MANILA – Kim Chiu confirmed that she and Maja Salvador are indeed rebuilding their friendship after they became estranged for a year.
The two Kapamilya actresses made headlines in the past when Salvador confirmed her relationship with Gerald Anderson, who also became Chiu's boyfriend after their stint on the reality TV series "Pinoy Big Brother."
After being together for over a year, Anderson admitted his breakup with Salvador in March this year.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Sunday, Chiu said she is happy that she and Salvador no longer have any animosity towards each other.
“Friends talaga kami. And mas maganda mag-forgive kaysa buong buhay mo may burden sa loob. Mas masaya na walang kaaway,” she simply said.
Just last week, Salvador could not help but get teary-eyed as she opened up about Chiu in an interview on "Tonight With Boy Abunda."
While Salvador refused to provide details of what exactly happened to them in the past, she stressed that what's more important is that she and Chiu are okay now.
"May mga bagay na kami lang ni Kim ang nakakaalam at ayaw ko na pong idetalye 'yon at ayaw ko na ding balikan. Kasi ngayon sobrang happy ako na okay kami ni Kim na minsan parang pabalik na 'yung friendship," Salvador said.
"Kasi minsan iba kaming mag-usap sa 'ASAP.' Sobrang masaya ako kung ano ang estado, kung ano ang mayroon kami ni Kim, papuntang friendship po. Kasi kung nawasak 'yung dati, sobrang nadurog ito, paunti-unti binubuo," she added.
