Karylle takes pride in her achievements this year and shares some tidbits about her love life.
People have taken notice how Karylle is looking more radiant and inspired nowadays. But when asked if she has found someone special to her, the 28-year-old actress shared that she’s still taking it easy when it comes to matters of the heart. “Okay naman ako. I am still single. May mga tao na malapit sa puso ko pero I am just getting to know people. Minsan may mga medyo nagugustuhan ako pero hindi naman talaga [natutuloy sa commitment or anything].” It’s not that she has grown wary of falling in love and getting hurt in the end but Karylle simply has other priorities in mind right now. “Siguro only time will tell especially now that I am trying to focus on my work,” she added.
The singer/actress was once romantically linked with Jericho Rosales whom she first worked with in I Love Betty La Fea followed by Dahil May Isang Ikaw (DMII). As to whether or not their relationship could develop into something romantic, Karylle replied, “Hindi ko alam. Parang wala. But we still go out,” she replied. When prodded about the other guys she’s dating right now, Karylle merely laughed and refused to elaborate about it. “Secret! Pero marami naman akong kaibigan, yung iba showbiz, yung iba hindi showbiz. Medyo dating ako ngayon, pero hindi ko ma-explain e. Hindi ko kasi masyadong nabibigyan ng panahon. Minsan nagkakataon lang na lumalabas ka pero hindi rin naman sadya, yung ganon.”
More than her love life, however, Karylle stressed that she’s really grateful for all the blessings she received this year. At the top of her list was the fact that she was able to improve her acting in dramas through her projects on ABS-CBN. “I am very, very happy with my showbiz career. Hindi ako pinabayaan ng ABS-CBN at napakaganda ng ginawa nila para sa akin kaya super thankful ako.” Even her mom ZsaZsa Padilla has given her words of praise for her performance in DMII. “I remember one time, I forced mom to watch one of the crucial episodes. Tapos tawag siya right after sabi niya ‘I’m so proud of you.’ Siyempre it’s always good to know that your parents approve of what you do. Mas nakaka-inspire na gawin mo yung best mo,” she related.
But for now, Karylle is looking forward to going back to the concert scene since she had spent most of her time acting these past few months. “Mami-miss ko yung soap pero nakaka-miss rin yung pagkanta. Actually nung ginawa ko yung DMII maraming concerts na hindi ko nagawa. Like, inaasam ko talaga mag-concert abroad. In February, I’m going to have my first US concert tour with Christian (Bautista) so I am excited. I’ll take advantage of this opportunity to promote my album lalo na nag-gold na siya. Basta yun, I am very happy na makakapag-show na ako. And hopefully may iba pang dumating na good projects next year,” she beamed.
