After her nonstop taping for her daytime soap Precious Hearts Romances Presents Paraiso, Jessy Mendiola rewarded herself with a four-day trip to Cebu along with three non-showbiz friends during the recent Holy Week break. They left Manila last Wednesday and stayed at the Plantation Bay Resort for three days—basking in the sun, swimming, food-tripping and enjoying the night life that Cebu has to offer.
But what was supposedly a perfect holiday break with the barkada turned out to be a kilig vacation with her teleserye leading man-slash-rumored boyfriend Matteo Guidicelli as seen on the Instagram photos of the two that quickly spread on the internet. According to a credible source of Push.abs-cbn.com, the actor joined them for dinner last Friday night before heading home to his family’s private beach resort. Apparently, the actor couldn’t meet them earlier since he also participated in a triathlon race held at Bantayan Island.
It was a sweet gesture on Matteo’s part because he already invited Jessy and her friends to spend the whole Saturday at the Guidicellis’ beach place. But he insisted on seeing Jessy that Friday night just so they can hang out together. Then the following day, he personally picked her up at Plantation Bay and drove all the way back to his family’s private resort.
The rumored couple looked so happy as they toured around the Guidicellis’ beach property. Aside from hitting the beach, Matteo also brought Jessy to their mini turtle sanctuary, drove around in an ATV, and event went speed boating.
But perhaps the highlight of this unforgettable trip was when Matteo invited Jessy to dinner with his family and relatives. Our source further shared that the Guidicellis seemed to be close-knit and genuinely nice bunch of people as they made the actress feel welcome instantly. In fact, Jessy easily gelled with one of Matteo’s closest cousins as well as his grandpa whom the actor is very fond of.
Does this mean there’s truth to the rumors that Matteo and Jessy are already a couple? Based on their recent taped interview with The Buzz, the two are taking their time getting to know each other better. But from the looks of it, there seems to be huge chemistry between them on and off screen that it wouldn’t be a surprise if they become real-life sweethearts anytime soon.
In the meantime, Jessy and Matteo headed back to Manila early last Sunday and went straight to Zambales for the last few taping days of Precious Hearts Romances Paraiso, which is now on its final week. Their team-up actually gained a huge fan base since the soap started last year and many of them are clamoring for Jessy and Matteo to have a follow-up project.
