‘Hipon Girl” Herlene Admits Money Problem After Loses Job Due to Lockdown
Herlene Budol popularly known as “Hipon Girl” admits that she has a money problem after she loses her job when the lockdown was implemented due to COVID-19.
Hipon Girl indicated that the pandemic has had a significant impact on his family and their livelihood, as it has on many others. In an interview with Toni Gonzaga on her vlog “Toni Talks,” Herlene said they were “back to zero” on money when they stopped working because of the lockdowns implemented.
When she was still working on “Wowowin,” the TV host-comedienne claims to have saved at least P100,000. However, due to household costs, her savings were depleted.
“Inipon ko lang. Buti na lang nag-ipon ako, kung hindi patay kaming mga pamilya ko dahil sa pandemic,” said Hipon.
Herlene said she pays for their grandparents’ electricity and meds in addition to home expenses. She admitted that she weeps every day because of her financial difficulties.
“Back to zero kami. Walang wala na talaga, kahit hanggang ngayon, wala na talaga akong pinagkukunan ng pera. Kasi sa akin nga umaasa buong pamilya ko, dati pagkain lang, pero ngayon pati kuryente sa ‘kin,” she said.
Hipon thanked Alex Gonzaga for her assistance and the Gucci purse, which she adored. “Naiyak po ako dahil sa ano Gucci talaga. Mas mahal pa po sa bahay namin kasi yung bahay namin mura lang daw nun.”
Herlene also revealed that she used to believe she’d be getting projects following “Wowowin.” She was also embarrassed by individuals who sought her assistance because she had nothing to offer.
Hipon Girl also admits that her vlogging does not bring in a lot of money. However, social media like TikTok are alleged to aid her in the pursuit of her “racket.” When she has a racket, she says she posts it on TikTok.
Herlene added, now she is really experiencing being the breadwinner in the family. “Dati ‘di ako nawawalan ng pera sa wallet. Dati po kasi, walang nag-e-expect sa kin. Ngayon sa ‘kin na po lahat umasa,” she said.
Despite her past experiences, Herlene claims to have gained knowledge. Toni says she’ll give Herlene whatever money she makes from the interview vlog with her.
