Recently, during a sortie in San Manuel, Pangasinan with Senator Grace Poe, Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero had an awkward moment.
It was after the vice presidential candidate acknowledged the presence of San Manuel Mayor Alain Jerico S. Perez. Naturally, the senator couldn’t ignore the fact that the town mayor’s name was the namesake of Heart Evangelista’s former boyfriend, Jericho Rosales.
“Maraming salamat, Mayor Jerico! Parang yung pangalan ni Jericho….,” Chiz said amid cheers from the crowd at the mini-rally.
“Bakit kayo tumatawa? Buti na lang ang vice mayor ang pangalan ‘Badong,’ hindi Daniel,” Chiz added smiling.
Before he became Heart’s boyfriend, she was with Daniel Matsunaga who is now Erich Gonzales’ boyfriend.
Chiz was incredulous when he became Heart’s husband.
“Sa gandang lalaki ng mga ex-boyfriend nya ba’t naman papatol sa akin hindi ba?,” Chiz said in an interview.
Heart said that Chiz became her “super crush” the first time they met in 2007 in La Union when both of them were judges at a beauty contest. That time, she and Jericho Rosales were very much together.
