Matteo Guidicelli Thanks Jessy Mendiola For Almost Loving HimAfter Jessy Mendiola revealed that she and Matteo Guidicelli almost had a relationship, it is Guidicelli’s turn to reveal more about their relationship which almost but never quite really came to be.
In response to Mendiola saying she was ready to love Guidicelli, the actor said “Salamat, Jessy, for appreciating, thank you so much.”
The actor, it seems, is also confident that even though they will have awkward moments working together, he and Mendiola can work well together.
“Siyempre mayroon. Hindi ba mayroon?” Guidicelli said when asked if there awkward moments working together with the actress again.
“Ah hindi ko alam, hindi ko alam kung awkward o hindi. Pero alam mo kami kasi ni Jessy kapag nasa set kami ay sobrang sanay kami sa isa't isa kasi six months kami magkasama sa Paraiso. Parang our working relationship and everything, our partnership is very nice together,” he added.
Guidicelli and Mendiola headlined the show “Paraiso” together. This is when their relationship almost became official. However, just last week, Mendiola revealed that they have agreed to end this “special” relationship.
Guidicelli said about the relationship which never quite came to be: “Kami ni Jessy we are very close. Magkasama kami sa Paraiso for six months, sobrang bonded kami ni Jessy. Hindi ko talaga makakalimutan yung moments that we are always together on set with the director and everything. So I will cherish every moment and it's a blessing to work again with her in the future.”
Back in April, Guidicelli was reported to have already introduced Mendiola to his family when the latter visited Cebu with friends during the Holy Week holiday. Guidicelli, whose family owns a private island in the area, is said to have immediately went to meet Mendiola and her friends to bring them to the island where the Guidicelli family and relatives were.
From then on, the two would be rumored to already be in a relationship. That is, until news broke out that the two have ended their relationship and Mendiola went on record to say so.
There were rumors starting to circulate that the decision to go separate ways was initiated by Guidicelli. To this, the actor and sportsman said “Wala pong ganyan, wala po.”
It’s clear, however, that Guidicelli seems to have other priorities. In the interview with ABS-CBN News at the sidelines of an event, the actor said that he is focusing on his career and his sports.
“All I'm doing right now is concentrating on my new soap, the thing I'm working on Biggest Loser and I have my Iron Man coming up this August so yun kino-concentrate ko talaga,” he said.
It is worthy to note that Guidicelli is already being linked to another celebrity: Sarah Geronimo.
However, in a separate report, ABS-CBN News says that Guidicelli is denying this. “We are friends, that's it,” the news organization quotes the actor as saying.
“We are just friends po,” he added when asked if he planned to court the singing sensation. “Wala po. We are just friends,” Guidicelli told ABS-CBN News when asked if he has a crush on Geronimo.
Mendiola herself cleared this up during her revelation about her ended “special” relationship with Guidicelli.
The actress said, “Nahihiya nga ako kay Sarah kasi palagi na lang siya ang nadadawit sa pangyayaring ito. May nagti-tweet sa akin nagagalit. Hindi po siya kasali. Siguro nagkataon nagkaroon sila ng show in the States and wala, ayaw ko siyang isama sa nangyayari kasi hindi naman po talaga.”
Meanwhile, Mendiola has also been mentioned in reports with another name in recent weeks.
Amid the swirling controversy as to where exactly JM de Guzman is at the moment, Mendiola has come out to offer words of encouragement to her former boyfriend.
The actress went on the record recently saying de Guzman is one of the best actors of his time and that a lot of people are waiting for his return.
The comments come after Mendiola has been rumored to have been the cause of the breakdown of the young actor. De Guzman’s father has revealed recently that his son is off somewhere being treated for a “medical condition”. There were reports earlier this month that the young actor entered a drug rehabilitation center in Tagaytay City recently but his father neither confirmed nor denied this.
As for now, it seems the Guidicelli-Mendiola love story has come to a close.
