“I have nothing to explain to anybody kasi wala naman akong sinaktang tao. I was just having fun.”

At the launch and presscon of Ginebra San Miguel yesterday at the Sequoia Hotel, Ellen Adarna was in full support to her Pasion de Amor co-star, Arci Munoz, as the 2016 Calendar Girl. Ellen was last year’s cover girl.

To make the record straight, Ellen was frank and honest enough to answer the intriguing question hounding the industry for the past days regarding the “quickie issue” between her and Paulo Avelino, which happened at the comfort room of the Makati Shangri-la Hotel during the 9th Star Magic Ball held a few weeks ago.

When asked about her reaction regarding the issue, the sexy star replied, “Wala naman akong kailangan i-explain sa kanila kasi wala naman akong sinaktang tao.  I was just having fun. I don’t have to explain anything.”

Ellen explained that it was just a coincidence that they went out of the ballroom at the same time, and was gone for more than 15 minutes. “Maybe because we were smoking at the smoking area together,” she added. “At natatawa na lang ako sa mga negative write-ups sa amin ni Paulo, especially sa quickie issue na yan. And if ever totoo man na may nangyari, so!…pake ko sa inyo.”

Ellen was also asked if there is a chance for them (Paulo Avelino) to be lovers.  “No,” she quickly replied. “I have a boyfriend and I’m dating someone right now. Si Paulo matagal na kaming magakaibigan. If ginusto naming dalawa, matagal na sana naging kami”.


She was also asked if they (Paulo) have talked about the issue? “Oo, at natatawa na lang kami, na may ganap palang ganyan. Sabi ko nga…baka Smoking is the new Sex,” she laughed.

Meanwhile, Ellen shared the real score between her and Pasion de Amor co-star, Ejay Falcon, who is very open of his affection to her.  “Sinabi ko naman kay Ejay na hindi ako sanay na nililigawan.  Si Ejay is very traditional, like nagpapadala siya ng flowers, nagpapadala sya ng pagkain, hindi ko alam na panliligaw na pala iyon. Hindi ako sanay ng ganyan. So, until eventually sinabi nya na, ‘alam mo ba parang nililigawan kita .’ Sabi ko, ah talaga, okay…okay… nililigawan mo na pala ako.”

Ellen said that she told Ejay that she is actually enjoying their dating stage, although she admitted that she’s still recovering from her past relationship.  And she was honest to say that as of now, she cannot give love in return to the young man. She also denied that she already busted her leading man.  The sexy star stressed that she was nice in telling him to stop courting her.


For now, Ellen and Ejay continues to find the meaning of true love as they play the role of Sarita Elizondo (Ellen), and Ejay (Oscar Samonte) in their hit series,  Pasion de Amor.
