Valdez revealed that they have been friends for years, dating back to when she was still playing for the Ateneo Blue Eagles.

"Since UAAP days, kasi Kathryn has [been] very supportive talaga. She's been messaging me, watching games din talaga," she said after the match on Thursday.

"Luckily, nagkakatugma rin kami ng schedules so nagkikita-kita rin. Even off cam nag-i-invite din si Kathryn. I try to invite her also kapag may free time siya. So ganoon lang," she added.

On Thursday, the Cool Smashers pulled off a crucial win over sister team Choco Mucho Flying Titans as both teams now carry an identical 8-2 win-loss record in the PVL All-Filipino Conference.

  

While more than 17,000 fans flocked to the Smart Araneta Coliseum to watch the mega showdown between the two popular teams, fans--and even reporters--were curious if Bernardo would show up to the games one of these days.

"Oh no, let's see, let's see. No pressure Kathryn," said Valdez.

"But I think she really wants to watch the games and support the team din talaga. She's very updated. Hopefully we can see her soon," she added.

In a society where thriving women are pitted against each other, Valdez and Bernardo prove that two queens can be friends. Queen supporting queen.
