Nora’s holiday wish is for her brother’s healing
What does Nora Aunor want for Christmas? “I pray for healing—for my youngest brother, Buboy (Eddie Villamayor, who acted with her in ‘Minsa’y Isang Gamu-gamo”),” the 62-year-old Superstar told us during a brief but significant chat when we visited her on the set of her teleserye on GMA 7, “Little Nanay.” (More about this in another article.)
Eddie Boy, a former actor who topbilled NV Productions’ 1975 drama, “Niño Valiente,” has been in the hospital since he suffered a debilitating stroke in July. The iconic actress adds, “Sana gumaling na ang bunso namin, kasi mahal na mahal ko ‘yun—at wala namang ibang tutulong sa kanya kundi ako.
