Carla Abellana finally sets the record straight about the rumors surrounding her new flame, former Pinoy Big Brother housemate Tom Rodriguez.
One of the issues that was being linked to Tom was that Carla’s father, veteran actor Rey "PJ" Abellana, does not approve of him after supposedly seeing him throw a fit on the set of a game show.
“There’s really no truth behind it. Si Tom pa, napakabait na tao. It was a daily game show, hindi ko alam kung saan nanggagaling 'yun,” she said during her live appearance on The Buzz on Sunday.
The Shake Rattle and Roll XV star even added, “In fact, nung araw ng taping, ang sama ng pakiramdam niya that he had to go to the hospital to have himself checked. Ang taas ng blood pressure niya. Siguro dahil sa stress. Bumalik pa nga siya ng taping from the hospital kasi nahiya siya sa production. I don’t think somebody na masama na nga ang pakiramdam, siya pa 'yung mananakit ng tao or magdadabog or something.”
If anything, Carla claimed that her father is ecstatic to meet Tom in person.
“Nakilala lang niya si Tom for the first time, on TV pa. So walang chance na off cam. Looking forward siya na makilala pa si Tom better,” she said.
Since photos of them going out together has spread online, many netizens presumed that they are now officially a couple.
Something which Carla clarified saying that, “We are dating, aaminin namin 'yun. Lalo na ngayon na mas may free time kami. Walang time outside of work. Pero kahit paano naman, ngayon may time. We are dating just each other.”
