MANILA — For the first time in 10 years, Bea Alonzo walked the ABS-CBN Ball red carpet by herself — and she finds the experience “empowering.”
Alonzo, who recently weathered the controversy surrounding her breakup with fellow actor Gerald Anderson, her boyfriend of three years, had been attending the ABS-CBN Ball and its predecessor the Star Magic Ball with dates.
She would arrive with Anderson in recent years, and prior to him, another past boyfriend and fellow Star Magic artist, Zanjoe Marudo.
Speaking with reporters before her red-carpet entrance, Alonzo said: “After 10 years, almost 10 years, ngayon lang ulit ako naglakad mag-isa. It’s actually empowering, it’s liberating, and I’m enjoying it.”
Asked how she is coping after her high-profile split with Anderson, Alonzo only had a few, but positive words.
“I’m recovering, I’m getting better,” she said.
