MANILA – On Monday’s episode of Kris TV, funny lady Pokwang (Marietta Subong) confirmed that she is currently in a relationship with American actor Lee O’Brien. O’Brien is her leading man in TFC’s movie “Edsa Woolworth”

“Sana ito na, tama na yung ano, Lord, sana ito na po,” Pokwang said, as she expressed her hopes that O’Brien would be “the one” for her.

(I hope and pray that this is the one.)

Pokwang said that she an O’Brien officially entered into a relationship on January 20, when the actor visited the country for the movie’s premiere.

“Dumating at bonggang promo, (premiere night) tapos nag-Boracay. Tapos three days after bumalik ng Manila, yun na nagkasarinlan kaming dalawa, may quality time para mag-usap kung ano ba tayo, ano talaga,” Pokwang shared.

(He arrived for the premiere night then went to Boracay. Three days after, he came back to Manila, we were then able to spend time alone, quality time together to talk and figure out what we really are to each other.)

“Mahirap baka mamaya hindi ba mahirap na ako lang yung in love. Tapos doon ko nalaman, sinabi niya na alam mo ba first shooting day pa lang mayroon na siya keme (feelings for me). Sinabi ko ano tayo? (What are we?) tapos hinalikan niya ako, tapos sinabi niya gusto niya ako, masaya siya kapag nakikita niya ako kapag magkasama kami, yun yon,” she explained, as she noted that she initiated the conversation about their status.

(It is difficult because what if I was the only one in love. But it was then that I found out, he told me that even on our very first shooting day, he already had feelings for me. So I said, what are we? Then he kissed me and said that he likes me, that he is happy when he sees me and when we are together, that was it.)

According to Pokwang, telling her daughter Ria Mae Subong was the most challenging part of her new relationship.

“Actually nahirapan ako kay bagets ‘paano ba ito?’ yun pala naghihintay lang siya na magsabi ako pero okay naman sa kanya,” she said.

(Actually, it was difficult for me with the teen ‘how is this done?’ But it turns out she was just waiting for me to say something and it is actually ok with her.)

Pokwang revealed that O’Brien will be in Manila this April, in order to spend time with her. When asked, she also said that she is open to moving to the USA, in order to be with O’Brien.

“Siguro, tapos dream din ni Mae na mag-work abroad, pagkatapos niya,” she added.

(Probably, and it is also Mae’s dream to work abroad when she graduates.)
