Actor John Prats has finally broken his silence regarding his recent break-up with beauty queen Bianca Manalo.
Prats said he is also going through a rough patch but he chooses not to show it â€“ especially on TV â€“ because he does not want his work to get affected.
â€œMahirap talaga pero ganun talaga. Sometimes you have to separate your personal life, lalo na sa trabaho ko kasi hindi naman ako pwedeng maglungkot-lungkutan at mag-emote-emote-an sa â€˜Banana Splitâ€™ kasi mukha naman akong sira ulo. But siguro dahil na rin sa surroundings ko, sa staff [na] light kasama at siguro ganito lang talaga ako as a person, positive lang ako,â€ he said.
But Prats admitted that there are still times when he canâ€™t help but think about it and just feel sad.
â€œMay mga moments lang na minsan magsi-sink in lang sa â€˜yo and thatâ€™s part of it, eh. Part naman â€˜yun ng process and then eventually happy na,â€ he said.
â€œSiyempre nakakalungkot na ganun ang mga nangyayari and siguro totoo ang sinabi ni Miss Kris (Aquino), kapag blessed ka sa isang bagay, sometimes hindi lang talaga nagwo-work and sa isang bagay,â€ he added.
Despite what happened, Prats still hopes that things will soon be okay. He also wishes Manalo well.
â€œIâ€™m hoping na for our happiness, of course happiness din naman niya ang wini-wish ko [kay Bianca], iyon lang. Sana maging okay lang ang lahat at lahat maka-move on na,â€ he said.
For now, Prats is thankful that he has a lot of work that keeps him busy after the break-up.
â€œSobrang okay ako ngayon na marami akong ginagawa kasi ang focus ko nandito lang talaga. Siguro blessing na rin siguro na wala akong ibang iisipin, as in ito lang talaga,â€ he said.
The actor added that he would like to enjoy being single.
â€œKapag naglungkot-lungkutan ka, you invite negative stuff and never akong naging ganon. Sa lahat naman ng pinagdaanan ko, I tend to forgive and ang status ko ngayon, moving forward and trying to enjoy my singlehood and my work,â€ he said. (MNS)
