It seems my recent write-up on the blooming Vic Sotto-Pauleen Luna romance, as revealed by Ricky Lo in his Philippine Star column, elicited a lot of comments from our readers who are either for or against the relationship.
Of late, Pauleen’s mom, Chat Luna,has come out with a statement answering the issues portraying her twenty-something daughter as a “gold-digger” for being linked to Vic Sotto.
But we couldn’t help but read between the lines since by her statement, Mrs. Luna confirms that Vic indeed courted Pauleen. To wit:
“We would like to extend our regrets to Mr. Vic Sotto for being dragged in this issue.
We respect his show of interest with Pauleen and trust that whatever she decides regarding this matter will be for the best of everyone.”
Of her daughter, Mrs. Luna said: “She is a very simple lady with simple wants and needs. She has been smart in ensuring that her future is secured through her investments.
“Investments such as the new house she is building from her savings—contrary to the speculations that it was a gift.”
Although Pauleen suddenly went quiet with her Twitter, her past tweets showed her to be a woman in love as shown in this post.
The same couldn’t be said of Oyo Boy Sotto, Vic’s son by Dina Bonnevie, who is said to be against the Vic-Pauleen romance. Maybe because Pauleen is younger than the Sotto children and maybe because she had a gap before with Oyo Boy’s wife Kristine Hermosa. This is Oyo’s controversial post on Twitter and we can just read between the lines: 🙂
