Nothing romantic between Jake Cuenca, Melissa Ricks
JAKE Cuenca says Melissa Ricks is just a close friend and it's not true that he's courting her. "I'm not ready to get into another relationship again," he says. "Pi-nipigilan ko muna ang sarili ko to love again kasi may mga bagay pa akong dapat ayusin sa sarili ko after my past relationships. Hindi pa ako handa. Anyway, 21 pa lang naman ako and I enjoy being single. I think marami pa akong time in the world to engage in another relationship. Meantime, I'm just happy to be given good projects like 'Tayong Dalawa' na marami namang nakapansin sa acting ko."
But if ever he'd be ready to woo someone again, would it be Melissa? "We don't know. But anyone can fall for her kasi maganda na siya, mahusay pang umarte at masayang kasama at kausap. Sabi, kailangan daw munang humingi ng permiso sa parents niya bago siya ligawan. I've met them and they're very nice to me, but as of now, wala talaga akong balak ligawan ang kahit sino so wala rin akong balak to ask for her parents' permission. Kasi if I'd do that, ibig sabihin, serious and ready na ako to get into a new relationship, which I'm not. I’m just too busy with work now."
He's paired with Cristine Reyes in his new soap, the afternoon offering in ABS-CBN's Hapontastic, "Precious Hearts Romance Presents Bud Brothers." He appears in the first episode, "Stupid Cupid," directed by Jerry Sineneng. Cristine plays a single mom who stays temporarily in a home she doesn't know is owned by Jake. At first, they fight a lot but eventually end up in each other's arms. How's it acting with Cristine?
"Mahusay siya, impressed ako. Very intense as an actress and I enjoyed working with her. She's very cooperative even in the love scenes we did. Masarap katrabaho."
