Celebrity singers and real-life couple Jessa Zaragoza and Dingdong Avanzado were not spared from problems during the 16 years of their married life.
In an interview last night, November 21, on “Tonight with Boy Abunda,” Dingdong shared that Jessa is quite a "selosa" wife.
It was a long time ago, but Dingdong recalled that Jessa got jealous of a girl whom she thought he was flirting with.
When Boy asked if there was ever a time that they almost split up, Dingdong answered, “Quite a number of times. Siguro sa period na ‘yung parang mga papunta sa seven-year itch.”
According to the 49-year-old Dingdong, the reason why they almost thought breaking off their marriage was because of Jessa’s tendency to become overly jealous.
Jessa, in her defense, explained why jealousy happens. She said:
“‘Pag nagseselos naman ang isang babae, hindi lang naman ibig sabihin nun na nai-insecure siya. Ibig sabihin [minsan] meron lang siyang hinahanap na assurance dun sa taong ‘yun na i-acknowledge ka kung ano na 'yung posisyon mo sa buhay niya.”
At that point in their lives, they weren’t on the same page with their thoughts, but the one thing that got them to sort out their marriage once again? God, Dingdong said.
He added, "I remember our pastor really became involved.”
Jessa and Dingdong will hold a legacy concert this December 8 to celebrate their years and accomplishments in the industry.
