Since her breakup with John Lloyd Cruz—her boyfriend of three years—in 2016, and since posts of him with Ellen Adarna have stirred controversy, Angelica has been throwing more and more hugot lines here and there. Now dubbed the "Hugot Queen," the star of Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes expressed her thoughts and feelings in a book titled Para Kay Ex, written by Beau Ang with a foreword by Angelica herself.
At the book launch and book signing, held on February 24 at National Bookstore in TriNoma, Angelica was asked about the book, specifically about her exes. While her fans and the press were already entertained by her candor, the energy of the crowd went ten notches higher when Carlo Aquino, one of her exes, suddenly showed up with a bouquet of flowers.
As the fans were screaming, Carlo explained his presence at the launch, "'Yong title kasi [ng libro ay] Para Kay Ex. Parang nararapat lang na kahit may isang ex man lang [narito bilang] representative ng mga ex mo."
A surprised Angelica could only say, "Hayop ka!" Later on, she told him, "Pumirma ka na rin kaya."
Angelica and Carlo dated for more than six years, and broke up sometime in 2006. The former child stars were both part of the hit youth-oriented variety show Ang TV. They were paired in other hit TV shows like G-mik and Berks.
