MANILA, JUNE 1, 2012 (BULLETIN) By ROWENA JOY A. SANCHEZ - Notwithstanding her heightened openness in meeting “new people,” it seems that for now, KC Concepcion can only offer friendship to her persistent admirers, including Jules Knight, member of the British classic-pop group Blake.

The TV host-actress took to Twitter on May 31 to express her gratitude for the friendship she has forged with Jules, whom she met in October 2011 when Blake first came to the country for a show.

“I've enjoyed getting to know him in the last few months, and realised that a close friendship is the best I can offer right now.❤u all :),” said KC.

Prior, Jules posted a series of seemingly sad tweets that went, “I think Miss KC would be too busy working to see me. As you've seen in recent interviews, KC has other priorities in life."

Interestingly, he followed these posts with a YouTube link of George Michael’s performance of the Bonnie Raitt hit, “I Can’t Make You Love Me.”

However things have turned for him and KC, Jules assured that he “hasn’t changed at all.”

“I still mean what I said in Manila. I love you all and KC is a great friend. Have a nice day. X,” he added.

Meanwhile, KC informed her over one million followers also on Wednesday that she has “privately spoken” to Jules “after seeing all of his tweets."

Jules got to know KC more when they met again last March, during Blake’s second visit to the country. And in what may well have been a first for KC, Jules kneeled before her on national TV to ask her out on a date.

The two just might see each other anew this year, as Jules has confirmed Blake’s return to the country in December for their Christmas shows.

In a previous interview with Bulletin Entertainment, Jules raved about KC's beauty and personality, calling her a "national treasure" and a "lovely, fantastic girl."

Piolo Pascual Denies Romancing Cristine Reyes By NR RAMOS May 31, 2012, 4:54pm

MANILA, Philippines – Piolo Pascual is too busy for love.

According to the actor, he is juggling far too many projects of late to be able to explore matters of the heart.

"I was segueing from one set to another. I finished shooting for ‘Every Breath [You Take’]. And then the TV show [‘Dahil Sa Pag-ibig’] and we’re also doing Star Magic movie to segue to Kris’s [Aquino] movie [‘Undo’]. So, I hardly have time for anything else," said he in a recent interview with PEP.

Because of his loaded schedule, rumors romantically linking him to “Dahil Sa Pag-Ibig” co-star Cristine Reyes is just that though he admits that they have gotten to know more of each other in the course of work.

"You know what, inevitable naman 'yan [his closeness with Reyes] sa trabaho, especially when you’re together every day sa soap," he said. "[Pero] hindi natin puwedeng bigyan ng malice yun.”

He added, “You know, I’ve always been a friend [to Reyes].”

The 35-year old hunk pooh-poohed the odds of this friendship blossoming into something more intimate, saying he respects Reyes’ beau, Rayver Cruz.

“I’m Rayver’s friend before I became Cristine’s friend. Matagal na kaming magkatrabaho ni Rayver. Mag-Kapamilya, magkapatid kami sa Star Magic,” he said.

Candid as he was in discussing seemingly inconsequential worries, Pascual was quick to lose himself in rhetoric when it comes to questions relating to his ex-girlfriend, KC Concepcion.

Asked if he is bothered with his name being constantly dragged into issues involving Concepcion, Pascual said, "I’m good. I mean I shouldn’t complain. It’s a blessing. It’s a blessing to be alive every day… to be waking up to a new day and having something worthwhile to do. So, it’s a blessing."

He went back to being outspoken when talking about the movie he is set to do with Aquino.

"We already had a preliminary meeting with Kris and Direk Chito [Rono] and Star Cinema. So we hope to start rolling in June," he said.

Pascual described the film as “serious.”

“A lot of people think it’s horror but it’s not," he said hinting that he and Aquino will have some steamy scenes for the movie.

"Mag-asawa [kami dito], so it’s quite legal," he explained.
