Arci Muñoz admires Ellen Adarna’s transparent nature.
This was an assumption that was countered by their co-star and the 2016 Ginebra Calendar Girl Arci Muñoz who stressed that the two are still okay.
Arci spoke about the two during her launch as the newest calendar girl of the local alcoholic brand which puts her in the league of Anne Curtis, Marian Rivera, Georgina Wilson, and Ellen, among others.
While Arci refused to comment on the Star Magic Ball incident that started the entire issue with reports of Ellen leaving Ejay for Paulo Avelino, she did say that the two remain good friends.
“So kung ano man ‘yung nandoon, binu-bully lang ni Ellen ‘yung si Ejay. Eh lagi silang ganon sa set eh. Cute lang,” she said.
If anything, she stressed that Ejay and Ellen’s relationship on set remains the same. In fact she described it as: “Very casual. Ganon parin sila nagkukulitan.”
Even if Ellen is currently in hot water for her supposed actions, Arci doesn’t feel the need to defend her friend.
“Well Ellen is Ellen. She’s very transparent when it comes to everything and her personality,” she said.
Arci even pointed out that it was Ellen’s said trait that actually endears her to the Cebuana-born actress.
“‘Yung pagiging totoo niyang tao. What you see is what you get. That’s her. So ‘yun na ‘yun. Kaya kami close kasi I love her just the way she is,” she said.
She also maintained that Ejay is her friend, but she stressed that she is closest to Ellen on the set of their top-rating soap.
But what does she have to say about rumors that Ellen was pining for Paulo?
“Dahil friend ko siya, secret namin ‘yun,” she ended.
Ellen, however, said in a recent interview that she and Paulo are just friends and have been for a while now. She furthermore said that she’s now dating someone else.
