- Rumor has it that former reel-to-real couple Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson will reunite in ABS-CBN's upcoming teleserye 'Because You Love Me'
- Chiu, who is currently one of 'It's Showtime!' hosts, denied her participation in the Dan Villegas-directed series
- Kimerald, the name of their tandem, was one of the network's most bankable love teams since they came out of the Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) house
A rumor remains such when it is not confirmed or if one of the persons involved in it denies his or her involvement in it.
Kim Chiu dismissed the rumor about her getting back with her ex - both onscreen and offscreen - for a new teleserye.

Last week, it has been reported that she and Gerald Anderson will star in ABS-CBN's upcoming soap 'Because You Love Me'. The supposed lead actress, Yen Santos, was said to be replaced so that the latest 'It's Showtime' host can take over.
However, Kim said that she is not aware of her involvement in Dan Villegas' latest project.
"Hindi ko nga po alam kung saan galing ‘yon eh. Kung sinu-sino na lang po, bina-bash na lang ako. Pero wala pa pong ganun," she told reporters when she attended the EdukCircle Award during the weekend.
(I don't know where that came from. Everyone still continues to bash me. But really, there is no such thing.)
Aside from denying her involvement in 'Because You Love Me', she added that her latest stint as a 'Showtime' host is only temporary.
"Natutuwa din ako mag-'Showtime.' Hindi naman ako [mainstay] doon. Pang dagdag lang habang wala pa 'yung totoong host talaga. Natutuwa naman ako."

(I'm having fun doing 'Showtime'. I'm not a mainstay there. I'm just an additional member until the real host returns. I really find it fun.)
It has been a week since she joined the noontime show's medley of hosts, where one of her notable appearances was playing 'Pak Ganern' with Vice Ganda and Sarah Geronimo.
Kim has also expressed that hosting 'Showtime' reveals the lighter side of her personality, where she is drama-free and can be laid-back.
"Walang script so sorry medyo tatanga-tanga din minsan. Pero natatawa naman sila. Sabi ko my gosh napaghahalataan 'yung totoong IQ ko. Wala namang taong perfect. At least napapatawa ko sila, napapasaya ko sila."
(There is no script so I'm sorry that I can be a bit dumb. But they find it funny. I said, oh my, my real IQ is showing. Nobody's perfect. At least I can make them laugh, make them happy.)
While she is at a high joining Vice Ganda, Vhong Navarro, Anne Curtis and the rest of the noontime show's hosts, she said she does not mind if she becomes a mainstay in the program.

"Siyempre oo pero gusto ko talaga umarte. Number one talaga 'yung acting, second 'yung hosting, dancing tapos last 'yung singing," she said.
(Of course I want to but I really want to act. Number one is really acting, second is hosting, dancing and then lastly singing.)
Kim and her new onscreen partner, Xian Lim, have not confirmed the real status of their relationship although they show that they are both into each other's company. They were recently spotted watching a movie together.
However, her ex - Gerald Anderson - has been seen hanging out with his former girlfriend, actress Bea Alonzo. The two had a short-lived whirlwind romance but the latest photos of the two are proof that they might have another chance in love.
If that is the case, then why not revive one of the network's most bankable love teams like Kimerald?
We have not heard of Gerald's side yet as well as the management so we wait with bated breath if the two Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) alumni will reunite for a new teleserye.
