‘Queen of All Media’ Kris Aquino was among the millions of Filipinos who celebrated the victory of Camarines Sur Representative and incoming Vice President Leni Robredo.
On her Instagram account, the TV host-actress congratulated Robredo and said she gave everything for the second woman to be elected as the country’s vice president.
Her post read: “A friend told me- Kris, wag mo naman itaya ang lahat, paano kung matalo si Leni? I smiled in reply & said marami kaming kakampi sa langit. (Kris, don’t put everything on the line, What if Leni loses?) Happy Birthday Sec Jesse! @lenirobredo said in her speeches, Sec Jesse was my friend, we only met later. I asked her for a pic for IG posting during PNoy’s birthday. I called my cousin @bamaquino& volunteered to shoot an endorsement for Leni. We shot March 15 at their home.
How heartwarming to have gotten to know Aika, Tricia & Jillian. Apart from my MOM, @lenirobredo is my IDOL when it comes to being the BEST MOM.
In her I saw calm intelligence with sincere humility, a sense of humor, & a life’s purpose of true public service.#LifeGoals
May 3 was my last sorties w/ her in QC- thank you VM Joy Belmonte for producing them in 12 hrs. She was #1that day in surveys & I asked- did she feel like a winner? She said the surveys were the sign she prayed for. Thank you to 14,418,817 Filipinos who voted LENI! Yes, for me this fight was personal- IT WAS FOR MY MOM’s MEMORY. Kaya binigay ko ang lahat for VP Leni- ganun ako pinalaki, nakikipaglaban ng buo ang puso! (That’s why I gave everything for VP Leni – that’s how I’ve been raised, to fight wholeheartedly!) Thank You God for answered prayers! CONGRATULATIONS to my VP, my inspiration!”
