Actress-host Kim Chiu liked 5 posts from Gerald Anderson’s Instagram and in a candid moment on live TV, accidentally name-dropped Julia Barretto while going through the photos.
This was part of her punishment during the Mas’ Testing segment of It’s Showtime.
After Kim gave wrong answers in the segment, her “FUNishment” was that she had to log in to her Instagram account and then like the 20th up to 24th posts of her ex-boyfriend Gerald’s IG account including one of his shirtless photos.
She made a disclaimer to current boyfriend Xian Lim about this just being a game.
“Hi, Xi! Nanonood ka ngayon. This is just a game! Xi, alam mo naman ang totoo,” said Kim.
Then, on the 21st post, Kim accidentally mentioned Julia while liking a trailer of A Soldier’s Heart, which garnered shocked reactions from the hosts Vice Ganda, Jhong Hilario Vhong Navarro, and staff of the noontime show.
“Hay Nako. Tapos pag bukas mo dito, nandito si Julia Barretto,” said Kim during FUNishment portion of Mas Testing.
“Ay Bawal Ba?” Kim added.
Kim immediately realized what she said on live TV and gestured a “peace sign” acknowledging her slip-up and said “Ay si Bea Alonzo Pala!”,

PBB Alums Kim and Gerald were one of the biggest love teams from 2006 to 2010. During the years of their love team, the two got together and became a couple. Then in 2010, the two broke up after news that Gerald was allegedly courting actress Bea Alonzo.
Years later, he and Bea became a couple but they broke up reportedly because of a third party, namely Julia. Both denied the rumors.
