• Rep. Vilma Santos-Recto met her son, Luis Manzano’s new apple of the eye, Jessy Mendiola
  • A picture of the two women is making rounds online but it is unclear if it was taken recently
  • The veteran actress has always been clear that she doesn’t meddle with her son’s love life

MANILA, Philippines –  Lone District of Lipa, Batangas Representative Vilma Santos-Recto finally met the ‘FHM Sexiest Woman’ for this year, Jessy Mendiola, who is the new apple of the eye of her eldest son, Luis Manzano.

A picture of the two women is making rounds online after it was uploaded on the veteran actress-turned politician’s Facebook fan page on Monday, July 18. It is unclear if the photo was taken recently.

In her past interviews, whenever she’s asked about her son’s love life, the ‘Star fo All Seasons’ has always been clear that she doesn’t interfere in that aspect because she is confident that Luis is mature enough to decide for himself.

Recently, Luis and Jessy admitted that they are going out.

Luis said it would be weird if he denied that they are indeed going out because there are photos of two of them circulating online.

Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP)quoted him as saying during the launch of the new season of “Minute To Win It: The Last Man Standing” on Monday, July 11: “Di kami puwede mag-deny because we have pictures online. Ang weird naman kung ide-deny ko iyon na may pictures online, kasi anything else, gagamitin against me. Sabi nga, isa sa pinakabugbog na statement bawat hearing yung  ‘I invoke my right against self-incrimination'”.

[We cannot deny it because we have pictures online. It would be weird if I would still deny it when there are pictures online because anything else, they’ll use it against me. As they say, one of the most overused statements in every hearing is ‘I invoke my right to self-incrimination.’]

He also clarified that Jessy has nothing to do with his breakup with their fellow Kapamilya star Angel Locsin.

According to an article published by Rappler, after the 35-year-old actor-TV host made his admission, Mendiola revealed that Luis started courting her around May this year.
