Noy wishes Shalani Soledad well in her TV career
President Aquino wished his former girlfriend Shalani Soledad well yesterday in her venture into show business.
The Valenzuela City councilor is the co-host of comedian Willie Revillame on the TV5 game show “Willing Willie.”
“I understand she looks at it as a perspective to broaden her ability to serve her constituents. So I hope the upside will be fully attained, she finds fulfillment and happiness in it. As far as the downside of being in show biz is concerned, hopefully (it) will be very mitigated or non-existent,” Mr. Aquino said.
Soledad had her debut as Revillame’s co-host last night. She thanked the TV station’s management and the public for the new opportunity given her.
Sources said Soledad informed the President that she was joining Revillame, who supported Mr. Aquino’s rival in the last elections, Nacionalista Party standard-bearer Sen. Manuel Villar Jr.
The President and Soledad broke up in September. While both of them have yet to give direct confirmation, the President had said that it was quite clear to both parties as to where they stood now and that “we now have separate lives.”
But the President could not say whether he could watch Soledad’s show since he has a lot of materials to study for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit in Japan this week.
Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte, on the other hand, said it would be former Sen. Manuel Roxas II who would surely be watching his wife, broadcaster Korina Sanchez, when asked if Mr. Aquino would watch “TV Patrol,” where Sanchez returns as an anchor. Sanchez is also a former girlfriend of the President.
