Matapos ang paghihiwalay nila ng asawang si Eric Villarama noong nakaraang taon, inihayag ni celebrity mom at chef na si Donita Rose na naghilom na ang kaniyang puso at nakapag-move on na sa nangyari.
Pag-amin ni Donita, kinailangan muna niya ng panahon para harapin ang pinagdaanan bago muling sumabak sa telebisyon.
"I think I just needed time to process everything that is going through in my personal life and I think medyo fully-healed na ako at nakapag-move on."
"I went through this lengthy process of realizing na I think I need to completely forgive."
"It's really change me. And now I'm able to think straight again. I can laugh at life and enjoy everything that I'm going through now," ayon kay Donita.
Single daw si Donita ngayon at masaya rin siya para kay Eric.
"I've been single since the separation. It's been like three and a half years. I've never dated, never thought about anything because I just really wanted my heart to heal first."
"He's happy now and I'm happy for him," pahayag niya.
Dagdag pa ni Donita, "As you can see, probably, things are much different now and so much better and happy again."
Sa press conference ng kanyang bagong cooking capsule show na, "Heart Mate Kitchen," na ginanap sa GMA Network nitong Martes, sinabi ni Donita na nakatulong din sa kaniya ang pagiging pokus niya sa kaniyang hilig sa pagluluto.
"After I did the last soap, I really needed a bit of a break because I was also going through something personally. So I took a break last year, and I just focused on Jolly Heartmate Canola Oil."
Ipalalabas ang "Heart Mate Kitchen" sa mga commercial gaps ng "Unang Hirit," "Kapuso Festival" at "Sarap Diva," kung saan ipakikita ni Donita ang kaniyang mga masasarap at madadaling sundin na recipes.
Bukod pa rito, makakasama niya rin sa bawat episode ang mga Kapuso stars upang makitikim sa kaniyang recipes.
"This is actually my third year, I can say na medyo hindi lang siya nakatulong sa career ko in terms of me wanting to pursue [being a] culinary chef"
Pahayag ni Donita sa kanyang passion sa hosting at pagluluto, "What matters is your passion drives you. I could say na that there are some people na walang culinary background, pero magaling sila sa ginagawa nila."
"I don't believe in competition either, I believe that everybody has their own mark in this world... My strength is really hosting and cooking at the same time. So I decided to focus on that."
Sinabi rin ni Donita, na mas health conscious na raw siya ngayon.
"When Jolly approached me to become their grand ambassador, it was perfect timing because I believe that one of the first things that we do when we cook is we cook with oil. So naging revelation sa akin na one of the first things na dapat nating palitan sa diet natin is the kind of oil that we use," aniya.
Nakatakdang bumisita si Donita, kasama ang GMA 7 at Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil, sa Higala-ay festival sa Cagayan de Oro at Raniag Festival sa Vigan nitong taon. -- FRJ/KVD, GMA News
