On August 23, Vangie appeared on TV Patrol South Central Mindanao and had a message for the two actresses recently linked to Gerald.
“Ayaw nga kita para sa kanya,” Vangie tells Bea. “Binabasura mo ang bata. Lagi mo pinatatamaan ang anak ko. Pati makeup artist mo, nagbitaw ng salita laban sa anak ko. Hindi naman ako pwedeng manahimik sa mga lumalabas na isyu, lalo na si Bea na humaharap talaga sa TV.”
Vangie didn’t let Julia off the hook either, even if Gerald and Julia both denied having an affair.
“Hindi ko naman sinasabi ayaw kita. No,” Vangie says, addressing Julia. “Ang akin lang, advice ko lang sa ‘yo, please, ayaw ko kasi may edad na rin si Gerald sa ‘yo. Hindi rin kayo magtatagal dahil alam ko nasa industriya ka rin.”
Gerald is eight years older than Julia. The two were paired for the film Between Maybes, which came out in May 2019.
People suspected Gerald and Julia were seeing each other behind Bea’s back when they were spotted hanging out at Rayver Cruz’s birthday party last month. When photos of Gerald and Julia surfaced online, Bea shared a quote that reads, "'You can’t make the same mistake twice, the second time you make it, it’s not a mistake anymore, it’s a choice.' ENOUGH." Bea and Gerald did not have a formal breakup.
Julia, who was severely bashed online, felt dragged into the mess through Bea’s posts and social media activity. She wrote in part on August 6, "Bea, you wanted to keep your hands clean by not mentioning me in your controversial post, but with a click of a finger, in your sly way, you have charged everybody to destroy me FOR YOU."
