Shaina Magdayao and John Lloyd Cruz's interview with Boy Abunda was aired on The Buzz yesterday. The two have been in the news as of late due to rumors that they've already separated, plus that text message issue between Shaina and John Lloyd's ex-girlfriend, Ruffa Gutierrez.
But before the text incident happened, it can be recalled that there was another cellphone incident earlier this year where Shaina allegedly called Ruffa in the wee hours of the night regarding John Lloyd. The young actress admitted the incident saying she called Ruffa because "... gusto kong paratingin sa kanya na kaya ako tumatawag sa 'yo kasi nabasa ko 'yong text mo [to John Lloyd] so sana 'wag ka nang mag-text ulit."
After that incident, Ruffa allegedly said she was going to stay away and not bother Shaina and John Lloyd anymore. But "it was so clear na hindi sya tumutupad sa sarili n'yang salita," Shaina told Boy, referring to the recent text Ruffa sent John Lloyd after Vina's after-birthday concert party.
At that second cellphone incident, Shaina didn't deny as well that she texted Ruffa back using John Lloyd's cellphone. "I told her to leave us alone gaya ng gusto kong sabihin sa kanya the first time that I called her. This time I want to be straight-forward na."
On the question of the state of their relationship, John Lloyd said they're on the point of acknowledging that they are going through a tough time and they both know what they need to do. He clarified, though, that Ruffa wasn't the cause of what their relationship is going through. "Wala sa kalingkingan ng kahit na sinong babae ang totoong dahilan ng pinagdadaanan namin ngayon. Hindi 'yong perception ng tao ang dahilan... Ako ang magsasabi kung sino o ano 'yong totoong dahilan – mga sarili namin. Masyadong malalim, masyadong personal."
Although they agreed that they both have personal issues, John Lloyd admitted that he is the one with more things that need to resolve within himself.
Shaina was the only one scheduled for interview that day, but John Lloyd offered to be interviewed as well because he doesn't like how things are going anymore. "... Kasi nababastusan na ako, e. Nao-offend na ako. Nababastusan na ako do'n sa mga nakikisali, sa mga nakikisawsaw sa pinagdadaanan namin. 'Yon pong pinagdadaanan namin bilang magkarelasyon... parang hindi ko kayang hayaan na tapak-tapakan, bastusin... Gusto kong protektahan whatever is left of this relationship... We may be having problems now pero hindi ibig sabihin e tatahimik na lang kami at hahayaan kong bastusin n'yo kung ano 'yong natitira sa relasyon namin... Hindi ko na kayang maupo lang tapos hayaan sila pagpyestahan at i-direct 'yong utak ng karamihan ng mga manonood sa isang bagay na hindi naman totoo, sa isang bagay na wala namang halaga sa amin."
The interview ended with Boy asking, "Parating sinasabi ng mga tao, for as long as there is love, dapat ilaban, is that where you are." To which John Lloyd answered, "'Yong ano muna, sarili. Kung hindi mo mahal 'yong sarili mo, parang mahirap magmahal."
