Friendship breakups can be as heartbreaking as romantic splits.
No wonder Loisa Andalio turned emotional in explaining why she and fellow Star Magic artist Maris Racal are no longer “best friends.”
The two used to be very close, more particularly when they were inside the “Pinoy Big Brother” house. But, they reportedly drifted apart due to lack of time for meet-ups outside work.
The “breakup” turned even more sour when Maris admitted in a past interview that they had a “misunderstanding,” which Loisa eventually denied.
In a small talk with Loisa recently, the young actress said she is moving from the issue. She clarified that her alleged rift with Maris is petty, just blown out of proportion by the fans.
“From the start, I chose to keep quiet about the issue. I always tell myself, ‘Oh, that’s okay. I’m not affected,’’’ she said in Filipino at the Opening Night of this year’s Cinema One Originals Film Festival. “But as time passed by, I realized I’ve put a wall around myself, that I kept the pain inside of me. I’m happy I now have the chance to air my side.”
Loisa said Maris remains her friends though they are not as close as before. “Very casual,” was how she described it.
“Me and Maris have no problem. We’re okay. Though there are some changes, but we’re good. We talk and we respect each other,” she noted.
These days, the two have seemingly found new best friends; Maris with Sue Ramirez, and Loisa with Julia Barretto.
Loisa dismissed rumors Sue caused the rift between her and Maris. Note that Sue and Loisa also got embroiled in an issue when the former was linked to the latter’s boyfriend, Ronnie Alonte.
“It’s all in the past,” said Loisa. “I mean, me and Sue are okay. It’s just that we have different ‘trips’ in life but I respect her friendship with Maris.”
As for Julia, the two caught the attention of “warring” fans when they go out together, proving them they can get along amid “troublesome” tweet.
“I can admit that Julia and I were awkward with each other at first because the fans kept comparing us. But now, we click. She’s fun to be with,” she related.
Asked if she is willing to do a film with Sue, Maris, and Julia, the young star quipped, “Why not? It’s work. I can earn money from that!”
Happy love life
Loisa and Ronnie have got fans swooning over sweet photos the two posted online.
At 19, she revealed seeing a future with him.
“I just want to be honest. I mean, if you’re in love, it’s a normal thing that you wish he’s the one. I want us to have a future, let’s hope and work on that,” she smiled.
To bashers that continue to harp on their relationship, Loisa has this to say.
“Truth is, I pity them. Because it seems they don’t know anything else to do apart from bashing. They are just wasting their time on me.”
Blessings continue to pour on Loisa.
The young actress has been receiving positive feedback over the trailer of her first-ever lead role film “Hospicio” launched a few days ago.
In it, she plays Leslie, a young woman confined in a rehabilitation center. She later stumbles onto the unsolved problems happening inside the hospital.
“Hospicio” is a horror-thriller film directed by Bobby Bonifacio. It is one of the nine official finalists of the Cinema One Originals Film Festival 2018. It will be shown in select cinemas in Metro Manila from Oct. 12 to 21.
Loisa is also set to appear with Vice Ganda (her second time after “The Revenger Squad” last year), Dingdong Dantes, Richard Gutierrez, Kisses Delavin, Bela Padilla, Donny Pangilinan, and Ronnie Alonte in “Fantastica, The Princesses, The Prince, The Perya,” an official entry to this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.
With these projects, Loisa happily revealed a new house for her family is now under construction.
“I feel so blessed because never did I imagine that at age 19, I can afford to build a house for my family. I want to thank the Lord for all the blessings. I’m grateful that all my hard work is paying off,” she said. (All photos from Instagram)
