Actress Lovi Poe has further opened up about current beau Rocco Nacino, several days after admitting their ongoing romance on national TV.

Lovi described Rocco as a great traveling companion, a very organized one at that. She added that the 27-year-old is also quite good in planning their dates.

She shared, “Baliktad kami kasi he plans for everything. The girl is supposed to plan everything, ‘di ba?”

Lovi says Rocco has another talent: haggling.

“One time, I fell in love with a painting so lumapit ako I asked for the price and it’s really expensive. Then he started to do his move and we got two paintings at half price. So sabi ko, ‘Kasama na kita wherever I go,’” she said.

Lovi further described her relationship with Rocco as “parang mag-bestfriend,” noting, “When you date someone, may mga moments kasi na you’re trying to put your best foot forward all the time, but with me and Rocco, nothing.”

She shared how Rocco inspired her to love her job more. “I’ve always been inspired with work but with this one, it’s extra inspiration.”

Lovi is happy enough to simply be content with what they have now. “We know what is just right for our age,” she said. “Kasi when you love someone there is always a sacrifice and it’s always a compromise.”

Lovi, who plays one of Dingdong Dantes’ wives on “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real,” feels “blessed” to work on the series, citing in particular how inspiring it is to work with veteran actors Maricel Soriano, Tommy Abuel and  Susan Africa.

Ang sarap nilang kasama. Kumbaga, they would actually treat you like their own child,” she said.

She also finds it quite amusing how netizens are quite vocal about their reactions to the show via Twitter, saying, “Ang dami nilang parang mga side comments like kung ano dapat gawin ng mga character… I’m glad that they are affected.”

This assuaged her initial concern about her role. “I didn’t picture this to be interesting… parang I was like, ‘how would this go?’”

Eventually, the character proved challenging enough for Lovi, who also felt excited that the storyline has been “quite unpredictable.”

Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real” airs Monday to Friday on GMA-7. (MNS)
