For Herlene Budol, history is not like chismis
Binibining Pilipinas 2022 1st Runner-up Herlene Budol contradicted the statement of actress Ella Cruz that “history is like chismis.”
The said statement of the Maid in Malacañang star is probably one of the most talked about topics on social media this year. This garnered various reactions from the online community and was criticized by those who criticized the Marcoses.
Just recently, Herlene, who is known also as Hipon Girl, shared her thoughts on this. In a recent vlog of Kapamilya journalist Karen Davila, she featured the former Wowowin host who had her house tour after her successful beauty pageant stint.
The said house was a gift from her talent manager Wilbert Tolentino who promised to grant that to her after joining a pageant. Then, Karen Davila had a question and answer session with Herlene Budol. One of the questions that the journalist asked the beauty queen was if she believes that history is like gossip.
“No. Para sa akin po, napakasimple lang po, huwag po nating daanin sa kung ano-anong explanation… ang history po is katotohanan, ang Marites, hindi totoo… para sa akin nga, ang mga historian mga teacher na nagtuturo ng mga kasaysayan. Ang Marites, parang CCTV, social media,” Herlene said.
The beauty queen was also asked about social issues. She also shared what her pageant coach taught her when it comes to answering questions. Herlene said that whether her answer is right or wrong, she should make sure that it sounds right whenever she delivers what she wants to say.
Meanwhile, during the Binibining Pilipinas 2022 pageant night, the said statement of Ella Cruz also became a hot topic. It is because of the question that came from actor Joshua Garcia who was one of the judges. “Personally, how do you distinguish a historian from a marites?” the actor asked finalist Stacey Daniella Gabriel who has hailed as the 2nd runner-up.
