Jake Cuenca Rumored To Be Next Leading Man For Jessy MendiolaAs the relationship between Jessy Mendiola and Matteo Guidicelli blooms, rumor has it that Jake Cuenca will be the next leading man of the rising actress.
As such, many are asking if the budding relationship between Mendiola and Guidicelli will be nipped in the bud.
The rumor comes to us via The Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) which cites an unnamed source saying Cuenca is being pegged as the next leading man for Mendiola.
This will be for the remake of the hit Mexican telenovela Maria Mercedes.
Even though ABS-CBN is yet to officially reveal the cast of the telenovela remake, Mendiola is said to be featured in the summer station ID of the network as the lead actress in the upcoming show – a strong indication, according to PEP, that Mendiola will really play Maria Mercedes.
However, this same source tells PEP that Guidicelli will not be Jorge Luis, the leading man of Maria Mercedes.
Apparently, Guidicelli is very much saddened by this development.
Recently, things have been going pretty well for Guidicelli and Mendiola.
