Melai Cantiveros said she is in no rush to be in another relationship and is not keen on getting back with former boyfriend Jason Francisco. Just last week, Kris Aquino revealed on Kris TV the possibility of rekindling the romance between her to co-hosts, Melai and Jason. She said that Jason is trying to win back Melai, who seemed to be less enthusiastic about the idea.
“Okay naman kami, friends naman kami ni Jason,” Melai explained at the press conference of the upcoming late-night gag show, Banana Nite, which will premiere on February 25, Monday, after Bandila. She further added, “Hindi pa kami nagkabalikan pero basta… wag muna… mag-chill muna kami. Nanliligaw siya pero parang hinay-hinay lang.”
Melai also confirmed Kris’s revelation last week on her daily talk show that Jason wrote a letter to her, saying that he sees himself growing old with Melai. “Totoo ‘yon lahat, hindi naman kami nagsisinungaling sa Kris TV. Nagsulat talaga siya. Hindi rin naman ako makapagsinungaling kay Miss Kris. Hindi ko rin naman matago ‘yon kasi alam mo naman si Miss Kris, love na love n’ya rin kami. Shinare na namin… nanliligaw siya (Jason) ulit. Nagparamdam siya. Maghintay na lang siya kung kailan ako magiging okay.”
The comedienne explained that she is in no rush to be in a commitment, especially now that she has a number of projects, namely Banana Split, Banana Nite, I Dare You, and Apoy Sa Dagat. Melai also said that many things have changed since she and Jason broke up last year. “We’re friends na rin, pero kung palagi naman siyang andyan kasi nage-enjoy na ako sa buhay ko ngayon, di natin alam sa future.”
Though Melai believes that Jason has become a better person and more caring nowadays, the former Pinoy Big Brother housemate related that their relationship is better now than when they were together. “Kasi kung magkarelasyon kami, lagi kaming nag-aaway,” she revealed. Melai added that she also goes out with friends to enjoy her being single.
She also revealed that Jason asked her via text message if she is seeing anyone. “Sabi ko, ‘Di ko alam kung nagpaparamdam,’” Melai supposedly replied. This allegedly hurt Jason who asked his former girlfriend why was she looking for a relationship and why couldn’t she wait.
Melai explained to the members of the press that this does not mean that she is intent on looking for a boyfriend, but reasoned that she just wants to enjoy life and gain new friends.
