Lavinia has met her match!
Cherie Gil experienced being thrown water at her face by her mother Rosemarie Gil.
A Facebook video showed Cherie taunting her mother by saying that her GMA-7 show Onanay had higher ratings than Rosemarie's ABS-CBN teleserye, Ngayon at Kailanman.
Cherie asks her mother, “So, kamusta naman, mommy, at mas mataas ang ratings ng show namin kaysa sa inyo?”
Rosemarie delivers the iconic line: "You're nothing but a second-rate trying hard copycat!"
Cherie wipes the water from her face and mutters, "Fine, but it's still my line. Copycat!"
This is a role reversal for Cherie since she is always the one throwing water at celebrities and uttering the memorable line.
In her caption for the video, Cherie wrote:
"Now THIS IS CLASSIC ! And THIS upon my request ! #ilaviniaarguellesmoako #onanay #ngayonatkailanman
"Disclaimer : only my mother can do this to me ha !?!?
"Thank you mom Rose Marie Gil Eigenmann for being such a great sport ! #theoriginal"
In the 1985 movie Bituin Walang Ningning, Sharon Cuneta played Dorina, the newbie singer who asked her idol for her opinion regarding her performance.
Cherie, who played her idol Lavinia, replied by saying, "You're nothing but a second-rate trying hard copycat!"
