Mark Herras celebrated his 20th birthday last December 16 with a dance concert at Zirkoh Timog. His guests included no less than Jennylyn Mercado, Ryza Cenon, and Katrina Halili. All three girls are well-known GMA-7 stars, and all three were, at some point, linked to the Bad Boy of the Dance Floor.
Jennylyn is, of course, Mark's most recent ex-girlfriend. Ryza is someone Mark was rumoured to be courting when he and Jennylyn were still together. Katrina, for her part, is now being linked to Mark and is said to be dating him, which is something that both Katrina and Mark have denied.
In an S-Files live interview last December 17, Mark said that the presence of the three young actresses in his birthday dance concert was not planned. It simply happened that they were all his friends, he said.
Jennylyn and Ryza performed during the concert, while Katrina just dropped by to greet Mark. Jennylyn did not go to the dressing room, so she and Ryza did not see each other.
Mark explained, "Hindi dahil sa pinagsama-sama ko silang lahat dun. Ako, si Ryza, LJ [Reyes], meron kaming hataw group sa SOP. Kulang pa nga yun e, kasi si Chynna [Ortaleza] may trabaho. Si Marky [Cielo] rin may trabaho. ‘Yung hataw group namin sa SOP, sumayaw kami nung gabing 'yun."
He also added, "Then si Kat [Katrina], dumaan. ‘Di nga nakapanood si Kat kasi may trabaho 'ata."
He explains some more, "Si Jen, automatic namang hahanapin 'yan ng tao. Nag-birthday concert ka, hahanapin ng tao si Jen. Kumanta si Jen, kinantahan niya ako sa stage. Wala pong kaso dun. Okay kami, wala namang problema."
Mark's other guests in his dance concert were Rainier Castillo, John Prats, Aryanna, Dion Ignacio, Felix and Dominic Roco, and the EB [Eat Bulaga!]Babes.
