Gretchen Ho volunteered that she and ex-boyfriend Robi Domingo have no communication outside of their work.
The Umagang Kay Ganda host also said only the two of them knew what went wrong in their relationship.
She explained, "Andami kasi nangyayari sa 'min na hindi alam ng mga tao sa labas.
“That's why we chose to keep quiet.
“Maraming mga bagay na personal na kaming dalawa lang nakakaintindi.
“Kaming dalawa lang ang nakakaalam kung nasaan kami.
"Sa nakikita namin… we chose to separate kasi it's helping us both grow as people, as persons."
Two weeks after Gretchen and Robi were both spotted at a media event, she seemed relieved that their split has had a positive effect on her career.
“Parang tuluy-tuloy din yung opportunities dumadating sa buhay ko in terms of work.
"Nakita ko na gusto ni Lord mag-focus ako sa mission ko para sa Kanya.
"Kaya nga, yun, mas aggressive ako this year in accepting projects,” she said.
Gretchen added, “I think, 'yon yung sinasabi naming dalawa, it's for our growth, e.
"So, I've been growing a lot."
The TV host spoke to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and a small group of press at a contract signing session for World Vision this Monday, May 22.
Gretchen is named as World Vision's newest ambassador for Health and Nutrition.
IS SHE DATING? Asked if she’s up to dating again, Gretchen let out a nervous laugh.
The 27-year-old celebrity shook her head, "I think darating naman 'yon, e, kung darating na.
“Si Lord na bahala. I really believe that everything happens for a reason.
"God allowed this to happen because He has a purpose."
And that video message of Robi during the Binibining Pilipinas 2017 coronation last April 30, what was that all about?
Gretchen said, "Actually, yung video kasi, I was able to watch that prior the event itself.
"That was for the Binibining Pilipinas primer.
"And that's why nung pinalabas siya dun, hindi ako masyado nag-react, kasi napanood ko na siya. Parang na-replay lang naman siya.
"Siyempre, yung crowd na yung nag-react to it.
"That's why I was laughing."
"THAT'S IT." Gretchen served as one of the judges at the Binibining Pilipinas 2017 coronation night.
While waiting for the announcement of winners, a replay of the pre-pageant TV special played on the LED screen.
Towards the end, Robi appeared onscreen with a video message for Gretchen.
The I Can Do That host appeared to be hinting at a reconciliation, especially when he said, “I think I could honestly say I am saving up all my love for you.”
Gretchen recalled her initial reaction to the video, "I think, ano, humuhugot lang naman siya."
The former volleyball player sounded unsure, “Ewan ko… hindi ko naman siya masaydong…
“Kasi meron naman kami pinag-usapan na. So, 'yon na 'yon, that's it."
The two Kapamilya TV hosts confirmed their split last March 1 through a joint statement released on Tonight With Boy Abunda.
Both stars insisted that there was no third party involved in their breakup
But rumors circulated that Robi was pursuing international K-Pop idol Sandara Park, which he denied.
“Kung anuman ang ano niyo, it's not true,” he said.
