Jessy Mendiola on Matteo Guidicelli and Sarah Geronimo: “Hindi ako makikiaalam'


062813-jessy_main.jpgAfter playing lovers in Precious Hearts Romance: Paraiso, Jessy Mendiola admitted she almost had a relationship with co-star Matteo Guidicelli. “Hindi, muntik na. Sayang naudlot. Siguro kasi lagi na lang sinasabi na time and career, palaging ganun. Honestly kasi nung Paraiso hindi kami close nung simula, not even nung middle. Nung end lang kami naging close, pinakilala na nga ako sa pamilya niya. Pinakilala ko din siya sa family ko. yung friends niya napakilala din niya sa akin tapos palagi din kaming lumalabas after ng show. Ang dami na ring nagsasabi na, ‘Hala, baka pag tapos na yung Paraiso tapos na rin kayo.’ Sa akin siguro, on hold muna ang paraiso (laughs), Maria Mercedes muna tayo. Para sa akin, napagdesisyonan na naming dalawa na mutual na trabaho na lang muna. Pero I’m not closing nay doors kasi we are friends naman ni Matteo. We still talk. We just talked two days ago, ganun. Happy din ako para sa kanya kasi ang dami niyang trabaho ngayon. Kung pagsasabayin pa namin lahat baka mabaliw pa siya at mag-run, swim at bike na siya away from me (laughs),” she shared during her Maria Mercedes presscon held last June 16 inside ABS-CBN.

After finally admitting to the press about her two-year relationship with JM De Guzman, Jessy said being on Paraiso helped her move on from the breakup during that time. “Nung naghiwalay kami ni JM, bago pa yun umere ang Paraiso. So yung Paraiso nag-start kami mag-tape a year ago. Matagal na talaga siya. Actually masasabi ko na yung Paraiso ang nag-open up sa akin at nag-heal sa akin sa pinagdaanan ko kay JM at sa buhay ko. At least ngayon I can say I’m open now. I’m whole now. At least ngayon pag ginawa ko na ang Maria Mercedes alam ko na kung sino ako at hindi na ako malilito,” she explained.

Jessy denied reports she got jealous of Matteo’s song number with Sarah Geronimo during a US tour. Rumor has it that Matteo even tried to court the Popstar Princess. “Hindi, nahihiya nga ako kay Sarah kasi palagi na lang siya yung nadadawit dito sa pangyayaring ito. May mga nag-ti-tweet sa akin, may mga nagagalit na bakit daw dinadamay si Sarah. Hindi po siya kasali. Nagkataon siguro na nagkaroon sila ng show sa States and wala, ayoko siyang isama sa nangyayari kasi hindi naman talaga. Ba’t naman ako magseselos sa ganun, trabaho yun eh,” she said.

The Maria Mercedes star said she does not know what is the real score between Matteo and Sarah now. “Wala akong alam. Halata naman eh na crush niya talaga si Sarah. Hindi ko alam sa kanila, kung meron man eh di mabuti. I have nothing against it kasi labas naman ako sa nanagyayari sa kanilang dalawa. Ang akin lang, ma-hu-hurt siguro ako kung kaming dalawa involved talaga pero wala eh, hindi naman talaga sa aming tatlo yun eh. kung ano yung nanagyari sa amin ni Matteo ngayon, yun pa rin yun sa dati. Yung sa kanila, sa kanila yun. Hindi ako makikialam,” she added.

Jessy said she has no problem if Matteo and Sarah do become a couple. “Why not? Pareho naman silang singers and parehas naman silang very good performers, why not?” she added.

Jessy revealed she and Matteo are even in talks with Star Magic to do a project together again in the future. The pretty mestiza said there would be no problem if she worked with him again in a series. She does not deny that they almost became a couple. “Mabait talaga si Matteo, sobrang bait niyang tao. Halata naman siguro sa pagdadala niya. He’d very family-oriented and decent so mabait siya. Hindi ko rin kasi alam eh. I really can’t speak for him. But all I can say is, ako ito. Ito yung sinasabi ko. Almost. But we chose to stop it hangga’t maaga pa kasi we chose to focus muna sa trabaho at to be honest, ngayon lang kami napapansin. Ngayon lang kami nabibigyan ng break so mas pinili namin na since we’re working together and in one industry, why not just understand each other and do what we do best. What you hear or what you see is kung ano talaga ang totoo sa amin. Hindi ko masasabing nanligaw talaga na ligaw pero nagparamdam siya. Sobrang halata naman siguro na nagparamdam siya sa akin, pictures pa lang eh halatang halata na. Sino ba namang lalake ang magpapakilala sa babae sa pamilya?” she said.

When asked about the possibility of rekindling a possible romance with the Cebuano actor, Jessy said she is still open to the idea. “Nag-usapan na nga namin na huwag na muna. But we still talk to each other. We’re still friends. Malay niyo, friends can lead to something. Kung paano kami nagsimula,” she said.
