Edu Manzano’s son Luis is happy for him and Cherry Pie Picache’s son Nio Tria is happy for her. So the question now is – what does Edu’s ex-wife Vilma Santos think of her ex-husband’s new romance with Cherry Pie?

That’s what their son Luis tried to do in his latest YouTube vlog, as he asked the former actress and current House Deputy Speaker about the topic.


Vilma, who couldn’t help but laugh at her son’s question, stated that she has been receiving a lot of calls from people wanting to know her thoughts about it, adding, “I don’t answer them. I don’t want to be involved.”

But when urged by Luis, she finally admitted that she is happy for the couple.

“What’s important, I guess, is I can share that I am happy. I am happy. You know Eduardo, your dad, and Pie is a very close friend of mine. At this point in time in our lives, the most important thing is to have respect and love. So, I wish them all the best,” she said.

Vilma and Edu were married for just two years before their annulment in 1982, a year after they welcomed Luis. Vilma had since tied the knot with politician Ralph Recto, while Edu married actress Maricel Soriano; a marriage that ended in 1991.

Cherry Pie and Edu confirmed their relationship back last month after they were seen acting chummy with each other during a dinner.
