Sa tanong naman kung sino ang nakipaghiwalay, ito ang masasabi ni Cat, “Because actually po, we were having some problems even before the pageant. We weren’t on speaking terms so much.”
Rebelasyon ni Cat, “It was really hard going through the competition with that happening all at the same time but I had to keep reminding myself this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I need to give my best of… why am here? I want to represent the Philippines well.”
Ganun man ang nangyari sa relasyon nila ni Clint, nananatili diumano ang respeto at pagpapasalamat niya kay Clint. “So it was a struggle but you know I see that he’s doing so well now and I don’t want to talk about it that much because one, I’m private. And two, I greatly respect him and I’m grateful for the time I had with him. I just wish him the best.”
Ang naging dahilan diumano ng breakup ay ang pagka-outgrow nila sa isa’t isa. “When you’re together for so long and you start off from a very young age, you grow. Whether that be in your personal, or your career… sometimes, you outgrow each other in a way,” ayon pa kay Cat.
Dagdag pa ng pinakamagandang babae sa Universe, “If we’re meant to be together, maybe it will happen in the future. As of right now naman po… (Cat shakes her head.)”
Mahal pa kaya ni Cat si Clint? Ito ang sagot ni Cat, “I’m always grateful to him for the time that I shared with him because he has seen me through so much, I’ve seen him through so much. We’ve both supported each other. We just didn’t work out.”
Ang lesson naman daw na natutunan ni Cat sa nangyari sa relasyon nila ni Clint ay, “to need to communicate.”
Hindi rin daw sila on speaking terms ngayon ng kanyang ex. “Not at the moment po. I think we’re both figuring out our things.”
Gusto rin diumano ni Cat na ma-experience ang pagiging single lalo na ngayong ine-enjoy niya ang kanyang reign bilang Miss Universe. “I want to… I’ve never been a young adult; especially a growing young Christian din in a season of singleness. And I think it’s really important as an individual because you want to know what you want, who you are, to be establishing your identity as your own person and I just want to take that time…”
Malalaman naman daw ni Cat kapag ready na siyang magmahal muli, “exactly and I don’t feel ready at all.”
Pagtatapos ni Catriona, “Being Miss Universe for a year is an amazing experience and I just want to grow in that kind of season as Miss Universe.”
