When news about Maine Mendoza and Arjo Atayde’s relationship broke the internet, the latter’s mom, Sylvia Sanchez came in rescue to face the harsh comments and even death threats thrown towards him.
Despite all the bashing, Sylvia never tried to intrude into her son’s personal affairs or ask him to stop dating the well-loved actress. Instead, Sylvia simply asked Arjo his reason for pursuing Maine; to which Arjo answered, “Swak kami.”
Sylvia can attest that Arjo really loves Maine; the woman who never fails to make him smile and laugh. Besides, Arjo is not the type of guy who would simply give up the girl he truly loves. “Ilalaban ni Arjo si Maine. Well, in fact, inilaban na niya”, Sylvia boldly says about Arjo’s determination to keep his ‘main’ girl in his life. Sylvia praises Arjo for taking the courage to woo Maine in a traditional Pinoy ligaw style of courting the woman at home; where he got to face Maine’s family in their abode in Bulacan.
Maine receives Sylvia’s admiration as well when the phenomenal star did not get scared of admitting her relationship with Arjo despite the risk and not to mention, fury from her loyal fanatics. Sylvia is in awe that Maine, one of showbiz’ brightest stars, kept it real by loudly declaring that she and Arjo are indeed dating.
So, it is hardly surprising that Sylvia has given Maine her vote. But when asked to confirm, in a straightforward yes or no response, whether Maine is already Arjo’s girlfriend; Sylvia was caught off-guard and appeared hesitant to speak up. Through her smiles and gestures, Sylvia manages to relay to Tito Boy her resistance to answer the question. Yet, her facial expression spoke too much without her uttering any words of confirmation.
