Birthday girl Jasmine Curtis-Smith sheds light on the rumor that she and Paulo Avelino are allegedly playing beautiful music together at this point.
“Of course not!” she avers. “Just like what he said in a recent interview, we’re just friends. There’s nothing special going on between us, period!”
It all started when a picture of them dining in a restaurant together circulated of late in the social media.
“Oh, that one you mean? Actually, we were in a group. Paulo and I are currently filming Mara under Regal Entertainment. So we’re friends and fellow workers who casually like to have dinner with a group. That’s it. There should really be no issue at all!”
The pretty Kapatid talent remains unfazed despite flaks coming from bashers, believed to be followers of Paulo and KC Concepcion. The rumor between her and Paulo cropped up at a time when the latter’s alleged love affair with KC was reported to have fizzled out.
“I’m not really affected because that’s the way it is in the ‘biz. When you befriend someone from the opposite sex, it can be given color instantly. I just have to accept that. As long as I know and everyone else what the truth is, what really went down, it’s enough for me. We heard Paulo saying that we’re just friends and co-workers. That’s the truth!”
For the record, no courtship happened between them?
“There’s nothing like that. He didn’t court me. We’re just friends who like to hang-out together,” says Jasmine.
She is celebrating her birthday today.
“Yes! I’m happy to be 21 now. I’m thrilled with the thought that a lot of exciting things await me at this stage.”
Does she have any wish on her special day?
“That would be more and more projects! I started 2015 with a busy work schedule. I hope it remains that way for the rest of the year. I’m simply grateful. I also wish that I’ll be more mature when it comes to my work relationship with fellow actors,” ends Jasmine.
According to Bea Alonzo, she is happy and proud of boyfriend Zanjoe Marudo’s present success because of his hit soap opera titled Dream Dad.
“Oh yes! For one, it’s on prime time…and on the first slot! Everybody knows how stiff the ratings competition is for that block, and yet the show is doing very well. It’s really something that you should be proud of.
“In fact, I’m so glad when outside, he is being called Mr. President. It means, he was able to endear his character to the viewers. I’m simply happy for him,” she says.
In one of his interviews, Zanjoe said that like his role in the soap, he is already prepared to become a father in real life.
“Well…good for him! Ha-ha-ha! It just shows that he is the serious type. He takes our relationship seriously. I’m happy about that. But for sure, he also said not anytime soon!”
When it comes to her own television exposure, many notice that after her soap Sana Bukas Pa ang Kahapon, she’s not that visible anymore.
“It’s because I’m doing the movie Crossroads with Mr. Richard Gomez and Ms. Dawn Zulueta. After shooting this project, I might get back to the soap opera scene,” Bea states.
