MANILA – Admitting having a year-long rift with Kapamilya co-star and erstwhile best friend Kim Chiu, actress-performer Maja Salvador shared that they were slowly mending their broken friendship now.
“Ayaw ko nang idetalye po ‘yun. Ayaw ko nang balikan… Kasi sa ngayon, sobrang happy ako na okey kami ni Kim. Na minsan, papunta, pabalik na yung friendship,” Maja said in an interview in Tonight with Boy Abunda.
(I don’t want to give any detail about it. I don’t want to recount… Because right now, I’m very happy that Kim and I are okay. That sometimes, we’re getting there, bringing back our friendship.)
“Kasi iba kami minsan mag-usap sa ASAP… Kasi masaya ako kung anuman ‘yung estado kung anong meron kami ni Kim, papuntang friendship nga po,” she added.
“Sometimes we talk in a different way in ASAP… Because I’m happy with whatever status Kim and I have. We’re becoming friends again.)
It was in 2013 when the two turned sour towards each other as Maja entered into a romantic relationship with actor Gerald Anderson – who happened to be Kim’s first and former boyfriend.
Early this year, the two started casually communicating with each other. They have even been seen performing in the same stage lately.
Maja, however, maintained that she did not regret loving Gerald. But if the actress only knew how it will all end, she confessed that she might have made different decisions on love.
“Siyempre, hindi mo naman maibabalik ang kahapon… Sa mga nangyayari, wala rin naman akong niri-regret kasi ginusto ko naman kasi,” she earlier said.
(Of course, you can’t bring back yesterday… On what happened, I don’t regret anything because I wanted it.)
“Pero kung ang iisipin natin ay yung hindi ako masasaktan, hindi masasaktan yung kaibigan ko [Kim], hindi siya [Gerald] masasaktan, kung may choices nun, siguro gaganun ako, lilihis ako,” she added.
(But if what we’ll think of is refraining me from getting hurt, refraining my friend from getting hurt, refraining him from getting hurt, if there were choices then, maybe I would’ve done it, I would’ve stirred away.)
