Marian Rivera was reportedly seen last March 13 with rumored boyfriend Model Ervic Vijandre in Temple Bar, Greenbelt Makati City.
And who is Ervic Vijandre?
In an exclusive cover story of YES! magazine in their January 2008 issue, Marian admits that, before making it in show business, she had already been through three relationships. Her third boyfriend, an athlete who plays baseball for the Philippine national team, was the longest and the most serious relationship she has had so far.
"Six years kami," she smiles, without giving us the guy's name. "Ever since third year high school pa lang ako, kilala na niya ako. Hanggang nag-college ako, siya �yong boyfriend ko."
It was last November 2007 when Anna Pingol, YES! associate editor, had an interview with Marian who admitted that she was too busy to engage herself with anyone
"Hindi na nga ako natutulog, paano pa ako magbo-boyfriend?" natatawang banggit noon ni Marian.
But when asked if there's a good candidate for Mr. Love-me-for-what-I-am?
"Hmmm, actually, siya," she smiles.
With a bit of mischief in her eyes, she says: "Si six years."
So, sino pa nga ba si Six Years kundi si Ervic Vijandre, a model wannabe who stands 6'1" and like Marian is a graduate of De La Salle University.
When Marian, during her launching as Karimadon endorser, asked about her lovelife, nag-beg off siya. Gusto raw niyang "may matira pang konting privacy" tungkol sa buhay niya.
That maybe the reason why when a photographer approached them for picture taking last March 13, she politely begged-off. But with the other guests, game namang makipag-picture taking si Marian.
Mga 10:30 nang pumasok sina Marian at Ervic sa Temple Bar. The affair was actually a "victory party" para kina Jennifer Barientos and Danielle Casta�o, Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2008 and first runner-up, respectively.
"Actually, magdi-dinner sila. Nang mapadaan sila Temple Bar, we invited Eric sa loob, isinama na niya si Marian," according to party host, si Jonas Gaffud ng Mercator.
Hindi agad napansin ng mga tao si Marian nang pumasok sila ni Ervin sa Temple Bar, dahil maraming magaganda�literally�at matatangkad na babae sa loob, kasama na ang tatlong Bb. Pilipinas Universe titleholders (Gionna Cabrera, Anna Theresa Licaros, and the current queen Jennifer), plus Danielle and other beauty queen wannabes and models.
But when they've learned about Marian's presence na naka-shorts with matching 4-inch-high heels, kodakan galore na.
Ewan lang kung nakapag-dinner pa sila ni Ervic sa more than an hour na nando'n sila dahil non-stop ang bumabati kay Marian sa loob at labas ng Temple Bar.
