Ervic Vijandre, Ariella Arida No Longer TogetherErvic Vijandre admitted he and Miss Universe 2013 third runner-up Ariella Arida have broken up. The two never confirmed they were together.
They have been separated for months, so Ervic said it will be a cold Christmas for him again. They dated for two years, although Ervic cannot say if they were officially together because there were some conflicts.
Although he is open to revealing the real reason why they broke up, he doesn't want it to be publicized because Ariella's camp may react. He also doesn't want more complications in their "relationship."
Aside from that reason, they have both been busy with their lives. They have different paths, the actor said, adding that they remained friends after the breakup. They don't talk now, but Ervic insisted they are okay.
Ervic's relationships do not seem to last. Before Ariella, he was also with Rich Asuncion. He also asks himself what's wrong with him because he gets tired going back to the dating game again.
However, he cannot force his relationships, especially when it gets entangled with work.
Although Ariella is very special to him, maybe they are better off as friends, Ervic said. That may sound cliche, but he cannot force things to go his way. He said they both tried to make their relationship work.
Ervic was advised to try to be by himself first... to try to be happy being single. For now, he wants to focus on his family and his career. If someone will come along, then good. But if not, then he has something for himself too.
Meanwhile, Ervic said he's happy for ex-girlfriend Marian Rivera, who's getting married to Dingdong Dantes on December 30. They had something special, so he wishes her the best.
He knows the wedding is very important for Marian because she has been waiting for it. He's just really happy because she was able to reach all her dreams--the fame and a future family.
They never had the chance to talk again, but they just say "hi" when they bump into each other. He worked for a time with Dingdong on "Genesis." Although there was an awkward moment at first, they were able to work through it.
His past with Marian has been over for so long already that it really doesn't matter what happened then.
Ervic will be a part of GMA-7's "Kailan Tama Ang Mali."
