In a recent interview, John Prats was asked about friend Sam Milby’s effort to seek his approval first should the latter court Shaina Magdayao, John’s former girlfriend. “Nakaka-touch na alam ko nagma-matter ang friendship namin. Wala namang mababago na talagang kapatid ko ‘yan. Kahit anong mangyari priority namin ang bawat isa sa pagkakaibigan,” John replied.
He continued that he wasn’t surprised when Sam confessed to him that he had a crush on Shaina. “Kami ni Sam very open kami. ‘Yung friendship namin very open, hindi kami magkaibigan, magkapatid kami. So talagang nung sinabi niya na crush niya si Shaina hindi naman ako nagulat kasi talagang maganda naman si Shaina, tsaka mabait. Kaya di naman ako magugulat na nagkaroon siya ng crush.”
Besides, John justified that he has no reason to feel bad because he has long-since moved on from his previous relationship with Shaina. “Nagkaroon na ako ng dalawang karelasyon after niya. Kumbaga hindi na issue para sa akin ‘yon. Nagpaalam siya (Sam), ‘What if ligawan ko?’ Mga ganyan. Sabi ko, ‘Oo naman and I’m not going to stop you.’ Siyempre puso ‘yan,” related John.
With regards to his career, 2013 has just started and John already feels satisfied with the positive events happening in his career. He shared that their late night gag show Banana Split continues to post very high ratings despite its very late time slot. He continued that he is also working on a reality-based TV show where he will be one of the hosts that will be airing soon on ABS-CBN. “Okay ako ngayon, mas relax ako ngayong taong ito. Ngayon nae-enjoy ko naman wala naman akong reklamo sa mga nangyayari sa akin.”
Last year, John returned to acting via the teleserye Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto and he related that though drama is not his comfort zone, he is satisfied with his acting comeback. “For some weird reason ‘yung comeback ko ng drama mas relax ako na dapat mas tense ako kasi di naman ako nagda-drama. Pero mas relax ako, mas na-enjoy kong laruin ang character na ‘yon.
