"Tina-try ko pa rin i-save ‘yong private life ko kahit na ganun, kahit na kung ano na lang ang naiiwan, sinusubukan ko pa ring saluhin. Ang hirap, e. Hindi ko kasi gusto ‘yong napapanood ko sa TV na everybody knows kung anong nangyayari sa buhay mo araw-araw... ‘Yong mga big events nga ng buhay mo, alam na, ‘di ba? Iyong iba naman sana ibigay na lang sayo," says Kristine Hermosa about trying to keep things in her life pr

Kristine Hermosa is back on primetime television with her new teleserye Prinsesa ng Banyera, together with TJ Trinidad and Rafael Rosell. During the cast pictorial of the said soap earlier today, September 7, PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) got the chance to catch up with the female lead of the said series.

"Ako si Maningning, very responsible, mabait na bata, [at] sexy! Dapat magawa ko 'yong character na iyon!" said an excited Tin, as Kristine is more popularly known. "May values naman [siya]. Hindi palengkera. Ako ‘yong pinaka-nanay ng mga kaibigan ko."

Tin plays a fish wholesaler at the piers, where she will meet the character of TJ Trinidad. The soap is Tin's current big project since Palimos ng Pag-ibig.

"Actually, nagsabay-sabay, e. ‘Pag walang work, totally wala. ‘Pag pahinga ka, pahinga ka talaga," she explained.

HOMEBUDDY. Though she had free time on her hands in between projects, the 24-year-old actress admitted that she is not the type who goes out and parties.

"Hindi kasi rin ganoon ‘yong personality ko na outgoing, e. Sobra lang talaga ako sa bahay. Homebuddy lang talaga. Nagkataon pa na sobra akong close sa mga lalaki kaysa sa mga babae. Mas buddy-buddy ko ‘yong mga lalaki kaysa sa mga girls."

After ending her relationship with Diether Ocampo, Tin revealed that she already expected people to think that she dates the guys she is seen with because of her recluse personality. She was recently rumored to be going out with Rajiv, a non-showbiz Middle Eastern guy.

"We're not dating. Kawawa naman, kasi very private din kasi ‘yong family noon, e. So kawawa, in a sense, kasi nasasabit ‘yong pangalan niya dito. Pero hindi ko siya dine-date, kaibigan ko lang siya and kaibigan din siya ni Diet," she clarified.

"Nandito siya for a vacation kasi nandito ‘yong family niya. Siyempre ako naman, kaibigan lang naman din ako, di ba? And noong nandoon din naman ako sa U.S., sila ang nag-alaga sa akin. Tinour din naman ako ng mga friends ko, pero lagi kaming grupo."

"Inilabas ko rin siya pero hindi kaming dalawa lang. I was always with my friend, ‘yong kaibigan kong babae. Never kaming naiwan together na kaming dalawa lang. Inilabas ko lang din siya, kung ano ‘yong free time ko."

She added, "Alam ni Diet na nilalabas ko. There was this one time nga na nagkita pa sila. Kasi si Diet sobrang busy siya lately kasi nga may ginagawa siyang soap, so 'pag may free time lang siya ‘tsaka lang siya nakakasama sa amin. So ayun, sumama siya noong last day ata ‘yon nung friend ko [Rajiv]."

OYO SOTTO. Tin mentioned that this wasn't the first time that she was linked to the people she goes out with.

"Feeling ko ganoon lang talaga ‘yong iisipin ng mga tao kasi they never saw me talaga na going out with guys other than Diether. Feeling na nila something's going on."

She named Oyo Sotto as one of those guy friends.

"Even ‘yong Oyo part na siguro first time lang nila ako nakita lumabas, kasi I don't really go out. Dumating ako sa point ng buhay ko na gusto ko na I wanted to enjoy kumbaga ‘yong age ko naman, kasi never ko naman napagdaanan ‘yon."

"Nagkataon na sobra kaming nag-click ni Oyo. Imagine from Enteng Kabisote 1 and 2, every year kaming magkasama, pero naging close lang kami doon sa Enteng Kabisote 3 na. Parang hindi ba sila nagtataka kung bakit ngayon lang [kami] naging close? Kasi nga I don't really mingle. I don't talk. Nahihiya pa ako sa kanila noong kapanahunan na 'yon."

After almost 14 years in the business, Tin acknowledged that her life is an open book because of her profession.

"Tina-try ko pa rin i-save ‘yong private life ko kahit na ganoon, kahit na kung ano na lang ang naiiwan sinusubukan ko pa ring saluhin. Ang hirap, e. Hindi ko kasi gusto ‘yong napapanood ko sa TV na everybody knows kung anong nangyayari sa buhay mo araw-araw... ‘Yong mga big events nga ng buhay mo, alam na, ‘di ba? Iyong iba naman sana ibigay na lang sa 'yo."
