Angelica Panganiban was triggered when she recently appeared on her online show to promote her latest film Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes.
In the final episode of #AskAngelica, the 31-year-old actress and comedienne answered questions based on popular movies. Known and loved by many for her candor, Angelica gamely dished out relationship advice from situations depicted in romantic movies.
Angelica started out calm and collected when talking about giving second chances. She shared, "Siguro mas magandang chance na lang ay maging magkaibigan kayo o magkapatawaran na lang kayo. Pero 'yung bigyan mo pa ng chance, ano siya sinuswerte? Hindi rin!" She added, "'Yung chance ibigay mo sa others kasi baka 'yung others na 'yun eh talaga namang 'di ka saktan at all. Kaya nga ex kasi X is wrong. 'Wag mong piliting gawing check, X 'yun eh."
When the topic of third parties in relationships was raised, things went a little different, "Tigilan niyo 'yung may mga asawa, tigilan niyo 'yung may mga ka-relasyon na. 'Pag may ka-relasyon na, huwag niyo pilitin sirain. Maghanap kayo ng iba. Ang daming lalaki, ang daming babae. Huwag niyo guluhin 'yung mga taong masasaya. Ano, nagkaubusan ng lalaki? 'Pag may relasyon na, may relasyon na! Huwag niyong inaagaw."
But things took an even more interesting turn when Angelica started to include her own experiences into the narrative (excuse us, Taylor Swift). "Tapos kung makapag-post kayo, akala niyo mga wala kayong sinaktan. Kunwari masaya kayo, eh 'di wow! Parang hindi ka inagawan. Excuse me, ha! Inagaw mo lang 'yan sa akin! Tapos ikaw pa ang proud. Tigilan niyo 'yan," she said.
Angelica, while never directly addressing issues about her breakups with her celebrity ex-boyfriends, remained open about her dealing with heartbreak and often injected humor in sharing it. At one point, when asked about regaining trust, she answered firmly, "Never!" But playing around with the word "trust," she joked, "Iyon nga, eh, hindi sila nag-trust. Kaya iyon ang kinalabasan. Bibili sila ngayon ng mga gamit pambata!"
Kidding aside, Angelica continued on her thoughts on trust, "Binigay mo 'yan ng buong-buo, eh. Binigay ko 'yan sa 'yo nang purong-puro. Kapag nilamatan mo 'yan, hindi mo na 'yan makakalimutan. Lagi na 'yang may scar."
The multi-awarded actress previously had romantic relationships with celebrities Carlo Aquino, Derek Ramsey, and John Lloyd Cruz. Angelica's most recent ex-bf, John Lloyd, has been open on social media in spending time with rumored new girlfriend Ellen Adarna. The two are also reportedly expecting their first child together.
