MANILA, Philippines – Broadcast journalist and “TV Patrol” anchor Korina Sanchez has laughed off rumors that she and her equally famous husband, Transportation and Communications Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas II, are now living separately.

Sanchez reiterated that they are still together and are very much in love with each other.

Korina Sanchez says she and Mar Roxas are still together and very much in love with each other.

“Mahihirapan sila kaming paghiwalayin. Alam mo ang sabi niya sa akin noong isang araw, ‘Honey ang malas mo.’ ‘Bakit?” sabi ko. ‘I will never leave you.’ Sabi niya sa akin ganoon. ‘You’re stuck with me,’” Sanchez told “The Buzz.” “Sabi niya minsan, ‘Ang malas ko talaga.’ Sabi ko, ‘Bakit?’ ‘Malas, sobra kitang mahal.’”

The broadcast journalist said this is not the first time that they have been rumored to have ended their marriage. She pointed out that there seems to be a campaign meant to break them.

“Sabi ko nga Diyos ko talagang mga chismosang intrigerong ito. Sabi kong ganyan ‘yong hindi kami nakikita hiwalay na kami. ‘Yong nakita kami, nagpapanggap lang kami. Sabi ko ibang klase ito. Hindi na tsismis ito, kampanya na ito ng paninira,” she said.

There are speculations that Sanchez has been neglecting her husband due to her busy schedule, but the “TV Patrol” anchor denied it. “Hoy, ang gwapo ni Mar ngayon, care of (pointing to herself)... nagyo-yoga kami pareho... we talk about a lot of things together.”

As to the issue that there is a third party, Sanchez said they are not making a big deal out of it.

“Natatawa pa nga ako kay Mar. ‘Hoy, pinag-uusapan dito na hiwalay na tayo. Umuwi ka na galing New York. Akala ata nila hiwalay na talaga tayo’…. ‘My third party daw.’ Sabi niya, ‘Talaga, sino ‘yong lalaki?’ (Laughs) ‘Anong ako, ikaw ‘yong nachi-chismis na may babae,’” she said.

She added that the “names that have come up are really ridiculous.”

She also said that Roxas has never given her any reason to be jealous of anybody.

Meanwhile, Sanchez said they are already planning to have a baby. “Pinag-usapan na namin ng seryoso na simulan na ang proseso ng paghahanda. I’m taking care of my body, I’ve been talking to my OB-gynecologist again.”

Sanchez admitted that she is excited but she doesn’t want to have high hopes. “I’m sure mahihirapan na ako but I believe that God believes in me. I’ve been such a good girl, I’m sure yan ang kanyang regalo sa lahat ng sakripisyo sa buhay ko na bibigyan niya ako ng isang anak.”

She said she will always be honored to be Roxas’ wife and that she will love him forever.
