Jericho Opens Up, Names Current Girlfriend

MANILA, Philippines - Tired of playing guessing game with the media, Jericho Rosales finally opened up and admitted that he now shares a romantic relationship with lifestyle show host-model Kim Jones.

Jones, an Australian, is a roving reporter for "Etcetera," airing on ETC.

Speaking on "The Buzz," March 4, the "Dahil Sa Pag-Ibig" actor recalled how he met Jones.

According to Jericho, he met his lady love through Dominic Ochoa's wife Denise Go, a make-up artist and common friend.

He described their first meeting. "Natameme ako, parang hindi ko alam kung ano ang gagawin ko. Nakita ko nga agad na ang ganda ng mata [niya]," Jericho said remembering that Jones, upon seeing him, confessed that she was a big fan of the actor.

It was like "love at first sight" for Jericho because "yung vibe [niya] kaagad [ang napansin ko], 'yung aura niya. Napi-feel ko agad ang aura ng isang tao, eh."

Though he was drawn to the model's personality, Jericho shared, "Nahirapan lang ako dati kasi ang accent ang kapal-kapal talaga, Australian accent talaga. Hindi ko maintindihan."

Jericho revealed that he didn't pursue Jones right away and that they had a wonderful friendship, which eventually blossomed to love. "Kasi medyo hindi naman girlfriend ang hanap ko no'n. I was looking for siguro mas makabuluhang pakikipagrelasyon. May mga tinatanggal pa ako sa sarili ko nun, eh," he explained.

The actor hopes that his present love will last. "In every relationship na nagkaroon ako, I try my best always. When you're in a relationship, you always hope for the best. Expect the worst, hope for the best para at least prepared ka and I'm really happy right now," Jericho added.

Meanwhile, Jericho's former girlfriend, Cesca Litton, herself a TV host, chose to be civil when asked to comment about her ex-boyfriend's current girl.

"I haven't talked to him in a while... Actually, when we broke up naman, we were friends. Siyempre, he has his own life now, I have mine," she told PEP in an interview.

Cesca admitted she knows Jones but "I haven't met her yet. Ang alam ko, host siya, di ba?"
