GUBAT, Sorsogon (BicolToday.com/27-Mar-2013) – Congressman Deogracias ‘Ding’ Ramos (2nd District, Sorsogon) over the week expressed support for beleaguered Senator Chiz Escudero after the latter was berated over the media by the parents of his girlfriend, showbiz celebrity Heart Evangelista.
Congressman Ramos said he and supporters will not leave behind Chiz from being the subject of malicious talks heaped upon the Senator by Heart’s parents, Rey at Cecille Ongpauco.
He suspected that there might be people who were goading Heart’s parents to harm the Senator’s reputation.
In the past few days, Rey and Cecille Ongpauco publicly bared their dislike for Chiz after the rumored plan by the Senator and girlfriend Heart to get married.
“I know Chiz since he was young. His father, the late Congressman Sonny Escudero, was a close friend of mine, and I knew that Chiz was brought up in the proper way and God-fearing,” said Ramos.
He suspected that the controversy raised by the Ongpaucos against the Senator has political agenda which the Ongpaucos are not aware of. The controversy has sparked a family feud with daughter Heart siding with Chiz.
Earlier, Senator Escudero had said that he was separating his public life from his personal life and that, he did not want to interfere nor be the cause in the growing gap between Heart and her parents.
The Senator prayed that Heart and her parents will settle their differences, and that he and the actress will become more stable and strong in the midst of the trials and controversy. [BicolToday.com]
