The real score about the marriage of Jessa Zaragoza and Dingdong Avanzado

JESSA ZARAGOZA is only 32 years old but she accepted playing Sarah Lahbati’s mom in “Kokay”, now rating well on GMA’s Dramarama sa Hapon. “Puede naman kasi Sarah is 18, so that means 14 lang ako when I gave birth to her,” she says. “In real life, mom na rin naman ako talaga to my daughter Jayden who’s now 9. Also, maganda yung role ko as Angela, kakaiba ang challenge. May back story kami ni Gary Estrada as my husband. Deborah Sun, a mangkukulam, curses us kaya ang anak naming si Sarah will turn into a frog each time her feet gets wet. To protect her from people, pinalaki ko siya sa gubat na malayo sa mga tao. Pero na-meet naman niya roon si TJ Trinidad nang maaksidente ito sa kabayo and he’ll take her to the city.”

Jessa remains slim and sexy as on the day when she became a hit singer with “Bakit Pa”. Her secret is a certain kind of diet based on one’s blood type. “Alamin mo lang kung anong blood type mo then find out what foods ang bagay sa iyo and what to avoid.”

Jessa laughs off rumors she and husband Dingdong Avanzado are no longer living together. “Ba’t ba nila kami pilit pinaghihiwalay? He just helped me with my new album. Tuloy pa rin ang career ko as a singer. My new song, ‘Nasaan’, is now the theme song of GMA’s soap ‘Kung Aagawin Mo ang Langit.’”
