Star Magic Angel Myrtle Sarrosa has been the object of teasing of her Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 co-participants during their recently-concluded press conference as she was being paired to Sam Concepcion.
In fact, their co-participants even started the tag “SamTle” for their pairing.
Myrtle for her part just laughed off their joke and told Push.com.ph, “Lahat naman kasi kami close kami lahat sa group.”
She added, “So, close ako kay Sam, close ako kanila Kuya Eric [Nicolas], kay Michael [Pangilinan], kanila Ate Kakai [Bautista], Denise [Laurel]. Abangan nalang nila, pero di ko alam. Pero we’re okay, we’re good friends.”
Myrtle being paired with the Kapamilya singer happened almost at the same time when her ex-boyfriend, Brian Poe Llamanzares came to the press conference of his crush Jasmine Curtis-Smith, who happens to be Sam’s former flame.
It was only last July when the cosplayer-turned-host opened up about their split.
The former Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition 4 Big Winner claims that she’s now in a better place after hitting “rock bottom” due to the said heartbreak.
“Feeling ko talaga ano planned talaga ni God ang mangyayari sa buhay ko because after that, when I hit rock bottom. Nung isang point ng life ko parang I hit rock bottom, right after that I had nowhere to go but up. Tapos ngayon doble, doble, triple pa ‘yung nangyayari. So siguro plinano talaga ni God na he would take away something from my life in order to replace it with something much, much better. And I’m so thankful,” said Myrtle.
The 20-year-old Kapamilya star even reiterated she can finally say that she has moved on and that she’s happy.
“Alam mo, hindi na ako nakakaramdam ng lungkot. Every day, masayang-masaya ako because of these people, palagi nila akong pinapatawa. Laging masaya with them and I’m so thankful na part ako ng Your Face Sounds Familiar,” she said.
But what if she bumps into the son of Senator Grace Poe Llamanzares?
“Wala. I would just tell him na, ‘Thank you for being part of a chapter of my life.’ Tapos ngayon, I have moved on to something better,” Myrtle said.
At the moment, the Iloilo born star is not too keen to get into a relationship anew.
“Wala, hindi ko na priority! Actually, yung lovelife, hindi ko na priority. Gusto ko lang talaga mag-have fun and enjoy,” she ended.
Myrtle along with Sam, Eric, Denise, Kakai, Michael, KZ, and Kean Cipriano are the participants of Your Face Sounds Familiar which will start airing on September 12 after Maalaala Mo Kaya.
