Narito ang takbo ng interview ni Mo kay Abby:
MO: Si Paolo mismo ang nag-admit na sa breakup, since siya ang lalaki, siya ang dapat na mag-open up. Now that ikaw naman ang magsasalita, what went wrong with the relationship? Bakit kayo nag-break up?
ABBY: Well, lack of commitment, lack of time...
MO: Isn't showbiz relationships always lack of time? So, what does it mean?
ABBY: I think it's on his part. Well, I'm really gonna make the distance with him... Talk about getting married, settling down... But siguro, sa kanya lang yung ano talaga, marami siyang iniisip. Marami siyang priorities na kailangan niyang tapusin on his own talaga.
MO: So, you're saying ang lack of time kay Paolo, at yung lack of commitment could be interpreted as kay Paolo rin?
ABBY: Parehas kami...parehas naman. Pero somewhere along the way, nagkaproblema here and there na hindi na namin maayos. Hindi na namin... parang hindi kami ganoon nag-compromise.
MO: Did you feel like, for you, it's time to break up and that this relationship is just gonna work out?
ABBY: Kasi noong when we were together, we can work it out. Ako yung nagbibigay ng hope na, 'C'mon, kaya natin 'to. Parang mag-compromise tayo sa isang situation.' Kasi ganoon naman talaga, you'll meet halfway.
MO: Are you angry with Paolo because of this?
ABBY: No, I'm not. I'm not angry with him. I'm just hurt and disappointed that we had a very good thing.
MO: Looking back at the relationship that you had with Paolo, are you still hurting now? I can still see the sadness in your eyes...
ABBY: Past four months, I was really, really hurting talaga. But now, I'm healing. I have this new season in my life. With God's grace, I am looking forward.
MO: Paolo is one of the nicest guys in the industry. Is there anything that you can say na kulang ka sa pagiging girlfriend? Was there anything missing on your side rin?
ABBY: Lahat naman ng tao may pagkukulang sa relationship. Siyempre, ang Diyos naman ang makakapag-complete sa atin, di ba? Of course, hindi ko sinasabi na sa kanya lahat. Of course, ako, meron din mga pagkukulang. Marami akong mga tantrums, marami akong... Yun ang mga things na, as of now, hindi pa namin kayang mag-give in talaga. Yun.
MO: Noong nandito si Paolo last week, sinabi niyang friends kayo. Does it mean that you're no longer hurt?
ABBY: Well, yun nga, sabi ko, I'm moving forward. Mas gusto kong sabihin yun than moving on. Sa totoo lang, Paolo and I can't be friends as of now. That's really hard. Anyone na nag-break, di ba? Na-hurt kayo parehas and it has to take time. You guys have to heal together and, so 'pag okay na kayo in time, work things out, be friends and have coffee together.
MO: You're open to be friends with him?
ABBY: Of course.
MO: Is there anything you want to say to him?
ABBY: Wow, nakakatawa naman... It just feels weird! From someone na palagi mong kasama, kausap, but now, you'll just gonna tell it on camera. But then, gusto kong sabihin sa kanya na you've been a very great boyfriend. I super, super love you, and I still love you. In the future... Well, you just take your time. We're both healing and, you know, I just want to get back to God and, you know, He's always there for you, for us. So I just wish the best in your show [Survivor Philippines: Palau]. I'm your big fan. Super proud ako sa 'yo, Pao. So there.
MO: Are you still hanging on? What if tumawag si Paolo and he said, 'Okay, Abby, we can try another time.' What will you say?
ABBY: I'm not saying no... never say never. Marami namang puwedeng mangyari in the future. I'll just pray about it.
