Shaina Magdayao couldn’t hide her surprise when asked about how her supposedly blossoming relationship with Piolo Pascual is going.
It may be recalled that Piolo and Shaina made headlines last month for their viral sweet dancing at the Star Magic Ball.

“Sobra ba? ‘Yun nga ang question ko eh,” said Shaina in reference to the video during an interview at the Walk of Fame induction.
Although the two have been spotted getting cozy in the past, they maintained that they are friends. The recent video however has sparked questions as to whether or not they have “rekindled” their allegedly blossoming romance.
“Teka parang hindi ko rin kinakaya ito,” she said. “No I think it’s really a friendship na hindi talaga nawala. ‘Yun ang masasabi ko.”
In a recent interview, the Ultimate Heartthrob shared that he and Shaina are currently “talking.”
Shaina agreed with what he said, “We’re talking. Pinakita niya sa ‘kin ang interview na ‘yun. Sabi ko ‘tama naman nga, oo nga naman we’re talking naman nga.’”
Asked as to whether or not talking is equivalent to dating, the Single/Single star maintained that they are really just talking.
“Yeah we go out kung may time. Pero sobrang panakaw nakaw kasi ngayon I’m working, siya din he’s working,” she explained.
She stressed, “You know we’re at this point in our lives na if meron mang mangyayari, hindi naman siguro namin itatago ‘yun sa mga tao.”
But is there a chance for her and Piolo to become an item?
“I’ll never know. Mahirap kasi mag-assume. Ako that’s one thing, hindi talaga ako assuming,” said Shaina.
The Lily actress did not deny that she likes Piolo as a person.
“I will always like him as a person. He’s always been there for me and even ‘yung mga personal kong nangyayari sa buhay, ewan ko nawi-witness niya lagi,” she said.
Shaina went on to describe him as “Isa siya siguro sa pinaka-dependable na tao na nakakasama ko.”
“In the business, you know it’s very rare na makahanap ka ng ganong klaseng tao. And so I would like to keep those people in my life,” she said, and added that Piolo is really boyfriend material for her.
