CONGRESSWOMAN Vilma Santos-Recto of the 6th District of Batangas has said that she does not interfere with the personal affairs of her son Luis Manzano, especially his love life.
“Alam niya kung saan siya masaya, alam niya ang tama, alam niya ang mali. I am just here to guide him. He is old enough, mature enough to handle his life,” said Santos when asked about the real score between her son and rumored girlfriend Jessy Mendiola during an interview on DZMM.
Santos also said that she and her son have not discussed his wedding plans or raising a family.
“Hindi ko pwedeng panghimasukan kasi ang mas worse, magdesisyon siya tapos masisira rin. Siya naman ang nakakaramdam noon eh,” the veteran actress said.
Santos has earlier said that she has met Mendiola on several occasions.
Mendiola said: “Sobrang bait n’ya, sobrang warm n’ya sa amin. When I got there, s’ya talaga ’yung unang bumaba. Sabi n’ya ‘Welcome! Come in! Come in!’”
Sobrang bait n’ya tapos she gave me a tour sa bahay nila and she showed me all the pictures. Her picture with Michael Jackson. Sabi ko, ‘Wow! Someone as big as her giving me a tour in her humble home,’” she said.
Mendiola also said that she did not talk about marriage with Ate Vi. “Pinaalala lang n’ya ’yung pagkain ko at diet.
Other than that, wala na kaming pinag-usapan.”
In October, Mendiola said that she would love to marry Manzano.
“Yes,” said Mendiola, when asked if she would like to marry Manzano at this point, during an interview on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” on ABS-CBN recently.
But Mendiola, who will turn 24 in December, refused to confirm if she and Manzano were officially a couple. She still refused to label her relationship with the actor.
“Ang hirap pero nakikita naman kami ng mga tao. So uulitin ko na lang ’yun, what you see is what you get,” the actress said.
“We are very happy and we are just taking whatever… basta kung saan kami pupunta magkasama kami. Siguro dapat s’ya (Luis) ang tanungin n’yo. Do I have a minute to win it?” she laughed.
