John Lapus Hopes Kris Aquino And Ai-Ai Delas Alas Will ReconcileJohn Lapus is aware that there is a current rift between his friends Kris Aquino and Ai-Ai Delas Alas. He heard about it in the news, but has no knowledge about the reason.
He hasn't seen Ai-Ai for a while and they only talk through Instagram. As for Kris, he only sees her when he's a co-host in the morning show "Kris TV."
"Feeling ko naman, matanda na iyang dalawa na iyan, alam na nila ang ginagawa nila. As a friend, what I can do na lang siguro is mag-pray na eventually maayos bilang sayang yung friendship nila."
John said Kris and Ai-Ai have a strong friendship and he is friends with them individually. He doesn't want to be put in a situation where the two of them won't even talk to each other.
Kris is someone who will give space to a friend if there's a misunderstanding. John knew her longer, and he admires that Kris can give space to a friend during tough times. Also, it's admirable that Kris can "forgive and forget" once everything is okay.
Kris can forget that there's an issue between her and a certain friend, John said.
"Pero si Kris, ang galing-galing niya sa ganyan. Naibabalik niya yung trust, yung friendship. Knowing Kris, maaayos din ito."
No one wants to have an enemy, John said. He hopes that the two will fix things. In fact, Kris has a reputation for making the first move when fixing a friendship.
John hopes Kris can do the same with Ai-Ai. The two reportedly had a misunderstanding when Kris wasn't able to attend the wake and burial of Ai-Ai's biological mom because she was in London at that time.
Meanwhile, John doesn't want to be "negative" because of the many blessings coming his way. He is now part of ABS-CBN's "Mira Bella."
He is thankful to Deo Endrinal, the head of Dreamscape Entertainment, for giving him this project. He is not in an exclusive contract with ABS-CBN, but they kept on giving him projects.
Since he came back to ABS-CBN, all his shows are under Dreamscape. "Sabi ko nga, parang bilog talaga ang mundo."
His first job in the showbiz industry was as a researcher under Deo for "Showbiz Linggo." Now that he is an actor, his boss is still Deo. He is thankful to Deo for giving him projects, especially after he heard that he has no shows with GMA-7 anymore.
"Mira Bella" is his biggest break in teleserye since he plays a lead role with Pokwang and Julia Barretto. Typically, he plays a gay role in a soap to provide laughter. But in this series, he stands as a parent to Mira (played by Julia).
"Sabi ko nga, yung role ko, finally, yung hindi matutuloy ang taping pag wala ako. Alam mo yung ganun?"
His dialogues before are just punchlines, but in "Mira Bella," his dialogues with Pokwang are "kilometric."
Aside from "Mira Bella," he is also busy with other projects. John said he always wants that he's busy with projects. He promised himself that he will never complain even though he doesn't have enough time to sleep or rest.
"Again, mas mabuti na yung walang tulog kaysa wala kang ginagawa." He gets stressed when he doesn't do anything.
He's also doing "Wansapanataym" and "The Possessed" with Vhong Navarro.
When asked about Vhong, John said he looks happy and his wounds are starting to heal. He's also doing well and he's telling jokes already.
"Pero kahit papaano, makikita mo na may fear for himself kahit papaano. And sa nangyari naman, sino ba naman ang hindi matatakot?"
Vhong was mauled allegedly by the group of Chinese businessman Cedric Lee. Also, he is facing rape charges from model-stylist Deniece Cornejo and former beauty queen Roxanne Cabanero.
