- Aiko Melendez and Maricar de Mesa mend fences after six long years of avoiding each other
- The reconciliation happened on the set of the drama anthology series “Tadhana”
- Maricar said she immediately felt everything was healed from that point
- Aiko believed their reconciliation was providential, “I think it's God's way of patching things up”
Aiko Melendez and Maricar de Mesa ended six long years of giving each other a cold shoulder after the two finally patched things up and became friends once again.
The two recently met on the set of “Tadhana,” a drama anthology aired weekly on GMA7. In a Chika Minute report by Aubrey Carampel on GMA News “24 Oras” last Wednesday, the two mutually buried the hatchet in a somewhat simultaneous manner when they saw each other on the new episode of the TV series.
When asked about her reaction when they first saw each other on the set, Maricar said everything looked and felt like before. “Natural lang. Parang dati pa rin siya,” the actress said.
She then narrated how she gently poked Aiko as the latter had her back on the Kapuso actress when she first saw her. When the “Apoy sa Dagat” star turned to see who touched her and saw that it was Maricar, she immediately smiled as she blurted out “Mare!”
“Gumanon siya agad. Kasi kinalabit ko siya nakatalikod. Parang ano lang ang gaang, parang nagkaintindihan kami na tapos na. That's it. Parang nag-heal lahat,” De Mesa recalled.
Aiko, for her part, revealed they did not discuss anymore what has happened to both of them that caused the two friends to avoid each other for six years. For her, there is no reason to discuss it as it was all in the past. “Siguro ganun talaga kapag real friends, wala nang usapan kung ano yung pinagkasamaan niyo ng loob. Basta ang importante maayos kayo,” she explained.
Melendez, who is a professed born-again Christian, attributed her reconciliation with Maricar as providential. “I think it's God's way of patching things up,” said Aiko.
