LOOK: A trimmer Jessy Mendiola proudly says she’s still ‘Pata Queen’
Jessy Mendiola proudly owned to still being the “Pata Queen” after getting complimented by netizen on her weight loss.
The actress shared a snapshot of her dance costume for Sunday variety show “ASAP” on Instagram on May 7. In it she can be seen wearing a red checkered top tied in a knot in front to close while exposing her midriff. She also wore tight leather shorts and fishnet stockings with white shoes.
Netizen Bernadette R. Punzalan (@binkypunzalan) complimented Mendiola for her beauty. She also noted Mendiola wasn’t really “pata,” or have big thighs, as bashers called her.
Mendiola quickly replied to this comment, saying she really is a pata girl except she just lost a little weight. She added, “Pata Queen forevs.”
Mendiola was previously ridiculed by netizens for having large thighs, which subsequently earned her the nickname Pata Queen. In 2016 she was voted FHM Philippines’ sexiest woman. The photo below, dated May 1, 2017, shows how the actress was a year ago.
Since then Mendiola has put in more hours into working out and includes kickboxing as part of her exercise regimen. She even has a gym to train in whenever she visits Thailand.
The rest, as they say, is history. /ra
