MANILA, Aug 2011 (Mabuhay) â€“ She may have evaded the media for so long, but it seems beauty-queen-turned-actress Bianca Manalo is now singing a different tune when asked about her blossoming â€œfriendshipâ€ with actor John Prats.
Manalo said their relationship is getting better and she is glad about it for as long as she is not stepping on someoneâ€™s toes.
â€œWala naman po kasi ako talagang ginawang masama. Alam ni Lord, alam ni John kung ano talaga ang totoo. Wala akong inapakang tao. Bilang babae nirerespeto ko ang lahat. Siguro ngayon ganito ako kasi masaya kami, magkaibigan kami,â€ she explained.
Manalo, however, said she still respects people who may put malice on their friendship because that is their own perception.
â€œSiyempre hindi ko naman mamamandohan kung ano ang nasa isip nila. Nagbibigay lang po kami ng saya at aliw. Nasa kanila na po iyon kung paano nila tatanggapin,â€ she said.
Manalo also stressed she does not feel bad that Prats refuses to talk whenever someone wishes to interview him about them.
â€œNaniniwala ako na hindi naman kailangan magpa-interview ng isang tao kasi kung ano ang nakikita ko sa kanya live at nakikita sa buong mundo, kung ano ang nararamdaman niya, kung ano ang sinasabi niya sa akin, don ko mas naaappreciate kasi hindi siya nagpapanggap,â€ she said.
While maintaining that there is nothing romantic going on between them, Manalo admitted she got tickled pink by Pratsâ€™ sweet gestures.
â€œOo, bilang babae oo. Kasi iba on air. Ikaw ba sabihan ka na â€˜Crush na crush kita. Gusto kita. I miss you,â€™â€ she said. (MNS) â–
