Let’s think fabulous! Find out how Vilma Santos eased tension at forum with feuding Sereno, De Castro
Batangas Rep. Vilma Santos used her cheerful attitude and sense of humor to lighten the atmosphere at a forum where the presence of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno and Supreme Court Associate Justice Teresita Leonardo-De Castro made everyone tense.
In her speech at a forum of the Philippine Women Judges Association (PWJA), Santos expressed relief that the audience laughed upon seeing her.
“Kanina pa po [na] ang bigat bigat ng loob ko,” she said. “Puwede ho bang magkuwentuhan na lang tayo?”
Santos said she was invited to talk about her experiences as an actress and female politiko.
“Just to make the environment and the ambiance more lighter and fun. Let’s all think fabulous! We’re all fabulous!” she quipped.
Before Santos took the stage, the atmosphere in the room turned frosty when De Castro publicly chided Sereno for bringing up the quo warranto case filed against her in her speech.
“I’m sorry that the CJ (Chief Justice) has taken this opportunity to discuss a matter that is sub judice. We have given her all the courtesy and I sincerely hope that she should not have dealt with the matter which is pending with the court,” De Castro said.
