MANILA – Empress Schuck said she did not take offense when her former “kabarkada” in showbiz, Kim Chiu, said on national television that the only person she considers her friend is her on-screen partner, Xian Lim.
Chiu and Schuck used to be in the same circle of friends until their group called “ChiuRiGoGoBaSchu” reportedly had a falling out in 2011.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Sunday, Schuck said she and Chiu have probably outgrown each other as they were both learning the ropes of the entertainment industry.
“Siguro masasabi ko lang na-outgrow namin yung mga sarili namin. Parang isang relationship, parang magkasama kayo sa umpisa pero habang tumatagal, nagiging ibang tao kayo. Hindi naman necessarily in a bad way. In a good way din naman,” she said.
Schuck, however, finds it just normal for people to also meet other friends and become to closer to them eventually.
“Meron namang nagse-separate kayo in a good way kasi may iba pala kayong gustong gawin. Nag-iba yung mga taong gusto mong samahan. Ganun naman yun eh. Nagbabago talaga ang mga tao,” she said.
While saying that they are still friends, Schuck said she is happy that Chiu now knows what she really wants in life.
“Masaya ako para sa kanya. Katulad nga noon, bata pa kami. May mga decisions kami na kung anu-ano lang. Ngayon, parepareho na kaming may isip. Alam na namin kung ano talaga ang totoong mundo na nangyayari. I think nakikita na talaga ni Kim kung ano ang dapat niya talaga makita. Masaya ako na nandun siya sa part na yun,” she said.
