FOR Angelica Panganiban, who turned 30 exactly last November 4, getting into a relationship anew is not her priority.
Well, it has been months since her well-publicized breakup with boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz. Mga three years din daw yatang nag-tagal ang kanilang relasyon.
Reports that they are apt for a reconciliation surfaced recently, when they were spotted together sa isang restaurant.
But as Angelica insists, ano pa man ang mangyari, “ako and John Lloyd will remain friends.”
And that’s what is important to both of them.
More importantly, too, she is happy being single. Loveless.
On comments that she looks pretty and at peace these days, Angelica said: “Well, purpose ko talaga na magpaganda. At higit sa lahat, mag-focus sa aking showbiz career.”
She’s happy with the good feedback her soon-to-be released movie, Star Cinema’s The Unmarried Wife, is getting, based obviously pa lamang sa mga lumalabas na trailer on tv and movie houses, plus the publicities, both print and online.
Angelica is keeping her fingers crossed the film will be a blockbuster.
The Unmarried Wife also stars Dingdong Dantes and Paulo Avelino. Direction is by Maryo de los Reyes.

Of Dingdong Dantes, had his plan to join this year’s Metro Manila Filmfest, well, as a producer, pushed through, he would have filmed a third installment of Aswang Chronicles.
The first two installments did well at the tills.
He is happy, though, that he has a pre-MMFF movie, The Unmarried Wife. He had seen a finished copy and he is more than satisfied.
Pang-third team-up na nila ni Angelica itong The Unmarried Wife kaya at home na sila tuwing humaharap sa camera na magkasama.
The film marks his first time, though, na makatrabaho si Paulo Avelino as co-star. At si Maryo J. de los Reyes as director.

Uso yata ngayon sa ating mga local tv and movie producer na mag-shooting o mag-taping sa ibang bansa.
