“Baka hindi ako mahilig makipaglandian sa trabaho.”
These were the words of Bea Alonzo after Ethel Booba prodded her to reveal who among her past leading men did she have a romantic relationship with in the past.
Ethel, in her one-on-one interview with Bea last March, asked the award-winning actress who among her leading men courted her in real life. The said clip went viral after a netizen uploaded it on TikTok.
Ethel asked Bea: “Sa mga naging leading man mo, sino ‘yung mga totoong nanligaw sa ’yo?”
According to Bea, none of her onscreen partners in the past made an attempt to court her.
“Leading man? Teka isa-isahin nga natin. Si Derek (Ramsay), hindi. Si Sam (Milby), definitely, hindi. Si John Lloyd (Cruz) ‘di naman naging kami. Parang wala,” Bea said.
To which Ethel quickly responded with: “Wala ba?”
Bea then replied by saying: “Wala. Kasi kahit si Papa Paulo (Avelino). Eh si Paulo sobrang lapit nu’n saken. Baka hindi ako mahilig makipaglandian sa trabaho. Ang hirap. Mag-aaway kayo sa taping, ‘di ba?”
The 33-year-old actress then made it clear that while she and Zanjoe were once a couple, it took six years before they officially became an item.
“Si Zanjoe hindi ko naging leading man ata. Ay naging leading man ko sa MMK. Pero naging kami five or six years later pa. So hindi dahil nakatrabaho ko siya,” Bea remarked.
