Heart Evangelista and Chiz Escudero opened up about the difficulty they recently experienced in their marriage and shared the biggest lessons they got from it.

On “Fast Talk with Boy Abunda” Thursday, March 14, the celebrity couple looked back on the rough patch that tested their relationship and which was rumored to be the reason for their “brief separation” at the time. 


Evangelista said she learned how important it is for a partner to “stay strong” while the other person deals with personal struggles, which her husband did for her. 


“If one is going through a really tough time, the other one really has to be strong because I don’t think we would be sitting here today if he wasn’t strong. Like seriously he was like I’ve never met anyone, not even a friend, like everybody failed me during that time,” she remarked.

“But he believed in my heart and it’s because of his belief and like the Heart that he knows, he knew that I was going to come back. If he didn’t, it would have been down,” added the actress. 

Escudero underscored that it was hard for him to be strong for both of them amid the marriage troubles, but the “Lord made it easier.” 

“God made it easier for me, so lesson learned there is to be still and know there is a God. Be still until you surrender,” he said. 

The Filipina fashion icon explained that at the time it seemed like the “problem was bigger than their love,” as she stressed that she was “out of character” while handling the situation at hand.

“I was very confused and it also didn’t help that I was with the wrong set of people, so I was basically out of character. You know I wasn’t a teenager for me to say, ‘Oh I was young I didn’t know what I was doing. I didn’t know what was wrong or right,’” she said. 


The Kapuso actress remarked that when they were experiencing the marriage fallout, she was also experiencing the “darkest moment” in her life, which made things blurry for her at the time.

“It’s for me my darkest time because I knew what I was doing but I just don’t know why I’m here, like I feel like I was possessed and taken somewhere else and I was full of anger,” she opened up.
