MANILA, Philippines—Angel Locsin consistently admits she has opened her doors to former flame Luis Manzano.

“Hindi po ako ipokrito. Honest lang po ako. Hindi ko po ugali pigilan ang emosyon ko (I’m not a hypocrite. I am just being honest. It’s not my nature to suppress my emotion,” she said in successive radio and TV interviews on Wednesday night.

She said she had a series of encounters with Manzano, which started on New Year’s Eve when he reportedly visited her in her house.

“We talked a lot about the differences we had. But I’m not saying we’re a couple already. There are still some things to be settled,” she explained in Filipino.

She earlier admitted her love for Manzano has always been there despite the years they were not communicating.

In the past couple of years, Locsin was exclusively dating football player Phil Younghusband while Manzano was involved with actress Jennylyn Mercado.

Also early Wednesday, she said Manzano visited her in her dressing room before she guested in the showbiz-oriented radio talk show hosted by Jobert Sucaldito and later, in Boy Abunda’s segment in ABS-CBN’s “Bandila.”

“Feeling sya,” Locsin said, using a colloquial term for over-confidence.

Locsin is giving interviews to promote her upcoming soap opera titled “The Legal Wife” in her home network.

Meanwhile in a separate interview also on Wednesday, Younghusband told select members of the entertainment press that he still loves Locsin.

In social media, local showbiz followers are thrilled of the seemingly real-life soap opera between Locsin and Manzano.

Many said it was a refreshing topic from the surreal headlines in the past few days.

Locsin’s admission came a day after President Benigno Aquino III rejected the proposals of some sectors for him to have emergency powers to deal with the country’s energy problems while his sister, actress-TV host Kris, confessed she’s blessed because she’s not having sex.


Kris: Bine-bless ako kasi wala akong sex!

Aquino: I never asked for emergency powers

    The fact Kris said what she said, means she is hungry and desperate for sex

    When it comes to choosing the right man or the right athlete, my mom Kris Aquino is an expert. She has a wealth of experience in this area. My mom Kris agrees that Angel Locsin should hook up again wih Lucky Manzano. According to my mom Kris, Phil Younghusband is just a national athlete with no big fat bankbook to show for. In terms of athletic and sexual stamina, Phil might outlast Lucky hands down on any given day. That’s my mom Kris speaking from experience. But athletes are a dime a dozen. They can even be bought for a price and a contract. Just like James Yap, whose services my mom Kris bought for a price and a contract. Part of the contract includes services such as inseminating and fertilizing my mom Kris’ aging eggs. Before James was finally selected from a roster of possible mates, my mom Kris subjected him to a rigorous battery of exams to make sure he did not have incurable hereditary diseases in his genes or any such. Just like animal husbandry. After my little brother Bimby came out and James was done with his contractual obligations, it was time to dismiss him. With my little brother Bimby’s umbilical cord blood safely kept in a hospital, there won’t be a need for James and his services ever. From here on to 2046, my little brother Bimby is well on his way to become the president of this country. Judging by how much the masa and bakya crowd showered my little brother Bimby with their love and affection in My Little Bossings, my mom Kris could even run for the senate in 2016.

    Going back to Angel and Lucky, there’s a good chance that Angel might become part of the first family in 2016 should Vilma Darna decide to make a run for the presidency and win. Lucky not only has a big fat bankbook to show for, he might just make Angel the luckiest presidential daughter-in-law ever. Now that’s not something a young husband can easily do. That’s why Angel will be better off with Lucky, according to my mom Kris. Sex or no sex, let’s not be hypocrites.

      bakit blessing daw na wala ng sex si mommy mo? wala ng sex dahil wala ng naloko, o walang ng sex dahil ayaw ng “prospective recruits” magka tulo?

      medyo hindi kapanipaniwala considering ang katakawan ni mommy mo sa sex.

        Tito Adam, nagkatulo po kasi si Uncle James from my mom Kris. People in the showbiz circle know about this. In PBA locker rooms, they also know about this. But of course, we don’t talk about this openly in polite society. Other than that one time when my mom Kris opened herself up in public and invited everyone to examine her on national TV.

    Luis is rich, son of two known politicians with mother even a celebrity. Phil is just a humble football player who owns a football school with his brother. Is it not obvious that Angel prefers a rich guy? One time, she said she preferred a guy who’s financially secured and who could be a good provider.


    akala kasi ni Angel magchampion ang mga Azkals at tuloy-tuloy na ang endorsements (aka PERA).. yun pala mga losers lang at mga ASKAL.. kaya syempre, bumalik kay Luis kahit babalu.. marami naman nakurakot nanay nya sa Batangas and he’s the only son.. which means lahat ng nakurakot mapupunta rin kay Lucky.. Lucky talaga sya na naging anak sya ni Vilma.. the former bold star.. LOL.. alam naman nating lahat na mukhang pera talaga yan si Angel.. kaya nga nagpose sa FHM at lumipat pa sa Dos kahit ok naman kinikita nya sa GMA at sikat pa sya doon.. ayan tuloy sa sobrang gahaman sa pera nalaos.. LOL

    Who knows what Luis and Angel are doing while Phil is away for a game overseas when they were still together…hmmmmm

  • Pinsan_ni_Mang_Kanor

    Na intrigue tuloy ako. Gusto ko tuloy panoorin ang the Legal wife. Kung hindi dahil sa revelation ni Angel di ko mapapanood ang the legal wife

  • Pinsan_ni_Mang_Kanor

    May new show ba si Kris para mapanood ko din, kasi lumalabas na naman sya sa news eh
