The first time that I heard about the Gerald Anderson-Bea Alonzo issue, I couldn't believe it or I was just in denial. As days or hours go by, it seems as if all roads and clues are leading towards that path, which will eventually point to the fact that Kimerald has only been for reel all along.
Thursday, when one of the founding members of Kimerald BAOs shared that she believes that the issue about Gerald and Bea was true, ABS-CBN immediately announced via one of Star Cinema's bosses, Roxy Liquigan, that the two, Kim and Gerald, will soon have a movie. This may only be mere coincidence, but no one can tell until somebody who really knows about the issue comes out in the open.
Most of the BAOs members have given up on the two and they are now more endeared towards Kim. The biggest and strongest fan group of the two, the Kimerald World, it seems, has also recently changed its name to Kim World. This is a very strong statement and the group must have vital reasons why they opted to do so.
With all the confusion and madness that is happening at the cyber tambayans of these fan groups, there seems to be a news black out about the issue. First off, E-Live, which showed teasers that it will feature Bea and the new man in her life, did not push through with the story. According to some sources (from the mentioned fan groups), the relationship was known to Talent Center. Kim was used to be silent about everything and to continue the act that she's still happy with Gerald. This is yet to be confirmed or denied, but as long as nobody's talking about the issue, the public is free to speculate.
The confusion started after Kim guested on The Buzz and she was asked by Boy Abunda if she loves Gerald. The usual bubbly actress smiled her best and said yes because she considers him special. Boy Abunda immediately followed the question with, "Sa tingin mo, mahal ka ba ni Gerald?" Kim almost choked at the question and from then on, couldn't stop her tears. She tried to stay true with her script and that was to act as if nothing was wrong. Her eyes though, revealed that she was hurt and that she was undergoing something that the public must not know (or else she will lose her job?).
The story will continue and maybe ABS-CBN will try to keep mum about it or link Kim to other artists so that she will also get some hatred that is expected to be thrown at Bea and Gerald. Whatever the truth is, Kim Chiu will get the sympathy of most people.
Bea will get tagged as "Mang-aagaw." Anybody in her position will get the same treatment and that is only expected as the loveteam of Kim and Gerald is still at its peak. Her fans must stay away from reading online discussions (and blogs like this) about their favorite actress at the moment. Kimerald fans are still hurting and they can say anything and everything, especially on unmediated public forums. If ever this is true though, I don't think that she can be happy with where she's at knowing that someone has been badly hurt and is still hurting.
Gerald needs to face the public and say the truth from his heart and not from the script that will be handed to him by ABS CBN. He must stop his pretensions pronto. He has used Kim for so long already. He must come out as he is, a player, and see if the public is still willing to take him in despite such flaw. He must learn something from John Lloyd Cruz and Jericho Rosales. The latter apologized to Kristine Hermosa after admitting the truth about his relationship with Cindy Kurleto at the height of loveteam's success. John Lloyd risked telling the truth about Shaina Magdayao, hoping that his girl would be spared from the public's anger.
It will take time before Gerald can recover from this blunder, but this is the hard truth that he has to accept for hurting one, if not the most loved, bubbly Chinita young sweetheart that has ever graced local showbiz, and that is Kim Chiu.

Hurting is a process and even though I was affected by this news (kaloka!), I am starting to move on or I already have. First, I no longer watch Magkaribal or anything that has Bea on it nor I can take buying any products that she's endorsing. Bitter much? Well, this is part of the process hehe!
Second, I seldom visit the online discussions about the Kimerald because I can't take how they are bashing Gerald now. Most fans are saying things that they surely won't divulge if none of these issues ever happened. No matter who Gerald is off cam, the more important thing is that he is able to deliver on cam. What I want from him is to be truthful, especially to his fans. He must not act sweet and lovey dovey to Kim or keep his silence about the issue just to save his ass. He must quit using very sweet words towards Kim on cam, especially if he doesn't really mean it. Through this, he will be able to help his fans and also Kim to move on.
Somebody must still speak up about the issue and they must not let only one person suffer from all these. As of the moment, Kim Chiu seems to be getting all the negative publicity. Aside from being linked with just about anyone, like Enchong Dee, Robi Domingo and Coco Martin, she was also being intrigued that she tried to commit suicide. Here's PEP's full story about the made-up intrigue (I don't think Kim is capable of doing that).
These issues can be denied or confirmed very quick rather than opting to spread lies and related intrigues. Earlier on, after a website claimed that Kris Aquino is pregnant, TV Patrol has done the necessary interviews from the people involved or those who are close to them to dispute such false claim. If this can be done to Kris, why can't they do it to Kim as well? Even if she doesn't have the Republic's President as a brother, she still is a Kapamilya. Is ABS-CBN protecting Bea Alonzo, especially because she has an upcoming movie? Just asking...
