Model-Actor Edward Mendez Denies Romantic Relationship With Vicky BeloModel-turned-actor Edward Mendez finally broke his silence about his supposed relationship with Dra. Vicky Belo.
Mendez said he and Belo knew each other even before Hayden Kho came into the celebrity doctor's life.
He maintained he sees Belo only as a friend. “But with Vicki kasi, it’s pure platonic."
"Like I’ve said previously, hindi talaga maiwasang ma-link ako sa kanya. Dahil noong pinasok ko ang showbiz, connected talaga ako sa kanya and her family."
He understands why Belo is linked continually with him--because people see him with the doctor especially after her breakup with Kho.
“For the record, hindi talaga naging kami—platonic lang.”
Mendez said he is currently single.
Meanwhile, Mendez will soon be introduced as a leading man actor in "Kung Fu Divas" with Ai-Ai Delas Alas and Marian Rivera.
He first joined the cast of "Pinay Pie" with Delas Alas 10 years ago.
Mendez shared he is happy and excited to be working together with the Comedy Concert Queen.
He said he had to audition for the role in "Kung Fu Divas."
“Of course, to go to the same process, siyempre, kailangan nilang makita kung kaya kong ganapin yung character."
Mendez felt blessed and proud that he was the one chosen for the role. However, he doesn't want to be typecasted to sexy roles.
He also said he cannot allow himself to be intimidated by Delas Alas and Rivera.
“Siguro, for me, to play the character very well, kailangang tanggalin ko ang ilang."
“Pero, okay naman sila ka-work off-cam. So, I felt so welcome."
Mendez said his leading ladies have a perfect tandem and chemistry. “So, just being part of this dynamic combination, malaking blessing na sa akin yun."
He considers "Kung Fu Divas" as his biggest break, so far.
