‘Momskie’ makes Jessy feel welcome
Actress Jessy Mendiola reacts to “hearing only good words” from Lipa City Rep. Vilma Santos, the mom of her boyfriend, TV host Luis Manzano.
“His family wants me to call her ‘momskie,’ but I’m still too shy, so I call her ‘Tita Vi.’ I’m grateful that ‘the’ Vilma Santos likes me. I was surprised to discover that what she’s like during interviews—bubbly and chatty—is how she really is in real life. She will never make you feel you aren’t welcome. She’s always warm, and makes me feel like I’m part of the family when I visit.” —MARINEL R. CRUZ
