Passionate is how Ria Atayde described Pamilya Ko star JM de Guzman. According to Ria, JM is passionate with learning and helping other people learn as well.
The two artists admit that their special friendship may eventually lead into a romantic relationship. “We click very well. With him, I can be my true self without being judged. He cares at nirerepeto niya ako,” Ria shared.
So, what’s stopping them from making it official? Ria said the both of them are not yet ready to jump into a more serious relationship. “We’re both coming from heavy histories,” Ria added. The actress denied the rumors saying she has already rejected JM. Ria described their relationship as friends with mutual respect. JM is also close with Ria’s family especially with her mom, Sylvia Sanchez, JM’s co-star in Pamilya Ko.
Ria played a game called “Sagip o Di Ko Trip” inspired by her current teleserye Parasite Island. Among those she would save are good friends James Reid, Enrique Gil, Joshua Garcia and her Parasite Island leading man Rafael Rossell.
“There’s something about quiet guys,” Ria said as she talked about Paulo Avelino whom she admires as an actor and would also save in case of an apocalypse.
Ria revealed that she and Marco Gumabao have talked about marrying each other at the age of 35 just in case they are both single when that time comes. Meanwhile, Ria expressed her wish to be friends with Alden Richards.
