Says nothing is certain in life so better to keep mum

MANILA, Philippines -- Actress Heart Evangelista is set on dodging another heartbreak, as she prefers to keep mum on her rumored romance with Senator Francis "Chiz" Escudero.

During a press conference for her new show, Evangelista remained tight-lipped on her rumored relationship with Escudero, justifying that it being in the limelight might lead to a premature end.

"Special someone? Do I have one already? Can we not," she told newscast "24 Oras," when quizzed on her "dating" the senator.

"Kasi ang hirap eh, there's nothing certain in life, and then you break up, ayan nanaman. Ang dami ko nang breakup, mas mabuti nang tahimik," she added.

In April, Evangelista ended her relationship with Japanese-Brazilian model Daniel Matsunaga.

Before being linked to Escudero, whose marriage with former wife Christine Flores has been annulled, the former Kapamilya actress admitted dating actor Sid Lucero.

Her breakup with actor Jericho Rosales, who is now in a relationship with TV host Kim Jones, also proved controversial in 2008, when her parents were rumored to be against their relationship.

Now, Evangelista said she intends to simply enjoy her time with Escudero, with whom she has been seen "meeting" numerous times.

"Ano lang 'yon, we're going out, it's fun. Ine-enjoy ko trabaho, 'yung dating-dating, meeting-meeting, ine-enjoy ko lang lahat 'yan," Evangelista said.

"I'm confused kung 'yun ba yung tawag nila ngayon, dating ba 'yan, or going going out, I'm confused, but it's just like that for now. I'm not really in a rush," she said.
