MANILA, Philippines – “TV Patrol” news anchor Korina Sanchez was taken aback when asked about rumors that romantically link her to news anchor Ted Failon.

“OMG. Hindi po. Best friends lang talaga kami forever,” Sanchez responded, laughing, in the “Tanong All You Can” segment of “Showbiz News Ngayon (SNN)” on July 14.

“Kasi noong nakilala ko si Ted, may asawa na siya. So hindi talaga kami nagkakatugma dahil noong siya naman ang nagbinata na ulit, may asawa na ako. Talagang hindi pinagtatagpo ng tadhana,” she further explained in jest.

Sanchez and Failon’s friendship dates back to 1995, when they hosted the public service program “Hoy Gising!” together with newscaster Henry Omaga-Diaz.

Meanwhile, with the string of rumors pertaining to her husband, Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) Secretary Mar Roxas, and their allegedly collapsing marriage, Sanchez likewise had to answer queries about what she deems the most trying thing in this very public relationship.

“The worst things have been said about me, have been said about Mar and our family. Ang pinakaimportante kasi, una alam mo kung sino ka, alam mo kung ano ang paninindigan mo, alam mo na wala kang sinasaktang tao. “Importante na mayroon kang support system tulad ng isang nagmamahal sa ‘yong asawa or pamilya,” she pointed out, somehow indirectly expressing why she remains unfazed in the midst of all the issues.

In an interview for the same show a few days earlier, the “Rated K” host addressed the intrigues that's been plaguing her two-year married life recently.

“Hanggang ngayon?” she laughed when the issue about their supposed split-up was broached. “Sabi ko nga, ‘Diyos ko talaga itong mga tsismosang inggiterang ito,’… Kung hindi kami nakikita, hiwalay na daw kami. Nung nakita na kami, nagpapanggap lang daw kami. Sabi ko, ‘Ibang klase ito, hindi na tsismis ito, kampanya na ito ng paninira.’ Alam na alam mo eh.”

The feisty news anchor also shrugged off rumors that her husband has found another love.

“Mar is a very strong and a very admirable person. Kahit na ano’ng paninira ang gawin nila sa asawa ko, sorry, one-woman man siya,” said Sanchez.

Despite all the intrigues, Sanchez has made apparent one wish: Adding a new member to their family.

“I think it’s going to take some work, maybe even a miracle. But we’re looking forward to it. Hopefully it’s going to happen soon. Girl or boy? Any,” she added in the July 15 "SNN” report.
