MANILA – Alex Gonzaga said her recent visit inside the “Pinoy Big Brother” house serves as a closure after her 49-day stint inside the famous yellow house.

In an interview with her sister Toni on “The Buzz” on Sunday, Alex said her visit to the "PBB" house last week made her realize that she was really no longer part of the reality show, especially when she was welcomed by "Elevator girl" Cheridel Alejandrino.

“Nung pumasok ako, parang na-realize ko na [tapos na]. Kasi nung pumasok ako, ang unang sumalubong sa akin si Cheridel. Tapos na-realize ko ay hindi ko siya kilala, hindi ko siya housemate, so parang bagong mukha na. So napunta na kaagad sa utak ko na hindi na ako doon nakatira,” she said.

Alex said she just really needed that moment to realize that she is now back in the real world.

“Nung pagpasok ko doon, feeling ko hindi na 'yun 'yung dati kasi hindi ko na alam ang ginagawa nila. Kailangan ko lang siguro ng ganung moment para lang ma-realize ko na hindi na ako part. Kasi 'yung one week na wala ako, feeling ko housemate pa din ako,” she said.

One week after she left the “PBB” house, Alex said she is now ready to go back to work again.

Aside from “The Voice Kids,” Alex will also star in the Filipino adaptation of the Korean series “Pure Love” which will air next month.

“Filipino adaptation siya tapos ang ginawa namin, 'yung feel niya is Korean feel pa din. Para sa mga tao na hindi pa napanood yung original Korean na teleserye, gets na gets niyo pa rin. Hindi namin siya masyadong nilayo,” she explained.

Asked about her role in the show, Alex said: “Ako dito si Diane Santos. 'Yung character ko 'yung na-comatose tapos kailangan ko ng tatlong pure love tears para makabalik ako sa katawan ko. Sa journey na 'yun, mare-realize ko na ang daming nangyayari, ang daming nanloko.”

The SBS series, which originally aired in South Korea as "49 Days" in May 2011, aired the same year on ABS-CBN.

It also features John Arcilla, Sunshine Cruz, Arjo Atayde, Yam Concepcion and Joseph Marco.
