MANILA, Philippines -- Young stars JM de Guzman and Jessy Mendiola are giving their once-blooming relationship another try.
Mendiola and de Guzman dated exclusively for eight months before the "Angelito" actor professed his love for the actress on national television when he also guested on "KrisTV" in August.
"Wala naman akong hinihiling kapalit. If ever na ayaw ng Diyos na siya ang babae o hindi talaga, matatanggap ko pa din. Basta masasabi ko lang ay napakabuti niyang tao, napakaganda niya sa loob at sa labas. Hindi ko alam kung paano ako tinamaan," the actor said during that memorable episode.
That declaration took Mendiola by surprise such that they stopped communicating after the episode.
But now the "Paraiso" actress admitted that they are trying to start all over again.
"Well it stopped for a while, pero now we are trying to reconnect and fix our differences," Mendiola told host Kris Aquino when she guested on "KrisTV" on Wednesday.
"Naayos naman ('yung gulo). Ano lang medyo nasa awkward stage lang ulit kami kasi we are starting all over again," she added.
Mendiola revealed that she reconnected with de Guzman only a few weeks ago.
"Recently lang , siguro mga two or three weeks ago, kasi nagpalit ako ng number. Hinahanap niya talaga yung number ko," she said.
Asked if she agrees with de Guzman's previous declaration that she is the one for him, the actress replied: "Pwede ko siyang mahalin ng pang-habambuhay."
