Arci Muñoz recently revealed that she and her boyfriend of over three years, Badi Del Rosario, have parted ways in December.
But even if their relationship didn't work out, Arci only had the kindest words to say about her ex. In an interview on Tonight With Boy Abunda, the actress talked about her feelings for Badi and the future of their friendship:
"I respect him. I do want to protect him. I want to take good care of him. And alam mo iyon, we've been together for almost four years, siyempre iyong pagka-kumportable ko sa kanya—siya iyong pinaka-best friend ko eh.
So ang masasabi ko lang, kahit hindi man magkabalikan agad, or hindi man mangyari iyon, rest assured ako na alam kong magiging mabuti kaming magkaibigan."
The Kapamilya star’s breakup came after her career high in 2016 with a slew of big projects under her belt—the Star Cinema hit Always Be My Maybe, hugot rom-com Camp Sawi, and primetime soap Magpahanggang Wakas. She spoke honestly of how she didn’t invest enough of her time for her relationship:
"'Nung 2016 naging OK iyong career ko tapos medyo naapektuhan iyong love life. Ang sabi ko sa sarili ko, 'Kaya ko iyang pagsabayin. I'm not like the rest.'
Sabi kasi nila kapag maganda iyong career mo, hindi maganda iyong magiging love life mo. Ayaw kong maging ganoon eh.
Pero ang hirap pala talaga. 'Nung naging sobrang busy ko, nawalan ako ng time. Wala na nga akong time para sa sarili ko at parents ko, pati sa kanya. So naging mahirap."
