ROXANNE Barcelo says she has remained unattached after her breakup with Will Devaughn last year. What’s the reason they called it quits?

“Up to now, I cannot cite a single reason,” she says. “It’s more like little things na nagpatung-patong and then, one day, we realized that the relationship is not working anymore. Hindi ko masasabing may mali sa kanya, or sa akin. It’s just hindi siguro synchronized ang mga bagay-bagay sa amin. I cannot say anything negative about him. He’s still a great guy. I’ll be happy kung makakita na siya ng someone new.”

Have they considered patching things up and reconciling? “Ay, no need na. For me, 'yun na yon. Wala nang sequel or part 2. Kasi, for me, I feel so happy now, I’m enjoying my freedom, so chill lang. I’m not searching for someone new, but kung may darating na okay, I’m willing to welcome him. But hindi ako nagmamadali.”

In “Abay Babes”, she plays Goldie. “Sa barkada namin nina Cristine Reyes, Nathalie Hart and Kylie Versoza, ako 'yung pinakapangit. At talagang pinapangit ako rito, deglamourized aketch, pinagsuot ako ng dentures na protruding ang teeth ko. Pero 'yun na nga, kahit naturingang mas magaganda sila, pero ako ang pinakaunang ikakasal sa barkada namin at sila ang mga abay ko. At ang groom ko is si Tom Rodriguez lang naman.”

And how is it working with Tom? “I was so surprised. Malalim pala siya. Sa set, while waiting for our take, he shares his talent with me in drawing and animation at ang galing niya. Magaganda ang views niya sa buhay at na-appreciate ko naman ang sharing niya sa akin. At ang guwapo niya talaga. Ang swerte nga ni Carla Abellana.”
