Beauty queen-actress Herlene Budol responded to ongoing pregnancy rumors following her alleged private conversations with Kapuso hunk actor Rob Gomez circulated online.
Netizens were abuzz after a series of screenshots were uploaded to Rob’s Instagram account detailing his alleged private exchanges with his former co-stars in the Kapuso series Magandang Dilag, Herlene Budol and Bianca Manalo.
According to the screenshots, Herlene and Rob would talk every night which included “suggestive” and “flirtatious” remarks. There were also instances when they supposedly met in person.
One of the conversations showed a shocking revelation involving a photo of two pregnancy tests where Herlene was directly mentioned.
On her official X account, the Magandang Dilag lead star wrote a cryptic post questioning why she was being “dragged”.
It read, “Bakit ako nakaladkad?”
In a separate post, she went on to address allegations of her pregnancy.
“Showbiz nga talaga! Pag dedicated ka sa trabaho. gagawan ka ng issue!,” Budol wrote.
Netizens, however, countered Herlene’s statements with remarks criticizing her alleged interactions with Rob, who had been previously vocal about rekindling his relationship with the mother of his child, ex-beauty queen Shaila Rebortera, and their daughter Amelia.
“Ayun lang. Naglilinis na agad ng kalat 🤣,” an X user reacted.
“Teh ‘di ka nakaladkad😭 sadyang involved ka lang kusa kang nagpakaladkad the moment pumatol ka sa may asawa/gf kaya wag ka na pa-victim dyan,” a netizen said.
“Chusera ka teh! Ikaw ang nagkaladkad sa sarili mo sa putikan hahaha. Deserve mo yan teh! Pa victim ka pa, eh ung asawa ang kawawa sa inyo. Che!,” wrote another.
“Patay malisya acting. Charotte!,” one user quipped.
Meanwhile, Rob and Bianca have yet to issue their statements on the issue, as of writing.
