MANILA, Philippines – Jinkee Pacquiao has minced no words in expressing how she felt about the alleged extramarital affair of her husband, People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao, with Krista Ranillo
In her exclusive interview with StarStudio Magazine, Jinkee was brutally honest when asked how she feels about the sexy starlet.
“I hate her. Parang hindi niya inisip na may pamilya ‘yong tao. Bakit hindi siya na lang ‘yong umiwas sa tao o sa camera? Siya pa ‘yong nakalantad ng harap-harapan. Silang dalawa, hindi nila ako nirerespeto. Kung ako matinong babae, hindi ako nakabuntot sa lalaking may asawa,” she said.
Jinkee also revealed why the rumored affair had nearly pushed her over the edge.
“Kasi ‘yung kay Ara (Mina) at Valerie (Concepcion) nagtatago sila. Pero itong girl na ito (Krista), sa isang interview yata, sabi niya, parang sa Team Pacquiao kasama siya, part siya ng entourage. Nakikita sila magkasama sa States o sa Baguio. Nag-away kami [ni Manny], lumala, tumagal. Usually ang away namin, one or 2 weeks lang. Ngayon ang pinakamatagal.”
Mina and Concepcion were also romantically linked to the Filipino boxing sensation. And like Ranillo, the two actresses had worked with Manny in a film.
In another version of StarStudio’s January issue, Ranillo, meanwhile, showed the other side of her that has been overshadowed by the controversy.
Although she remains mum on the issue, the daughter of former matinee idol, Mat Ranillo III, revealed how she is handling stress.
“[The stress] doesn’t go away, but when you pray you get a sense of calm after. You feel reassured that everything will be all right.”
She also acknowledged that intrigues are part of her job.
“I guess that’s really part of the job if you decide to be an actor. They say you’re public property. I don’t really agree with that, but that’s how it is. You just have to accept it,” she said.
Amid the controversy, she added that it is a big comfort to know that she would always have the love and support of her family.
“The best thing, I guess, about being Krista is having a family, being loved by the family and supported by the family,” she said.
Their full interviews are available in the dual January issues of StarStudio Magazine.
