MANILA – Former love team partners Piolo Pascual and Judy Ann Santos were unable to escape some good-natured ribbing from no less than ABS-CBN’s chief content officer Charo Santos Concio.
The three, along with Matteo Guidicelli, graced an event on Wednesday for their insurance endorsement.
While all of them were on stage, Pascual and Santos, who were standing next to each other, kept stuttering while delivering their spiels, prompting Concio to say: “Iyan na nga ba ang sinasabi ko eh!”
Concio then talked about their experience working together in the ABS-CBN series “Esperanza” two decades ago.
Admitting she’s a fan of the two, Concio said: “Marami naman pong fans dito ng Juday-Piolo love team. Ipagdasal natin na sana sa mga darating na taon ay [magtrabaho ulit silang dalawa].”
Pascual then turned to Santos to ask if she is open to work with him again. To which, the actress replied: “Kaya mo ba?”
Their short exchange elicited loud cheers from the audience.
In an interview after the event, Pascual said he is more than willing to share the screen with Santos again, saying she played a vital role in his career.
“Na kay Juday na iyan. Ako naman naghihintay lang. Ako talaga hindi ko naman ikakaila, talagang ang laki ng tulong sa akin ni Juday. So ako, anytime she’s ready,” he said.
Santos, on the other hand, shared that she and Pascual constantly get offers to work together again. However, their reunion project has yet to push through because of various reasons.
“Just for the record, every year may [offer to do a project with Piolo]. Walang stories na napi-pitch kasi hindi pa naman natutuloy but every year there’s a question, there’s an offer. It’s just that there’s a different situation na nagsu-surface like nabubuntis ako, mayroon siyang ginagawa. And iyon nga, wala pang proper na usapan about it. Parating pahaging lang,” she said.
Santos said she refuses to be excited about it because she does not want to feel frustrated if the project fails to materialize.
“Ayaw ko masydong ma-excite kasi kapag na-excite ako, nafru-frustrate ako kapag hindi natutuloy. Alam niyo naman ako, si live by the day lang. Kung ano ang nandyan, doon tayo mag-chikahan. Kung wala, wala muna,” she said.
While they haven’t worked together in a long time, Santos said she and Pascual have remained good friends.
“Nayon lang naman nakita ng mga tao na nagkita kami ni Piolo. Pero kapag nagkakasalubong kami, okay naman kami. Siguro kasi nga ang daming naghihintay. Ang daming nag-aabang. Ang daming nag-e-expect ng comeback. But we’ve always been friends. Kagaya ng sinabi ko kanina, ‘yung kilig naman sa Juday-Piolo, hindi naman nawala. Nandiyan talaga siya,” she said.
Ending her interview in jest, Santos said she will probably work with Pascual only when she has already caught up with his waistline and sex appeal.
