Mark Herras wants to finish the debt issue with Nadia Montenegro, the mother of his ex-girlfriend, Ynna Asistio. Mark said Nadia never borrowed money from him when he and Ynna were still together.
“Wala ngang utang! Wala nga. Wala! Wala! Never, never, never. Ako pa, sa kuripot kong ito? Hindi, never silang nangutang sa akin. Hindi talaga, hindi talaga. Hindi talaga. Hindi talaga, mamatay man ako, hindi talaga.”
He wanted to say this because there were some bashers on Twitter who are saying that Nadia borrowed money from Mark, and that was the reason why he and Ynna broke up. These were the rumors even before Mark admitted to fathering a child with a GMA handler.
Mark said that back when he and Ynna were still dating, the only thing he did for her family was to buy the grocery and liquor when they are vacationing in Subic.
He added that he and Ynna are okay now despite their issues before. Mark said though that he won’t be inviting Ynna to the baptism of his daughter, Ada, on May 16 because it might be insulting to her.
Ynna accepts Ada though, Mark said, adding that his former flame is very fond of kids and babies.
Recently, Mark gave former girlfriend and on-screen partner Jennylyn Mercado a bouquet of flowers because this year is the 10th anniversary of their loveteam.
They were launched by Starstruck in 2004. Mark said if they didn’t break up, he and Jennylyn would spend their 10th year as a couple too. However, he said he has no regrets about his relationship with the actress-singer. In fact, they have a better relationship now than before.
He is not closing his doors on Jennylyn, but as of now, Mark is not interested in entering into a new commitment since he’s busy being a father to Ada.
Mark didn’t say anything to Jennylyn about Ada because he kept it a secret even to his bestfriend, Rainier Castillo. He did tell her about it after admitting it on national television.
He and Jennylyn remain friends to this day, and Mark is even the godfather of Jennylyn’s son with former boyfriend Patrick Garcia. Jen and Mark are both single for now after Jen broke up with Luis Manzano late last year.
As for Mark, he and the Ada’s mother are not together since what happened to them was just a simple affair. He sees Ada every Sunday and sends her back home to her mother at night.
Ada is bringing Mark’s surname. He also promised to be active in his daughter’s life. He knows how to make her milk anymore, and is looking forward to changing her diapers.
Mark kidded that he may not be able to give Jennylyn a gift for her birthday this May because Ada will be baptized. One of Ada’s godparent, Enzo Pineda, asked Mark what Ada needs. Mark said it’s up to Enzo already what to give.
Enzo said he will take care of the pushcart, which he meant was the stroller, Mark laughed. Alden Richards, another godparent, also said he will give something to Ada even though he won’t be physically present in her baptism.
Yasmien Kurdi advised Mark not to spend so much on the baptism since he must prepare for Ada’s first birthday. Yasmien also has kids of her own.
Meanwhile, Mark said he is not worried that there are newbies in GMA-7. Martin del Rosario from ABS-CBN will be joining the cast of “Rhodora X.” If it was up to Yasmien, she would have wanted Rainier to be the one to star in the teleserye.
However, Mark said Rainier does not fit the role of being Yasmien’s protector since he is small in height. There are reports that Rainier wants to be back to GMA-7.
He spent 10 years in showbiz already, so Mark is used to intrigues and scandals. He is not intimated by new blood because he knows he’s got talent too.
But even though he is open to challenging roles, Mark said is not ready yet for gay roles. He is open to sexier roles, but with female partners only.
“Siguro pag wala na ako mapaglagyan sa showbiz puwede, gagawin ko ‘yon. Ayoko. Ayoko ng ganun. Siguro pag wala na akong career, sige!”
