MANILA – Comedienne Ai Ai delas Alas turned emotional on Sunday as she thanked her businessman boyfriend Jed Salang for not giving up on their relationship after their most recent misunderstanding.
Speaking on “The Buzz” on Sunday, delas Alas said she feels grateful to have Salang by her side despite her insecurities in life.
“Thank you for not giving up on us. Thank you na hinabol mo ako, hindi ka nawalan ng pag-asa. Thank you for loving me,” she said.
Last week on "The Buzz," her manager Boy Abunda confirmed that she and Salang are going through a rough patch. This was after the comedienne immediately left the country after her concert with South Korean rapper Psy to go to the United States.
On Sunday, delas Alas bared that it was when she was in the U.S. that she realized that she deserves a chance at love.
“Ang dami kong insecurities sa buhay, ang dami kong dinaanan pagdating sa love life. Sobrang takot na takot ako nung nakarelasyon ko si Jed kasi alam naman natin na bata siya, marami pa siyang makikita, pero siyempre iba pa rin ang ganda ko. 'Yung insecurities ko nagkapatong-patong, 'yung tampuhan namin nagkapatong-patong. And then nung lumipad ako sa America, doon ko na-realize na siguro bigyan ko ang chance ang sarili ko na umibig muli,” she said.
Saying Salas is God-given, delas Alas said she will do her best to make their relationship work.
“Lahat naman ng tao walang kasiguruhan ang buhay. Sabi ko anong magiging garantiya ko na kapag hindi si Jed, isang matanda or kaedad ko, paano ako magiging sure na magwo-work out kami? Sabi ko baka ito nga ang binigay ni Lord and maging happy na lang ako sa binigay niya. Ilalaban ko ang relasyon namin until the end,” she said.
Salang, for his part, said he is willing to marry delas Alas for as long as the actress would want to spend the rest of her life with him.
“Kasal? Siguro iyon kung tatanggapin ako ni Ai,” he said.
