“Suma-inyo ang pang habang-buhay na pag-ibig!!!”
Television host Jolina Magdangal acknowledged Maris Racal and Bianca Gonzalez‘s quips about her being referred to as “Sta. Jolens.”
The host reshared an Instagram post that featured a screengrab of Maris and Bianca’s interaction on Twitter on Thursday.
Maris on March 31 tweeted with a crying face emoji: “NAURRR NATAWAG KONG STA. JOLENS SI MISS JOLINA SA MAGANDANG BUHAY. Kasalanan niyo ‘to.”
Jolina is one of the hosts of ABS-CBN’s lifestyle morning talk show, “Magandang Buhay,” along with Melai Cantiveros and Regine Velasquez.
Meanwhile, Maris’ tweet earned 13,100 likes as of writing.
Bianca saw it and responded: “Omg! Ka-eme, minsan muntik ko na din siya matawag na Sta. Jolens, buti napigilan ko.”
Director Antoinette Jadaone chimed in their exchange and dropped grinning-squinting face emojis.
Some fans of the ’90s pop culture icon have been calling Jolina monikers such as “Jolena Slaydangal” online. It stems from a fan Facebook page that has been posting memes and hilarious content featuring the former teen star.
Meanwhile, a search at the keyword “Sta. Jolens” on Twitter reveals a Spotify podcast “Ang Walang Kwentang Podcast” which has episodes with “Sta. Jolens, Tulungan Mo Po Kami” as part of its titles.
The podcast is hosted by Antoinette and director-writer JP Habac.
When she saw Maris’ tweet, the director also jokingly asked: “NAGPATUGTOG KA BA NG MMK THEME SONG PARA MAIYAK????”
“MMK” stands for “Maalaala Mo Kaya,” a famous long-running drama anthology show on ABS-CBN. (J. Malasig, Interaksyon)
