Jessy Mendiola shared what transpired when she had a meet-up with Vilma Santos recently. The actress shared that she was invited by the Congresswoman to have dinner with her.
"They actually invited me for dinner and 'yun nga she was kind enough to ask me if how I was. She advised us to just be happy as long as wala kaming ginagawang masama. We just go on with our lives," she said in an interview at FHM's 100 Sexiest Party on Tuesday, July 26, 2014.
She admitted that she got nervous initially. "Sobra kinabahan ako pero sobrang bait kasi niya so nakakatuwa kasi pagpasok ko pa lang don sa bahay nila sobrang welcome na, ganyan so I can attest na talagang mabait si Congresswoman Vi."
Jessy was also asked by the reporters about the real score between her and Luis Manzano. Are they officially together? "Di pa," she replied.
The actress was also asked about her recent statement about Angel Locsin. In an interview, Jessy was quoted saying "I admired her and now it's out of the window," after Angel commented about her and Luis.
"Siguro to answer that question actually I've promised myself and the people around me that that's going to be the last time I am going to answer that issue but siguro at that time I was very hurt and you know how people are when they are hurt, sad and angry or whatever they got to say things that are really not well-thought of but siguro 'yun ang nararamadam ko at that time, 'yun," Jessy said.
On being hailed as the Sexiest Woman of 2016 by FHM, Jessy Mendiola hopes that good things will continue coming in.
"Feeling ko ito na parang sana magtuloy-tuloy na 'to kasi alam naman nating lahat na I wasn't really... parang feeling ko I was just floating for the past years and now that a little limelight has been shown upon me I feel really happy and I feel really blessed and lucky despite of all the intrigues, the issues thrown at me," she said.
She added, "Kasi people get to see lang this eh kung ano 'yung nakikita nila on TV and what other people say but really when they get to know the whole story and all the sides of the story may kanya-kanya tayong opinyon at may kanya-kanya tayong kakampihan. Para sa akin lang wala eh ganon talaga siguro, magkakaroon talaga ng bashers, magkakaroon talaga ng mga haters but I'm not the only one who is being bashed, I am not the only one who is being hated but hell I'm the sexiest woman right now and I'm just really happy so I'm just going to leave it at that."
With the intrigues that she and Luis have encountered since news about their growing romance surfaced, did dealing with the challenges made their bond stronger?
"Actually he was very kind enough to take over my Instagram account and delete the bad comments and block all the haters and yeah I could say that mas tumibay, sabi nga niya it's a journey," she said.
