MANILA - Actress Angelica Panganiban admitted that she had a hard time telling her best friend, John Prats, that she and John Lloyd Cruz are already in a relationship
This is because at that time, Cruz had just broken up with actress Shaina Magdayao, who is also Prat's former girlfriend.
Prior to her relationship with Cruz, Panganiban said that she and Prats even bashed John Lloyd and Shaina--an attempt to help Prats move on.
''Pero alam naman 'yun ni Lloydie ngayon. Para maka-move on siya (Prats), sabi ko, 'ano ka ba, kaya mo 'yan! Isipin mo di sila bagay, maghihiwalay din sila!' Ako pala 'yung magiging dahilan,'' she laughingly shared on "Gandang Gabi Vice" aired on Sunday.
Host Vice Ganda, intrigued, asked Panganiban: "A, so ikaw ang dahilan kaya sila naghiwalay?"
"Feeling ko," answered, Panganiban, star of the movie, ''Thing Called Tadhana."
Prats admitted that it was really awkward for him to see his best friend date the former boyfriend of his ex-girlfriend.
But, he said, it all became okay when he talked to John Lloyd personally.
"Alam ko na naman noon,'' he said. "Sabi ko, seryoso ba 'yan? Paano nangyari 'to? Tapos eventually noong Star Magic Ball, nag-usap na kami ni Lloydie. Sabi ko sa kanya, 'basta alagaan mo 'tong best friend ko.'"
