VILMA SANTOS is one of our best actresses, a successful politician who served three terms each as mayor, governor and legislator. And now, she has joined social media and vlogging, with her own youtube channel. 

We got to watch some of her entries and it’s really very entertaining. In a very short time, she quickly gained about 150,000 followers, easily overtaking other stars who’ve been online than her for a longer period of time.

One thing her vlog shows is that she has a very happy  family life. 

Her interactions with husband Sen. Ralph Recto, her sons Luis and Ryan, and daughter in law Jessy Mendiola are filled with so much goodwill and happiness.  They're always laughing!

They’re truly one big happy family and the vlogs just exude so much positivity.

Most of the videos are hilarious because of Luis, who’s unstoppable in his funny antics. Ate Vi doesn’t hide that she is now eager to be a grandma. 

She doesn’t want to pressure the couple but she says she’s looking forward to the day when she’ll be carrying her first grandchild in her arms. 

She says she will spoil her first apo and she’ll be a “makulit na lola”. 

She says Luis is worried even now because when she gets their baby, she might claim it for good and not return his child anymore. But she prefers to be called Momskie, not lola. It’s obvious that she also has a good relationship with her daughter in law.

“Kasi with Jessy, I now have a daughter. Masaya, kasi dati wala akong anak na babae and I like her. I love her. She’s so amiable. 

"I can see she and my son really love, respect and support each other, which is very important in any relationship. Sana magtuloy-tuloy. I really pray that they will always have a happy and successful family life. I will just be here to always guide and support them.”

Ate Vi’s vlog is not only entertaining but also helpful as she gives useful tips about how to keep your body healthy and fit, like taking a short walk after a heavy meal and always exercising in the morning. 

She also shares tips how to counter panic attacks so common in this anxiety-ridden season of the pandemic. 

Even the anecdotes she shares about her past are very amusing, like the fights between “Vilmanians” and “Noranians”. 

Her vlogging just started when she guested in her son Lucky’s own vlog, which definitely boosted the viewership of Lucky’s youtube channel. The positive response was overwhelming and so she decided to have her own vlog.

Another thing so evident in her vlog is that Ate Vi is so richie-rich. Unlike other big stars who live a very modest life, we think she has more than ten helpers or alalays in her huge and well appointed household. 

She is really the perfect role model for other movie stars who gained fame but didn’t know how to manage their life and finances. 

Ate Vi is just so successful in her showbiz career, her political career, her family life, her private life, in everything. Period!!!! Bravo, Ate Vi!!!! 

Now, that she has retired from politics, we can expect more entertaining vlogs from her!!!! Here's praying your apo will come soon!!!!
