I am posting some of the things I read and heard about the alleged Manny-Krista affair.
I read Cristy Fermin’s blind item that a famous actress came to pick up a famous personality’s items which were to be auctioned for the benefit of typhoon Ondoy victims. They were in the receiving area of the hotel suite where the man was staying at the time. He was said to be uncomfortable like he was hiding something, and the actress sensed this. To the latter’s surprise, she saw the guy’s alleged girlfriend waving hello at her behind a room.
I read Lolit Solis’s article about an unconfirmed report that Ara Mina went to Baguio unannounced to visit Manny. Manny’s staff informed Manny who was reportedly in a room upstairs with Krista. But Manny told his staff to tell Ara to wait. After about 3 hours, Manny went down from the room, with Krista behind him. Ara lashed out at Manny for having her wait, saying, “Paghihintayin mo ako ng ganu’n katagal dahil lang sa babaeng ito! Sino ba iyan?” Krista reportedly said something like, “Ewan ko sa ‘yo… wala akong pakialam sa ‘yo…”
I saw a Youtube video with Manny leaving the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” show (where he sang Sometimes When We Touch). Seated right beside him in his Mercedes car was a lady (who was obviously not Jinkee) covering her face. It was said that Jinkee was not yet in the US at that time.
I heard that Manny fetched Jinky at the Los Angeles airport and the couple were not seen kissing or hugging when they saw each other.
Pacman won, felling Cotto in a 12th round TKO. Jinkee was seen at the bout, saying she could not believe that Manny would be so honoured with winning his 7th title in different weight divisions.
During “The Buzz,” Kris showed Ruffa and Boy a text message sent by Mareng Jinkee, which seemed to shock the three hosts. Kris mentioned that Jinkee said that she and her husband would talk after the fight.
I read that Jinkee did not attend Manny’s victory party and mini-concert at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
I saw the video where, during a Thanksgiving Mass when a priest preached that the most important thing in the world is the family, Jinkee could not control her tears, ignoring Manny’s efforts to comfort her.
I read that Gina Alajar, on her facebook account, said that “If I am Jinkee Pacquiao I will not give up Manny… Krista Ranillo is not at all worth it!!!” Answering comments on her facebook, the veteran actress alleged that Krista liked married men.
I saw on the news that Jinky’s parents and relatives in Sarangani (where Pacman was eyeing a congressional seat in 2010) were sad upon seeing Jinky break down in tears during the thanksgiving mass.
I saw pictures of Manny and Krista taken when they were together in Baguio.
If Manny’s alleged affair with Krista were true, I wondered if Jinkee would forgive Manny when Manny begs for her forgiveness again.
In a YES! Magazine interview (July 27, 2009), Jinkee admits that she gets hurt every time Manny “forgets” that he has a wife, but in the end she still finds her husband endearing and hard to resist. Jinkee said, “Bumait naman siya,Isang buwan, ‘tapos balik na naman. Inom dito, sugal dito. Ganoon siya pag may kasalanan. Sobrang bait! Two weeks, three weeks, one month ang pinakamatagal. Pag guilty, kahit ano ipagawa mo, puwede. Kahit ano! Puwede siyang utus-utusan dito. Maglilinis siya. Magma-mop ng kuwarto namin, kasi alam niyang ako mismo ang nagma-mop. Kung puwede lang, siya na magligpit lahat! Sabi ko nga, ‘Ilang ulit nang ganyan.'”
In that same article, Jinkee said that “Ang dami ko nang napagdaanan. Ang dami ko nang natutunan. Kailangan maging strong para makayanan ko lahat. Hindi ko nga ma-imagine na nakayanan ko lahat ng napagdaanan ko. Minsan, iniisip ko na gusto ko na mag-give-up, pero hindi puwede. Siyempre, nasasaktan tayo, di ba? Pero kung ‘yong sobra-sobra na at paulit-ulit, ayoko naman ng ganoon. Napapagod din naman ako. Pero sa akin, ayoko ng hiwalay. Ayoko na ‘yong mga anak ko, iisipin nila na wala silang ama, walang daddy. Yon ang iniisip ko na sana ‘wag mangyari. Gusto ko lang naman ‘yong respeto.”
I saw Manny’s arrival ceremonies at the NAIA, with Jinkee staying close to Manny the entire time. The pair looked happy together and exchanged kisses upon prodding by media people.
Watch out for the next round…..
