Jennylyn Mercado denied that she has a brewing romance with Ilocos Sur Representative Ronald Singson. There were rumors that the two were seen together in Boracay.
Jen said this is far from the truth because she was never in Boracay recently. It’s impossible for her to be there because she has a soap, a movie and a cooking show.
She doesn’t even have time for her family, Jen said, adding that she has never met Ronald in her life. Also, the actress said she doesn’t have time for a relationship right now.
She thinks it’s a waste of time to be with someone when she’s clearly not ready for it. Jen’s last boyfriend was Luis Manzano, who has rekindled his romance with Angel Locsin.
Meanwhile, Jen revealed she is actually close to Nikka Martinez, the fiancee of her ex-boyfriend Patrick Garcia, who’s also the father of her son, Alex Jazz. Last Christmas, she posted a picture with Alex, Patrick, Nikka and their daughter.
Patrick and Nikka usually visit Jazz, Jen said, adding that she finds Nikka very nice.
This New Year, Jen just plans to spend it with her family after GMA’s countdown.
Her year has recently been capped off by a very special award when she won Best Actress in the recently held 40th Metro Manila Film Festival. Jen said it was truly unexpected that she would win, especially because “English Only, Please” is her first comedy movie.
She and co-star Derek Ramsay, who won Best Actor, have not even talked about their victories yet. Jen said that only showed they weren’t expecting it. Derek was unable to attend the festival.
The movie won several other awards. But aside from that, Jen wants “English Only, Please” to be able to prove its mettle at the box office.
What she wants is for the viewers to leave the cinemas with smiles on their faces. She doesn’t want them to regret spending money on their movie.
