Jessy Mendiola’s younger sister Megan got emotional when asked about the biggest misconception about her “Ate” during their guest appearance on Magandang Buhay on Friday, August 11.
“Since ‘pag nasa TV ka, what they see is what they know but ‘yun nga eh, hindi ka nila kilala,” she began.
Trying to hold back tears, Megan continued, “Si ate, mabait siya and sa totoo lang, very generous siya and simple lang na tao so kapag nababash siya or something, nakaka-hurt din,” which also made Jessy cry.
As for Jessy, she said that she would tell her not to mind the bashers. However, the actress added, “Minsan kasi talaga, ‘yung ibang tao lang din talaga parang hindi na ako ‘yung binabash, ‘yung pamilya na. Pag ka gano’n, mas masakit.”
Earlier, Megan described having a big sister like Jessy as “normal,” “Normal lang actually. For me, hindi ko naman siya nakikita na artista siya. Like sister ko siya, like ever since ‘nung bata kami, siya pa rin ‘yun.”
Megan then thanked her sister for sacrificing her studies to be able to provide for their family. She also thanked her for supporting her always and for giving her advice. Jessy, for her part, told Megan to study well and pursue her dreams.
