Noong isang linggo ay nagulat ang marami sa pag-amin ni Jaclyn Jose na tila tutol ang pamilya ni Jake Ejercito para sa anak ng aktres na si Andi Eigenmann.
Si Jake ay anak ni dating President Joseph Ejercito Estrada sa dating aktres na si Laarni Enriquez.
Matagal nang mali-link sina Andi at Jake kaya naman isa ito sa mga kinamusta ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) kay Jaclyn sa thankgiving presscon ng A Secret Affair noong Oktubre 30.
Bagamat alam niya raw na inspired ang anak niya dahil kay Jake, sinabi ni Jaclyn na “bawal” ito.
Dagdag pa ng award-winning actress, “Hindi ko sinabing sila ni Jake, ang sabi ko lang, mero’n… Dagdagan natin—baka ayaw ng parents.”
Gayunman, hindi na nagbigay ng karagdagang detalye si Jaclyn dahil aniya, “Love ko rin naman si Erap."
Sabi pa niya, “Magkakaibigan kami bago it happened... Ano na lang, give it to the children. Let them fall in love.”

BEING A MOM. Bilang reaksiyon sa naging pahayag ng kanyang ina, idinaan ni Andi sa kanyang blog na andieigengirl.com ang kanyang saloobin.
May pamagat na “Since Chismis is Easily Spread Around, Maybe Something Sincere Would Too," nai-post ni Andi ang kanyang blog entry kahapon, November 4.
Sinimulan ng Kapamilya young actress ang kanyang blog entry sa pagsasabi kung ano ang “advantage” ng social media para sa kanya.
Ani Andi, ang social media ay nagagamit niya bilang “way of properly telling people how I feel or what I want to say, without the press getting it wrong or twisting my words around, well, since I am already writing it myself.”
Pagkatapos nito ay inihayag na ng young actress ang kanyang nararamdaman tungkol sa mga naging pahayag ng ina sa tila pagtutol ng pamilya ni Jake sa kanilang relasyon.
Humingi ng tawad si Andi sa mga taong nagmukhang masama dahil sa mga sinabi ni Jaclyn.
Pero paglilinaw ng young actress, hindi intensiyon ng kanyang ina na siraan ang ibang tao.
Sabi niya, “Maybe at that point, she too was only being a mom.”
Hindi raw galit si Andi sa nasabi ng kanyang ina.
Nauunawaan daw niyang gusto lamang ng kanyang ina na ipakita sa buong mundo na mayroon din siyang karapatan na makuha ang “best” sa kanyang buhay.
Wika pa ni Andi, “I also know that she couldn’t have possibly done that to throw Jake and I under the bus on purpose.”
THE BEST FOR THEIR SON. Inamin din ni Andi sa kanyang blog ang tunay niyang nararamdaman para kay Jake, at kung gaano ang paghanga niya sa mga magulang nito dahil sa magandang pagpapalaki nila rito.
Sabi ni Andi, “I wouldn’t have fallen in love with such a fine young man if not for the amazing parents he has that surely raised him well.
“People who brought him up to be the smart, kind hearted, humble gentleman that he is.”
Dagdag pa ni Andi, mas nauunawaan na niya ngayon ang mga magulang ni Jake kung makaramdam sila ng pag-aalinlangan sa kanya dahil isa na rin siyang ina.
Kahit pa man hindi sapat ang “wisdom” na mayroon siya bilang isang magulang, sigurado raw si Andi na “both our parents will do anything just as long as we, the children, will never be put to harm.
“So just as a lot of you may understand my situation and believe that I still deserve to be loved and respected amidst what I have gone through, we should all understand that his parents only want the best for their son.”
Sa huli, sinabi ni Andi na alam niyang marami ang naniniwalang hindi siya nararapat at nababagay kay Jake.
Pero giit niya, “I can prove them wrong.
“Im not perfect, and Im only human. People make mistakes.
"But that doesn’t mean were not allowed to learn from them and deserve forgiveness too.
“I trust that everything will be alright in God’s time.”
ANDI’S BLOG POST. Narito ang kabuuang blog post ni Andi Eigenmann na may pamagat na “Since Chismis is Easily Spread Around, Maybe Something Sincere Would Too”:
I never write entries anymore but I guess this is one advantage of social media. I can use this as a way of properly telling people how I feel or what I want to say, without the press getting it wrong or twisting my words around, well, since I am already writing it myself.
In behalf of my mother, Id just like to apologize for certain things she might have said that mightve put certain people in a bad light. I know for a fact that it wasnt her intention at all. Maybe at that point, she too was only being a mom. Just as your parents would want whats best for you, she just wants the same for me, and this time Im guessing she just wanted to let others know that I deserve it too. (in her opinion that is). Im not angry at my mother, dont get me wrong. Besides the fact that Im not allowing myself to, cus i have respect for her, I also know that she couldnt have possibly done that to throw Jake and I under the bus on purpose.
Anyway, off to my point. Wait, what is my point?
I just really hope Id be granted an opportunity to apologize personally, to show more sincerity than this blog post. But I guess this could be a good way to start. Maybe somehow Id be heard. Well just incase, here goes. I wouldnt have fallen in love with such a fine young man if not for the amazing parenst he has that surely raised him well. People who brought him up to be the smart, kind hearted, humble gentleman that he is. Therefore, I know for a fact that it will be wrong for all of you to judge his parents negatively just because they only want what’s best for him. Now that Im a mother myself, its easier for me to see the picture for their angle. Both from my mom’s and his. I may not be as experienced as they are, Maybe I have yet to gain even half the amount of wisdom they have, but what Im sure of is that both our parents will do anything just as long as we, the children, will never be put to harm. So just as a lot of you may understand my situation and believe that I still deserve to be loved and respected amidst what I have gone through, we should all understand that his parents only want the best for their son. I can attest to the fact that they do not have closed minds at all and that there maybe two sides to this story as well. I will do the honor of throwing myself under the bus, myself, by trying to speak on behalf of them too. The mistake I made in the past was not the fact that I have Ellie. It goes beyond that. Obviously, Ellie wouldnt have happened if her dad was out of the picture already. And then maybe Jake and I couldve lived happily ever after.. I trust that you guys be smart enough to figure that one out for yourselves.
Normally, the Andi that learned from her mistakes wouldve just chosen to keep quiet and wait for things to die down. I would have chosen to leave all this up to God and trust that he’d keep Jake and I happy. But its harder when its someone else you truly care about that gets affected. I know maybe Ill never be good enough for him in other people’s eyes. But I also know that because I do care a lot, I can prove them wrong. Im not perfect, and Im only human. People make mistakes. But that doesn’t mean were not allowed to learn from them and deserve forgiveness too.
I trust that everything will be alright in God’s time.
