TV5 star Shaira Mae dela Cruz admits to have been surprised over TV5 management’s decision to break up her onscreen partnership with Mark Neumann.

“Nagulat po ako at nalungkot,” she said.

Shaira and Mark have been working together constantly for some time now, starting with their appearance on the Filipino adaptation of theKorean series, “Baker King.”

They were subsequently paired in several episodes of “Wattpad Presents” including “Mister Popular Meets Miss Nobody,” “Mister Popular Meets Miss Nobody: Still In Love,” and “I’m In Love With A DotA Player,” incidentally, among the highest-rating episodes of the show.

In any case, Shaira is moving on. She hopes for Mark to continue finding success in his career.

“Happy naman ako for him,” she said.

Dubbed as TV5’s Kilig Prince and Princess, Shaira and Mark were discovered on the talent and reality show “Artista Academy” in 2012.

On the brighter side of things, Shaira is on cloud nine over her endorsement deal with Caronia nail polish.

“This is a first (for me) so I’m very happy,” she said. “Sana marami pa sumunod.” (MNS)
