In this day and age of social media, it isn’t easy to be a celebrity. More so to be a celebrity and married to a politician vying for the second highest position in the land.
Heart Evangelista acknowledged the fact when she and her husband Senator Chiz Escudero took the hot seat on Winnie Monsod’s Bawal Ang Pasaway on GMA Network, adding that she has gotten used to the negative comments she reads online.
Active on Facebook and Instagram, Heart confessed, “In the beginning, it drove me crazy. Especially ako sanay ako sa social media. I’m very active [online], so nung umpisa nakikita ko lahat. But my husband advised me na wag ko nalang daw pansinin ang mga bashers.”
She quickly added, “Pero siyempre bilang asawa or bilang kaibigan din, parang nasasaktan ako para sa kanya. Hindi ba? So I have learned to let go. Eventually, siguro, you get immune din to what they throw at him or even to me.”
Heart continues to be active in showbiz via projects on GMA Network, but has declared she will be active in campaigning for her husband in 2016. Escudero is currently leading in surveys among the vice presidential candidates.
