|Kim Chiu gets emotional during her 'The Buzz' guesting|
MANILA – Kim Chiu on Sunday said she has already forgiven her erstwhile best friend Maja Salvador and former boyfriend Gerald Anderson.
In January, Chiu expressed regret over her "wasted" friendship with Salvador, following reports of a blooming relationship between her "Ina Kapatid Anak" co-star and Anderson.
Salvador and Anderson have since openly expressed that they are special to each other.
Chiu and Anderson broke up in 2010 amid controversies surrounding their relationship.
“Madaling magpatawad pero mahirap kalimutan yung ginawa nila sa iyo. Napatawad ko naman na sila,” Chiu said on “The Buzz” as tears welled up in her eyes.
Chiu also told "The Buzz" host Boy Abunda that the reason she is able to work with Salvador in the hit primetime series is because of her love for work.
“Professionalism siguro, number one, and sa pagmamahal ko sa trabaho ko kaya [nakakapagtrabaho kami],” she said.
Asked if she is also hoping that everything will be okay in the future, Chiu said: “Oo naman. Wala namang nangangarap magkaroon ng pangit na buhay. Pero time will tell and siguro hindi pa ngayon.”
Asked what she is praying for right now, Chiu said she asks God for strength.
“For God to give me more strength para maitayo ko ang sarili ko. Tinutulungan niya naman ako, alam ko naman iyon. I’m so thankful and I’m so blessed,” she said.
Amid the challenges that she faces everyday, Chiu said she is grateful that her family is always there to inspire her.
“Inspiration ko ang mga kapatid ko. Kaya naman ako pumasok sa showbiz dahil sa kanila. Sa lahat ng mga nangyayari, wala ka talagang mapagkakatiwalaang tao kundi ang pamilya mo. Na-prove ko iyon kasi sa lahat ng mga nangyayari, nandiyan ang mga kapatid ko,” she said.
She also thanks her fans who loyally defend her against her bashers.
“Dati [naaapektuhan ako]. But now, sige bahala kayo hindi ko naman kayo mapi-please lahat, pero inaaway sila ng mga fans ko. Nakakatawa minsan pero sobra akong nagpapasalamat dahil pinagtatanggol nila ako. Salamat sa pagmamahal,” she told Abunda.
