“It’s been almost been five months, I can say I’m much happier now. The only regret is that I wish that we were able to end civilly or like friends.
“It’s hard, kasi every day in social media, I see his name all over, that's what makes it hard.
“I wish that we had that closure. I wish we were able to talk. I wish I was also able to say my side of the story. Kasi this is the first time I’m telling my side.
“We can’t never unlove a person, that’s what I believe. I still care for him.”
“Siyempre, at first, very emotional, but I accepted it because I know he’s doing it not for himself, but he’s doing it for his family.
“He never wanted the fame, he never wanted the attention. He’s a very simple guy. He’s doing it for his family, for his dad.”
“Hindi naman bad breakup na nagsigawan kami, but it was not good in a way na sana we were happy.
“We had this fantasy where we just want to end things good, so in the end, we can save it. I know what he tells the press also, which is the truth.
“James is very honest, he never lies, he’s very down to earth. Very loyal and faithful.”
As for James, he explained that he broke up with Ericka because he wanted to focus on his showbiz career.
“I wanted take my showbiz career seriously and I found it too hard at the same time –handling both a relationship and work –and I had such a big opportunity. I didn’t want to waste it. She [Villongco] understood this,” James said.
