Vic Sotto jokingly linked a young mayor from Tarlac with his son Vico Sotto during the TV variety show “Eat Bulaga” on Saturday, June 27.
San Manuel, Tarlac Mayor Donya Tesoro was in the noontime show for the “Bawal Judgmental” segment when she was asked by Paolo Ballesteros and Jose Manalo about her love life.
The 28-year-old said she had no boyfriend, which prompted Ballesteros to ask about her type. She said she was not particular about looks, as long as he was not a womanizer and understood the demands of her work.
Manalo then suggested that perhaps she should marry a mayor too, though Tesoro said her love life was not a priority. Manolo then made an attempt to hint at Vico when he asked about her favorite food.
“Sa meryenda po, anong mga gusto n’yong pagkain?…Kalamay gusto mo?” he said, hinting at rice cake which in Tagalog is biko.
Bossing Vic interjected, telling the two, “Deretsuhin n’yo na kaya.” (Say it straight already.)
He then asked Tesoro if she had suitors, to which she replied, “Hi Bossing! Parang wala. Parang ayaw naman nila sa akin.” (Hi Bossing! It looks like there’s none. It seems they don’t like me.)
At this response, Vic picked up his phone and pretended to call his son.
“Hello Vico! Hello?” he joked. “Diniretso ko na.” (I went straight ahead.)
Tesoro said, “Maraming nagte-text, nangungutang, humihingi ng tulong, pero walang nanliligaw.” (Many text me for loans, asking for help, but no one is courting me.)
Manalo added in jest, “Darating ang biko may latik. Masarap biko may latik.” (The biko with coconut syrup will come, it’s delicious.)
Tesoro was voted into office as mayor in the 2019 mid-term elections. She was vice mayor prior to the post. Her father is Benjamin Tesoro who currently serves as vice mayor. JB
