Oh, how quickly things change. Just two weeks ago in "Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin," Bianca (Kim Chiu) and Gabriel (Gerald Anderson) were basking in their post-engagement glow

This week, after a few episodes trying his best to show that he still cares for Bianca despite their breakup with the hope that she'll change her mind, Gabriel is ready to move on in life. And his first step? Get a new job under a new boss. 

That's how he met Alex, portrayed by Arci Muñoz, who was added to the cast of the daytime drama with JC Santos. 

Like Gabriel, Alex is also a former triathlete, who now focuses on her business of distributing energy drinks. They quickly hit it off, with Alex looking very impressed with Gabriel as he shows he can charm just about anybody to sell their product. 

But in addition to the latest twist, fans were also abuzz over Muñoz, who looked different from just few months ago when she starred in "Can We Still Be Friends?" with Anderson. 

Many pointed out her suspiciously different-looking nose, although she has never admitted to having it altered. 

In an interview with Pep, the actress addressed the criticisms and said that there's nothing wrong if she did have plastic surgery. 

Refusing to deny the rumors that she went under the knife, she said: "Deny? No, never, what's wrong with that? As if naman I committed a crime." 

She also said that she doesn't pay attention to any of the hate she has been receiving online. 

"Hindi ako nagbabasa. Actually, hindi naman ako mahilig sa social media. Sabi ko nga, I’m just really amazed how people have so much time, they have so much time to things like this."
