MANILA, Philippines – After her seven-year relationship with a non-showbiz personality resulted in failure, actress-host Bianca Manalo believes that quality is more important than quantity when it comes to love.
Manalo, who is now in a relationship with actor John Prats, made the statement in an interview on “Kris TV” on Tuesday.
“Seven years. Parang nagkaroon ng maraming differences na siguro hindi pwede hindi pa ito ‘yon. Ngayon naniniwala na ako na it's not the quantity it's the quality,” Manalo said, referring to her previous relationship.
She then talked about her “quality” relationship with Prats, who was her co-host in defunct noontime show “Happy Yipee Yehey.” “Sobra yung effort. Nakikita ko ang effort niya. Kasi after ng segment niya sa noontime, before pwede na siyang umuwi na pero ang ginagawa niya babalik siya sa studio para lang mag-‘hi.’”
With both of them in showbiz, Manalo said they try to keep details of their relationship private, including the date of their anniversary.
"Secret namin 'yon, ayaw niya [sabihin ang anniversary namin]. Hindi ko alam, basta ang sabi niya gusto niya ‘yun ‘yung one thing sa amin lang bilang alam ng lahat ‘yung pinagdaanan namin. So, gusto niya ‘yun man lang sa amin lang,” she said.
Manalo added that she is happy that she is getting along well with Prats’s family, and vice versa.
