Anjo Yllana and his younger brother Jomari have apparently patched things up in time for the new year, a reconciliation that made their mother emotional.

Anjo confirmed his reconciliation with Jomari at the sidelines of the mediacon for “Itutumba Ka Ng Tatay Ko,” per report of Inquirer Bandera. The elder Yllana said he and Jomari are “okay” after he approached his younger brother in what seemed to be a heartfelt reunion.


“Okay na kami. Nagkausap kami noong New Year. Mangiyak-ngiyak nga ‘yung mommy ko. Sabi niya natutuwa siya na yung panganay at bunso niya nag-uusap na,” he said. “Ako naman, okay na rin ‘yun para wala nang samaan ng loob. Kumbaga, past is past, lahat ng mga nangyari sa amin para sa akin tapos na ‘yun. Forward na lang.”


(We’re okay. We talked during the New Year. My mom even teared up. She’s happy because her eldest and youngest child are finally interacting. For me, it’s okay because there are no hard feelings. Past is past, everything that happened between us is done. Move forward.)

Anjo admitted that he “casually” approached Jomari during the reunion as if nothing happened between them. He then noted that he didn’t want to dwell in the past and hoped the latter would feel the same.

“Ako ang naunang bumati… nilapitan ko na, binati ko siya, casual na bati, ‘yung ganu’n na parang walang nangyari,” he said. “Naisip ko rin yung Mommy ko na nandu’n. Sincere yung paglapit ko sa kanya, kaya sana siya rin.”

The former “Eat Bulaga” host also shared that Jomari’s wife, former actress Abby Viduya also joined in their interaction, where he congratulated the couple on their Las Vegas wedding in November 2023.

“Bumati rin naman siya sa akin, pati si Abby. Nagbatian kaming lahat. Nagkwentuhan din kami but nothing serious kasi ayoko rin ng ganu’n. Sa akin, okay na ‘yun. Kahit two years kaming hindi nag-usap, hindi mo pa rin maiaalis na magkapatid kami. Deep inside naman, kinalimutan ko na y’un, mga three or four months after nangyari [ang tampuhan],” he said.

(Jomari greeted me in return, even Abby. We greeted each other. We talked, but nothing serious since I don’t want to delve into those. That’s okay for me. Even though we haven’t been in contact for two years, you can’t remove the fact that we’re brothers. Deep inside, I forgot about it three or four months after our misunderstanding happened.)


Their reconciliation took place months after Anjo revealed that he wasn’t on speaking terms with Jomari during an interview with the latter’s ex-wife Aiko Melendez.

The brothers’ scuffle made headlines in January 2022 after Anjo accused Jomari and Viduya of allegedly pocketing his campaign funds after he ran for a congressional post in Camarines Sur’s fourth district, per a report from Philippine Entertainment Portal.
