As featured on ABS-CBN Channel 2 on Saturday night, Jennylyn Mercado was the guest of Luis Manzano on “Kapamilya Deal or No Deal“, a week after his mother, Batangas governor and veteran actress Ms. Vilma Santos appeared on the show.

On the first part of the show, the 24-year old GMA-7 actress, who came along on the show with her mother, danced with the 24 gorgeous ladies on the modeling and dance routine, but lost early her chance to win the P1-million prize.

Mercado, whose first offer from ‘Banker’ was P26,700, also lost her chance to win the grand prize of P2 million and P500,000 as well; and sang some lines of “So Amazing” which the couple revealed as their theme song.

Meanwhile, Manzano, who turned 31 last April 21, helped Mercado in revealing to the audience how they met and why they call each other “Mats”; and frequently kissed her on the cheek which he said as luck to win.

On the last part of the show, Briefcase #s 7 and 16 were the only ones left and Banker’s last offer to Jennylyn Mercado was P5,000; and the actress still took the chance of ‘no-deal’, who chose Briefcase # 7 and won P100 only instead of P10,000.

After Gov. Vilma Santos, another special girl in Luis Manzano’s life will try to make a good deal with the Banker. The second part of the host-actor’s birthday celebration continues this Saturday (April 28) in the ABS-CBN game show, Kapamilya Deal or No Deal.


GMA-7 actress Jennylyn Mercado appears on the Kapamilya Network for the very first time just for Luis. She went through the tension of picking the right briefcases in hopes of winning the P2 million jackpot.

I Salute Jennilyn Mercado


Posted on April 26, 2012 by Nicquee

When we were at Las Pinas, I had a grand time watching local channels because 1) they do not have cable there and 2) we sleep in the sala area.

We were channel hopping and I found that aside from Channel 2, I can tolerate shows from Channel 11 (sister channel of GMA 7). We watched the Follow That Star episode featuring Jennilyn Mercado.

I really think that this person can sing and act. She is honest enough to admit that she cannot dance. I cannot say anything about that because I do not watch GMA 7 shows. But she enrolled herself to dance lessons to learn and that shows her want to be a better artist.

What caught my attention the most is when I found out how sporty she is. You see, I have high regards to sporty moms. She runs, bikes, swims, and even dives! She does duathlon and triathlon! And she is a celebrity. She surely does not need science to keep her body in shape, just Gluta-IV to keep her skin fair from all her sun exposure.

I think she is pretty and is a good actress. But I feel that she can be more than what she is now with regards to her acting career. She has a pretty face and body that even when she does not put on make up and dress up much, she will still be noticed. Her being fit and sporty is really inspiring.

Patrick Denies Having Dumped Jennylyn, Saves Up For Son
By JECELYN V. MACAHINDOG
April 24, 2012, 2:16pm

PATRICK GARCIA
MANILA, Philippines— Patrick Garcia has finally opened up on one of his life’s dramatic episodes – his relationship with singer-actress Jennylyn Mercado. The former couple has a son, three-year-old Alex Jazz.

“[Jennylyn] was very maalagain and she was very sweet to me,” Patrick recalls of Jennylyn in an interview with “Showbiz Inside Report” recently. The kapuso star is currently dating Luis Manzano.

Since news of Jennylyn’s pregnancy surfaced at the time, Patrick was accused to have left the relationship. Adding controversy to the breakup was Patrick’s refusal to take responsibility of the baby.

“[When she got pregnant,] it was very magulo, that’s why I had to leave the country for a while. I didn’t get scared, no. Kumbaga ma-barkada pa ako noon eh. I wasn’t ready,” Patrick explained.

“But I never left her. Although she said I did, no, I did not,” he added.

The returning kapamilya actor shared the feeling when he first met his son.

“I didn’t know how a father was supposed to feel. I didn’t know how. I was happy, and yet, ‘What do I do?’ But it came to me naman what my role is supposed to be for him,” Patrick said.

Years after estrangement, Patrick and Jennylyn have become civil with each other and now share parental duties to their son. A proud father, Patrick claims Alex Jazz is more like him than his mother.

“Nakilala na niya ako, nakikilala ko rin siya. When I met him, I always wanted myself to be there for him. It felt good. Everything about me, [namana niya] – how he sleeps, lahat namana sa’kin. Wala namana kay Jen,” he said in jest.

According to Patrick, being a father to his son made him become less selfish. In fact, the “Lumayo Ka Man Sa Akin” actor said that he has been saving up for Alex Jazz’s future.

“I’m more concerned about his future. Before, I used to spend for myself and what I want. Now kailangan magtabi for him, for his future... It doesn’t make you selfish. It makes you think of another being aside from yourself. Because I love my son, it’s effortless to just give for him,” he said.

Rufa Mae, na-insecure kay Jennylyn, kaya umalis sa SC?


Written by Chan Chan Torres
Monday, 23 April 2012 05:51


MAY isyu ba kina Rufa Mae Quinto at Jennylyn Mercado?

Sa biglaang desisyon kasi ni P-Chi (palayaw ni RMQ) na umalis na sa Showbiz Central, may mga isyu na tila si Jennylyn daw ang dahilan?

Ang siste, kesyo nasasapawan na raw si P-Chi at nawalan ng exposure at tungkulin sa SC mula noong maging host si Jen.

Ang totoo, gusto lang daw talaga ni Rufa Mae na mabawasan ang work load niya lalo pa’t wala na rin siyang obligasyon sa mga kapatid dahil nagsipagtapos na rin ang mga iyon sa pag-aaral at may kanya-kanya nang mga karera. Mas type raw ng aktres/ TV host na bigyan ng prioridad ang personal niyang buhay ngayon.

May say naman kaya si Boy 2 Quizon sa bagay na ito? Eh, balita nga namin masyado raw itong possessive at demanding kay Rufa Mae? Ilan pang mga komento ang aming narinig na kesyo insecure raw si Boy 2 kay Rufa Mae kaya pati raw mga outfit ng nobya eh, iniinspeksyon pa nito? Teka, umamin na ba sila?

Kakalurky, hindi pa nga umaamin na may relasyon ang dalawa, natsitsismis na malapit na raw silang ikasal. Ang taray!

Say pa ni Rufa Mae, may mga pelikula raw siyang naka-line up ngayong taon, kahit hindi raw siya mapapanood sa telebisyon, tiyak na mas magugustuhan naman ng fans ang pagiging aktibo muli ni Booba sa pelikula.

In fairness din naman kay Jennylyn, epektibo at may puso siyang host ng SC kaya unfair din sa nobya ni Luis Manzano kung ibintang sa kanya nag pag-resign ni P-Chi sa SC.

Part 1. Luis Manzano denies visiting a church in Batangas to book his wedding with Jennylyn Mercado: "Kagulat-gulat talaga!"

Hindi inaasahang makasalubong ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Luis Manzano sa hallway ng ABS-CBN studios kahapon, April 22.


Napadaan siya roon para dalawin ang mga host ng The Buzz na sina Toni Gonzaga at Boy Abunda na parehong malapit sa kanya.

WEDDING IN BATANGAS? Natawa ang TV host-actor nang mausisa tungkol sa napapabalitang plano na raw nilang magpakasal ng girlfriend niyang si Jennylyn Mercado.

May balita pa ngang nakita raw si Luis na nagpunta sa Basilica of St. Martin de Tours sa Taal, Batangas para mag-inquire ng tungkol sa pagpapa-book ng kasal.

“Kagulat-gulat talaga! Siguro kamukha ko lang!” sabay tawa ni Luis.

Wala pa bang plano talaga na pakasal na sila ni Jennylyn? Hindi pa nila napag-uusapan?

“Wala. Actually, nabasa ko nga ‘yon. Sabi ko, ‘Sino ‘yon?’

“Kung kamukha ko man siya, ang suwerteng nilalang no’n!” pabiro pang nasabi niya.

“Wala kahit anong katotohanan behind it. Nothing at all talaga.

“Ni hindi ko ma-explain. Kahit ako, gusto kong malaman ang pinanggalingan no’n. I’m curious.

“Kung may mahanap din kayong kasagutan, please let me know."

Ano naman ang reaksiyon ni Jennylyn tungkol dito?

“Hindi ko alam kung nabalitaan na niya.

“Pero kahit ako, hindi ko alam kung papa'no ipapaliwanag kasi ang labo, e. There’s nothing behind it.

“So, ewan ko... Siguro kamukha ko lang ‘yong sinasabing nakita nila doon.

“Iyon lang ang only explanation na naiisip ko—kamukha.

“I think na-clarify na rin yata ng mga taga-Taal. So, weird lang.

“Kahit ako, gusto kong malaman ang pinanggalingan no’n. I’m curious.

“Kung may mahanap din kayong kasagutan, please let me know," saad ni Luis.

FOR HIS CONSIDERATION. Sakali ba na magpapakasal na nga sila ni Jennylyn, ikukunsidera ba ni Luis na sa Batangas ito ganapin?

“Oo naman!" mabilis niyang sagot.

"Batangas is very close to my family. Do’n nga ikinasal din si Mommy.

“Oo, iku-consider ko rin naman iyon.”

Sa Lipa City Cathedral noon ikinasal ang ina ni Luis na si Batangas Governor Vilma Santos at si Senator Ralph Recto.

Sila naman kaya ni Jennylyn, posible bang sa Basilica of St. Martin de Tours sa Taal, gaya ng usap-usapan lately?

Bukod kasi sa tourist attraction ito sa Batangas, makasaysayan din ang naturang simbahan na sinasabing pinakamalaki sa Pilipinas, at pangalawa sa pinakamalaki sa Asia.

Matatandaang dito ikinasal noon si Ogie Alcasid at ang first wife nitong si Michelle Van Eimeren.

Ayon kay Luis, “Yes, iku-consider ko rin naman na puwedeng doon.

“Pero long long way to go. Hindi pa talaga.”

IS SHE THE ONE? Maganda ang takbo ng relasyon nila ni Jennylyn kaya halos lahat ay ina-assume na papunta na sila sa kasalan.

Ano ang masasabi ni Luis dito?

“Well, in any relationship naman, you’re hoping na it’s the end product. Uhm… pero long way to go.”

Mga ilang taon pa kaya bago mangyaring humarap na nga sila ni Jennylyn sa altar?

“I have no idea. I wish I knew," sagot niya.

Si Jennylyn na nga ba ang babaeng pakakasalan niya? Sigurado na siya?

“Sa amin naman, in any relationship, you work on it for keeps.

“Pero long way to go pa nga. Very, very long way.”

They’re still enjoying each other’s company as of now, according to Luis. At sa gano’ng level daw muna sila bago ang tungkol sa pagpaplanong pakasal na.

“Yes. Not just the relationship, we’re enjoying everything na life is drawing my way.”

Ilang taon pa kaya bago sila magdesisyong magpakasal na?

“Wala. Sabi ko nga, may mga whirlwind romance na nangyayari.

“At the same time, merong mga sobrang tagal bago magkatuluyan.

“So, hindi pa namin alam kung saan ba kami pupuwesto no’n.”

Pero kung tutuusin, stable na siya at kaya nang magkaroon ng sariling pamilya. Kung aspetong ito ang pag-uusapan, handa na siguro siyang lumagay sa buhay may-asawa.

“Not yet," pagtanggi ni Luis.

"Kasi, kumbaga, ang dami ko pang kailangang gawin.

“At the same time, inirerespeto ko ‘yong kailangang gawin ni Jen.

"Hindi lang bilang isang anak. Higit sa lahat, bilang isang ina.”

ALL'S WELL! Sa kaso ni Luis, parang nasa ayos ang lahat ng aspeto ng kanyang buhay.

Smooth-sailing ang relasyon nila ni Jennylyn. Maayos din ang lagay ng mga pinasok niyang negosyo. At ang kanyang career, okey rin ang takbo.

Labis nga rin daw siyang nag-e-enjoy sa paghu-host ng Kapamilya Deal Or No Deal.

“We’re very happy naman sa feedback sa show.

"At sa ratings na dumarating sa amin na… masaya din naman ang tao sa napapanood nila," sabi ni Luis.


Part 2. Luis Manzano on having his first lady before running for mayor: "Kung ang President nga, wala pang first lady, e!”

Ipinalabas noong Sabado, April 21, ang guest appearance ng ina ni Luis Manzano na si Batangas Governor Vilma Santos sa game show niyang Deal Or No Deal.


Noong araw na yun ang mismong kaarawan ni Luis. He is 31 years old.

Nakapag-taping na rin daw ang kasintahang si Jennylyn Mercado bilang celebrity player ng show kasunod ng episode ng kanyang mommy.

“Yes. Siya ang guest namin next week.

“Birthday special ko itong magkasunod na episode for two weeks," banggit ni Luis sa panayam sa kanya ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal).

Kumusta ang pagge-guest ni Jennylyn, na isang Kapuso actress, for the first time sa isang Kapamilya show?

Ano ang nasabi sa kanya nito regarding her experience sa paggi-guest sa Kapamilya: Deal Or No Deal?

“Siyempre nag-enjoy siya. And we’re very thankful both sa ABS-CBN at saka sa GMA bosses na pinayagan nila na magkatawiran ng artista," sabi ni Luis.

Si Luis naman ay magge-guest sa Showbiz Central ng GMA-7, kung saan isa si Jennylyn sa mga hosts.

“Yes, May inaayos din kami. Ayoko naming i-preempt.

“Pero siyempre, kumbaga, may deal pa rin na nangyari," banggit pa ni Luis.

Regular pa rin daw ang pag-i-scuba diving nila ni Jennylyn sa Batangas.

“Oo. In fact, since birthday ko nga kahapon [April 21]… four days ago ay nasa Batangas kami.”

Kumusta nga pala ang birthday celebration niya?

“Okey naman. Ang mga business partner ko at si Jen [tawag niya kay Jennylyn] ang naghanda ng isang surpise party para sa akin sa bahay ko kagabi.

“Uhm.. 'tapos si Jen, naghanda rin ng konting surprise din sa Anilao no’ng nag-dive kami.”

GIFTS FROM JEN AND ATE VI. Ano naman ang birthday gift sa kanya ni Jennylyn?

“Isang napakaganda at napakalaking barbecue grill para sa garden ko—a smokeless and everything na grill.

“Kasi iyon na lang ang kulang, e. Palaging nasa bahay ko ang barkada ko.

“So, iyon, ang sarap lang mag-ihaw-ihaw do’n sa napakagandang grill.”

Ang mommy naman niyang si Governor Vi, ano ang regalo sa kanya?

“Kasi nanggaling sila sa Singapore. So, ang sinasabi ni Mommy, lahat ng pasalubong niya sa akin, iyon na raw ‘yon.

"Mga clothes, polo... iyon na raw ‘yon,” sabay ngiti ni Luis.

BIRTHDAY WISH? Parang nasa kanya na lahat ngayon at wala na siyang mahihiling pa. May masasabi pa ba siyang birthday wish?

“No. But I’m more thankful instead of wishing.

“And hindi naman nasa akin na lahat. Pero kahit paano, kuntento naman sa mga nakukuha," sabi ni Luis.

Bukod sa lingguhang paghu-host ng Kapamilya Deal Or No Deal, ASAP, at Sarah G Live, ano ang future projects na gagawin niya?

“Soon, magsisimula na ulit ang Pilipinas Got Talent.

“Tapos, a… I’m taking it easy muna.

"Mahirap kasing mag-overload ng utak sa mga kailangang gawin.

“Same team naman ‘yong Kapamilya Deal Or No Deal at saka Pilipinas Got Talent.

“So by the time na magsimula ang Pilipinas Got Talent, tatapusin na namin ang Deal Or No Deal.

“'Tapos after PGT [Pilipinas Got Talent], saka naman ulit babalik ang Kapamilya Deal Or No Deal.”

MAYOR LUIS? Ano naman ang update sa noon pa mang napapabalita ring pagtakbo niya bilang mayor ng Lipa City sa Batangas?

“Sabi ko naman, mas gumagawa pa ng ingay ang ibang tao kumpara sa akin. Mas pinag-uusapan ng ibang tao,” nangiti na sabi ni Luis.

"Ako naman, never namang nag-announce.

“In fact, pinag-uusapan nga last election, may mga nakuha akong text na inaantay na raw ako sa COMELEC [Commission on Elections] dahil magpa-file na raw ako ng aking candidacy!” natatawang sabi niya.

“Samantalang nasa bahay lang naman ako. Naka-shorts, naka-sando, kumakamut-kamot ng tiyan.

“So, mas nabibigyang-ingay ng ibang tao kumpara sa akin.

“Ako naman, if I’m ready, malalaman ng lahat dahil hindi naman ako puwedeng mag-file ng candidacy nang patago.”

Hindi pa ba talaga siya handang sumabak sa pulitika ngayon?

“Uhm, siguro sa puntong ito that we’re having this conversation, hindi pa," sagot ni Luis.

Pero totoong may mga taga-Lipa na kumakausap na nga at nang-eengganyo sa kanya na tumakbong mayor doon?

“Wala pa. Wala pa. Sabi ko nga, mas gumagawa ng ingay ang ibang tao.”

Ano ang sinasabi sa kanya ng mommy niya?

“Wala naman. Kasi alam din naman niya na hindi pa ako ready.

“And siguro, if I believe, if I wake up one day na wanting to do it, she’s gonna be the first one na kakausapin ako.”

HIS FIRST LADY? Kailan kaya siya magiging ready? Kailangan ba muna ay may first lady na siya? Papakasal muna ba sila ni Jennylyn bago ang pagpasok niya sa pulitika?

“Kung ang President nga, wala pang first lady, e!” tawa ulit ni Luis patungkol kay Pangulong Noynoy Aquino.

“Eto pa ba namang pagiging mayor, di ba?”

It's a deal: Jennylyn Mercado to guest on Luis Manzano's show, and vice versa


23-Apr-12, 11:39 AM | Sirri Shayla, InterAksyon.com

Apparently, it's a network deal. On April 28, GMA talent Jennylyn Mercado will appear as a special guest on "Deal or No Deal," the ABS-CBN game show hosted by her boyfriend, Luis Manzano.

In return, the Kapamilya hunk is expected to cross over as a guest on Jennylyn's talk show on GMA, "Showbiz Central."

The Kapuso actress clarifies that she obtained a one-time pass for her "Deal or No Deal" only as a part of the show's birthday treat for Luis, who turned a year older last April 21.

The two-part birthday special has already been taped, with Luis' mother, Batangas governor Vilma Santos-Recto, kicking off the proceedings.

"Naunang ipinalabas last Saturday (April 21) 'yung kay Tita Vi. Yun kasi ang birthday mismo ni Luis," Jennylyn says.

Both shows were taped on the same day.

"We were both in the studio noong tine-tape 'yung show. Pero nasa bandang likod ako. Si Tita Vi ang nasa harapan ng audience. Sa dressing room na kami nagkausap," she says.

Needless to say, Jennylyn had a blast doing the show with Luis, her boyfriend of one year. But she admits getting unnerved by the idea that his mom was watching them in the studio.

"Hindi naman nawawala 'yung kaba ko lalo na kapag nandiyan si Tita Vi. Sobra ang respeto ko sa kanya kaya kapag nandiyan siya, kailangan maayos ako," she explains.

Thankfully, Luis was always ready with a wisecrack or three: "Si Luis kasi, mahilig magbiro kaya natatawa ako. Nawawala tuloy ang poise ko dahil sa kanya.

'Pero sinasabi naman niya na ginagawa niya iyon para ma-relax ako. Mas gusto raw niyang hindi ako ninenerbiyos. Kaya panay ang pagpapatawa niya sa akin," she adds.

But the truth is Jennylyn has nothing to worry about. The Star for All Seasons likes her son's girlfriend just the way she is.

"Noong mabasa ko nga 'yan sa mga interviews ni Tita Vi, natuwa naman ako kasi 'yun pala ang napapansin sa akin. Hindi naman ako aware na ganito pala ang kilos ko. Basta nandiyan naman si Tita Vi, I try to be myself talaga," she says.

And based on those interviews, what matters the most to her Tita Vi is that Jennylyn makes Luis happy.

"Kung napapasaya ko si Luis, napapasaya rin naman niya ako," she says. "Pareho lang kaming masayahing tao at nagkataon na magkasundo kaming dalawa."

She thinks the compatibility also applies to their respective careers.

Working for different networks has allowed them to maintain their identities as individuals.

But of course, when the idea to guest on each other's shows came up, Jennylyn knew it was a deal she couldn't pass up. Now that she has fulfilled her end of the bargain, when will Luis live up to his?

"May pinag-usapan naman na kami and with our managers. Pumayag ako na mag-guest sa show ni Luis, kaya papayag din siyang mag-guest sa 'Showbiz Central.'"

All indications point to the prospect of Luis popping in as a "surprise guest" when Jennylyn celebrates her birthday on the show next month, but her handlers are keeping the details under wraps.

"Hindi ko alam kung ano talaga at kung kelan. Pero mas maganda nga kung sa birthday ko para parehas lang," she says. "Abangan na lang nila kung kelan mapapanood si Luis sa GMA. For sure

na isang exciting na araw ito for both of us."

As far as his lovelife is concerned, Luis admits he has, so far, nothing to ask for. He had found in girlfriend, Jennylyn Mercado, an ideal match.

“Para ngang ‘di uso sa amin ang nag-a-argue of whatever kind,” Luis revealed. “Para bang match na match kami.”

They both love sports, especially surfing. Weekly, they make it a point to surf in one of the beaches in Batangas.

Luis’ mom, Vilma Santos-Recto, we all know, is the current Batangas governor.

Luis is turning 32 on his birthday this Saturday, April 21.

Isn’t that the age ideal for marriage na? Luis was asked.

Yes, he knows, he replied, and added that he and Jennylyn do discuss it once in a while. Although not seriously yet. For, as of the moment, Luis explained, Jennylyn still wants a lot to accomplish.

And Luis obviously is willing to wait.
