MANILA, Philippines - Actress-host Kris Aquino is not dating anyone as of the moment.

Aquino made the statement amid reports that she is now dating actor Diether Ocampo, her leading man in 2010 Metro Manila Film Festival entry “Dalaw.”

In an interview with “The Buzz,” the President's youngest sister said she is enjoying her life as a free woman.

"I'm enjoying my work, I'm enjoying my family. I'm enjoying my freedom. Mas madaling mag-trabaho ng wala kang iniilagan. The good thing about me is I'm seeing people but I'm not dating," Aquino said.

Aquino is now working on the annulment of her 5-year marriage to star cager James Yap. She and the father of her youngest son, Baby James, are good friends though.

She said she just recorded an album that features songs about her life and a poem dedicated to her estranged husband.

"It's a compilation of all the previous albums na nagawa, sinabi ko naman kay James last na yan, close chapter na tayo. May poem ako doon tungkol sa kanya, tungkol sa akin," Aquino said.

The actress-television host also called him up after she met an accident in Cebu where she and the staff of reality show "Pilipinas Got Talent (PGT)" held an audition recently.

"Nahulog ako sa backstage kaya tapyas ang tuhod ko ngayon. In all fairness, naman maganda ang benefit na ang dati mong partner ay atleta kasi natawagan naman si James para magtanong kung ano ang dapat ipahid doon sa team doctor nila, noong una kasi bukol na bukol, ang laki," she said.

But even after the accident, Aquino still did her job as one of the judges of PGT Season 2.

"Tiring but exhilarating, may halong tension din sa amin kasi nga sobrang taas noong ratings noong susundan. It's really been such a broad spectrum of talents and it's coming itong February,” she said.

Aside from PGT, Aquino will also host the longest-running game show in the world, "The Price is Right."

For the first time in the history of the game show, it will be hosted by a female personality.

"Masaya kasi I played all the games, I have to play it in order to understand," she said.
