On Wednesday, September 1, KAMI learned that Boy Abunda released the unedited video of his exclusive interview with the Kapuso actress-host.
During the interview, LJ shared a heartbreaking conversation she had with her eldest child, Aki Reyes, her son with Kapamilya actor Paulo Avelino.
"May one time lang po na nagtanong siya sakin kung ano raw ba talaga yung dahilan, ang meaning po niya ng 'ano ba talaga yung dahilan' parang feeling niya meron pang ibang issue.

"Napakasakit po ng tanong sakin nung anak kong yun," LJ revealed, adding that she was not able to answer Aki's question on the spot as she needed time to answer it.
"Sabi ko sa anak ko na, 'Wait lang. Sasagutin kita.' Tas nag-gather ako ng sarili ko, kung ano yung sasabihin ko sa kanya, gusto ko kasi sakin manggaling yung truth," she said.
According to LJ, she told Aki that she would never lie to him and that if he has a question, she would provide the answer to it.
"Isa sa mga sinabi ko sa kanya na, 'I'm sorry for everything. I wanted a complete family for you anf Summer.' Tapos Tito Boy, cinut niya ako dun, sabi niya sakin, 'You complete us, mom.'
"Di ko po alam. Grabe po yung kirot sa puso ko, na-touch po ako sa bata, sobra, pero napaka-sweet po na bata ni Aki talaga and yun po yung pinoprotektahan ko, Tito Boy."
LJ also admitted during the interview that she has not yet unfollowed Paolo as she did not want to make any drastic changes.
"You didn't want to do anything drastic, LJ, or, sorry to ask this question, but were you hoping that somehow you guys would be okay?" Boy asked frankly.
"Hindi po, Tito Boy. As much as I really want a complete family. Yung mga nangyari po, Tito Boy, hindi ko po kakayanin na maging malapit siya sa mga anak ko. Ganun po kasakit yung nangyari.
"Ganun po kahirap. Hindi ko lang po masabi on air, in public, kung ano yung mga yun, pero hindi po kakayanin ng pusong nanay ko yung ibalik siya sa buhay ng mga bata."
