatever we have now, we are happy that way,” she said.
The still recuperating actress who suffered from dengue, recently made a lot of her fans for their romance happy when she posted a video of her and Paulo jamming to Jessie J's "Price Tag" inside the hospital on her Instagram account.
“Ayaw ko na mag-deny. Pero hindi naman pag-amin ito. Ang sa akin, artista so kapag ganun, celebrity or nakikita ka sa TV, hindi ka pwedeng humingi ng privacy lagi. Nag-decide akong i-share kasi napaka-sweet ni Pau,” she said.
She lauded the efforts of the actor, whom she notes often shows her a different side of him from the ones that people see in him "kapag nakikita mo siyang rumarampa na ang lakas ng dating."
She described him as "very sweet, he’s a very thoughtful person."
"Nung nasa hospital ako, siya talaga 'yung nag-alaga every night and day. 'Yun ang sincerity na hindi mo talaga mafe-fake,” she said. “Kasi when you’re sick, kapag naospital ka, parang ang lungkot. Parang lahat ng tao hindi alam kung bibisitahin ka or hindi. Siya, no questions asked. Talagang nandun siya."
But before fans can get ahead of themselves, she clarified that Paulo has not told her that he loves her yet. She however lauded how he has been very consistent in being there for her whenever she needs him.
"Pero my lola, kasi na-ICU 'yung lola ko, 'yun 'yung time na nagkita kami ulit. Kasi there was a time na 'di kami masyadong nagkikita, nag-uusap ni Pau. And we actually unfollowed each other on Instagram," she revealed.
According to her, the decision for them to unfollow each other was due to the fact that "Kasi masyado na kaming nagiging close."
