Maine Mendoza broke her silence about her rumored romance with Arjo Atayde, saying,”We’re going out as friends.”

“We’re in the getting to know each other phase,” Mendoza said in a press conference for her upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival entry “Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles” held Thursday. A video of the interview was uploaded on the YouTube page.


“Syempre, paano mo makikilala yung isang tao kung di kayo magsasama at magu-usap?” Mendoza continued. However, she evaded further questions about their relationship.

Meanwhile, Mendoza said she now feels independent when it comes to choosing her desired projects. “Nagagawa ko na rin yung gusto ko ngayon bilang tao and bilang artista (I can now do what I want as a person and as an artist),” she said.


And how does she feel now that “Eat Bulaga” will be transferring to their new home in APT Studios in Cainta, Rizal? “Excited na medyo malungkot kasi iiwanan na namin yung studio (Broadway Centrum),” she said. “Although three years pa lang ako doon, nalulungkot ako.”

(Excited but also sad because we’re leaving the studio. Although I was only there for three years, I’m sad to be leaving the place.)

Mendoza and Atayde are co-stars in the upcoming comedy film, but the latter did not attend the press conference. Rumors about their relationship started when they were spotted together in numerous places, and was even speculated they had a vacation together in Bali, Indonesia.  Katrina Hallare /ra
