When it comes to show business and entertainment industry, Pinoy Big Brother has become the factory of stars. It made a large contribution in producing successful talents and personalities in the line.
One of the hopeful housemates that made it big after leaving the house in the show is Karen Reyes. After the fresh off success of her television drama series entitled Asintado, Karen Reyes is currently in the status of being in a relationship.
Aforementioned, the actress has been single for five long years. She eventually broke the news by posting a photo of herself together with the Silent Sanctuary’s vocalist Raymund “Sarkie” Sarangay on Instagram according to the report by ABS-CBN last April 9.
In an interview with the 21-year old actress, she shared the reason why she finally decided to publicize her relationship with Sarkie to the world.
“Kasi nakikita ko sa Instagram ko everyone was posting for summer, for Holy Week, ganyan. Wala naiinggit lang ako, try ko kaya mag-post. Eh wala akong ibang picture kundi yun. Kasi sobrang worst Holy Week ever, worst summer ever yung nangyari sa amin nung nag-bakasyon kami kasi sobrang unplanned tapos basta panget yung napuntahan naming place and all,” she recounted during the Skechers on the Move Fashion Show held last August 8.
In addition, Karen Reyes confessed about their relationship and that Sarkie waited for her ultimate yes for half a year and she was surprised that their age gap would have a big difference.
“Wala sa itsura niya nung nagkakilala kami. So nagulat talaga ako na ganun ka-tito levels na pala siya,” the actress unveiled while chuckling. “Ganun lang yung lokohan namin. Pero kasi mabait siya. Kasi 14 years yung age gap namin so wala lang, I find it mas masaya, kasi hindi ka mamomroblema na petty things pag-aawayan ninyo. Parang it’s more of matured kayo pareho,” she further discussed.
