JESSY MENDIOLA: FROM KAPAMILYA TO KAPATID?
It was in July 4 when PEP Troika reported that Jessy could be doing a show on TV5, which is currently revamping its entertainment department.
The report came four months after Jessy’s last show with ABS-CBN, the afternoon series Sandugo, which aired its final episode in March 2020.
In early 2019, Jessy was first rumored to transfer to GMA-7, after she left Star Magic, the talent-management arm of ABS-CBN.
Jessy later confirmed in a press conference that her plans of transferring to GMA-7 were canceled after ABS-CBN offered her a gray character in Sandugo, where she played the scheming ex-girlfriend of Ejay Falcon.
Jessy started her career as a Star Magic talent in 2007. Her first TV show was the Star Magic youth-oriented program, Abt Ur Luv, on its second season.
After a string of supporting roles in teleseryes and drama anthologies, Jessy got her big break in 2010.
She was paired with Coco Martin in the prime-time series Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo.
The mestiza star also top-billed the youth-oriented series Gimik 2010.
In December 2010, Jessy portrayed her first lead role in Sabel, a teleserye in the early prime-time slot.
This was followed by more lead roles in teleseryes, including Budoy (2011), Paraiso (2012), Maria Mercedes (2013), and You’re My Home (2015).
