A month after he announced his separation from his wife, Jhong Hilario is moving on and hoping to find a new love.
Jhong Hilario revealed that he has been exclusively dating a non-showbiz girl for a month now. Despite his busy showbiz career, he said that he makes time for the new apple of his eye. “Sa
love ‘pag mahal mo ang isang tao, hahanapan mo naman ng oras ‘yan
,” explained the actor-dancer. “Kung importante siya sa ‘yo hahanapan mo ng oras, kahit na wala kang tulog, kahit na marami kang ginagawa kasi mahal mo ‘yung tao.
When Push.com.ph asked Jhong what he finds special about his new “inspiration,” he replied, “Siguro ‘yung pagiging
sweet sa akin
and mayroon kasi siyang
factor na wala dun sa ibang nakarelasyon ko
, so parang nahulog ako. Ganun naman ako, hinahanap ko sa babae ‘yung mapasaya ka, ‘yung komportable kayo sa isa’t-isa and walang problema ‘pag kasama mo siya. Kailangan natin ng inspirasyon, kailangan nating mag
-move on,” he related.
More than a month ago, Jhong confirmed that he and his British wife, Michelle Westgate, had separated because of cultural differences and of the long distance but added quickly that they are on good terms. “Okay naman kami ng
ex-wife ko, wala naman kaming anak na kailangang
],” he explained.
Last Monday, August 1, Jhong returned to Showtime
as one of the judges, a post he had left last year to concentrate on his then teleserye, Mara Clara
. “Iba talaga ang
energy ng madlang
people and nagpapasalamat pa rin ako kasi mainit pa rin ang pagtanggap nila sa akin, mainit pa rin ang pagtanggap ng mga
host sa akin
and talagang ‘pag nasa Showtime ka gagawin mo lahat kahit delikado ‘yung mga
tumbling, gagawin mo para makapagpasaya ng mga tao
For the meantime, Jhong said that he will remain as a Showtime
judge while his next teleserye
project is still on the works. “Kasi ‘yung
soap opera na gagawin ko medyo matatagalan pa. Inaayos pa ‘yung
script.” He continued though that he is not a resident judge so the length of his stay in the show largely depends on the viewers’ text votes. “Kung talagang ayaw na tayo ng tao, ivo
-vote out na talaga tayo
But he remains optimistic that he will stay for a long time because up to now, many of his followers still request that he return to the talent-search show. “Sa
Facebook nakikita ko na maraming nakaka
-miss sa akin. Maraming nagre
-request sa akin na bumalik na ako at nami-
miss talaga nila ako.
