Taking a break from her busy schedule, comedienne and TV host Pokwang visited San Fernando, Pampanga yesterday, May 5, to accompany Kris Aquino and other celebrities in campaigning for Liberal Party standard bearers Noynoy Aquino and Mar Roxas.
PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) caught up with Pokwang onstage to talk to her about her campaign experience. Although she is one of the co-hosts of Willie Revillame, an endorser of Manny Villar, in Wowowee, Pokwang said she knows her "true colors."
"Para sa akin, obvious na, 'no, kung sino talaga ang kulay ko. I love sunrise!" she declared cheerfully.
Pokwang said she never hesitated to attend her first Noynoy rally out of gratitude for the Aquinos. "Because sobrang mahal na mahal ako ng Aquino family, especially Ms. Kris. Yung pakikisama niya sa akin nung nagsisimula pa lang ako sa ABS, talagang nakita ko na ang suporta niya sa akin. At ibinabalik ko lang po ang ibinigay niya sa akin."
Besides, Pokwang said Willie does not mind if his colleagues are not "orange."
"Yun lang po ang maganda sa amin sa Wowowee, nagrerespetuhan po kami, nirerespeto po kami ni Kuya Will, at ganun din po ang kanyang paniniwala, bilang respetuhan po sa kanya-kanyang kagustuhan," she said.
Shifting gears, we asked Pokwang why Willie was absent in that day's episode of the ABS-CBN noontime show. The outspoken TV host is currently involved in a controversy wherein he actually threatened to resign from Wowowee.
But Pokwang cut our interview abruptly. "Well, may mga inaayos lang po siyang mga ano... Well, anyway, yun na 'yon. Thank you," she said.
