Choosing career over a relationship is something we can and should totally get behind—especially when you’ve been waiting a long time for that huge career break.
So it’s not very hard to buy into Robi Domingo and Gretchen Ho’s reasons for breaking up, right?
“[Like we said] sa statements na ini-release namin, so much is going on,” Robi told Alex Brosas of Manila Bulletin at the press conference of his new show I Can Do That.
“Mas binibigyan namin ng priority kung ano yung nangyayari sa buhay namin kasi ito yung hinihintay namin eh,” he said of the big breaks coming both their way.
Basically, he just rehashed and emphasized the joint statement he and Gretchen released on Wednesday, confirming that the three-year relationship has come to an end.
“There is too much happening for the both of us right now. We have to focus on our careers” a portion of the statement read.
For quite some time now, Robi and Gretchen have been “bubbling under” talents, working hard and showing their talent and their worth with every hosting gig that came their way, no matter how low profile.
“We are just so happy at this. We’ve decided na wala talagang time to grow sa relationship namin. We talked about it,” Robi continued.
As for the rumors linking him with the Pambansang Krung-Krung, Robi immediately put a cap to it: “It’s not true. We’re good friends.”
Ever the gentleman, he asked the public to respect both ladies. “Let’s give the respect that [Sandara] deserves. She has given honor sa atin kahit nasa ibang bansa siya. At the same time, ibigay natin ang respetong kailangan natin ibigay kay Gretchen kasi she’s one great person.”
