GETTING CLOSER. Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza
In fact, the tandem is getting much stronger as Alden and Maine are getting much closer to each other.
This shaped up after Alden, 25, whose real name is Richard Reyes Faulkerson, Jr. and whose grandfather is an American citizen, and Maine, 22, whose real name is Nicomaine Dei Capili Mendoza, travelled to the United States recently.
Showbiz authority Mario Bautista wrote on the duo in his latest column.
In the column, it was reported that fans of Alden and Maine are reportedly up in arms with the rumor that their show “Destined to be Yours”, will run for only one season on GMA Network, their home studio where they shot to prominence.
Reports also stated that the show will have no extension.
It was gathered that some fans even wrote to GMA management protesting the alleged no-extension of the show.
At the same time, many fans also wrote GMA-7 management requesting that the show be extended so they can still watch their idols on primetime for a longer period of time.
Mario Bautista had no comment on the fans’ request but he exuded with hopes, like other fans, that the Kapuso network will give in and grant their request.
The duo thanked all their fans abroad for making their concerts in the East and West Coast big, big hits.
It was gathered that immediately they started taping new episodes for “Destined to Be Yours” and folks say it’s very obvious that their trip abroad helped in making them feel close to each other.
