The news about Shalani Soledad joining Willing Willie as a co-host hogged my Facebook wall yesterday, and my friends seem to be divided on the issue. “Go girl!!” cried the fans. “Kadiri naman!,” chorused the others.
Methinks it’s a calculated move by the popular councilor from Valenzuela City, and whether it’s meant to spite the President is something we can only guess. After being “discovered” by P-Noy, Shalani appears to be testing the waters on whether she can stand on her own two feet…. with somebody on the opposite side of the political spectrum at that. And this is exactly the reason why am lifting my self-imposed ban on nonsensical TV shows to watch the Willie Revillame show on TV5 tonight. I wanna know the answers to the following questions:
1. How will Shalani stand up to a veteran like Willie Revillame? surely, we’ll be able to tell if she’s eloquent or if there’s something between her ears
2. Is there a future for her in showbiz? if so, will she be able to give her ex future sis-in-law Kris Aquino a run for her money?
Shown in photo is the previously unpublished pic of Shalani beside her real father, Adi Aguirre, during the latter’s birthday held at a Pasay City restaurant. (via Facebook)
Even though the next elections are still far away, there’s speculation that Shalani is preparing the groundwork for a run for Senator.
Or at least that’s what her supporters want her to be, after they failed in getting her to be a First Lady 😀
