Ria Atayde on claim that Arjo was ‘friendzoned’ by Maine Mendoza: ‘Hala, epal’
Actress Ria Atayde questioned a claim saying she allegedly admitted that her brother Arjo Atayde was “friendzoned” by Maine Mendoza.
A fan of Mendoza’s love team with actor Alden Richards, commonly known as AlDub, alleged that Ria spoke up about her older brother’s relationship with Mendoza. The netizen (@LEsteban0) also took a jab at the supporters of Arjo and Mendoza’s love team, ArMaine, via Twitter yesterday, June 8.
“PAANO NA NGAYON MGA ARMAINE,” the fan said. “UMAMIN NA PALA SI RIA ATAYDE NA NAFRIENDZONE LANG YUNG KAPATID [NIYA] KAY MAINE…WALA NA NEGOSYO LUGI NA.”
(How about that ArMaine? Ria Atayde admitted that her brother was friendzoned by Maine. It is over, business is closed.)

“Ha? Hahaha hala epal,” Ria answered, retweeting the post today, July 9. (What? [Laughs] Oh, attention seeker.)

Arjo and Maine have been keeping a low profile as a couple, as the latter previously admitted that some of her fans do not support her personal love life. The couple marked their first anniversary last December.
Mendoza rose to stardom as Yaya Dub in the noontime variety show “Eat Bulaga!” where she was first paired with Richards. She and Richards have both been vocal that they are just friends.
The actress had also defended Arjo and Ria from accusations that they are just “using” Mendoza to get projects. Mendoza requested her followers on social media to respect the Atayde family, stressing that these stars get their own projects because of their talent and not out of “any other reasons.”
Arjo and Ria are the children of veteran actress Sylvia Sanchez. Meanwhile, Mendoza marked her 5th year in showbiz last Saturday, July 4. JB
