Jolina Magdangal lauded her “Magandang Buhay” co-host Melai Cantiveros’ professionalism, noting the comedienne never showed any clue while at work that she and Jason Francisco were having marital problems.
“Hindi mo siya makikitaan kung ano ‘yung nagraramdaman niya kapag nagte-take na. Kayang-kaya niyang dalahin. Kaya natatawa ako na ganun ‘yung lumabas na sinabi ni Jason kasi parang sa pagkakaalam namin kay Melai, hindi naman ganun kagrabe. Ganun na pala,” Magdangal said.
Magdangal said she admires Cantiveros’ strength because it is not easy to make other people laugh when you have problems.
“Hindi biro ang pinagdadaanan niya pero hindi mo siya makikitaan na ‘Kawawa naman ako, intindihin niyo ako, hindi muna ako magte-take.’ Go, go siya. Very professional siya, very hands-on sa anak niya,” she said.
More importantly, Magdangal said she respects Cantiveros for not saying anything against Francsico amid the controversy.
“Hindi ko nakitaan si Melai na siniraan niya ‘yung asawa niya. Kung ano man ang bina-bash ng tao, wala kang maririnig na ganun kay Melai. Asawa ‘yun ha at kaibigan kami. Kahit anong pamba-bash, kumampi siya sa asawa niya,” she said.
Although she doesn’t want to meddle in Cantiveros and Francisco’s personal life, Magdangal assured them that she will just be there for the couple whenever they need her.
Francisco surprised a lot of people last week when he announced on Instagram that his relationship with Cantiveros has reached an end. (MNS)
