Manzano confirmed the rumours that he is indeed in a relationship with actress Picache in a text conversation with broadcaster Cheryl Cosim, aired exclusively on ONE Balita on Friday, November 19.
Cosim sent the 66-year-old actor a photo of the newscast script that romantically links the two actors, and the journalist asked, “How true?” Manzano replied, “You’re the funniest! Yes, my dear.” The broadcaster then re-confirmed the news and responded, “How true!?!” and he replied, “Opo, Ma’am Cheryl.”

In the post, the actress was seen leaning on Manzano’s shoulder as they posed for a group photo.
