23 Jul – Jessy Mendiola recently defended boyfriend Luis Manzano over netizens' allegations that the TV personality has been doing nothing to assist ABS-CBN employees who are out of work due to the network shutdown.
As reported on Inquirer, the actress recently posted a photo of Manzano on Instagram Story while he was busy checking his phone, saying that the host has been working the phone for the past three days to organise a job fair group with some of his friends to relocate and help other Kapamilyas who have lost their job.
"I know I shouldn't post it, but I am so proud of you, love. You've been putting others first before yourself," she wrote.
Mendiola also revealed that Manzano's first reaction to the veto against ABS-CBN's franchise renewal was "how about my staff?" (meaning the staff of his shows).
"You're not posting about it, so I am doing it. People say that you kept quiet at the height of what is happening. What they don't know is that you have been working hard for the unemployed. Even if you can't help everyone, the important thing is you do everything you can."
"You have a good heart. We are very thankful to you," she added.
