Aiko Melendez generously opened up about her love life. She is currently in a relationship with the mayor of Subic, Mayor Jay Khonghun.
As reported by PEP.ph, Aiko openly shared the struggles of having a politician beau. Aside from that since she has also tried politics before, she compared it with being a politician.
“Pag politician ka kasi, iba yung stress mo, e, kasi you’re running your own campaign, di ba? Pero pag politician’s girlfriend ka, akala mo hindi ka na madadamay sa dumi ng pulitika. Pati ikaw pala, damay din," she confessed.
“Kumbaga kasi, lalo na nakadikit ako kay Mayor ngayon, na he’s running for vice governor, so kahit ako, dun sa mudslinging, damay din ako. Unlike dati, direkta na ako lang, wala nang madadamay, di ba? I can shield my family, especially my kids. Now, damay-damay, e," she added.
The 42-year-old actress also mentioned how they handle bashers.
According to her, ignoring them is the best way to do because at the end of the day, his boyfriend, Mayor Jay's contribution to their town is what really matters.
"Kami, tuloy lang kami sa pagtulong. Tambakan man si Mayor ng mga intriga, ng mga negative, wala kaming sasabihin sa mga kalaban namin. Kasi, gusto lang naming patunayan na puwede kaming manalo or kaya naming manalo nang hindi naninira. Dahil yung mga projects na nagawa ni Mayor, yung mga merits niya will speak itself to make him win.," she stated.
Aiko Melendez is a popular actress who has been paired with Richard Gomez, Jomari Yllana and Aga Muhlach in some movies.
Her one of the most remarkable roles was in Kapamilya drama series 'Wild Flower' as Emilia Ardiente.
