Piolo Pascual Says Shaina Magdayao Remains Special To HimPiolo Pascual is busy with a myriad of projects right now, so he has no time for his lovelife. He's also taking care of his 17-year-old son Inigo who's currently in the Philippines.
What happened to his relationship with Shaina Magdayao, his rumored girlfriend? Piolo said they are both busy now, but he is happy that they are able to preserve the friendship they had before.
It is better for the two of them if they will have a low-key relationship. After all, showbiz is a small world and they will surely bump into each other at one point in their careers again.
"We don’t want to think everything all at the same time. Whatever’s on your plate, use it, and maximize it. If it comes, it comes when it comes."
It's hard for him to date anyone because he has no time even for himself. He needs to learn more about how to balance his priorities and his time.
"She will always be a special friend. Siya lang naman yung huling nakasama ko na in an intimate way."
Meanwhile, Piolo admitted that he almost quit showbiz before the hit "Starting Over Again." He was nearing the end of his contract with ABS-CBN, and he thought about not renewing it anymore.
That's why he was emotional during the victory party for "Starting Over Again," which he starred in with Toni Gonzaga. He felt vindicated because of the success of the movie, and he expressed appreciation for the way ABS-CBN offered another exclusive contract to him.
His decision to stay in showbiz rest on the support he received from the Kapamilya network and his fans. "To be given this show, the movie, it’s a blessing. It’s humbling and, at the same time, it’s a responsibility na mahirap talikuran."
Piolo will now star in another teleserye for ABS-CBN titled "Hawak Kamay." He will star in it alongside Iza Calzado and Nikki Gil. Other Kapamilya child stars will also be there such as Zaijian Jaranilla, Xyriel Manabat, Andrea Brillantes and Yesha Camille.
Piolo is now focused on this teleserye since it's hard to do a movie and a TV series at the same time. Also, he is pressured to follow in the success of "Starting Over Again." He wants to give it time first.
It's better for him if he becomes choosy with his projects, so that he is sure he will provide quality products to the viewers.
