Jennylyn Mercado Being Linked To New Guys But Prioritizes Her Work

JENNYLYN MERCADO was recently confined at St. Luke’s Medical Center for three days due to recurrent fever. Doctors can’t seem to pinpoint what’s causing it. Jen initially didn’t want to be confined as she still has to tape for her hit drama show, “Rhodora X”, but her doctors refused to let her go and told her to rest and recover first before working again.

“Extended kami ng eight more weeks at alangan namang pabayaan ko ang show ganyang malaki ang tiwala ng GMA-7 sa amin dahil laging mataas ang ratings namin,” she says. “Buti na lang at dahil sa Holy Week, nakapag-rest din kami dahil wala kaming telecast ng Huwebes at Biyernes Santo. Nakapag-rest din ako ng somehow.”

It seems that the feeling of being debilitated stemmed from a viral infection on her upper respiratory system, aggravated by overfatigue and her lack of appetite to eat that lessened her body’s resistance.

“Hindi naman ako napapagod dahil sa trabaho dahil I really enjoy what I am doing,” she adds. “May nasagap siguro akong germs nang mag-shooting ako for an endorsement sa Manila Bay. E, napakabaho pala at polluted ng hangin doon.”

Jen is now being linked to Luis Alandy and Benjamin Alves. The latter even visited her while she was at the hospital. She stresses that nothing romantic is going on between her and these guys as she prefers to be unattached these days. “Hindi ko nga maintindihan kung bakit hinahanapan ako ng boyfriend ng ibang tao. E, sinabi ko ng hindi ko priority ngayon ang magkaroon ng lovelife,” she adds.

Jen is currently preparing to launch a new album that she has just finished recording for GMA Records. It’ll be released as part of her 10th anniversary in showbiz and as a special birthday offering to her fans when she celebrates her 27th birthday on May 15.

In “Rhodora X”, things get worse when Jennylyn as the evil Roxanne teams up with Mark Anthony Fernandez as Nico so they can get back Yasmien Kurdi as Angela for Mark. Mark is wanted by cops, along with his brother Ken Chan, because of the complaint of Mark Herras’ mom, Lollie Mara, in their business deals. He and Ken plan to escape to Hongkong aboard their own yacht and then to Russia. He wants to take Yasmien with them. Roxanne connives with them to fulfil their evil plan. Yasmien agrees to sacrifice herself and go with them for the safety of her sister Rhodora.
