MANILA - Karylle recently crossed paths with actress Marian Rivera, whose husband, film star Dingdong Dantes, was formerly in a relationship with the "It's Showtime" mainstay.
The chance meeting was revealed by Vice Ganda, Karylle's "It's Showtime" co-host, during the noontime program's live episode Monday.
The topic was brought up during the show's "Tawag ng Tanghalan" segment, wherein a contestant shared that he recently learned of the wedding of his ex-girlfriend.
Co-host Jhong Hilario asked Vice Ganda how he would feel if he were in a similar situation. The comedian initially tried to gather words to answer, but ended up diverting the issue towards Karylle, who was sitting as a judge on the singing competition.
"Tanungin natin si Karylle kasi nagkita sila ni Dingdong noong isang araw, eh!" Vice Ganda said. "Nakasalubong niya sa isang show. Sabi niya, nakasalubong niya si Marian."
Vice Ganda went on to share details about the meeting, as supposedly told to him by Karylle in a personal conversation. Karylle did not appear to contradict the comedian's revelations.
Referring to Karylle, Vice Ganda narrated: "Gandang-ganda daw siya kay Marian. Bineso niya raw. Pag-beso niya, 'Uy, ang ganda naman.'
"Tapos pag talikod niya, na-realize niya na ang payapa na pala talaga ng puso nila, kasi nag-beso sila, tapos gandang-ganda raw siya kay Marian."
Karylle then clarified, when teased by Vice Ganda, that she only said "hi" to Dantes, with whom Rivera now has a two-year-old daughter named Zia.
Karylle and Dantes broke up in 2008. At the time, Dantes had just finished work on the teleserye "Marimar", where he was paired with Rivera.
The timing triggered speculation that an affair between Rivera and Dantes caused the breakup, but this was denied by both.
Rivera and Dantes got married in December 2014, nine months after Karylle's wedding with rock star Yael Yuzon.
