Sa Tonight with Boy Abunda, inamin ni Kiefer Ravena na natakot siyang hihiwalayan siya ng girlfriend na si Alyssa Valdez dahil sa nude photo scandal na kinasangkutan niya last year. Ngunit suwerte daw siya na hindi siya iniwan ni Alyssa. “I was very fortunate to have her as my girlfriend and to be honest she never really left my side, even after. May scars, trust was broken, ang hirap tingnan sa mata and ang hirap mag-explain sa araw-araw. At the same time, she sacrificed a lot because she could have easily walked away, but she never did. And for that, you know you have a keeper, you know you have someone you can spend time with for the rest of your life.”
Todo suporta din daw si Alyssa ngayon sa pinagdadaanan niya matapos siyang i-ban ng International Basketball Federation o FIBA sa paglalaro ng basketball sa loob ng 18 months. “Kilala naman niya ako na hindi ko intensyon gawin yun.”
Napag-uusapan din daw nila ang marriage “every now and then.” “We’re not getting any younger na rin... Minsan pag nabi-bring up medyo uncomfortable. Alam naman namin yung priorities namin. Our priorities is to play basketball and her, volleyball, so we want to maximize our bodies, our time to doing the best in our sport.
Nag-suggest rin si host Boy Abunda na maglaro siya ng volleyball pansamantala. Ayon kay Kiefer, “Even us, we thought about that. Just to keep myself in shape and just to keep myself in a very competitive atmosphere.”
Faithful kaya si Kiefer kay Alyssa? “Yes, with everything that happened to us, to me. I think that’s the only thing I can return to her.”
