Are Piolo Pascual and actress Shaina Magdayao dating? PEP.ph reported that the duo was spotted sharing a meal at a Greenhills restaurant, and hanging out at a videoke bar with friends. When asked about the status of their relationship, the actor said, "Shaina and I are friends. Yes, she's special," Piolo said.
He admitted he's ready for the intrigues that the press might throw at him, because it's all part of being an actor. "They will always do that, they will always have an opinion about what they see." But Piolo said he'd rather keep this private for Shaina's sake. “There are things that you want to keep to yourself para maka-prevent ka rin ng mga nakaka-offend na bagay. Even for Shai, I wanted to be able to... di mo rin maalis, kasi showbiz tayo. Pero siyempre, gusto ko rin naman siyang protektahan."
