MANILA, Philippines -- Actor Enchong Dee defended his close friend Maja Salavador against bashers and media over photos that circulated in the Internet showing the actress vacationing with actor Gerald Anderson in a high-end resort in Albay.

Anderson is the ex-boyfriend of actress Kim Chiu, who stars with Salvador and Dee in the hit primetime series "Ina Kapatid Anak."

While Chiu was quoted as saying that their friendship has been affected by the reports of a possible Anderson-Salvador romance, Dee believes it's not fair to say the two women are fighting over one man and that this will affect the atmosphere at the set.

"I think it's not healthy na sabihin na mayroon silang friction dahil lang, because of, isang tao at I think hindi enough reason 'yon para pag-awayan," Dee said In an interview on Tuesday during the press conference for their soap.

Dee also believes the two actresses will weather this storm because of their long friendship.

"'Yung pagkakaibigan nila na naipon, hindi 'yon basta mawawala dahil lang doon. Siguro marami pang pwedeng mangyayari after today," Dee said.

As for social media bashers, Dee's advice to Salvador is to just ignore.

"Siguro hindi naman 'yon mawawala. They will never be gone, palagi silang nandiyan and they will always have their opinions and, for whatever it is, our lives are not their lives," he said.
