Heart Evangelista Says 2013 Is A "Life-Changing" Year For HerIt is at the beginning of this year that Heart Evangelista's parents held a press conference airing their disapproval of the actress' relationship with Senator Chiz Escudero, who they called disrespectful and a "drunkard."
This did not stop the actress from continuing on with her relationship, and moving out of the condo unit she shared with her parents. Until now, Heart has barely spoken with his mother and father.
It was definitely a life-changing year for the actress since she's gotten independent. She has to pay her bills, buy her groceries and take care of her new house all on her own. She was so used to being babied and taken care of that she realized how truly liberating it is to be independent.
Also, she recently allowed herself to pose sexy for Esquire Philippines and to be Tanduay's 2014 calendar girl.
Heart said what happened in 2013 "scarred" her for life and gave her a "dent." But she maintained that it will not define her as a person and that life is not over for her.
The truth is, Heart said what happened this year made her a totally different person from who she was before. She also went through a rebellious phase and did stupid things.
However, the actress got to the point where she wanted to take responsibility for her actions and just live her life. "And I did it. Now, everything that I decide on, my intuition is, parang, trustworthy kumbaga, because I really know what I want."
This Christmas, Heart has no concrete plans yet. She can only say that she will be with Senator Chiz to spend the holidays since she's not okay with her mom yet.
Heart doesn't want to be pretentious and say she's ready to face her mother. She's not, the actress added, so it would be better if they can just give it more time and just talk when they are both truly ready.
This issue with the senator is bigger than any other issues Heart went through because of her parents. It can be remembered that her parents also disapproved of her relationship with actor Jericho Rosales, who she moved in with for about three years.
"This is a compilation of everything I’ve been through in my life. It wasn’t just because of the one guy that I had. It’s... all the great people that I’ve lost in my past because I chose their happiness."
Heart is not looking for any material gifts this coming holidays. What she wants is for the blessings to continue and her attitude in life to become better. She's more into seeing herself develop as a person, she added.
The actress also finds it selfish to ask for many material things amid what happened in eastern Visayas and other places destroyed by typhoons, earthquakes and natural calamities.
Meanwhile, Heart expressed her gratitude that her teleserye, "Magkano Ba Ang Pag-Ibig?," will run until February 2014.
The scenes are actually intensifying, the actress said, adding that the viewers would have to wait if she will end up with Dominic Roco or Sid Lucero.
