"Mahal mo na ba si Mccoy de Leon?"
This was the straight question thrown at former "Pinoy Big Brother" (PBB) housemate Elisse Joson during her appearance on the late night talk show "Tonight with Boy Abunda" on Tuesday.
The two have been linked romantically since their friendship formed inside the "PBB" house.
Appearing a bit embarrassed, Joson replied: "Masyado pa pong maaga para sa salitang mahal po pero I can say that I care for him."
Asked if De Leon is courting her, she said: "He's not very vocal and he's very quiet. Mas ipapakita niya po. Ang hirap po magsalita pero nakikita ko na sa lahat ng pinapakita niya ay iniisip niya po ako at kung ano ang iisipin ng nanay ko."
De Leon earlier admitted liking Joson. He frequentlysshared sweet moments with the teen actress while inside the "PBB" house and was visibly disheartened when Joson was revealed as the evictee last weekend.
