This year is definitely not a good year for Janus del Prado's love life. For the second time within a year, he is mending a broken heart. His love affair of two months with fellow Star Magic talent Alex Pierson ended last December 1.
"But we're still friends. Siguro nga I'm not that mature enough kasi lagi ko agad sinerseryoso lahat ng relasyon ko. Yun din ang observation ng ilang friends ko. But this is easier for me to accept than the last time," says Janus who was referring to his failed relationship with Carla Humphries, another Star Magic talent, which ended on a bitter note March of this year.
Janus continues, "Hindi masyadong masakit ito [with Alex] kasi mas maiksi ang pinagsamahan namin. Saka nag-uusap naman kami. Wala kaming pinag-awayan. Siguro, we just felt hindi pa talaga kami handa."
But actions speak louder than words because even though Janus seemed to be enjoying Regal Entertainment's Christmas party last Monday, December 18, at the Imperial Palace Suites in Quezon City, his eyes spoke otherwise.
PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) had a chance to interview the young actor only last November 30 and he was very high about his romance with Alex. So it's shocking to find out that they decided to break up the following night.
"Pahinga muna siguro ako. Ise-set ko muna ang priorities ko this time. I-enjoy ko muna ang pagiging single ko. Magpapayaman muna ako!" Janus jests.
Janus appears in the episode "LRT" of Shake Rattle & Roll 8, one of Regal Entertainment's Metro Manila Film Festival entries this year.
