A teenager named Precy Vitug, who was on vacation with friends, was smitten
by the charming ways of the young actor who went by the name of Jinggoy
Estrada—and who also happened to be the scion of one of the most important
political families in the country.
Five years later, in 1989, when she was 19, Precy Vitug married
Jinggoy in a star-studded affair that attracted the biggest names in Philippine
showbiz and politics. Precy Ejercito may have turned out to be one of Jinggoy's
secret weapons as a politician. Three years after the wedding, he was elected
mayor of San Juan, Metro Manila, and now he is a senator of the Republic.
