Zanjoe Marudo is happy with where he is right now in his life.
Speculations that The Tubig At Langis star is in a sad place started ever since news of his breakup with his longtime girlfriend Bea Alonzo came out.
“Steady lang, ganon pa rin. Busy sa trabaho and sa ibang bagay,” said Zanjoe when asked about his love life in an interview during his recently concluded 3rd Z Cup held at Capitol Hills Golf Club.
Despite his busy schedule while taping his soap with Isabelle Daza and Cristine Reyes, Zanjoe still made sure to organize his 3rd Z Cup which is for the benefit of the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s Reception and Study Center for Children. Instead of just inviting celebrity golf players this year, Zanjoe opened the 3rd Z Cup to non-showbiz personalities in order to be able to gather more funds for the chosen charity.
But keeping himself busy with other things is seemingly not a mere defense mechanism for Zanjoe as he stressed that he is in a good place in his life right now.
“Moved on. Hindi ko alam, paano ba malalaman kung naka move-on? Pero happy ako ngayon kung ano ang nangyayari sakin. Happy ako sa buhay ko and ‘yun ang importante doon,” he said.
What is more is that, despite parting ways, Zanjoe shared that he and Bea are on speaking terms.
“Masasabi kong okay kami. Kapag nagka-text kami, normal naman. So siguro masasabi ko na kapag magkikita kami sa isang lugar hindi kami magiiwasan. Hindi kami matatakot na ‘Nako baka nandoon siya,’” he explained. “Okay kami.”
But will there be a second chance for them?
“Sa ngayon ewan ko pero hindi natin masasabi eh. Ang importante naman eh hindi kami magkaaway. Diba? So maraming pwedeng nangyari,” he said.
As Zanjoe directly answered the possibility of getting back together, he also addressed the persistent rumors linking Bea with her A Second Chance co-star John Lloyd Cruz.
“Actually kilala ko naman sila. Wala naman akong issue about doon. Wala naman akong puwedeng sabihin, totoo man or hindi. Sila naman ang dapat na sumasagot sa mga ganung bagay,” he said.
It may be recalled that both Bea and John Lloyd have denied the issue. They even reiterated that they are just good friends.
Apart from Tubig at Langis, Zanjoe shared that he will be starring in a new film within the year.
