Jessy Mendiola admits she feels pressured whenever she gets asked about questions related to marriage.
After Anne Curtis took the internet by storm with her sentiments on repeatedly getting asked about marriage and pregnancy by the press, another celebrity spoke out on the said issue.
Jessy, who is the newest face of aesthetic clinic SkinCell, reiterated the impactful remark of the It’s Showtime host when asked by the press if she feels the same way whenever the same question gets raised.
Now in the third year of her relationship with Luis Manzano, the Sandugo star admitted that getting asked about it puts a lot of pressure not just to her but to other women as well.
"I understand where she's coming from kasi ako rin, there was a time na palagi akong natatanong about marriage, kung kailan ako ikakasal," she told the entertainment press.
She then went on: “Sometimes we get pressured, kaming mga babae. I understand her side kasi they have their personal lives. People don't know what's happening, di ba? Malay mo they're trying.”
"Siguro once or twice is okay. Pero 'pag paulit-ulit na, I think dapat medyo i-respect na lang din natin 'yung ano ng girls."
But the 27-year-old Kapamilya star particularly noted that even non-celebrities get asked the same questions in ordinary situations as well.
"I'm sure you guys know that," she told the female members of the press. "Di lang naman sa presscons or sa media, pati sa family reunions 'Kailan ka na ikakasal?' 'Jowa nga wala pa ako, kasal na agad, di ba?' Let's just respect each other,” she said.
While she feels for everyone who go through the same agonizing situation, she also admitted that she couldn’t blame other people for thinking that she and Luis give off a “wedding vibe.”
"Siguro Lu and I give out that vibe na ready na kami, and it's not necessarily a bad thing. It's just that, you know, huwag na lang sanang paulit-ulit," she stated.
"Balitaan na lang namin kayo,” she said, referring to her wedding plans with Luis Manzano.
“Hindi ako napipikon. Dati mas nape-pressure pa ako. Ngayon sabi ko pa kay Luis siguro ganun na ‘yung vibe natin. Pakasal na ‘yung next step. Kasi ganun na ‘yung napapakita natin sa mga tao. Kumbaga ‘yung ibang tao ‘yung na-eexcite for us. Kumbaga kelan na? Ano hindi ako napapikon. Wala,” she said, explaining that she doesn’t get easily angered on her part.
In a separate interview, Jessy teased about her wedding plans: “Matagal pa. Oo napag-uusapan na namin. Kahit nga ‘yung kulay ng - pero siyempre hindi ko muna sasabihin,” she said, chuckling.
