Is Gov. Vilma Santos Looking For The Right Church For The Wedding Of Son Luis Manzano And Jennylyn Mercado

GOV. VILMA SANTOS confirms she has an offer from Cannes Filmfest best director Dante Mendoza to do an indie film. It’d reunite her with Nora Aunor. The last movie she did with Ate Guy was “T-Bird at Ako” directed by Danny Zialcita in 1982. Ate Guy has already completed a film with Dante, “Sa Iyong Sinapupunan” (“Thy Womb”), which has been entered in the coming December Metro filmfest.

We foresee a problem here, though. Dante does not have any script when he shoots a film. With Ate Guy, this is just fine. But with Gov. Vi, her primary requirement is that she gets to read the script first and she’ll only do a project if she likes the script. As it is, we know another writer-director has submitted a script to Gov. Vi but she didn’t like it. So if Dante is serious in getting her, then he’d be better write down his script first and send it to the Batangas governor for whom time is gold as she’s now busy with her HEARTS projects (standing for health, education-environment, agriculture, roads-infrastructure, technology, science).

When Gov. Vi was called on stage at the Generics Pharmacy launch, everyone was so quiet you can hear a pin drop. “Good afternoon po,” greeted Ate Vi. No one responded so she said: “Hello, good afternoon po. Bakit ang tahimik nyo?”

We told her everyone got tongue tied when she appeared on stage, seemingly mesmerized by her charismatic presence. She laughed and greeted everyone else again. This time, everyone responded with gusto. Later on, she joined our table and we asked her if, like Edu Manzano, she’s also against their son Luis’ joining politics. “It’s not for me to decide,” she says. “Na kay Luis yun. He’s of age. Whatever his decision might be, I’ll respect it.”

Is it true she’s now looking for a church in Batangas where Luis can have his wedding with Jennylyn Mercado? “Ay, hindi po ako yun. Hinding-hindi ako makikikalam sa ganyang bagay at personal na buhay yan ng anak ko.”

Many celebs and politicians are resorting to stem cell therapy as they age, the latest being Manay Lolit Solis. Will she all do it? “Ay, takot ako sa ganyan. Titingnan ko muna ang epekto sa iba, how safe it is. Kasi maski yung botox nga, ayoko, dahil sa katagalan, may side effects yan. Ako, I just exercise everyday, kahit na 20 minutes of zumba, basta pawisan ako ng husto, then I do sauna. Masarap tulog ko and when I wake up, you don’t feel bloated.”

Stem cell is said to enhance one’s sex life. “Ay, kung yun lang, hindi ko pa kailangan nun,” she laughs.
