Janella Salvador recently played a fun ~drinking~ game with Pinoy Big Brother alums Joj and Jai Agpangan for their YouTube channel. The 23-year-old star and new mom shared a bunch of interesting facts we've never known about her: that her favorite and best love team partner is Joshua Garcia, that she's had four exes, and that she doesn't take friendships lightly.
"Big word ang friend sa akin," Janella explained. "So marami akong acquaintances sa showbiz pero hindi ko sila tinuturing na kaibigan. Kasi nga 'pag sinabi kong kaibigan ko, alam kong totoo na siya." She also revealed that she's not the type to be plastic to someone especially if she doesn't vibe well with the person.
While most of the game was lighthearted, the last question for Janella turned the mood a bit somber: "Kamusta kayo ni Julia Barretto?" ICYDK, Janella, Julia, and Liza Soberano were all launched together as part of Star Magic in 2013. They then grew up to be besties who supported each other in their respective careers. But in recent years, Julia has been absent in their get-togethers, most notably Liza's surprise baby shower for Janella in 2020.
"Ah, may ganoon," Janella said reacting to the ~controversial~ question. She then went to directly address the issue and said she and Julia no longer speak to each other. And although Julia reached out when she found out about Janella's pregnancy, things didn't "progress" for their friendship anymore:
"Honestly, hindi na kami nag-uusap ngayon ni Julia. And there was an issue before na hindi ko na sasabihin kung ano pero alam niyo na 'yon. Tapos nag-reach out siya nung nalaman niya buntis ako. Sinendan niya ako ng balloons tapos nag-thank you ako, pero hindi na nag-progress yung friendship namin."
What we find hopeful, though, is that Janella isn't closing her doors to Julia: "Pero open naman ako in the future if ever we cross paths again, then why not."
