Jessica Rodriguez-Bunevacz is now a book author.
She cried when she learned her first work, Date Like A Girlfriend, Marry Like A Woman: A Polished Woman’s Guide to Love, Romance and Sex, is now available on Amazon.com for US$17.50.
The book, which is based on her experiences, was three years in the making.
Jessica wrote it to give sensible advice to women who currently have relationship problems.
She told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), “Naging inspirasyon ko sa pagsusulat ang mga karanasan ko sa buhay at ang mga kaibigan ko dito sa Amerika na nagpapasalamat sa akin.
“Na-solve daw ang mga problema nila sa mga asawa dahil sa mga advice ko sa kanila."
The former talent manager had a colorful life before she and husband David Bunevacz left for the U.S. almost ten years ago.
“Noong kabataan ko, I ran with the wild crowd.
“I partied, rubbed elbows, dated and slept with the rich and famous—politicians, actors, Hollywood stars, models, celebrities, sugar daddies, and what have you.
“Nagkaroon ako ng fleeting relationships sa lahat ng klase ng lalake mula sa iba’t ibang bansa at lahi.
“Dahil sa first-hand knowledge ko, nalaman ko ang mga reasons kung bakit ginagawa ng mga lalake ang mga ginagawa nila.
“Nang maghiwalay ang mga magulang ko, natuto ako na magtrabaho para sa sarili ko at sa mga kapatid ko.
“I did modeling jobs at an early age, naging live mannequin ako sa display windows ng mga department store, sumali sa Bb. Pilipinas, nag-artista, and later on branched into talent management for other women aspiring to proverbial fame and fortune.
“Through trial and error and in the most painful way possible, I eventually uncovered a good sense of what I did not want from a man or in a relationship.
“The constant vicious cycle of loving and hurting got me somewhere in the end.
"After all was said and done, I became wiser."
Hence, she's encouraging women to become the best they can be.
“So ang babae na nakikita niyo ngayon ang produkto ng lahat ng mga pinagsama-sama na karanasan.
“Wala akong degree sa medicine o psychology. Nor do I have a professional license as a life coach or marriage counselor.
“If I had pursued a medical degree, it would have been in dermatology.
“I don’t claim to be a beauty or fashion guru, rather, beauty and fashion are my passions.
“But my friends have been nothing but encouraging when I tell them I wanted to do this blog focusing on advice for women.
“I love women and I love being a woman. I love being surrounded by beautiful women and I believe every woman is attractive.
“I want to help and witness women evolve into their desired selves. We just have to learn to express what is within and to let out the essence of our beauty from our core.”
Another book is set to to be released after Date Like A Girl, Marry Like A Woman.
Titled I Love, it will be a tell-all of sorts about the guys she dated and will have "explosive" revelations.
