Venus closes door on Andrei
MANILA -- For Venus Raj, there is no longer any chance of getting back together with ex-boyfriend and former co-host Andrei Felix.
"Yes, it's finished," the 24-year-old beauty queen said in an interview on "Showbiz Inside Report" aired Saturday.
"Ako po kasi 'yung klase ng babae na pagbibigyan kita kasi mahal kita, pero once na ako na 'yung nagsabi na ayoko na, hindi ko na kaya, that's it, wala na," she said.
Raj confirmed her separation from Felix, her boyfriend of one year, early this month. In earlier interviews, she admitted that the break-up happened over the phone.
Asked if she and Felix have had the chance to address the separation personally, Raj said, "Maraming beses ko nang sinabi nang personal. Sa tingin ko, this is the time na para naman na talagang mahinto na."
In the earlier TV guestings together, Felix had been vocal of his intentions to marry Raj, saying she is "the one."
"Pero hindi lahat ng inaakala mo ay nangyayari, o hindi lahat ng ini-expect ay iyon ang nangyayari," Raj said. "Hindi lahat ng relasyon na nag-start nang maayos, kung anuman ang nakikita nila sa telebisyon, e 'yun na ang katotohanan."
Explaining her decision to break up with Felix, Raj said their relationship had come to a point where she came close to compromising her values.
"Sa isang relasyon kasi pag mahal na mahal mo 'yung tao, nabubulagan ka. Minsan dahil blinded ka, dahil mahal mo, minsan 'yung sinasabi ng pamilya mo, o ang nakikita mong actions ninyong dalawa, kahit alam mong hindi tama, parang naggi-give in ka nalang kasi mahal mo, e," she said.
"Ayaw na ayaw kong ma-compromise unang-una 'yung values ko, kasi 'yun lang ang kayamanang meron ako, e," she said.
Raj admitted that Felix is trying to win her back, "[pero] decided ako sa ginawa ko, at alam ko tama 'yung ginawa ko."
