Prior to reconnecting and forming a close bond, “Unbreakable” co-stars Angelica Panganiban and Bea Alonzo admittedly had a phase of avoiding each other and having awkward moments.
Both talents of ABS-CBN’s Star Magic, the two have known each other since their teenage years, and became onscreen sisters in the 2007 series “Maging Sino Ka Man.”
While they were friends at the time, they recalled growing apart to the point of no longer being on speaking terms. But, in an interview aired Monday on “Tonight with Boy Abunda,” they clarified they never had any confrontation nor conflict.
Now closer than ever, Panganiban and Alonzo can now share a laugh over their past odd encounters. One such instance was when Panganiban couldn’t help but react to seeing Alonzo having an interaction with their fellow Kapamilya star Jericho Rosales, whom the latter considers her showbiz “crush.”
They narrated that during a party for Star Magic founder Johnny Manahan, Rosales approached his fellow talents to come up with a surprise, impromptu song number for the celebrant.
Bringing up the idea with Alonzo, Rosales leaned close apparently to keep the plan discreet. Alonzo, however, mistook the movement as Rosales’ gesture for a “beso,” or a kiss on the cheek, before saying goodbye.
“Yumuko siyang gano’n kay Bea! Kiniss niya si Echo!” Panganiban said, laughing. “Eh, nakita ko! Ako talaga, sabi ko, ‘Hala!’”
Acting out Panganiban’s reaction, Alonzo pointed her finger, saying: “‘Ang landi-landi mo, Bea!’ Oh my God, sobrang pula ko talaga!”
