Being married to a superstar athlete is not a walk in the park. For Jinkee Jamora Pacquiao—the spouse of Filipino ring icon Manny Pacquiao—all the fame, attention and admiration presently being enjoyed by her husband has had an adverse effect on her self-esteem.
Talking about her sexy figure, thanks to the Belo Medical Group's new Belo Diet Injections, Jinkee said, "Importante din 'yon [maintaining her sexy physique] sa akin. Kailangan kung makita nila si Manny na sikat na sikat, kailangan makita din nila 'yong wife na maganda 'tsaka sexy."
A grand launching was staged by the Belo Medical Group last Tuesday, August 11, at Dolce Superclub on T. Morato Ave., Quezon City.
Jinkee's decision to take good care of herself has caught the attention of her world-famous husband. Manny has become extra-interested in her affairs and social activities, revealed Jinkee.
"Basta tsini-check niya kung nasa'n ako, sino 'yong mga kasama ko. 'Pag may kasama kaming lalaki, tinatanong niya kung 'Sino ba 'yan? Sa'n mo nakilala 'yan?' mga ganun,'" the mother of four proudly said.
HEY, JEALOUSY. With Manny's stature as one of the most famous and wealthy athletes in the world of sports today, Jinkee admitted being prone to moments of intense insecurity. Being a celebrated personality, with a fat bank account to boot, it is easy to imagine women easily gravitating to Manny's orbit regardless of his well-known status as a married man.
"Oo naman," Jinkee readily acknowledged when asked if she feels threatened by other women's attention on her husband. "'Pag nagmamahal ka siyempre nandun 'yong selos. Ganun talaga 'pag sikat, normal 'yon sa isang sikat na tao. Pero alam ko naman na iniisip ni Manny na 'yong temptation, kailangan labanan. Kasi ako, malaki ang tiwala ko kay Manny na mahal niya ako. Nagkakaintindihan kami, 'yon naman ang pinakaimportante, na magkasundo kaming dalawa."
GETTING USED TO INTRIGUES. Manny's phenomenal success in the field of boxing has likewise turned the spotlight to his entire family. It took considerable time for Jinkee to get used to show business. "Ayoko ng intriga," she candidly confessed.
But how does she usually confront Manny on certain intrigues, particularly with those questioning his fidelity as a husband?
"Tinatanong ko siya in a nice way. Hindi ko siya inaaway o sinusungitan. Siguro dati kasi hindi ako sanay sa intriga kaya dati 'pag tinatanong ko siya galit na ako, 'pag kinu-confront ko siya nagagalit na 'ko," Jinkee revealed.
Jinkee's Belo engagement is one of the many endorsement deals tucked under her belt. Doing films and television shows, however, is not part of her immediate plans, mainly because of her responsibility to her children.
"'Yon lang ang gusto kong gawin, commercial, mag-endorse or billboard, pictorial, mga magazine, 'yon, gusto ko 'yon. Huwag lang movie. Siguro 'yong mag-guest ka lang, ganyan mag-shoot ng isang araw or ilang oras. Pero 'yong movie kasi, di ba, every day nagsu-shoot kayo? ' Yong time 'yong inaalala ko sa mga anak ko, kasi maliit pa sila. Kailangan gabayan sila kasi mabilis lang sila lumaki. So, kailangan habang bata pa sila, kailangan 'yong pag-aalaga sa kanila nandun."
