Robi Domingo Is Very Proud Of Rumored Girlfriend Gretchen HoAlthough they are not official together yet, Robi Domingo said that he is very proud of rumored girlfriend, Ateneo Lady Eagles' Gretchen Ho.
Domingo said during an interview with PEP.PH at the launching of the Brazilian timepiece brand YOT (Your Own Time) that he is very proud of Ho because she was able to make a name for herself.
Ho is a popular volleyball player with more than 220,000 likes on her Facebook page and lamost 88,000 followers on Twitter.
She is now graduating from the Ateneo de Manila University.
“Well since before naman, she’s been in the super up there, you know, in the popular sphere. But when I got to know her kasi, I didn’t mind that. You know, I got to know her as a friend," Domingo said of Ho.
Domingo, who attended the all-boys Ateneo de Manila High School, met Ho when they were in third year high school.
Ho was then studying at the all-girls Immaculate Conception Academy.
Domingo revealed that both schools hold soirees to encourage interaction between the students.
He said that during one of the soirees, some of the students from Xavier came in, so the Ateneo boys felt threatened and disrespected.
Domingo said that they felt disrespected because it was supposed to be a soiree between Ateneo and ICA.
During that soiree, he met Ho. However, they didn't became friends until later.
“We didn’t get a chance to talk to each other well kasi yung soiree was really bad, tapos after that, we met college na. After PBB [Pinoy Big Brother] yun," Domingo shared.
He said that they got to know each other during the Ateneo placement office ad campaign.
After that, their next encounter was during one of Ho's game.
Domingo said that Ho's mom invited his mom, who then invited the whole family.
At the San Juan Arena, Domingo saw Vice Ganda who then proceeded to tease him and Ho.
Domingo then revealed that Ho will be part of Balls, ABS-CBN's sports cable channel. But when it comes to showbiz, Domingo said he doesn't want to interfere in her decision.
“Siya bahala siya dun. I don’t have anything to say to that one. I’ll be here, very supportive and I’ll just be at her back always,” he told PEP.PH.
On Balls, Ho will be doing sports hosting.
“Our deal was for her not to go to my sphere: gameshows, reality shows, variety shows," he said.
Domingo apparently told Ho not to do what he does in showbiz because they might have a misunderstanding.
He said that he wants to separate work and his personal life.
When asked about the qualities he likes about Ho, Domingo said that she's very independent.
"I mean, what’s one thing I won’t like about her? Nothing.”
PEP.PH asked Domingo about their Valentine's date, but he refused to divulge the information.
He just said that he spends as much time with Ho as possible, and that he wants to give his free time to the people who matters to him.
