Sa pangalawang pagkakataon ay nakausap ng PEP(Philippine Entertainment Portal) ang father-in-law ng bagong kasal na siInah Revilla, si Mr. Jorge del Rosario, kahapon, June 5.
Marami pa rin kasing isyu ang naglabasan pagkatapos basagin ni Mr.del Rosario ang kanyang pananahimik tungkol sa mga kontrobersiya sa kanila ng dating matalikna kaibigan at ngayon ay balae na si Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. Hanggangsa kasal nina Vince at Inah ay may mga intriga pa ring dumagdag sa pagitan ngmga Del Rosario at Revilla.
Nabalita kasi right after the wedding na naging "killjoy" rawsi Mr. del Rosario sa kasal ng anak niyang si Vince kay Inah, na ginastusanniya ng P2.5 million.
Ayon sa kanya, "Well, basically, bago mag-wedding, angtalagang sinabi ko naman sa kanila, pupunta ako alang-alang sa anak ko.Titigil na ang lahat ng gulo, lahat ng tsismis-tsismis.
"Ako minsan lang nagsalita, alam naman ninyo ‘yon.Nagsalita ako at ang sinagot ko, issues. I never diverted from issues. I onlywent to the issues, answer the issues, and after that, I kept quiet, okay. Therewere many things that started to happen again, which I kept quite and I neverbothered to answer it and everything.
"For the sake of myson and for the sake of Inah, I kept quiet. I didn't want to say anythingbecause I supported my son two hundred percent, and I always have supported themin any way that they wanted. They wanted to get married, I gave them the moneyand all of that. So for me, now that the wedding is over, I'm happy andeverything is back to normal. So our life also is back to normal now," pahayagng ama ni Vince.
"WALKOUT" ISSUE. May lumabas ding balita na muntik nang mag-walkout si Mr.del Rosario during the wedding ceremony. Totoo ba ito?
"Ang istorya talaga sa wedding was that when I arrived... Iwas the first one to arrive, ‘no. Kinausap ako ng...the person that wasin-charge, coordinator of the wedding. They were telling me to sit down infront with Bong. I said no. I'm comfortable here in the back. I wouldrather stay with my wife and stay in the back.
"So they were trying to convince me, but they were not ableto convince me until the latter part when they told me, ‘Please lang,it's for the sake of the children. Why don't you stay beside Bong?' So Isaid, ‘Okay, in that case, if that's for the children, I will do it.'
"But then, when I said yes, after a while, I saw the oldman, the [former] Senator [Ramon Revilla, Sr., Bong's father] walking and going towardsto where I was supposedly seated. I said hello to him. I greeted him and all ofthat. So, nung nakita ko doon siya umupo, ang feeling ko, hayaan mo na yung senador angumupo doon.
"Dalawa silang senador na umupo doon at sabi ko ditona ako [sa likod]. Happy na ako kasama ang asawa ko. So when I was goingback, sinundan ako ni Ipe [Phillip Salvador, Bong's close friend]. Sabi saakin ni Ipe, ‘Jorge, meron kang pwesto diyan sa harap at dito ka na umupo. Sabiko, ‘Ipe, nandun na yung senador and I really don't have to sit down therebecause I'm comfortable to where I am. Sabi ni Ipe, ‘Doon ka na maupo katabi ngmga ninong.' So that's why doon na ako naupo kasama ng mga ninong," lahad niya.
Nilinaw ulit ni Mr. del Rosario na hindi siya nag-walk outsa simbahan.
"No, there was no truth to that," diin niya. "There wasno truth to that, absolutely. I really went to the wedding and I stayed on thewedding until the ceremony was over. So I never walked out, but Ileft the church early. After the picture taking and everything, I did not waitfor everybody to leave. I left early. Maybe that's what they say I walked out,but I never walked out.
"I never walked out in church. Istayed in church and I had no intention of walking out. Binigyan ko lang nggalang yung matandang senador na makaupo kasama ni Bong, so that both ofthem will be there."
Wala bang naka-allot na seat para sa kanya?
"Ah, I really don't know," sagot ni Mr. del Rosario. "As Isaid, I was never part whatever the committee was. I never knew any detailof the wedding."
"HARD TO GET." Nagpaka-hard to get din daw ang mga Del Rosario pagdating sapagpapa-picture sa altar ng simbahan. Ano ang masasabi ng ama ni Vince tungkoldito?
"That is true because I am not showbiz and I've never beenin showbiz," kumpirma niya. "My family has always been private. We alwayswanted to be private. So, in other words, the only picture taking I wanted todo was that with my immediate family.
"When they call me, I went there. But anything after that, Isaid no more because I'm not showbiz. They even had a picture taking when theyarrived in Shangri-La, which I never wanted to join because I'm not showbiz."
Pagkatapos ng kasal ay nagpunta rin daw sila sa reception.
"Nauna kaming nagpunta sa reception. Ang nangyari doon ay pumasok pa ako sa isang holding place na doon nagkakaroon ng picturetaking ng mga bata, ng everybody. But when I saw that...I turned around, I wentup, maling kuwarto yung napasukan ko," kuwento ni Mr. del Rosario.
Hindi ba sila na-inform kung saang kuwarto sila papasok?
"No, no. I was never informed," sagot niya. "After that,umakyat na ako sa itaas. We waited for them to finish and it took them tobe interviewed for the picture taking and everything. So I waited."
Nagkaroon ba ng chance na magkausap sila nina Senator Bongat Lani Mercado sa wedding at sa reception?
"I have not talked to Bong and Lani. After the wedding,I wished them well when I saw them. Until now, I haven't talked to them,"pag-amin ni Mr. del Rosario.
INAH MEETS VINCE'S FAMILY. Kinumusta rin namin kay Mr. del Rosario ang bagong kasal na sina Vince at Inah.
"Oh, they are very well. As a matter of fact, it's my father'sfirst death anniversary last night [June 4]. They were all there. We haddinner, so my whole family, the whole Del Rosario clan was there, and Inah wasable to meet the whole Del Rosario family."
How is Inah with the Del Rosarios?
"I don't think sheshould feel anything because my family welcomed her with open arms. So, walatalaga siyang problema sa pamilya."
Ano ang masasabi niya sa paulit-ulit na pagbanggit ng mgaRevilla kay Vince na huwag nilang paiiyakin si Inah?
"Well, there's no truth to that. Siguro guni-guni nina Bongat Lani na paiiyakin ko ang anak nila. It's probably typical parentsworrying about what will happen to their daughter. But then, as I said, Ialways welcome Inah, my family always welcome Inah with open hands.
"So, there's really nothing to worry about. My son isnow being groomed to be one, one of them, isa lang ‘yan, e. Maramingmagpipinsan ‘yan, maraming magkakapatid ‘yan. Groomed so that one of them cantake care of our family business. So, that's basically how Vince is doing rightnow. He's okay. He still studying. He's trying to finish in Mapua but he'lltransfer, I think, in Ateneo after a year," lahad ni Mr. del Rosario.
Saan ngayon nakatira sina Vince at Inah?
"Doon sa condo. They are in their condo now and both of themhopefully are very happy. They were thankful and they were happy, and I'm gladthey are happy."
Right after the wedding ay papasok pa raw si Vince sa Mapua.
"Yes, up to now, he's still been going to school becausethat was my father's wish. In my father's will, he said that everybody willhave to finish schooling before they can work in the company and this theyknow, all of them. Or else they will not be able to enter the company."
Excited na ba si Vince na makita ang anak nila ni Inah?
"I think they're both excited. Yes, especially my son. Ithink he's excited to see his daughter. It is the first Del Rosario that willcome out. I did not say my first apo. I just said first Del Rosario.
"Vince is very nice person, very good boy. I think Inah islucky to have Vince so as Vince is lucky to have Inah. Both of them are bothlucky. And they are really both in love. So I'm glad that they are both inlove, and I hope they will stay in love for the rest of their lives and I wish them well."
What about his friendship with Senator Bong?"The friendship? I won't be here. I'll be out, so Idon't know what friendship we are talking about," pagtatapos ni Mr. delRosario.
