Manilyn Reynes: jealousy has no place in my Marriage
Former actor Aljon Jimenez doesn’t at all mind that his wife Manilyn ‘Mane’ Reynes is being paired up again with Janno Gibbs, a huge feat considering the pair had been a successful love team in their teens and were once former flames.
The Manilyn-Janno love team will be revived after almost 30 years in the upcoming GMA7 teleserye ‘My Best Friend Forever’ (My BFF). But that’s not all — joining them in the cast is another former love team of Mane: Kimpee de Leon.
With Mane set to be surrounded by former onscreen partners, who still have plenty of supporters, many say this might be cause for jealousy for her husband Aljon. But this is far from the truth as Aljon himself is a self-confessed fan of the Manilyn-Janno tandem.
What’s the secret behind the lack of jealousy in Aljon and Manilyn’s marriage? They know how to separate their careers from their personal life.
‘Alam naman [ni Aljon] na trabaho lang talaga ito. Sa tagal na din namin sa showbiz ay ganun na ang respeto at tiwala namin sa isa’t isa,’ said Manilyn.
But the actress jokingly added ‘Ewan ko sa husband ko… Kine-claim niya siguro na siya ang number one fan namin ni Janno, dahil husband ko nga siya, kaya siya ang unang dapat matuwa.’
Manilyn and Aljon have been married for 17 years and have three sons.
Now that she’s been metaphorically given the go signal by her husband, Mane said she is very excited to be paired up again with Janno and to bring back the 80s kilig to their fans.
