Sam Milby cleared up recent reports that he is seeing Shaina Magdayao. The Filipino-American actor clarified that they do see each other, but always in the company of other friends.
“’Yung mga times na nag-hang out kami, we didn’t have a chance to really talk kasi laging kasama yung mga kaibigan din. Ako, nahihiya din ako,” he said in an interview during his recent contract renewal with ABS-CBN.
Two years ago, reports that he was planning to woo Shaina made rounds in showbiz, however this never really pushed through since according to Sam, “We didn’t get to hang out, we didn’t get to talk.
"We hung out few times, pero never kaming nag-usap ng anything deep at all. Kasi, parang nung sinabi ko na gusto ko siyang ligawan, it put a kind of tension,” he said.
These days though, they are finally able to talk and slowly get to know each other. “So it’s nice na nung nag-hang out na kami with common friends, it started off na no pressure at all. Our friendship has gotten really nice,” he added.
But despite his clarification, many presumed that her being linked to Ultimate Heartthrob Piolo Pascual, which Shaina recently explained to have only been “hyped up” was the reason why Sam wasn’t able to make his moves towards her. To this he said, “Ay hindi wala siyang kinalaman.”
When asked to comment about Shaina’s remark that he should be the one to talk about what is going on between them, Sam simply replied, “First off, kung gusto kong ligawan or meron akong dine-date, parang ayaw ko rin sabihin kasi parang kapag sinasabi ko, parang hindi siya nangyayari.”
With the Star Magic Ball coming up next week, Sam claimed that he would once again be flying solo at the event. The last time that he went to the annual party with a date was with his former girlfriend Anne Curtis back in 2011.
