Paul Salas and Barbie Imperial may have been rumored to be together for months now, but the actress admitted that her top priority as of the moment is her career so that she could finally help alleviate her family from poverty and give them greener pastures.
“Ako po as a person, seryoso ako sa buhay. Pero hindi po ako ‘yung nagtatanong about sa future. ‘Yung hindi pwede na parang wala wala lang. Dapat sa araw-araw kailangan nag-iimprove ang isang tao,” she said.
“Hindi pwede na itong sa araw na ‘to wala i-eenjoy ko lang. Kailangan araw-araw merong dumadaan sa utak ko na paano aasenso ang buhay ko, ‘yung pamilya ko. Mas seryoso po ako dun,” she added.
Though she didn’t directly answer the question linking her romantically to Araw Gabi co-star JM de Guzman, Barbie lauded her leading man for being a nice person.
“Hindi ko po alam pero mabait po talaga si JM. Sa ngayon po kasi talaga, wala eh. Work, work, work,” she said.
“Kami po ni JM ngayon sobrang close po namin. As in close,” she added.
Some members of the press also asked Barbie about the future of her alleged relationship with Paul. Reiterating that she wants to focus on her career, she said she simply wants to enjoy whatever the two of them have as of the moment.
“Ngayon po kasi honestly focused lang ako sa career kasi siyempre matagal ko ‘tong hinintay para sa family ko so priority ko ‘kung career ko and family,” she said.
“Siyempre hindi ko naman po hawak kung ano talaga ang para sa amin ni Paul. Ini-enjoy lang po namin kung ano kami ngayon. Bahala na po si Lord. Kung kami talaga, kami,” she added.
