Are Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza of the popular "AlDub" team now a couple?


Many fans are asking the question especially after they were shown kissing lips to lips in one of their episodes on "Eat Bulaga."


The speculation turned hotter as Alden and Maine spent a Sunday in Boracay with close friends and staffers from “Eat Bulaga.”


It was gathered they were taken there by a private plane rented by Alden for Maine and stayed there for only a day.


Their fans are now asking if it is true that they are officially on, especially after they were shown kissing lips to lips in “Eat Bulaga” recently, wrote Mario Bautista in his latest column.


A lot of their fans found it “so nakakakilig.”  But there is a downside to it - their haters found a chance to bash them saying “hindi pang Anak TV Seal ang kissing scene nila dahil hindi wholesome and against traditional Filipino culture,” the columnist wrote.


According to the columnist, Maine herself answered them: “Para sa nagpapabagsak sa amin, sa mga naninira, ang message ko lang inyo ay God bless. Alam niyo naman na walang magandang maidu­dulot ang mga ginagawa niyo pero ginagawa niyo pa rin. Sana, imbes na maghanap kayo ng mali sa amin, ng kapintasan sa amin, sana ay humarap muna kayo sa salamin kasi hindi tayo pare-parehong perpekto."


Maine added : "Ngayon lang ako magsasalita. Hindi ako Diyos. Pero, sigurado ako at sinasabi ko sa inyo, ‘yung ginagawa niyong hindi maganda sa kapwa. Babalik din ito sa inyo.”


Alden supported Maine on this, according to Mario Bautista who quoted Alden saying he understands where she’s coming from. “Kasi lately, sobra talaga ang pamba-bash sa amin, so naiintindihan ko kung bakit nag-react siya nang ganun,” he said.


Has Mario Bautista an advice for them? "We think they should just ignore their bashers," he wrote.


"The fact remains that “Eat Bulaga” remains to be a toprater and, as of now, they’re still the most sought after endorsers, with Alden earning P5 million per endorsement and Maine, P1.5 million," he added. "It’s estimated that they have already earned some P200 million between them since they rose to fame as a love team in July of last year," he said.
