MANILA – Actress Eula Valdez is dating “Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Double Up” housemate Alvin Kirby “Rocky” Salumbides.

Valdez, 41, admitted the relationship after Rocky confessed to his fellow housemates that “Amor Powers,” a famous character portrayed by the actress, is his girlfriend.

Valdez said she turned giddy after watching a PBB episode where Rocky, 29, proclaimed his love for her.

“Napanood ko rin noong tinanong siya, ‘Binata ka? Binata pero taken.’ Ang haba ng hair ko (laughs),” she said.

The two met when they shot a music video together, according to Valdez.

Meanwhile, the actress said she is hurting amid the criticisms being hurled against her boyfriend. Rocky, along with other 3 male PBB housemates, has been accused of discrimination after he poked fun at “Transgender Math Goddess” Rica Paras.

Conceding that Rocky made a mistake, she still called on the public to give him another chance. -Report from Marie Lozano, ABS-CBN News
