- Cong. Vilma Santos' photo seated between CJ Maria Lourdes Sereno and SC AJ Teresita Leonardo-De Castro went viral
- Ate Vi delivered her speech after the two women justices have delivered theirs
- She was the one who broke the growing tension in the hall
Cong. Vilma Santos was invited at the recent forum prepared by the Philippine Women Judges Association on March 8, and was seated right between Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno and Supreme Court Associate Justice Teresita Leonardo-De Castro.
KAMI saw on PEP that there indeed was tension in the venue where the event was held.
According to the report, Cong. Vi simply muttered "Oh my god" when after CJ Sereno delivered her speech, AJ De Castro stood up to rebuke CJ.
It was supposedly Cong. Vi's turn to speak after the CJ has delivered her speech.
During an interview on DZBB, Cong. Vi mentioned:
“Unang-una, pagdating ko, tense na ako kasi, imagine, puro ‘your honors’ iyong kaharap ko.
"After the message ni Chief Justice [Sereno], okay lang naman sa 'kin dahil ako na ang susunod [na magsasalita].
“Naramdaman ko ang bigat ng loob [tensyon] after nung mensahe ni Chief Justice.
“Noong tumayo si Justice De Castro and then ibinigay niya iyong message niya, that it was not the right time and the right place, I was just listening.
"Sabi ko nga, ‘Oh My God!’"
So when it was Ate Vi's turn to speak, she was actually feeling the tension in the room.
At the podium, she said, "“Kanina pa po [na] ang bigat-bigat ng loob ko. Puwede ho bang magkuwentuhan na lang tayo?”
This then sent the audience laughing.
According to Ate Vi, it was not her intention to "ease" the tension, she just merely stated what she felt at that moment.
Because of this, Cong. Santos earned the title "Star for all Tensions," seemingly superseding her previous title as the "Star for All Seasons."
Here's the post of Jim Paredes about what transpired in the PWJA event.
Ate Vi surely made everyone's day at the much-talked about forum.
Cong. Vilma Santos-Recto is the representative of Lipa, Batangas.
She is the wife of Sen. Ralph Recto, and they also have one child.
Ate Vi is also the mom of actor Luis Manzano.
