Joel Mondina, a.k.a Pambansang Kolokoy, denied that he had a relationship with former Eat Bulaga host Gladys ‘Chuchay’ Gueverra, who’s now living in the United States.
In an interview with Ogie Diaz, Joel said that his relationship with Chuchay was only for show, and they’re just collaborating in creating content.
It can be recalled that last January, Joel, and Chuchay made their first video.
However, he admitted that he was having a relationship already with another woman, but he never showed her publicly.
”Yung wife ko ngayon, never siyang lumabas sa videos. Siya ang hinuhusgahan. Siya ang kawawa. Minsan nga sumasama na ‘yung loob niya. Sa tingin niya hindi ko siya kayang ipagtanggol.’Yun ang usapan namin palagi na hindi man lang daw ako mag-reply,” Joel explained.
Joel also narrated that his current partner almost gave up on their relationship because of the comments she read from netizens.
He said that his current partner called Marites and volunteered to return the internet celebrity.
According to him, his current partner saw how he was affected by his separation from his children.
Marites also allegedly do not want to show their children to him.
“Yung tumawag. Ang kwento niyan, tumawag talaga siya. Pero ang kinagabihan niyan, ‘yun yung time na talagang hiwalay na ako sa mga bata. Hindi ko sila nakikita. Dahil nga ayaw ‘nung isa. Sabi niya, makikita mo lang yung mga bata kung babalik ka dito sa bahay,” he said.
“I’m sorry we love the same man. Pero hindi ko na kayang makita siyang ganyan. Dahil sa mga bata, kaya pinababalik ko na siya diyan sa bahay niyo. Sana lang ayusin niyo ang hindi niyo mapagkasunduan,” Joel quoting his current partner.
However, Joel said that he decided not to return to Marites because the latter belittled him.
As of writing, Marites has yet to give a response to Joel’s interview.
