Actor Luis Manzano has defended actress Jessy Mendiola from malicious reports that she was the cause of his breakup with actress Angel Locsin.
“Willing ako ipusta mga pinaghirapan ko sa buhay na she (Jessy) had nothing to do with the break up. That I can answer,” said Manzano, during an interview on “Tonight With Boy Abunda” on ABS-CBN.
“Nowadays people are focusing on blood. People are focusing on negativity. People are looking for the next mistake.
It’s uso na naghahanap sila ng mali. I can say the most beautiful thing;
“I can answer from my heart pero meron at meron na maghahanap ng mali. Why? I don’t know baka may problema sila sa buhay nila. I don’t know;
“We are already prejudged. Kahit may nagawa tayong maganda o hindi we have been judged ng karamihan. Mas alam pa nila ang tutoo kesa sa akin,” said Manzano, 34, host of the Kapamilya game show “Family Feud.”
Locsin and Manzano split early this year. These days, Manzano is reportedly courting Mendiola, who was named the sexiest woman in the land according to an online poll conducted by FHM Philippines magazine. Locsin has said that she is still hurting following her breakup with the actor.
Mendiola has said in an interview that Manzano has a chance to win her heart.
“I remember there was an issue not a long time ago na apparently may waiter kaming binastos ni Billy (Crawford).
Someone posted on Instagram saying na pinapatanggal ko sya sa trabaho dahil mali ’yung bigay nyang steak sa akin;
“Parang sinasabi ko na ‘eto malakas ako or maimpluwensya ako.’ Umabot pa sa point na dinuraan ko raw ang sapatos nya.
And people were saying na ‘ay grabe pala si Luis. Antayin mo Luis ang buhay parang gulong ’yan hindi laging nasa itaas;’
“The truth is it never happened. People believe. No matter what I answer about myself, about Jessy, about certain parties being mentioned, hahanapan ng mali ’yan. I will talk again about this craving for blood,” Manzano added.
Asked if he and Jessy are sweethearts, Manzano said: “It’s a journey.”
When asked what part of journey, the actor said: “That answer will come at the right time.”
Manzano said that he and Jessy have discussed about these reports which allegedly made her the cause of the split.
“Even if walang rason na pwedeng maging kontrabida ang isang tao, nagiging kontrabida sya. We know the truth. It’s not an issue na kailangan naming paulit ulit pagusapan. She knows she has nothing to do with the breakup or a third party’s break up,” said the son of Rep. Vilma Santos-Recto and actor Edu Manzano.
“So nakakatawa nga lang na people still insist. Kahit na ipanotaryo pa naming ang sagot namin people will still believe in what they believe in,” he added.
Manzano also said that the game show “Minute To Win It” is coming back on ABS-CBN.
The first season of the game show debuted on Kapamilya network on January 13, 2013 until February 21, 2014. The second season will premiere on July 18, 2016.
