MANILA, Feb 2 (Mabuhay) – Young actor Enchong Dee has shrugged off speculations saying that aside from Kim Chiu, he is also courting beauty queen turned actress Bianca Manalo.

Dee admitted that he indeed went out with Manalo but it was along with friends.

The actor maintained that he and his friends only ran into Manalo at Greenbelt in Makati and they decided to hang out together.

“Hindi naman po siguro tinatago kasi kung tinatago hindi naman siguro kami makikita sa Greenbelt. Nagkasama-sama kami pero hindi lang naman kaming 2 ni Bianca,” he said.

This was also affirmed by Manalo in a separate interview.

“Wala magkaibigan lang. Sa Greenbelt nanood ng sine. Kasama ko si Bekimon. Dapat date namin 2 yon. Tapos tinext ako ni Erich na nandoon daw sila sa Greenbelt. Sasama na lang daw si Enchong, kasama niya iyong ibang bata, so nanood kami,” she related.

The beauty queen was also not able to help herself as she reacted to other reports linking her to various male celebrities.

“Alam mo lahat na lang. Kay Zanjoe, James Yap, Enchong. Sino next?” she said in jest.

Manalo stressed that she has no love life as of the moment but she remains unaffected since she is very happy with how her career is currently progressing. (MNS)
