Even Ogie Diaz was shocked when rumors about Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil secretly getting hitched started going around.
Eagle-eyed fans spotted the pair rocking “matching” rings from a recent YouTube video posted on her channel last August 22.
Screenshots were passed around online, driving speculations that they aren’t just rings, but wedding bands, and they are now actually married.
On his own channel, the entertainment news reporter, who’s also the actress’ manager, squashed these gossips once and for all.
“’Yung singsing na 'yan ay hindi totoo. Parang ano 'yan photo shoot or nagva-vlog sila, nandoon si Perry. Ipinasuot ni Perry kay Liza 'yung singsing na props,” he explained.
But he admitted his reaction was just like everyone else’s when he saw the said posts. “Naloka ako. Daming nag-tag. Ako itong, ‘Ha? Totoo ba ito? Bakit walang sinasabi sa akin si Liza? Ako ang manager, wala akong alam.’ Kaya ako na-shock, kaya siyempre dali-dali ako ay nag-text kay Liza para linawin lahat.”
He added, “Bilang manager, ayaw ko na nahuhuli ako sa balita. Hindi dahil ako ay isang reporter o taga-media, kung ‘di bilang manager, dapat alam ko lahat ng nangyayari sa talent ko. Kaya sabi ko kay Liza, ayaw ko [maging] the last one to know.”
So Ogie called up the “Trese” star and asked, “‘Nak, ano ba ito?' So pinasa ko kay Liza ‘yung naka-encircle na singsing (sa pictures). Sabi ni Liza, 'Parehong kanan po 'yan. 'Yung isa ay accessory na suot ko, 'yun 'yung galing kay Tito Perry; 'yung ring po ni Quen, kanya po 'yon.”
“Kaya sabi ko kay Liza, 'Alam mo naman ako anak puwede mo akong lihiman, basta huwag lang ako 'yung last one to know.' Ang sabi ni Liza, 'No problem po, malalaman niyo po kung sakali,’” he shared.
Ogie said he knows the two would eventually end up together, but as someone who’s close to them, he wishes they fulfill all their dreams in their careers first before settling down. “Ako naman, feeling ko talaga, sina Enrique at Liza, sila din ang magkakatuluyuan sa ending.”
