Hilario said he is exclusively dating a non-showbiz girl. â€œYes, oo. Inspiration. Kailangan natin ng inspirasyon at kailangan nating mag-move on,â€ Hilario said.
He added: â€œOkay naman kami ng ex-wife ko at wala naman kaming anak na kailangang isipin.â€
Hilario said heâ€™s been going out with the girl for around a month already.
â€œSiguro yung pagiging sweet sa akin. Mayroon kasi siyang factor na wala doon sa ibang naka-relasyon ko. So, parang yun lang, nahulog ako, ganoon naman ako, yung mapasaya ka at yung kumportable kayo sa isaâ€™t isa and yung parang walang problema kapag kasama mo siya,â€ he said.
Last June, Hilario said his 5-year marriage to Westgate had ended.
Hilario met Westgate while doing â€œMiss Saigon.â€ They were married on October 11, 2005 in civil rites.
He shared that differences in culture and the long distance between them contributed to the separation.
Hilario said what is important now is that he and his ex-wife are good friends.
When asked if Westgate already knows heâ€™s dating again, Hilario replied: â€œHindi pa niya alam, malayo kasi siya. Kailangan pa din malaman niya pero di pa kami nag-uusap lately, pero soon siguro malalaman niya.â€
Hilario is back as one of the judges of ABS-CBNâ€™s talent show â€œShowtime.â€
â€œYes. Thank you ang sarap talagang bumalik sa Showtime. Iba talaga ang energy ng madlang pipol, at nagpapasalamat ako at mainit pa din ang pagtanggap sa akin, ng show at ng hosts,â€ he said.
â€œTalagang kapag nasa Showtime ka eh gagawin mo lahat, kahit delekado ang tambling, gagawin mo para makapagpasaya ng tao. Na-miss talaga nila ang Sampol King,â€ he added.
Hilario, who used to be with the Streetboys, has performed in movies â€œMuro Ami,â€ â€œDâ€™ Anothersâ€, and â€œDekada â€˜70.â€ He also played Gary in the TV remake of â€œMara Clara.â€
Hilario said he is preparing for a new series. (MNS) â–
