Bea recalls 'whirlwind romance' with Gerald

Actress recalls 'death threats,' public disapproval
MANILA, Philippines -- Bea Alonzo recalled her short-lived romance with Gerald Anderson as a "roller-coaster ride," having experienced extreme emotions as they tackled together public criticism and the disapproval of someone closer to home.
"Whirlwind. Whirlwind ba tawag doon? Hindi? Fling? Ano? Summer romance. One season lang, e. Summer romance! It was fun. It was fun, parang 'yong ano, roller-coaster ride," she said.
The 25-year-old actress, who is now in a long-term relationship with actor Zanjoe Marudo, related to YES! magazine in its July 2013 issue how the "open secret" that was her relationship with Anderson started back in 2010.
According to Alonzo, Anderson had just broken up with Kim Chiu, his fellow "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate and erstwhile "love team," when the actor expressed his intentions to court her.
"'Yong nanligaw siya, sabi ko, 'Let's not talk for three months. Make sure, okay?' Kasi kaka-break niya lang talaga literally, kaka-break niya lang with Kim. Tapos sabi ko, 'After three months, titingnan ko, ha, kung gusto mo pa rin ako. Kasi ayokong maging rebound,'" she said.
Despite her request, Alonzo, who was 23 at the time, said Anderson had been persistent in showing his admiration for her. But the actress said she wouldn't have it, recalling that she reminded her suitor, who was 21 at the time, of their agreement.
"Kasi at that time ayoko talaga. Iniisip ko magkatrabaho pa sila noon eh. Parang they were doing a soap together, sila ni Kim," Alonzo said, referring to the Kapamilya series "Kung Tayo'y Magkakalayo," which ran from January to July 2010.
She added: "Baka mamaya ako 'yong talo, 'di ba? Baka mamaya mukha akong... 'yun pala, nagkabalikan sila doon or something. Pareho pa kami ng management, 'di ba?"
Alonzo, Anderson and Chiu are all artists of ABS-CBN's talent management firm, Star Magic.
"So sabi ko sa kanya," Alonzo continued, "'After three months, same date, kung serious ka, 'di text me or call me.' Ganyan. In fairness, naman, 12 midnight sakto, nag-text siya nang mahabang-mahaba."
The text message would mark the start of the pair's courtship stage, which Alonzo recalls to have been full of "pasabog" and "galante" gestures from her suitor.
"Si Ge (the actor's nickname), ay grabe. Papa-cater niya talaga 'yong house ko, ganyan, just because meron lang siyang hindi nagawa na promise niya. 'Yong ganon.
"Para ngang roller-coaster 'yon. As in, sobra akong depressed, tapos maya-maya lang, talagang pak! Na sa cloud nine na naman ako kasi sobra siyang magaling magpakilig, tapos bababa na naman ako," she said.
Among the reasons for Alonzo's "depression" then were the apparent disapproval of Anderson's mom of their relationship, as well as the mounting criticism from the avid supporters of "Kimerald," the actor's well-loved tandem with Chiu.
"As far as I was concerned, I wasn't doing anything wrong. Hindi ko siya (Anderson) inagaw. In fact, I gave it three months bago naging kami," Alonzo said.
"May respeto kasi ako kay Kim. At alam ni Kim 'yon. Tapos never akong nagpa-interview. I could have defended myself. Tapos may death threats pa ako... Ang hirap, sobrang hirap. Para kang kontrabida. And it's all public perception.
"And all of that, feeling ko, kaya ko. Hindi ko lang kaya 'yong pati 'yung family niya ayaw sa akin, tapos magpapa-interview. And I felt na disente naman ako," she said.
Alonzo was referring to the mother of Anderson, who she said had expressed her disapproval of the relationship during a media interview.
The actress clarified, however, that she bore no ill feelings toward her boyfriend's mom, but admitted she was angry that Anderson could not seem to defend their relationship to his family.
"Nagalit ako kay Ge noon. Kasi naisip ko 'yung nanay ko, may anak ding lalaki 'yan. Si mama, meron siyang girlfriends ng kapatid ko na ayaw niya din. But she wouldn't say na ayaw niya kasi alam niyang masasaktan nga si James, 'yong kapatid ko, at hindi 'yong girl.
"So parang sabi ko kay Ge, 'Ba't ganoon, baka hindi naman alam ng mom mo? Baka hindi niya nakikita kung gaano mo ko kamahal? Or baka hindi mo talaga ako ganoon...' 'Di ba, 'yung gano'n?" Alonzo said.
Asked what she recalls to be the reason of Anderson's mom for being against their relationship, Alonzo told YES!, "Sabi niya, parang ginagamit ko daw. Sabi ko, 'Teka lang, ha. Narating ko naman 'yong narating ko, dati na.' Actually nasisira nga dahil jinowa ko siya."
"So I mean nanay siya. Tapos ang feeling ko it wasn't fair, kasi never ko pa siyang nakilala. 'Di ba, parang ang sakit no'n? Kahit na nasisira 'yung pangalan ko, okay lang, basta 'yung pangalan niya, hindi masira, 'yong gano'n. Sobrang unfair. Kaya sabi ko, hindi ko na kaya," she said.
It was in November 2010, before they both went to London for an ABS-CBN concert tour, when the two decided to part ways as a couple.
"Parang there was an agreement between us na we were going to act as a couple in London. But after, wala nang talk... [Ginawa namin 'yon] para masaya 'yong last moment namin together. Kasi hindi pa pwede talaga. You and me against the world ang drama. Hindi ko kaya. Hindi ko kaya talaga," she said.
Looking back, Alonzo mused that their relationship may have had a negative impact on their careers. "Sobrang ikli lang naman nong sa amin ni Ge. Hindi naman 'yon malalim, pero lesson learned sa akin... Kaya din kami naghiwalay, hindi ko din naman kakayanin siguro na makita siyang nawawalan ng career nang dahil sa akin," she said.
Now happily in relationships of their own, with Anderson and actress Maja Salvador recently confirming their being a couple amid criticisms, Alonzo said her "summer romance" with the actor may have taught him a thing or two about standing by certain decisions.
"Baka noong time na 'yon hindi niya pa yata kayang panindigan. At least ngayon, napapanindigan niya na. Baka transition ako. Baka ako 'yong kinailangan niyang maranasan bago siya manindigan," she said.

Sa isang linggong selebrasyon ng kaarawan ni Kris Aquino sa Kris TV, isa sa mga dinalaw nito sa General Santos City ay ang ina ni Gerald Anderson, si Mommy Vangie. Ipinakita ni Mommy Vangie ang bahay nila sa GenSan na pina-renovate ni Gerald.
Habang nililibot ang bahay, may ilang mga gamit na sinabing galing sa dating ka-partner ni Gerald na si Kim Chiu. Ilan dito ay ang salamin na nakasabit sa kanilang salas, golf cart na binigay ni Kim kay Gerald noong nagdiwang siya ng kanyang 21st birthday, at isang signature bag. Kwento ni Mommy Vangie binigay ito ni Kim sa kanya sa kanyang 50th birthday. Kaya naman hindi na rin napigilan ni co-host Melai Canitveros sabihing, “Alam mo love na love ni mommy si Kim. Sobrang love na love ni mommy.”
Sa pagpasok nila sa kwarto ni Mommy Vangie, naibahagi din nito na ang kanyang kama na bigay ng mga Kimerald fans ay kinuha niya pa mula kay Gerald sa bahay nito sa Maynila. May isang Kimerald mug din na naka-display na binigay din sa kanya ng mga Kimerald fans. Ang eksplanasyon ni Gerald dito tungkol sa kanyang ina, “Yung mom ko kasi she’s very sentimental at mahalaga sa kanya ang mga bagay-bagay. She would really keep it for a very long time.”
Kaya naman sa tanong ni Kris kay Mommy Vangie kung namimiss nito si Kim, inamin niyang nagtetext siya sa dalaga. “Well, siguro may nagbawal, na hindi na siya mag-reply. Siguro lang hindi ko alam.” Napansin din sa kanilang bahay na may framed picture kung saan magkasama sina Kim at Gerald. Isa din sa mga naitanong ni Kris kay Mommy Vangie ay kung nakilala na niya ang kasalukuyang nali-link kay Gerald na si Maja Salvador at inamin niyang nakita niya na ito isang beses dalawang buwan na nang nakakaraan. “Yes, I saw her sa Faces and Curves pero wala pa akong alam doon.”
Isa sa mga naging pinakamainit na balita sa show business ang naudlot na pag-iibigan nina Sarah Geronimo at Gerald Anderson, kaya naman sa pagkakataong ito, naitanong na rin kay Mommy Vangie kung nakilala niya na si Sarah. “Twice, nung first movie nila tapos premiere. Doon ko lang siya nakilala sa shooting nila, twice.”
Ibinahagi din ng ina na hindi siya nakikialam sa kung anuman ang nangyayari sa personal na buhay ni Gerald. “Minsan naman especially like last week may narinig naman ako. Of course, I have to call my son kahit ilagay lang natin na palabas lang iyan. Pero I want to be sure with my son na okay siya kahit sa lumalabas na isyu.” At ang ayaw lang naman niya ay masaktan muli ang anak. “I don’t want to happen again yung nangyari sa kanila ni Kim. Noong una ang gulo, ayaw ko namang maranasan yun ulit ni Gerald.”
