Carla Abellana Says Work Is Helping Her Move OnCarla Abellana considers her many projects and the accolades being thrown her way and her movies as a form of blessing for what happened to her in the past months. She is, of course, talking about her breakup with longtime boyfriend, actor Geoff Eigenmann.
"Definitely rewarded not just for working hard on the movie, but I guess for all the drama na pinagdaanan ko these past couple of months. Na bumabawi si Lord… na medyo pinasasaya niya ako."
These projects are helping her move on. Carla said because she has so many projects to finish, she has no time to dwell on the past and think about what happened between them.
She and Geoff broke up amid intrigues that Geoff tried to pursue Kylie Padilla. There were also rumors that Carla was dissatisfied that Geoff doesn't have a house of his own.
Although it is not easy to move on, Carla said her projects and her fans help a lot because she is able to make them happy through her work.
The thought of being single hasn't sunk in yet, the actress said, adding that she has no time to enjoy her singlehood. "Sa trabaho pa lang, parang busog na ako. So, sana… tingnan natin kung mae-enjoy ko pa siya being single."
For now, Carla and Geoff have no communication. She also didn't go with him to Japan, an earlier trip planned by them before the breakup happened. That trip also coincided with the showing of "So It's You."
Before the Japan trip, the promo for the movie has also started, Carla said. "So, malabo talagang makasama ako sa Japan." Whether they have already broken up or not, Carla said it's impossible for her to go to Japan with Geoff because of the movie.
"Basta, let’s say we end up together, kami man, hindi kami mag-break up, ika-cancel ko pa rin siya, kasi kailangan ko talagang tutukan yung promo ng movie. Kasi first rom-com ko ‘yan, e. Ayoko namang pabayaan."
Is there a chance for her and Geoff to get back together? As of now, Carla cannot say since they haven't talked for quite a while. She doesn't know when they will talk again. "Parang it’s too soon din naman."
She cannot yet foresee what will happen in the next years because she is really busy with her work.
Carla doesn't look like a woman who came from a breakup. She said that it's because she's happy and she remains positive. There are so many reasons to smile, she added.
