MANILA, Philippines - Actress-host Janice de Belen is not yet ready to date again.
In an interview on "KrisTV "on Wednesday, de Belen said she has never gone out on a date since her separation from former husband John Estrada almost five years ago.
De Belen has four children with Estrada, who's now married to former beauty queen Priscilla Meirelles.
"I'm not open to meeting anybody right now because first 'yung mga ginagawa ko ngayon, 'yung mga nagaganap ko sa buhay ko ngayon, parang feeling ko dapat nangyari dati pa. Now I'm enjoying it so much. Kasi alam ko madi-distract ako," she explained.
De Belen said she's happy with her life now, especially with her children, who all promised to support their mom if ever she falls in love again.
"If she want to be in a relationship it's fine with us coz she deserves to be happy naman," her daughter Kaila said.
"I think right now she's so happy so parang we don't need someone else to come into the picture," added Inah, the actress' eldest daughter.
Aside from her children, de Belen admitted that she's also happy to be back in the Kapamilya network, where she did the series "Budoy," that helped her to heal her broken heart.
"Parang I found myself again," she said.
"Paano ka nga ba ie-explain ito? After a broken heart it took me a while to recover. Alam mo 'yung hilong hilo ka pa. When I came back and did 'Budoy' parang na-renew 'yung positivity," she said.
"Mayroon akong thing na when you are going through something you've got to be productive para may paglalagyan ka ng energy na galit," she said.
"Sometimes you heal easily and there are times when you don't heal easily. So parang bumabalik yung positive, when good things are happening you realized that 'okay I think I'm slowly coming out of the box that I was in.''
