MANILA, Philippines - Beauty queen-turned-actress Bianca Manalo said it was actor John Prats who initiated their breakup.
In an exclusive interview on "Bandila," Manalo said she and Prats broke up two weeks ago.
She refused to give more details on the reason behind the separation but stressed that Sexbomb dancer Sunshine Garcia had nothing to do with it.
In a separate interview, Garcia stressed she and Prats have never been sweet to each other, unless it's for a sketch on the gag show "Banana Split."
"Sa natatandaan ko wala kaming picture ni John Prats na sasabihin mong sweet na hindi kaugnay sa trabaho. Siguro kung may picture man kami 'yun lang 'yung may scene (kami sa show)," Garcia said.
The dancer believes people may have misinterpreted Prats who, she said, is easy to get along with.
"Sweet si Pratty. Mahilig siyang mang-asar. Kumbaga siya 'yung taong hindi ka mahihirapang pakisamahan," she said.
Garcia also appealed to public to stop dragging her name into the controversy.
"Nahihiya ako sa kanya (Manalo) kasi hindi ko alam kung paano lumabas ang balitang ito. As in wala akong idea, kung sino, bakit ako?" she said.
"Bandila" tried to get the side of Prats but he refused to comment.
