"I wanna take my sweet time this time. Kasi, dun ako nagkakamali palagi sa pagmamadali. So, parang lesson learned na sa akin na parang to take my time and enjoy every moment and, you know, my priority should be my children muna above anything else and my work as a politician," says Aiko Melendez about getting married again.


"Separate Lives" ang tingin ni Aiko Melendez na babagay na kanta kung totoo nga at mangyayari ang kahilingan ng kanyang ex-husband na si Jomari Yllana na maka-duet siya sa Celebrity Duets. Ito ang natatawang sabi ni Aiko sa "7th birthday" ni Angelina (Ogie Alcasid) cum press conference ng Yaya and Angelina (The Spoiled Brat Movie) kahapon, September 1, sa Gerry's Grill, T. Morato Ave., Quezon City.

Kung may maganda man daw sa kanila ni Jomari ay naging magkaibigan sila pagkatapos nilang maghiwalay.

"Of course, we are friends. We have to be friends. We have Andrei [their son]. Ang pangit na tatay ng anak ko, hindi kami okey. Hindi na nga kami naging okey bilang mag-asawa, at least, bilang parents to Andrei naman," saad ni Aiko sa panayam sa kanya ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal).

Pagbibigyan ba ni Aiko ang wish ni Jomari na maka-duet siya sa Celebrity Duets?

"Well, I told him nga kanina, I'll still check on it," sabi niya. "Kasi, ngayon ko lang din nalaman. Hindi ko alam na may kasama pala siya dun. So, I want to check muna, kasi I don't want him naman to expect on something na ngayon ko lang din nalaman. So, hindi pa ako makasagot."

When it comes to Jomari's lovelife, she wishes him well.

"In all sincerity, I wish him really well," sabi ni Aiko. "Kasi, tatay 'yan ng anak ko. I don't want anything bad to happen to him. And kung anuman yung hurt na na-cause niya sa akin dati, e, gusto kong suklian yun na magkaroon siya ng magandang buhay para kay Andrei man lamang."

AIKO'S SECOND HUSBAND. Kumusta naman sila ng pangalawa niyang napangasawa na si Martin Jickain?

"Civil kami ni Martin," sagot ng actress-politician. "Siguro, darating yung oras din or panahon na magiging parang kami ni Jomari yung kay Martin. Kasi yung kay Martin, medyo may kaso. May ganun, di ba? Pero ang mabuti sa amin, hindi kami magkaaway."

Regularly ay nahihiram at nakakasama raw ni Martin ang anak nila ni Aiko na si Marthena.

"Yes, yes... At kapag kami may concerns about Marthena, I tell him. I text him na 'O, ganito, ganyan.'"

Kung anuman daw ang gusot o problema meron siya sa mga ama ng mga anak niya, pagdating sa relasyon ng mga anak niya sa kani-kanilang ama, yun ang hindi niya hinahayaang maapektuhan.

"Maiintindihan 'yan ng mga ina na katulad ko. You only want the best for your children. At kahit na minsan, hindi bukal sa loob mo na may gawin para sa ano, you have to do it for your kids, e. So, that's what I'm doing right now," saad niya.

A HIGHER POSITION. Pagdating naman sa pagiging pulitiko ni Aiko, tuloy-tuloy na raw ang pagtakbo niya bilang vice mayor ng Quezon City.

Aniya, "As of today, I'm still running as vice mayor. So far, hindi pa ako makapag-decide kung anong partido kasi lahat ng tatakbo, as of this time na vice mayor, are all from Lakas. So, by middle of October, malalaman namin kung ano."

Desidido na ba talaga siya to run as vice mayor?

"Kung ang pag-uusapan natin is my experience as a councilor, since ang work kasi ng vice mayor is legislator, and that's really my line, I'm a legislator. Legislation ang pagiging vice mayor. I think yung nine years ko, yung three terms ko will speak for itself na alam na alam ko ang pinapasok ko. So, If I'm going to base it from there, oo, handa na 'ko," kampanteng sagot ni Aiko.

Talagang nakita na niya ang mundo niya sa politics?

"Well, I can't say naman na binitawan ko na ang show business. That's the reason why I did Yaya...(The Movie). Kasi, nami-miss ko nga ang showbiz. And even last year, I see to it na kahit once a year, may ginagawa akong project. Kasi, mahal ko pa rin ang industriya natin. Kasi, utang na loob ko sa industriya natin kung sino ako ngayon, e."

YAYA & ANGELINA. Natuwa rin daw si Aiko na nakasama siya sa Yaya and Angelina, kung saan gumaganap sila ni Jomari bilang mga magulang ni Angelina.

"It's comedy, so puwedeng manood ang mga anak ko," sambit niya. "At saka, original cast ako ng Bubble Gang, so nami-miss ko na rin sina Bitoy [Michael V] at Ogie. Na-miss ko rin gumawa ng movie. My last movie was four years ago, yung Filipinas [Viva Films]. Sa sobrang excited nga ako, nauuna pa akong minsan sa crew, sa set! Ganoon lang talaga, promise, nauuna ako. I miss working again. I miss being back in showbiz."

Natuwa ba ang anak nilang si Andrei nang malamang magkasama sila ni Jomari sa movie?

"Actually, nasabi ko kay Andrei, mga three days na kaming nagsu-shoot. Kasi, every time na makakauwi ako, wala si Andrei, nasa school. So, sabi ko, 'Hey, I'm doing a picture with your dad.' Sabi niya, 'What?' Sabi ko, 'It's a movie that you can watch.' Sabi niya, 'Great, cool!'

"Okay. E, anak ko, Atenista, so ganun kung sumagot. So, sabi ko, 'Okay, we'll watch it together, Andrei,'" kuwento ni Aiko.

AIKO'S LOVELIFE. What about her own lovelife with Bulacan, Bulacan Vice Mayor Patrick Meneses?

"Okay naman, everything is smooth sailing," sagot ni Aiko. "Kumbaga, sabi ko nga kanina, I don't wanna rush things. Kasi for two years na, magkaibigan kami ni Patrick. We started out as friends, so what we have right now is something special na tsine-cherish namin. Kasi ang foundation namin is based on friendship."

Annulment na lang ba ng kasal ni Aiko kay Martin ang hinihintay nila?

"No, actually, for decision na siya... Anytime soon, puwede nang lumabas," banggit ng actress-politician.

Kasalan na bang muli kapag lumabas na ang decision for annulment?

"Hindi pa rin. Hindi pa rin ako magpapakasal," sagot ni Aiko.

Na-trauma na ba siya sa past two marriages niya?

"Hindi naman na-trauma. I wanna take my sweet time this time. Kasi, dun ako nagkakamali palagi sa pagmamadali. So, parang lesson learned na sa akin na parang to take my time and enjoy every moment and, you know, my priority should be my children muna above anything else and my work as a politician. So, siguro yun muna."
