“Tapos uwian na, or may lakad pa. Kasi sila, may mga shooting pa after. Sometimes, and those guys, they’re shy. Hindi naman sila yung akala mo, nagpapatawa diyan. Pagtingin mo, nakaupo lang yan, may kanya-kanyang… seryoso. Hindi sila yung tumatawa o nagpapatawa, she added. She further revealed that it seemed like Vic didn’t formally court her.

Kahit magkasama tayo, puwede ako, puwede ako yung pagkatapos nun, tapos na, bye-bye, ganun. Puwede ako nun, yun lang.”

Chiqui shared how their relationship ended, saying, “Dinenay. Sabi niya, ‘That’s not true.’ I heard it. I heard it somewhere. Pero, you know, that’s like, ‘It’s alright. Cool.’ Hindi naman ako yung makikipag-away. Hindi, hindi.”

Regarding how she handled hosting Eat Bulaga! after their separation, Chiqui stated, “Sabi ko, ‘Basta you’re happy. It’s okay. I’ll go date someone else.’ “Siguro. Hindi ko matandaan.” After leaving Eat Bulaga!, Chiqui moved on to the rival noontime show, Student Canteen, on GMA-7.
