In talking about her relationship with Gerald Anderson, Bea Alonzo wasted no time addressing what she termed as "the elephant in the room" — the fact that they recently went through a rough patch.
The "Kasal" star opened up about the topic in an interview on "Tonight with Boy Abunda" that aired Monday, admitting to host Boy Abunda that she and Anderson are fixing their relationship.
This, after Alonzo told ABS-CBN News last week that she was "technically single."
"Marami pang inaayos," she said, noting that mending their relationship is a choice.
She explained: "The moment you choose to fall in love, you choose to experience pain, and I think it all boils down to who you want to experience all of that for. . . Doon nag-go-grow 'yung relationship. Doon nag-go-grow ang love."
"Ang love naman hindi lang puro saya, eh. Pag mas marami nga kayong pinagdaanan, mas strong 'yung relationship. Kailangan, paminsan-minsan, mayroon kayong pagdadaanan, at may matututunan kayo out of all of those things," she added.
Short-lived sweethearts until they parted ways in 2010, Alonzo and Anderson re-connected romantically in 2016 when they were paired in the big-screen romcom "How to Be Yours."
Since then, they had been rumored to be a couple, until early this year, when Alonzo sparked rumors of a breakup after she un-followed both Anderson and his "My Perfect You" leading lady Pia Wurtzbach on Instagram.
Alonzo and Anderson, however, patched things up eventually, with the 29-year-old actor saying the temporary rift was caused by a misunderstanding. He also cleared Wurtzbach's name amid rumors she had a part in the quarrel.
