“To me, love is a gift,” said actress Bianca King, who recently broke up with boyfriend Dennis Trillo.
Bianca, however, clarified she was willing to give love only to people who want her to be with them.
“My heart beats only for those who are grateful for my existence,” she stressed in an exclusive interview with the Inquirer. “If you see that they give you love, like the fans for example, you want to give back.”
Asked how she was holding up after her failed one-year relationship with the Dennis, Bianca didn’t mince words: “I’m doing just fine.”
Dennis first admitted to “laying low” from their relationship last December. He confessed to not seeing Bianca for three weeks.
Despite the breakup, Bianca said she has maintained a positive outlook. “I’ve been a better person in 2012 than I was in my entire life,” she declared. “I tried to share what I could with the people around me—love, friendship, even monetary blessings.”
She went on: “As a daughter, I’m not the type to self-praise, but my dad kept saying I’m his hero. To my mom, I’m the biggest blessing.”
The 27-year-old actress shouldered most of the expenses for her Canadian father’s recent quadruple bypass operation. She also took care of him when he suffered an aneurysm in 2011, as well as the recent treatment of “something like skin cancer.” Bianca recently flew to Canada to join her family.
While she’s a relatively good girl, Bianca said she also has a naughty streak. “I’m the type of girl who likes to have fun. I’m not a kill-joy. I’m game for anything.”
She recalled accepting a “very random” invitation from “Sosy Problems” costar Solenn Heussaff to see Paris. “That was naughty. We were supposed to be shooting the film but we had a couple of days blocked off…to go to Paris.”
Bianca, who appears regularly in the GMA 7 Sunday variety show “Party Pilipinas,” said the naughtiest thing she has done so far was “to enter show business” because she was forced to drop out of school for two years .
“My mom kept asking me to go back to school until she got tired of it,” she recalled. “I surprised her one day when I said, ‘Mom, I’m enrolled again.’”
