Jodi Sta. Maria and Jolo Revilla are fine, Lolit Solis insinuates wound ‘self-inflicted’!


MANILA – Actress Jodi Sta. Maria stayed at Jolo Revilla’s bedside until the Cavite vice-governor was conscious after sustaining a gunshot wound to the chest, according to showbiz columnist and TV host Lolit Solis.

Solis, the talent manager of Jolo’s parents Sen. Bong Revilla and Lani Mercado, thanked Sta. Maria during a radio DZMM interview on Monday “dahil hindi siya umalis sa ospital hangga’t hindi niya nakikitang gising si Jolo.”

“Noong gising na si Jolo, tsaka lang siya umalis, noong conscious na,” Solis added.

Jolo has been confined at the intensive care unit of the Asian Hospital and Medical Center in Muntinlupa. He was rushed to the hospital Saturday after he supposedly shot himself by accident while cleaning his government-issued gun, a .40 Glock pistol, at the house of his father in Ayala Alabang.

Sta. Maria first confirmed her relationship with Jolo in late 2012.

Atty. Raymond Fortun, spokesperson of the Revilla family, said on Sunday that he was able to speak with Jolo before he underwent a two-hour operation to clean his wounds.

“He was a little bit sorry. Tinanong ko kasi siya, ‘Jolo, kumusta ka na?’ Sabi niya, ‘Heto, attorney, nagkamali ako,'” shared Fortun. “I would think he was referring to the fact that he was cleaning his gun at that time and somehow nakalabit niya ‘yung trigger.”

What Jolo said on night before accident

Solis was the first to issue a statement on Jolo’s accident on Saturday, saying the gunshot wound appeared to be “self-inflicted.” She surmised that the accident had something to do with Jolo’s “depression” over the recent events involving his father, including the legal moves to transfer the detained lawmaker to a regular prison cell.

The outspoken talent manager recalled that the night before Jolo’s accident, they were talking about criticisms against him in connection with the onscreen tandem of Sta. Maria and actor Richard Yap, her leading man in the defunct daytime series “Be Careful With My Heart.”

But what concerned Jolo more, Solis said, was the condition of his father.

Solis narrated: “Ang pinag-uusapan namin niyan si Jodi, eh. Pinapangaralan ko siya, kasi nga bina-bash yata siya sa Facebook na parang siya ang triangle doon sa Richard Yap and Jodi Sta. Maria love team. Nagagalit kay Jolo ‘yung fans.”

“Pero mas concerned siya sa papa niya, kasi dumalaw nga ako sa papa niya. Tinatanong kung okay nga ‘yung papa niya,” she said, noting that she had just recently visited Sen. Revilla.

The senator is currently detained at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center for graft and plunder in connection with the pork barrel scam.

Sen. Revilla is also beset by other problems such as the garnishment of his assets and the accusation that he sneaked out of his detention cell to drop by the 91st birthday celebration of fellow detained Senator Juan Ponce Enrile at the Phililippine National Police General Hospital last February 14.

Referring to Jolo, Solis continued: “Na-remember ko talaga, may sinabi siya sa akin no’n, na ang lungkut-lungkot na raw doon sa bahay nila sa Alabang. Hindi raw gaya noong dati, na ang gulu-gulo, nandoon silang lahat. Nalulungkot na siya sa bahay sa Alabang.

“Simula nang nakulong si Bong, halimbawa ‘yung mga January 1 na get-together, every Sunday na may gathering, ang lagi mong nakikita na umiiyak, si Jolo. Sobrang [mahal niya ang ama niya]. Ang feeling niya kasi, little Bong Revilla siya, eh. Talagang idol na idol niya ‘yung tatay niya, eh.

Solis said she would not be surprised if Jolo’s mishandling of the gun had something to do with his emotional state at the time.

“Kaya hindi ako nagtaka kung nangyari… Ang sinasabi ko, self-inflicted ‘yung wound niya dahil galing sa ano niya… Sinasabi ko rin na alam ko, depressed si Jolo. May depression siyang [pinagdadaanan]. Baka nga nagkamali nga ng paglilinis ng baril, nagkamali sa pagkaka-ano, dahil nga doon sa depression na nadarama niya,” she said.

Bong inconsolable, says Lolit

Solis said Sen. Revilla has been inconsolable after learing of Jolo’s accident. The older Revilla has already filed a petition before the Sandiganbayan asking that he be allowed to visit his son at the hospital.

“Iyak siya nang iyak,” Solis said. “Sinisisi niya ang sarili niya. Kumbaga sa nangyari kay Jolo, parang siya ang may kasalanan. Hindi naman puwedeng gano’n.”

Solis also expressed her support for Mercado, who she said now stands as the family’s backbone amid the trials they are facing. “Sa kanilang lahat, saludo ako kay Lani Mercado, eh,” she said. “Habang nasa kulungan ang asawa mo, heto ang anak mo. And to think, she’s coping. Siya ang nakabantay doon. Nakakaawa nga.”

“Tapos ang kabilin-bilinan ko naman kay Lani, kung puwede, lagi sanang nandoon ‘yung anak ni Jolo,” Solis added, referring to the vice-governor’s son with former partner Grace Adriano.

“Dapat makita niyang tatay na rin siya, na merong batang sumasandal sa kanya, na dependent din sa kanya. Kailangan ma-instill sa mind niya na responsibilidad niya iyon. Kaya pag makita niya ‘yung anak niya, baka matauhan siya, na hindi lang ang tatay niya ang mundo niya, at merong batang ang mundo ay siya.”


‘Be Careful With My Heart’ is finally ending on Nov. 28!

Be Careful With My Heart” is coming to an end.

After more than two years on air, the “kilig-serye” will conclude on November 28, its lead stars Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap announced in a live interview on “TV Patrol” Thursday.

Since it debuted in July 2012, “Be Careful With My Heart” has remained the No. 1 daytime program in the Philippines, according to Kantar Media.


The popularity of the series has also spawned a line of merchandise, a gold-selling official soundtrack album, and a wedding magazine special, among others.

The New York Festivals-nominated series was, at one point, also set to be translated into a movie. However, due to the “tight schedule” in filming the TV series, the big-screen version was eventually pulled out from the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival.

Originally slated for a one-season run, “Be Careful With My Heart” initially centered on Maya dela Rosa (Sta. Maria) as a barrio lass with big dreams, and her love story with Richard Lim (Yap), a widowed businessman with three children.

Due to the series’ popularity, it has been extended numerous times, with several “milestones” in the relationship of the nanny-turned-flight attendant and her former employer marking highlights throughout the program’s run.

These developments in their love story also became worldwide trending topics on Twitter, from their first date, first exchange of “I love you’s,” first kiss, to Richard’s wedding proposal to Maya.

Over the two-year run of “Be Careful With My Heart,” Maya and Richard have gotten married, welcomed twins, and adjusted to a family life riddled with challenges.

Last July, the show celebrated its second anniversary on air with a grand concert at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City — a culmination of sorts of the cast’s world tour in the past months.

“Be Careful With My Heart” also stars Mutya Orquia, Janella Salvador, Jerome Ponce, Aiza Seguerra, and Sylvia Sanchez. It is under the direction of Jeffrey Jeturian and Mervyn Brondial.

Siya lang makakasagot niyan tungkol sa proposal na yan. Basta we’re taking things slow so no need to rush naman.”

If ever Jolo pops the question?

“Like I said before, I have never lost faith in love. But marriage is a different thing, it’s a different story. So right now hindi pa ako ready.”
