Jessy Mendiola on dating Sam Milby: 'Kung kami sasabihin ko naman eh'


113013-Jessy_main.jpgAfter recently being appointed as honorary ambassador for the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO), Jessy Mendiola said she is too busy with her career to think about finding love right now. The Maria Mercedes star is currently rumored to have suitors like Sam Milby, Jeric and Jeron Teng of the UAAP and her co-star Jake Cuenca.

Of the four, Sam is the only one to have publicly admitted to be courting Jessy, which some say gives him an edge over the competition. “Kasi nung interview na yun parang tinatanong nila sa akin kung bakit daw lamang si Sam sa iba, siguro sa tingin nila lamang siya kasi siya lang naman yung umamin, siya lang yung nagsabi na, 'Yes, I am courting her.' Pero for me generally speaking, maganda naman talaga sa isang lalake yung bukas siya, kahit sino naman eh, kung nagsasalita siya tungkol sa ‘yo. Pero sa ngayon wala naman masyado,” she admitted. Jessy even agreed with the press about maybe inviting Sam with her on her next visit to Korea. “Sa shopping ko sya dadalhin para ililibre niya ako (laughs),” she joked.

Jessy clarified the status of her rumored suitors. “Lahat nga sila vocal kaya nga hindi ko rin alam kung ano yung specific na sinasabi nila sa interview kung sino lamang. Siguro lahat sila naglalamangan sa isa't isa (laughs). Si Jake hindi na kami nagkakasama sa taping kasi unit one ako, unit two naman siya. Sa takbo ng story namin ngayon magkahiwalay na kami. Nag-uusap pa rin naman kami lagi pero I would not say na nanliligaw siya kasi wala pa naman for me, meron kasing isang concrete na masasabi mo na nanliligaw talaga siya, na official na nanliligaw siya,” she admitted.

Jessy said her mom is a big factor in her decision when it comes to choosing a suitor. “Sobrang importante ang opinion ng mom ko kaya every time na merong nanliligaw sa akin, palagi kong sinasabi kung sino or ano ginagawa niya. Si mama nga rin daw nahihirapan eh kasi si Sam dumalaw na sa kanya, si Jake nagpadala ng paella, yung Teng brothers hindi naman kasi sila nanliligaw eh so hindi ko din masabi. Mommy ko naman kahit sino naman eh,” she added.

Jessy also put an end to persistent rumors saying she and Sam are already a couple. “Hindi, hindi kami kasi kung kami sasabihin ko naman eh. Pero hindi talaga. Hindi eh, ang dami ko pang kailangan gawin. So much things to do, I have a long way to go so for me kahit nga yung Maria Mercedes sinasabi nila na sobrang tatak daw sa mga tao. Pag naglalakad ako sa mall may mga sumisigaw ng, 'Si senor!' at kumakanta ng theme song at gumigiling sa gitna ng mall. Nakakatuwa lang na people are starting to recognize me with my own name and people are appreciating my efforts,” she shared.

The sexy actress said she would not repeat what happened to her relationship with JM De Guzman, a relationship she admitted to only after they broke up. She said her friendship with Sam is different. “Hindi naman kasi yung kay JM naman ibang usapan naman yun eh, madaming reasons kung bakit hindi namin inaamin. Dati yun bata pa ako. Ngayon definitely aaminin ko pero kung may finish line man iurong natin siya hindi pa ako ready (laughs). Hindi pa ako handa. Ako personally sasabihin ko naman ito sa inyo pero sa ngayon hindi pa ako handa,” she said.

When asked to comment about JM's father denying that she had reached out to his son, Jessy explained the real situation. “Hindi naman kasi aako nag-reach out sa kanya ng pag-text. Meron akong common friend na sinabi ko sa interview before na siya yung nagpapadala ng message. Humingi kasi siya ng birthday message so pinaabot ko yung message. No communication. Pero para akin kasi, mas mabuti na huwag na lang din natin guluhin yung tao. Okay na siya eh. Tapos na lahat yun. Move on na lang din tayo,” she said.
