As much as she is busy working on her music and daily hosting duties on It's Showtime, Karylle said she is excited to have a different kind of Valentine's Date on February 14. Her show Date Night at Manila House promises to be laidback night of standards and Broadway music which Karylle said she could not have conceptualized without the help of her good friend Paolo Valenciano. "Manila House is one of my most favorite places in Metro Manila. I'm just excited for everyone because it’s a very exclusive place and for Valentine's Day they are opening it up to the public so you could definitely have your romantic date there and we built it to be an experience para iba. We have a chill set, a no-frills kind of a date," she shared during her presscon held last February 5 in Quezon City.

Last week, it was revealed that Karylle had a pleasant encounter with Marian Rivera and her husband Dingdong Dantes. Before marrying musician Yael Yuzon in 2014, Karylle dated Dingdong and there were plenty of speculations that Marian was the cause of the then couple’s breakup. "I honestly don't want to re-tell the story. I told it to a good friend in confidence (laughs). So to add to that is very dangerous because I don't want people to misinterpret it as me trying to make a thing of it. But I think my good friend, na itago natin sa pangalang Vice Ganda (laughs), whom I love very, very much, I think she was just very happy. You know sometimes when your friend is happy for you they can't help but share? I don't know if it's like a breakthrough moment or one of those like sa Facebook na life moment. For some people kasi who don't really experience that kind of thing, they wouldn't understand. But since na-gets niya then na-share niya. Okay lang naman din sa akin but I just don't want to add to it in such a way na it might get misinterpreted. Let's leave it at that," she explained.

Karylle said she didn't mind the public finding out about the encounter and hoped it can serve as an inspiration for other people who went through a similar experience. "I think it's good for people to know also that these things are possible even for themselves. So baka ma-inspire yung iba na hindi nila maabot yung moment na yun. Baka ngayon feel na nila na ma-achieve for Valentine's kasi it's about love. It's so beautiful as it is. I'm not going to add to it kasi baka ma-misinterpret pa so it was a beautiful moment and I think we can leave it at that para less talk, less mistakes," she added.

With regards to her co-host Vice Ganda's recent announcement about undergoing a kidney stone operation, Karylle said she is also waiting for an update on her good friend. "Hindi ko alam eh. All I know is may in-announce sila. I don't have a precise update kasi may narinig akong magkaibang updates so I don't want to give the wrong one," she added.
