The veteran actress approves of Rayver to become her daughter’s boyfriend.
“Mabait si Rayver. I’ve known him since he was fourteen [years old].
“Matagal ko nang kakilala ang batang ‘yan, and I’ve worked with him already. We had a show in ABSCBN, and almost every day magkasama kami niyan. So, kilala ko ‘yan.”
Lotlot and Rayver worked together in fanta-serye Spirits (2004-2005).
Does this mean she approves of Rayver to be her daughters boyfriend?
“Actually, natuwa ako, kasi kilala ko nga siya, e. And I know he’s sincere. Sincere siya kung anuman ang pakay niya. Hindi naman para bilugin pa ang ulo ko o ano. Hindi ganun, e. Sana sagutin na siya ni Janine!”
Lotlot also mentions that she will support Rayver and Janine in case their relationship becomes official.
“Oo, di ba? I mean, if that’s what Janine wants also. Siyempre, susuportahan ko ang anak ko. Diskarte na niya [Rayver] yun, e. Kumbaga, ako, dito lang.
“Pero alam ni Janine na gusto ko si Rayver for her. Alam niya na approve ako for her. But of course, in the end, that’s her decision.”
What does Rayver do to become more closer to Janine’s family?
“Napakanatural kasi nung tao, e. Wala naman siyang ere, e. What you see is what you get, e. So, yun pa lang, natutuwa na ako sa kanya. And he gets along well with all the kids, so nagkakaroon din sila ng mga bonding if they go out. They spent time together, so napapalapit na talaga siya sa family.”
Is there any hint from Janine?
“Hindi ko alam, e. You know, there’s nothing wrong if she also takes her time, lalo na ngayon na tuluy-tuloy ang mga ganap niya, marami siyang trabaho. But, of course, hindi rin masama kung magkakaroon siya ng inspirasyon, gaya ni Rayver.
“Pero, at the end of the day, it boils down to her decision. Whatever she decides, nandito lang kami to support her decision.”

“AAMIN AKO, mahirap akong maging girlfriend,” says 2015 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach on her current beau.
Pia feels lucky to be in a relationship with Filipino-Swiss racer Marlon Stockinger, who embraces not just her good qualities but even her flaws.
“Kasi selosa ako, emotional — masaya, malungkot, galit. Pero siya, sobrang cool lang niya. Kayang-kaya niya yung energy ko. And alam niya na kung anuman mangyari, kilala niya yung real na Pia.”
Pia went on to say how Marlon helped her overcome her struggles, which includes passing on her Miss Universe crown last month.
“Kasi nakilala niya ako, Miss Universe ako. Andun naman siya nung nagpasa na ako ng crown. Tapos ngayon, I’m trying to find my own path again.
“Andun siya sa mga important moments talaga, so thank you. For all the ups and downs, you’re still there. But now, it’s mostly ups na lang. Tawanan na lang. Ganyan.”
According to Pia, Marlon is a good listener.
She added, “Thank you for never saying that my problems are shallow.”
“Never saying na, ‘Mga problema mo, kaya mo na ‘yan.’ Hindi niya dyina-judge yung feelings ko. Pag masama loob ko, talagang iintindihin niya kung bakit.”
On the other hand, Marlon considers Pia as his best friend.
“Every day, kahit anong oras, I can always call her, talk to her. I’m just proud to have someone who has found herself as well as Pia. I’m really glad I found my best friend as well.”
Marlon also said that he did not fall for Pia, the beauty queen, but with her “relaxed, super funny, and down-to-earth” personality.
In the course of 2017, Pia and Marlon’s relationship was put to the test when news came out that Marlon has twin daughters with former modelgirlfriend Kit Barraquias.
But in March 30, Kit confirmed that she has two seven-year-old daughters with Marlon, but that he has never seen them since birth.
Three weeks before the news came out with the report, Pia was asked about Marlon’s rumored twins but the beauty queen said she “doesn’t know anything” about it.
At the height of the controversy, netizens noted that Pia and Marlon unfollowed and followed each other again on Instagram.
Contrary to speculations that they have broken up, the two were seen together when Marlon celebrated his 26th birthday on April 4.
