Aiko Melendez talks about her bikini photo bashers and her relationship with Jomari Yllanna.
On Tonight with Boy Abunda, one of the stars of the teleserye Wildflower, Aiko Melendez, responded to Maja Salvador saying that it’s a dream come true for her to work with the famed actress.
“Thank you, baby girl. The feeling is mutual. I’ve always wanted to work with her because I’ve always believed, Tito Ninong, that in her generation right now, she’s one of the best.”
When asked about her and her son Andre’s relationship with his father, Jomari Yllana, Aiko replied, “Sila ni Andre, Tito Ninong, kahit papaano they talk. Kami naman ni Jom, kahit papaano hindi kami nag-uusap.” She then chided, “Ganyan naman siya. May mga sapi siya, Tito Ninong, ayaw niya akong kausapin.”
Rumor has it that Jomari’s current girlfriend is jealous of the actress. Aiko advised, “Huwag niyo na akong pagselosan. I’ve heard about it but I don’t know if it’s true. If it’s true, this is the time that I’ll assure her, of all people, it’s not me. It shouldn’t be me.”
A recent photo of Aiko in a bikini which was taken by Andre and posted on Instagram went viral. She shared, “I just woke up one day that I wanted to shock the people and I wanted to check myself on picture if I look good. Because for the longest time, Tito Ninong, I was on the heavy side. So nung nakakapa ko na, uy! Nagkakabewang na ako, tingnan ko nga, ayan [ang kinalabasan].”
Having had her share of fans and critics, Aiko has managed to remain positive saying, “Huwag nila akong i-follow. More than the bad comments, mas madami naman yung nakaappreciate nung effort ko. Tito Ninong, hindi biro magpapayat. Hindi talaga. Yung mga nagsasabi na ang dali, yung makapag bash lang sa IG (Instagram), kayo kaya pumunta sa katawan ko? Ang hirap, di ba?”
