Kapamilya actress Kim Chiu has admitted that she has indeed settled her differences with ex-boyfriend Gerald Anderson and erstwhile best friend Maja Salvador, as earlier reported.
The 23-year-old star told ABS-CBN News on Wednesday that she is “very happy” with the decision, something that has given her much-needed “relief” just in time for her birthday.
Chiu maintained that the reconciliation was not planned. She said she gave in to the idea because “wala naman na talaga (problema) so bakit ka pa magho-hold ng grudge?”
Asked if she is now communicating regularly with the couple, Chiu answered, “Yeah. Kung ano lang ‘yung nangyari tapos, ‘hi, hello, ‘bye.’ Ganun.”
Chiu added, “Life goes on. Tanggapin na lang natin lahat ng nangyari kasi it’s part of our life. I-enjoy lang natin ang buhay.”
Early this month, Anderson confirmed the reconciliation did happen, as reported by writer turned part time actor Ogie Diaz on Twitter.
The two former bestfriends had a falling out when Salvador and Anderson admitted being in a relationship.
The 25-year-old actor said he is willing to work with Chiu again.
“Of course. We are in one family, we are in ABS-CBN. Siyempre marami pa ring fans na nag-aabang. Why not? In the future sige. One step at a time. Hindi naman natin pwede madaliin,” Anderson said.
Though Maja Salvador and Kim Chiu are yet to comment on their reported reconciliation, Gerald Anderson took it upon himself to confirm the matter in an interview.
“It’s good. It’s true. Everyone is happy so love, love, love. It’s something I really don’t want to comment on kasi before that, everything was so publicized. Nabalita sa media. So this is something na… it happened, so it’s really good,” the actor told ABS-CBN News on Thursday.
Gerald, Maja and Kim reportedly patched things up during a Dreamscape party on Sunday.
It was showbiz writer Ogie Diaz who broke the news on Instagram, posting a photo showing Kim, her sister Kam and Gerald talking.
His caption read: “Ako mismo happy kasi bukod sa ok na sina Maja at Kim, ok na rin sina Gerald at Kim. Ayan at tsikahan sila diyan sa #dreamscape party last Sunday bilang all’s well that ends well. Kaya happy na rin diyan (nasa gitna) ang ate ni Kim. Sabi nga sa akin ni Kim, ‘Tama na ang galit-galit. Everybody happy!’”
Gerald expressed that he is open to working with Kim again, saying, “Of course. We are in one family, we are in ABS-CBN. Siyempre marami pa ring fans na nag-aabang. Why not? In the future, sige.”
However, he noted, “One step at a time. Hindi naman natin pwede madaliin.”
Gerald and Kim last appeared together on the big screen via “24/7 In Love” in 2012.
They were also recently reported to be working together for an endorsement.
It seems that actresses and former bestfriends Maja Salvador and Kim Chiu have buried the hatchet.
On Sunday, showbiz writer Ogie Diaz tweeted about the supposed reconciliation between the two Kapamilya stars during Dreamscape’s thanksgiving party.
“Yehey! Bati na pala sina @dprincessmaja at @prinsesachinita last week. Nagkita sila at nagkatsikahan na. #SarapNgFeeling,” he wrote.
The post has been retweeted 299 times and favorited 377 times as of this writing.
Even actor Gerald Anderson – Maja’s current and Kim’s ex-boyfriend – has also made peace with the latter, claimed Ogie in another post.
“Usap na din sina gerald at @prinsesachinita kanina. Nagbibiruan pa nga sila. All’s well that ends well. ‘Sarap ng walang kaaway!’ –kim,” he tweeted shortly.
Dreamscape executive Eric John Salut seems to have seconded the hints that Maja and Kim are now in good terms, tweeting, “Finally, they have reconciled. Thank you LORD. Bless them more Oh LORD,” without making any direct reference.
He also posted on Instagram a photo of Gerald posing with Kim’s older sister, Kam Chiu, and Dreamscape head Deo Endrinal.
The rift allegedly began when Gerald confirmed being in a relationship with Maja early last year.
Maja has expressed optimism to making amends with Kim in a recent interview, while the love team “Kimerald” was recently reunited in a pictorial last February.
