Judy Ann Santos understands Sharon Cuneta’s move to defend Kiko Pangilinan

Judy Ann Santos says that she would feel angry if her husband Ryan Agoncillo was accused of something that he did not do. "Ako man, dumaan man si Ryan halimbawa sa ganyang sitwasyon, at alam ko sa sarili ko na hindi ganyan ang asawa ko, magpupuyos rin naman ang dibdib ko,” said Judy Ann.


As a wife herself, Judy Ann Santos understands why Sharon Cuneta has once again resorted to Twitter to air her grievances.

When Senator Jinggoy Estrada gave his privilege speech last September 25, he named Miriam Defensor Santiago, Alan Peter Cayetano, Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, and Manny Villar as some senators who allegedly misused their Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) or pork barrel fund.

Sharon, Kiko’s wife, responded by issuing a challenge through her Twitter account:

"If anyone reading this can prove to me that my husband has stolen any amount from his PDAF in his 12 years as senator, I will give you P10 million in cash and I will leave my husband. That is how confident I am.”

During the September 26 press conference of her new game show Bet On Your Baby, Judy Ann defended Sharon’s right to express herself.

“Ako, I understand what Ate Sharon is going through, kasi asawa siya, di ba?

"Ako man, dumaan man si Ryan [Agoncillo, Juday’s husband] halimbawa sa ganyang sitwasyon, at alam ko sa sarili ko na hindi ganyan ang asawa ko, magpupuyos rin naman ang dibdib ko.

"So, intindihin natin ang bawat partner ng politician, especially yung may mga paraan para ilabas ang saloobin nila.

"Wala akong nakikitang mali. Karapatan natin yun na magsabi ng sama ng loob.

"Nama-magnify lang, kasi mga artista. I guess, kung normal lang na tao o ordinaryong tao ang gagawa nun, baka suportahan pa.

"With Ate Sharon’s case, lahat na lang ng sabihin niya, negative.

"Huwag naman. Huwag naman kasi may karapatan siya."

In her Twitter account, Sharon expressed her surprise over what Jinggoy did considering that he is her “kumpare.”

PORK BARREL CONTROVERSY. What is Juday’s reaction to this pork barrel fund controversy, which is already affecting the relationships of people close to her?

She said, “Ayokong mag-single out ng mga politicians, kasi I’m sure hindi lang ito yun.

"Ito lang ang nakikita natin, pero I’m sure mayroon pa.

"Ang sa akin lang, bakit naging ganito? Bakit umabot sa ganito? Dapat hindi.

“Sa akin, bilang mamamayang Pilipino, lahat tayo bilang nagtatrabaho, lahat tayo may karapatan at responsibility na magbayad ng tax.

"Sa kabilang banda, feeling ko, right rin naman natin at responsibilidad rin natin na malaman kung saan napupunta yung tax na ‘yan.

“Kakatapos lang ng kaso ko sa BIR [Bureau of Internal Revenue]! Saan napunta yung ibinayad ko? Inipon ko ng ilang taon yun.

"May sarili akong account para mabayaran yun! Siyempre, yung puso mo, gustong sumabog.

“Dugo, pawis, at literal na luha ang involved diyan! Saan napunta?”

Juday expressed her wish for Filipinos someday: to get tax reimbursements from the government.

“Sana naisip nila muna ang kalamidad na nangyari sa atin, at ilang tao ang namamatay tuwing bumabagyo at bumabaha.

"Sana dun na lang nila itinutok ang pork barrel.

“Well, aware naman tayo na nanakawan tayo ng malaking halaga at hindi lang ito basta-basta pera—ten billion. Ang laki ng puwedeng magawa nun, ha.

“Sa ibang bansa nga, kung nagawa na nila ang dapat gawin, tulad sa Hong Kong, yung tax, ibinalik sa tao!

"Kailan kaya natin mae-experience yun?”

How does she feel that entertainment celebrities are involved in this controversy?

“Ang hirap magsalita, di ba? Kasi baka naman sabihin pumapanig ako at may pinoprotektahan ako.

"Ang sa akin lang, i-disregard na natin yung thought or yung idea na these are celebrities na naging politicians.

“It just so happened na merong politicians na involved at hindi lang masyadong nailalabas.

"Maybe because they are not celebrities. I’m not sure.

"Siguro kailangan pang iproseso. Huwag nang tagalan ang proseso, bilisan na natin, kasi ang dami nang dumadating na bagyo at calamities.

“Ang sa akin lang, let’s get to the bottom of this. Let’s finish this already and hanapan na ng solusyon.

“Stop pinpointing and solusyunan na ito. Tapusin na.

"Kasi the more na pinapatagal, the more na tayo ay nananakawan.

"Wala namang nare-resolve na issue. Kuda nang kuda [daldal nang daldal] ang mga tao, pero wala namang natatapos.

"Sana bawat kuda, may natatapos. E, wala.”
