She is now the official representative of party-list Komunidad ng Pamilya, Pasyente at Persons with Disability (P3PWD) in the 19th Congress,
The 64-year-old native of Cadiz City, Negros Occidental is known by many for her feisty and outspoken roles in public service. She’s currently the ‘Queen of Bardagulan.’
Esquire Philippines defines “bardagulan” as a loose translation of sh*tposting or a situation where social media users pretty much shoot the breeze and vent their thoughts, frequently in a sarcastic or mocking tone, about a specific topic.
Rowena Guanzon recently made rounds on social media after she asked actress Ruffa Gutierrez regarding her two helpers who were allegedly thrown out of a first-class subdivision. Guanzon said that her friend rescued the employees of the actress from her house.
Just recently, a netizen, who was allegedly a teacher, called Rowena Guanzon “Buangzon.” He made a derogatory statement on one of the congresswoman’s posts on Facebook where the latter was harvesting fish at her farm.
“Itulak niyo yang BUANGZON na yan,” the netizen said.
Thereafter, the teacher issued an apology to Guanzon, which the congresswoman also accepted. In his apology, the teacher said sorry for the things that he said to her. He also said that she was his idol and that he admires her bravery.

Sana po patawarin mo ako sa nasabi ko Mam… hope mapatawad mo po ako Mam Rowena Guanzon. god bless poh Mam!!!”
