Angel Locsin, Luis Manzano LQ, may third party involved?
Just when things are getting rosier between them, rumors are spreading that Angel Locsin and Luis Manzano are having an “LQ” (Lovers’ Quarrel). Or, a lot of people are asking, have they broken up (following in the footsteps of Dingdong Dantes and Karylle, Paolo Contis and Isabel Oli, Beth Tamayo and her non-showbiz businessman-husband and, of course, Drs. Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho)?
Was that why Angel cried last Sunday when she guested on The Buzz to promote (with leading man Piolo Pascual) their Star Cinema starrer Love Me Again (showing nationwide starting today)?
Since neither Angel nor Luis is talking just yet, I asked the next reliable source — Luis’ mom, Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos, who else!
Here’s Vilma’s texted reply: They are not talking to me yet. Waiting din ako. Don’t want to ask until they tell me kasi it might appear that I am meddling. I asked Luis if he’s okay at ang sagot lang niya ay “Yup.” Ayoko na muna mag-follow up. Waiting din ako.
I have news for Gov. Vilma (according to a Funfare DPA): Angel and Luis did have a quarrel which started small and became bigger, although not yet so serious that it can’t be ironed out. “There’s a third party involved,” added the DPA who refused to reveal who between the lovers is...”guilty?”
The “LQ” came on the heels of the last leg of the promo for Love Me Again which was shot 50/50 at a ranch in Bukidnon and another ranch in Australia. Nope, Piolo is not the “third party” the DPA was referring to. Luis knows fully well that Piolo and Angel are just good friends, nothing more and nothing less.
“I admire Angel,” said Piolo. “She’s willing to work, she wants to excel, she’s down-to-earth. On the Australia set, we helped each other carry props and equipment, Angel included, because we had a limited crew.”
First teamed up in the ABS-CBN soap Lobo, Piolo and Angel have a passionate love scene in Love Me Again but it’s not enough to make Luis “jealous” or “insecure,” according to the DPA. “Basta,” said the DPA. “Basta...”
Incidentally, in another scene, Angel slaps Piolo no less than six times, right smack on his pretty face.
Said direk Rory Quintos, “It had to be done that way because I had to take shots from different angles. But Angel apologized to Piolo after every take.”
Quipped Piolo, “That’s how I realized that acting is really a ‘painful’ job.”
