MANILA, Philippines – Talk show host Cristy Fermin has words of advice for actress Angelica Panganiban on her supposed "flaunting" of gifts reportedly given to her by rumored boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz.

"Konti-konti lang siguro ang pagmamalaki at paghugot 'di ba," Fermin said on her showbiz-oriented talk show during its Friday episode.

Fermin is referring to Panganiban's recent posts on micro-blogging site Twitter, including images showing her in a new vehicle -- a Mercedes Benz SLK -- which has been reported to be a gift from Cruz.

"'Pag ikaw ay isang personalidad, binibigyan ng iba’t-ibang interpretasyon ng iba-ibang kampo [ang pagpo-post sa mga social networking sites]," the controversial host said.

"Katulad ni Angelica Panganiban -- nagi-Instagram, nagti-Twitter, nagfe-Facebook siya tungkol sa mga regalong ibinibigay sa kanya ni John Lloyd Cruz," she added.

According to Fermin, Panganiban's posts showing Cruz's alleged gifts may be seen as the Kapamilya actress' way of showing off to their respective former partners.

Before her rumored relationship with Cruz, Panganiban was in a six-year relationship with actor Derek Ramsay. Cruz, meanwhile, confirmed his breakup with actress Shaina Magdayao in May.

"Nandoon 'yung interpretasyon na, 'Ano ba 'to, ba't niya ipinapakita 'yung mga regalo? Bakit niya ipinagmamalaki lahat ng mga bagay-bagay,'" Fermin said.

"'Ito ba'y dahil iniinggit niya si Shaina Magdayao... o ito'y pinariringgan niya si Derek na nagbigay din ng sasakyan sa kanya noon pero balitang kinabog ng P5.1 million worth na kotse na 'di umano'y binigay sa kanya ni John Lloyd," added Fermin, referring to a Mini Cooper Ramsay had given Panganiban in 2009.

Citing the short time span they have been romantically linked, Fermin cautioned Panganiban and Cruz against "boasting" of their new relationship.

"Sana, tutal din lang bago palang sila, mahirap na ipagmalaki ang iilang linggo, iilang buwan palang na relasyon. Baka mamaya pagdating ng panahong maghiwalay, pagtatawanan sila," Fermin said.

"Si Shaina naman dedma lang, si Derek napaka-gentleman naman," she added.

Since they were rumored to be in a relationship in recent months, Cruz and Panganiban have kept mum on their real status as a couple. The two have also been avoidant of questions on their relationship when asked in interviews for their respective projects.

Currently, Cruz and Panganiban are in Nice, France, along with other ABS-CBN stars, for the "Kapamilya Karavan," a promotional tour held internationally for Filipino audiences.
