Billy Crawford Breaks His Silence : A Heart-Breaking Break-Up with Nikki Gil on the Buzz

Wazzup Pilipinas!

I just wanted to give a short comment about this latest drama that unfolded on national TV - again on...... The Buzzzzzz! with Tito Boy Abunda.

It reminded me of the KC Concepcion and Piolo Pascual break-up, but this time its the man who opened up and went teary-eyes infront of the whole Philippines to see. But I'm so sorry coz his forehead was a bit distracting so I was laughing out loud instead of crying with the poor guy.

But when he put all the blame on himself - that caught my attention.

Why was I watching a talk show on a Sunday afternoon when I was supposed to be busy working in front of a computer? My wifey is the culprit! I was just having a short coffee break and the TV was glued on the Kapamilya network with the dreaded talk show airing at that very moment. Hurray for that!

Nikki Gil was Billy Crawford's girlfriend for 4 and a half years.

Billy denied that there was a third party involved in the break up and that his reuniting with his parents has nothing to do with the rumors and speculation spreading around. "It all boils down to me" he said. and he thought that he needed to open up before leaving the country.

He claims that he has forgotten who he really was and so he is now in search of the previous him after 26 long years in the entertainment industry.

“That’s why I’m here, because I didn’t want to just leave and not say anything, and then for everybody to attack her (Gil). And for everybody to speculate, to guess, whatever… For some reason, I needed to be with my mom and dad.

“I have to start from scratch. I have to start from… where did I come from? I came from my parents. I need to try and find what was making me happy before, who I was, and I just want to be with my family.”

“I’ve been everywhere, and this is the first time I’ve ever felt this way. That’s why I ask everyone, do not blame Nikki. She has no fault. I’m not a perfect guy. I’m not a perfect person. I’ve done some things in my life that I regret. And she, she supported me. She understood. She was there. But I tend to go home by myself,” Crawford told “The Buzz” host Boy Abunda.

“I’m the one who’s completely lost and I’m searching. I asked her this. You know, give me that chance to find myself since it’s very difficult. I tend to hurt her,” he added.

“I don’t want to continue to hurt her because if I continued with this relationship, in the long run, talagang ‘di na talaga kami magkakatugma eh,” he said. “We don’t see eye to eye on things. We’re not on the same page anymore.”

“She fought for it,” he said. “I tried, but she really stuck it out, I have to admit. And I’m admitting this because I respect her.”

“I just wasn't there. I wasn't myself,” he added.

Billy does not want to admit that he might have fallen out of love with Nikki Gil, all he is saying is that he needed to find himself first and is now sacrificing the relationship because he wants to be fair to Nikki Gil.

Sad ending for a love team that almost seemed to last a lifetime. They were idolized and looked up to, just like how fans idolized KC Concepcion and Piolo Pascual before. However, I think showbiz couples will forever be tainted with uncertainties because aren't they there just to entertain us.

I've heard of many "arranged" love teams so they can attract more attention and go beyond their dwindling popularity. I guess the love team could have been just a show, and now one has realized he needs to get out of the show and go back to the real world to find the real him.

But wait!.....This entire drama could also be a show!!!!. Orchestrated so the people will start talking about them. We do realize that they are not really that popular as compared to the other love teams. They are way poast their teenage years unlike other love teams out there that are at the prime of their youth. Later we might see the couple reuniting after all this ruckus. After all, "It's Showtime!" for both of them that might be willing to do this whole show just to get back in the limelight.

  1. So sad for Billy and Nikki. After months of being together, it ended to a break-up. They were so sweet I thought in the end, it will end in a wedding. But I was wrong, Billy said he had no time for his girl during the interview, everyone does. So let this be a lesson, give time to the girl whom you think is the one because it may just result the same way as Billy.

  2. This article made me sad. I don't know why. Maybe because most of the people idolize them and their relationship. No one's expecting that this break-up will happen after 4 and a half months of happy and strong relationship. Maybe Billy is somehow correct to let Nikki know what he's up to, because she's his girlfriend and it's her right to know everything about his boyfriend. I don't believe that "Nothing lasts forever". Because in the right time, at the right place, and with the right person, something can last forever.
