Pia Guanio admits she’s engaged to non-showbiz boyfriend
Pia Guanio on 24 Oras
(SPOT.ph) TV host Pia Guanio has admitted last night on 24 Oras that she is engaged to her non-showbiz boyfriend. While they have not yet set a date, Guanio said their families already met the past weekend. "I’m so blessed to say na nagkakasundo sila (that they are getting along) and (that) they actually like each other."
Guanio did not name her fiancé but The Philippine Star columnist Ricky Lo identified him as entrepreneur Steve Mago, her "boyfriend of barely one year." Lo added in his Funfare column yesterday that the pamamanhikan (traditional Filipino engagement) took place on Saturday in Guanio’s resthouse in Tagaytay. "The affair was so hush-hush (and rush-rush?) that those present forgot (daw!) to take pictures of Pia and Steve in their first kiss as an engaged couple."
Lo said there seems to be "a certain sadness in the eyes of Vic Sotto," Guanio’s previous boyfriend of more than seven years and one of her co-hosts in the variety show Eat Bulaga. "At times, Vic even seems to give Pia the cold-shoulder treatment" on the show, Lo said.
According to Lo, Sotto and Guanio broke up in July last year, and a few months after, Guanio supposedly started dating Mago. The engaged couple is supposedly the pair caught kissing in public last month in a photo taken by a blogger, Lo said.
