LOVI POE was in Los Angeles when she had a zoom presscon as endorser of Imono Jewelry. Someone asked her if it’s true she had a secret marriage with her British boyfriend who is based there, Montgomery Blencowe.  

The rumor is that they have already exchanged wedding vows in a secret ceremony with only a few friends and family members invited.

“Actually, ni hindi pa namin napag-uusapan ang wedding,” she replies, laughing. 

“He has not even proposed and honestly, it has never crossed my mind. Kaya doon sa tanong na will we choose an Imono wedding ring sa kasal namin, bago wedding ring, siguro dapat, engagement ring muna kasi we’re not even engaged yet.”

She says she’s still too engrossed with work to think of settling down. 

“I have an ongoing series on GMA-7, ‘Owe My Love’, and I’m also supposed to shoot a new movie. Here in the U.S., I am now recording a new song. My last song was ‘Under’, released last February, so I’m really busy.”

And of course, there’s the rumor that she’s leaving GMA to move to ABS-CBN. So what’s the truth about it? 

“I guess it’s only fair to keep things private at this stage as negotiations are still going on and it’s all confidential at this very moment,” she says. 

“I will inform naman everyone what will happen as soon as things have been confirmed. As of now, nothing is sure yet.”

Lovi is very proud of the Imono Jewelry SS21 collection she herself curated consisting of bracelets, earrings, necklaces, rings and bangles that aim to bring out any woman’s inner strength needed to have a positive and pro-active attitude. 

She adds: “I chose the designs in this collection based on what I look for in everyday jewelry. It has to be versatile so it can look good in any outfit for any occasion. 

"It has to be elegant with refined details so it highlights the beauty of the person wearing it. It should also help bring out the best qualities in a person—it’s an extension of what’s within. 

"Jewelry is very personal and for me, I wear Imono to remind myself of my own values so I can always exude inner-strength and confidence, even on the most challenging days.”

As for "Owe My Love", Lovi's romance with Rocco Nacino as Doc Kenneth has been aborted after she discovered some of the secrets he has been keeping from here. So does that mean that she will now revive her romance with Benjamin Alves as Doc Migs?

"That you will have to find out for yourself sa pagpapatuloy ng 'Owe My Love'. Marami pang kakaharaping problema ang character ko as Sensen dahil si Jackielou Blanco as Divina is planning our more evil schemes against me and my family."
