During the recent Skechers Move In Style fashion show held last June 3, celebrities like Barbie Imperial, Mikee Agustin, Nikko Natividad joined Skechers ambassador Gerald Anderson onstage to showcase the footwear brand’s newest street line. During the event, PUSH noticed Star Magic actor Paul Salas waiting backstage even though he was not part of the event. It turns out he was waiting for Barbie. When asked about their status, Barbie denied they are already dating. “Wala po akong love life (laughs). No kasi may lakad lang kami ng friends ko ngayon talaga yung barkada. But I think people find it cute kasi dati fan lang talaga ako ni Paul kaya siguro parang aliw yung mga tao to see na from a fan girl parang close na sila. First time kami mag-meet bata pa ako dun. Fan girl niya pa ako nun. Fan talaga,” she admitted to PUSH.
The 18-year-old actress said that even though they currently go on group dates together, she is not looking for a relationship at the moment. “Kung may pag-asa siya? Siguro po pero ngayon hindi kasi siyempre maraming nangyari before na parang hindi maganda yung pag-end ng relationship kaya medyo natatakot ako. So huwag na muna sa ngayon,” she admitted.
One of the things Barbie really appreciates about Paul is his patience which she said definitely makes him boyfriend material. “Kasi matagal na kaming magkakilala tapos hindi pa rin siya nagbabago. As in sobrang effort niya na tao at saka sobrang bait. At saka hindi siya yung kapag nagagalit sumisigaw or nagdadabog. Sobrang kalmado niya lang. Kunwari may nagawa ako, sasabihin niya, ‘B kasi mali yun,’ ganun. Hindi siya sumisigaw,” she explained.
While still waiting for her next acting project, Barbie said she would be happy to be offered another dramatic role. “Okay naman ako. Sobrang saya ngayon and ganun pa rin tulad ng dati, happy. Gusto ko yung siyempre bida (laughs). Drama talaga yung gusto ko kasi ewan ko, lalo na yung role na about sa dad? Kunyari iniwan ng dad, parang ang bilis ko talaga maka-relate. Kunwari may iyakan scenes parang tinatamaan agad ako kaya yun yung tipo ng role na gusto ko talaga makuha,” she shared.
