With the release of the movie “Just One Summer” by GMA films, fans of the Julie Ann San Jose-Elmo Magalona love team are surely lining up in movie theaters all over the country. The JuliElmo love team has been really caught on fire lately. Every time Julie Ann and Elmo come out together in public, men and women of all ages would really scream and shout at them. There seems to be a lot of chemistry and electricity between the two, so contagious and heartwarming.
In every interview and press conference attended by Julie Ann San Jose and Elmo Magalona, one question is always asked. Do they have any feelings for each other? Julie Ann and Elmo have been really great professionals and with regards to questions on the real score with them, the two have been kind enough to answer the media and the fans.
“We’re very close. We love working together. He/She is really wonderful to work with.”
To me, it depends. Obviously, as to how long their love team can maintain its present fame and hype with the fans. Also, if their present chemistry can be further developed.
In showbiz, if a full blown relationship is beneficial for production, of course everybody would welcome it. The producers, the fans and of course the couple as well.
Anybody recall any love teams in the past which turned into real? I can name two. Kristine Hermosa and Jericho Rosales is one, although both never admitted they became a couple. Another is Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera (Now this is really open). There are others, but I ask that readers indulge themselves on these two love teams.
What makes them comparable to the JuliElmo tandem is the fact that one part of each couple was in a relationship at the height of their love team. Jericho Rosales, while paired with Kristine Hermosa was at the time the boyfriend of former GMA star/commercial model Cindy Kurleto. The three even did a movie “Ngayong Nandito Ka”, though Cindy’s role in the movie was very limited.
Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera really became an item especially during the Philippine remake of the famous Mexican telenovela Marimar. Dingdong Dantes’ girlfriend then was Karylle, daughter of Zsa Zsa Padilla.
Jericho Rosales and Cindy Kurleto broke up, some attribute it to pressure from their showbiz management. Because fans adored Echo and Kristine so much that time, the thought of Echo being seen in public with Cindy might lead to the dismay of current and future fans, realizing their love team was only on TV. Rumor has it Echo was forbidden from seeing Cindy Kurleto in public. You could just imagine what it feels like trying to hide a relationship from the public. It seemed so unfair especially on Cindy’s part.
Dingdong Dantes and Karylle also broke up and the rumored culprit was Marian Rivera, which again nobody could or would ever confirm. Everybody since then welcomed Dong and Marian with open arms. And why not? They look good together, both on and off-screen. Nobody seemed to pay attention to the unfairness on the part of Karylle.
Julie Ann San Jose has been asked several times on the real status of Elmo Magalona. And while Julie Ann never admitted directly, the rumors have pointed out to Elmo currently in a relationship with actress Lauren Young. Elmo has also kept mum about this.
If it’s true that Elmo Magalona and Lauren Young are a couple, for how long can they keep it? As JuliElmo fans clamor for more from their beloved love team, will it eventually be Elmo and Julie Ann?
