Robi Domingo Settles Issue With Rayver CruzThere were rumors that there was an issue between Robi Domingo and Rayver Cruz when the former joked that the latter was all-eyes while Sarah Geronimo was performing "Let It Go" on the ASAP stage.
Rayver and Sarah had a relationship in 2010 but it did not prosper because of Sarah's parents' opposition to it. Sarah is now dating Matteo Guidicelli while Rayver is supposedly single.
Because of Robi's comment, Rayver said: "Gusto mo tutukan ko yung mukha mo mamaya?" Although the two passed it off as a joke, many noticed that there was a seeming tension after that.
Robi admitted it was a lapse of judgment on his part to deliver a joke like that on national television. Whatever was between Rayver and Sarah should remain in the past, he said.
After the show, Robi apologized to Rayver and Rayver apologized to him as well.
He is not the right person to comment about their past relationship, so Robi said he also wants to apologize to all Sarah's and Rayver's fans who felt he crossed the line with the joke.
"I’m only doing my job. Sinabihan lang ako ng mga director, writers, 'Dude, just play around with the whole relationship thing.' Kasi that’s my job, e, trabaho ko yun. Kumbaga, walang personalan."
What happened was just a miscommunication, Robi said, adding that Rayver was never the type of person to be easily irritated because of a joke. There are no big issues, and they have both moved on from it.
They just found it funny that the issue was stretched so much that even the tabloids run it already.
Meanwhile, Robi recently admitted that he has a crush on Queen Of All Media Kris Aquino. He said this during an interview by Boy Abunda.
It won't be a reason, however, for him and girlfriend Gretchen Ho to fight. It was a petty joke and attraction, Robi pointed out. He admires Kris because she speaks the truth and whatever she says, she believes it as the truth.
"When Kris Aquino tells something, yun siya. Para sa kanya, yun ang totoo. Yun ang gusto ko sa isang babae."
It was also safe to answer Kris as his crush because he will surely get a beating from Gretchen. If he said his crush was Kim Chiu, it will surely be an issue with Gretchen that he might have a mark on his face already, he joked.
Rayver, on the other hand, also cleared the issue. "Hindi, hiritan lang namin yun. Ganun naman talaga ako humirit sa kanya."
Maybe the people just didn't get that he is always like that to Robi. He forgot that they were in front of the camera, so he joked with him like that.
There is no problem between the two of them, he added. They are actually friends. He said many comments on Twitter but he doesn't mind them because there was no truth to the issue.
Robi is thankful that he is currently hosting "Pinoy Big Brother All In" and soon, "The Voice Kids." He feels blessed and happy for the opportunities.
"Sobra, sobra! Nagpapasalamat ako, sobrang pasasalamat ko sa management, sa Star Magic for tapping me with my hosting career. It’s something that I want and something that’s what needed right now."
He feels everything is at it's perfect time right now in his life. Like serendipity, Robi said. He was supposed to enter medical school at the Ateneo de Manila University, but he deferred this to continue his hosting stint on ABS-CBN.
He is excited for "Pinoy Big Brother All In" because this will be the first time that the show will mix the regular, teen and celebrity housemates. There will be a lot of challenges and a lot of revelations.
