"Kailan lang kaminagkakilala, nasa posisyon na si Patrick. He did it by himself, naging vicemayor siya at an early age, and I don't think he needs me to continue going ontop," says Aiko Melendez about rumored boyfriend, Bulacan Vice Mayor Patrick Meneses.



Slim na slim angdating ngayon ng actress-politician na si Aiko Melendez. She is now seen constantly in public attalaga namang nagbalik na yung dati niyang whistle-bait figure.

When asked, Aikotold PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) na talagang hindi naman ganoonkadali para bumaba ang kanyang timbang. Hindi biro nga‘yung almost 80 pounds na nawala sa kanya.

"When someone likeme really wants this reduction in weight, it can be achieved. Its' not reallyvery easy, but the point is, I am only this size now, and I want to maintainthis," sabi ni Aiko nang buong pagmamalaki sa tagumpay ng kanyang diet atexercise regimen.

BACK INTO LIMELIGHT. Maraming dahilankung bakit nagpapayat nang husto si Aiko. Pero ang kanyang mga kausap naentertainment press ang tumatayang ang pangunahing dahilan ay ang kanyangpagbabalik sa limelight. Siya ang featured actress sa Your Song ng Kapamilyanetwork, for one month at ito ay nagsisimula na this Sunday bago ang The Buzz.

Kung gustong nganamang makabalik ni Aiko sa mainstream, she should be in fighting form.Magaling siyang aktres, pero higit na kailangang maibalik nga niya yung datingganda ng kanyang figure na gaya ngayon ay napagkamalan pa siyang sexystar.

"Nope, nagpapayatako hindi to become a sexy star. It is a wrong notion to think that I'mmaintaining this sexy figure for me to get sexy roles. I believe that I mustreally be this sexy to get in the form, and as you see, I am back now, and Ihope this is for good," sabi niya.

After Your Song,slated din si Aiko to do an episode for Maalaala Mo Kaya at sa marami pangshows ng ABS-CBN.

"I am not exclusiveto ABS-CBN," paglilinaw niya. "Wala akong kontrata sa kanila ngayon. But I mustsay I am grateful and glad for giving me this chance to be in the limelightagain."

LOVE CALLING. Isa pang rasong iniisip ng marami kung bakit nga sobrang disiplina sa kanyang regimen si Aikoay dahil sa tawag ng pag-ibig. Lagi na niyang kasama sa mga lakad niya siBulacan, Bulacan Vice Mayor Patrick Meneses, who can pass for a moviestar himself. Guwapo ang pulitikong ito, at isa sa mga itinuturong dahilan ngpagpapaganda ngayon ni Aiko.

The day PEPinterviewed Aiko, nasa tabi lang niya si Patrick na nanatiling tahimik at nagmamasid lamang. Nangangahulugan kayang silang dalawa na at posibleng mauwinga sa kasalan in the end?

"Let us just say thatGod is good to me," sabi ni Aiko. "I was placed in a situation where there issomeone who looks after my welfare and someone who is always by my side. Afterwhat I‘ve gone through, there is someone like him who would like to fill in thegap that I am missing.

"Masaya akong lalo dahil nga mabuting tao ang binigay ngDiyos to look after me. Kaya nga sabi ko, God is good at alam Niya angmakagaganda at makagpapapasaya sa akin," paliwanag pa nito na walang diretsongtinutukoy sa tunay na relasyon nila ng pulitiko.

AIKO'S PAST. At siyempre, satuwing humaharap sa press si Aiko ay hindi siya nakaiiwas sa mga tanong tungkolsa mapait na pagkauwi sa hiwalayan nila ni Martin Jickain. Kung magkaibigan naba sila at nag-uusap ngayong mga panahong ito?

"Yes, we text eacheach other, we call each other if we have to, at ang dahilan ay ang aming anakna si Marthena. Ayoko namang i-deprive ang anak ko sa pangangailangan niya sakanyang ama.

"Kahit noong kami niJom [Jomari Yllana], we passed through a stage na hindi namin pareho matanggapang maraming bagay. But you see, we finally have become friends and open witheach other. Alam ko ang nangyayari sa kanya, and definitely, he knows what ishappening in my life. We share a son and I think it is very healthy for ourson.

"Kaya nga, kahitsaang bitterness kami galing ni Martin, basta para sa anak namin, okey lang.Yes, Marthena is with her father at least once a week, at palagay ko tama langna ganoon. As for me and Martin, the right time would come that we can be veryopen with each other."

POLITICAL AGENDA. At dahil nasapulitika rin si Patrick, may mga intriga tungkol sa pagkakaroon nila ngrelasyon. Hindi maiwasang kailangang sanggain ng konsehala yung maaaringibintang na ginagamit siyang tuntungan ng manliligaw na pulitiko upangmakarating siya sa kaitaasan ng kanyang political career.

"For one, mabutingtao si Patrick, and he will never do that. He belongs to a very stablepolitical family who had been in the field for a long time in Bulacan.Nakarating ang pamilya niya sa stability ng kanilang political life at walasilang ginamit na tao.

"Kailan lang kaminagkakilala, nasa posisyon na si Patrick. He did it by himself, naging vicemayor siya at an early age, and I don't think he needs me to continue going ontop," seryosong katuwiran ni Aiko.
