Cosmo girl Mariel Rodriguez: Single by choice

Since her first TV appearance in 2005, Mariel Rodriguez has come a long way as a host. She's also been given the chance to cross over to comedy when she played a part in "Ok Fine, Oh Yes!," an ABS-CBN defunct comedy sitcom which topbilled Aga Muhlach. Now, her ultimate target is to become a dramatic actress!

Mariel Rodriguez is decidedly single by choice. While others may wonder why such a beautiful lady would choose to be single, she does have quite a lot on her hands. With daily hosting stints on Wowowee and midnight updates on Pinoy Big Brother, Mariel manages to have only four hours of sleep. Just where would she find the time to squeeze in a boyfriend?

"Right now, I wouldn't be able to give everything and the time that a boyfriend needs," she tells Cosmopolitan magazinethis April. What about Zanjoe Marudo, whose name has been repeatedly linked to hers? "We don't have an anniversary, and we don't say ‘I love you', but we talk, we text. I know what's happening with his life, he knows what's happening with mine. It's just better that we're friends," she shares.

For now, work is really Mariel's top priority. Truth be told, Mariel's dream is to become a dramatic actress in either soap operas or movies. "[But] whenever I say I want to be a dramatic actress, they say, 'comedy ka, eh.'" She adds, "That's my goal, but I'm far from that goal."

The daily showbiz grind is rich with learning experiences, and Mariel gets by on her own brand of buoyancy. "It's okay to make mistakes because you can redeem yourself tomorrow," she says, "There's always room for improvement. I just think, tomorrow, I will be fabulous."
