Alfred-LJ `breakup' a gimmick?

IS it true Malaysian beauty queen-turned-actress Carrie Lee is the reason why Alfred Vargas broke up with LJ Reyes? “No. Walang kinalaman si Carrie. It’s a mutual decision on our part. Hindi naman kami nag-break. Cool off lang. We still communicate. Noong Valentine’s Day nga, magkasama kami sa dinner with my family,” explains Alfred. Some folks say this is just a gimmick to boost the promo of “Muli,” the first Filipino-Malaysian TV series co-production where Alfred stars with Carrie. “I wouldn’t use my personal life to promote a TV show. What happened was when LJ and I had a vacation in the U.S. last December, araw-araw kaming magkasama kaya we got used to seeing each other often. Then when we came home, buong January, we both got so busy. I was taping ‘Muli’ and ‘Magic Kamison’ and she’s busy with her own soap and her studies at La Salle. We don’t have time for each other at di na kami nagkikita. The funny thing is nang mag-cool off kami, we became more relaxed as friends, unlike before na may pressure na lagi kaming magkita. But we’re not closing our doors on each other naman.”Alfred feels lucky to be the leading man in “Muli”, that starts airing on Monday afternoon, right after “Daisy Siete.” He plays Lukas, a software engineer who leaves his pregnant wife (Marian Rivera) with his aunt (Odette Khan) in Manila to work in Kuala Lumpur. Little did he know that his aunt will maltreat his wife while he’s abroad. In Malaysia, he meets Cheryl (Carrie), the girlfriend of his boss (Tony Eusoff), who is being forced by her conservative Chinese family to marry a man she doesn’t love. When his boss dumps Cheryl, they fall in love with each other but fate separates them.“It’s a beautiful love story that will surely capture the interest of our viewers,” says Alfred. “I stayed in Malaysia for one and a half months to tape it with Director Mac Alejandre. It’ll be shown there in March and I have to go back there to help promote it.”Alfred is also in the cast of the movie, “Faces of Love,” that opens on February 21. “It’s fantastic working with Director Eddie Romero, who’s a National Artist. I thought dahil 82 na siya, mabagal na, pero mabilis pa rin mag-shoot and is still a brilliant filmmaker. I play a private detective hired by Christopher de Leon to search for his mysterious admirer who writes him love letters. I meet his niece, Juliana Palermo, at lagi ka-ming nag-aaway but, in the end, we fall in love. Working with Christopher de Leon, one of our best actors, is also a great privilege for me as I really admire his work.”
