Jessa Zaragoza ready to forgive Rufa Mae Quinto if she apologizes

Jessa Zaragoza will be returning to the Philippines this year with a new album, but is she ready to face new controversies as well?


"Masarap na mahirap," were the words expressed by Jessa Zaragoza when asked by StarTalk about her and husband Dingdong Avanzado's life in San Francisco. But for the singer-couple, life goes on.

Jessa said that she had the opportunity to perform with foreign talents and a big recording plan for her was already in the making.

"It's really nice," she said, "Na hindi lang kapwa Filipino yung nakakasama ko sa concerts. Hopefully, matuloy talaga yung plano for my recording career dito sa Amerika. Siyempre isa rin sa dreams ko na magkaroon ng album na hindi lang gawa sa Pilipinas kundi dito rin sa Amerika."

Also included among Jessa's plans, of course, is an album release in the Philippines.

"Sa May, we're planning to go back sa Philippines kasi nga kailangan ko talaga tapusin yung album ko na hopefully mare-release by Septmeber. Siyempre bakasyon na rin, kasi miss na miss na rin namin ang Philippines."

SHOWBIZ WELCOME. Her homecoming inevitably will be met with controversies, mainly her rift with former best friend Rufa Mae Quinto, who once became a part of Dingdong's life.

"I think nasagot ko na naman ng diretso kung ano yung mga things na dapat kong sagutin. Things na dapat kong i-reveal, which is yung katotohanan lang. Ok na yun sa akin, nasabi ko lang yun kung anong dapat linawin. Ako naman, hindi para makipag-away or gumawa ng intriga, e."

Jessa made it clear she didn't start the ruckus, saying that the rift started when Rufa Mae made revelations about the time she and Dingdong were still an item. Is she still mad?

"Yung galit? Wala na kasi ang galit humuhupa ‘yan, e. Pero siyempre hindi ko nakakalimutan yung ginawa niya. Hindi lang naman ako ang sinaktan niya, pati yung pamilya ko. Wala nang galit. Pero yun nga, hindi ko makakalimutan yung ginawa niya, unless siguro mag-apologize siya."

READY TO FORGIVE, BUT... Jessa, looked quite startled when she found about Rufa Mae's recent interview with Showbiz Central, with Rufa Mae saying that Jessa should apologize to her. What is Jessa's take on this?

"Pero kung kami'ng mag-a-apologize sa kanya tulad ng sinabi niya sa past interview niya, e, hindi mangyayari yun," Jessa said. "Kasi in the first place, wala kaming ginawang masama sa kanya. Siya nga ang dapat mag-apologize. Sa akin, pati rin siyempre sa family ni Dingdong. At lalung-lalo na kay Dingdong.

"Doon kasi sa nilabas niya sa tell-all magazine, marami talaga siyang sinabi na very hurtful, she insinuated na matapobre yung pamilya ni Dingdong. Karapatan din naman ng magulang yun na maramdaman, masukatan, or kumbaga alamin ang background ng kung sino mang dine-date ng anak nila."

Jessa revealed that she would accept Rufa Mae's apology, if the latter decides to do it. She also firmly added that this was no gimmick of hers and that she was in the right.

"Nandito na po kami sa Amerika, tahimik kami rito. Unang-una, e, hindi po kami ang nagsimula ng issue na ‘to, pero karapatan ko rin namang magsalita at ituwid kung ano man yung mga bagay na dapat ipaliwanag, kasi siyempre hindi lang naman siya [Rufa Mae] ang public property, kami rin.

"Importante rin sa amin ang perception ng tao. At isa pa, this is something na dapat sineseryoso. E, hindi naman niya maintindihan ‘yan, hindi naman siya ina, so, sa akin big deal ito kasi para sa kapakanan ng anak namin ni Dingdong paglaki niya."
