IS IT TRUE Pop Rock Princess Yeng Constantino is now going steady with Tutti Caringal of 6Cyclemind? “No, we’re just friends,” she says. “Open na kong magpaligaw ngayon, according to my dad, pero wala pang naga-apply.” Some folks say she’s a tomboy. “That’s not true. Boyish lang ako kasi sa banda, puro lalaki kasama ko, pero sa lalaki pa rin ako nagkakagusto, hindi sa babae.”

Yeng is paired with Vhong Navarro as the first local celebrity endorsers of popular clothing brand RRJ or Rough Rider Jeans. Comedy Prince Vhong is one of the busiest stars on TV, seen daily hosting “Showtime” at noon and in “Kokey@Ako” at night. Pinoy Dream Academy winner Yeng is in ASAP XV and “Music Uplate Live”, and has three albums to her name with numerous hits like “Hawak Kamay”, “Lapit” and “Jeepney Love Story”.

RRJ exec Dante Castillo says they have 200 boutique stores nationwide, more than any other brand. He adds that Vhong and Yeng are their first choices. “Yeng is a pretty, gifted singer-songwriter while Vhong is so versatile as he acts, sings, hosts, dances. We got them as their fan base are the markets we want to reach. They excel in their field because of their talent at ganun din ang RRJ.”
How did Yeng and Vhong feel when RRJ got them? “I’m overwhelmed, sobrang saya sa tiwala nila sa’kin. I was so excited sa pictorial na ginawa namin. I can identify with RRJ as wer’re both edgy, young and adventurous in our styles,” says Yeng.

“Big honor for me na makuhang first male celebrity endorser nila considering na maraming mas guwapo and talented diyan, but they chose me. I’m proud to wear their clothes kasi pareho kaming wholesome and versatile, puede kahit saang okasyon.”
