Jomari Yllana has closed any door to a possible reconciliation with ex-wife Aiko Melendez. He said they are simply designed to have colorful lives, but not to love and live with each other.
Both of them are beautiful, talented and gifted, so they will be like fireworks once they decided to get back together. They always spark and clash against each other.
They gave themselves too much heartache, Jomari said, but that was not the main problem. They gave Andrei, their son, a burden to carry because of their separation. That is something they don’t want him to see again.
The children (Aiko has a daughter with ex-husband Martin Jickain) are simply happy to see them together as friends. Jomari said Marthena is actually very close to him, and she calls him Dada Jom.
They already tried working out their relationship, but to no avail. Jomari said he is always open to spending time with his ex-wife. They took a vacation to Bicol last year, for example, but they did this for the kids.
They did not want them to expect that they are back together as a couple, so they are lucky that they are able to understand the difference.
Jomari explained that he and Aiko are sweet to each other, but Aiko forgets about him when she has a new boyfriend. “Sweet kami, pero hanggang doon na lang… marami kaming gusot sa buhay na kailangan naming ayusin.”
It is better if they just fix themselves and take care of the kids, Jomari added.
He didn’t deny, though, that he wants to settle down already by the time he reaches 40 years old. He’s already 38. Of course, he gets lonely when he goes home and finds no one there.
There are times when he’s exhausted from taping “The Half Sisters” and he needs someone to be there for him. Jomari said he lives with his mother and younger brother Paulie.
He has zero lovelife now, adding that he hasn’t met and spent time with anyone other than his assistant, Radha, actress Jean Garcia and Aiko.
Meanwhile, Jomari is planning to go back to school, but he needs to take an acceleration test from the Department of Education because he didn’t finish his secondary school.
He wants to do this as soon as possible because once the K12 program is implemented, he would have to take a lot more tests than the usual.
