TV host says no final decision yet on joining politics
MANILA - Luis Manzano drew laughs in a joint interview with his girlfriend, Angel Locsin, when he said, in jest, that it's up to the "Darna" actress to propose marriage.
The couple was interviewed on Friday after participating in Batangas' Alay-Lakad charity event, which was organized by Manzano's mother and the province's governor, screen veteran Vilma Santos.
"Baka masyado mo naman dibdibin 'yan, ah!" Locsin told Manzano, when he quipped that he has been waiting for the actress' wedding proposal.
Alluding to a controversial wedding mixup in Balesin Island Club, Manzano joked that they had been planning to hold their wedding there.
The two, however, did not give a serious answer on their plans to wed. Locsin went along with Manzano's jokes that she had agreed to shoulder the expenses of the special day, in exchange for the "gift" of his good looks.
Reacting to her son's statement, Santos said, in jest: "Mga kaibigan, masanay na po kayo sa anak ko. Ganyan lang po 'yan, pero maniwala kayo sa akin, napakabait niyan!"
"Mayabang lang po 'yan. Mawala na ang yaman, huwag lang ang yabang!"
In the interview, Santos also referred to Locsin as a "good first lady," amid speculation that Manzano is planning to pursue public office in Batangas. The TV host, however, clarified that he has yet to make a decision and will likely come up with one in a month's time.
