Singer-actress Karylle gets bombarded with controversial questions related to family and matters of the heart. She gets asked once again about her ex-boyfriend Dingdong Dantes and rumored girlfriend Marian Rivera, but this time she gives more than just a smile.

Karylle appeared on the May 17 episode of The Buzz to answer ten of the toughest questions she's faced so far in showbiz. The singer looked nervous albeit excited at the questions about to be thrown at her.

However, host Ruffa Gutierrez—who was the interviewer for this time—started out with a not-so-tough question. She asked, "I-rank mo ang most to the least important: Kagandahan, Kayamanan, Kaligayahan ng puso."

Smiling, Karylle gave a little laugh and answered, "I think kasi ang kaligayahan ng puso, e importante iyon. So, yun ang number one."

So what's the second?

"Kagandahan na lang," laughed Karylle. Still in a joking mood, she added, "Kasi pag maganda ka naman maraming dumarating na project... Tapos kayamanan!"

The second question for Karylle in fact was a package of two. The first question was: When was the last time she felt giddy about a text message? The second (and probably most important) was from whom did it come from?

A flushing Karylle admitted, "May nakapanood doon sa ginawa ko sa ASAP tapos...siguro kilala niyo siya."

Does the guy's name start at the letter J?

"Kailangan ko pa ba sabihin?" smiled Karylle.

Ruffa laughed and said, "Si Jericho iyon!"

Getting no reaction from Karylle's side, Ruffa added, "Si Jericho nga siguro dahil hindi siya nag-deny!"

The third question was related of course, to matters of the heart. Has Karylle moved on definitely and finally this time from her breakup with Dingdong Dantes?

Karylle gave a little smile and said, "Actually ang bago kong single is ‘Almost Over You' and every time I sing it sa mga malls, parang sabi ko na buti ito na lang ang single. Dati kasi ang single ko ‘I'll Never Get Over You.' So sabi ko sana nag next single para naman masabi ko na patapos na, di ba?"

After her answer, Karylle proceeded to explain that she was almost at the finish line of getting over him.

Since Karylle was almost over "him," is she now ready to fall in love again?

"Hindi," answered Karylle. "Actually I asked myself that question kasi especially noong birthday ko na parang everyone kept wishing na sana ma-in love ka and it always seems like na puwede na, pero I don't want to be fair naman to somebody na I would call my boyfriend na hindi ko naman siya totally na mabigay ang heart ko."

When asked what kind of guy she wanted, Karylle dreamily answered, "Gusto ko iyong matalino. I am not saying na sobrang nerd—but very open sa learning, at hindi sarado ang isip and somebody na I can learn a lot from. Somebody who makes me feel like, ‘Ang ganda ng aura mo.' Pag dumating ka, parang umaaliwalas ang paligid dahil lang sa nakikita niya sa iyo."

Karylle's latest movie Litsonero shows her having a kissing scene with co-star Paolo Contis. Since Paolo and Dingdong are best friends, how can Karylle permit that she kiss Paolo?

"Actually matagal na ito, e," explained Karylle. "Matagal na itong movie scene and I think at that time we were still together. It's work naman siguro. Hindi ko naman siya ginawa like, parang ang labas sa tao, e ‘Revenge ba ‘yan?' Something like that. Siyempre it's for work!"

Litsonero will be screened in select cinemas starting May 20, 2009.

That said, Karylle moved on to answer the fifth question, which was: Would Karylle choose a loyal man or an honest man?

"Nakakalito naman yun," admitted Karylle. "Siguro yung liar kung kunyari, you're having a bad hair day tapos sabihin niya na ‘Ang ganda-ganda mo.' Yun, ganoon lie okay lang. Siguro ano na lang, loyal."

News has it that Karylle is being admired by guys in London. What is her say on this?

"Actually my show kami sa London," laughed Karylle. "Hindi ko alam, e."

Is she open to dating foreigners?

"Huwag naman," said Karylle. "Ayoko ng date ng date, pero group date okay lang. Hindi ko pa kasi nagagawa ang blind date."

. The next question for Karylle now concentrated on her mom, Zsa-Zsa. The question read: If there were anything Karylle would be sorry for to her mother, what would it be?

"Siguro in the past, my time na hindi ko matanggap ang mga nangyari so she would always be writing to me and calling me tapos hindi ko sinasagot tawag niya—and for that, I am sorry."

So are the two of them okay right now?

"Oo," said Karylle. "It was quite a childhood thing... I went through all the family healing thing and okay na ngayon. One of the big indicators na everything was going to be okay was when we went to Amanpulo for our first bonding trip with my two sisters Zia and Nicole. Para siyang paradise and heaven. Sabi ko nga sa mga tao na kung naging sad childhood mo, si God pag bumawi siya, He'll give you everything."

The second to the last question gave Karylle an unexpected start as it refocuses on Dingdong Dantes. Ruffa asked, "Kunyari nakaharap mo si Dingdong Dantes, walang ibang tao. Ano ang una mong gagawin at sasabihin sa kanya?"

Karylle bluntly said, "Wala na, e. Siguro kamustahin ko lang. Before kasi we used to talk about our dreams and goals, so I'll just ask him on far along he is in reaching his dreams."

"I've already made my peace with him and everything that happened."

Well that kind of answer definitely deserves a final question laced with something—or someone—connected to Dingdong right now: Marian Rivera. If Karylle were to see Marian right now, what would she say?

"For me, nakausap ko na siya before," said the singer-actress. "And that was that. I said things that I had to say and I said all of it and it ended there. For me kasi, whatever I had to tell her, I told her so okay na."
