- Jessy Mendiola hit back at a basher
- She has been on hiatus
- She is now part of the upcoming ABS-CBN series Sandugo
Kapamilya actress Jessy Mendiola hit back at a basher who made disparaging remarks about the present state of her career.
Jessy recently posted a photo on her Instagram account that elicited both praise and criticism from netizens.
One user commented: “Ganda sana kaso wala ng show/project.”
Jessy did not let the comment slide and responded with: “Sandugo po:) choice ko po magpahinga din.”
The actress is currently part of the new series of ABS-CBN titled Sandugo which is slated for release this September along with Ejay Falcon, Elisse Joson, Aljur Abrenica, and Maika Rivera.
Jessy was not able to renew her contract with Star Magic after it ended in October 2018 and this created speculations that she is now transferring to another network. The rumors only ended when she was announced as part of Sandugo.
The Kapamilya star shared with LionhearTV that she left the talent arm of ABS-CBN in order to “explore other options” in showbiz.
“The reason why I left is I just want to explore other options. But Star Magic has been so good to me and they’ve really taken good care of me ever since I started in the industry kaya no bad blood. Star Magic will always be a part of my career,” Jessy said.
Jessy’s last TV appearance was in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano in 2018, but her last regular drama series was the teleserye You’re My Home, which ended in March 2016.
She was launched as a member of the Star Magic Batch 15. Her first project with the Kapamilya network was Star Magic Presents: Abt Ur Luv Ur Lyf 2.
But her biggest break was when she bagged the titular role of ABS-CBN’s remake of the hit telenovela Maria Mercedes in 2013.
