After rumors circulated that Jessy Mendiola is exiting “Banana Sundae,” the actress finally confirmed that she is leaving the comedy gag show.
“Tumagal din ako sa 'Banana Sundae,' ang dami kong natutunan, nag-enjoy akong magpatawa, mababait sila, sobrang family talaga sila," she told PEP.
She then denied that she got axed because of her alleged misunderstanding with a wardrobe assistant. Rumors say she was forced to wear a sexy outfit and she didn’t like it.
“Sexy? Ha? Sexy nga ang suot ko dito sa 'ASAP,' tapos ang sayaw pa namin dun sa mga side-side,” she said.
Jessy mentioned that she already patched things up with the wardrobe assistant, who is also close to her boyfriend Luis Manzano.
“Siguro kasalanan ko din kasi sensitive ako pagdating sa ganun. Kapag natataasan ng boses o natatalikuran, nao-offend ako. Iyan 'yung time na okay na, napag-usapan na. Nag-sorry siya, nag-explain siya, nag-explain ako. Okay naman,” she said.
“Kasi close sila [ni Luis], kasi siyempre nafi-feel bad siya 'pag may ganun. Umiiyak din ako nung time na 'yun. I think naman may kanya-kanya lang tayong sensitivity, how we are to other people, how we treat other people. Siguro tingin niya okay lang, tapos ako naman naging over-sensitive lang. Talagang magkaiba lang kaming tao, tapos nangyari,” she added.
After leaving Banana Sundae, she shared that her next projects are already in the works.
