After ‘tense’ moment, Santos tells Sereno, De Castro: ‘Let’s just be fabulous’
Batangas sixth-district Rep. Vilma Santos was seated beside Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno and Associate Justice Teresita De Castro when the feuding magistrates had an awkward encounter at an event last Thursday.
Recalling the incident in a radio interview, Santos said the entire hall felt the tension between the feuding justices.
“Nung tumayo si Justice De Castro and binigay iyong message niya na it was not the right time and right place, I was just listening, sabi ko, ‘oh my God’!” Santos said.
So when her turn to speak came, she said she tried to lighten the atmosphere: “Puwede ho ba magkwentuhan na lang tayo?”
“Let us just be fabulous,” she recalled telling the audience, which applauded.
Santos said she embraced Sereno at the end of the event and told her, “I will pray for you.”
