They have been going steady for only more than five years so the break-up of Vic Sotto and Pia Guanio cannot be attributed to the so-called seven-year itch.
“They simply drifted away from each other,” said Funfare Update’s Timog Avenue DPA. “No third party, no lovers’ quarrel, no nothing. It’s not true that Pia got tired waiting for Vic to propose marriage. Wala siyang ganoong expectation. ‘Yung drifting away from each other was mutual.”
That is, despite unconfirmed rumors that Vic has been seeing a non-showbiz lady executive. Both Vic and Pia are mum on the matter and they seem to be putting up a happy front on Eat, Bulaga! As if, you know, nothing happened. There’s another Pia in Vic’s life and her name is casually dropped as one of the probable causes but those close to the un-couple said that could not be because “that Pia” has been abroad for a few years.
Last Holy Week, Vic and Pia (“G,” that is) were still okay during a vacation in Indonesia. But in July, they quietly parted ways, that’s why, according to one of those in the entourage, “they were not sweet sa isa’t-isa anymore during Eat, Bulaga!’s show in Anaheim, California last month.”
Ladies (all Bulaga co-hosts) linked to Vic usually quit the show when the romance ended…as in “co-terminus…” among them Chiqui Hollman, Coney Reyes, Christine Jacob and Kristine Florendo. Oops! Did I miss somebody? Sorry, dami kasi nila, eh! Will Pia “G” go the same way? Well, there’s always an exception, right?
