SAM PINTO IS in the hot seat right now after being tagged as the supposed third party in the break-ups of Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson and former PBB housemate Paul Jake Castillo and his non-showbiz girlfriend Denise Jalandoni.
Inarguably, Sam is one of the most beautiful faces in today’s batch of new stars. But it seems like having a beautiful face is both a curse and a blessing to her – depends on how she experiences it. She can be a poster girl with her good looks and svelte figure pero naaakusahan naman siyang third party ngayon sa mga break-ups.
Ikinakabit sa napapabalitang hiwalayan nina Gerald at Kim si Sam who is supposedly Gerald’s apple of the eye right now. They had worked together in Your Song Presents: Isla. Nagsalita na sina Gerald at Kim tungkol sa isyu ng hiwalayan. Balita kasing madalas daw nakikitang lumalabas sina Gerald at Sam. “Kahit sinong iharap mo sa akin, kung may nakakitang lumabas kami, iharap mo sa akin,” he challenged. Sinabi naman ni Kim na wala raw kinalaman si Sam sa kanilang dalawa ni Gerald.
Tinuldukan na nina Paul Jake at Denise ang kanilang tatlong taong pagsasama. Sam came into the picture because he reportedly introduced Sam to his family in Cebu. Paul Jake explained, “She was there for a short time lang. I took her out sa club ng friend ko. It so happened that my family was there rin because kasama ko naman palagi ang family ko sa mga clubs at restaurants.”
I asked Sam during her live interview on The Buzz if it hurts kapag binabansagan siyang third party. “Yes, parang ang sama-sama kong tao. With these relationships I really have nothing to do with them,” she said.
Diretsahan ko siyang tinanong kung nagkaroon ba sila ng relasyon ni Gerald. “Iyong relationship po namin work lang. In Isla. It was non-romantic.” Niligawan ba siya nito? “No, not at all,” she answered.
Sinabi ni Sam na wala raw silang relasyon ni Paul Jake at hindi siya nililigawan nito. She went to Cebu because of work. Kung liligawan man daw siya ngayon ni Paul Jake ay wala raw itong pag-asa because she’s busy with her career.
Ngayong nasa industriya na si Sam, dapat siyang maging handa sa mga pagsalag sa mga intrigang ibabato sa kanya kaliwa’t kanan. When she entered showbiz, she relinquished her right to privacy. The moment she became public, everything about her became public. This is the price that she has to pay. Is it all worth it? “I’m accepting it now. It’s really a part of showbiz,” she said.
May pakiusap siya sa mga taong nang-iintriga sa kanya. “Lalo na po roon sa third party, tama na po kasi masakit na, eh. I really have nothing to do with these relationships. Lalo na iyong kay Gerald and Kim, why would I break up iyong tandem na iyon? They’re really strong. Ang dami nilang fans. Everyone loves them. Bakit pa ako sisingit doon, d’i ba? About Paul Jake and Denise: it’s their problem. I don’t want to have anything to do with it.”
Kaibigan, usap tayo muli!
