The year 2019 has brought celebrities on a rollercoaster of emotions. While there were tons of double-tap-worthy showbiz announcements, such as engagement and pregnancies, we also witnessed celebrity split-ups that forced us to a ‘sad reaction only’. Here’s a refresher on the biggest breakup revelations that happened on Tonight with Boy Abunda.
Sexy actress Nathalie Hart said goodbye to a “happily ever after” with Indian boyfriend, Mayank Sharma, the father of her baby, Penelope. In July last year, Nathalie was thrilled to announce her pregnancy and some wedding plans but things eventually ended between the new parents due to personal differences. On the December 5 episode, Nathalie admitted that her emotions aren’t being reciprocated in the relationship. “It’s better for us to have separate lives for our daughter to have a happy environment. He is the father of my child, I love him but that’s it for now,” Nathalie’s tearful confession.
Following a cryptic social media post about “moving on,” Sue Ramirez confirmed her breakup with BoybandPH member Joao Constancia after two years of being together. In an episode aired on September 5, the Kapamilya actress was clearly holding back her tears as she explained the reason behind the painful separation. “Maraming bagay na hindi napagkakasunduan, although, we really wanted it to work. Pero, ‘pag hindi, hindi talaga,” Sue directly admitted. The good news is the ex-lovers managed to sustain their friendship and communication.
With I Belong to the Zoo’s hugot song “Sana” playing in the background, Arci Muñoz broke into tears after having been asked about her relationship status in an episode aired on August 30. The actress requested for privacy as she goes through the painful process of moving on and didn’t give further explanation on the factors behind her split with businessman Anthony Ng.
Jaine Oineza pointed out her need to prioritize self-love and career when asked why she called it quits with fellow Pinoy Big Brother alumnus Kyle Secades. While the break up was solely initiated by Jane, the actress clarified that they had a peaceful talk before officially parting ways.
Netizens and avid viewers of Pinoy Big Brother Otso lambasted Karina Bautista for engaging in a controversial romance with fellow teen housemate Aljon Mendoza despite being committed to someone else outside Kuya’s house. On the February 8 episode, Karina confessed that her non-showbiz boyfriend, now ex, was hurt. And while ‘another boy’ was one of the factors that created friction in the relationship, Karina clarified that their break up was a mutual decision.
Another Pinoy Big Brother teen graduate who unravelled a break up story this year is Seth Fedelin, now the other half of the popular love team SethDrea alongside Andrea Brillantes. While inside Bahay Ni Kuya, the Kadenang Ginto actor was caught denying his relationship with his non-showbiz girlfriend, now ex. Seth talked about the issue in the January 18 episode, saying he and his ex-girlfriend remain the best of friends. The latter, according to Seth, urged him to continue working on his dreams.
Fresh from her stint in the 2018 Miss Universe pageant, Catriona Gray revealed that she and Clint Bondad have ended their six-year relationship prior to her win. The news came as a real surprise to everyone since Clint showed all-out support to Catriona by flying to the States to watch the competition live. According to the beauty queen, starting out a relationship in a very young age sometimes leads to outgrowing each other. The Miss Universe titleholder displayed female strength when she opted to look at the ‘silver lining’ of the situation and dwell on the happy memories she shared with Clint. Not all endings are supposed to be bitter, take it from Queen Cat.
