In a text message sent to PEP.ph, actress Erich Gonzales clarified that she is not engaged.
"Thank you for watching kristv this morning! :) by the way to clear things out, I am NOT engaged... If you’ll watch the video again i said ‘Hindi ah’ and na cut po 'yung sinabi ko na marami pa akong gustong gawin (Thank you for watching KrisTV this morning! By the way, to clear things out, I am NOT engaged... If you’ll watch the video again I said ‘No.’ The part where I said that I still want to do many things was cut from the show),” the 22-year-old actress texted.
In an earlier report from PEP.ph, TV host Kris Aquino commented that Erich is wearing an engagement ring during the November 22 episode of her show, Kris TV.
While Erich actress was demonstrating how to make a cupcake, Kris’s co-host Melai Cantiveros had remarked on the young actress's homemaking skills.
“Pwede nang mag-asawa si Erich (Erich can already get married),” she said, to which Kris replied, “'E, may engagement ring na nga (She’s already wearing an engagement ring.).”
Erich, who said during the beginning of the program that she was “happy and inspired,” merely smiled in response.
An article on ABS-CBNNews.com reports that the ring was given to her by her non-showbiz boyfriend, whom she met two years ago.“I met him two years ago and then we started as friends and then 'yun, last year niya binigay ['yung ring] (he gave me the ring last year),” she said. “I'm so blessed to have him.”
