MANILA, Philippines – Beauty queen Bianca Manalo admitted she has yet to talk to her former boyfriend, actor John Prats following their break-up last May.
In a live interview with “The Buzz” on Sunday, Manalo said she believes she and Prats will be friends again in God’s time.

“Actually naniniwala ako na in time, magkakausap kami ulit kasi marami kaming masasayang memories together. Chine-cherish ko yun. Sino ba naman ako para forever hindi kami magpapansinan? In time magiging friends din kami,” she said.
Manalo also refused to further implicate SexBomb dancer Sunshine Garcia, saying she and Prats never really talked about Garcia when they were still together.
“Wala po talaga akong alam kasi nung kami pa ni John, never namin napag-usapan ni John, never naging issue between the two of us. It’s not my story to tell siguro pero hindi ko talaga alam,” she said.
Meanwhile, Manalo said she is truly happy to spend more time with her family – something she said she was not able to do when she was still in a relationship.
“I am very happy now kasi ngayon ko na-appreciate 'yung enjoying my own company, enjoying my me time, 'yung ako lang. I get to know more people, I spend time more with my family,” she said.
Manalo said not being in a relationship also brought her closer to her siblings.
“Ngayon sobrang naging close kami ng family ko. 'Yung mga sisters ko, we go out together, bonding. Every weekend, we make sure na magkukuwentuhan kami, dinner together. Ngayon ko siya naaappreciate. Sabi nga nila when you are in a relationship, maraming bagay kang hindi nagagawa. Siguro ito ngayon 'yung ako muna, enjoy-in ko muna ito, hindi ako nagde-depend sa ibang tao,” she explained.
Asked if she is now ready to fall in love again, Manalo said: “Naniniwala po ako na hindi po 'yan pinipilit. Dumarating po 'yan sa tamang panahon, sa tamang oras, sa tamang tao. Hindi pa po siguro ngayon but again, in God’s time.”
