MANILA, Philippines — Veteran columnist Lolit Solis claimed that Yen Santos is a mother figure to Paolo Contis that’s why the actor called his co-star to join him in Baguio.
During the latest episode of her radio show “Take It…Per Minute, Me Ganun,” Lolit said Yen and Paolo are best friends.
“Best friends sila ni Yen, mother figure si Yen, at si Yen ang masarap kausap buong maghapon, hanggang gabi,” Lolit said.
“Puwede naman sila mag-usap sa Mandaluyong, bakit kailangan pa pumuntang Baguio?” she added.
Lolit’s co-hosts Cristy Fermin and Mr. Fu noticed that she was sarcastically using the term “friends,” so she clarified why.
“Sa experience ko, ‘di ba usually ang lalaki ‘pag may problema, sa kapwa niya lalaki tumatawag? Hindi siya agad nago-open sa mga babae, except kung parang mother figure ka niya. Pero pagka lalaki, usually lalaki din ang [kakausapin] kasi parang sila ‘yung same language. Kaya… parang, babae na bata pa ang pagsasabihan mo?” she said.
As Paolo’s manager, Lolit has been defending the actor throughout the controversy. Paolo asked the public to spare his manager from bashing in his recent statement.
