Kim Chiu mentions Julia Barretto while looking through Gerald Anderson’s IG: ‘Ay bawal ba?’
Kim Chiu had to face ex-boyfriend Gerald Anderson while on “It’s Showtime”—at least through Instagram.
The actress, who is also a mainstay on the noontime show, was made to like photos of Anderson as a “funishment” in the segment “Mas Testing.”
Chiu seemed to hesitate as she said, “Hindi ko nga pina-follow ‘yun, e (I don’t even follow him)!”
“Bakit n’yo naman isasali ‘tong taong ‘to? Nananahimik na kami, ah! Isang dekada na ang nakalipas (Why would you include this guy? We were already at peace! It has already been a decade)!”
She also addressed boyfriend Xian Lim, whom she said was watching the show, assuring him that “this is just a game.”
As she went through Anderson’s Instagram, she quipped, “Ta’s pagbukas mo rito, nandito si Julia Barretto (Then when you open it, Julia Barretto is here).”
A clip of her remark about Barretto was captured by Twitter user @BrightRaytz.

After her co-hosts reacted in shock, Chiu responded, “Ay bawal ba (Was I supposed to not say that)?”
After a while, she said, “Ay si Bea Alonzo pala (Oh, I meant Bea Alonzo).”
“Wala naman siyang sinabing masama (She did not say anything wrong),” Vice Ganda reasoned.
The “Love Thy Woman” star was in a relationship with Anderson, her longtime love team partner, before they broke up in 2010. After Chiu, Anderson wooed Alonzo in the same year, but their romance was brief.
It would take years before they would reunite as a couple. However, in 2019, Alonzo revealed that the “A Soldier’s Heart” star suddenly stopped talking to her.
Anderson’s “Between Maybes” co-star Julia Barretto was implicated in their split, though Barretto denied her involvement. Rumors still persist, however, that she and Anderson are an item. Niña V. Guno /ra
