Jennylyn Mercado guested yesterday, April 13, at Showbiz Central toface the Central Jury, composed of Raymond Gutierrez and Mo Twister, concerning a couple of controversies and a rumor somorbid that it would make some people fidget. However, the blooming andsurprisingly collected Jennylyn just laughed at it all and faced theJury's questioning with ease.
Before the interview began, Raymond commended Jennylyn's overall appearance, saying, "You look so beautiful.Parang hindi ka pregnant. Tignan mo, if you could just look at her face, hindimo mamamalayan na buntis pala siya. But then you look down and say, ‘Ah, buntispala siya!' Sexy mama!"
Getting down to business, Raymond asked if Jennylyn would be having twins.
"Puwede din!" Jennylyn exclaimed. "Kaya lang, isa lang ang nakita ko saultrasound, e. Isa lang."
Raymond followed, "Pero how does it feel na kailangan—siyempre you're asingle mom just like my sister [Ruffa Gutierrez]—doble-kayod for the baby. Howdoes that feel?"
"Siyempre, okay lang. For me, okay lang kasi basta for my baby's future.Lahat naman, e. Lahat gagawin mo at magsisikap for the baby. I'm ready."
MORBID INTRIGUE. Mo Twister, who handles controversial questions like a pro, was straightforward withJennylyn concerning the morbid text messages currently spreading like wildfire.
"We all know na kung buntis ang isang tao, e, doble din ang [pagiging] emotional. Medyomabilis mapagod, lahat," Mo began. "Last week, may kumalat na text messages nayou passed away. Aware ka ba dito?"
Jennylyn let out a wide "Oh" as she stared in disbelief. After a shortpause, she lively mused, "That time nasa Boracay ako. Nagpapamasahe ako noon.Nakahiga ako, then tumawag yung road manager ko na, ‘Hey Jen, nag-forward akong message na parang may nakasulat na Jennylyn passed away an hour ago, pleasepray for her.' So ako, parang, ‘Ha? Nagre-relax ako dito! Ano daw ikinamatayko?'" she laughed.
Did anyone else know about the text message aside from her road manager?
"Mom ko. Pero siyempre lahat sila natakot, e. Worried sila, sobra!" saidJennylyn.
Changing the subject, Raymond interjected, "What were you doing in Bora?"
"Vacation!" Jennylyn answered with a big smile.
LOVE RESERVED ONLY FOR BABY. Mo shared another rumor with Jen,but this time, it was love-related. He asked, "May reports na you're going outwith a new guy. Nag-Tagaytay daw kayo, isa siyang VJ and I wanna know kungtotoo ba yun."
"No, hindi po totoo yun," said Jen firmly. "Friend ko po yun na kasama naminni Mark [Herras] sa movie namin. Very close kami."
Since the discussion now focused on relationships, Raymond curiously askedif she and Patrick Garcia are still communicating.
"Tumatawag naman siya sa akin," revealed Jennylyn. "Twice a week, ganoon.Para i-check ako, para kumustahin ako, kung okay ako."
Raymond followed, "So now it's strictly on that, parang parent type ofconversation. Hindi na kayo masyadong lovey-dovey o wala na, ganoon?"
"Oo," she replied. "Mas naka-focus na ang attention niya sa baby. Andsiyempre, may right naman siya tumawag at kumustahin kami kasi concerned namandin siya sa health ko at sa baby."
Mo suddenly asked, "Si Mark Herras, tumatawag ba sa iyo?"
"Hindi kami nagkakausap ni Mark, e. Pero ‘pag nagkikita kami,nagkukumustahan kami."
Mark said in a recent interview that he was ready to help out Jennylynwhenever she needs it. What is Jen's say on Mark's chivalry?
"Why not?" said Jennylyn. "But siyempre, huwag sobra. Baka bigyan nila [somepeople] ng kulay.'"
"GUSTO KO GIRL" On lighter note, Raymond again mentioned how greatJennlyn looks. He said, "You're five months pregnant now. How do you feel?Comfortable ka ba? And you look great! Do you work out? Nagpe-prenatal yoga kaba?"
"No," Jen smiled. "Yung kinakain ko lang talaga, kailangan healthy.Vegetables, fish, ganoon lang."
"Sabi mo kanina na you wanted a healthy baby. Pero if you had a choice, anogusto mo, girl or boy?" asked Raymond.
"Gusto ko girl," Jennylyn answered without hesitation.
ALL NATURAL, BABY. Jennylyn choose to reveal the "Killer Question,"much to the delight of the fans. The question read, "Last year, bago ang iyongFHM pictorial, marami ang nakapansin ng pagdoble ng size ng iyong dibdib. Maylumabas na may cyst daw, pero never mo itong sinagot. Tanong, totoo ba na hindicyst ang ikinalaki ng dibdib mo kundi nagpa-breast enhancement ka?"
That was a long question. So, what was Jen's answer?
"Ayun, di ba, first time ko ngang nag-pose ng ganoon [sa FHM]? Di ba nga, sa Maximnag-pose din ako, pero not that [revealing]. So yun nga, nagpatanggal ako ngcyst sa left chest ko. Tapos yun, hindi naman ako nagpalaki ng dibdib. So,health related siya. Kailangan tanggalin dahil lumalaki siya."
"Klarong-klaro na she's naturally sexy," Raymond concluded as the crowdshowed their approval by clapping. Amidst the cheers and claps, Mo suddenlythought out loud, "Hindi ba dapat lumiit, if ever?""Yes, lumiit siya. Pero bumalik din siya sa dati,"Jennylyn answered. "Ngayon lang ulit siya..." then she broke off laughing and thetwo hosts also laughed as they got the idea.
