Carla Abellana on her love life: ‘We owe it to the Public’
Carla Abellana and Geoff Eigenmann have been at the centre of controversy for the past few days since Carla admitted they were having a problem in their relationship.
This spat is said to come from Geoff’s alleged wooing of Kylie Padilla on the set of ‘Adarna’ and the resulting misunderstanding between Geoff and Kylie’s boyfriend, ‘Ultimate Hunk’ Aljur Abrenica.
The star of last year’s hit soap ‘My Husband’s Lover’ said she was certainly affected by the unfaithfulness rumours surrounding Geoff. But she said she trusts Geoff, because ‘open and honest [kami] sa isa’t isa.’
According to the actress, this openness is also extended to the public, a feat that not all of stars share in the world of showbiz where rumours and tsismis abound. Carla believes that as a public figure, the status of her love life, whether good or bad, is a public concern.
‘As much as you want to keep it private between the two of you, hindi maiiwasan na marami ang magtatanong kasi maraming concerned.’
She said in an interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal that she doesn’t mind sharing her love life to the public. In fact, she said she has never answered ‘no comment’ or ‘secret’ to questions about her relationship status. She said this is because the public deserves to know the truth: ‘Open naman ako hangga’t alam ko ang totoo o hangga’t kaya ko siyang i-share, isi-share ko naman yun.
‘We owe it to the public, witness naman din sila.’
Carla admitted that being open to the public is very hard, as this puts added pressure on her relationship with her boyfriend: ‘All eyes are on you, may mga expectations talaga.’
Nevertheless, she is willing to accept this difficulty as part of her career. This makes Carla one of the few stars whom concerned fans can trust for the truth. While the issue between her and Geoff unfolds, fans can always rely on Carla for the real score.
