MANILA – Piolo Pascual and Shaina Magdayao were spotted leaving the Fairmont Hotel in Makati together after the 7th Star Magic Ball last Saturday.
The two arrived separately at the red-carpet event, with Pascual saying he can’t walk beside Magdayao because of the long trail of the actress’ gown.
The two even said they would be with their group of friends.
“Marami akong date, isang buong grupo ng mga kaibigan ko. All of my friends are here. Finally magkakasama na kaming lahat na magkakatrabaho,” Magdayao said.
As for Pascual, he said: “Date ko sila lahat. I’m there naman to be with everyone. Shy and I are going to be there. We are going to be together along with a lot of other friends.”
But as the night progressed, Pascual and Magdayao were seen together several times and even left the venue together.
Pascual and Magdayao have been consistent in saying that there is nothing romantic going on between them. Earlier this year, Pascual said they are just enjoying each other’s company.
“My friendship with Shaina is okay. We're able to know each other better and at the same time, siguro we just have the same interests. Marami naman siguro nakakakita sa Intagram ng mga pinaggagagawa namin,” he said.
Pascual, however, said he does not want to say anything more about their closeness.
“There's a thin line sa being showbiz and wanting it personal kasi whatever you say, it may appear as a showbiz answer or what have you. Gusto ko sana walang sabihin, I don't want to comment. I don't want to say anything about it pero dumadating tayo sa point na nakukuwestiyon ka. As much as you want to be sincere, iba pa rin ang dating sa tao eh,” he said.
Pascual believes that the more he talks about it, the more people would speculate.
Asked about their real status now, Pascual said: “What I can safely say about our relationship is we are friends, we are very good friends. We've been hanging out a lot lately so nandoon siya sa point na iyon.”
In a separate interview, Magdayao said she is happy that Pascual appreciates her but stressed that she is enjoying the single life.
Magdayao plays Pascual's wife in the crime drama "On The Job," which is now on its second week in theaters.
