On March 20, Hope Elizabeth ‘Liza’ Soberano voiced her belief that her loveteam with Enrique Gil (LizQuen) didn’t achieve much compared to the number one love team.
In her exclusive interview with Boy Abunda, she expressed her fears about her love team with Gil possibly ending at that time.
“I did not want the love team to end because it was my comfort zone, and at that time, I thought me and Quen haven’t achieved much compared to the number one love team.”
Netizens voiced mixed reactions on social media after the interview.
Some chided Soberano, implying that she was envious of other love teams.
The real question is why Liza is even thinking about the number loveteam. Low comprehension na naman daw kimenes lol but it’s crystal clear the inggit and bothered attitude nya na Kathryn had HLG and the number 1 loveteam altogether. Hilong hilo mga tao kay ateng.😅

This lady is digging her own grave in the movie industry. Somebody should tell her to stop na.

Others defended Soberano, urging netizens to try and understand her message or what she was trying to convey to her fans.
I think she's just relaying to TBA how she looked at LT before in order to justify why she changed her outlook today abt artists being caged in a LT,People change as they grow old and it is happening to her ,she's in a new mgnt with execs who are adopting different culture
