Jennylyn Mercado Has “Sapawan” Issue With Jessy Mendiola?

Is there really a “sapawan” issue between Jennylyn Mercado and Jessy Mendiola?

There is an allegation that a “sapawan” issue is happening between Kapuso actress Jennylyn Mercado and Kapamilya actress Jessy Mendiola.

It is regarding the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry of Quantum Films this 2018. The movie ‘The Girl In Orange’ features Jessy as the leading lady.

In previous years, Jennylyn was the one who starred in QF’s entry for the film festival. She was the leading lady in ‘English Only, Please‘, ‘Walang Forever‘ and ‘All Of You’.

On the other hand, this year is a different story. Jessy will be the star of the movie from the said film company.

Based on the article published in Pang-Masa, members of the press who are close to Atty. Aloji Alonso, the lawyer-producer behind these movies, wondered why they changed the choice of their leading lady.

Alonso was asked regarding this matter during the press conference for the movie ‘Pinay Beauty She’s Now White’.


“Mahilig ako sa letter J! Ha! Ha! Ha!” he said with jest.

Reportedly, Jessy has already started shooting for the MMFF entry. After a few days, it was said that the producer of the movie seemed to be satisfied of her performance.

The fact that the Kapamilya actress is slimmer now added to the satisfaction rate. This is because she has been working out intensely.

Aside from the “sapawan” issue, another intriguing topic is being linked between Jennylyn Mercado and Jessy Mendiol.

This is about a common man in their lives, Luis Manzano.

The ‘I Can See Your Voice’ host is the ex-boyfriend of the Kapuso actress and he is the current boyfriend of the Kapamilya actress.

Small world, right?

Based on the article, this could mean “Jennlyn’s loss is Jessy’s gain”.
