Ai Ai explains 'Brazilian guy' in viral selfie

MANILA -- Ai Ai delas Alas couldn't contain her laughter when asked about a certain "Brazilian guy" seen with her in a "selfie" making the rounds online. The 48-year-old actress addressed the matter shortly after a bloggers conference held Thursday afternoon for her upcoming action-comedy film "Kung Fu Divas," which will hit theaters nationwide on October 2. "Ano ba 'yang Brazilian na 'yan! Nakakatawa! Unang-una, hindi siya Brazilian. Ano siya, Mexican-Hawaiian, and friend ko 'yon. Kaibigan ko 'yon, and boss 'yon," delas Alas said, laughing. The "Tanging Ina" star explained that the photo was taken during a thanksgiving celebration held last Sunday, which she personally organized as a devotee of the Blessed Virgin Mary. "Kasi meron akong isang bagong ini-endorse, and siya 'yung manager for international expansion. So ano 'yon, he's a corporate friend," delas Alas said. Asked why they appeared to be close in the "selfie," considering their supposed professional ties, the actress said, laughing, "Wait, oo nga, bakit nga ba kami nag-selfie no'n? Ngayon ko lang din na-realize, ba't ba kami gumagano'n?" Turning serious, she continued, "Hindi, kasi nung mga panahon na 'yon, lahat ng mga boss ng ini-endorse ko, in-invite ko, and siguro dahil maraming ginagawa 'yung iba, siya lang 'yung isa sa mga nakapunta. So thankful naman ako na nando'n siya." As to whether there is any chance they will form a closer relationship, delas Alas said, "Friend lang talaga. I'm not ready." The prized Kapamilya star was embroiled in a controversy early this year for her marital woes with businessman Jed Salang, whom she married in a civil wedding on April 3. They separated a month later, with delas Alas accusing Salang of domestic violence, which has since been taken to court. When asked as to the progress of her legal tiff with her former partner, delas Alas only said, "In fairness, okay na siya."
