It was an ordinary taping day for Jessy Mendiola. She was on her way to the set of her primetime series “Maria Mercedes” when suddenly, the cast, the staff, and even members of her fans club surprised her and welcomed her with loud cheers to celebrate her 21st birthday.
“I wasn’t expecting it at all. I was just so happy that the people I love were there to celebrate my birthday,” she said.
At her young age, Jessy has been truly blessed with a wonderful showbiz career. When asked what else she could ask for her birthday, the Kapamilya actress said that she just hopes that she will always have good health.
Jessy also shared how tough the year was for her, yet she remains thankful for all the good things that happened to her.
“I’ve been through a lot of trials this year. They weren’t easy but I learned from the experience. At the end of the day, God is really good and He will find ways to make you smile again by blessing you with more than what you asked for. I am truly thankful. This is one very memorable year for me,” she said.
One of the things she’s thankful for is the continuous support of viewers for her series “Maria Mercedes.” The Mexicanovela adaptation’s rating is on an uptrend nationwide, especially in Metro Manila. Jessy’s second movie under Star Cinema, “Call Center Girl,” also raked millions in the box office.
Recently, Jessy was also among the hot topics that trended online for one whole day after a video produced by the fast food chain she is endorsing went viral. In the video, Jessy mesmerized UAAP superstar Jeric Teng with her captivating beauty as she sat down with him for a meal.
A lot of projects also await Jessy in 2014 that include a movie project opposite John Lloyd Cruz. Invites for events and out-of-town shows also continue to come in.
When asked about her love life, Jessy shortly quipped, “I’m still waiting.”
Present during the birthday surprise were Business Unit Head Ruel Bayani, director Rechie Del Carmen, production manager Riza Ebriega, executive producer Des Juan, cast memebrs Vina Morales, Devon Seron, Yogo Singh, Jason Abalos, and Tess Antonio, and members of Jessy’s official fans club Jessylicious.
Jessy continues to sizzle primetime viewing every weeknight as Maria Mercedes. This week, Mercedes starts her revenge on Malvina (Vivian Velez) by stripping her off of her power. Will anger and hate consume all of Mercedes? How will Malvina turn things in her favor after learning that Mercedes weakness is still her son Luis (Jake Cuenca)?

Pinay Maria Mercedes, may sagot na sa estado ng puso…
JESSY MENDIOLA, SINORPESA PARA SA KANYANG IKA-21 KAARAWAN
Sinorpresa ng cast, staff at miyembro ng kanyang fans club si Jessy Mendiola kamakailan sa set ng kanyang primetime serye na “Maria Mercedes” para ipagdiwang ang kanyang ika-21 kaarawan.
Laking gulat ng Pinay Maria Mercedes nang biglang sumambulat sa kanya ang mga katrabaho at masugid na tagahanga sa inaakala niyang next location ng kanyang kukunang eksena.
“Nagulat talaga ako. Masaya ako kasi halos lahat ng taong mahal ko nandoon,” sabi ni Jessy.
Nang tanungin kung ano ang kanyang birthday wish, hiniling ng Kapamilya actress na magkaroon lang ng maayos na kalusugan. Inamin niya ring hind naging madali ang taong ito para sa kanya.
“Madami akong naranasan na problema kung saan natuto ako. Hindi naging madali pero masasabi ko namang pinatatag ako nito. Pero sa kabila noon, mabait talaga ang Diyos at binigyan niya rin ako ng blessings na lubos kong ipinagpapasalamat. Iba talaga itong taon na ‘to. Hindi ko makakalimutan.”
Kabilang sa ipinagpapasalamat ni Jessy ay ang patuloy na pagtangkilik at pagtaas ng ratings ng kanyang serye na “Maria Mercedes” sa buong bansa at lalo na sa Metro Manila. Tumabo rin sa takilya rin ang kanyang ikalawang pelikula under Star Cinema kasama sina Pokwang at Enchong Dee na “Call Center Girl.”
Kamakailan ay naging trending topic din si Jessy online sa loob ng isang buong araw dahil sa viral video ng kanyang ineendorsyong fast food chain kung saan natulala at natameme sa kanyang ganda ang UAAP superstar na si Jeric Teng.
Marami na ring nakapilang projects si Jessy, kabilang na ang pelikula kasama si John Lloyd Cruz, at kaliwa’t kanan ang requests sa kanya para sa mga event at out-of-town shows.
Talaga namang maganda ang takbo ng showbiz career ni Jessy pero nang tanungin tungkol sa kanyang lovelife, ang maikling sagot niya ay “wala eh. Nag-aantay pa rin.”
Present sa birthday surprise ang Business Unit Head na si Ruel Bayani, director Rechie Del Carmen, production manager Riza Ebriega, executive producer Des Juan, cast na sina Vina Morales, Devon Seron, Yogo Singh, Jason Abalos, at Tess Antonio, at ang official fans club ni Jessy na Jessylicious.
Gabi-gabi pa ring napapanood si Jessy sa mas tumitinding kwento ng “Maria Mercedes.” Hindi na nga paawat si Mercedes sa paghihiganti kay Malvina (Vivian Velez) at isa-isa niyang kinukuha ang lahat dito. Tuluyan na ba si Mercedes na lalamunin ng galit at poot? Paano siya maiisahan ni Malvina lalo pa’t nalaman niya na kahinaan pa rin ng dalaga ang anak nitong si Luis (Jake Cuenca)?
Huwag palalampasin ang inaabangang pagbangon ni “Maria Mercedes” gabi gabi, pagkatapos ng “Got to Believe” sa Primetime Bida ng ABS-CBN.
