How Come Showbiz Romances Seldom Last? Here's The Latest On Showbiz Breakups And Reconciliations

EVERYONE predicted that the relationship of Janine Gutierrez and Elmo Magalona will end up in separation after Elmo transferred to ABS-CBN. And this prophecy finally happened a couple of weeks ago. It’s good that they are said to be still in good terms and parted ways in an amicable manner.

“They hardly see each other na kasi,” says our source. “Unlike noong nasa GMA pa sila when they were paired in several shows at lagi silang nagkikita. Obviously, it’s not true that absence makes the heart grown fonder. And it’s not true that Janella Salvador is the cause of the breakup. Hindi nga kinagat ang show nilang ‘Born for You’ ni Elmo. Mas excited pa ang fans sa balik-tambalan nina Janella ang Marlo Mortel in Regal’s ‘Mano Po 7: Chinoy’ sa Pasko.”

Jake Cuenca also reported during the presscon of “Mulat” that he has broken up for good with model GF Sarah Grace Kelly. They’ve already parted ways before but got together again. “It’s not true that love is sweeter the second time around,” says Jake. “Long distance relationship simply doesn’t work since she’s in the U.S. and I’m here.”

The third couple to call it quits is Denise Laurel and Ginebra cager BF Sol Mercado. Denise was the one who broke off their engagement. Everyone is shocked since Denise painted the guy as an ideal mate who has even totally accepted her love son from a past relationship that also didn’t work.

Denise wrote this on her social media account after someone tagged her about the championship of Sol’s Ginebra team: “From now on Sol and I are just friends. I am very happy for him! But please don’t tag me on anything that has to do with him. We both tried our best. Please respect Sol. He did not cheat on me. He didn’t do anything wrong. He’s amazing and brought so much into my life. God has something planned for us both.”

But if there’s separation (hiwalayan), there’s also reconciliation (nagkabalikan). This is Zsa Zsa Padilla and Arch. Conrad Onglao, who’s also about to get married when Zsa Zsa broke up with Conrad, who then made a vow that he won’t stop until he has succeeded in winning her back. Obviously, he was successful in convincing Zsa Zsa to give him a second chance and hopefully, their wedding will finally happen this time. But close friends of Zsa Zsa feel nervous for her: “We thought nauntog na siya. But obviously, hindi siya nadala.” Other friends, though, believe the contrary: “Don’t be nega about it. Let’s just be happy for Zsa Zsa.”
