Mavy and Cassy Legaspi have been told to save up since they started earning last year.
The twins, who turned 18 last January 6, joined the roster of GMA Network’s talent management in July 2018.
Their initial projects included being mainstays of the Kapuso weekly variety show Studio 7, and co-hosts of the talk show Sarap 'Di Ba? with their mom Carmina Villarroel.
Speaking to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), the two siblings said they made an agreement with their parents Carmina Villarroel and Zoren Legaspi about how they will handle their earnings.
Carmina asked the twins, "Ano bang napag-usapan natin sa suweldo niyo?"
Cassy readily replied, "Walang gastos muna. Save-save muna."
Mavy agreed, "Ako din save muna."
Carmina then hinted that the twins are planning to save up for something big.
"Yun ba ang napag-usapan? Parang nalimutan na nila yung napag-usapan namin.
"Pero tama naman yung save-save. Pero kung ako yung tatanungin mo, kung mare-recall ko yung pinag-usapan natin…"
At this point, both Mavy and Cassy stopped Carmina from revealing their plans.
Carmina concurred, "Ayaw nilang sabihin."
The twins, according to their mom, have their own bank accounts.
“Kasi yung commercials naman, lahat yun talagang naka-save yun. Alam naman nila yun. 'Tsaka nakikita naman nila yun.
“Kapag guesting-guesting, mga one-time, one-time appearances, sa kanila yun.”
Carmina did not say who, between her and Zoren, is in charge of handling the kids’ finances.
But the Kapuso actress shared that Mavy and Cassy are entitled to a certain budget.
“Meron lang silang budget, siyempre working student na sila. So gusto naman namin ni Zoren ma-appreciate nila yung kanilang hard work.
“So merong this portion will go to you guys kung meron kayong gustong bilhin—yung mahuhugot.
“But the big portion is for their future. To save up. Mahirap ang buhay ngayon. Naintindihan naman nila yun.”
Who is more magastos between Mavy and Cassy?
Both Mavy and Cassy smiled when Carmina answered for them.
“Eto si Mavy alam namin. Eto si Cassy akala namin hindi. Pero mamayang konti, merong mga package na dumadating.
“Namimili na pala online sa Instagram! ‘Saan ka kumuha ng pera?’ Ngumingiti-ngiti... Parang halos mukhang pareho lang.”
This interview was held late last year, at the presscon for Sarap 'Di Ba?.
