1. Alden Richards reacts to being blamed for Maine Mendoza being linked to other guys
Alden Richards' love team partner, Maine Mendoza, is currently being linked to Arjo Atayde. Maine and Arjo were recently spotted hanging out together, which lead to AlDub fans "blaming" Alden for not being successful in transitioning AlDub's on-screen romance to real life. When asked about it, Alden answered, "Naiintindihan ko naman po 'yun at hindi ko naman aalisin sa kanila 'yun. Sanay na rin po ako na for the longest time that AlDub has begun. Nandiyan pa rin naman po ang Aldub at wala naman pong nagsabi na tapos na siya."
He added, "Tanggap ko na po 'yun sa mga detractors at hindi ko na po maiaalis 'yun sa kanila. Sa tagal ko na rin pong nakakatanggap ng hate comments, never naman po akong sumagot. At kahit ano pa po siguro ang sabihin nila, hindi pa rin po ako sasagot. Mas tahimik po ang buhay ko nang ganito." (PEP.ph)
