In the new series The Goodbye Girl, Barbie Imperial plays the role of a woman named Kiera who had no idea the guy she was dating already had a girlfriend. The outspoken actress said that even though she plays the anti-hero, her latest role still has redeeming qualities about her.

“In defense naman kay Kiera, gulatan din kasi yun eh. Nandun ka na akala mo may something na kayo tapos bigla kang gugulatin na may legal pala na asawa. Parang yung emotion mo nun gulong gulo. May confrontation naman yung mom and Kiera na gusto naman niya talaga na makipaghiwalay pero hindi niya lang kaya. Wala talagang kamahal mahal sa mga taong manloloko but sa character ko naman dahil siya ng yung other girl and niloko niya pa rin yung wife ni Turs (Daza) sa series, ang konting konting kamahal mahal sa character ni Kiera is that bumawi naman siya sa huli. I’m not saying na tama yung ginagawa ng mga taong nanloloko or ng mga other girls. Mali talaga yun. Pero yung ibang tao kasi talaga, pag mahal nila yung tao bulag ka talaga eh di ba? So mali pero also imagine the pain na pinagdadaanan ng tao na yun. Pero mali pa rin. At the end of the day kailangan babawi ka talaga. Itatama mo yung mali mo,” she explained.

Working with co-star Turs Daza for the first time was an easygoing experience for Barbie who said that they clicked even off camera.

“First we talked about yung mga self-care books and then napunta kami sa crypto and sobrang kumportable ako with Turs. Parang dun lang ulit kami nagkita pero pina-feel niya talaga na puwede ako mag-open up sa kanya sa eksena and off cam din may mga napag-usapan din kami about life. So it was a good experience. Sobrang gaan. Ang gaan niya katrabaho and very gentlemen,” she said.

Now single after admitting that she and ex-boyfriend Diego Loyzaga are now separated, Barbie shared why she would never agree to being the other woman or condone anyone who agrees to be a third party in a relationship.

”Basta for me if may ibang tao ka na nasasaktan and alam mo talaga na nasasaktan sila tapos ginagawa mo pa rin, for me mali talaga yun. I think depende sa sitwasyon to be honest. Kasi maraming other women na hindi nila alam na other women [sila] so kawawa sila di ba? Pero kung alam nila na other woman sila at pinapasok pa rin nila yung gulo na yun, alam na nila na may legal na girlfriend or wife hindi talaga. Ayoko. Naniniwala kasi ako sa karma eh. Na kung ano yung pinaparamdam mo sa isang tao, ipaparamdam yan sa ‘yo balang araw,” she said. 

Having started from bit roles to starring in different projects, Barbie said she always learns more about her craft with each new work.

“That’s very true kasi siyempre nagsimula ako sa maliit lang na role before and then I went to Showtime GirlTrends and then after [It’s] Showtime small role ulit. Puro small roles lang pero madami akong natututunan. And then lahat ng natutunan ko na yun sa mga small roles na ginampanan ko, yun yung dinala ko nung first time kong mag-lead sa Araw Gabi and then next projects ulit na lead so sobrang happy ako na finally nag-li-lead na,” she added.
