Alyssa Quijano Speaks Up For The First TimeAlyssa Quijano, the girlfriend of recently-out Charice Pempengco, has spoken for the first time since it was revealed that she is in a relationship with the international singer.
It was Kris Aquino for her show KrisTV that Quijano chose to speak to as she broke her silence. Aquino recently visited Charice in Laguna where Quijano also agreed to an interview.
Asked how the two started communicating, Quijano told Aquino: “Basta nagkaroon lang po kami ng communication. Through Facebook lang po kamustahan. Tapos ayun hanggang sa nagka-kwentuhan kami noon.”
When Aquino asked what the couple thinks is the reason why Charice’s mom Raquel does not like Quijano for her daughter, Charice said: “Ang mahirap kasi dito 'yung main theme na sinasabi ng mommy ko is magka-kumpetensiya kami before sa mga singing contest. So parang 'yun ;yung medyo hindi namin ma-get kasi parang iniisip niya ay magkalaban talaga. So siguro shock siya at hindi ini-expect.”
Quijano competed in the ABS-CBN reality talent search X-Factor Philippines when Charice was a member of the judging panel.
