In the past few days Mayrín Villanueva has been in the eye of the hurricane. She’s in the midst of a seperation with Jorge Poza, while rumors have been spreading that she’s having a fling with her co-star Eduardo Santamarina (the romance was confirmed by Cecilia Galliano, the wife of Sebastián Rulli). And now the 32-year-old actress is acting the press to respect her privacy.

“Right now I’m in a lot of pain, and I’m going through a difficult time,” said the Yo amo a Juan querendón star on the TV show La oreja (Televisa). “I ask that people respect me and my family. Of course you want to get the scoop and report things, but it’s a difficult process and it needs to be treated with respect.”.

Villanueva also expressed her feelings for her ex, the host of Hoy (Televisa). “He’s the man that I’ve loved the most in all my life, and I’d give my life for him. He’s the father of my children. However, life gives you surprises, and sometimes they’re just out of your control,” she said.
