Actresses Heart Evangelista and Mariel Padilla were seen joining forces as they recently held the first meeting of the Senate Spouses Foundation of the Philippines alongside the other wives of the current senators, following the installation of Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero as new Senate president.

Evangelista is the new head of the foundation, a position that is traditionally bestowed on the spouse of the incumbent Senate president.

Evangelista succeeded the post vacated by Audrey Tan-Zubiri, the wife of former Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri.

Meanwhile, Escudero shared during the Kapihan sa Senado forum that his wife “panicked” and teared up as she didn’t know that she would also be handling her new responsibility.

“Nagtatanong siya, hindi daw niya alam, hindi daw niya kabisado. Sabi ko, ako rin naman, hindi ko alam, hindi ko kabisado. Sabi nya, ‘E ikaw ang tagal-tagal mo na dyan, mundo mo yan.’ Sabi ko, ‘Senador, oo, pero Senate president hindi, kaya panay ang pa-briefing ko,’” he said.

The politician said he advised his wife to not overthink about the job but just to let go of pressures and do what she can.
