Rosanna Roces wants dear friend Ai Ai back

THEIR common showbiz friends — for certain — can't wait to see erstwhile bosom buddies Ai Ai delas Alas and Rosanna Roces back in each other's oasis.

This is especially true soon after Rosanna — in a recent vlog interview by Aiko Melendez — expressed her desire to rebuild her friendship with the comedienne that had remained strained for 20 years.

Still, the show producer went right ahead promoting ours, but the producer took Ai Ai's picture down off the poster. Maybe Ai Ai thought I had a hand in it but I was totally clueless. She took it against me. But it was a case of misunderstanding,» Rosanna recounted.

Unlike many other showbiz alliances gone awry Rosanna said theirs was different as not even once did
