After recently posting bikini photos online, many speculated that Barbie Imperial shared the sexy shots for a special someone, but the Oh, Mando! actress clarified her real intentions during the mediacon for her new iWant TFC digital series.

Hindi siya para sa ibang tao. Hindi siya para sa mga past na naging boyfriend or naging guy ko. Nung 2018 baka oo pero hello it’s 2020 (laughs). Pino-post ko naman yun kasi gusto ko siya talagang i-post and before kasi, sobrang na-insecure ako sa stretchmarks ko. Ma-stretchmarks kasi akong tao. Sobrang halata niya kasi ang puti puti ko. Ngayon, habang tumatagal, and siguro habang tumatanda ka at marami kang natututunan, marami kang nakakasamang mga tao, parang you learn to love your own body talaga. Pino-post ko talaga siya para sa sarili ko na parang nakikita ko rin na wow ito yung improvement and masaya ako na nakikita ko na mas nagiging okay yung body ko. Kasi mas gusto ko pa siyang pagandahin lalo,” she explained.

Barbie admitted that one of the biggest challenges in her life during the past few years has been moving on from her relationship with another actor in 2018.

Siguro nung 2018, to be honest yun talaga yung time na siyempre bata pa ako, pag na-in love sobra sobra. When I love, mahal ko talaga yung tao. Ako pag nagmahal ako, mahal na mahal ko talaga yung tao. So yung boyfriend ko nung time na yun, parang sa kanya ko talaga na-experience yung Oh Mando! (laughs) moment na one moment sobrang in love and then next hindi. Dun naghalo-halo and then nung time na yun nag-fail yung love life pero dun nag-start yung career ko. Dun nag-start yung Araw Gabi nung 2018. But yung family ko rin medyo magulo. I think ganun naman talaga ang buhay. Paiba-iba talaga but you just have to learn how to accept it and i-live mo lang yung buhay mo kasi ganun naman talaga yung buhay eh. Someday magiging stories na lang tayong lahat, magiging memories na lang tayo so mabuhay lang tayo ng masaya, yan na yun,”  she shared during the Oh, Mando! mediacon last November 4.

In her new iWant TFC BL series, Barbie plays the girlfriend of Kokoy de Santos whom she is paired with onscreen for the very first time.

Gusto ko yung personality ni Kokoy. Ang sexy for me kay Kokoy yung pagiging gentleman niya na tao. Siya yung tao kasi na kahit artista ka, sa prod ka, lead ka, extra ka, or talent ka, iti-treat ka niya pantay. Walang boss, walang pinakamababa. yun yung gusto ko kay Kokoy,” she shared.

In the show, her character gets into a love triangle when Mando (Kokoy) develops feelings for his schoolboy crush (played by Alex Diaz). 

Watch the original Dreamscape Entertainment and Found films BL series Oh, Mando! on iWant TFC. Oh, Mando! also stars Alex Diaz and Kokoy de Santos and is directed by Eduardo Roy.
