According to her, men in showbiz are always able to have smooth-sailing relationships but for women, it’s a lot of pain.
“Why must it endure pain? With guys, it doesn’t suffer. Nothing is harmed when the males get married and roam the world. So why does it have to suffer when a woman decides to pursue a career? In terms of relationships, I only handle it.
“I’m not in a relationship right now, but I was for the longest time—I’m talking years—and I did a great job of managing it. We are adept at giving time when it is available. I only work while I’m working. I am able to communicate with people when I am free and spend time with them. Balance is the key.” she said.
