For the first time, actress Julia Barretto shared details of her dinner with fellow actress Loisa Andalio.

On Sunday's episode of "Gandang Gabi Vice," Barretto and onscreen partner Joshua Garcia were tasked to ask questions for people whose pictures will be shown on screen.

One of the pictures shown was that of Loisa Andalio.

Upon seeing the picture, Barretto was quick to say that she and Andalio are now friends, and shared details of their dinner together.

According to Barretto, it was Andalio who first sent her a message, asking to meet her over dinner.

"You know, sometimes pala ang maka-connect ng bond between two ladies or two people is when you feel like you can relate with each other," she said.

Garcia, for his part, admitted he was surprised when he learned Barreto and Andalio were meeting.

"Tinanong ko siya kung saan siya pupunta, dinner daw. Tapos tinanong ko kung kanino, sabi siya with Loisa. So ako mismo, nagulat ako pero siyempre nagpatay malisya na lang ako," he said.

Andalio was Garcia's fellow "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate in 2014 and for a time, they were even billed as a tandem dubbed "Loishua." She has maintained in recent interviews that while they remain on good terms, they no longer have a close relationship. 

Interestingly, Andalio is now paired onscreen and is rumored to be in a relationship with Ronnie Alonte, who was Barretto's leading man in the primetime series "A Love to Last" and the romance-drama film "Vince and Kath and James," which also featured Garcia.
