Shaina Magdayao has always been private about her personal life but she took the time to answer questions and rumors hurled at her.

In an interview by Magandang Buhay, she was asked by the hosts about her love life. When asked how long has the Asintado star been single, she coyly answered, “Matagal tagal na.” [It’s been awhile.]

But the hosts didn’t let Shaina off the hook and asked her about her rumored boyfriend, Piolo Pascual. She was asked to choose which best describes Piolo— “More than friend, friend for now, friend for now but could be more in the future.”

The Kapamilya star stuttered a bit and decided to go for a more unique answer. She said, “We are friends now and I think we will be friends for a long time.”

Shaina continued to explain that she only has a few close friends in showbiz. She revealed, “I really value sincere and genuine people na nakakatrabaho ko. Kapag may nakakasama ako sa mga bagong proyekto at nararamdaman ko ang ang pagka-genuine nila, I keep them.”

[I really value sincere and genuine people who I get to work with. When I get to be with new peope in a new project and I feel that they are genuine, I keep them.]

She agreed that Piolo is one of them.

It was March last year when Piolo admitted to Boy Abunda that he loves Shaina Magdayao. He went on to say that they have a “mutual understanding” and it’s something special they want to keep private. This came after rumors started surfacing that they are “exclusively dating.”
