Angelica Panganiban says she almost hired a private investigator to check on an ex-bf
Kapamilya actress Angelica Panganiban is known for her no-holds-barred attitude in life, love and career. Just as she’ll do everything for the man she loves, she will also do everything to bust out if something goes wrong, to the extent of almost hiring a private investigator to discover a partner’s extra-curricular activity.
“Ay umabot ako d’un, Ate [Judy Ann Santos], ‘yung nagpapa-hire na ko ng [private] investigator. [I thought] Magpa-hire na kaya ako kasi nahuli akong sumusunod eh [Laughs]. Pero matagal na ‘yun,” she revealed at the recently held bloggers’ conference for her movie “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes” she top-bills with drama queen Judy Ann Santos.
For the women who may be thinking of doing the same, Panganiban shared how much, more or less, has to be prepared to hire a professional private investigator and get the job done.
“Mahal pala nu’ng mga ‘yun, mga hundred thousand ganon. Seryoso. Pero matagal nilang susundan … ‘yung hangga’t may makuha silang pruweba,” she added.
Santos butted in and said, “Hundred thousand? Ang mahal na katotohanan naman n’un.”
She did not name names but the “hugot queen” dropped clues about who she was talking about.
“Matagal na ‘yan, eight years ago, seven years ago,” bringing the audience to laughter.
But her showbiz big sis warned her not to give too much clues as she might accidentally name the guy.
“‘Pag sumagot ka pa alam na kung sino ‘yan, ‘pag tinuloy mo ‘yang mga pagdadaldal na ‘yan konti na lang initials na kasunod niyan,” Santos joked.
In the heat of the moment, Panganiban shared one more instance of her busting out an ex-boyfriend’s fling.
“Umabot ako sa ganong katangahan tapos minsan eh … ,” everyone laughed in eagerness to know what the “hugot queen” has to say next.
“Nahuli ako sa kusina, hindi kasi ako mapakali eh, ilaw nang ilaw ‘yung cellphone eh, may nag-te-text sa kanya eh! Kinuha ko ngayon ‘yung cellphone,” she said and thereafter, described what she did.
“Eto talaga eksena ko, tinitignan ko ‘yung cellphone, basa-basa, [talking to herself] naku ‘talaga naman, may babae ka talaga, may babae ka talaga!’ Sumilip [him] dun sa kusina sabi, ‘huy, [ano’ng] ginagawa mo dyan?’ Sabi ko: ‘nakabukas kasi yung gasul, pinapatay ko,” she narrated. The audience shrieked in laughter.
‘[Then he asked] ba’t mo hawak ‘yung cellphone ko? [She answered] ginamit ko ‘yung ilaw,” she said as she herself burst in laughter.
Panganiban has caught the headlines again following her bitter separation from ex-boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz over his alleged infidelity. Cruz is linked to sexy actress Ellen Adarna with whom he has reportedly fathered a child.
Both have since been mum about the issue, nor have made any public confirmation about the real status of their relationship. They however, keep their fans hungry for more revelations through their social media posts.
“Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes” hits cinemas starting January 17.
