Janine Gutierrez is now living independently.
She was taking a break from romance in February 14, hosting new season of ‘Day Off”‘ opposite Kapuso actor Ken Chan on GMA News TV.
Even though there’s no special someone in her life now, Janine said she is still at her happiest and will be celebrating Valentine’s Day with a smile.
In a recent interview, she proudly shared that she finally got a place for herself.
The 27-year-old recently moved to her own condominium unit in San Juan City, which she paid for and personally overseen its construction.
Gutierrez said it is fulfilling to finally see the fruits of her labor.
She always wanted her own place because all her life she does not have a chance to have her own room and her siblings.
The actress shared that it took more than a year to finish the constructions and she was very hands-on in her new home.
She even personally picked the faucet, tiles and curtains for the pad.
Her mother, seasoned actress Lotlot de Leon, father Ramon Christopher and her siblings celebrated Christmas in her new condo a few months ago.
Gutierrez said it feels nice to finally have a place she can call her own and a space she could also share with her whole family.
‘It’s really the best time to grow up, to be more independent and to be responsible, she said.
She does not have any househelp with her. She does everything, from cooking, cleaning and to laundry.
Aside from living independently, Gutierrez is also keen to focus on work this 2017 and take a break from relationships.
Elmo Magalona and Janine have called it quits. It was Gutierrez herself who told a reporter that she and Magalona have decided to end their two-year relationship.
She admitted that their lack of time for each other was one of the reasons behind their breakup.
She clarified that she was not traumatized by her last relationship, but said she wants to focus on different things.
She just feels so light this year and thinks positive this 2017.
She hopes she can have a busy career this time and eventually she will fix their house in Fairview.
She’s also happy that she can give time to her siblings and family.
Gutierrez and Kapuso actor Ken Chan are teaming up as new hosts of reality program ‘Day Off.’
The actress said she’s not only looking forward to bringing new flavor to the show, but also meeting most-deserving and hardworking Filipinos here and abroad.
She expects it to be challenging and fun. She knows she’s in for different adventures and trials but she’s sure she will learn a lot together with the viewers of Day Off.
Together, they’ll laugh and be amazed at their fellow Filipinos’ dedication to work, she said.
Gutierrez added that she’s a fan of the show and even appeared in its past episodes.

Each episode is a new and exciting experience. In the few episodes she has done, she met so many amazing, hardworking Filipinos and she learned so much from them.
