Kim Chiu trended on Twitter yesterday after joining It’s Showtime‘s new segment ‘Mas Testing’. During a ‘FUNishment’, the new host was asked to like random photos of her ex-boyfriend Gerald Anderson on Instagram.
“Baka mag-away kami ni Xi!” she exclaimed, while telling her longtime boyfriend Xian Lim on live TV that this was all for fun.
While she was surprised with the task, she admitted that she does not follow Anderson on social media.
“Hindi ko nga pina-follow ‘yun, e! Bakit niyo naman isasali ‘tong taong ‘to? Nananahimik na kami, ah! Isang dekada na ang nakalipas!” she said.
Chiu and Anderson were both housemates in the first season of Pinoy Big Brother Teens and developed a romantic relationship while being onscreen partners. They soon broke up in 2010.
The actress surprised her co-hosts when she candidly mentioned fellow Kapamilya star Julia Barretto, who was romantically linked with Anderson after working on the movie Between Maybes in 2019.
“Tapos pagbukas mo rito, nandito si Julia Barretto!” she said.
After noticing that her co-hosts went speechless, Chiu laughed and told them, ‘Ay, bawal ba? Si Bea Alonzo pala.’
Alonzo is Anderson’s most recent ex-girlfriend.
